It Works 90 Day Challenge

Last week I wrote about me switching exclusively to Morroco Method products and mentioned that I'm taking the 90 day It Works: Hair, Skin, Nail challenge. I had never heard about It Works: Hair, Skin, Nails until just a few weeks ago.

My friend offered the 90 day challenge on Facebook and it came through my feed. I ignored it for a while. Then just last week I decided I'd try it. Why? Because I have always wanted long hair (smile). My hair has never-ever grown longer than how it is right now. NEVER, sorry, not yelling, just getting my point across. Actually in this post if you scroll down to the Bella picture it is a bit longer BUT that's about as long as it's gotten (and there might be a coconut oil thing going on helping my hair to elongate).
Day 1 picture. There is a little dot on my shirt. This is the length of my hair when I'm holding it forward)
I am paying $33 for each container for the next three months plus another almost $4 to ship. Now that's a lot for me but I have another reason for taking the challenge that I'm not going to share just yet.

I want this to be an honest review for you all. After accepting the 90 day challenge I looked up reviews on It Works: HSN and was surprised to see a lot of mixed reviews. Some stating that only reps are giving reviews and only positive ones. I'm here to say I'm not a distributor. I am not getting Hair, Skin, Nails for free, and I don't get a percentage of sales or anything like that.

Now for my background. I always think it's a good idea to know a little bit about the person like what are they eating, using on their hair, and so forth.

Diet: I've been living a fairly healthy lifestyle for almost four years now. I live a low carb lifestyle. I try to stay away from processed foods, msg, and dyes.

Hair: I think it's been more than 6 years now that I haven't used regular drugstore/Target/Walmart shampoos. I went no poo than started making my own using raw honey, homemade rosemary shampoos, etc.

I also don't use mousse, hair spray, or gel (only Morrocco Method gel). Instead I use
  •  coconut oil
  • avocado oil
  • aloe vera gel
  • essential oils
  • and so forth
So as you can see I don't use a lot of chemicals in my hair.
My hair has only a little bit of MM Blood of the Dragon Gel. No heavy products weighing it down.
A few years ago I found Morrocco Method and used their products then stopped because it's expensive. I recently started using all MM products because of a scalp issue. 

Almost three weeks ago I used the Zen Detox from MM and am absolutely amazed with it after one application. My hair is so soft, less frizzy (although still frizz), and just much more manageable. 

A MM person recommend I do the Zen Detox once a week for three weeks then monthly. This week I'll have completed the once a week for three week detox.

I have noticed since doing the Zen Detox that I am not combing/brushing out so much hair. I use a wide tooth comb in the shower and always had lots of hair in the comb. I often wondered how in the world did I still have hair. So right away I noticed less hair loss. I think part of it is because my hair is not so tangled anymore.

Health: I am not on any mediation and think I'm fairly healthy. I can always improve of course but at age 44 ~and not taking any meds is a good thing.

Brushing: again, the past three weeks I've been brushing more. Not daily like I should but at least three to four times a week using a bamboo brush. I love that my scalp is being massaged almost daily now.

Vitamins: I'm not as diligent as I should be with taking my vitamins. I take them regularly for a while then something happens and I stop. Sometimes I take some of them and other times I'm taking none for a few weeks.
I'm looking straight a head, trying not to look up or down. 
Right now I'm doing pretty good with taking (affiliate links below):

So there you have it. In a nutshell before taking It Works! Hair, Skin, Nails:
  • Zen Detox 3 applications (the 3rd one a day after taking HSN)
  • Using Morrocco Method shampoos for 3 weeks before taking HSN
  • No sudsy shampoos for over 6 years now.
  • Use natural hair care or homemade product for over 6 years.
  • Vitamins off and on
  • Diet- watch what I eat, low carb, no sugar, I stay away from a lot of wheat products
One last thing. I also read reviews where some people were saying they got acne so I'll keep you all informed with that too. Just for the record. I hardly ever get pimples. Maybe every few months one or two will pop up (like last week I had one on my chin). 

And I think that's it. So let the fun begin and we'll see if It Works! (haha, pun intended). I hope it does I really, really, would like to have my hair a few inches longer.

FYI: Pictures taken Tuesday the 21st ~2016 around noon give or take 15 minutes. I'm going to try and take pics weekly around the same time. Washing my hair using MM and not putting anything (other than a bit of Blood of the Dragon (watered down in a spritz bottle) Gel.

I'll take a few more pictures tomorrow too. Maybe a side profile (but I don't like my chin, ack) and one without my headband. I just noticed while adding the pictures that I'm wearing a headband. Yikes, do you think that's an issue?

P.S. I'll also keep a journal of how Morrocco Method is working for me.
