2 months, 3 weeks ago
I have always had long, thick, and beautiful hair. It has been one of the gifts I was blessed with, and I have always felt grateful that I was lucky enough to have few issues with my hair. This doesn't mean that I have done nothing to care for it or maintain my hair, and it certainly doesn't mean I have avoided spending thousands of dollars on hair care products. However, I have always loved my hair, but I still have concerns and worries.
I have started to notice my hair thinning out over the past few months. It seems to be losing strength, and I am cleaning more from the drain in the tub than I have ever had to clean in the past. I want to begin making changes now in order to avoid problems as I grow older. I believe that small changes now will make a big difference long term.
I opened Google and began my search for information. There was obviously no lack of information related to hair, and any problem that one could possibly encounter. I found this page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hair_growth on Wikipedia. It discusses the fact that hair is nothing more than skin cells that layer on top of one another, and are then coated in keratin that is a protein. This had me thinking about skin care, and protein production and intake in my diet.
With the idea of improving my overall intake of vitamins, minerals, and proteins, I set out on a mission to discover solutions and methods for improving the strength and health of my hair. I figured that hair strength and growth must be similar to other areas of my health such as diet, emotional well being, and exercise. I know that my diet isn't the most nutritious, but like most people in the modern world meals are a passing thought during the chaos of my normal day. Eating the most well balanced meals would be just short of a miracle as I juggle the demands of daily life. I found a supplement on this page http://www.amazon.com/Vibrance-Vitamins-Vegetarian-Capsules-Formula/dp/B00G6U4ZI6/ on Amazon. Has any of you used this product before? Any feedback about it?
The overall plan I have to help improve the strength and thickness of my hair is a long term plan. I intend to make changes to my diet so that it is more well balanced, add supplements to my diet, exercise more often, and add hair care products to my routine to help improve the quality of my hair so that I can keep it as beautiful as possible for as long as possible.
What advice can you offer that will help me with my goals? Do you have any special recipes or diet strategies that will allow me to balance things more easily? Do you have any shampoos, conditioners, sprays, or waxes to recommend that you know have worked to help improve the quality of your hair? I am looking for all of the best tips, advice, and solutions for improving the quality of our hair long term.
