This morning I began using HR23+, a hair regrowth supplement.
If you have been reading my blog for a while, you may remember me writing about how I started to lose a lot of hair after my son was born. At the time, I figured it was due to hormonal changes and had hoped that when I finished breastfeeding my hair would return to its normal state. You can read more in my post Hair Hair Everywhere.
Well, that never happened. Instead, my hair has continued to thin and I don’t see much regrowth at all. I don’t consider myself a vain person, but I have always had super thick hair, so cleaning bunches out of the shower drain each day is disheartening and I do admit it has lowered my self-esteem some.
I saw an advertisement on Twitter looking for bloggers to try out and give a review of HR23+, and I thought perfect!
For the past few months, I have been trying not to wear a ponytail, brush my hair too roughly, and to only wash my hair every other day with the hopes that these changes would make a difference. I have been taking some generic hair, skin, and nails gummy vitamins and using a shampoo containing biotin and collagen. I haven’t noticed any positive changes from anything I’ve tried and dislike the shampoo, as it doesn’t lather well and makes my hair feel greasy after washing, so I am ready to try something new that has a lot of great reviews online.
I took some photographs of my hairline, which you can see below so that in a month I can check back in and compare to see how well the product has worked for me.
My hairline used to be fuller and much lower on my forehead. I used to have to buy barrettes, hair clips, and elastics made larger specifically for thick hair because the regular ones either wouldn’t hold my hair or they would break, but now I can use my daughter’s small ones without any problems.
Even though I had only discussed it on my blog and with my physician, my mom even noticed the change in my hair.
As a reminder, before starting any new medications or supplements, please speak to your physician. I spoke with my provider about all of the ingredients in HR23+ to ensure that it would not have an adverse effect or cause an interaction with any of my daily medications and was given the green light.
I am excited to see how well the HR23+ will work for me and to let you know! I will check back in with you in a month.
