Want Louise Thompson's shiny tresses or Chloe Meadows' luscious locks? Here are the 6 ingredients you need to achieve celeb-worthy hair... and they're all in one chewy vitamin
Sponsored by Hairburst
A year ago, celebrities from Rosie Hungtington-Whiteley to Mollie King and Caroline Flack were chopping off their long locks in favour of the trendy, shoulder length long bob, or 'lob'.
But long, luscious locks are back and bigger than ever, and it seems every starlet wants their thick, long manes back - and quickly. Scroll through your Instagram feed and dozens of beauty and style influencers are showing off their full and tumbling locks.
So how do Made In Chelsea's Louise Thompson and TOWIE's Chloe Meadows achieve their shining, glamorous manes, while you're struggling to grow your lucklustre hair by even an inch?
What's her secret? Made In Chelsea's Louise Thompson is the envy of many fans for her shiny, full hair
Long and luscious: TOWIE starlet Chloe Meadows is famed for her Rapunzel-like, sun-kissed tresses, which she says she helps to keep healthy with vitamins
The secret to many stars' enviable hair is supplements. Louise, Chloe, and many more have been sharing their beauty secret on social media, revealing that they've been taking Hairburst vitamins, which contain essential ingredients you need for healthy, faster hair growth.
Ex On The Beach star Lillie Lexie Gregg, Louise's Made In Chelsea co-star Tiff Watson, and Katie Wright, Georgia Kousoulou and Lydia Bright from TOWIE have also promoted the vitamins on Instagram recently.
But don't just take their word for it. Here, Femail break down the vital ingredients that help your body to promote longer and stronger hair and prevent breakage and hair loss.
GOOD TO KNOW...
A balanced diet full of leafy green vegetables, fruit, nuts, healthy fats and whole grains will ensure you are naturally consuming the outlined essential vitamins and minerals, however the realities of a busy, urban life - and particularly around the holiday season when we are indulging more than usual - means that our diet can be lacking in these.
Luckily, Hairburst Chewable Hair Vitamins (£19.99 for a one-month supply, which is less than 70p a day) contain all of the key ingredients you need to maintain healthy, faster hair growth. And bonus: the chewable strawberry and blackcurrent gummies taste delicious and are perfect for people who have trouble swallowing tablets.

One of the best known vitamins for promoting hair growth, Biotin (a B-complex also known as vitamin H) helps to metabolise fats and proteins, and is essential for strengthening hair and nails. If you are deficient in it, you can experience dry, brittle nails and thinning and lacklustre hair prone to breakage. Biotin produces keratin, and assists elasticity in the cortex layer of the hair shaft, so your hair is less prone to damage from heat styling, sun damage and other dangers. Chow down on eggs, seafood, brown rice, yeast, oats and lentils.
A deficiency in the mineral selenium can inhibit your body's ability to grow new hair. It is known to help combat the fungal infection malassezia, which is associated with dandruff or scalp psoriasis, and is therefore a common ingredient in anti-dandruff shampoos. Fish, whole grains and garlic are a source of selenium in your diet.

All the essentials: TOWIE star Lydia Bright swallows her supplements, which contain vital ingredients for hair health including Biotin, Selenium, Iron and Vitamin C
Zinc is a vital mineral essential to maintaining a healthy immune system. It promotes healthy hair follicles and therefore can lead to weakened follicles resulting in hair loss if you are deficient. Zinc is key in cell reproduction, maintaining hormone levels and absorbing vitamins. Some studies have shown that zinc can prevent or slow graying hair. Oysters, sweet potato, nuts, chickpeas and spinach are all rich in zinc.

In addition to energy and red blood cell production, vitamin B6 keeps hair healthy. It also helps to keep skin healthy too, as it increases collagen production. This is necessary for hair growth. Tuna, bananas, salmon and spinach are excellent sources of B6.
Vitamin B12 promotes healthy hair growth by helping in the formation of red blood cells. The visible part of your hair is made up of keratin which is a protein. At the base of each hair follicle, tiny blood vessels connect to the root of each hair strand. Red blood cells carry oxygen to the living portion of the hair strands. Without adequate oxygen, your hair typically won’t be able to sustain healthy growth so it’s important to have adequate levels of Vitamin B12
PANTOTHENTIC ACID / VITAMIN B5
Pantothenic acid is believed to help strengthen hair follicles and their cells, allowing them to function properly. One study even found that taking the nutrient stops hair from thinning. The nutrient, also known as Vitamin B5 can be found in cauliflower,avocado, legumes, lentils, egg yolks, broccoli, tomatoes among other things.
Big hair, don't care: It's no secret the TOWIE girls love voluminous, glamorous hair - so it's no surprise newcomer Katie Wright has jumped on board promoting the supplements
