One woman who suffered from this exact predicament herself decided to take matters into her own hands and develop a line of hair growth supplements – and they’ve received rave reviews.
If you’ve ever suffered from thinning hair or hair loss, you’ll know it can be devastating. In fact, it effects approximately 25 per cent of women and 75 per cent of men at some point in their lives.
Ann-Louise Holland, an alternative health practitioner and yoga teacher, researched the underlying problems to thinning hair and recognised it was possible to re-gain healthy hair growth. She learnt so much she thought it was ‘madness’ not to pass this information on with her own line.
And so Kansha Alchemy was born. The brand’s hero product, Good Hair Nutrient Complex, £39.99 for a one month supply, contains over 30 carefully-selected and meticulously combined essential vitamins, minerals and herbs.
The supplement is packed with selenium, silica, zinc, biotin which are proven to maintain normal healthy hair, as well as keratin building amino acids, plus saw palmetto and pygeum africanum and many other actives.
Ann-Louise explained the power behind her supplement to GLAMOUR, saying: “Good Hair is a nutritional complex meaning it has a mix of vital herbs, vitamins and minerals that work in a more sophisticated, multi-layered action to address the systemic causes of hair thinning, rather than just providing extra protein for hair.”
It seems Emma was on to something; her supplement has amassed hundreds of 5-star reviews. One impressed user said the supplement transformed her hair, writing: “I genuinely didn’t believe in hair ‘pills’ before trying this product but I was pretty desperate to do something after getting hair extensions which ripped out my already thin hair and made it look terrible. I just couldn’t grow it before taking these supplements, it would get to a certain length and then break off and I’d have to get it cut, and I do not look good with short hair. It was really depressing me tbh.
“I am really grateful to have found these growth vitamins, not only is my hair thicker but it also no longer breaks off when brushing it or when I shower and I can actually grow it. Within a month or so, my hair was growing properly from the scalp and it felt stronger and more resilient. This means the ends have gradually become less frizzy and smoother which is a big thing for me as you can see again from the 2nd picture, highly recommend – I’ll probably take these for the rest of my life this change has been so remarkable!”
Another customer said the tablets transformed her life after losing hair during an illness. “Thankfully this product popped up on Amazon ‘recommended’ notification and gosh, am I glad it did,” she wrote. “The results after just a month have been incredible (results are meant to be noticeable after 3 months). My hair has been *growing through faster, thicker and shinier. *My roots are grey, hence the new growth is very noticeable. Such a shame that capsules are quite expensive as it may prohibit my use year in, year out, but I have to say that whatever’s in them, they work amazingly.”
Here Are Sephora’s Best Products to Help Your Highlighted Hair Stay Vibrant
It’s important to take extra care with the products you use on highlighted styles not only because colors can fade or get brassy over time but also because hair naturally becomes more fragile after it’s processed and needs a little extra TLC. We set out to find the best Sephora haircare products to keep your highlights and lowlights looking as vibrant as the day you walked out of the salon, so if you’re currently sporting a highlighted look or have your eyes on a fresh color for 2020, take a look.
First, keep your scalp protected and hair hydrated with leave-in treatments or hair masks, and look for the nutrients, amino acids, and antioxidants (like vitamin E, rice protein, and blueberries) that can help with highlights in particular. You can actually bring life back into highlighted – or even twilighted – hairstyles by using these before your next touch-up, as even darker colors can start looking rather dull as time passes.
We combed through color-care goodies at Sephora, and here are 20+ products to protect your highlighted hair. Check them out ahead.
