Hello! I am Alanna. I am 27 years old from Maine, with two puppies. I enjoy being active and living a healthy lifestyle. I enjoy going on hikes with my partner and our two dogs. We explore new places around the state of Maine. I work in the community health field and love contributing to the overall health of my community.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE TEXTURE OF YOUR HAIR?
I have medium elasticity, density type, and texture. I have low porosity hair – my hair feels dry and does not retain much moisture, but my scalp is quite oily.
HOW DID YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR BEFORE THE INTRODUCTION OF THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS?
I had little education on how to care for my hair. I would wash my hair every day. Any oil I would use on my ends would weigh down my hair, whether it be drug store products or high end. I would use heat on my hair almost every day. When I entered my adult years, I decided to dye my hair blonde, which did not help my hair. I started to look into how to care for my hair after dying it, so I read about DIY hair treatments and scalp treatments from various YouTube creators.
WHAT MADE YOU SEEK OUT THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS? HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE COMPANY?
I heard of the company through the YouTube creators I followed.
WHAT SETS THE INNATE LIFE APART FROM OTHER COMPANIES IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY?
These are the first products that have actually worked on my hair. With the products being natural and cruelty free, I have always loved investing in them.
WHAT IS YOUR HAIRCARE ROUTINE NOW?
Living in Maine, we have very cold winter months and very warm summer months. With the change of season, my hair has different needs.
In the summer I use the Rosemary Scalp Treatment once a week. I massage the oil into my hair for 5 to 10 minutes and then leave it in my hair for multiple hours, sometimes I sleep with it overnight. The Shampoo + Conditioner (discontinued) is the best I have ever used! After washing my hair, I let my hair air dry and use the Neroli Hair Primer and Rose Hair Elixir.
I like using the thicker products in the winter/colder months. I use the Problematic Scalp Treatment again once a week. The Shampoo + Conditioner (discontinued), Neroli Hair Primer, the Leave-in Conditioner which helps my hair with retaining moisture, and Rose Hair Elixir. I wash my hair every 2 to 3 days depending on my schedule. Each wash day I love having a hair mask.
I have created a capillary schedule and each mask is focused on hydration, nutrition, and reconstruction. With low porosity hair, my main focus is hydration. I let my hair air dry after washing my hair. I only use heat if I have an event. I try to use heatless styles whenever I can, especially protective hairstyles (braids and buns).
HOW DID YOU SEE YOUR HAIR CHANGE AFTER USING THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS?
Absolutely with the Rose Hair Elixir. My ends are always dry and this makes them nice and hydrated.
WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCT AND WHY?
I love the Problematic Scalp Treatment. In the winter months, my scalp gets quite dry. This has always helped whenever that has happened.
WHO WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THESE PRODUCTS TO?
I recommend these products to everyone! Anyone who has asked me about my hair, I share these products.
HOW DOES THE INNATE LIFE FIT INTO A LIFESTYLE COMMITTED TO HEALTH + WELLNESS?
By providing products that embrace my hair’s natural state, The Innate Life products have given me confidence.
