Hair vitamins. Do they work?  Well, a few months ago I tried, SugarBearHair, the Instagram-famous hair vitamin soft chew that’s ranted and raved about by the likes of the Kardashians

Before buying a bottle, I wanted to make sure I knew what I was getting myself in for. I understand that it’s “just a gummy bear hair vitamin”, but I wanted to research the ingredients, side-effects, and study a wide variety of reviews before purchasing.

The obvious place to research would by Kylie Jenner‘s Instagram because she’s constantly snapping pictures of her “grillz” gripping one of those delicious, berry-flavoured jelly SugarBears. But, I chose to go against the biased opinion of Celebville and research  everyday people – like myself’s – results.

The reviews I read were mixed – some saying that it grew their hair while others said it didn’t. I didn’t want dwell on that too much because everyone’s hair growth levels are different. My main concern was the side-effects. According to SugarBearHair, no side-effects have been discovered.

There are no known side effects to the vitamins. Please review the ingredients to ensure you do not consume ingredients you may be sensitive or allergic to.

However, I read a few reviews online which said that the worst side-effects include hair growth in other areas (not just the head), and acne breakouts.

Did I want to try them after reading that there’s even the slightest chance that I’d turn into something that’s a cross-between the Oxy Dailywash advert and a werewolf? I think I did. Besides, I figured that – with ingredients being 100% natural, preservative free and vegetarian – it’s worth a try.

The ingredients used to make the SugarBears are stated on the website to be: Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin B-6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B-12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Iodine, Zinc, Choline, Inositol, as the active vitamins and minerals. The gummies are made with real berries for a deliciously sweet flavour, coconut oil, and a dash of sugar. Each SugarBear is Gluten and Gelatine free making it suitable for vegetarians.

The makers of SugarBearHair claim that these mighty blue-shaped bears have the power to grow your hair longer and stronger, nourish it from within, improving the overall health, elasticity, strength of it as well as preventing hair breakage. #RESULT
Hello, my name is SugarBear.
I’m a bear who loves hair. Black, blonde, brown, red and every color in-between.

I love all hair types. Not only do I love hair but I also love helping babes take care of their sweet locks.

I know how to make your hair stronger, longer and shinier. I decided to make you a hair vitamin to help you enhance the natural beauty of your gorgeous hair.
I formulated a vitamin using clinically proven ingredients that have been shown to promote faster hair growth, increased hair shine and reduce hair breakage. I also made the vitamins cute and sweet, like me.
Like anything that’s good for you, it can be a chore to remember to take your daily vitamins.
I made sure to make these vitamins so easy and enjoyable to eat that you’ll look forward to taking them every day.
No more missed hair vitamins means faster results for you. I think we can all agree that’s a beautiful thing.
I look forward to your thoughts on my tasty creation. You can find me @sugarbearhair on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter. I’d love to see your face.
I think we’ll become great friends. So here’s to fast friends and healthy hair!
Stay Sweet, SugarBear

I finished the bottle in a month  (after taking two hair vitamins per day, as advised) and  I’ve got to say that I didn’t suffer from the side-effects which I’d read about… However, because I’d only bought one bottle (as a trial) I wasn’t giving myself enough time to check if it lengthened my hair. Apparently, it’s only after three months of taking SugarBear that we begin to see visible results. WAH! #HeartbreakHotel

 Oh well! At least I can review the taste and shape/design/colour of it… *JOKE*

SugarBearHair tastes delicious, like a blend of berries (without the powdery, strong vitamin-y taste) and is light-blue in colour. The 60 SugarBears come packaged in a transparent bottle with a white cap which is delicately decorated with a light-blue ribbon – very cute indeed.

All jokes aside, although I didn’t give it a chance to lengthen my hair, I did notice a difference in the feel and look of it. My tresses/mane/locks felt stronger, softer, and looked shinier and healthier. So, I guess it did work for me in some way… Who knows, I may end up trying it for a full three months next Summer because I just love how they taste!

Would you like to try SugarBearHair for yourself? The price of one bottle retails at $29.00, which works out at £23.71 (exc. shipping charges). Alternatively, you can buy a three or six-month packaged deal that’s better value for money.
