I've had long hair up until I was 7 years old, then my mother decided to give me a really short haircut (she took me to a hairdresser, but still). I have naturally wavy/frizzy hair, so just image how I must have looked like in the early 90s.
It was a pain to grow long again.
Then in my early 20s I used to have hair extensions glued in. I also blow dried it at the hairdresser religiously every week. Add this to my monthly hair dye, and you can correctly assume how the state of my hair was. I had to cut it/trim it regularly.
About 2 years ago now I cut off my back layers, so my hair is now one length. Doing this has made my hair stronger than it was before. I then re-started the painful process of growing it again.
A couple of months ago I bought Perfectil vitamins to give my hair the boost it needed. They are vitamins to help maintain healthy skin, hair and nails.
This is what it says on the box:
"Perfectil contains essential nutrients, specially formulated for utilisation by the lower dermal layer of the skin, and hair follicles. The nail bed also requires a regular supply of nutrients for growth. Take Perfectil because you new skin, hair & nails are really nourished from the inside."
I used to take one of these everyday after lunch. At first, I used to take them with my dinner but they gave me stomach ache, but if you take them with a large meal and early in the evening you should be ok. I normally have dinner between 9-10pm so most probably that's the reason why they gave me stomach ache.
I've seen a noticeable difference from the moment I've started taking them. My hair has never been as long as it is at the moment and my nails are stronger than before (I notice this when I take off my nail extensions).
They don't contain: artificial colours, preservatives, gluten, salt or yeast, and it is not tested on animals.
I bought mine over the counter for Euro 9.50 (there's no need for a prescription). I'm not saying that your hair will miraculously grow longer overnight, but I saw a difference in mine.
Always check with your doctor or pharmacist before taking any pills/medication.
