I get asked a lot about what I use to make my hair grow so fast. Does it cost a lot? Where do you get it? Do you take Biotin Vitamins?
Ok, so to answer those questions…
- No, it doesn’t cost a lot. The main products that I use are less than $6 for the smaller bottles. The Ogx Thick & Full, biotin & collagen shampoo and conditioner. You can buy these at Ulta, or any drug store. I have seen them at Target, Walmart, Walgreens and Kroger. The bottles come in many different sizes. This product is too underestimated. No one gives it the credit or recommendation that it deserves. My husband always uses my shampoo, and not long ago he mentioned “GEEZ! I’m having to cut my hair at least once a week now”, as I sat a chuckled for a minute I went on to tell him that he’s using hair growth shampoo (he didn’t read the bottle before). He stated, well this stuff really works because I’ve never had to cut my hair so much. Did it stop him from using it? No. He puts it on his beard now, haha!.. I’m just telling you the conversation we had, to show you that this product does definitely work. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND this shampoo and conditioner.
- The next product that I use is Lee Stafford, Hair Growth Treatment. I recommend you buying this at Ulta because it’s a lot cheaper there than anywhere else that I have found; it’s $11.99. I rub this into my scalp and sometimes all over my head. I do not always use it from my roots to my ends, because I never switch up my shampoo and conditioner; instead, I switch up my hair masks. I usually put the Lee Stafford treatment on my roots and then a moisturizing mask near my ends. I asked my hairstylist if it was bad that I do that, and he said no because I switch up my masks and that if it was it would have already shown damage to my hair (and I just my hair bleached a month ago and he didn’t even have to take off an inch). In other words, my hair is healthy. If you want a great moisturizing mask, I recommend you trying the Repairing Hair Mask by Juice Organics; it’s $10.99. You can also find this at Target and Walmart.
- If you don’t want to spend a lot on a hair mask, then use a regular Coconut Oil. I actually use this quite often. You can use the same oil that you cook with and put it in your hair. If I know I’m not going anywhere, I’ll rub it all through my hair and then pile my hair up on my head. I even use Coconut Oil to slick back my baby hairs, it makes them stay, it gives my hair a shine, and it’s healthy for my hair and isn’t damaging like some hairsprays are.
- You can over moisturize your hair, which can result to damaging it. However, I wash my hair every 3 to 4 days so the only moisture my hair is getting in those days are my natural oils from my head. I do believe this also plays a part in my hair growth because natural oils are great for you hair; it keeps it healthy, and healthy hair is what grows better and faster. It’s not healthy to wash your hair every day, and by doing this you’ll save money from having to constantly buy the shampoo and conditioner because you won’t be using it as much. Yes, I use dry shampoo throughout those days. I do not walk around with oily hair.
- Do I take Biotin Vitamins? No, I do not. My goal is to target the hair on my head, and not the rest of the hair on my body. When I take Biotin Vitamins, I am literally shaving everyday. I already have a difficult time with my body hair. EW! Gross I know, but it’s human and people struggle with it like I do. I do take a Daily Vitamin called Opti-Women. It does have biotin in it, but no where near as much as an actual capsule from a Biotin Vitamin bottle. One day I will get later surgery and never have to worry about body hair, haha! If you do not struggle with body hair then I do highly recommend taking Biotin Vitamins with everything else that I have listed above, but if you are like me and have naturally dark rooted body hair, I would recommend you staying away from Biotin Vitamins. The products above target the hair on your scalp and not the hair all over your body. You would think that when you rinse your hair it would affect your back hair, but that is not true. I would have experienced that already. You’re letting the products sit on your head for a while before washing it out, and that’s what helps with the hair growth. When it runs down your back, your are instantly rinsing the excess off.
- Last but certainly not least, I eat healthy and I have for years now. I do not eat poor non nutritional foods. I’m always that person reading the back of everything, making sure the things that I eat are nutritional and beneficial for my body. I do believe this play a huge role in my hair growth. Think about it, a healthy person increases the chances of having healthy hair. If someone is malnourished what do you see? Hair loss, patches of peach fuzz and even discoloration of the skin, teeth and nails. Yes, all of that. By feeding your body healthy nutritional foods your body will begin to process the nutrients and you will be able to see it not just in your hair, but your skin, your teeth, the way you feel will completely change, the dark circles around your eyes will decrease, and even your acne will decrease. It’s worth it, just really try to focus on eating healthy things and taking care of your body.
I hope this helps! As I have mentioned in the past, what works for me will not work for everyone; everyones body is different, meaning everyones body reacts differently to certain things. This is just what I do to make my hair grow, and I wanted to share it with those who are looking for ways or products to use throughout their hair growth process.
