From Frumpy to Full Beautiful Hair with Nioxin  #NIOXINChallenge

Having gone through several pregnancies, I’ve experienced pretty much every symptom you can think of. Morning sickness, leg cramps, constipation, backaches; you name it, I’ve had it! Through the years, several of my good friends and family members were pregnant at the same times as I was and we always compared what we were going through. For the most part we all experienced similar issues, weird cravings and sensitivity to smells. But the one thing that a few lucky ladies experienced that I wished for each pregnancy was thick, lustrous, shiny and fast growing hair!

Of course, I was the complete opposite. My hair actually got a little bit thinner and duller with each pregnancy and nothing helped. I tried all types of products and even home remedies to get my hair to grow back thicker and stronger but nothing seemed to work for me.

I may or may not have been sent to the couch to sleep one night because I had a mixture of mayo, avocado and egg yolks slathered on my head but I’m not going to confirm that. Come on, I need to preserve a little bit of dignity here.

I finally just gave up and begrudgingly accepted that my hair would never be as thick as it used to be. I started just throwing it in a ponytail or a bun every day because it was simple and it also disguised how thin my hair had become.

My husband and I were invited to a formal military event and I began to panic. My normal ponytail or messy bun just weren’t going to cut it for this special night. I grabbed my laptop and started Google-ing formal hairstyles to disguise thinning hair. There are lots of cool tricks out there to help make hair appear thicker and fuller. I opted for a pretty updo, with my hair piled on top of my head to cover my thinning crown and a halo of soft, bouncy curls. I really felt like a princess that night and never once felt self conscious about my thin, dry hair. I also realized something that I had never given much thought to before. I was far from the only one experiencing thinning hair, in fact, I couldn’t believe how common thinning hair is for men and women of all ages.

Like me, lots of women notice thinner hair after a pregnancy, but thinning hair in men and women can also be caused by things like medical problems,medications, genetics, stress and so many other factors. It can affect you no matter how old you are, even teens are going through this!

While Google-ing I found out about the #NIOXINChallenge.
NIOXIN is encouraging anyone with thinning hair to take this 30 day challenge and share their story. I’m not going to lie, at first I was like “uh, ok I don’t think so”. I wear my hair in exactly 2 different styles to cover up my thinning hair, I’m not going to share it with the world. But then, I started thinking and the more I thought about doing the challenge the more free I felt. I deserve to feel the wind in my hair just as much as anyone else right? Right!

I love the tingling sensation on my scalp when I use my System 5 kit. The Night Density Rescue Treatment is designed with something called NIOXYDINE24 technology and it’s clinically proven to promote hair density. It’s filled with things that are good for the hair like Biotin, Vitamin E and Caffeine. I use it every night and it smells amazing. The Bodifying Foam is part of the 3D styling range and it’s absolutely awesome. Definitely a keeper for me! The best part though, is when you start to see results; and with their

I noticed little things like less hair on my shirt, more natural shine, less of my scalp showing; and I knew it was working. In the past couple weeks I even started wearing my hair down every once in awhile. I feel more confident and I’m not constantly checking to see if my thin spots are showing. I also feel differently about thinning hair now. I realize I am not alone and that it’s more common than most people realize. After all, we are all doing things to try to hide it. But it’s nothing to be ashamed or embarrassed about. In fact, sharing what you are going through may help someone else who is experiencing the exact same thing and it will make you feel good to let it out.

I am very pleased with my results, the 30 Day Challenge really did make a difference, and I will definitely continue to use it.  Needless to say, I do Believe that I went From Frumpy to Full Beautiful Hair with Nioxin #NioxinChallenge
