After an unfortunate incident years ago where my hair became so brittle that it was breaking away and had to be cut into a short bob, I’ve been making a conscious effort to treat my hair gently. Back in my uni days, I used to colour my hair frequently. One month it would be fire engine red, the next a deep plum. I used to love switching up my colour, but always made sure to pile on the conditioner and trim my hair to keep it looking it’s best, giving it treatments every single week. However, after said unfortunate incident that I won’t go into today, I decided that I would never try to change my hair from its natural colour again, and would instead embrace my red hair.
My hair is prone to dryness so I’m constantly treating it to deep conditioners, intense nourishing treatments and of course, lots of lovely oils too. A little while ago I was sent a lovely package from Grow Gorgeous which contained their Hair Density Nutrients – supplements focused solely on giving longer, denser hair by delivering a higher concentration of Biotin which contributes to maintaining normal hair.
I’d heard of the brand before as I actually use their Strengthening Oil daily, so I was excited to try the nutrients too as I knew this was a brand that I could trust.
The pills themselves contain a host of hair boosting ingredients including:
Biotin: Thought to be crucial to healthy hair growth resulting in fuller, longer hair.
N-Acetyl L-Cysteine: An amino acid found in the body that helps to build bonds that offer additional strength and support. This can help our hair by improving it’s natural ability to hold moisture and gives each hair strand a healthy shine.
Hyaluronic Acid: This moisturises the scalp and roots for healthy hair.
The actual pills are quite large but in honesty, they’re easy to swallow. I’ve never been the type of person to struggle with taking tablets at all, so I’m easily able to swallow these with a glass of water. They do smell a little, but I find this to be the case with all potent supplements so it doesn’t bother me at all. Grow Gorgeous recommend to take up to three pills daily which will deliver a hit of 20,000mcg of Biotin.
My hair is around 22″ long at the moment, and I’ve been taking the pills for a few weeks. Although I’ve only recently incorporated them into my beauty routine, I feel like they are making a difference to my hair. It feels longer and stronger already and also feels less dried out. It’s worth mentioning that I also maintain a healthy diet along with drinking plenty of water throughout the day, and I always try to keep heat styling to a minimum.
I’m really enjoying using the nutrients right now and will absolutely repurchase them once I’ve finished my complimentary tub.
