Every woman has different problems with their hair. Some struggle with split ends, others have trouble with thinning hair, the majority of us can’t obtain the shine, length or volume they desire.
I fit firmly in the middle camp, I’ve got thinning hair and I’ve been struggling with hair loss due to the copious amounts of medication that I have taken for years, that combined with normal styling with straighteners/curlers and during my 3 years at uni my hair went through a variety of colours.
I strive for longer, thicker, fuller hair. I’ve been tempted to get hair extensions for years but was put off by the cost and maintenance of them. So I decided to look at shampoos and tablets. This time I brought Hairburst capsules, one of the most raved about hair vitamins on the internet, my Instagram feed is filled with ‘Before and After’ pictures. Now I’ll admit I was pretty skeptic, I mean we all know how those pictures can be faked with either hair extensions, photoshop or just clever hairstyling so I was pretty anxious to get started and see if anything would occur.
After 2 weeks, I was considering giving up. I didn’t notice a thing, but I figured I had nothing to lose by continuing the regimen. I already had the product, and I brought the 3 month pack with 3 bottles containing 60 capsules (it’s cheaper that way). Perhaps I was being too impatient.
After a month, I realized I was being too impatient. I noticed some small signs that my hair was improving: less hair was coming out in the shower, my hair was strangely thicker and felt stronger.
These weren’t massive improvements but now I have finished the 3 month pack. I’ve noticed some serious improvements in my hair. It’s thicker, stronger, and more brilliant than before and my hair seemed more lustrous. It’s much, much stronger than a three months ago and it doesn’t crack when I’m straightening it or curling it like it used to. It’s less brittle and actually feels soft and plush when I run my hands through it, it looks longer to the naked eye. I’m not sure if you can see much difference in my before and after pictures (which you can view on my Instagram) but I can notice it myself.
The only problems I have with the product is that it’s kinda expensive, and it takes much longer than sprays or shampoos to be effective. But I think it will remain consistent as opposed to wearing off like with a spray when the moment you stop using it stops working.
All in all, it’s a good product. My hair became thicker, longer, stronger and altogether healthier, not longer as promised. On the downside, it takes a while to work. It’s also a bit pricey (£60 for the 3 month supply from Holland and Barratt)..but I think I’m gunna give it another go. I may not have mermaid locks yet but maybe one day my hair will be strong enough to use like Sindel from Mortal Kombat (I’m wondering how many of you will get that reference)
Remember everyone’s hair is different. If you want your hair to improve in any way give it a go, if you do give it time and let me know how it goes xxx
