The best supplements to help your hair grow thicker and longer

We've done all the hard work for you and separated the studs from the duds

Want longer hair? There’s a pill for that. Looking to strengthen your hair? There’s a pill for that too. In fact, the rise in beauty supplements has seen such a spike it’s said to reach £5 billion by 2020, more than double what was spent in 2013.

Enriched with vitamins and minerals designed to target our hair, skin and nails, these magic pills essentially promise us the Victoria Secret hair of our dreams (especially if you use them in conjunction with one of these best shampoos for hair loss).

But, with all things that rise in popularity comes a saturated market. And with a saturated market comes a few failures, which is why we’ve sifted through them all to separate the studs from the duds.

If you’re going to pop a pill, pop one of these and give your hair some serious guts…
