New Year, New Growth

Thursday, January 01, 2015

Good day to you all and happy, happy new year!

One of my new year's resolutions is to take better care of my hair. I really had to break down what that meant for me in order for me to be able to achieve this goal. I used to relax my hair every six weeks to the T. As a result, my hair got really thin. Once I decreased that to every three or four month, I noticed the thickness returning to my hair. But with thickness comes a longer detangling process and more frustration. But that's besides the point... now I want growth!

I don't usually wear my hair out so it confuses me as to why my hair actually grows so little. I barely manipulate it and I rarely apply heat to it. Yet, when I am detangling and washing my hair, I feel like I lose a lot in the process. Obviously, there will be some "hair loss" meaning because I keep it braided up and strands of hair naturally fall out daily, it appears as if I am losing hair. But I feel like since I cut my hair into a bob, it's still a bob! To help speed up the process I have started taking Biotin pills.

I opted for the ULTRA STRENGTH Biotin (lol) with 10,000 mcg. In the "regular" strength biotin, I believe it's 5,000 mcg. 

I have been taking these for a few weeks only, and I haven't dealt with my hair in about a week. I don't expect to see any growth for a few months though. I take one pill daily, per instructions and I am thinking about increasing it to two. I know the body has a way of getting rid of things when it's too much, so when I do increase the dose I will monitor that and update you all. 

For me, topical hair growth aids just end up making my nails grow super fast and my hair grow at a pretty normal pace-- funny how that works!There are so many concoctions out there claiming to make your hair grow. Taking vitamins is something I have never been good at, but I find placing them in the correct spot is the key to taking them everyday! For me, they must be in the right place, at the right time!

I am open to all suggestions!
