Hey hey beautiful peopleeeee!!
How are you all?? I know I’ve taken a pretty long hiatus from the blog. For that, I apologise but that is not without good reason! I have lots to tell you guys about life recently!
Firstly, I have moved to Los Angeles, California! A bit of a surprise, I know (well, it’s not a surprise if you follow me on Instagram but yeah!). As many of you know, I go to university in London but my course allows for a year abroad and I chose to go to Los Angeles! That is the main reason I’ve been MIA lately. Moving half way around the world and trying to settle in ain’t easy, kids! I am lovinggg it so far – especially, the gorgeous weather! If anyone has any recommendations of stuff I should try while I’m here, please tell me! I’ll be in school here till June.

Thennnn just as I was ready to get back into blogging, I fell pretty damn ill! STRESS! Had to go to the hospital after displaying some worrying symptoms. I was on antibiotics for TEN days, which just sucked the energy outta me! Anyway, I’m feeling soooo much better now so I’M BACK!
Anyway, onto what you guys are here for: HAIR!! And this one applies to everyone – natural, transitioning, relaxed etc. I’m talking about biotin! Now biotin is a water-soluble B-vitamin that usually comes in the form of tablets. It is often taken for the maintenance of healthy skin and nails as well as a host of other medical issues one may have. It is found in certain foods in fairly small quantities (e.g. peanuts, dark leafy greens, liver etc) however, due to the small quantities, people often take biotin in supplement form. I don’t want to get too science-y on you guys (not that I know much about science!) so I’ll tell you about my experience using biotin.
I first used biotin in 2013. If I remember correctly, I took it for about 3 months and I noticed an improvement in my hair. So what it did for me:
- My hair got superrrrr thick!! Like so so thick! I definitely credit the Hairfinity and the biotin with thickening my hair that had gotten so thin from the relaxers I used to use.
- My hair was a lot stronger. The biotin definitely did what it said on the bottle in terms of strengthening my hair. I noticed less breakage and less shedding during that time.
- My hair definitely grew quite a lot during that time. I wouldn’t say the growth was anything OUTSTANDING but my hair definitely grew a little more than average.
- I was retaining more length, which I think is part of the strengthening aspect of the biotin. However, I’m not sure if I can totally credit the biotin seeing as I had started taking good care of my hair when I was taking it.
