We sit down with founder Lucy Palmer to talk about her experience with hair loss and building innovative hair care brand Hair Gain.
Tell us about your brand and how you came about?
"Hair Gain started life because I myself suffered from severe postpartum hair loss, I tried all the supplements on the market and none of them worked for me. Due to my extensive nutrition knowledge I was determined to create the world's best nutritional supplement that would feed follicles at source."
What’s your biggest challenge as a brand?
"I think the biggest challenge is educating consumers about why Hair Gain is superior in terms of its efficacy and formulation. Hair Gain has human clinical data and is loaded with Beauty & EFSA claims. There are lots of brands out there using bogus claims and this can be a little frustrating."
Tell us your favourite quote, mantra or best piece of advice
"- Why me, why not?
- Always trust your gut. It knows what your head hasn’t yet figured out.
- Putting yourself first doesn’t mean you don’t care about others. It means your smart enough to know that you can’t help others if you don’t help yourself first."
Tell us your proudest moment as a business
"I think the proudest moment for me and the Hair Gain team is seeing before and after pictures from our clients, restoring peoples hair has such an incredible effect on people's confidence and happiness. We also love to see the brand getting global recognition from the press, celebrities, Trichologists and distributors."
What's your best beauty or life hack?
"I’m a bit late to the party with this one (I only started running when I was 30 years old) but running is brilliant for de-fogging my mind and giving me energy."
What is your favourite discovery from A LITTLE FIND?
"I really like the Dock & Bay's hair wrap as my hair dries so much quicker!"
What are your three favourite shops?
"John Lewis, M&S Food & Zara."
What's the most stressful part of your day?
"Trying to get myself and my daughter ready for the day ahead/school."
Where's your favourite place to hideaway?
"I love going to the seaside with my family, going for walks along the beach and ending up in a cosy pub."
