Longer and stronger hair with gummy bears?

sugar bear hair vitamins

hair growth vitamins sugar bear

I’ve always wanted to try Sugarbearhair vitamins, so I was more than happy to receive one month’s worth of sweet gummy bears (as pr) to see if they would work. Now I’ve finished my jar and I took before and after photos to show you the results.

So:

Do Sugarbearhair vitamins really work? How? 

To give you the quick answer – yes. Eating biotin in my experience is pretty foolproof way to make your hair grow longer and stronger. It usually helps your lashes and nails as well. I’ve eaten biotin before, so I expected to see some results from these gummy bears as well.

I feel like one month (the recommendation is two gummy bears per day, so one jar is enough for one month) was enough. Now that I think of it, I think it’s the perfect time. The other vitamins I’ve eaten before have lasted for two or three months, and for me that was too long. I could definitely see hair growth then, but possibly in some places, I would prefer not have that. One month was a good time for me to get some volume in my hair, but not have unwanted hair growth in other places of my body. Obviously this is personal, and maybe someone else needs to eat these two months before seeing any results.

How are Sugarbearhair vitamins better than some other vitamins?

I’ll admit – there are more affordable options out there for vitamins containing biotin.

But let’s just face it: the packaging does make a difference. The fact that the vitamin comes in a shape of a candy, that happens to taste very good as well, makes a difference. These gummy bears also happen to be gluten-free, dairy-free and gelatin-free. They don’t only contain biotin, but they also contain A, C, E, B-6, B-9, B-12 and B-5 vitamins. Basically I didn’t have to take any other vitamins with these. It’s a nice addition that there is B-12 in these, since for vegans or vegetarians getting that can be hard. Nowadays I do eat eggs and dairy so I can get it easier, but I used to be vegan.

Swallowing pills and vitamins is not my favorite thing and I don’t remember to take them daily. However – when I was eating Sugarbearhair vitamins, not once did I forget to take them.

Who doesn’t like sugar, right? I loved having a permission to eat something sweet – you know – for the sake of my hair and wellbeing.

Okay, if you know me at all, I’ll eat something sweet anyway…

I think you can see some hair growth there, right?

It may be a small change, but it’s a change for the better anyway. After my hair loss struggles, I’m happy to give my hair any help they need.

My hair is quite dry (naturally curly hair is dry by default anyway) and since the lengths are bleached, they are quite brittle. In both of the photos I am in desperate need of a hair cut, but I wanted to leave my hair untouched to show you the results as they are. I did cut my hair after taking these photos – and actually having them cut made them look even healthier and stronger!

Charlotta Eve approves! I think I will buy these in the future. And I do recommend them for someone wanting healthier and longer hair – and for those, who don’t like swallowing pills and want their vitamins to taste good.

Not to mention the vitamins are almost too instagrammable.

You can buy these on SugarBearHair.com.

A thing or two about jewel materials

Jewelry gifted by Hopea-Puro

Who else admits to buying jewelry, which you know you are allergic to? Especially if they are on sale and you can’t resist their sparkle.

Guilty as charged! But allergy is so annoying, that buying those jewels is useless.

Luckily there are jewels, that don’t cause allergies.

Did you know, that you can be allergic to jewels, that are supposed to be nickel-free?

It doesn’t necessarily mean that the jewels are bad or contain a lot of nickel. It’s possible your allergy is so severe, that even though the item would be according to EU regulations nickel-free, even the faintest amount of nickel causes allergy. So, ‘nickel-free’ can be misleading if your nickel-allergy is really severe.

Hygiene is also important when wearing jewels. Your ear piercings can get infected, if your hands or jewels are dirty. So always keep your hands and jewels clean!

Also: sometimes wearing too heavy or too tight earrings might cause you discomfort, that you might mistake for allergy.

Allergy & jewelry materials

Silver is a good and long-lasting material,  but you can also be allergic to it.

Silver-plated jewels are usually made from brass. Brass or bronze aren’t suitable for you, if your skin’s pH-level is significantly acidic. It’s not that common though. Then the jewel might tarnish easily and it might give off green color on your skin.

Stainless steel AKA surgical steel is completely allergy-free. The same mix is used in hospital gear and in piercings.

When choosing the material for your jewels, you need to think about how often you are gonna wear it.

If you want a jewel, that you’re  gonna wear day-to-day, you should choose a  long-lasting material. Those are gold, silver and steel. Silver-plated jewels are more affordable than silver jewels, but silver platings wear off from chemicals and sweating – so they might be a good choice for a party for example.

Steel is a long-lasting and care-free option –  sauna or perfume won’t affect it.

I can use silver jewels without problems, but silver-plated jewels only for a short amount of time. Steel doesn’t cause me any allergies obviously, so I like that there is an affordable option for jewels, that are still long-lasting and beautiful.
