Are we obsessed with hair growth pills – Global Couture

Hey Maicurlies,

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! 

Thanks

Shopping Day

Hey Maicurlies,

Over the weekend I ended up doing a little shopping (window shopping) to get inspired for Christmas gifts. I like keeping it simple while shopping so I don’t have to worry too much about whether everything is “in place” while walking around for hours and rushing whenever needed.

Walking around in this would be AWESOME! If I came across these pieces they would be bought (for myself) and quickly!

Have you started Christmas shopping? If so, what did you buy? I would love to hear from you, maybe get a little inspiration from Maicurlies!

I hope you are having a lovely day and will have a fantastic week ahead!

Thanks

Casual Saturday

Hi Maicurlies,

So this is another “Casual Saturday Outfit” that you can throw together should you have to leave the comfort of a warm environment (if you live in cold climates.) 

Happy Saturday!
