Together, these vitamins work to increase blood-flow to the scalp, help stop excessive hair loss, promote your body’s natural oil production and improve overall hair. The Sugar Bear Hair Gummies are also made with real berries for a tasty flavour.


Cassandra had great things to say about it after 6 months of taking the gummies and her hair grew more than twice as fast as normal: she experienced 3-4 inches of growth all over her head in 6 months and her hair grew at an average rate of 0.65 inches a month, compared to her normal hair growth rate of 0.25 inches per month.
