Longer and stronger hair with gummy bears?

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.

Shiny hair with just two products

As you may know, I prefer organic products when it comes to my hair. There are three reasons:

  1. My scalp is quite sensitive and I have found that organic shampoos are the best for it. They help to treat dryness, oiliness and dandruff.
  2.  My hair is curly, so I need to use shampoos that don’t contain sulfates (they are too harsh for already dry hair) or silicones (they might ruin my curls by smoothing and straightening them too much).
  3. I like to use organic products, where I can and organic hair products just seem to work for me.

However – it’s not always easy to find good natural shampoos. I have tried some bad ones as well. Shampoos, that tangle my hair or leave my hair feeling dirty. I like my shampoo to feel like a regular shampoo. I like it to foam and to make my hair feel clean – but I don’t want it to strip my scalp from it’s natural oils (that’s the key in treating naturally curly hair!).

And guys – I have found new shampoo, that is amazing and a new conditioner, that’s almost as good – especially for natural hair or naturally curly hair. I’m talking about Evolve Beauty’s Superfood Shine Natural Shampoo & Conditioner. I got them both as pr-samples.

The shampoo smells amazing and it makes my hair feel smooth. It foams well. It contains baobab proteins, which boost shine by 42 % and softness by 27 % – they say that it’s better than dimethicone, which is a silicone. That is so cool and I can definitely stand behind that statement. As you can probably see from these photos as well, the shampoo definitely gives a beautiful shine. I can see myself purchasing this shampoo again, since the price isn’t bad either.

The conditioner has the same scent as the shampoo, but not as strong. When it comes to the consistency, the conditioner is quite thin and lightweight, which is perfect for natural or curly hair. This too contains baobab proteins, which plays a part in making your hair look very shiny and soft. This untangles hair very well too, which is important since I don’t use a brush. If your hair is very damaged or dry, this conditioner might not be enough for you. My hair is quite dry – the lengths in particular – but this conditioner is enough for me, especially when I pair it with my curl cream leave-in-conditioner.

In these photos I only washed my hair with the shampoo and added the conditioner and nothing else, just to show you the results using just these two products. I feel like my curls behave a bit better, when I use the curl cream, but I like these wavy curls too, which I achieved without the curl cream.
