Products I’m Loving Lately for Hair Growth

Products I’m Loving Lately for Hair Growth

Before I got pregnant with my third baby, I was dealing with some rheumatoid arthritis flare-ups and had to administer some pretty heavy duty injectables into my body every few days.   An unfortunate side effect was thinning hair.  Couple that with some postpartum hair loss, and my hair was in need of a little TLC. Getting my hair back to where I want it to be has been quite the journey, but I am getting there with the help of the products below.  I’ve also been letting it air dry and trying to wear it in its natural wavy state (which...

I was pretty proud of myself for packing lightly, but there were some skin care and hair care essentials that I knew I had to bring…no matter what. Ursa Major Fantastic Face Wash I received a sample of this face wash in my last Petit Vour box, and honestly, I wasn’t overly excited to try it...

I don’t know about you, but I love to read “What’s in my shower?” posts and also like to watch those videos on YouTube.  Since I recently switched out a bunch of my products, I figured that it would be the perfect time for an update of my own. By the way, this doesn’t include my husband’s products.  But don’t worry, you’re not missing much! Sibu Beauty Sea Buckthorn Face & Body Bar This soap is quite moisturizing, so I recommend it especially if you have dry skin.  It is also really good...
