So my sister has a beautiful head of hair. Her curls are easy to manage. With ease she can get is straight or hold up a fabulous style for hours. It is not the curls that get me wishing the gene pool had been a tiny bit more generous with me, it is how thick and rich it is. So yes, I want thicker hair. Fuller hair is a dream of mine I have thin and flat hair. #MoreisBeautiful for me on this point.
The truth is that sometimes I think this desire of mine for a Medusa-like very full hair might take me one day to the cleaners with the amount of money I have spent over the years in every type of products that promises volume. My sister can't count how many pairs of shoes she has anymore, and I lost count of the bottles that fill my bathroom drawer of hair products that are supposed to help me on my quest. I have a vast collection of hair products, and all have something to the effect of "more volume" on them. Sad thing is that, I have not found a product that gives me what I need.
Some product require from me to re-apply a few times a day to prevent my flat look to overcome to product. Many times I end up mixing and using a few different products at a time. This technique has helped a bit. Problem with that is that I need to make sure I have all 5 products with me at all times so that I can re-touch and maintain my slightly improved hair look. O.K., breathe in, breathe out. It is frustrating battle. I love my hair. I just want to love it more. Today is the big reveal from our announcement on Instagram:
At Walmart I found Women's Rogaine. This products is a hair regrowth treatment that reactivates hair follicles to stimulate growth. I figured after so many different volume items I have used throughout the years, it is time to go for something that is clinically proven to regrow hair. Knowing that it is the #1 dermatologist recommended brand was one more incentive to try Women's Rogaine. I am loving this product because:
it is easy to use: you apply it as you would a hair mousse
only a capful is required and you apply directly on your scalp
it is not messy: it is a foam
it is not greasy
it is not a bulky packaging, so it is easy to manipulate
instructions are clear and simple to follow
it has a child resistant opening mechanism
In addition to this list, I do feel I am using a more serious product to get fuller hair because it is after all a clinical product that has research and studies to back it up. I have eliminated: a volume shampoo, a volume conditioner, a volume mousse that I used in combination with an oil to easy the frizz. I have said good by to my leave in volume conditioner too. Yes, I wiped clean my cabinets too!
Right now I changed my shampoo and conditioner to "Pure Renewal" in the spirit of a new life for my hair No need to reapply anything is giving me plenty to smile about. Just one daily application in the morning after I shampoo my hair with my Aveeno shampoo and then it is on to styling it. My hair routine has been cut down from 30 minutes to 5! Plus I don't need to think about it again! I should see results between 6 and 8 weeks of use, so nothing to report as of yet besides a shinier hair with no frizz.
Women's Rogaine has changed my attitude overall. I am optimistic, all smiles and with at least 20 minutes more in my hands to savor my coffee every morning. To this I am adding the joy of saving because right where I found Women's Rogaine in Walmart there were $10 off coupons for the 4 month supply presentation of it. Ahhhhh life is good!
