Sugar Bear Hair Review – Are There Side Effects?


For anyone interested in promoting their hair growth, you can’t have missed Sugar Bear Hair and their social media supporters.

Notably talked about by the Kardashians and other influencers, these vitamin gummy bears are all the rage right now.

So, today I will be reviewing the products and look into what the manufacturers claim, what the Sugar Bear Hair Reviews say, and what my experience has been with these gummies.

What Is Sugar Bear Hair?


Sugar Bear Hair is a multi-vitamin supplement sold online, which you can get your hands on easily on or on their own website.

One notable difference from other supplements is that they come in the form of gummy bears, a lovely sweet candy.

They are 100% vegetarian supplements manufactured by Sugar Bear Hair, a company that’s made a splash with their cute marketing, women-centred advertising, and effective social media campaigns. 

Their flagship product is the supplement for hair growth, with specific vitamins designed to help you get lovely long and luscious locks. 

A 1-month supply of Sugar Bear Hair vitamins costs $29.99 and you can get deals on 3-month of 6-month packages, reducing your per-bottle price significantly (3-month packs cost $79.99 instead of $89.97, for example). These prices are accurate as of February 2020.

Sugar Bear Hair Ingredients


The Sugar Bear Hair gummies are packed full of vegetarian vitamins, some of which are known to support healthy skin and hair.

Vitamin A

Skin and scalp health supporting vitamin A supports blood oxygen circulation. This will in turn feed your scalp with nutrients required for healthier and stronger hair, improving the look of your hair.

Vitamin C

Among its many benefits, vitamin C has been shown to support faster hair growth by helping the body produce collagen, helping hair grow stronger. It also fights free radicals which can cause hair loss over time.

Vitamin E

This is an essential vitamin for women’s health, helping blood circulation, and working closely with vitamin C to improve hair strength and elasticity. 

Vitamin B-6, Folic Acid (Vitamin B-9), Vitamin B-12

The B vitamins are an excellent complex for vitality, supporting cell development and blood flow. (1)


This is one of the crucial ingredients to support hair growth, as it produces fatty acids that support hair health, preventing dry and itchy scalp, eczema, and eventually hair loss. (2)

Pantothenic Acid (Vitamin B-5)

You must have heard about this one in some famous shampoo adverts already! Vitamin B-5 supports the hair’s natural keratin and replaces lost or damaged hair, supporting a steady rate of hair growth. (3)

Coconut Oil

The popularity of coconut oil is well known worldwide. It supports healthy skin and scalp, and it can moisturize your hair, thereby preventing it from breaking and falling as much. There are no studies supporting it's claims for stopping hair loss and increasing hair growth. (4)

Sugar Bear Hair Reviews

Overall, Sugar Bear Hair gummies are an excellent cocktail of ingredients that should work to promote your hair growth and general health.


Many Sugar Bear Hair Reviews attest to this, having used the gummies for around 3 months. Customers report that their hair has grown and feels stronger and healthier. Additionally, those who have used the Sugar Bear Hair for a few months and then stopped noticed that their hair stopped growing as quickly or lost its luster.


However, there are a number of customers who have complained about side effects such as acne. Some have noticed an effect on hormonal levels such as thyroid levels, after visiting their doctor. The latter appears to be a side effect that can occur if you take Biotin.

Customers are therefore split between whether or not these supplements are a great addition to their diets. Specifically for hair growth and strength, however, the reviews are mostly positive.

Sugar Bear Hair Side Effects

Sugar Bear Hair is FDA approved in the United States, and therefore considered a relatively safe supplement to take. However, any supplements can have side effects, depending on your metabolism and other medical conditions, known or unknown.

The main complaint from Sugar Bear Reviews appears to be the acne experienced by many different people. Taking Sugar Bear Hair for a few weeks increased customers biotin levels, which led to breakouts quite quickly after beginning to use them.

More severe side effects, such as hormonal imbalances, are more closely linked to other metabolic issues that customers may have had before starting to use Sugar Bear Hair.

The manufacturers themselves do mention that, if you are sensitive to Biotin, you should consult with your doctor before starting to take their gummies. The critical thing here is that you may not know this previously, so it would be wise to consult with your doctor regardless and take some tests in case you have doubts before taking the gummies. There is no evidence to suggest these supplements can cause Acne issues for everyone. (5)

My Experience with Sugar Bear Hair 

I tried Sugar Bear Hair for a few days, after purchasing a one-month supply. The taste and ease of taking them daily as supplements appealed to me because they are sweet, portable, and fun. 

I was also intrigued by the delicious ingredients list and, of course, the strong marketing and instagram endorsements behind the product.

Sugar Bear Hair does taste great, but very soon taking 2 Sugar Bears per day for a couple of weeks, I had breakouts of acne and decided to stop taking it.

I’ve struggled with acne previously, and I didn’t want to continue and risk stronger effects. Therefore, I didn’t really take it long enough to be able to notice any change in my nails or hair growth results.

Final Thoughts

Sugar Bear Hair is a good brand, and they definitely work for many people, whose reviews can be found on various websites. They are FDA approved and have legitimately good ingredients, so they are not a scam.

However, they are full of sugar, which can be an issue if you want to cut that out of your diet (as I incidentally also want to do). Moreover, the negative acne effect doesn’t outweigh the benefit of hair growth, at least in my opinion. If you are lucky enough not to have these, then I’d recommend them.

Otherwise, there are other products with higher levels of Biotin, which you can try, as well as cheaper and more effective alternatives without the added sugar. I would recommend Folexin, my number 1 choice for hair growth in 2020.
