21.1 Is Baby Making My Hair Thicker?

Between the bronchitis and the heat this weekend, there was no way I could keep that weave in my hair! I was so over it and ripped that thing out my head faster than a speeding bullet. It was nice not to have to deal with my hair for a little bit, but I really missed my hair. After it was all said and done, my hair appeared thicker than normal, and I was so excited! While I've been able to achieve a decent amount of length since really learning how to take care of my hair - I've never been able to gain anything thickness - and everybody knows I llloooovvveeee big hair! It finally dawned on me that it may be a result of my pregnancy - thank you prenatal vitamins!

Although I was thinking of making a trip to Carols Daughter, while I was in Target I checked out the natural hair section (isn't it amazing that they have that) and decided to check out Shea Moisture. I've been hearing about it in the natural community and it also helped that the products were only around $9.99 each - I purchased a curly enhancing shampoo and a moisturizer. In addition, I finally picked up a bottle of Jane Carter, because I think it's a sin to have never tried any of her products before. I haven't been able to use everything as yet - but what I have used has been magical to say the least. I'm finally starting to get the look and feel that I want from my hair. I'm definitely learning that they key to this whole thing are the products we choose to use.


I'm not gonna lie, I had to brush up on my natural hair knowledge over the weekend. It's been quite a while since I've given my hair the attention that it needs.

As far as products go, I'm trying to keep it as organic and/natural as possible so that I don't treat one problem and create another. Since dryness is one of my issues I'm making sure to stay away from products with sulfates and such. Learning ingredients has been made it easier for me to choose products, although it's more time consuming because I will read the back of every product before making a decision, lol.

In any event, once I test out everything and have used the products a couple times, I'll be back with a full review. In the meantime, I'm super happy with my expanding fro!

Happy first day of summer!

I have been using and love that Jane Carter curl leave in!! I'm not sure if it's the same thing you have but it looks like the same (leave in) idea :)

It's definitely the prenatals! Did you notice a difference in your nails as well? I was thinking of going on the prenatals just for the hair/nails benefits LOL.

Love Shea's products!

XOXO

@Alexia: I'm assuming its the same one, how do you like it?

@Miss Esspi: I haven't noticed a difference in my nails at this point which is ok because they've always grown fast and thick - but I'm super excited about my hair!

I love Shea Moisture products! And I'm even more in love with the price!

And yes, it's the baby making your hair thicker since your hair doesn't shed during pregnancy. But keep in mind, it will make up for lost time after pregnancy. Mine is shedding now (and getting tangled in my hair), but I welcome it because my hair is a little too dense right now.
