It looks like candy; the debate is whether it’s actually good for you.
These squishy, little, sky-blue gummy bears have the Internet in a frenzy.
The little bear packs a supplemental punch, including essentials like vitamins A, C, E, B-6, B-12, B-5, folic acid, biotin and coconut oil. SugarBearHair claims their product can reverse hair breakage while nourishing, strengthening and growing your hair longer and stronger.
According to The Trichological Society based in London, the average rate of hair growth is 1cm per month. Supplements, as stated in their research on hair health and nutrition, don’t have a profound effect on hair growth and “have not been shown to noticeably change this rate.”
The society does, however, stress the importance of proper nutrition, rather than supplementing missing vitamins and minerals to keep your hair healthy.
Also key to hair health: Protein and iron—which SugarBearHair lacks.
If you’re sold on the idea that these sweet treats could help your hair, a three-month’s supply of these gummies will cost you $79.99 plus shipping.
