The question was what type of results would I see?

I was looking for additional growth, stronger hair, and overall healthier looking hair.

I took the Mielle Gummy Healthy Hair Adult Vitamins first. They claim to

The vitamins are offered in pill and gummy form. I’d read that the pills are a bit large and I’m not a fan of taking pills so I opted for the gummies because they would be easier to take.

You can get these Mielle vitamins from several different places. I got mine from Target. But they can also be found on Mielle’s website. They seem to be about $20 before tax in most places.

There are 60 pills in the bottle and the instructions say to take 2 a day so it lasts for about a month. I started off with one a day to ease myself into them but within a couple of weeks, I was taking two a day.

I was pretty deep into my relaxer stretch at this point and within a few weeks, I started to a difference in my new growth. It was coming in thicker than it had been so there seemed to be more of it but it was easy to manage. I was also seeing less breakage.

About halfway through taking the vitamins, I had a relaxer touch up. My growth was noticeably more than it had been the previous touch up even though I just stretched one week more than the previous time. My stylist questioned how long it had been.

Another thing to note is that I didn’t see any negative changes in my skin.

About two weeks later I had finished the Mielle vitamins and switched over to The Mane Choice Manetabolism Plus Vitamins.

The Mane Choice vitamins claim

The Mane Choice Manetabolism Plus Vitamins are a little bit more expensive than Mielle’s at $26 a bottle before tax. They can be found at Target, on the Mane Choice site.

Just like the Mielle vitamins, the Manetabolism instructions say to take 2 a day so the bottle lasts about a month. The Manetabolism vitamins though come in pill form, you can’t gummies. You can however if you buy from The Mane Choice site get them in powder form so you can add the powder to water and drink it.

I took the pills for four weeks. Below on the left is a pic of my hair the day I started taking the pills and on the right is the day I stopped.

Honestly, I barely noticed a difference in my hair. I wasn’t seeing less breakage, in fact, I was seeing a little bit more than before. My new growth was coming in like it normally does. I didn’t notice my new growth being thicker or more than normal.

One thing I didn’t see, which I was glad not to, is changes in my skin. I didn’t have any breakouts or see changes in my skin.

So did either vitamin help my hair grow faster?

I have to admit, I didn’t do any official length checks. While I don’t feel that either really made a huge difference in my hair growth if I had to lean one way I would say Mielle made the most difference in my hair length and health. When taking the Mielle vitamins I noticed more new growth sooner.

I really noticed no positive difference in my hair when taking The Mane Choice. I kinda thought I would for a few reasons

Going forward I’ll be taking the Mielle gummies. That probably makes sense considering I bought 4 bottles during their $5 Black Friday sale.

I think I saw better results, they are easier to take and less expensive. I’m not sure how long I’ll continue to take them but I think it will probably be till I’m happy with how my hair looks when I wear it down.
