Hair Journey 2010 – I want thicker hair!

This year I’d like to focus on getting my hair in shape. I feel blessed – I have brownish/black silky hair. It grows fairly quickly, and is easy to maintain. It covers my scalp – there is no patchiness or thinning. However, I’d like my hair to be the healthiest that it can be – and will focus on using products – both internally and externally, to see if I can grow *more* hair. To clarify – I’m not focusing on length or thickness of hair strands, but on new hair growth.PRODUCTS I’VE TRIED IN THE PAST:Nourkrin – marine extract supplements and hair serum – I used this for 2 years, and didn’t really notice a differencePRODUCTS I’M CURRENTLY USING:Biosil – silicone extract to help with hair growth – took this for 6 months – my nails are stronger, but my hair isn’t any thicker – now that I’ve finished 3 bottles, I’m going to switch to a different supplement-Omega 3-6-9 supplement – this includes cod liver oil, evening primrose oil and olive oil-Castor Oil – I apply Black Castor Oil on my roots overnight, twice a week-Coconut Oil – I apply cold-processed coconut oil on my hair and scalp for 6+ hours, once a week-Boar Bristle Brush – I brush my hair everyday with a boar bristle brush – to massage my scalp-Limited styling – I wash my hair twice a week, and use heated styling tools sparingly (maybe 10 times a year). Part of this is to protect my hair, but part of it is because I honestly *dislike* blow-drying my hair – too much effort for very little result.PRODUCTS THAT I WILL TRY IN THE FUTURE: I will not be trying them all at once! I am researching their effectiveness, and will introduce them in gradually, so that I can see what is working and what isn’t. Products with (**) are the ones I will try first. It can take up to 6 months to see a difference, especially with internal supplements.-Supplements: (Please consult with your doctor before taking any supplements – and DO NOT take them all at once, as they have overlapping ingredients.)-GNC Ultra Nourishair**-GNC Hair, Skin & Nails-MSM with vitamin C-Biotin-Hair Pills by California Naturals-Rexall Hair Skin and Nails-External Products:-Rosemary and Lavender essential oils massaged onto scalp**-Salt massaged into damp scalp, left on for 5 minutes before shampoo-NioxinTriaxonTechniques:-Shampooing my hair more frequently. I thought I was protecting my hair by only washing it twice a week, but in some cases, toxins can build up on the scalp – which inhibits hair growth.-Daily scalp massage**Do you have any products or tips that have worked for you? Please leave me a comment, and I’ll add it to this list!
