Over the past few weeks, my hair has become noticeably longer and thicker! It's not a drastic change - but it's certainly a big enough of a change  that I've picked up on it. My hairline coming back after experiencing postpartum hair loss  however, that has been a major change! After many "good hair days" in a row, I decided that I needed to investigate what exactly I was doing to give my hair this extra "uumph" and growth! Turns out it's the Lavender & Lemongrass Oil that I've been using daily as part of my L.O.C Method (don't worry, I'll explain what that is in another post). If you're experiencing some balding, hair loss or just need to breathe some life back into your hair, these essential oils may be just the thing you need!
