I have been a terrible for constantly making big hair color changes, and have found that the Ojon products from sephora do a lot for making my hair stronger and softer. The Ojon deep conditioner saved my hair when I went from died chocolate brown to bleached platinum …

Maybe pre-natal vitamins would help. Sounds like you have my type of hair, super thick (and sometimes a pain…lol), but I’ve heard from friends that pre-natals make your nails & hair grow really well.

My original color is a mid-tone ashy brown … it is pretty mousy, and I am blessed to be able to pull off almost any color, I have been deep chocolate brown, to bleached platinum, various reds, and pretty much anywhere in between … but it is hard on the hair … hence my Ojon devotion – Sephora has sample packs with shampoo, conditioner, deep treatment, and a smoothing cream … AWESOME!

My hairstylist started me off on some new shampoo and conditioner last month because my hair looked like crap and there has been such a HUGE difference in only three weeks. It’s called Profound Beauty, you can see their products on profoundbeauty.com I think their products are only sold in select salons and the product that is sold to you is given to you depending on your hair history and what all is going on. For example, I have  very dry scalp, very dry hair, it was starting to fall out a little…and now…it couldn’t look any healthier. Everyone keeps asking what I’ve done. The products are a bit pricey…but you don’t use it everyday, you’re supposed to wash your hair every other day and just use a small amount of it. I’ve done the whole prenatal vitamin and other vitamins that arer supposed to work and while they did work for some reason I had also had side effects so I stay away from them. Good luck!

Oh no, sorry to hear that! i was going to ditto a prenatal vitamin, also the use of a protein shampoo occassionally. You could always get some extensions if it’s not as full as you like–my SIL did that and it looked great!

I second Ojon products. I use the deep conditioner a lot too. It’s like a solid and you rub some of it between your hands and it turns to oil and you put it in your hair.

I also use Phyto products. They have a vitamin supplement that I really like. It seems to help my hair and nails stay super healthy. You can find their Phyto and Ojon products at Sephora or Ulta stores/websites.

Oh, I also have thyroid problems so I know where you are coming from.

Pre-natal vitamins are more than just folic acid, I think. The folic acid is to ensure that the spinal cord develops properly, which occurs during the first three weeks, I think, which is why doctors suggest that women take it even if they aren’t planning a pregnancy. Because the folic acid is crucial and you’re less likely to know that you’re pregnant in the first month, some women take it regularly. I know that eating a lot of fish helps my hair grow, just personally.

I second the Biotin suggestion, its a vitamin you can find in any drugstore, walmart, etc. it’ll also help strengthen nails or so I’ve heard.
