3/30/17 Hair

It’s been another month since I posted about my hair journey. Sometimes I wonder if this journey is worth documenting every month because I know there will be some months I don’t know what to talk about.

At the beginning of this month I got my hair trimmed. Nothing drastic I just needed to trim up the ends. Walked in and ended up finding out that the last person to cut my hair, cut it unevenly. So I had one side that was about a 1/2 inch shorter than the other. Let me tell you… I was FURIOUS about this. But my new hair stylist fixed this problem and I have to say I loved it. He listened to what I wanted and didn’t do anything drastic to the length. Even within the last month I have noticed that my hair has grown!

I’ve also changed my hair care routine a little. I’ve started using a shampoo and conditioner by Pureology that is good for strengthening your hair and allowing it to grow. I’ve also gotten into washing my hair twice a week (I know that sounds gross to some but it works for me and you’re not supposed to wash your hair every day). I’ve also been doing a hair masque once a week. To keep my ends happy and healthy.

stay tuned for more as I continue on this hair journey!

So guys… its been a month since I started this Hair post idea! I’m not posting a photo on here this time because my hair hasn’t changed much yet. Today I wanted to talk about vitamins to take that will help your hair. For some, one good supplement is called “It Works: hair, skin, & nails”. I used to take this supplement to try and help my hair grow but unfortunately I didn’t see much improvement after three months. I don’t know if that is due to the fact that I had bleached the ends of my hair right before trying it or the fact that I was constantly trimming it because of the bleach. If you try it and it works for you, that’s awesome! Give it a try! But be warned- the product is pretty pricey but can be found on amazon. I’ve recently come the learn that I don’t like swallowing whole vitamins every day. I find reasons not to take it, I wait as long as I can before swallowing it, or I honestly do forget to take it. But I have started taking Vitafusion gummy vitamins. These are easy to take because they are chewable and they taste decent. I take a women’s multivitamin for my health and I also take a biotin supplement as well (both gummies by vitafusion). I take two of each once a day and I’ve only been taking them for a month. But I’m already seeing a change in the look of my hair and especially the length of my nails. If you are trying to grow out your hair like me, first understand that it WILL take time and start by taking vitamins that are specific to the production of hair growth.

Before this past holiday I was trying to figure out what topics I would write about in the new year and I had absolutely NO CLUE! I was going through a serious writers block and it began to bother me. But then around the new year I remembered that I had made the decision to love my hair more (that may sound weird but let me explain). I have spent years coloring and cutting my hair that I had forgotten to love my natural hair. And I had been wanting to grow it out for a long time (I just always got impatient and would cut it again). So this year I decided to take on a challenge:

NO MORE COLORING MY HAIR! and ONLY TRIMMING IT TO GET RID OF SPLIT ENDS!

I’ve also decided to do a hair segment with this. On the same date every month I will post an update of my hair’s journey! And I won’t stop until December! I’ll post a picture of the change along with my thoughts on the journey as well as tips & tricks I’ve been trying or the times I get a trim. Once I reach December I’ll post something on the entire year and what the journey was like! Do you think I can do it? Will you go on this journey with me? Here we go!
