If you are an IG abuser who has a thing for all things Kim K. like myself, than you have seen her and hundreds (literally hundreds) of celebrities and social butterflies drinking the Hair Infinity cool aid. This past year the pink bottle has constantly popped up on my feed everytime I want to troll my favorites. At first I accepted the fact that it was just a well thought out PR stunt, but after the passing of my grandmother and favorite uncle my hair started to fall out in clumps due to stress and mourning. My once full bodied mane was showing up on my shower floor and bed sheets. I avoided heat, moisturized, ritual deep condition sessions and sleep with a satin scarf and pillows but still my hair thinned over time and now that 2015 approaches things look grim in the volume department.
I caved in and decided to visit the site and order a batch, and that is where reality struck. A single pink plastic bottle full of thick hair hopes and dreams is $24! My money saving habits kicked in and I decided to do a little research on what Hair Infinity really can do. Most of the reviews were negative revealing that many people suffered extreme breakouts, had double charges from the company, and soon as they stopped taking the product they had extreme breakage. I was ready to just accept defeat until I discovered the active ingredient in Hair Infinity is simply….Biotin .

What’s Biotin? Biotin acts as a coenzyme in several metabolic reactions. Biotin is vital to cell proliferation, which is why it is a valuable tool in hair growth. When ingested, biotin reacts with cell enzymes and plays a vital part in producing amino acids, which are the building blocks of protein. Hair itself consists of keratin, which is a form of protein.
Biotin can be purchased at your local grocery store and drug store for as little as $8 but Hair Infinity is geared to convince us pop culture addicts that you have to shell out tons of money for celebrity idol hair. I then geared my research on how biotin effects the body and it has been proven to cause breakouts if taken in high dosages and with out plenty of water. I also found out that Fish Oil works well with Biotin to cut down the chance of breakouts and promotes healthy skin and nail growth. I purchased my Fish oil and Biotin both from my local Walgreens on sale for around $14 (Suck on that Hair Infinity) and though I am fearful of breakouts I’m hoping for a positive out come.
I will be starting my journey with:
Biotin 5,000 MCG X every other day
Fish Oils 1,000 X Once a Day
100 (or more) Ounces of water a day
and will be documenting my growth in a post at the end of November.
Weather this method works or not the moral of this story is… Don’t just jump on the band wagon because you see a celebrated face holding it in a photo on a social network. Not a single one of them will give you a negative or realistic review of the product because i’m sure thew fine print behind their checks prevents them from doing so. Stay tuned for a truthful review, from a regular
