Collagen Type 1 and 3 for Hair Growth

Image
On my lifestyle blog, beyondlifestyle.blogspot.com, I've shared my 20 days of collagen for my skin.
I do know collagen affects hair growth too hence I'll be on the lookout out for the growth I can get.

I'm taking the msm vitamins but these two together will definitely be an amazing experiment.
.
As stated on the package, the body uses collagen and after a while, it gets depleted. By supplementing, I will be boosting collagen production in the body which will certainly trickle down to the hair too.

In the nutshell, I want to see the impact of this non biotin vitamin too just as I did for the msm vitamins.

New Hair Style + New Collagen Supplement

Image
It's been quite great so far with my hair and I began a new supplement to boost growth as well as enhance my skin.


What I take is the Maxi Collagen powder with biotin  vitamins A and C. (visit shop.ghanaianemprezz.com to get one). I mix it with any beverage I have and the taste is quite pleasant so I drink up easily.
I got some hair extensions done with glue (again) and this time, I was very alert throughout the whole process so I didn't have issues with the application of the glue. The plan is to keep this for the whole of July and then in August, wash the hair and another full weave with the hairline area bonded with glue again to prevent damage from any braiding in that area..
I am sure by the end of the year, I'd have the length I want and that's what I'm working toward achieving.

Thanks for reading and catch you in the next few days

Hairfinity Is My Hair Growth Booster!

Image
It's been barely 2 weeks and the thickness and growth from Hairfinity is just what I had hoped for!

This is the second experience with Hairfinity and this time, I was able to check for the effect because I know how my hair felt prior to taking it.

I'll be stocking it in my shop (shop.ghanaianemprezz.com) and I can guarantee that I won't be disappointed at all! I don't mind taking it for the rest of the year but I have the natrol hair skin and nails vitamins as the last one to test.

I can't wait to experience the 3 months of growth with these vitamins. I'm glad my interest in my hair is gradually getting to the point I want.

For oils, I have been using a new hair booster from an awesome lady. I'll review it after 4 weeks so stay tuned! For now, I love the smell, the texture and the packaging! If you want a hair pomade like that, stay tuned for my final review and then we'll judge its impact.

How To Use Chebe Powder and Oil On Relaxed Hair

Image
In case you have relaxed hair and wondering if you can use chebe powder the answer is a yes.



All you need is to be able to plait your hair or twist up. You can also use cornrows.
To prepare the chebe mixture, add a few tablespoon full to a creamy product. I usually recommend your moisturizer or butter for a good hold.

Shampoo and condition your hair well and apply the chebe mixture. Plait up the hair and leave it for at least 7 days before reapplying the chebe mixture.

When you are ready to wash out, which could be in a month or whenever you want, just shampoo the hair and condition as usual.

You can use the mixture again for another couple of weeks.

In case you need chebe powder or chebe oil, call or whatsapp 0541458372.

Neocell Super C Collagen in Ghana

Image
If you've not tried collagen supplements, this is the best time to do so. Collagen helps in diverse ways but the key ones I've personally experienced are thicker hair and glowing skin!
Within a few days of taking the collagen tablet, a lot of colleagues remarked that I was glowing so much! That was the first time I've had so many comments about my skin in a day! In addition to that, I notice my hair got thicker and darker. The pigmentation of the dark colour was the best I'd seen since my high school days. With these benefits, I always ensure I take at leat 2 tablets a day in addition to the Hairfinity vitamins.

You'll get the neocell collagen as well as the Dr's Best Collagen Powder and Tablet at shop.ghanaianemprezz.com or call or whatsapp 0541458372 to order.

Wash Day in 2 Weeks!

Image
Laziness in hair care isn't an awesome feeling yet I find myself struggling against my own desire to wash this hair. Probably I lack motivation because of the length at this stage but I still managed to finally wash the hair.



I made a watery mixture of bentonite clay and applied to the hair, left it for 5 minutes and washed. I used VO5 conditioner afterwards to restore the moisture. I made sure to add vinegar to the clay treatment to help detox the scalp too.

I, then, followed with rice water as final rinse and sealed with a mixture of jojoba and peppermint oil. My scalp has been acting funny for the past few days probably as a result of not washing it for that long.

I plan to do more scalp massages with the brush this week to promote blood circulation to increase growth.

I'm still not motivated to do my hair as I want but I do make efforts to moisturize daily with Hawaiian silky 14 in 1 moisturizer and seal.

I'm on the 30 day beauty secret supplement too but I might visit…

Jamaican Black Castor hair growth oil

Image
The excitement over seeing the actual hair growth oil from Tropic Isle Living was simply unimaginable!

