Collagen Promotes Hair Growth & Strength

Using collagen for hair growth and hair strength all comes down to keratin.

Your hair is primarily made up of the protein keratin, which is produced by using several amino acids as building blocks to create the protein.

When collagen is consumed, your body breaks it down into amino acids that are used to build new proteins and compounds. Some of these amino acids that collagen gets broken down into are the same ones used to create keratin – most notably proline. Proline is the main component of keratin, and can be found in all of our collagen products.

Bottom Line: Collagen is rich in amino acids that your body uses to build and strengthen hair and consuming the protein can lead to healthier hair.

Collagen May Prevent Hair Thinning

Using collagen for hair thinning prevention all comes down to your hair roots and the area of skin surrounding them.

While there currently is not a conclusive reason as to why our hair gets thinner as we get older, some scientists believe that the middle layer of our skin (the dermis) that contains the root of each individual hair is the reason.

Collagen makes up 70% of our dermis and is the key contributor to the elasticity and strength of our dermis. Around age 25, our bodies start to slow down the production of collagen and become less efficient in replenishing the cells in the dermis. Knowing this, we can why replenishing the collagen in our body (and our dermis) becomes important to preventing thinning hair.

Bottom Line: Collagen is rich in amino acids that your body uses to build and strengthen hair and consuming the protein can lead to healthier hair.

Collagen Helps Fight Damage to Hair Follicles

Using collagen for hair follicle health and damage prevention all comes down to free radicals.

Free radicals are compounds that develop in your body as a result of: stress, air pollutants, poor diet, and alcohol. While the health of your hair follicles can depend on many factors, free radicals is one of the factors commonly discussed as a potential catalyst to hair damage

So how do you prevent free radicals from forming and potentially causing damage to your hair follicles?

There are several studies that show that collagen (especially marine collagen) may have powerful antioxidant activity. In fact, one study found that fish / marine collagen was able to fight four different free radicals, while another study found that collagen may be a more effective antioxidant than compounds found in tea.

Bottom Line: Collagen may have the ability to act as an antioxidant and fight free radicals from potentially damaging hair.
