The GF has made a drastic decision…she has de-weaved herself and has been left with a head full of bouncing and behaving hair- sort of. I admittedly have a few areas in my crown of glory that could certainly benefit from a little additional TLC, so I decided to do some research in order to arm myself with products that will help my hair continue to grow while addressing some breakage issues.
One of the products that came up in my search for ‘hair growth’ was biotin.
According to Wikipedia biotin is essentially a water soluble B-complex that is commonly used to promote hair and nail growth.
Biotin supplements are often recommended as a natural product to counteract the problem of hair loss in both children and adults. There are, however, no studies that show any benefit in any case where the subject is not actually biotin deficient. The signs and symptoms of biotin deficiency include hair loss which progresses in severity to include loss of eye lashes and eye brows in severely deficient subjects. Some shampoos are available that contain biotin, but it is doubtful whether they would have any useful effect, as biotin is not absorbed well through the skin.
Another tried but true product for repairing hair breakage isAphogee . There is no doubt about how terrible this stuff smells, but trust me the product really works. There are some testimonials and pictures on the site that truly attest to how solid this product is.
A really good soror, sister-friend of mine also recommended products by Jane Carter.
I have been using the hair nourishing serum at bedtime and wrapping my hair with a silk scarf at night.
Nursing hair back to health is certainly a timely process; but the right product, regular trims and patience can have your hair swinging in the sunshine in no time!
