I have never been known for fluffy flowing locks. As a teen I used to look at my friends who had thick, lustrous, and curly hair and dream that someday I would wake up with hair that had body. Hairdressers would tell me I had thin hair, but lots of it. I always wondered what they were seeing that I wasn’t. I made my hair work, and I use that term loosely, by using copious amounts of hairspray, curling irons or always wearing my hair up.
Thin and limp hair is just something I lived with, but after each pregnancy my hair would go from looking limp and thin to downright thinning. I hated brushing my hair because I couldn’t spare another strand and inevitably I would come away with a handful when I was done. After my 4th baby and serious thyroid issues my hair issues peaked. I never went out without something on my head, becoming well-known for my do-rag collection. I had every color of the rainbow and one to match every outfit. I finally decided that if my hair was short maybe no one would notice how thin it had gotten.
I hated my hair.
75 per cent of new moms notice more hair shedding than normal after childbirth. It is part of the many changes a woman goes through during pregnancy. It’s not uncommon to go from thick, shiny hair before pregnancy to see it quickly transform to thin-looking, limp hair weeks after giving birth.
When the opportunity to review NIOXIN as a #PGmom came up I jumped at the chance. I’m so very glad I did too. In just 2 weeks of washing my hair every other day it looks fluffier and fuller. While it is a pricey collection of hair products the results I have seen make spending it worth every penny (nickel?).
NIOXIN is the #1 choice of hair stylists to deliver fuller, denser-looking hair and I can see why. The difference is obvious in these two photos taken just about 2 weeks apart. I was sent the NIOXIN System Kit to review which includes a cleanser, scalp therapy and treatment. You can also add NIOXIN DiaMax to your hair care routine. DiaMax is a daily leave-in treatment that increases the thickness of each hair strand by up to 4.5 per cent after one use.
NIOXIN works by creating the optimal scalp environment for your hair to grow stronger and easier by removes follicle clogging residues that leaves that scalp feeling cleaner and refreshed. It also provides thicker looking hair by increasing the fullness and strength of each strand of hair. Since starting the system I have noticed less post shower fallout and my hair really does look amazing.