I mean after several years, they've finally made one oil purposely for our hair to boost growth. I've seen a lot of growth from my own ESO scalp oil so I always expect other hair growth oils to be that potent. When I used the Ecoco Flaxseed and castor growth oil, I was a bit disappointed with that so I'm hoping this makes up for it.

My first impression: it tingles a bit, smells slightly minty too. The smell doesn't linger so I'm certain those who hated the Jamaican Black Castor Oil will love this one. I guess the makers listened to the complaints of customers.

Have you tried this new black castor hair growth oil? Should you want one, call or whatsapp 0541458372 to order or visit shop.ghanaianemprezz.com to order.

Beautifully bamboo Hair Growth Tea (2)

Image
As part of detoxing my body, I've suspended all vitamins for a couple of weeks to allow the body revamp and rejuvenate itself.

As my morning beverage, all I do is brew it and drink it - no milk nor sugar! I enjoy my slim tea that way too.

As for my hair, I'll show a picture of it at the end of May.
Have you tried the tea before?

Relaxer Update (May 2018)

My hair has been awful these days and it's all due to the hair dye. However, this has finally been resolved so let's see how it wet with this month.

Life Essentials 30 Days Beauty

Image
I was contacted and given the life essentials 30 days beauty supplement to use and review and possibly stock up for those interested. Hence, there is a lot at stake here.

The first impression I had was it looked like it was powder form but I was wrong. It's tablet! There's are 3 tablets in a pocket which makes it 10 packets of tablets for the 30 days. Of the 3, one is golden colour.
It has to be taken 3 times daily so I took one in the morning after breakfast. I thought I would be nauseous or probably feel bitterness of the herbs but nothing of that nature.

Now, I had a buzz cut 4 days ago therefore it is a good opportunity to see how fats the hair grows back with this supplement. I was a bit skeptical about taking it until a friend remarked that it helped with her monthly flow and that's when she takes it.


If it is like that, then, it would be worth having in your stash. I should be done by 7th June to give you a full review so stay tuned. As for my semi bald hair, I cov…

How I Layer Products (Current skin care routine)

Image
It doesn't matter what you purchase for your skin, if you can't make good use of it to achieve your goals, then, it won't be worth spending on such products.

How you layer your products is crucial because some ingredients don't work well with others and might end up damaging the skin at the long run.

For example, Retinoids don't have to be used with acids. It's safer to alternate them because acids work on a low pH skin whereas Retinoids are better hydrolyzed on neutral pH. For more, click here

Back to my current skin care products and routine.
During the day.
1. Cleanser
2. Manual exfoliating with a facial scrub
3. Toner
4. Hyaluronic acid which I sometimes mix with the moisturizer or just apply and allow it to sink before next step.
5. Facial moisturizer ( the beauty formulas age defying day cream)
6. A drop of vitamin E oil

The layering at this point excludes a few vital ingredients but I'll have serums and other oils in there as time goes on.

What I Changed In My Hair Routine

Image
I didn't like the variety of textures of my hair because of the dye and the one way I could change that was a trim all around.
I succeeded in getting the overall trim with the help with my barber (He's definitely come to know how to deal with my hair). After that, I got the hair relaxed (last relaxer was almost 3 weeks ago so essentially I had more natural hair left after the trim).


I love the glow of my skin! Let me recap my routine.1. Spray hair with S curl no drip activator moisturizer 2. Seal with castor oil 3. Take my collagen supplements 3 times a day (2 tablets each)4. Take msm and B vitamins once a day at least 4 times a week. 5. Take women's vitamins for the iron level maintenance 3 times a week.6. Drink at least 2 Litres of Water daily. 7. Avoid sugar, walk more daily (at least an hour each day)I'm going to definitely stay off dyes for the meantime. My next touch up will be 31st of May, 2018..Lwra sew the growth I'll get in 4 weeks.

How I Boost My Hair Growth Oils

Image
At this time of the year, we are all still pushing for length and growth using our oils . However, if you are impatient like me, you may want to try this method. I, typically, use one oil at a time but I noticed that it makes it difficult to use up others and at the same time, deprive my hair of the benefits the other oils provide. Hence, I decided to combine all my hair oils again. The last time I did that was about 3 years ago.So, I mixed up all 6 oils - ESO scalp oil  Jamaican Black Castor Oil, flaxseed and black castor oil from Ecoco, Avocado and carrot oil, chebe oil and wild growth oil. The essence is to benefit from these products all at once!I saw some old pictures of my natural hair back in 2012 and I realized I wasn't on supplements at that time yet I did use a mixture of oils so that's what I aim to achieve again. 

Your can click Our shop  to purchase your oil too.I want to use the oil mix up within 6 months so all the best to me. PS : I have about a litre if the mix…
