Manetabolism Hair Vitamins – Product Review

20140316-165909.jpg

If you follow me on Instagram @AHairStory (which you should), you know I’m on my second month of taking Manetabolism Hair Vitamins.

I began the Healthy Hair Growth Challenge on February 1st. I began taking Manetabolism Hair Vitamins, two capsules a day as instructed.

This was my beginning length check. My hair was twisted, but I untwisted a twist in the back to get an accurate length check. I forgot to untwist the front one though. Oops!

My mom and my sis joined me on the challenge as well.

To answer some burning questions…

I did see some awesome growth after just one month. I did not experience any breakouts. I did have a headache the first day and none after. Was it related to the vitamins? Idk. I didn’t take a break in between month 1 and month 2, so I can not say whether there is shedding when you stop taking them. I will say that I was taking Hair Volume from GNC prior to starting Manetabolism and there was a break in between and I didn’t experience any shedding.

The dose is two capsules a day. I recommend taking it with a meal and drinking an adequate amount of water because it does contain fat soluble and water soluble vitamins.

Here’s my growth for a little over one month. Focus on the length in comparison to my sweater.

I will continue to take Manetabolism hair vitamins. As I say… Ankle length or bust!

Product Review: Pomegranate Mint Julep Lip Care Set

20130118-230610.jpg

Today’s review is Cream & Coco‘s Pomegranate Mint Julep lip care set.

I was excited about getting a lip scrub. I remember back in the days Oprah recommended brushing your lips with a soft bristle toothbrush as a way of exfoliating them. What could be better than exfoliating them with sugar?!

I love the scrub, the smell is delightful, I try not to let it get in my mouth though. The oils in it seem to come to the surface when it’s in the jar, so I mix well before applying the scrub. I would recommend using the scrub over the sink because grains of sugar do fall. After using the scrub, I’m left with soft, moisturized lips. My one wish is that there was a little slot on the side of the scrub to store the spatula. It’s fallen and gotten lost so many times… especially since it’s clear in color.

I like that the day lip treatment has a white top and the night lip treatment had a black top. This eliminates confusion (or even taking the time to read) about which one is for day use and which one is for night use. I find the day treatment to be more moisturizing than the night one, so I use that one more.

Definitely enjoying the lip care set. I’d say it’s worth trying.

XOXO,
