I sometimes forget to mention some of the articles I have written for the absolutely fantastic blog Global Couture. You should seriously check out the blog (not only for my articles 😉 ) they have fantastic stories, awe inspiring naturals, hair tips and much much more!
For my last article I touched on a topic that might make you roll your eyes at me…potentially…
I wrote about the sudden emergence of hair, nails and skin pills everywhere! Now before I get the side eye, I mentioned in the article and will mention here that I have nothing against these types of pills (as long as they are healthy and if they happen to be all natural even better).
However, my “issue” with them is if they are used as a replacement for healthy hair routines. If they are being taken in place of having a good healthy routine that involves giving ones hair tender loving care in the hopes that you will wake up with “long luscious healthy hair” that is when I frown.
I also have issues with false advertising! Seriously false ads give me allergic reactions! I believe that the vitamins, minerals etc in the pills can help our hair of course however, I have seen some before and after pictures that are just blatant lies! E.g. people tugging on randomly long pieces of hair with their neck almost bent completely back to show “how much growth they saw in 1 month”. Some fall victim to a vicious cycle of not having a healthy routine, turning to the “quick fix” tablets, a setback and then repeating it, all in the hopes that the tablets will give them the results they long for and they just end up spending tons of money and time. Again that is when I frown.
I cover all of this in the article and would love to hear what you think!
