See my followup video that answers some of the persistent questions I was asked due in this video:
Hiya Good People!!!
In this video, I get straight to the point, no music and no frills because:
I am so proud to announce I have officially reached waist length after 4 years of being natural!!!
Circumstances I believe contributed to it's length:
-Eating less processed foods, increasing intake of raw vegetables, drinking more water, drinking green smoothies/juices, decreasing intake of animal products, eating more healthy fats, Bee Pollen
-Exercising- I am so hyper!
-Low maintenance styles, low hair manipulation
-Staying consistent with the hair products that work for my hair and curbing 'product junkyism'
Circumstances I don't believe contributed to hair growth:
-Strictly genetics: I am the only one in my family with waist length hair. I do believe genetics play a role in everything about you, but I don't believe it's solely responsible for hair growth
-Vitamins- Many vitamins (prescribed and non-prescribed) are not as concentrated as they initially appear. For example, just because the label says '1,250mg of calcium' doesn't mean you will get that amount. Read this:
'Amount of calcium
Elemental calcium is key because it's the actual amount of calcium in the supplement. It's what your body absorbs for bone growth and other health benefits. The Supplement Facts label on calcium supplements is helpful in determining how much calcium is in one serving. As an example, calcium carbonate is 40 percent elemental calcium, so 1,250 milligrams (mg) of calcium carbonate contains 500 mg of elemental calcium. Be sure to note the serving size (number of tablets) when determining how much calcium is in one serving. ' -mayoclinic.com
