Fine thinning hair? Not anymore with this treatment
Fine thinning hair to thicker, fuller and longer hair 1 year later
April 6, 2017, my son passed away leaving me to find more myself. The loss was so sad that I felt like I didn’t want to drag myself out of bed. I used to look at myself in the mirror talking to that “self” saying, “you need to get up, you need to move forward today and look your best.” I knew that I had never had great hair at any point in my life. I normally would pull it back into a pony tail that made it look thicker. I did have it cut every 6 months because the ends were straggly.
During a year that I could remember, my hair was being cut and the stylist that was cutting my hair said, “Kimberly, you don’t have any hair in the middle of the back of your head.” Of course I was stunned or couldn’t imagine my hair being that short. Unfortunately, it was true, my hair had broken off from the constant strain of being pony tailed at the same spot for 20 years. Needless to say, I cut it off shorter to make it look better. I still hadn’t learned my lesson after all of those years.
My emotions were all over the place between happy and sad or just bursting into tears from the loss I was feeling. I couldn’t think straight, wasn’t eating right and certainly hadn’t been getting enough sleep over the years but the previous two years before my son’s passing wasn’t the epitome of healthy eating. My hair was not that important to me at that time.
After he passed in April, the following months were a struggle to function. My body was tired and sleepy. I had always taken vitamins for my fine thin hair but knew that I needed to change my hair behaviors. Since being in the beauty industry, the opportunities to have hair extensions installed to give my hair length and fullness immediately but didn’t want to stress my hair at the scalp since it was just starting to grow back but still had hair loss and didn’t think it was strong enough to hold the attachment at the scalp and the weight of the hair. I nixed that idea although it is good for others that option didn’t seem feasible to me at the time.
One day I was working in the salon when this sales representative came in offering me samples of a hair growing shampoo. I agreed to try the treatment with lots of skepticism about “another” product that is supposed to grow hair. I knew that I always recommended Biotin 1 – 3x per day but that was a slow solution and was always on the look out for new products to help my clients. Being used to always doing things for others, this was my norm vs how do I take care of myself. That was foreign thinking for me just to think about my own fine thin hair.
After using the treatment and conditioner for 1 month, I saw a huge difference. My hair wasn’t falling out any longer, it felt thicker and I started to get compliments on how shiny my hair was in the light. I never received compliments like I was receiving multiple times per week. The Boost products were part of the routine to give my hair volume and thickness. I had used these products for over a year and saw my hair turn into hair that I didn’t know I had.
1 year later longer, thicker and fuller
As you can see from the before and after photos above, the photo that shows my hair being held out has literally grown 12″ looking thicker and fuller while the ends of the hair are still thin from a year ago. I stopped pony tailing my hair as much. I didn’t put it in a pony tail at night which causes stress on the hair from being in the same spot. I stopped combing my hair from the scalp out but instead combed it with a large tooth comb from the ends up. If you go to FB: Indulge Salon, you will see a few of my hair videos that show how to comb your hair properly.

I didn’t realize the damage that I had been doing for so many YEARS that I think about the result of pony tailing to much or not caring for me the way that I could have.
