WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW: The Benefits of Collagen And Natural Hair Ingredients

Founder of O Nutricia Lucy Tavares and founder of Alfros Hair Growth Products Aldora Chindombe on the benefits of collagen and natural hair ingredients.

THERE ARE NO TWO WAYS ABOUT IT, “genetics, moisture, scalp health and nutrition are essential for robust hair. When choosing your products, look for ingredients including Jamaican black castor oil, shea butter, aloe vera and peppermint oil to help stimulate healthy hair growth,” advises Founder of Alfros Hair Growth Products Aldora Chindombe.


“Sulfates may strip away moisture, leaving hair dry and lacking health, mineral oil creates buildup on the scalp, making it hard for products to penetrate it, parabens irritate the scalp, fade the hair’s natural colour and may lead to hairloss, and silicone builds hair over time, resulting in dryness and a dull appearance,” she says.


My hair grows quicker if I don’t touch it often and keep it in a protective style. Using ancient hair growth secrets has accelerated that growth.


Natural hair doesn’t grow. That’s a myth. It just takes longer for growth to show because of natural hair’s curl and coil pattern, which causes shrinkage. The length is still there.


Not exactly. Protective styles can be a great way to give your hair a break from high-manipulation styling, and your hair will be able to grow without you having to pay it much attention. But the solution isn’t to put your hair in braids and forget about it either. We recommend consistently refreshing your hair with moisture, care and restyling, leaving protective styles in for no longer than two to four weeks. “My hair grows quicker if I don’t touch it often”


Founder of O Nutricia Lucy Tavares says, “Collagen is an amino acid often used to build body parts, especially hair, skin and nails, and is typically sourced from bovine chicken and fish. Hair follicles use these amino acids to produce keratin protein for hair growth and elasticity. It’s also an antioxidant that fights free radicals that can damage hair follicles and make your natural collagen susceptible to attack. As you age, your body is less efficient at producing collagen and replenishing cells in the dermis. So, supplementing your body with collagen may maintain a healthy dermis and prevent hair thinning.


O Nutricia collagen improves your hair’s volume and natural shine. It has antioxidant properties that fight cell damage in the dermal layer of the skin.
