When I first began my natural journey, I was all about wanting long hair, and just that. As I did more research and began learning more about my hair, my only concern now is having healthy hair. February made it a year that I took the plunge and did the "Big Chop". Now, that my hair is fully healthy and thriving, I decided to try hair growth pills. Now I've always been skeptical about hair growth pills because, yes, you can see results with growth but I always had the question "what does it do to you internally?". 

I discovered Eu Natural Vibrance Pure Hair Vitamins for Hair Growth and it didn't catch my eyes until I did my research, and I found that this are all natural. When I say all natural, I mean, these are vegetarian capsules that are filled with vitamins, minerals, and herbs. Now, there is a difference between pills and capsules. These vitamins are capsules and they are fillers and binders free, which is a big sigh of relief.  What's even better, Eu Natural supports money back guarantee and these hair Vitamins are a 30 days supply.
 

I began taking the vitamins yesterday. I take two capsules before a meal with 20 ounces of water, the instructions says 8 ounces but I usually just drink a full 20 oz. So far, It's normal. I won't see any real results until the end of the month, in which I will up date you guys and give you a full report.  

Before I started yesterday I did measure my hair, I did a trim before I started. The back is 5.5", the left and right side is 6", the middle is 6.2 inches and the front is 5".  Wish me luck!

I'm always on the look out for new hair care products so when I got the opportunity to review a few products from Pura d'or, I was excited!

Pura d'or is an organic hair and body care company. Their products are strictly grown from trees and not in the labs, they also do not test on animals. I must say that I've never really tried organic hair products... until now. Their most popular products are the Argan Oil Premium Shampoo, the Argan Oil Premium Organic Conditoner and their Argan Oil. Pura d'or is rated #1 on Amazon for the Shampoo and Conditioner.

The Pura d'or Argan Oil Premium Organic Conditioner is smooth, a thick consistency and very easy to disperse through hair. I have thick course hair, so I was worried if I would have to use a lot of product like I always do, so my hair can be fully covered but with this conditioner it was easy. This conditioner is Lavender Vanilla scented, and let me tell you, the scent is intoxicating. The hair didn't really shine after using this but it was more manageable. When I read the ingredients label, I was shocked that it was so little ingredients and they were all organic and natural.

The Pura d'or Premium Organic Shampoo is definitely one of a kind. This shampoo is not a regular shampoo, it has hair loss prevention properties. The Premium Organic Shampoo contains 12 DHT Blockers which can stop premature hair loss, thinning hair, receding hair lines and excessive shedding. I have naturally thick hair and I do not suffer from thin hair or premature hair loss and even a receding hair line but my hair can shed a tad bit too much for my liking. When I used this shampoo I noticed that my shedding reduce drastically which made me very happy. It also lathers very well , which I like because I hate it when a shampoo has low lather.

Last but not least, the Pura d'or Argan Oil. I have a collection of Argan Oils and some are better than the others. I used this Argan in my Hot Oil Treatment along with some other oils and I was happy with the results, I had softer shinier hair. I also used this oil on my face and it reduced a little bump I had, which amazed me because some oils tend too break out my face. It also moisturizes with out giving a greasy appearance. This is going to be my new holy grail product.

There are times when I don't want to use a lot of products to create a look, so when I found that the Paula Dorf Perfect Color stick is a multi-tasker, I was excited to try it.

The company describes the Perfect Color stick as a "versatile multi-tasker performs triple results: for eyes, lips and cheeks. Light and creamy in flattering shades. Convenient and portable for on the go application."

I got the Perfect Color in Ecstasy and I must agree that the formula is very creamy, easy to apply and blend. At first I was taken back by the color because as a WOC some shades are unflattering on darker skin tones, so when I tried it, I loved it. I even decided to try it on my friend Ayesha from XOEesh  and it came out beautifully on her.

Ecstasy is subtle pink color with slight shimmer, not glittery, which I love. Paula Dorf Perfect Color can be used not only as a blush but as a eyeshadow and lip color as well. For my women who are on the go and need that product that can be used all over, Perfect Color is perfect for you. Perfect Color comes in 5 different shades that can compliment any skin tone. Use ECSTASY at the checkout to receive a free gift.
