She is currently a stay-at-home mom of two girls who lives in the beautiful city of Brussels. Nele is passionate about music and dance. In her spare time, she is able to rekindle her passion and take up ballet classes. She finds it challenging but loves it!
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE TEXTURE OF YOUR HAIR?
"Becoming a mom made me realize how important it is to use as many natural products as possible. Food-wise and beauty-wise."
Nele describes her hair as naturally wavy and prone to frizz especially when the weather is humid. It also gets oily very easily, but since washing it less, this is not a problem anymore. A hairdresser once told her she has a lot but very fine hair. After giving birth to her second daughter 6 months ago, she began to experience severe hair loss and scalp irritation. After this problem persisted she began to take matters into her own hands and find a solution through making the switch to natural. She quickly began to realize the importance of natural and the toll chemical-based products take on the body.
WHAT MADE YOU SEEK OUT THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS? HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE COMPANY?
After having my second daughter six months ago I started suffering from a lot of hair loss. Postpartum hair loss is normal, but in my case, it was very severe and I started suffering from a very itchy scalp as well. After checking some profiles on Instagram, I came across Mariana’s profile (@hairbyolivemarri
) and after reaching out to her, she advised to use the Scalp Treatment for Problematic Scalp
WHAT SETS THE INNATE LIFE APART FROM OTHER COMPANIES IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY?
I love the fact that it is a company created by women, because who else can better understand our hair? They stay true to their philosophy of staying small and using the best natural products instead of focusing on the profits of selling in mass quantities.
WHAT IS YOUR HAIRCARE ROUTINE NOW?
I wash my hair about every three days. Before my washing days, I use the Scalp Treatment
and usually leave it on overnight. Once a week, I also use the Herbal Hair Mask
in combination with the Scalp Treatment
. The Rose Hair Elixir
is used every day on my ends before putting my hair in a bun. When leaving my hair down, I put one or two drops in my entire hair to fight off the frizz.
HOW DID YOU SEE YOUR HAIR CHANGE AFTER USING THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS?
After using the Scalp Treatment
a few times, I noticed the itchiness from my scalp disappeared and my hair didn’t fall out as much. After using the products for a little over 2 months now, I have normal hair loss, no itchy scalp and my hair is a lot fuller.
WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCT AND WHY?
If I need to pick one, it is the Scalp Treatment
, without a doubt. I am convinced it stopped my severe hair loss. I would recommend these products to everyone suffering from hair loss or to everyone just seeking healthy hair. Not only healthy-looking but really healthy from the roots down.
HOW DOES THE INNATE LIFE FIT INTO A LIFESTYLE COMMITTED TO HEALTH + WELLNESS?
Since The Innate Life products are all-natural and cruelty-free products, they fit in just perfectly in any lifestyle. We often forget that there are a lot of damaging ingredients in beauty products and I just don’t see a reason why we should continue to damage our health.Read more real stories here!
