Supplements to support hair growth (and joints!)
The Nourkrin packaging and website states that it is a 'marine based extract of proteins and polysaccharides' with silica and acerola cherry. The Boots website identifies the key ingredient as marine cartilage, which contains glucosamine. It's quite expensive at £40 for 60 tablets.
I take a supplement to support my joints because of the type of exercise I do, which also contains glucosamine, and mine costs £10 for 30 capsules. I buy a branded formulation; generic glucosamine supplements are available at a lower price than this.
Boots (and other pharmacies and health food shops) also sell silica tablets. I bought this one to try (it's £7 for 30 tablets, and I take one a day).
Talking about hair, I hennaed/indigoed my hair with Lush Caca Brun today (despite the threat of a Twitter lynching for thinking about using it!) Mr and Miss London are a little disappointed it hasn't turned green. It has definitely had an effect on my hair, and I will be posting a full review of the process soon.
