Sugar Bear Hair Vitamins... Did They Work For Me?

-This post contains PR samples/gifted items, no paid content. All opinions are my own-

When it comes to hair vitamins I'm always kind of intrigued if they actually work. I have tried a couple before and have had mixed reviews so when I got the opportunity to try Sugar Bear Hair which are vegetarian, gluten-free and cruelty-free, I was excited to see if they actually live up to their claims because I've definitely seen a lot of positive results popping up on my insta and facebook feed.

So talking of claims... what do Sugar Bear Hair claim their hair vitamins will do? 

Because their gummies are formulated with hair-friendly vitamins such as biotin, folic acid and vitamin D they should technically make your hair grow, no matter what your gender is. They say that you should chew and swallow 2 of their Berry flavoured gummy bears per day to get the nutrients you need to make your hair grow and feel healthier. They also claim that they are easy to swallow and also easy on the stomach.

They also don't contain soya, dairy or any hormones. A bottle of 60 gummies will last 30 days (which are the ones I was gifted RRP £24.66* on the SBH website) but they also state that the vitamins work best if taken for a minimum of 3 months but best results are at 6 months.

Also for reference I've inserted the supplement facts from the website below...

-This is probably one of the most unflattering photos I've ever taken so I apologise haha-
My hair is what I would call a kind-of grown out lob in terms of length and it seemed to have gotten stuck at a certain weird length and I was hoping that the Sugar Bear Hair gummies would give my hair cycle a bit of a kick to get my hair to start growing again because I'm debating on growing it long again like how it used to be. If you look at my hair in the above "Before" photo my real length is the length you can see at the back if you get what I mean. The front parts look longer because of the positioning of the camera and how I'm standing (I guess?). So yeah, it's what I would call an awkward length for me personally. I like to have quite a blunt cut because since I've been unwell I've noticed that my hair has been thinning out a lot more than usual and obviously having a blunt cut kind of gives an illusion of thicker hair.

So what did I think of the vitamins and did they do any for me?
First of all I've got to say that they taste super yummy! They basically like sweets which is a big plus. As I've mentioned before I have tried a few vitamin brands before and they taste okay but not amazing. Sugar Bear Hair are definitely the nicest tasting vitamins I've ever tried. I also think they are cute but obviously it's what's inside that counts but I mean they are very insta-friendly. You can't deny that, can you?

In terms of if they worked for me I'll be honest I feel like they've worked more in terms of helping my hair feel healthier and thicker and just more manageable rather than significantly improving the growth. It isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's just they worked in a different way than I was hoping. I do feel like they have kick started my hair cycle again though and I do think my hair has grown a little over the past month, whereas it was just pretty much dormant prior to taking the vitamins. I've also noticed that my nails have been a lot healthier which I'm pretty sure is down to the vitamins too - so I guess you could say that's an added bonus.

I also agree with the claim that the vitamins are easy on the stomach because I do have gastritis which is basically chronic stomach inflammation and I have to take pills daily for it and I haven't found that the vitamins have upset or caused my stomach any harm.

Overall I feel like they've done something but I would've loved to have seen more hair growth after the first month. However I would potentially pick them up again though to trial them out for a further amount of time.

Have you tried any hair vitamins before? What did you think?

  1. I have seen these vitamins absolutely everywhere online and on social media, and I really want to try them out!
    A few months ago I began a hair journey of keeping my hair completely natural (after straightening it everyday for about 12 years) to regain my natural curl pattern. Since you've said that these gummies help more with the look and feel of the hair rather than the length, I want to try them even more now!
