Manetabolism update: 6-weeks

Well, this post was actually written last week and pictures were taken last week Monday. I just never got a chance to update and post so it is somewhat late. 

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!


  1. Wow J, your hair is growing so much, you are kicking that post partum shedding's bum right now.
    YAY for using your own hair to do your buns, it is always nice not to need fillers.
