Is Collagen Good For Hair?

9 mins read By Chloe De Lullington

Want to find out whether collagen is good for hair? Read our article, below, to discover what our award-winning collagen products can do for you.

Here at Absolute Collagen, we often speak how marine collagen supplements can improve the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles – but did you know our Absoluters have also reported that their hair feels smoother and stronger?

So, when people ask us if collagen is good for hair, the short answer is yes, absolutely! In this article, we will talk through the relationship between collagen and hair, as well as why you might want to explore our collagen supplements and collagen haircare range.

3 reasons our Absoluters believe collagen is good for hair

1. Hair feels smoother

If you’re wondering what collagen does for hair, then one of the most noticeable differences is how smooth hair feels. In our clinical trials for collagen supplements, 77% of participants said that their hair feels smoother after 12 weeks of taking liquid collagen.

But how does it work? Well, our hair cells are made up mostly of the protein ‘keratin’, and when we consume collagen supplements, the body breaks them down into amino acids which build new proteins in the body. These are helpful building blocks for the smoother-feeling hair that our Absoluters enjoy!

2. Hair feels stronger

Strong locks are a sure-fire sign of healthy hair, which is why taking collagen can be amazing at helping you feel absolutely amazing from the inside out. But don’t just take our word for it – a recent study found that our liquid collagen for hair gave 65% of participants stronger-feeling hair.

3. Hair has less breakage

We live in a world full of so-called ‘free radicals’, a.k.a the compounds from air pollution, poor diet, stress, etc. and this can affect how healthy our hair is, along with other things.

Collagen products, especially marine collagen, have been found to fight four different free radicals, which could provide the antioxidant activity needed to promote healthy hair.

As our own clinical trials have found, Absolute Collagen’s collagen for hair products can also help with split or ragged hair strands, with 60% of those trialled saying their hair had less breakage. Wonderful!

What's the best collagen for hair?

Marine liquid collagen is one of the best ways to take collagen for hair, skin and nails. One reason is because of marine collagen’s amazing antioxidant capabilities over other varieties. There is also the double win of liquid collagen packing more mg of collagen into a single dose!


Partnered with a healthy, balanced diet, marine collagen supports your hair, and could hold the key to a revitalised style. That’s why we only use 8,000mg of premium marine collagen in our collagen supplement to offer the absolute best results.

For the ultimate collagen hair treatment, take your liquid collagen either straight from the sachet or wash it down with a yoghurt, coffee, a smoothie, or tea.

How much collagen for hair should I take per day?

Throughout our lifetimes, our hair cells continue to go through a hair growth cycle. This consists of four different phases, each being fuelled by important proteins and amino acids that help you produce the luscious lengths you have today. However, when it comes to hair, our bodies don’t always have our backs.

When we’re not getting enough protein and amino acids, the first thing biology gives the chop (so to speak!) is our hair. That’s where we come in!

Each 10ml sachet of Absolute Collagen contains 8000mg of premium marine collagen, 7.7g of protein, and all the essential amino acids that your hair requires. Just take one of these sachets every day to fulfil your daily dosage!
