DermaRoller system

How do you grow your hair faster? 

That’s a good question. It’s one that I would not have known the answer to until recently. Why? Well, I don’t really watch a lot of daytime TV. I’m at work until usually 4:30 or so many days and when I come home I check my email and cook dinner or figure out what we’re doing for dinner if I’m not cooking. That means that I usually miss the daytime talk shows. I don’t get to hear the advice of any of the doctors or see any of the interesting medical breakthroughs that are discussed. So maybe that’s why I haven’t heard about a derma roller. Have you?

I was sent a Derma Roller system that was featured on The Rachel Ray Show and The Doctor’s show. For those asking “How do you grow your hair faster?”, I’m getting to that, trust me. A Derma Roller is a device that you can use for a variety of purposes. It can be used, among other things, is to stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin to promote healthier skin cells. Derma Rollers can be used to treat hyperpigmentation, scars, wrinkles, and hair loss.

A derma roller is a roller that has small needles on it. The one that I used has 2.0mm needles all around the head. The directions that are included with the product tell you exactly how to use it. You simply roll back and forth the number of times that are suggested. I think it’s up and down, left and right, and also diagonally one way and then diagonally the other way. Easy peasy. I used it on a patch of hyperpigmentation on my leg. I can’t report on whether it worked or not, because it will obviously take several treatments for it to work, but I can report that it wasn’t painful for me. You might think that rolling needles across your skin would be painful, but it wasn’t. Of course you can feel the needles pricking your skin, but it didn’t hurt me.

The Derma Roller is a hand-held device which has the ability to naturally stimulate collagen and elastin in the skin to promote healthier skin cells. Using the Derma Roller to renew your skin cells regularly, you will be able to treat common problems such as wrinkles, skin hyperpigmentation, scars (including acne scars), uneven skin, stretch marks and even hair loss.

How do you grow your hair faster?

Well, apparently you can use a derma roller to help grow your hair faster. You can do treatments on your scalp to help stimulate hair growth. While hair growth is not a problem for me at this time in my life, I like to think that doing something as simple as some derma roller treatment can help. There are directions included that tell you how to use the derma roller so you can use it for whatever you need. You can get one of your own on Amazon.

Have you ever used a derma roller? Has it worked for you? Let me know what you think in the comments.

amazingly beautiful A.M. and P.M. picture

Disclosure: I received these products for the purpose of doing a review. All opinions are my own.

Do you tend to think that nature provides the best answer? I happen to think that there is something that is out there in nature to provide the things that we need and that can do it better than chemically created compounds can, we just have to find it. I am happy to try products that are friendly for the environment and that are natural. I think that natural products are an important part of healty living. As I age, it is starting to become more and more important that I at least try natural products to see if they work as well as the ones that I am used to using that are full of chemicals.

I got the opportunity to try a couple of products from Trusted Health Products. The products I tried are Amazingly Beautiful A.M. and Amazingly Beautiful P.M. They are moisturizers that are made from natural ingredients such as different types of oils. They smell soooo good. I like that they are made with natural ingredients instead of unrecognizable chemical ones.

I must admit that when I first heard that I was going to get to review these products, I wasn’t really sure what to expect. I knew that they were oils so I thought they would make my skin oily. However, I was wrong. If you haven’t used an oil moisturizer for your skin, you have to give it a try! It makes my skin so soft and smooth and moisturized feeling. Of course, it is oil, so when you first put it on your face, it will be shiny. That doesn’t last long, though. Your skin absorbs the oil pretty much drinking it in.

When you think about it, why wouldn’t oils be the best moisturizer for your skin? Think about the beautiful women of the Bible. They probably didn’t have chemical moisturizers! They probably had natural oils. To moisturize their skin.

I definitely recommend giving natural oils a try. Once you get used to them, you might not ever want to go back to using cream lotions for your skin. Especially if you want a natural option.

Disclosure: I received products for free in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are mine.

Well, I don’t have a baby anymore. I sure do miss having one, though. I miss all of the sweet kisses (me to him), the fact that I could just lay him down and he couldn’t really do anything, and rocking him to sleep. Babies are so sweet!

Now I have a big boy. He doesn’t need me for much of anything. I can lay him down, but he won’t stay. He doesn’t want to be rocked to sleep, and he doesn’t really want kisses from my very often. Well, I can’t kiss him as often as I could when he was a baby, anyway. Now I have a big boy and that has its own advantages. Advantage #1- I don’t have to wash him. He can wash himself. Woo hoo! When I found out that I was going to have the chance to review Dial Baby Body + Hair Wash I was excited that I would get a free bottle of soap that he could use himself. Free is always good, right? And I knew that since it is Dial, I don’t have to worry about there being ingredients that will bother his sensitive skin because it is gentle body wash. Same thing for the soap. He can wash his own hands and I don’t have to worry about his skin breaking out or anything.
