Long time, no see, uh???? Got a wild hair to blog again. I miss this medium of the interaction of the beauty community, so here I am.:)
Now, I made a New Year's resolution to take HSN ( Hair, Skin and Nails) vitamins for a full year and I have been doing pretty good at it. For the exception of a few weeks missed here and there, I have been taking them consistently. The main issue I had to solve with them was finding one that I could swallow comfortably and I did that.
I have a lot of my friends ask "How do you know those vitamins are working?" "Is your hair longer?".
From my experience, there are a couple of ways I see my HSN vitamins working their magic. Here are a couple you may experience or see as you take them CONSISTENTLY.
-My nails are stronger, not necessarily longer but the peeling and breaking stops.
-My cuticles get thicker.
-Around my menstual cycle, my skin has no breakouts at all. #miracleshappen
-The roots of my hair are thicker and my hair becomes harder to detangle. Remember your hair grows from the roots, not the ends. That's where you will see growth.
-I shave and remove hair from my legs, underarms and bikini area more often.
-My lashes grow wild. lol! True story, I have grown these wild lashes, not thicker but wild.
One of my negative side effects is that I can't take the vitamins on an empty stomach or will be in stomach trouble all day. I take the HSN vitamins on a full belly, either in the morning or after dinner.
My favorite HSN vitamins right now are Nature's Bounty Optimal Solutions Hair, Skin & Nails Gummies with Biotin. I take 4 of them, giving me 5,000 mcg of Biotin.
So.....are you taking HSN vitamins and how are they working for you? Let me know in the comments!!!
