Since starting my healthy hair journey a few years ago, I have not used any type of hair growth supplements. I definitely dabbled in the JBCO (Jamaican Black Castor Oil) hype, but other than that I haven’t been focusing too much on the growth of my hair, as in it wasn’t the main goal for me.
Fast forward to last year’s November when I started using Lydia’s Liquid Hair Growth Supplement ‘Love Locks’. I was interested to see what changes It would make to the health of my hair and I wanted to see if it would encourage any growth. I must admit I wasn’t consistent with this so I ended up finishing the bottle over the period of two months, so my results are probably going to be affected by this.

‘Love Locks‘ First Impressions
Before trying ‘Love Locks’ I felt that my hair wasn’t in the best condition, it wasn’t growing evenly, it was thinning, felt brittle and just wasn’t really responding to products the way I wanted it to.
After trying ‘Love Locks’ the first few days I noticed quite a bit of shedding, more than I was used to, which I wasn’t too concerned about, as it was during the colder months so I put it down to that. Now I think the supplement may have encouraged my hair cycle to shed any hair that needed to go.
The first few things I did notice was that my hair was growing evenly, I had previously cut my hair as one side was growing longer than the other side.
When I apply hair products and after washing and conditioning my hair my curl pattern has become more defined. I find that my hair just holds it’s coils better since taking this supplement.
The strands of my hair has also thickened. I have always felt like my hair has been pretty fine, especially in my teenage years when I would strengthen the hell out of my hair. However a few days into drinking ‘Love Locks‘ I could see and feel my hair strands had thickened.
As I mentioned before I didn’t finish this supplement within a month, this was due to the taste. I am not someone who drinks squash or diluted drinks. It doesn’t taste bad at all, you can, however, taste the added vitamins, but it isn’t an off-putting taste. If you’re a squash kind of person then you will not have any problems with the taste.

Natural Hair Update✨ . #Gifted – I have been using @lydiashairsupplement for about 4 weeks, I haven’t been the most consistent with it but I can already see some differences in my hair. I noticed my hair is now growing evenly. I previously noticed the right side was growing better than the left side 🤷🏾♀️So I cut my hair so it was all a similar length. I then started my hair supplement journey and my hair has been growing back evenly and thicker 🙌🏾 There has been some noticeable shedding but it’s nothing I have been worried about as hair tends to shed more in the colder months. So far so good and I will let you know how I get on once I have finished my first bottle 💆🏾♀️Have you tried any hair supplements? . . . #saabirahlawrence #blackbritishbloggers #blackgirlswhoblog #discoverunder3k #buyblackowned #blackwomenwhoblog #blackcreatorsmatter #glossylids #shortnaturalhairstyles #naturalhairupdate #baumeflow #mdmflow #boohoocurve #boohooplus #naturalhairsupplements #lydiashairsupplement
Does It Work?
Yes, it works! Although I wasn’t very consistent with this I have been taking multivitamins and vitamin D which I think has helped me retain length and retain the thickness of my hair. If you remember to drink this with a meal every day, then you will see results. I would agree and say that It being a liquid makes it fast-absorbing and encourages your hair to respond to the vitamins in a way that can give you faster results. It is important to note that everyone’s hair is different, so you may find it doesn’t work as quickly as it did for me. Unfortunately, I didn’t take many images during this process to be able to show you a length check.
I am happy with the results and I am happy with the way my hair has responded to this supplement. I would recommend it for someone who enjoys the taste of squash and is looking to improve the health of their hair. I like that there was a choice of three measurements on the cap, this gives you the choice to drink it throughout the day in installments instead of all at once.
