Many women and men complain of brittle, damaged hair. This problem often becomes more actual as a person ages. Hair fragility and breakage can be caused by several factors:
- Psycho-emotional tension
- Dermatological diseases
- Hormonal disorders
- Malnutrition, including different diets
- Inappropriate hair care
- Effects of sunlight
- Collagen deficiency in the body
Hair breakage most often is caused by a decrease in collagen reserves.
Collagen is found not only in joints, cartilage and skin, but also in hair follicles. Hair mainly consists of alpha-keratin - a protein that provides hair strength and elasticity. Collagen, in turn, is required for the synthesis of keratin.
Over the years, after the age of 25, as the synthesis of collagen in the body decreases, the amount of keratin, necessary to keep hair strong and healthy, decreases as well. The hair becomes dry, brittle, split and broken.
We can say that collagen, which contains essential amino acids, helps to restore and maintain healthy hair and scalp.
Signs when you need to start taking collagen-containing supplements:
- hair becomes thin, dry;
- hair breaks;
- hair ends split
- hair loses shine;
- hair does not look smooth;
What do you need to do to make your hair strong and healthy again?
It is often recommended to use hair care products containing collagen or keratin, however, as we know from experience, this is not always enough to prevent hair breakage and damage. A more effective and proven method is the use of collagen to restore collagen reserves in the body.
Several scientific studies have shown that the use of collagen improves the condition of hair, makes it healthy, strong and shiny. Of the people in the study, more than 70% of the people involved in the study said they noticed an improvement in their hair condition after just a month of using collagen-containing dietary supplements.
To keep your hair healthy and shiny, collagen should be used daily, preferably for several months in a row.
