Every individual person and their hair have different life spans and so there is a possibility that your is 5 years and thatís as much as your hair will grow.

The benefits of hair supplements?
Itís a fact that 1 in 3 women have hair loss and thinning hair concerns - Diffuse hair loss caused by severe stress, medication or poor diet being one of the most common.
Years ago we would have been advised to eat a cube of jelly to improve our hair and nails, not actually a myth as Jelly made with gelatin, a tasteless protein is capable of providing some of the essential amino acids that human hair is made up of, as well as the ability to renew cells.
As hair is 91% protein and constructed of 16 amino acids combined with the fact that hair and nails are the last body parts to receive vital nutrients most of us that want to improve the quality and health of our hair need additional support.
They work by being absorbed into your digestive system providing the essential amino acids the hair requires.
You would need to take a supplement for at least 3 months to really notice and feel a difference, generally 2 per day and they work directly during the íAnagení(growing phase of the hairs natural cycle).
I strongly recommend Hair Jelly protein capsules with their Sulphur rich amino acids, they really do the job and are suitable for vegetarians.
