Which supplement would be better natures bounty hair skin and nails or twinlab hair factors to cure dry damaged brittle chemically relaxed hair?

Tincture of time: You can try either of the products you mentioned, but in general, once hair shafts are damaged they will stay damaged until you grow your hair out.

Is it ok to take a few different collagen supplements along with a tradition hair, skin and nails. Or is it too much?

Is it ok to take a few different collagen supplements along with a tradition hair, skin and nails. Or is it too much?

It may be ok: I'm not sure that oral collagen supplements will do anything and topical collagen is not absorbed. No one is injecting collagen any more, as it has fallen out of favor.

But not clear any better than the right amount of other B vitamins best obtained in healthy diet ...Read more
