Drinkable Hair Supplements: Why We Made One

Hair fall can be tough. How many times has your hair fall made you desperate enough to scour through google looking for a solution. In desperation you scour through google looking for a solution. A hair oil enriched with 50 active ingredients? A hair serum with triple advanced formulation (honestly, what does that even mean), perhaps? No, a 3-in-1 shampoo that tackles hair fall, dandruff and rough hair should do the trick. 

When we think of hair care, we often think of external solutions. While these are great for maintenance, are we really addressing the root cause of hair fall? It’s time we rethink our approach to hair care.

Hair care as we know it 

Commercial hair care products like serums and oils have their place in our routines, but they might not be the ultimate solution for long-term hair health. These products primarily work on the surface, addressing issues like frizz, dryness, or split ends. However, hair problems often originate from within our bodies, driven by factors like nutrition, hormonal imbalances, and overall health. Without addressing these underlying issues, the benefits of topical treatments can be short-lived.

Many hair problems are symptoms of underlying health issues. For example, hair loss can be caused by hormonal imbalances, nutritional deficiencies, or stress. Dry, brittle hair might indicate a lack of essential fatty acids or vitamins in the diet. Dandruff and scalp issues can be linked to gut health and inflammation. By focusing solely on external treatments, we miss the opportunity to address these root causes. Drinkable hair supplements, on the other hand, work from the inside out, delivering nutrients to the hair follicle so that it thrives & remains healthy. 

Think of your hair as a plant 

Imagine you have a plant. You want it to grow big and have green lush leaves. In order to do that, you start to clean the plants from outside everyday. You scrub the leaves, the stem, put oils and serums to keep it healthy. But after some days, the leaves start falling. Why? The answer seems obvious right? The plant didn’t get the nourishment it should have - water, nutrient rich soil and fertilizers. 

Now, our hair works in the same way. Don’t get us wrong, shampoos, oils and serums all are great and needed for hair. But if it’s not getting the nourishment it needs from within, much like the plant above, the hair is bound to fall. Just washing or oiling our hair externally isn't enough. We need to target the root cause—literally and figuratively—by providing essential nutrients that promote healthy hair growth from within. This is where hair growth supplements come into play, offering a more holistic approach to hair care.

What Traditional Chinese Medicine (TCM) says about hair health 

In TCM, the health of the hair is often considered a reflection of the health of the blood. This is because our blood contains the nutrients required to nourish our hair. Good blood circulation ensures that the hair follicles receive an adequate supply of nutrients and oxygen. Poor circulation, on the other hand, can lead to weak, thinning hair. Proper circulation is considered to nourish the body’s tissues, in order to “feed the hair follicles” and thus lead to stronger and healthier hair from within. 

Another fundamental principle of TCM is balance. Imbalances in the body's internal systems can manifest as various health issues, including hair problems. For instance, stress and hormonal imbalances can lead to hair loss, while poor digestion can affect nutrient absorption, impacting hair health. TCM aims to restore balance through a combination of diet, herbs, acupuncture, and lifestyle changes. Drinkable hair supplements can play a role in this holistic approach by providing the body with the necessary nutrients to maintain balance and support hair growth.

This is why we made ‘Healthy Hair’: a drinkable root-cause hair supplement 

Healthy Hair, one of our bestselling superfood mixes, is made with adaptogens and herbs that nourish the hair from within. It was created keeping in mind the importance of blood circulation for hair health. It contains ingredients for hair growth such as amla, goji berry and bamboo shoot which are rich in antioxidants such as vitamin C and minerals such as zinc that provide the essential nutrients needed for the hair follicle to be strong. But without them reaching the scalp, what’s even the point! That’s where Nettle comes in. It stimulates the production and growth of red blood cells, leading to better blood circulation in the body so that the vital nutrients can reach the scalp. 

If you're on a journey to achieve strong and nourished hair, we recommend implementing 'Healthy Hair' in your routine!
