The Benefits Of Absolute Collagen Supplements For Hair
In a recent trial, Absolute Collagen helped with improving hair texture, decreasing hair fall, and calming inflamed itchy scaly scalps - pretty impressive for a little package that delivers a mighty 8 grams of protein and all 8 essential amino acids.
Absolute Collagen Hair: The Science
The Absolute Collagen supplement contains the essential amino acids that the body requires, that can only be obtained from the diet, (i.e. the body cannot synthesize these essential amino acids). Amino acids are the building blocks of keratin, the protein that makes up the hair. They are responsible for the strength and elasticity of the hair, and support the natural growth cycle, and can be effective in treating disorders of the growth cycle where the hair sheds and regrows prematurely, leading to a loss in overall density. The amino acid cysteine is very important to the hair, and is produced by the body, and supported by the supplements contained within Absolute Collagen. Cysteine forms the covalent disulphide bonds in the hair, and these are the strongest bonds found in the hair and essential to overall hair health.

Frequently Asked Questions About Liquid Collagen For Hair
Will Collagen Make My Hair Grow Stronger?
Absolute Collagen can help to improve the quality of the hair when used as part of a treatment plan for certain conditions, it helps with blood supply, cell renewal, absorption of iron, and the overall strength of the hair.
Does Collagen Make Your Hair Grow Thicker?
It depends what is meant by thicker - the overall density of the hair is set by our genetics, it doesn't create new hair that will add to your existing hair, it can, however, help with keeping hair in the Anagen, (growing phase) for longer, which in turn can make the hair fell much denser in cases of excessive shedding.
Does Collagen Make Hair Grow Faster?
Unfortunately, the rate of hair growth is determined by the length of each individual’s Anagen Cycle which can be between 2 - 7 years, (growing Phase) and the rate of growth on average around 0.5 cm per month - so no, it doesn't make it grow faster!
Does Taking Collagen Affect The Feel of My Hair?
Yes, in the perception trial we conducted, every participant found that their hair was much smoother with a need for less conditioner, this change was evident as early as the second week of the trial and improved by the end of the first 4 weeks. When the trial ended and absolute collagen was stopped, hair texture started to return to what it was prior to the trial.

It depends what the underlying causative factors are for the hair loss. In the case of Telogen Effluvium, (an excessive shedding) if the cause is diet related then, yes, Absolute Collagen can definitely help in the treatment and recovery plan.
