Healthy Hair Care Journey: Manetabolism

Ciao Bellas,
If you follow me on Instagram (which you totally should! I'm @FlyFierceFab ), you saw my post today about the Manetabolism vitamins. For the past month or so I was taking Hair, Skin, Nails vitamins by Natures Bounty (there are 2,500 mcgs of Biotin in a serving, and I would take 2 servings daily sometimes for 5,000 mcgs of Biotin. According to the product label, this is ok) along with a Super B-Complex Vitamin by Nature Made. They were ok, I think I saw a slight increase in growth...but nothing to necessarily write home about. I decided to try Manetabolism by The Mane Choice after reading a lot about the vitamins, and how they worked for a lot of people (along with checking out their results on IG). I actually almost purchased these instead of the vitamins I had been previously taking, but I bought the other ones because they were in a local store and on sale haha. I'm not looking for a magic pill to turn me into Rapunzel, but my hair and edges def need lots of TLC and I think that this would help me as I work on reviving my hair and edges. I was really impressed with the results that a lot of people were reporting, so I'm hoping that I'll have great results as well.

I've been doing a lot of research, and I've come up with what I think is a solid plan to get my hair back on track:

1) I will be transitioning to texlaxed. I'm pretty sure I was texlaxed before (or at least I know that I was def not relaxed bone straight like I am now), until one day at the salon *sigh* . I am currently 11 weeks post relaxer, and I'm looking to get my texlaxed within the next two weeks. I would like for my hair to have a fuller appearance, so I think this would be a step in the right direction.

2) No more sew-ins. I will however get my hair braided down in a circular pattern, and leave it that way for 2-3 months at a time (I will still wash my hair and what not on a regular basis). I got this idea from watching PhillyJamzPoet's videos on YouTube, as she had a lot of success using this method for her hair. My hair has always done best when I've left it alone, so I think that this will work for me too.

3) I will continue to rock my protective style of choice: Full Wigs. This helps me keep my hands out of my hair, and keeps me from messing with my edges.

4) I will be purchasing a hair steamer. I've heard lots of great things about them over the years, but never seriously considered purchasing one. I think it's time for me to stop playing and buy one haha.

5) I will be patient. A watched pot never boils, and I have to remember that it's health before length.

Stylishly Yours,
