What Is Going On With My Hairfinity Challenge

It's past midnight but because I'm unable to sleep, I decided to do a hair update.

I've been on liquid iron for close to 2 weeks now after it was detected that it's gone low again. My diet hasn't been helpful either hence I'm left with no choice than to take the liquid iron as prescribed. I've paused the last few capsules to focus on the liquid iron. The catch is the liquid iron has some is the ingredients in the hairfinity hence I can't take both of them. 
On another note, I got 2 touch ups and my hair is going good. I just haven't had the time to take pictures due to a family crisis (keep us in your prayers).  The plan is to increase my water intake as soon as I can, add more yogurt to my diet and also take in more beet root juice.  Stay tuned for the update in the coming weeks. 

Hairfinity Week 4

I've done quite well in taking the hairfinity consistently. However, it came at another cost!
My hair is back to the length it was prior to the 2 cuts in July. I haven't damaged my hair with any product for the first time in a long time! Whilst that's good news, I have worse news and that explains why I haven't been able to write.
I've virtually spent a full week on my health. It turned out that I had low iron again! Though it's not as bad as it used to be, I've been put on 5 bottles of liquid iron for the next 4 weeks.

Thus, I can't take the second bottle and the rest. One of the things I noticed about my hair was though it was growing in well, it looked a bit patchy in some areas and that immediately alerted me to a potential low iron situation. I'm so conscious of my body hence I'm quick to know when something is off! I'm glad I got it checked. This isn't about the hairfinity, if you've watched my video, you'll know I've give…

What's The Use of Retinol For Your Skin?

Retinol belongs to a class of compounds known as retinoids. These agents are derived from vitamin A, an ingredient that increases cell turnover and enhances collagen production.  Not only does it impressively decrease wrinkles but it’s lauded for its ability to clear up acne and blur pigmentation caused by sun damage
As a person ages, collagen and cell production slow down, but retinol helps to encourage cell regeneration and ensure that new collagen continues to form.  As collagen is replenished and old skin cells are shed, fine lines recede and skin appears brighter and smoother.
