I am a healthcare professional! Around early/mid-2020 post-covid, I experienced chronic post-viral telogen effluvium and lost lots of hair as a result. I became very depressed about my hair loss and became determined to get my hair back. After trying minoxidil many times, I was unable to use it as I experienced adverse side effects. I learned about The Innate Life products on Instagram and was intrigued to try them! I am an e-book author, artist, traveler, and Etsy shop owner. Long hair care is my hobby and something I am pretty passionate about. I also love cottage core and rabbits.
HOW WOULD YOU DESCRIBE THE TEXTURE OF YOUR HAIR?
My hair is a medium texture and it is low density as a result of so much post-viral hair loss.
HOW DID YOU TAKE CARE OF YOUR HAIR BEFORE THE INTRODUCTION OF THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS?
Before, I used to not use any hair products whatsoever, other than failed attempts at Rogaine. I used to bleach my hair every 2 months, used blow dryers and hot tools, and used Pantene shampoo. Let’s just say I knew NOTHING about hair care at that time.
WHAT MADE YOU SEEK OUT THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS? HOW DID YOU HEAR ABOUT THE COMPANY?
I saw many friends on Instagram getting good results from The Innate Life products. I also saw other peoples' Before and After testimonials and I became intrigued to try it for myself!
WHAT SETS THE INNATE LIFE APART FROM OTHER COMPANIES IN THE BEAUTY INDUSTRY?
What sets The Innate Life apart from other companies is the large number of hair growth boosting natural herbs + ingredients jam-packed into a product. Some other companies just have a small amount of hair growth boosting ingredients. The Innate Life has the most ingredients, much of which are Ayurvedic. All of the ingredients are natural. They also recently came out with a Derma Roller which I have not seen too many other companies offer.
WHAT IS YOUR HAIRCARE ROUTINE NOW?
I currently wash my hair once a week. The night before a wash, I use The Innate Life Rosemary Scalp Treatment on my scalp overnight (massaged in). I wash it out in the morning with cool water. I have The Innate Life Scalp Treatment for Normal Scalp which I use most days in the morning, on my right side temple, as that was a fairly empty area for me. I just dab a small amount of the product in the morning on my edge and go about my day. I wash just the edge every other day to avoid any buildup, and I wash the rest of my hair once a week.
HOW DID YOU SEE YOUR HAIR CHANGE AFTER USING THE INNATE LIFE PRODUCTS?
The first sign that these were potent products from my observation was when I applied The Innate Life Scalp Treatment for Normal Scalp. The product got all over my fingernails as I was trying to apply it for the first time all over my scalp. My nails were coated in the product. It was late at night so I went to bed without washing my hands. In the morning, my nails looked like they had a good conditioning treatment and a bit of a boost, so I was excited to see if any changes would occur on my hair. It was too difficult to apply the product to my entire scalp, so I just put it on my right edge where I had a bald spot.
HOW LONG DID IT TAKE FOR YOU TO SEE RESULTS?
Within 2 weeks of almost daily application to my bald edge, the spot was filled in! I didn't even realize there was such a difference until I compared the before and after pictures and was amazed.
WHICH IS YOUR FAVOURITE PRODUCT AND WHY?
My favorite product is The Innate Life Rosemary Scalp Treatment because I have yet to find a product with this many natural and effective hair growth ingredients all in one product. Also, it is easy to apply.
WHO WOULD YOU RECOMMEND THESE PRODUCTS TO?
I would recommend these products to anyone seeking a natural, silicone-free + sulfate-free hair care line, to hair loss sufferers, and anyone looking to improve the health and/or growth of their hair.
HOW DOES THE INNATE LIFE FIT INTO A LIFESTYLE COMMITTED TO HEALTH + WELLNESS?
The Innate Life fits into a lifestyle committed to health because the products are natural and have ingredients that improve scalp health by reducing inflammation, fungus, improve circulation to the scalp, and nourish the scalp. In terms of wellness, healthier hair makes people have better self-esteem and happiness. No matter if you are young or old, rich or poor, professional or blue collar worker, large or petite, or where you live in the world, NOBODY wants to lose their hair or have unhealthy hair!
