I promised an update on my journey with African Hair Accel. My first thoughts of these hair vitamins are still the same. I must admit, I have not been consistent with taking three pills per day. The maximum has been two. The reason for this is my eating schedule has been off. I’m going to get it back on track (don’t worry). I currently have my hair in Senegalese Twists as a protective style. Therefore, I won’t be able to give my final update until after I take them out. However, I wanted to give you a brief update before my final update.
My hair is relaxed with permanent color on it, which has grown out to the ends. I have been experiencing breakage and dryness. I moisturized my hair daily and kept it rolled up in hair rollers to keep me from having to style it daily. It worked out well, I was able to avoid heat styling and save time on my hair in the morning. Despite the fact I was moisturizing before rolling my hair, my hair was still dry from the color. Dryness equals breakage. I deep condition every week and for some strange reason my hair just wasn’t having it (I switched up my products, review coming soon). I put the Senegalese Twists in my hair once more, along with the fact I love them so much, to protect my hair from further breakage and to help with growth.
Due to the breakage on the ends of my hair, it appeared that my hair had gotten shorter than my starting length on the pills. I’m not altogether sure what was going taking place, but my hair just wasn’t cooperating for some reason. I will know for sure once I take my hair out of these twists whether or not my hair was just being resistant to the vitamins or simply shorter from breakage. I will note, my roots did appear thicker because I just kept thinking my relaxer retouch went south. Therefore, I really can’t say for sure the vitamins aren’t working.
I experienced a few breakouts on my face, but they weren’t excessive or too bad to handle. I was able to manage them effectively. The key to keeping the breakouts under control is drinking plenty of water.
Below is a picture of my starting point and my hair length before I decided to twist up my hair.
This journey is still in progress, I will let you know what my end results are. I will say this, my hair does look thicker in the pic on the right. Check back soon for more updates!
Peace and Blessings.
