Collagen for Hair Growth

Have you heard about collagen? It's become the go-to supplement for hair growth due to all the hype it's getting - people are raving about it! It's actually our body's most abundant protein and helps with strength, structure, and flexibility of our hair, skin, tendons, ligaments, muscles, and bones - including the scalp. Pretty cool stuff, right?

Did you know that collagen is really important for our scalp and hair health? Some people think taking collagen supplements can help stimulate hair growth, prevent hair loss, and even slow down greying hair. We need more research to really know for sure though.


It makes sense that collagen is important for our scalp and hair health since it's composed of amino acids which are used to build keratin, the protein that our hair is made of.

Collagen is also found in the dermis, the connective tissue layer that holds our hair follicles, and it helps to repair the dermis and skin at the base of our hair follicles. Collagen might even be linked to age-related hair growth!

It looks like youthfulness has its perks! Tests showed that the younger cells at the base of hair follicles used more collagen than aged cells. This suggests that, as we age, our collagen levels may decrease and lead to hair loss.

Type II collagen can be found in both marine and bovine sources and it is apparently super rich in hydroxyproline which helps build keratin for a healthier scalp and skin.

Here are some of the reasons why Collagen may improve your hair health

  • Hair follicles can be damaged by free radicals. Collagen may act as an antioxidant that can fight free radicals and prevent hair damage.
  • Collagen makes up 70% of your dermis, the middle layer of skin that holds the root of each individual hair. It's important because it contributes to the elasticity and strength of your dermis. As we get older, our bodies become less efficient at producing and replenishing collagen in this layer, which could be why our hair gets thinner with age. So it's important to make sure we provide our bodies with enough collagen so that we can maintain a healthy dermis and help prevent hair thinning.
  • Free radical damage could be speeding up the greying process of my hair, but collagen might be able to help fight it and keep my hair colour going strong for a bit longer.

 So, if you want healthy and strong hair, collagen might be a good option for you! It could possibly help you build proteins and protect your hair follicles from damage, as well as prevent greying.

 It's important to think about scalp care in the same way as you look after your garden at home.
