My hair has been hit hard post-baby this time around. I have had lots of breakage and shedding and although I think my hair is starting to come back, I can't be certain yet. I went in to the hair salon for a trim yesterday and my hairdresser suggested that I do two things: 1) Switch to a cream formula heat protectant and 2) Start taking biotin.
I have been using a Nexxus spray on heat protectant because I think I get more coverage by using that delivery method. Maybe it's not working though, since my hair looked dry to the hairdresser? I ordered Alterna's Caviar CC Cream for Hair 10-in-1 Complete Correction yesterday so we will see what that does for me. Hopefully something since it was $25!
Biotin, which is vitamin B7, is something I have read about before and I have been on the fence about it since I know some people can have adverse reactions to too much of it. Too much biotin can lead to acne, an increased risk of miscarriage and can interfere with anti-cholesterol medication. Eek.
