Hair Vitamins 101: Why, How, and What You Should Use

Hey LUCY lovers!

No matter how long your hair is, we know you want it to look good, feel good, and be healthy - and there’s a lot you can do to make that happen! Hair that’s weak, brittle, dull, or gets greasy too quickly can be a big problem to deal with, not just for the time constraint of taking care of it, but also in how pricey it can get to invest in specialist products that will keep your hair looking lovely. 

A good shampoo, conditioner, and several treatments will help - but while these will make your hair look better on the outside, you’ll need more than that to really make your hair be better from the inside and truly nourish it. In conjunction with a good balanced diet full of fruits and vegetables, hair vitamins can help nourish your hair from the inside out, leaving your hair shinier, thicker, and longer. 

Here’s what hair vitamins can do for you. 


1. Grow your hair quickly

If you’re prone to breakage or your hair grows super slowly, this one’s for you! Hair vitamins can supercharge your hair growth so that your hair can give Rapunzel a run for her money really quickly, and they do that by packing Vitamin A into every little gummy. Vitamin A stimulates blood’s oxygen circulation, and the increased oxygen circulation to the scalp helps you get vital nutrients for hair growth. Furthermore, Vitamin A can help you produce sebum to keep the scalp hydrated, which can also help grow your hair healthier. 


2. Strengthens hair against hair loss

Hair loss can be caused by a lot of things, including stress, so if you’re starting to see a lot of hair thinning, you might want to start trying to prevent it from getting worse. WIth hair loss, Vitamin B7 or biotin can really help slow down hair loss, and the inclusion of Vitamin B5 can also help stimulate hair growth and support the natural keratin of your hair. 


3. Protects against free radicals

Like your skin, your hair is exposed to a lot of external pollutants: smog, pesticides, ozone, exhaust fumes - the list just keeps going and going! Vitamin E and Vitamin C are two important antioxidants that can boost your hair’s protection, however the body doesn’t naturally produce these antioxidants, and so it can be difficult to ensure that you’re taking in enough for your diet. 

Now that you know some of the benefits of hair vitamins, here’s a quick guide on the hair vitamins that we offer!


Hairburst Original Supplements

Want to fix your thinning hair quickly? In conjunction with a healthy diet full of fruit and vegetables, the Hairburst Original supplements are designed to work quickly, and come packed with biotin, selenium, and zinc for overall healthy hair growth. It can visibly improve fine hair with consistent use over time, and has a premium blend of vitamins and minerals developed to target the areas of deficiency that are most likely to damage hair. Best of all, it’s GMO-free, gluten-free, and full of natural ingredients! 

Hairburst Chewable Gummies

Struggle to swallow pills, but you really want to get your vitamins in? The Hairburst Chewable Gummies pack all the best ingredients from their OG product, but in a chewable form that makes it easy for those people who could struggle to swallow down a capsule. They come in strawberry and blackcurrant flavour with very little sugar and all-natural ingredients, and they pack the same hair-boosting punch as the Hairburst Original supplements - a must have if you want to dip your toe into hair vitamins! 

Hairburst for New Mums

If you’ve just had your darling little bundle of joy, you might be facing a specific issue: your hair is thinning out. These vitamins are specifically formulated for those who are pregnant or breastfeeding, and safely measured so that you can absolutely grow your hair stronger while still pregnant or breastfeeding. 

They’re specifically designed to be safe for new mums.
