I’ve been contemplating this article for a long time because the topic of beauty for transgender girls and women is one that I think is both important and fascinating, and in light of the Caitlyn┬áJenner* thing, it seems appropriate. I am a strong supporter of the transgender community because, well, I’d like to think I’m a strong supporter of all communities (that don’t promote hate) – and the recent hubbub with Planet Fitness has brought the issue to the forefront for some who might not have known it existed.

As you regulars know, it’s my goal to grow my hair long. In that effort, I’ve made a rule for myself that I don’t use hair products with alcohols or sulfates. (This is surprisingly difficult. If you don’t believe me, start reading your ingredients lists.)
I was delighted to discover JustNatural, a brand whose products are carefully formulated using natural and organic ingredients that are designed to be more effective than other mass-produced commercial products. Plus, they have a whole line of “Grow New Hair” products, and on all the ones whose ingredients I read, not ONE has alcohol or sulfates. Continue reading “Growing My Hair Out With JustNatural” ╗
As you may have recently read, I’m trying to grow my hair long. What better time to try out some goodies from a brand focused on hair growth like Dr. Miracles?
I experimented with the brand’s Intensive Spot Serum, intended to help with split ends, slow growth and breakage. The serum comes in a glass bottle with an eyedropper applicator, just like the ones for your skin. The texture is also similar to skincare serums, but the scent is a milder version of Dr. Miracle’s signature minty smell.
The “Feel It Formula” tingle the company is famous for is present, but not as intense as with some of their other products – which I’m actually happy about. The combination of the peppermint oil’s cooling effect and the slight itch tend to remind me of putting cold aloe vera on a sunburn.
If you’re among the beauty-concerned, you’ve probably heard claims of the miracle shampoo and conditioner Mane and Tail. Being in the beauty business, I have constant conversation on the topic, and time and time again people have said to me, “If you want your hair to grow fast, use Mane & Tail!” I jump for anything that involves speedy hair growth, so I tried it as soon as I could get my hands on it.
“Isn’t that for horses?” you may be asking yourself. The answer is yes, some people do use Mane & Tail for horses and that was its original use. However, that doesn’t mean it contains any magical, scary horse genes. You won’t start neighing if you use it, trust me – we share many product favorites with horses, including hairbrushes, carrots and sugar cubes.

Hair loss in men is related to the production of di-hydrotestrone, a hormone that cuts off vital nutrients to your hair. It is produced in the testes, prostate, and adrenal glands. This means you lose hair because it becomes dry and brittle so it falls out and breaks when combing. The use of all natural DHT Blocker supplements like Folliform and a good diet can help restore or slow down the hair loss process. A diet that supports hair growth with this supplement leads to success.
You’re an older man that has lost some hair. You know that being bald will not lead to a role in the movies or a TV series. In fact, it makes it harder to compete with the younger men at work. You know that often you’re passed over for promotions because you don’t look as good as someone with a full head of hair. If you’re a single older man that is bald, your friends with hair often beat you out when you go to the nightclub or sporting events looking to meet women. You end up sitting at the table alone while they’re out on the dance floor or leaving to go home with someone.
