For months now I’ve been harping on about this supplement I take, and for good reason: my hair. After 5 years of non growth, this is the first product which has stimulated it’s growth and I couldn't be happier to share this with you.
Hair is a very sensitive topic, especially when you:
a) have an incredible diet
b) model full time; and
c) have make up artists draw on your scalp to hide it’s sparseness.
I am sure in reading this you can imagine how mortified I was the first time this was. And don’t get me wrong, I tried everything: silica, biotin, hair / skin / nail supplements, scalp massaging, not cutting my hair, cutting my hair, conditioning treatments, coconut oil, hair masks - if it was recommended, I tried it. But NOTHING made a difference until this product. And if you’re thinking it would be stress related, I completely agree - stress plays a major factor. But to be stressed to the point that my hair failed to grow in a 5 year period; years which I experienced as adventurous and overall pretty great; it just doesn't compute. And more importantly: given that even in the periods which were much more relaxed in this time frame, my hair never regained it’s natural growing. Until Vida Glow.
I would like to point out that my main objective of this post is not to sell the product. I’m not going to give a code at the bottom to enter in which gives you 10% off. The reason I write this is because I know from countless conversations that this problem of hair growth is extremely common, shared between females who have often subjected their poor locks to years of GHD tourture and experimenting with the latest shade of blonde. And it is horrible to feel helpless in this problem, and I am certain that majority of these women do not have a solution and simply manage, rather than solve their problem - which definitely isn’t ideal.
Vida Glow is made from marine collagen: the layer of connective tissue which is rich in micronutrients such as iodine, calcium, magnesium, zinc and selenium amongst them, as well as being made from protein itself. This is what keratin aka your hair is - a type of protein. It’s nothing artificial, weird or foreign to your body: it simply boosts what may lack in your diet; or lack being absorbed. I highly encourage you to find out for yourself - read the articles and decide. I will add that It’s not suitable for vegans (marine = fish) but for everyone else; I couldn’t recommend it more.
