Siraad Dirshe Jan, 04, 2018

This year we’re committing to putting our health and wellness first. From our minds to bodies we’re declaring that 2018 is the year we fully commit to getting healthy — and that includes our hair. 

Over the past few months, we’ve discovered and reported on several interesting products/ingredients Black women are using to help their hair growth, such as Vicks Vaporub. And while we’re all for topical solutions, conventional or otherwise, we’re taking a different approach this time around and opting for hair supplements.

For 90 days three editors, each with different hair health goals, will be taking hair supplements and tracking their journey with ESSENCE.com and their Instagram Stories. 

Keep scrolling to see which supplement each of the ladies will be taking and be sure to check back in to see their hair progress.
