Every couple of years a product hits the market that promises great results and financial growth. You remember Noni juice, Body Magic, Mary Kay and Amway. I might be aging myself but these were companies that kept personal selling alive. On my hair journey, I had researched all the supplements for hair growth. I decided to give It Works a shot after hearing a few reviews about the limited to no side effects from taking the vitamin.
On New Year’s Day, I purchased a one month supply of the Hair Skin Nail vitamins. The shipment seemed to take longer than expected but I took into account that I placed my order on a holiday weekend. After my order was released from a hostage situation in the leasing office, I started me supplements on the 15th of January. I was pleasantly surprised by the packaging. (While I’m writing this, I’m sure there is another shipment being held in the leasing office. #MajorSideEye)
The vitamins are a pretty decent size. I don’t have a problem with ingesting pills. The problem I do have is taking them daily. The instruction require you to take 2 a day with plenty of water. I’ve been managing to stay the course. All for the opportunity to create a gorgeous halo braid with my natural hair. Another bonus, they DO NOT smell like vitamins. Y’all know what I’m talking about – that almost medicinal yet herbal smell. They feature a minty aroma which is somewhat inviting. This has helped me immensely.
This is a close up of the ingredients contains in the supplements. Recognize any familiar components from your healthy hair journey studies. Trust me they’re all here. Over these past few weeks, I have not experienced any breakouts on my skin. In addition, some hyper-pigmentation I was experiencing on my face is healing faster than expected.
Supplements were the last thing on the list of things to promote greater length retention and growth. I’ve already been on this journey for almost 3 years. Even before the setback, I wasn’t where I should have been in terms of length. However, I’d rather have healthier hair than longer hair. Please don’t hold your breath waiting for me to post a picture of my current hair length. I didn’t take one. There are several reasons why I didn’t.
- I haven’t straightened my hair since November 2015.
- I didn’t want to become consumed with measuring the results.
- I wanted to be surprised by the results at the end of my 90 days.
- I have a difficult time taking proper images of my hair.
- Plus, I know how damaging those images can be for the another person on the journey.
In reference to my last reason, I feel that sometime progress images can be more harmful than good. I understand they are meant to be motivating. Some people like to see the results of remaining on this journey. There have been times when I have wanted to call it quits because my hair is growing slower than others. So once I finish the 90 day supply, I will show you my results. Let me know if you’re interested and smile.
