As I mentioned last month, recently I became a Vital Proteins Ambassador. I enjoy sharing benefits of how it’s helped me personally. Last month I shared about Recovering with Collagen Protein as well as Skin Benefits from Collagen. This month I thought I would discuss the benefits of hair and nail I’ve personally had.
A few months ago, I got a nice manicure. I’m not a stranger to manicures and like to get them for special occasions. I always go with gel because working in retail, you use your hands and honestly anything else isn’t worth my while. Why does it matter? The place actually deeply hurt my nails. When the gel manicure finally wore off over a month later, my nails were worse than they have ever been. It looked like someone put them through the shredder. I’ve several gel manicures but nothing that really ever did that.
I wanted to get another manicure in April, but my nails weren’t ready for it.
So How Does Collagen Help Your Nails?
A lack of collagen in your body can often time be blamed for peeling, dry, or splitting nails. Collagen proteins are the building block of your not only your nails but also your hair.
Since most people don’t go out of their way to eat animal bones to get more collagen, a supplement can be the next best thing. One of my personal favorite products from Vital Proteins is the Bone Broth. I usually just heat up water and add a scoop or two. I know a few people mentioned they cook with it too which sounds awesome!
The Other “Beauty” Component I’ve Seen a Lot of Success with is Hair!
First, I’m not suffering from hair loss, but I have been trying to grow my hair longer. Why I decided that was a good idea during this summer is beyond me. I didn’t start taking Collagen solely for hair, but along with nails, it’s been a nice bonus.
Did you know that Collagen is the building block of the hair? Each strand of hair is surrounded by collagen. I had no idea collagen is a key to hair quality!
Thinking out loud, I honestly didn’t know a heck of a lot about hair until I started doing some research about growing mine out. Even when my hair was subject to 2 hours of chlorine a day, I’ve always been lucky to have thick hair (and not even green).
This has definitely helped me and my hair has gotten longer than it’s been in a very long time. Even my eyebrows grow quickly, and my waxer has wondered if I live there.
While neither hair or nails were my primary reason for taking collagen, I’ve seen benefits in taking them. Currently, my personal favorite products are Beauty Collagen, Vital proteins Whey Protein, and Bone Broth.
I’ll have a recipe for you about using the Vital Protein Whey Protein soon.
