How to make your hair healthy and shiny with collagen

Is your hair looking a little dull, lifeless or limp? If so, this post is for you. In it, we take a look at some of the clever ways how to make your hair healthy, shiny and brand new using collagen.

Collagen is a major component of hair and is essential for proper hair shaft construction. You can get it from certain foods, such as bone broth, but often only in small amounts. The best way to get what you need is to supplement.

When you take collagen, it acts on the hair in several ways. While it is an important component of the hair shaft, collagen may also do other things, such as prevent thinning and better protect your hair.

Here is what to expect:

May increase amino acid availability for hair growth

Hair is mainly made of the protein keratin, which is one of the reasons why many hair salon brands use variations on the word “keratin” in their marketing. When you consume collagen, your body transforms it into proteins which eventually make their way into your hair. Collagen provides hydroxyproline, glycine and proline which can all become keratin building blocks.

May prevent hair thinning

Age-associated hair thinning is a common condition. It primarily occurs because of a reduction in the elasticity and flexibility of the scale. The body becomes less able to produce its collagen, making it harder for hair to grow.

Supplementing collagen could help to maintain a healthy dermis and maintain similar hair density. Studies show, for instance, that women in middle age taking daily collagen supplements improve skin elasticity versus placebo.

May prevent hair greying

Collagen has antioxidant properties, which has led some researchers to suggest that it might prevent greying. In test tubes, collagen fights free radicals. Since there is evidence that these produce greying, including more collagen in the diet, could stave off this common sign of ageing for longer.

Kollo is a marine collagen supplement that may help keep your hair shiny and healthy while also potentially offering a host of other health benefits.
