Amazing Hair Growth

This stuff right here… THE TRUTH! I washed and deep conditioned my hair and used it as a leave in and it was fabulous. The smell is amazing!

I blow dried my hair and straightened it with my curling iron. Flatirons never quite worked for me. I got the idea to put a little bit more of the Darcy’s Botanical – Pumpkin Seed Curl Moisturizing Conditioner on my dry, straightened hair after I wrapped it. I put my scarf on my head quickly before it had time to curl and my hair was delicious the next morning.

Winter is the season where my hair flourishes. I’ve been blow drying my hair to prevent ssk’s because those are what causes me to trim my hair super often like a madwoman and it’s what prevents me from seeing amazing hair growth. So far so good!

I knew my hair was growing, but when Marsha did an impromptu length at brunch, she said “Oh, so you’re about bra strap length!” Now, I clearly remember from my last length check (now that I have my official length check t-shirt) that I was a little above BSL, so I decided to measure it. Look at me!

My hair was blow dried in the pic on the left and blow dried and straightened with the curling iron in the pic on the right, so the length of all of my hair looks different, but if you pay attention to the piece that I’ve stretched, I’d say I’ve gained a little more than an inch in 1.5 months. Talk about fast hair growth!

Moisturizing and protective styling is the trick!

Senk Conditioner

On my last wash day, I tried the Senk Conditioner for the first time. I decided to try it because I enjoyed the shampoo bar so much.

The conditioner smells very similar to the shampoo bar, which is a pleasant smell.

The directions state that it can be used as a rinse-out conditioner or as a leave-in. I decided to try it as a rinse-out conditioner.

The conditioner is pretty heavy. It doesn’t really emulsify like other conditioners which caught me by surprise. It felt heavy, even by my standards because I usually don’t mind that. Part of me wanted to mix it with another conditioner but I decided to give it a fair try.

I left it in for about 30 minutes with a shower cap on. After rinsing my hair, it felt moisturized. It didn’t feel heavy or greasy as I expected. I like this conditioner because of all of the natural oils it contains, but I can see it being too heavy for a lot of people. It may work well as a leave-in. I’ll have to try that!

What’s in it that caught my eye?

  • Olive & Coconut Oil gently cleanse and protect hair strands
  • Jojoba oil & blend of 5 essential oils balance and soothe the scalp
  • Vegetable Glycerin a natural humectant moisturizes
  • Rosemary Extract stimulates circulation & strengthens the hair
  • Palmarosa essential oil balances the sebum

    Would I buy it again? Probably not, unless it wows me before the bottle finishes. The shampoo bar is definitely a winner though!
