Top Five Hair, Skin, and Nail Supplements

When dealing with hair loss, switching shampoos, or just looking for hair growth, many of our readers turn to supplements to keep their tresses looking their best. Many hair supplements also include ingredients designed to promote healthy skin and strong nail growth.

This is where you will find only the brands which passed our lab’s quality analysis. Our quality analysis, which is our basic supplement screening process, simply filters product that do not meet the following criteria:

  • The supplement must contain at least 95% of the ingredient quantity claimed by its label (5% deterioration is the standard allowance for storage and delivery)
  • The supplement must contain NO IMPURITIES OR ADDITIVES

After the screening process, each product is graded according to additional criteria:

  • Thorough Coverage – an effective hair, skin and nail supplement needs to have essential vitamins, minerals, and herbal and natural supplements for optimal growth and vibrance. We look specifically for biotin and collagen.
  • Effectiveness – we look for brands that include clinically proven, well-studied ingredients.
  • Potency – the amount of active ingredients within the supplement.
  • Price – self-explanatory, however it is important to remember that in most cases you get what you pay for.
