One Month of Using Vital Proteins Collagen Powder – Before & After of my Fast Hair Growth
I used Vital Proteins Collagen Peptides Powder for 1 month, and here I am sharing my results! Along with some inside info on why collagen is important and how it helps us cosmetically. Before & Afters Included!
What is Collagen
Collagen is the most abundant protein in our bodies and is essential for building up muscles, skin, bones, tendons and ligaments. It’s like the “glue” to our bodies and as we age, our bodies produce less of it, and lower quality. We are used to seeing this as “wrinkles.” Our skin has less collagen to hold our skin taunt, and we begin to form wrinkles as a result of this. So for most of us, not only is it essential for the body, but cosmetically as well.
The 3 main enemies of collagen, or the things that break it down the fastest, are smoking, too much sun, or too much sugar and refined carbs.
Benefits of Collagen Supplements
Collagen supplements help with building and retaining muscle mass, preventing or slowing down arthritis, and increasing or maintaining skin’s elasticity.
What we see as a result of re-adding collagen to our bodies is healthy, long hair, skin, nails, and joints.
Reviews found of others’ results…
In doing some research, collagen peptides added into daily regimens greatly helps post menopausal or part partum women struggling with thinning hair and joint pain.
A first-hand client of mine visibly showed 1 inch of new regrowth in her hair after reportedly using this product for 6 weeks. I actually had to see her in between color appointments sooner because of how quickly her hair had grown out the previous color. She reported her hair feeling much thicker from using the Collagen Peptides product by Vital Proteins that I am using today.
Initial Collagen Powder Review
Upon trying this powder for the first few times, these were my observations.
At first take, this powder is very light weight and colorless. The smell is almost non-existant but very neutral.
Upon mixing 1 scoop into my coffee, I noticed its very sticky. My stirring spoon would feel sticky, and as I drink, it becomes a little sticky on my lips as well.
I would not suggest mixing the Collagen Powder into anything thin, such as water of juice. I have found it goes best with something with substance, such as my coffee with creamer or a smoothie.
How I used Collagen Powder
I used the Vital Proteins Collagen Powder oncer per day. Serving suggestions were 1-2 scoops daily, however I wanted to get the most of my product and for this month’s review, used only 1 scoop per day. I mixed 1 scoop of Collagen Powder with my 10 oz coffee and 1 single half & half creamer.
My 1 month review of the Collagen Powder
The very first observation I made in taking this powder daily was the overall growth in my hair. This includes legs, armpits, bikini, etc. I was certainly shaving more often than I was used to, however this was a good sign in that it was working well. As far as my hair, I am used to it growing 1 inch every 6 weeks, therefore, without the collagen in this experiment, my hair should have grown 2/3 of an inch. My results after 1 month (or 4 weeks) of collagen powder, was 1 solid inch in growth. This is 1/3 faster than it would have growth without collagen. So in a whole year, this would have leveled out to 12 inches (or 1 whole foot!) of growth, whereas without, 6 inches!
