Sugar Bear Hair Vitamins – worth the investment?

I first came across Sugar Bear hair tablets on Instagram – to be honest I regularly come across a wide variety of products along the same lines – products with bright, colourful, loud adverts which make a multitude of promises about what the product can do and urging you to purchase them as soon as possible! Some of these companies even make you sign up to regular subscriptions, and the majority of these companies often end up with very bad reviews – with examples of money being taken from bank accounts without authorisation, refunds being un-actioned and money back guarantees not being worth the paper they are written on.

I’m not usually taken in by most of the latest fads – unfortunately I’m one of those people who has invested in products in the past only to be disappointed to find they are a complete waste of money.

My hair has always been extremely fine and prone to breakage, I’ve always wanted much thicker hair but can’t afford the investment and maintenance of hair extensions, and to be honest was worried about the long term damage that hair extensions can cause.

After seeing repeated adverts for Sugar Bear Hair tablets, one of the first things I noticed was how responsive their customer services representatives were to Facebook and Instagram comments and questions. Unlike some products I have looked into before, there were no negative comments appearing about either the product or the customer service that customers had received, which was definitely a good start!

The Sugar Bear Hair tablets promise to “give you everything you need to grow the healthiest, longest hair possible”, it does this by:

  • Growing longer and stronger hair
  • Nourishing your hair from within
  • Improving overall health
  • Increasing hair strength
  • Improving hair elasticity
  • Stopping hair breakage

They also improve the strength and shine of your nails. The vitamins are gluten free, gelatine free, soy free and are suitable for vegetarians. They contain 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, coconut oil, and a dash of sugar. A full list of ingredients and why they are used in the vitamins can be found here.

The gummies are shipped Worldwide, are suitable for both genders and all hair types and have no side effects.

In the Sugar Bear Hair store they have three sets of products available;

International shipping from the US to the UK starts at $10 for standard delivery and increases to $20 for DHL delivery. Remember that the prices and shipping are all quoted in dollars, so make sure you calculate what the costs will be in your own currency  before you order if you are ordering outside of the U.S.

They do offer a repeat subscription service which you can opt out of if you just want the one off order, but otherwise they will send you a new bottle of vitamins every 30 days.

I began by ordering a months worth to try them – they do say you should start noticing the difference to your hair after this time. The suggested amount of vitamins is two per day so I followed this dosage for a month.

After the first month I really did start to notice a difference. My hair began to get thicker and I had far less breakage when I was brushing it. I also noticed that I had a lot less hair fall than usual and I noticed a difference in how quickly my eyelashes, eyebrows and nails were growing too! Some customers have said they don’t experience the improvement in eyebrows and eyelash growth whereas others have so it must vary from person to person, as I am sure most results do.

Before even finishing my first months supply I had decided that I wanted to continue to use the vitamins, however I was concerned about the price of them going forward, as a bottle a month would work out to be quite expensive.

I ultimately decided to order a six months supply (with which I did receive a free makeup bag and hairbrush) but decided that instead of taking the recommended dose of two vitamins a day that I would half this and take one vitamin a day. This meant that each bottle would last me two months instead of one and the six month supply I had ordered would actually last me a whole year.

I have been taking the vitamins for three months now – one month with two tablets a day and two months at half the recommended dose of one tablet a day. After three months my hair is stronger and shinier and is growing quicker and thicker than it ever has before. The real proof to me was one morning when I tried to tie my hair up ready for a morning’s gym session – I hate wearing my hair up so hardly ever do it but normally when I do, a standard hair bobble will tie round my hair four times until it is tight enough so that it wont come loose. On this occasion, and since then, I have only been able to tie my same hair bobbles around my hair three times, which shows the difference in thickness that the tablets have made to my hair!

Overall, I highly recommend Sugar Bear Hair tablets and would class them as a very good quality product. I would suggest doing as I have done and ordering just a months supply to start with to see how you get on with them. If you have several friends who want to try them at the same time you might want to order the three or six month packs to get the individual bottles and the shipping slightly cheaper than you would if you were ordering just one pack for yourself.
