Why do I need hair vitamins?
Good hair starts with good health. And good health starts with good nutrition.
A healthy scalp, which is where healthy hair will thrive, is at its very best when properly nourished. The necessary vitamins to keep your hair & scalp in optimal condition are sometimes difficult to obtain through a regular diet alone. Nutrition goes to your vital organs first (yes the ones that keep you alive (like your heart and lungs) and it's only what's left that goes to your hair. It's the reason why hair is the first to suffer from inadequate dietary intake. This is why hair vitamins can make such a big difference to the health of your hair and scalp. In addition, you will get better results from your cut, colour and use of professional hair care products if you are growing healthy hair to begin with.
How do dietary supplements work to benefit my hair?
Dietary supplements work by filling in the gaps left by a regular diet and provide the body with the nutrition it needs to grow healthy hair from the inside out.
Hair supplements which includes capsules, herbal teas and blends have a specially chosen mix of vitamins and minerals. Used in conjunction with quality professional grade haircare products, will give optimal hair results.
The body prioritises your hair's health below that of other key organs such as your heart and liver. That's why your hair's health can often be a barometer of whether you are getting enough nutrition for whole of body health. In addition, the nutrition it needs are quite different to other parts of your body. Ensure you are getting the specific nutrients for your hair and scalp health as a lack could mean dull and lacklustre hair or at worst breakage, thinning and balding.
Will dietary supplements work for everyone?
Dietary supplements are beneficial if you need to raise your nutritional intake when a regular diet is not providing you with enough. If your dietary intake of a vitamin or mineral is adequate, taking additional will not provide any benefit. However, obtaining an adequate intake of vitamins is not always easy. Dietary supplements can help to fill in any nutritional gaps you may have. As nutrients are absorbed and used by the major organs in your body as a priority, your hair may unfortunately be one of the first places that shows signs of lack of adequate nutrition.

Whats the difference between taking a herbal vitamin infused tea vs a capsule?
Vitamin capsules such as trico.lab Good Hair Vitamins are made using specific amounts of concentrated, powdered extracts. You know what is in each capsule down to the milligram. Capsules are portable and considered by many as easy to consume, making them quite convenient - particularly when away from home.
Brewing a cup of herbal tea extracts the mix of vitamins, minerals and compounds from each blend. All the extracted nutrients are extracted in a synergistic amount, meaning that all the extracted ingredients work better when combined. If considering herbal teas for hair health or to prevent thinning and hair loss, ensure the product you purchase is from a reputable source and has Naturopath approval for safe consumption. trico.lab organic hair detox tea blend and trico.lab hair regenerate tea blend are both Naturopath approved and made in Australia. For those who don’t like capsules or find them difficult to swallow, brewed teas are a great alternative and can also provide a relaxing and beneficial ritual at home or at work.

There is NO sugar in any of products. Unlike gummies which contain relatively high amounts of sugar, trico.lab products contain no sugar or sugar substitutes.
