You may have recently seen stars of The Bachelorette/The Bachelor franchise promoting a new cute gummy blue bear vitamin called Sugar Bear Hair. The girls pose with the vitamin on their lips/tongue and post the picture on Instagram to share their new found secret with the world.
And it isn’t just The Bachelorette girls who have joined this new fad, other more well-known celebrities such as Kylie Jenner and Vanessa Hudgens also swear by Sugar Bear Hair Vitamins. So, let’s examine the product a little closer.
Does SugarBear Hair work? Let’s examine the ingredients.
Looking through the Supplement Facts everything looks pretty normal. Most daily multi-vitamins contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin B-6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B-12, Biotin, Panthothenic Acid, Iodine,and Zinc. However, it is important to note that a multi-vitamin will contain your Daily Value if not twice your Daily Value of most of these vitamins. Sugar Bear Hair does not do this. Thus, this would not be a great supplement for your daily multi-vitamin as just taking this would not provide the needed daily dosage of vitamins.
The most prominent ingredient and the one which will definitely not be matched in your daily multi-vitamin is Biotin. Sugar Bear Hair has 5000mcg or 1667% of your Daily Value of Biotin in every serving/2 gummies. Biotin, or Vitamin H, is used to promote hair, skin, and nail growth. Multiple studies have shown that Biotin does have a positive result on hair growth and can help those aging women who have noticed a decreased shine in their hair or a thinning of their hair. Other vitamins that also promote hair growth are Zinc, contained in Sugar Bear Hair and Iron, oddly absent from Sugar Bear Hair. In fact, many women suffer from iron deficiencies and this is thought to be a leading cause of hair loss in women.
Overall, while Sugar Bear Hair does have a host of good vitamins and it won’t hurt to take it, a user could just get a good multi-vitamin and a Biotin supplement, such as this one, and achieve the same results.
Taste…This is a gummy made with berries, citrus fruits…and sugar. So don’t eat them like candy, because they kind of are. They won’t make you fat, but don’t go overboard. On the plus side, they are more enjoyable to take than swallowing a vitamin every morning!
Cost…A one-month supply, 60 gummies per bottle, will run you over $30 with shipping, while buying more, in three-month or six-month increments, will save you money. If you have Amazon Prime, I recommend buying from Amazon here as you will save a few dollars in shipping.
However, if you buy a regular multi-vitamin, which as spoken to previously this product should not replace, and then a Biotin supplement the cost is likely to be much cheaper. This Biotin supplementcosts $10 on Amazon.
You decide. Commonsense would tell us that these celebrity endorsers are getting paid to pose with the Sugar Bear Hair vitamin. Whether you choose to go with Sugar Bear Hair or a supplement, vitamins are always a great idea! I wish you all the best and that you soon have hair like Rapunzel!
