When it comes to hair, African women are often met with various challenges and issues with their natural hair. Our hair is quite coarse and difficult to style. We also have the issue of thinning and stunted growth which deters versatile styling. Due to coarseness of our hair, a majority of black women go through various chemical processes to soften and lengthen our hair which often leads to further issues such as dryness and breakage (such a lose-lose situation). Most times, the way out of these predicaments is to resort to braiding (which takes up all your day plus the stress of having it take out), wearing weave/wigs (which has its own set of issues ), wearing low cut or the recent trend of wigging it out.
The latest trend is the natural hair craze. It’s really inspiring to see many leading Nollywood actresses undergo the natural hair journey. When the red carpet come calling, these stars have not been shy about rocking their natural hair and making it a major part of their fashion statement. Celebrities such as Omoni Oboli, Nse Ikpe-Etim, Uche Jumbo-Rodriguez and Chioma Okpotha have all achieved good length over time, enough to achieve some versatile styles. On the other hand, others who have not been so fortunate to achieve good length or just starting out have resorted to taking hair vitamin like Hairfinity and even out right endorse the product (I am smelling sponsorship). Nollywood beauties Dakore Egbuson-Akande, Annie Idibia and Funke Akindele have all endorsed Hairfinity within two weeks of starting on the vitamin with claims of seeing results – healthier/fuller edges.
Dakore who has not been shy about losing so much hair post pregnancy took to her IG page to announce her hair goals 2 months ago – “I have a confession. After I gave birth to my 2nd angel I experienced hair loss which is pretty normal (and she has a glorious head of hair) but Mummy needs her hair back! Lol! ?I’ve used every oil known to man…castor, coconut, shea, almond but no #hairjoy…I’ve been hearing a lot of great things about #Hairfinityvitamins so starting today I’m going to try it…I have 2 bottles to giveaway so who’s with me? I want my hair to be as massive as this little girl on my t-shirt o!!!”
During her 2-weeks hair update, Dakore declared “so I’ve been using #hairfinityvitamins for 2weeks now and I can honestly see more fullness especially on my precious edges! Yay!” She went on to announce two winners for her 2-bottles give-away.
Annie Idibia did a similar update two weeks later and interestingly, while researching and putting this article together, we noticed a new 2-month update from Annie which reads:
“It’s been over 2 months on my @hairfinityng journey and this product has surpassed all my HAIRspectations. My hair is fuller, longer and healthier. Taking care of my hair is now a certified walk in the park. ????.. Remember ladies #AWoman‘sHairIsHerCrowningGlory #Hairfinity.” To be honest, from the photo which is part of the gallery above, it does appear she achieved a good inch in length and it does look fuller!
Funke, who is yet to reveal her hair has also claimed to see results and tips on drinking a lot of water, fruits and vegetables while on the vitamin.
I am not endorsing any vitamins, however if you’re looking to start on the natural hair journey, this bunch can serve as inspiration. I have also provided 2 short videos below from youtube sensations and twin sisters glamtwinz334 who are hair/beauty experts in their own right and have had good success with achieving healthier hair and length from hairfinity and experimenting with various hair regimen/products. Looking at their hair which is all natural, I think they’re in a good position to offer their opinion on the supplement and provide other healthy hair tips:
