About SugarBearHair

SugarBear Hair promises to be the sweeter way to a Rapunzel-worthy mane. The multivitamins — which looks just like those nutrient-enriched gummy bears that give your daily dose of vitamins A through Z — claim to provide everything you need to nourish your hair from within.

By snacking on just two SugarBear Hair vitamins a day, the product promises to help you:

  • Grow longer and stronger hair
  • Nourish your hair from within
  • Improve overall health
  • Increase hair strength
  • Improve hair elasticity
  • Stop hair breakage

A positive note for vegetarians, SugarBear Hair promises to be a gluten and gelatin-free supplement.

Who’s behind this berrylicious snack? The official product’s About Us page reads like a bad Dr. Seuss book, so we’ll have to verify their claims through science instead.

Hair — How Low Can You Go?

Before we look at what can help hair grow longer and stronger, let’s take a closer look at the different parts of your hair, what it’s made of, and what makes it grow.

There are three main sections of hair:

  • Root – The part of the follicle below the skin’s surface.
  • Shaft – The visible part protruding above the scalp.
  • Bulb – Located at the root, the bulb is what supplies new nutrients and forms new cells.

Within your hair’s follicles — right below the skin’s surface — is the dermal papilla. This bulb is what generates new hair cells. While there’s a lot more to how hair cells mature, for the purpose of understanding SugarBear Hair’s claims, what’s important is that each strand of hair is made up of proteins that emerge from the dermal papilla. However, by the time these cells breach your scalp to form a strand of hair, they’re no longer alive.

Why is it important to understand how hair is formed?

Because what comes out of your scalp is reflective of what you put into your body. However, changes in your diet can only be reflected as fast as hair grows.

How Fast Does Hair Grow?

Most studies say that hair grows six inches (15 centimeters) per year — about a half an inch per month.

However, that average doesn’t take ethnicity into account. According to howstuffworks.com, Asian hair grows the fastest, at six inches per year. African American hair only clocks in at four. Caucasian hair? It falls in the middle, at roughly five inches per year.

Average rates aside, is there any truth to the idea that hair grows faster in the summer months? Pros say that there might be a marginal shift in the speed of growth thanks to an increase in UV exposure. However, it’s mostly an old wives’ tale.

Instead, it’s those natural highlights, which cause a line of demarcation from the scalp, that make locks look as if they’re growing faster during warmer months.

What Can Help Hair to Grow

While there isn’t a patented formula that can help your hair go from pixie to mermaid overnight, some nutrients have been identified has promoting a longer, stronger mane.

B Vitamins, biotin, and folate are often cited as key nutrients when attempting to encourage hair to reach new lengths.

Biotin, in particular, is frequently cited as a pro-hair supplement. Its uses go beyond general hair health to helping prevent hair from going gray and stimulate scalp circulation which promotes healthier hair growth.

How SugarBear Hair Claims to Work

SugarBear Hair vitamins contain Vitamin A, Vitamin C, Vitamin D, Vitamin E, Vitamin B-6, Folic Acid, Vitamin B-12, Biotin, Pantothenic Acid, Iodine, and Zinc. For flavor, the gummies are formulated with real berries, but also include coconut oil and “a dash of sugar.”

SugarBear Hair gives an in-depth look at many ingredients included in their supplements. We’ve already touched on the benefits of biotin, but here’s a summary of the rest:

  • Vitamin A: Commonly found in fruits and veggies such as peaches, spinach, and carrots, this helps produce sebum in the scalp and grow new cells.

  • B Vitamins: Found in vegetables like blueberries, strawberries, and kiwis, B vitamins (including B6, B9, B12, B complex, and folic acid) help produce iron, therefore allowing cells to function properly.

  • Vitamin C: Strawberries, kiwis, and oranges (among many other fruits and vegetables) provide high levels of vitamin C, which can help strengthen hair and improve growth.

  • Vitamin D: We get a fair amount of vitamin D from the sun, although it’s also prevalent in foods like milk, yogurt, and cheese. Not having enough can lead to unhealthy follicles and increased hair loss.

  • Vitamin E: Found in soybeans, leafy greens, and nuts (among others), vitamin E helps keep the scalp healthy, thereby potentially preventing hair loss.

  • Zinc: Repairs damage to hair cells while also keeping oil glands surrounding follicles in peak shape. It can be found in foods like oysters, red meat, and cereals.

We’ve stated above that the suggested serving of SugarBear Hair vitamins is two per day. However, the manufacturer fails to state how long it takes to see results or how much extra growth you can expect.

SugarBear Hair Pricing & Refund Policy

Consumers interested in purchasing SugarBear Hair supplements are given three choices:

  • 1 Month - $29.99

Each order within the U.S. is charged an additional five dollars for shipping. International shipping starts at eight dollars.

When purchasing the single month option, you can choose between a one-time order, or to receive automatic shipments every 30 days.

Of course, we’re not huge fans of autoship programs here at HighYa simply because they tend to result in unwanted charges and difficult-to-exit memberships. However, it’s refreshing that SugarBear Hair gives shoppers the option to opt out of automatic shipments.

SugarBear Hair has no information regarding returns or warranties, so it would appear that any purchase should be considered final.

Note that we’ve reached out to SugarBear Hair for clarification of both their return policy and how to reach customer service, and will update this review as soon as we hear back.

Final Thoughts on Buying SugarBear Hair Supplements?

SugarBear Hair vitamins are relatively new to the market, so there isn’t a wealth of reviews that we can cite to gauge their effectiveness.

However, it’s worth noting that all of the nutrients provided by SugarBear Hair supplements can be found in a balanced diet — which is important in achieving healthy hair.

Why not just snack on supplements instead of spinach?

Because multivitamins, like SugarBear Hair supplements, simply can't replicate all of the nutrients and benefits of whole foods, such as fruits and vegetables for a few reasons:

  • Nutrient levels – Because whole foods provide many different micronutrients, instead of just one, they can work together to provide more benefits than just one alone.

  • Dietary fiber – The dietary fiber included in whole grains, fruits, vegetables, and legumes causes your body to digest these foods more slowly, providing ample opportunity to absorb as many nutrients as possible.

What about that extra biotin boost? You can purchase a bottle of 120 capsules on Amazon for less than ten dollars — a far cry from almost thirty dollars a month.

Bottom line: If you’re hoping to get ahead in the race to new lengths, SugarBear Hair supplements could work — for a price. However, those interested in accelerating their hair growth might be better off first checking to make sure they’re eating a balanced diet, then talking to a doctor about a less expensive multi-vitamin, instead.

    First month of taking vitamins noticed a little difference in my hair. This is the second month and I’m seeing some major hair loss. Has this happened to anyone else? I’m going to stop taking them...

    Not worth the money

    • Australia,
    • Mar 22, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    I do NOT recommend these gummies. They are overpriced and I honestly did not notice any difference in my hair or nails. The only thing that did actually change was my skin, and I don’t mean in a good way! I had big, sore pimples all over my face and my skin became very oily. If you are prone to breakouts, then don’t take these vitamins! I kept taking them for about 4 months before I gave up. I had better results with a prenatal supplement, my nails have never been so strong!

    Open seal under cap - bad customer service

    • California,
    • Sep 7, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I purchase one of their packs and one of the bottles had the outer clear seal on, but when I removed the lid, it was missing the under seal cap and missing three vitamins. It looks like they used a recycled bottle. I, of course, reached them to get a replacement or money back and they never reached me back. They asked me to email them pictures of the issue. I did send them and asked them questions and they totally ignored me. I hate writing negative reviews, but it is not fair for a customer to be ignored.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Gummies for your hair?

    • Phippsburg, ME,
    • Jul 22, 2018
    • Verified Reviewer

    I purchased the gummy bear hair vitamins just a few days ago and have been taking them now for about 5 or 6 days, and I do have to say I already feel a big difference in my hair - it's a lot softer and a lot shinier than before. I keep running my fingers through it, just can't believe how much of a difference it made in just 5 or 6 days. I believe this is going to be great for your hair, and I can't wait to see what it can do in a month.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend

    I took these every day for three months and it made no difference to my hair whatsoever, my nails kept breaking, and in the end, I got fed up and got acrylics.

    I'm more annoyed because they are so expensive. I did further research and it is supposed to help your eyelashes and eyebrows grow, which it didn't in the slightest.

    This is a scam, and I am not happy at all!

    I think it's disgusting that you use women's weaknesses for money, as showing fake reviews of people having nice, luscious hair and we try to get the same results and fail. It's very disappointing.

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    Paid merchandise I haven’t received - poor customer service

    • Maryland,
    • Dec 4, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    Hello Sugar!

    It’s me again! I am a repeat customer and in the past, I’ve had no problems until lately.

    I placed an order on November 21st for 3 bottles of SugarBearHair during your flash sale just as my son did. However, he has received his product along with his shipment order form constantly updating him. On the other hand, I have yet to receive my package and at first, it remained in “pre-packaged” status, BUT I NEVER received it!

    So I reached out to you via Facebook since no one from your company would immediately respond to my email. Once I reached out via Facebook I received a response finally. I was informed by the photos below that my package was in route. Well, since then I’ve contacted the USPS only to find out that it STILL hasn't left the warehouse and they've officially opened an inspector general case while my postmaster is aware based on your emails and system updates! This is very concerning to me as I’ve NEVER experienced this with your company in the past.

    I completely understand it’s the holiday season but I’ve paid you for a product. Can you please refund my shipping cost and send me my product along with something for my inconvenience? Your website indicates it should be updated in 48 hours but today is December 3rd and the order was placed on November 20th. I’m now ALL OUT of hair vitamins (Order Number: 1690656725).

    Is my package really in route? Because it has been saying that it’s in transit and on its way to be delivered since November 30 but according to USPS it’s STILL in your warehouse and hasn't been shipped!

    Thank you so much for looking into this Sugar! I’m sure you know this is not how you treat repeat customers. I hope I have it by tomorrow as you (SugarBearHair) promised in your last email to me!

    Expensive lollies

    • Australia,

    • Verified Reviewer

    I have been taking these for just over two months, and there is absolutely no difference to my hair. I think they are just very expensive lollies.

    In my opinion, it is just another scam to suck women in, as with so many cosmetics, face creams, etc. All about money!

    Bottom Line: No, I would not recommend this to a friend

    SugarBearHair- good or bad?

    • Pea Ridge, AR,
    • Apr 7, 2017
    • Verified Reviewer

    When I first heard of these awesome vitamins that magically make your hair grow more than double its normal rate, I didn't believe it. I mean, if anyone has tried the biggest variety of hair vitamins, it's me. But I kept finding great reviews, and I had to see for myself, so I ordered them!

    The website was very easy to navigate, and it gave me exactly what I needed to know. The vitamins got to me within a week, 3 or 4 days (I can't remember the exact amount). It didn't look damaged in any way, so that's a good sign. The bottle came with a note (plus a cute sticker) and my order receipt. The note thanked me for purchasing the product, and the sticker was of a donut and their patented gummy bear posing.

    The first week I took the vitamins was great! I somehow felt a boost in my mood (that could've been due to the fact that I was excited about hair growth). The second and third week, I didn't pay attention to my hair, but by the last week, I could tell a major difference. My hair was softer, held moisture easily, and has grown an astounding amount (it was right under my ears and grew to where it touched my shoulders).

    All in all, my experience with these blue bears was amazing! I will definitely be buying again. If you want quick growth and stronger hair, these are the vitamins for you!

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
