Msm, Biotin and my hair.

I’m a slave under supplements and hair products. This is a fact.
The last month I have been taking:

Normal ABC vitamin
Omega 3

The above is for my general health, but listen to this:

Biotin
Zinc
Iron
MSM

The above is only for my hair. Only for my hair. I don’t even care if they are good for me as a person, that’s not why I started taking them, no, I only bought and researched about them for my hair. Stupid, but that’s the way it is. So, now after one month with all the above, I will increase my dose of MSM. All the rest I have eaten for a long time, but MSM is new in my routine, and now I will increase from my 1500mg a day to 3000mg. Lots of people have had great results with increasing MSM, so now I will give it a go. Clearer skin and faster growing hair, as well as better concentration and it also said to “detox” the body. I could need some more of this.

So, that’s the plan. No more extensions. Only my own hair. Phuuuuu. I do miss those extensions, but it will be worth the fight with myself to not have another 5 years of extensions.

Supplements.

Im so unbelievably tired of all the supplements that im eating. I would love to just stop wit hall of them and never eat a vitamin again. However these last days i have realized for the first time since taking out my extensions in February, that hey, my hair is almost ok. Off course it is a mess due to bleach and the none existing trims… but it has grown stronger and longer the last months. So, the question is, have these damn supplements helped or is it just placebo? No matter what, I dont dare to stop with them, so here´s to another morning of, errrrrrr, Zinc, Biotin, Iron, MSM, Multivitamins, and some Omega 3 stuff. 

Today: Orange lipstick, hair in a bun and a blazer. I guess thats the closest i get to looking smart. (Interview mood) Straight after that to the gym and then off to meet C. Have not seen him since i left my old job so will be more then lovely to see him… he probably have some great stories to tell me about life and its wonders…

Biotin, Zinc, MSM and the rest

Sometimes I do wonder if im crazy.. The amount of suplements that i eat to get my poor hair back into shape is crazy. But let me tell you, i think it is working!

After years and years of extensions, i decided sometime in January (almost bullied into it, yes, you know who you are) to remove the extensions and see if it “could” cope without them for at least 3 months. Now this is harder then what you can think after a couple of wayyyyyyy to much hair on your head for many years.

Now you get what I mean with having just a bit to much hair? Yeah, not good.. at least not when i look back at it. ( also the pose, please dont even go there.) And im telling you, my real hair was not happy under all of this.

So said and done, I deciced to give my real hair a chance. So i went mental on Holland and Barett. Food and hair suplements in masses was bought and i started taking the biotin and zink in addition to the regular, vitamin C, Omega 3, and general mulitvitamin, I cant even tell you how man blogs and youtube clips i have read and watched to find the ” right” thing that will  make my hair grow faster, better, stronger, well you get it.

Not to forget, on a try to not have the extensions around 4 years ago, I decided to give Brazilian Blowout a try. I tell you now, dont do that, helped for a month, but then the breakage of my hair was horrible. But i tell you more about that another time.

Back to Biotin and Zinc:

Biotin is also common known as “the hair vitamin”, It is necessary for cell gowth and is often included in health products for skin and nails etc, however not in the high levels that i eat it in, for the higher dose you will need to buy a suplement with only biotion in. I eat 3mg up to 7mg some days, but never less then 3mg. This to speed up my hair growth and also help the volume and texture of my hair.

Zinc is supposed to suport the normal function of immune system and also suports the maintenance of normal skin, hair and nails. Why i started eating the zinc was due to the breakouts i started getting due to my high dose of daily Biotin, and i tell you now, start eating Zinc if you have problems with your skin! My breakouts are gone, and i also recomended it to my younger brother who suffers from acne, after just 2 weeks, his skin was clearing up! Amazing.

After 4 months of eating Biotin and Zinc my hair felt stronger and healthier, I didnt feel that it helped it grow faster ( however my nails have ) and now i have almost got thru 8 months without the hair extensions. Now that is not a bad result for me.

I have now done even more reading, and have also started eating Iron and MSM since 2 weeks, so lefts see when I will have long and healty hair. I have given myself until X-mas until the extensions might get a chance again… he who live will see…

Im trying…

to get my domain to this site from my old. Not working to well… hopefully up soon… but it is pissing me off and im stuck. Why oh why dont i know just a bit more about computers?

Ok, waiting for a phone-call at 10:30 and then after that to the gym… Going to burn some fat and try to tone some abs, so i will be half dead when im back, but that is never a bad thing.

Hmmm… what else? Tonight a concert in Angel, so will get myself pretty for that, looking forward to that a lot. Not the pretty part, but the concert. Just to clarify that.

Damn, I have forgotten my vitamins. I counted them yesterday, there are alway 10 vitamins i eat a day. 10! might be to much.
