Big Sexy Hair Products: I have been using Big Sexy Hair shampoo, conditioner and root pump for the past 2 years. I really like these products because they help give my hair volume, especially the root pump! The root pump is put in your damp roots and then you blow dry your hair for mega volume! Sometimes the products can be a bit pricey but I have been able to find them at Marshalls or TJMaxx for reduced prices. In general, I always buy volumizing hair products but if you are interested in a specific brand you can try these!
|Paul Mitchell Strength Super Strong Daily Treatment|
Paul Mitchell Strength: I did a YT video about the Paul Mitchell Strength Super Strong hair products. These products are designed specifically to help strengthen, smooth and repair hair. When I noticed a lot of fallout in the shower and on my bed pillow, I started using the shampoo, conditioner and liquid leave in treatment. I noticed within the first 2 weeks that my amount of fallout had significantly decreased! I was so excited!!
|Nioxin Scalp Treatment 2|
Nioxin Scalp Treatment (#2): This was another shampoo/conditioner and leave in foam treatment I used as well. This treatment (#2) was specifically for natural fine hair that is noticeably thinning. There are different numbers for different hair textures. The treatment helps to repair the hair shaft from inside out using a combination of vitamins for the scalp.
*One thing about the foam leave in serum is that too much will make your dry hair feel greasy!*
|Nubian Heritage Grow & Strengthen Treatment Masque|
Nubian Heritage Grow and Strengthen Masque: I use this before I wash my hair. I wet my hair and then coat it in this hair masque for 15-30 minutes before I take my shower. It helps condition my hair and leaves my hair feeling soft and looking shiny. It says it helps to grow and strengthen by stopping breakage. I try to use this masque at least 1-2 times per week. You can find it at Target in the ethnic hair product aisle.

Biotin: I was introduced to Biotin by a hair dresser who cut my hair. She suggested that I try taking it because she heard from other clients that it was good for hair. Biotin is basically a water soluble B-vitamin that promotes healthy hair, skin and nails. It increases hair elasticity which helps to stop breakage/fall out. It helps make your hair shiny and healthy. In addition, it also helps your nails grow faster and stronger. It also helps make your skin look healthy and clear. I won't get into a long scientific paragraph because you can research it more if you are interested. Here is a useful article I found online. I get my Biotin at CVS, Walgreens, etc. You can find it in most drugstores where they sell natural supplements and vitamins. It is also a reasonable price; not expensive. If you have any hesitation or questions I would contact my dermatologist to make sure it is safe for you to use. However, I have not had any problems taking this supplement.
Good luck with your hair growth and care!!!
