October 27, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

Shopping for a hair straightener can be very confusing; the only thing most girls know for certain is that they want a ceramic hair straightener. Many hair irons tout all sorts of additional features such as titanium and tourmaline and these features really only add to the confusion on what to look for in a quality iron. For the most part getting your hair straightener from a salon supply store will get you a professional hair iron that will work better than anything that you can get at any drugstore. One quick way to get the iron you need is to ask around and talk to other women to see which irons they have used and how they feel those irons work for them.

Many women never stop to think about how dirty their curling iron gets even with just occasionally usage.

You Ask – How Can I Make Hair Grow?

Personally, my hair has never grown! No, I ‘m serious, after I got gum stuck in it when I was 8 and mom had to put the ol’ bowl around my head and cut it like no other little boy I ever saw, it just never grew back. Well, I guess it did somewhat. I will see friends then not see them for a year and they will say ” Hey you always get your hair cut the same length,” uh, NO, it just doesn’t grow! I have tried all sorts of things, never did try that one, you know, the ad with the girl in black and white with really long hair. The ad promises you can grow your hair within 7 days. If I can’t grow my hair within a year then I doubt there is a magic formula that’s gonna do it in 7 days! I hope I wasn’t wrong.


Some girls, like Giselle here, have naturally wavy, thick, beautiful hair. Not only would I love to have her hair but I think I could deal with a bit of her looks too! I found a couple sites that “say” they will help grow your hair, make it thicker and so on. If anyone tries these products I would love it if you could let me know if they actually work. Here’s one and another There products are different from one another but say they will do the same thing.


The best product that actually worked for me were vitamins. Vegetal Silica, Horsetail Root. These vitamins proved to actually make a noticeable difference in the growth of my hair. Oh, plus one other thing, pregnancy!!! Wow did my hair ever grow then, like weeds.

I also recommend taking a look at our past post on Healthy Hair Care. This post is full of great advice on maintaining healthy hair, which can also help lead to better hair growth.
