Sugar Bear Hair vs Hairfinity: 3 Differences You Should Keep In Mind
Supplements have always played a big role in how me and Greg keep up with life’s crazy pace. For example, here are our routine Must Haves:
I know there are plenty of sceptics and it’s always better to get your vitamins naturally. However, sometimes things are simply beyond your control.
Hair growth is one such case. Sometimes hair just grows too slow, or not as healthy as you want it.
So far so good. But how are they different? In their dosage? In their ingredients? What about effectiveness?
Let me fetch my magnifying glass and run these two under its scrutiny. 🙂
As usual, an important note is to always consult your medical specialist before taking any supplements you’re not familiar with.
The boring, but vital part:
A look at their ingredients
The first thing I want to discuss here is whether both brands approach the issue of slow/not desirable hair growth properly. The key to that is…ta-daa, ingredients.
Unsurprisingly, both pass the test – but in different ways.
Hair needs a lot of things, but the proper nutrition (vitamins) and the magical Biotin are fundamental. Both Sugar Bear Hair and Hairfinity provide a well-spread, healthy mix of vitamins and Biotin.
Their formulas differ a bit, though.
Look at the HairFinity ingredients:
Now, let’s peek at what Sugar Bear Hair has to offer:
The first thing that stands out is the Biotin dosage. Sugar Bear Hair has twice the amount (5000mcg) compared to 2500mcg in HairFinity!
On the other hand, the latter has a tremendous amount of Pantothenic Acid (d-Calcium Panthothenate.) We can also see HairFinity rely on the B group vitamins as their formula includes Vitamin B2 (a.k.a. Riboflavin) and B3 (a.k.a. Niacin.)
There’s also their proprietary, trademarked Capilsona blend which I’ll talk about later on.
Conclusion: The approach is different, but both have the fundamentals covered. As you know, sometimes you can have different solutions to the same problem.
This is exactly what we’re seeing here too. HairFinity seem to make up for their lower Biotin dosage with other vitamins that are important factors for healthy hair.
Now, let’s move on to the more interesting part…
Sugar Bear Hair vs HairFinity:
3 very crucial differences to consider
People have different preferences re: drinking their supplements. For example, I have no issues with swallowing big pills if needed. Greg hates it.
Similarly, I’m not a vegetarian, but you might be.
Taste & feel: There’s a huge difference between these two.
HairFinity are your traditional type of supplement. Pills, not that big a.k.a. so-so easy to swallow, but still having a bit of a smell to them.
Sugar Bear Hair’s marketing revolves around them being gummies that are cute, easy to take, and tasty. And what do you know: it’s completely true.
If you hate standard pills and just want to chew your quality supplement, then Sugar Bear Hair is a definite winner. The dosage is the same.
Allergies & ethics: Yet another thing these two differ in.
If you have nut allergies or on a sugar-free diet, Sugar Bears aren’t a good idea.
The gummies both contain Tree nut oil (an allergen) and sugar. From an ethical viewpoint: they’re cruelty-free and completely vegan.
HairFinity is not for vegetarians as they include collagen and gelatin a.k.a. animal-based ingredients.
As far as I know, both hair growth supplements are gluten-free.
Special concerns: I mentioned HairFinity’s proprietary formula which it has been praised for.
A part of it is Horsetail. It’s actually a very beneficial, very potent ingredient for a lot of things, including balding.
Why do I know more about it? Well, Greg’s bald so at one point before he came to terms with it we were scouring the net for things that might help. Horsetail has a positive effect on slowing the rate of losing hair.
That said, as this WebMD analysis shows, it can be unsafe if taken by mouth long-term. The biggest offender is the Thiaminase (chemical) it contains.
Summed up in short, Thiaminase breaks down the vitamin called Thiamine (or B1). It also might contribute to lower Potassium levels.
In other words, you’d better stay away if you are already low on Potassium or have Thiamin deficiency. While the correlation between horsetail and pregnancy/breast feeding hasn’t been analyzed that deeply, it’s also suggested you steer away just to be on the safe side.
It sounds more grave than it really is, but it’s a crucial bit of info to know. There’s a big chance you are not deficient – not many people are. However, if you suspect you are, schedule an appointment with your doctor and talk about it.
But anyways, do these really work?
As with other supplements, this depends on a lot of things: sticking to your supplement schedule, your organism, your expectations…
Generally, both of these should have a positive effect on your hair.
The question is: do you expect to take them for only a month and see tremendous, luscious locks growing out like a jungle?
If that’s the case, you’d probably be a bit disappointed. There’s a reason both Sugar Bear Hair and HairFinity start you off with a two month package.
Supplements take time, and they take time because your body needs that time to adjust to the new changes. 🙂
I always like seeing testimonials, so here are two, one for each of these.
