Hairfinity Hype: 7 Months Progress

I’m hesitant to say that I have not received length because I have, but not as noticeable as I would have thought, or liked it to be. I also cannot say no because with my type 4 hair, shrinkage is real. But let this not discouraged you, I do believe Hairfinity does work. Patience is key. We all know natural hair can be a pain sometimes, but it doesn’t hurt to try new things.

Once I finish my seventh bottle, in celebration of not straightening my hair or using heat for seven months, I’ll straighten it to see how much growth I have gained. And then I will truly be able to see if I have gained the length I have been striving for.

This is an excerpt from an article I wrote about a month ago about my experience with Hairfinity. To read the whole article, click here.

So far, I have been taking Hairfinity for 7 months. And during those seven months, I have been alternating between my natural hair and protective hairstyles. Most of the time being in protective hairstyles (my favorite being Marley twists).

Finally the moment of truth, the reveal has come. This past weekend was my twentieth birthday, and I decided to celebrate by straightening my hair. I have used no heat for seven whole months. This is a big deal for me, usually I straighten my hair every time I take out one of my protective styles. Having a perm for two to two-and-a-half years, and then transitioning but still straightening my hair, I developed an admiration for straight hair. Not dependence, but admiration. I did not fully accept my natural, curly, kinky hair until I had to fully learn how to deal with it without the help of my mother when I got to college.

Fast forward to Hairfinity, I started my journey in January 2014, and it’s now August 2014. Let’s talk hair progress:

  • Length – As I said before I have type 4 hair. When I straightened my hair, I found there was growth, mostly in the back. The back of my hair grows way faster than the middle and front of my hair, so that was expected.
  • Volume – My hair has been thick my whole life, and Hairfinity has only added to that thickness. My goodness! I thought my hair was thick before, so if you have thin hair try taking Hairfinity.
  • Texture – Right now, my hair is in an ombre state because last May I dyed my hair bright auburn using the Shea Moisture hair dye line. So ultimately, my hair is two different textures, which is more noticeable when straightened (but only by feel, not look). My hair has been healthier since using Hairfinity, and looks glossier.
  • Curl Pattern – From using Hairfinity my curl pattern has changed. It’s become a bit looser and more defined, curl wise, which I don’t mind.

Here are pictures for comparison, pre and post Hairfinity with straightened hair:
