|My New Weave Look!|
Then two years ago, I got my hair weaved by Trayce Madre and it has grown, surpassing my original length. Today, for the most part, I have pretty healthy hair and all of my relaxer is gone. Yep, I'm natural under my weave. Weave has been a protecter to allow my hair to grow without all the heat from blow drying and curling.

While at BlogHer I met the owner of Hairfinity. Now I have to be honest. I have seen their Intsagram testimonies and I didn't believe the hype. Tiara and I have had a few conversations about this hair vitamin that claims to help your hair become healthy and grow. So when I saw their booth at BlogHer I stopped and told them what I thought. You know I'm never short of opinions and they met me word for word. LOL! But no, they were really nice about it. You can read about how Hairfinity works here.
I had a couple of conversations with the women working the booth at Hairfinity. One who is a breast cancer survivor. She cut her hair when she started chemotherapy. She told me that she wanted to have control, rather than surrender it to chemotherapy. She has been taking Hairfinity for a month and I was honestly impressed. She had more hair then I would have thought.
Another woman working the booth lost all of her hair in a car accident. The accident disfigured most of her face. She not only lost her hair, but also her hair line was virtually gone. I saw the pictures for myself. You talking about her life as a miracle, just the facial reconstruction alone was remarkable. Honestly, I just couldn't see how any of her hair would grow back after her cousin showed me the pictures and pointed to the woman in the picture standing a few feet away from me. "She's been on Hairfinity for two years," her cousin said. I was impressed again.

Sooooo, I'm putting HairFinity to the test for a year. Now my hair does grow when I'm wearing weave and I have no intention of stopping. Love weave, it's just far easier to manage than my natural hair. Prior to HairFinity, I've been marking my hair growth every three months when I get my weave redone. That's what I intend to do with HairFinity. I started taking the hair vitamin last Monday. In full disclosure, they did give me a three months supply at BlogHer so that made it easy for me to get started. I gave one month to Tiara to get her started. I felt like I had nothing to lose, but I will be purchasing the rest for the remainder of the year.
I am particularly concerned about my edges and the part of my hair at the very top that I leave out each time I weave so that I have a natural look. Those parts of my hair tend to grow a lot less then the hair braided under the weave.
I will check in every 3 months. I hope it works because I'm really rooting for Tymeka Lawrence and Brock Beauty. I'm so glad that they came to BlogHer or else I would have never put the product to the test.
Now in fairness, I do take a lot of medication and medication can impact the growth of your hair. My side kick, Tiara also started it last Monday and she will be my other marker. She also has some tough to grow areas in her hair, especially her edges. I can't wait to see her results. We are both giving Hairfinity a year. At the end of the day, the ingredients in HairFinity are a mixture of vitamins so I feel that its safe, but as always a person with health issues and on a any medicine regime should consult their physician before venturing off. The bottom picture is my natural hair one month before I got my current weave. Now let's watch it grow.
