We are firm believers in a beauty routine that targets concerns at the root (no pun intended), as outward appearances can often be a reflection of what’s happening within the body. Put simply, ingestible beauty supplements like our hydrolysed marine collagen address the cause rather than just the symptoms. When it comes to the look and feel of our hair, the same rule applies.
The texture, growth rate and overall health of our hair can be influenced by age, vitamin and nutrient deficiencies, hormone imbalances, extreme changes in weight and other internal factors. So, if you want to boost hair health and growth, a holistic approach is crucial.
Whilst hydrolysed marine collagen is best known for restoring a youthful complexion, its benefits extend far beyond fine lines and wrinkles. For hair, collagen has been shown to promote hair elongation, assist hair regeneration, improve hair health and strengthen hair follicles. In fact, the visible transformation that Anna (our founder) saw in her own hair after committing to collagen supplementation was the inspiration for starting Vida Glow!
How Marine Collagen Benefits Hair
Repair at the Root
Collagen is the building block of strong, healthy hair as it plays a key role in hair follicle health. Hair follicles not only regulate the hair growth cycle, but they also work like an anchor to secure each strand of hair to skin.
Collagen works by surrounding each strand, keeping the connection to skin strong. That bond is absolutely essential and without it, hair becomes dull, fragile and sheds faster than it should. By creating a healthy environment for hair follicles through collagen supplementation, you can support the actual foundation of hair.
Marine collagen also contains an amino acid called proline, which can help prevent damage to follicles from free radicals. As a result, collagen can help promote new hair growth and protect it from breakage.
Amino Acid Boost
Vida Glow Marine Collagen is naturally hydrolysed, which is a process that breaks down the protein into smaller peptides and amino acids. Essentially, it ensures higher absorption of those amino acids and, therefore, better results.
Not only does the body use the amino acids to stimulate collagen production, but it also uses several of the same amino acids to create keratin, the protein that our hair is made of.
Vida Glow Marine Collagen is a rich source of hair-boosting amino acids like proline and cysteine, which improve hair texture, elasticity and strength. By boosting the body’s supply of amino acids, collagen helps support the scalp whilst also upping keratin production.
When it comes to collagen, we admit we may be a bit biased, but we love how it works synergistically with the body to enhance hair from the inside out, letting your natural beauty shine through!
