As of last week, I have been taking manetabolism for 6-weeks. While I didn't have a lot to say about it during my one month update post, I have had an awesome/positive experience since then.
Since a picture says a thousand words, here are pictures of my postpartum hair journey so far with manetabolism.
My 6-week verdict is that it is working great! I've gained about an inch in all areas of my hair. I haven't taken great pictures since I barely have time to but I'll try to do better next time.
On a VERY positive note though, my shedding has significantly reduced. It is almost non-existent! Now, that's what I'm talking about.
I'm looking forward to taking more pictures next week when I complete my second bottle of the vitamin.
The great thing about being natural is that I can experiment with different styles. I know you can do that with relaxed or texlaxed hair but my hair could never really hold a style while I was relaxing or texlaxing my hair. Being natural, my hair is fuller and I can do more with it.
I follow several natural hair pages/people on Instagram. Earlier this week, I saw this style. I feel in love with it and decided to try it.
But instead of a puff, I wanted something I could wear throughout the week so I did a bun. Check it out.
I am very proud of this style because it is my first bun since going natural. And not just that, it is ALL MY HAIR!!! I didn't have to add anything into the bun. So obviously, as a good reminder of it, I had to take multiple pictures of my bun :-). Now, I am excited about straightening my hair. Perhaps I'll do it on the 1-year anniversary of my big chop in November. At which point, I'll have a full 2-years of natural hair growth since I transitioned for a year before doing the big chop. Definitely something to look forward to.
In other news, here's my weekly mommy-daughters selfie. I love taking pictures with these beautiful faces. Being a mom is by far the most rewarding thing I have every done.
We have 2 birthday parties to attend tomorrow and JOE is pretty excited about both of them. I'm looking forward to them as well.
Have a fabulously blessed weekend and remember to be kind to strangers!
