Here Are 6 Products Cassandra Uses for Hair Growth

When it comes to hair growth and hair density, the best thing is  talk to a professional or a physician. That way, you can see if you are nutrient or vitamin-deficient, You can also talk to an endocrinologist and check on your thyroid. But apart from these issues, there are some at-home things you can do at home. Here are a few things Cassandra uses. 




Nutrafol Women's Vegan Hair Growth  

This is a nutraceutical or “a supplement.” This contains a whole bunch of vitamins and extracts that help the body from the inside out. In addition to regular food and nutrients, this supports your body so it can produce hair, skin, and nails. Cassandra takes four in the morning, and they don’t even have a bad taste.

This nutraceutical includes vitamins A, C, D, E, K2, B12, iodine, zinc, and selenium. There is also algae. What Cassandra loves about these supplements is that they actually have a wide array of vitamins, not just biotin. Everyone loves biotin for hair and nails, but there’s not a lot of evidence to support that it works in supplements. Instead, these include a wider breadth of supplements like chlorella, pea sprout, L-cysteine, lysine, beetroot powder, bacillus substilla, and bamboo root extract. 

There’s also hyaluronic acid, silica, saw palmetto, a CO2 extract, fatty acids, dragonhead flowers, and liposomal curcumin.

Liposomes are tiny pockets of fat that help deliver the supplement to your body. In turn, your body can absorb it better. Furthermore, curcumin is amazing. It’s actually found in turmeric which decreases inflammation, a reaction that can significantly impact hair growth. 

This supplement also contains adaptogens like ashwagandha. Theoretically, adaptogens like ashwagandha work by interacting with the body’s central nervous system. Adaptogens help the body adapt to stress and respond better to stressful situations. 




Minimalist Maleic Bond Repair Complex 05% Hair Mask 

This helps to strengthen the hair but not from the root. It simply strengthens the hair shaft so it doesn’t break or split as quickly. Cassandra has always struggled with split ends because her hair is naturally curly. Sometimes, her hair splits in the middle, and the hair breaks off. 

This doesn’t have much to do with growth, but preventing this can make the hair look healthier. Cassandra loves this hair mask. It’s creamy, inexpensive, and lightweight. It works for Cassandra’s hair when it’s curled or when it’s styled. It’s not a leave-in. You put it on and rinse it off. It penetrates the cuticle and prevents breakage through hydration.

The malic and amino acids are helpful as well. Cassandra doesn’t use this every day because it's a protein treatment. If you have low porosity hair, it can cause the hair to be brittle. But, even though Cassandra's hair has lower porosity, this product works wonderfully.


What is hair porosity?

Determined by genetics or the occurrence of hair damage, hair porosity is how close your cuticles are. The cuticle is the protective layer of the hair. Like shingles on a roof, they overlap each other and cover the cortex, the thickest layer of the hair. The cortex contains fibrous proteins and the pigment of your hair. For hair to be hydrated and healthy, water, oils, and other moisturizing products must pass through the cuticle so they can reach the cortex.

If you have high porosity hair, water, and oils are easily absorbed, but it’s difficult for your hair to retain moisture. This can cause dryness and frizziness. 


Scalp stimulation

There’s no way to fundamentally change your natural hair porosity, but you can increase your hair density, Your hair density is the number of strands of hair growing out of each square inch of your scalp. Cassandra uses the following scalp stimulating products for hair density.
