I’ve had a love-hate relationship with my hair for the last four years. I went through a really bad breakup, and let my best friend bleach my hair blonde and chop off a foot. BIG mistake. My hair was so brassy and extremely damaged – and I was a broke college student who couldn’t afford to get it professionally fixed. I ended up dying over it with brown hair dye, but I was never able to really fix the damage.
Fast forward four years, and I picked up some pretty bad hair habits. I was so embarrassed of my damaged hair, so I kept it in a bun perpetually. I would leave it up, take it out in the shower to wash my hair, and immediately put it up afterwards. I think I have gone a couple weeks straight without brushing my hair before. I just didn’t want to spend energy working on something that I hated so much. Thankfully I take better care of my hair now, but the ends still suffer from my mistreatment. My hair has gone from sleek and shiny to dry and frizzy.
Here’s a “before” picture of my hair from a couple months ago:
A company called Neocell reached out to me and asked if I would like to review one of their products on my blog. I looked through their selection, and decided to try out their Hair, Skin, and Nails Beauty Chews. My hair and nails both needed improvement, so I was excited to see if these would work!
They sent me a 30 Count bag of Beauty Chews, which are made with Vitamin C and Collagen to improve hair quality, nail strength, and skin radiance. I had read a post about collagen supplements by one of my blogger friends, and I was hoping to have amazing results like she did.
A 30 pack of Neocell costs $12.50 at CVS, which is about 41 cents per chew. Neocell’s website is currently undergoing renovation, but you will be able to purchase this from them soon.
The chews are berry flavored, and remind me of Starbursts. I was quite taken aback by how good these taste! Make sure you just stick to one a day though, even if you have a sweet tooth. 😉 One soft chew contains 20 calories, 60 mg of Vitamin C, 6,000 mcg of Biotin, 100 mg of BioActive Neocell Collagen, and 20 mg of Hyaluronic Acid.
After 30 days of taking these Beauty Chews, I was noticing differences in my hair and nails. My nails were growing much faster, but unfortunately were not strengthened. Once my nails reach 1/4 inch in length, they just snap right off. Brittle nails run in my family, and the Beauty Chews were not able to remedy that. However, I noticed an amazing change in my hair. Not only did it grow very fast, but it also looks so much more hydrated, and is sleek again! There is barely even a hint of frizz, and it looks so different from the “before” picture. Both pictures were taken with my hair unbrushed and in its natural state.
I am so pleased with the results in my hair! I haven’t had great results in my skin or nails, which is an issue – after all, they are called Hair, Skin, and Nails Beauty Chews. However, the change in my hair is enough to make these worth it for me. I think great hair alone is worth the $12 price tag. Keep in mind, your experience may be different than mine; you may take this supplement and have great results with your nails. I just want you to know how my trial went. 🙂
The Neocell Hair, Skin, and Nails Beauty Chews are affordable, tasty, and did wonders for my hair. If you suffer from dry and brittle hair, I definitely recommend trying out a 30 day supply. I hope you found this review useful, and please leave any questions for me in the comments below!
