The best collagen supplement for hair loss
February 14, 2019
Hair loss for both women and men can be a psychologically detrimental occurrence.
So can supplements prevent or treat hair loss, and if so, which is the best collagen supplement for hair loss?
In men, hair loss is mainly androgenetic - that is usually inherited, due to a sensitivity to androgens (hormones responsible for the male features and reproduction) or age-related.
Hair loss in men has historically been widely accepted as ‘the norm’ - however with the rise of male grooming, guys today have real concerns about their hair, beards and moustaches.
Male or female - our hair is a feature that is part of our identity; it is an expression of who we are, and linked to desirability.
That is why male baldness and hair loss can have devastating effects on a man’s self-esteem, confidence and mental health.
To lose hair is losing a part of yourself - and more and more men are desperate to slow down the hair-loss process.
So is there anything we can do to treat, cure or prevent hair loss?
Although collagen is known for its skin properties - it is also the building block of the hair and surrounds each strand. It is key to a healthy head of hair.
Hair is primarily made up of keratin protein, which your body produces most effectively when the blood supplies amino acids. Therefore, when you take a high quality supplement, you gain the amino acids needed to build the keratin. Hair follicle cells use these amino acids to produce keratin protein.
Consultant trichologist Eva Proudman says:
Absolute Collagen for men delivers 7.2g of protein in just 1 sachet. Adults require around 50g of digested protein every day, and if you have a very active lifestyle probably more, so Absolute Collagen is a quick, easy and absorbable way to increase your daily protein intake - feeding the hair for optimum growth."
Because the benefits of collagen include strengthening the hair and promoting hair growth, one of the major benefits of collagen for men is to help with hair thinning and hair loss.
Collagen helps with hair growth and hair regeneration since it is a natural antioxidant.
The scalp is the growing medium for the hair and needs to be balanced and healthy. In a perception trial, Absolute Collagen reduced inflammatory conditions such as dermatitis and eczema. The scalp benefited from the anti-inflammatory properties delivered by the collagen, leading to a clearer scalp and improved hair growing conditions.
Add Absolute Collagen to any treatment plan and the quality of the hair and condition of the scalp really do improve - giving a much better result than just traditional treatments alone. Eva continues:
One of our #Absoluters, Nicholas Oakwell, sent us these before and after photographs of his hair after taking Absolute Collagen for 5 months.
Nicholas said: “Please see these images of my hair about 5 months apart. It’s certainly fuller, the quality and sheen is much better too!”
So although we cannot claim to treat or cure hair loss - the results speak for themselves.
And it’s not just the hair on the head that our Stud Boxes can help with.
Shaving is tough on the skin and can dry the skin, especially in winter. Using Absolute Collagen for men every day will help to combat this and prevent dry skin and skin sensitivity.
It is also important to exfoliate the beard area regularly, keeping the follicles clean and clear to aid healthy beard growth. Eva continues:
