Student Success Story: Solving Split Ends and a Hair Plateau for Longer Healthier Hair!
Welcome to our latest Student Success Story! Today we are celebrating Rosie who joined The 14 Day Haircare Challenge suffering with split ends and hair that wouldn't grow past a certain length. Read her story here:
What hair problems did you struggle with before you joined the 14 Day Challenge?
I’ve always prioritized the care of my hair and have always had access to the top products available as a hairdresser, but I still struggled with split ends and getting my hair to grow past a certain length. I knew there had to be more answers somewhere. I was frustrated that I couldn’t figure it out!
What made you decide to join? Do you remember the particular moment when you made the decision to do this for yourself?
I remember seeing an ad for The Haircare Challenge and being sceptical. I thought “What more could they teach me from this that I haven’t already learned already? This is probably one of those ‘workshops’ that teaches you genetic advice as a sales pitch to a bigger program.” I let it go but kept it in the back of my mind. Of course I kept seeing ads for it and so I started doing my research on the company. It had its fair share of not so happy reviews, but it also had some good ones as well. After deciding it was at least legit and seeing a promotion for it during the holidays, I decided to commit. I had nothing to lose and I was intrigued
What results have you seen since implementing the learnings?
Much to my surprise, the 14 day challenge was rich and overflowing with information. It addressed the very things I had learned that I had questioned and had doubts about. Turns out, my convictions were right and the hair care challenge connected the dots, explaining the validity of what I had suspected. I implemented what I learned with confidence. I use the tools from the challenge regularly as a litmus test to make sure any new products follow my new protocol. I’ve seen my split ends cease and my hair beginning to reach new lengths with a fresh fullness.
What areas of the 14 Day Challenge made the biggest difference for you? How did it feel having a community to be part of?
I’d say the areas of the challenge that made the biggest difference for me were learning to differentiate between safe ingredients and harsh ingredients specifically by name, not just by type. It’s the gray areas between these two that are really the key to success in hair growth. Learning to make my own shampoo unleashed a sense of freedom, that my hair care routine can be completely in my control. Having a community involved in this challenge was encouraging, as many other girls had the same questions I had.
What is the next goal/milestone you would like to reach with your hair?
My next goal in my haircare journey is to get my oily scalp under control. That’ll be a long process for me as personally this is potentially a hormonal issue. I’m excited to have more tools in my arsenal to take control of my hair’s potential!
Rosie has learnt so much within the 14 Day Challenge that has helped her push past her hair plateau so she can grow her hair longer! She has found freedom within the information that she has learnt and has been able to take control of her hair care routine, in order to work towards the results she desires. We cannot wait to see what she achieves next!
