I always approach something like hair loss with trepidation because there can be many causes and it’s something that can so deeply affect people, both men and women, I never want to be part of the ‘all you need to do is take is this’ brigade that offers hope where there may be none. However, I’ve taken hair supplements and I do think, on balance, that they’re helpful in maintaining healthy hair. Which is fine for me to say because I’m not losing my hair at this point although as time goes on I realise it isn’t as thick or well behaved as it used to be. I stopped taking all my supplements over the summer and I’m slowly getting myself back into the routine of taking them… currently, Hello Day Autumn, Imedeen and Viviscal but I’m always open to changing things up.
I’ve followed the journey of Good Hair because I know the creator, Ann-Louise, and her journey to keep her beautiful, long brown hair in great condition. I can tell you from personal knowledge that this supplement is meticulously researched by someone who has experienced all the things she has gone to such great lengths to find a solution to.
Good Hair Nutrient Complex contains over 20 vitamins, minerals and herbs (including selenium, silica, zinc and keratin) with each ingredient selected for good reason. For example, Ann-Louise uses bamboo sourced silica known to be far more potent than other forms of silica. It’s not just about what’s good for hair, but also about how well the body can absorb and make use of the ingredients to give proper follicular function. A tip, by the way, from Ann-Louise, is to take a pro-biotic because hair loss and poor digestion are often related.
So, Good Hair contains all the nutrients your body needs to make ‘good’ hair. It contains DHT* blockers (DHT is a key cause of male pattern baldness, sometimes known as androgenic alopecia, and despite the name, women can also be affected), and it contains the vitamins and minerals needed to encourage hair to stay in the growth period for longer – and therefore less shedding. It’s strange, but the US are far more advanced on the causes of hair loss than the UK is and they talk far more about DHT than any UK information. The bottom line is, however, that definitive causes are always elusive – either nobody is prepared to commit or there simply isn’t enough research.
But, enough is known to say that supplements can make a difference – immensely to some – if they’re the right ones. Hair loss is tied into so many functions and aspects of the body – hormones, enzymes, cells and proteins (to name a few) and how they all talk to each other. It’s different for everyone. But what is known is that you can help everything communicate better to result in fuller, healthier hair. So, I can’t tell you more other than using her own research and methods which are now all poured into Good Hair, Ann-Louise is now a former sufferer of androgen alopecia – she doesn’t have it any more.
You’ll need to stick with the program for at least a couple of months (also look out for strong, healthy nails as a happy by-product) before you will notice anything – and if you want to help yourself further, do massage your scalp. The extra blood flow to the scalp is helpful in delivering the nutrients. Good Hair is £24.99 for a month’s supply and you can find it HERE.
*(DHT is Dihydrotestosterone, a natural hormone derivative of testosterone which can shrink follicle size leading to thinner hair strands and eventually no hair strands.)
