It Shoots Out of My Head

My hair grows really fast. Literally, it shoots out of my head {clearly I'm not exaggerating. but it does grow really fast}. I know a lot of this has to do with genetics, but I think a fairly large amount of it has to do with maintenance. 

Runs in the family. See?

You know those weird people that take vitamins all the time? Guilty. As evidenced in the picture below, I take a total of 9 supplements a day. And I think these have contributed a lot to my hair growth through the years. 

What I take:
1. Liquid B12. Tastes nasty; works wonders for energy levels
2. Prenatal vitamin {no. I'm not pregnant or trying to become pregnant. It just has a lot of Folic Acid & Zinc}
3. Leg Vein health {which has horse chestnut & that helps reverse varicose veins}
4. Biotin, aka the best thing to help with hair growth ever. This stuff is amazing//can't live without it.

When we went to Paris, I didn't have room//weight in my suitcase to take my vitamins, and I could totally tell a difference. My skin was dull, my nails were brittle, my hair was dry & I just felt gross. So one of the first things I did after I got home {after using self tanner, painting my nails, & exfoliating} was to start taking my vitamins again! Man, I missed these things.  

Anyone else have a vitamin routine they would like to share with the class?


P.S. You should totally follow us on here. Promise you won't regret it.

My hair takes FOREVER TO GROW! Thankfully I finally learned about Biotin and have seen it make a huge difference for my hair. I am super interested in trying the B12 now since I don't drink caffiene and always feel like I need an extra pick me up in energy! thanks for sharing :)

My hair grows rather quickly too! I have to get my highlights/partial done every 5 weeks these days it grows so fast. I swear my stylist puts magic shampoo on it when she washes it so she can make more $$$. :) Nice to find you from ATP!

Wow. I don't take any vitamins and I swear my hair is the slowest growing thing on Earth. I could really use a faster growth rate. :)

i've started taking so many vitamins since i've gotten to spain. honestly i think it's the sole reason i haven't gotten super sick here yet. all the kid germs plus public transportaion plus minimal sleep and yet so far i've only had a mild cold. i also started taking fish oil and my hair has grown sooo fast! i take an antioxident and random multi-vitamins and immunity ones.. i really need the varicose vein one. mine are sooo bad
