Do hair supplements actually work?

Updated: Feb 11, 2022

Many people are now taking hair vitamins. Do hair supplements work? If you are worried about thinning hair, or hair loss, it might be something to consider.

Why are people taking hair growth supplements?

Hair loss is caused by genetic and hormonal factors in both men and women. It could be a side effect of medication or medical treatment, pregnancy, menopause or stress. Your hair should return to normal once the health issue is under control.

However, the other reason is poor diet or a nutritional deficiency. We all know that a balanced diet will help maintain our overall health. But are we eating enough of the right vitamins, minerals and proteins?

What you eat, your lifestyle, stress, and digestion all contribute to hair growth rate, quality, and condition. Tackling this problem has never been easier with the scientifically formulated supplements designed to support and repair damaged hair at the roots.

Best supplements for hair growth and thickness


It is a vital vitamin for hair, helping to strengthen and nourish hair follicles and promote healthy hair growth. It can also prevent hair loss.


The vitamin supports healthy hair growth because of its role in protein metabolism. It ensures that hair cells access amino acids needed to make hair protein, battling thinning hair.


Also known as Biotin, vitamin B7 stimulates keratin production in hair and can increase the rate of follicle growth.


A nutrient promotes healthy hair growth by producing oxygen-rich red blood cells, which feed hair follicles. Having enough of this vitamin is essential to the hair growth process.


Vitamin C promotes hair health, reduces hair loss and improves hair growth. A Vitamin C deficiency can also result in dry hair and split ends.

Coconut Water

Ok, we know technically this isn't a vitamin. But it's excellent for getting stronger hair. It promotes cell growth and keeps hair strong by stimulating the scalp. Coconut water can even help make your locks grow thicker.


A deficiency of l-lysine can cause hair loss. It is present in the hair's root and is responsible for the shape and volume of hair. So, getting enough of this amino acid can prevent the issue and promote normal hair growth.


Research shows MSM can form bonds essential for strengthening hair and influencing hair growth. It is a sulphur-rich compound with anti-inflammatory properties.


As it improves blood circulation, Niacin also brings oxygen and nutrients to the hair follicle, vital for healthy hair growth. It can aid in faster and thicker hair growth.


Zinc plays an essential role in hair tissue growth and repair. Found throughout your body, it helps your immune system and metabolism function. It also helps the oil glands around the follicles to work correctly.

Real Results

"Hi, I'm Louise, the founder of Freestyle Hair Design and a busy mum of 2 boys. I spent lots of time using all different kinds of lotions to help strengthen and thicken my hair. These products are great but weren't quite enough. I don't always have the time to do the masks, and the conditioners were not quite strong enough to boost my hair health. I needed some extra help.

As my customers know, I will not bring anything new into the salon unless we have tested the products ourselves. I've spent lots of time researching products so that you don't have to. I'm pleased to say I finally found the perfect solution to my problem. After chatting to customers, I have discovered I'm not on my own on that journey.

We chose Glowwa not only for their results but their company values are eco friendly.

They are a 100% vegan brand - they do not believe in using animal products for vanity purposes and never will. They are also 100% cruelty-free - all of the trials are carried out by people. All of the ingredients are natural and plant-based."
