Hair growth & support

The condition of our hair is one of the most important outward signals of our inner health.

Doctors may evaluate hair quality as part of a holistic patient assessment: is it dry or greasy; well-looked after or neglected; strong or brittle; thick or thin?

Perhaps that is why thick, glossy hair has become the most desirable hair type (or so we are told by the adverts!). It is a visible way of showing off our inner wellbeing on the outside.

Humans have always been preoccupied with their hair. Simply think back to early civilisations like the ancient Egyptians or ancient Greeks: artefacts from those periods prove that both took pride in haircare, hairstyles and ornamentation.

So it is no wonder that people today seek help if they feel their hair is lacklustre, brittle, thinning or changing in any way that is unusual for them.

In our youth, our natural hair growth might provide us with abundant locks, but it is natural for this to change as we age, whether it is in texture or amount.

Luckily, there are some natural tips and tricks to put some life back in your hair, from masks to vitamins that might help.

Tips for optimum hair growth and thickening support

  • Rub coconut oil into your roots
  • Stop blow drying and straightening your hair as it damages it
  • Chemical dyes also damage hair. Either put a pin in your dye habit, or at least try to swap out chemical dyes for natural ones (https://www.hollandandbarrett.com/shop/natural-beauty/hair-care/hair-colouring/)
  • Have a regular trim to get rid of split ends
  • Try massaging your scalp to get more circulation going to the hair follicles

If you have tried all of that and still are not pleased with the condition of your hair, you might want to consider trying out some products to support in your hair growth journey.

The best hair growth products

There are masses of different shampoos and conditioners to support in your hair growth journey. See our Hair Care section.

One nifty product that you might not have considered before is Hairburst Volume & Growth Elixir Spray which has tons of five-star reviews on our site.

One happy customer writes, “I have short very fine hair, this is brilliant, gives body and makes my hair feel and look so much thicker. Smells gorgeous too”.

Supplements for hair support      

One of the most popular hair support products is tablets.

These are usually vitamins and minerals that help support your hair.

An example of a great all-rounder is Viviscal Hair Growth Programme Tablets and Viviscal Man Hair Growth Programme Tablets.

Which vitamins are essential for your hair?

There are several key vitamins and minerals which are essential for healthy hair. A side benefit of them is that most of them are also great for skin and nails, too, which need similar nutrients.

Three of our most popular combined vitamin and mineral tablets for hair support are Starpowa Hair, Skin and Nail Gummies, Hairburst Heart Hair Vitamins Chewables and Vitabiotics Perfectil 30 Tablets.  

LQ Collagen Liquid Health Supplements Skin, Hair & Nails is a liquid formula you drink.

Meanwhile, Hairburst Hair Vitamins for Women 35+ not only has vitamins and minerals, but also contains extra collagen which can dwindle in supply as we age.
