My hair is officially the longest it’s ever been *happy dance*. Funny enough, it’s also the lightest it’s ever been – aka it’s been doused in bleach a few too many times. One of my most asked questions is “is your hair real?” (yes) and “are you wearing extensions?” (no). Today I’m spilling my secrets on how I’ve managed to grow my hair and keep it healthy along the way. I’ll be sharing 5 hacks – and yes, I apply them all to my hair! Having long, healthy hair isn’t the easiest – but it’s absolutely worth the time and energy I put into it. So, here are my top 5 hair hacks to growing long, healthy hair. Ps. make sure to keep reading until the end of the post – #5 is a hair hack you may be unfamiliar with!
Hack #1: Don’t wash your hair
Hack #3: The weird looking spiral coil hairbands actually work
When I first caught sight of “invisibobbles” it was a major eye roll for me. I was convinced it was a quick money grab – until I finally caved and bought a set. The darn things actually work, y’all! My hair is so long tangles are inevitable with hair bands – until the invisibobble. It never tangles my hair and doesn’t leave a dent on my hair! I’ll be honest and say the holding power isn’t as great as an elastic (if you have long, thick hair it may not work for you), but I make sure to loop it as many times as possible to secure my ponytail. Bonus hack: if the coils loosen over time, use your blow dryer to apply heat for 5-10 seconds and it will bounce back!
Hack #5: A little help from my friends
I finally did it y’all! I’ve been a complete stranger to the world of pills/vitamins helping to achieve shiner and healthier hair. How did it happen? Mineral BioSciences reached out and asked if I wanted to try out their dietary supplement called Ionicell for Women. I did a little digging and learned these supplements are clinically proven to help generate collagen and re-hydrate cells. They not only claim to help the appearance of healthy hair, they also help strengthen nails and stimulate college for healthier looking skin. I took 1 capsule of IoniCell daily (after a meal) for 5 weeks to see if I noticed any difference in my hair. The results? My hair does appear shiner! I made sure to discontinue use of any products that make my hair shine for an accurate display of results. Let me know what you think of my hair – I took these photos after 5 weeks of taking IoniCell for Women!
Also, side note – my nails actually seem a bit stronger too. I get monthly manicures (I get dip nails) and noticed my nails were a bit thicker when the dip powder was removed! If you’d like to try out these supplements good news – you don’t need a prescription – you can grab it online and in selected health stores! They’re also gluten free, non-GMO and soy free. Let me know if you try them out – I’d love to know your results! You can shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
