Vitamins for Hair

July 4, 2008 by · Comments Off 

I, as you already know have fine thin hair, and am anxiously awaiting till I can get hair extensions! Until then I must drudge forward with my never ending bad hair days. I have tried every single product you can think of, vitamins, shaving my head (if it grows faster on my legs then, well, why not?) not washing for longer periods of time, which is not easy for us with this kind of hair. The very next day it looks as though we must have gone a week without washing it! The only time I was completely amazed at my hair and how fast it grew was when I was pregnant. If I only had the patience for 10 children I would have beautiful LONG hair. But until this patience and day comes I drink water, take vitamins, use what I believe to be the right hair care products but still am left unsatisfied with my hair.

I am going to start a vitamin regimen of Vegetal Silica & Horsetail root this coming Monday. If anyone else would like to try this please stick to it for at least 3 months and keep me informed of any changes in your hair, skin nails, etc. Here are what I found to be the benefits of both:

Aging starts deep within your cells, which contain collagen, the binding element that literally holds your body together. As you age, collagen deteriorates and loses its natural elasticity, resulting in loose skin, thinning hair and brittle nails. One of the main components of collagen is silica.
According to an article appearing in the Swedish newspaper Halsoblast, Joan Collins, Goldie Hawn and Barbra  Streisand all credit their youthful appearance to Dr. Kervran’s patented vegetal silica. Goldie Hawn was said to find Dr. Kervran’s special water-soluble extract of silica from spring horsetail extremely beneficial for growing thick, healthy looking hair. Joan Collins and Barbra  Streisand were quoted as using it for longer, stronger nails and firm, supple skin.
The horsetail in Vegetal Silica is freshly harvested in the spring, when it contains more soluble silica, due to the concentration of bioflavonoids in the plant at that time. The gentle water extraction process not only preserves the bioflavonoids, but ensures a high level of many essential minerals and trace elements, making Vegetal Silica an important source of other health-restoring nutrients.
The proven effectiveness of Vegetal Silica is due to the soluble silica content and the synergistic balance of all the trace elements. Clinical studies, research and personal testimonials have shown Vegetal Silica to have beneficial effects on hair, skin and nails.
Organic vegetal silica has received recognition in Canada. However, research from other parts of the world shows the effectiveness of organic vegetal silica goes much further. Here is what has been found:
· Researchers Sullivan and Volcani (USA) at Columbia University (1973) concluded that silica is an essential nutrient.

· Dr. C. L. Kervran (France) found silica to have a direct relationship with the absorption of all minerals, especially calcium.

· Holt and Osborne (USA) demonstrated in their research the essential role silica has in maintaining supple skin.

· Drs. Kervran and Monceaux (France) found that with silica supplementation fragile nails became normal in a relatively short time period.

For those of you interested, take a photo of your hair and skin, take Vegetal Silica for the next 3 months and then please let me hear your comments. It would be nice to spread the word that yes, indeed you can change your hairs appearance simply by taking vitamins. If you can try to buy the brand flora, it is one of the best and contains the required daily intake. (90 Capsules – $16.59, 180 Capsules $ 30.49)

Till next time Good Luck,

You Ask – How Can I Make Hair Grow?

May 11, 2008 by · Leave a Comment 

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 grow-long-hair-fast.com and another fasterhairgrowth.com. 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.
