Ingredient IQ: Biotin

Have you ever had a really bad haircut or braved the big chop and then instantly regretted it? We’ve all been there and we know that feeling when you wish for your hair to grow quickly so you’re back to looking and feeling like your usual gorgeous self. But what’s a girl to do? Come to Grow Gorgeous! We have a variety of products which can help you grow those thick, luscious locks back in no time! But first…

What is Biotin and why is it so important for healthy hair growth?

Biotin is a B vitamin that it is thought to be essential for healthy hair growth. Although our body produces biotin naturally, ensuring we have the right levels of Biotin can be difficult and so supplementing this with products which include biotin, such as the Thickening Hair and Scalp Mask Intense, can encourage healthy hair growth, helping keep your scalp moisturised and making hair stronger and less likely to shed.

Biotin naturally reacts with enzymes in our hair cells that produce amino acids in our body. As hair fibre is mainly made up of a protein called ‘keratin’, our hair needs those amino acids to build hair fibre so it is strong and will not become dry or snap off so it can grow long.

Biotin also aids the body in breaking down foods and releasing energy and improving the circulation of blood throughout the body. If the scalp has adequate blood circulation, hair follicles are healthier and hair is supported to reduce hair breakage and hair is fuller and grows faster.

How to incorporate biotin into your hair care routine

At Grow Gorgeous, we have created a handful of products to help you get biotin into your hair care routine to make sure your hair is as healthy as it can be.

Hair Density Shampoo Intense thoroughly cleanses hair of any impurities, as well as breathing a wave of caffeine and biotin into the tresses to get that glorious, thick hair you’ve been longing for.

Hair Growth Serum Intense is a daily treatment which is applied directly to the scalp to promote hair growth straight from the hair follicle. As it also has biotin in, it helps provide you with those all-important vitamins to get healthy, fuller hair.

Back into The Roots is a product which is designed to exclusively to be applied directly on the scalp, rather than the ends of hair. It works to put bring your roots back to life and stimulate and lift roots to give your hair a voluminous look. The additional advantage of biotin being an ingredient gives your hair those additional nutrients to make it glow.

Thickening Hair and Scalp Mask Intense is a nourishing hair treatment which moisturises the scalp, with both caffeine and biotin giving tresses a boost at the roots. It provides amino acids, coconut oil and hyaluronic acid to moisturise the hair and scalp as well as promoting hair thickness and volume.
