***THIS GIVEAWAY IS CLOSED!***
As an added bonus, Hair Essentials is giving 50% off every order when you

I've wanted to try Hair Essentials for a while now. I think I first ran across their line via YouTube and I was intrigued right away. Since I was taking another vitamin at the time I decided to wait until those were complete before starting a new regimen. When I did more research on Hair Essentials and read about their all natural hair growth supplement (which is vegetarian) I became even more intrigued. Coincidentally, last week I  got an email asking if I wanted partner with them for their Valentine’s Day giveaway, which is centered around embracing inner confidence, I couldn't wait! 



So, let's get to the fun part...

One lucky reader will win a year’s supply of Hair Essentials (how generous is that?!), and they will be able to track their growth along with me, as I am trying it for a full year too! You all can expect a full review of the product every three months as I document the results. I started my vitamins yesterday and plan to take them everyday with a meal as directed. 


Here is how you enter:

Enter using the Rafflecopter widget below – all it takes is a few simple steps:


• In the comments leave your email address and answer the question: “What do you love most about your hair?” 
(If you do not see your comment right away do not fret! I am approving them all by hand.)

• For two optional entries everyday, tweet about the giveaway



Good luck!
This giveaway runs until next Friday at 5pm.
xo,
Alex

yabakare@gmail.com I love the versatility of my hair. No two days are the same (though some days I wish I could recreate flawless hair days) but she always surprises me and keeps things interesting

Keyaira said...

I love the versatility. I can mimic short styles, braid it up, do extensions, rock twist outs or even straighten it if I like. There are a TON of different styles to choose from and I pride myself on switching it up as often as possible. I really hope I win!!

iAngie$i said...

What I love most about my hair is that after all the years of mistreating it, its able to forgive and grow beautifully. Two years ago I cut off all my hair....and although I stopped with the the relaxers, and kertain; I continued to damage it with hair coloring and heat. So in 2014 I decided to finally give up heat and all those god awful products I used and only do for all natural products. The change on my hair has been phenomenal and I look forward to see my hair transform....

I love the resilience and fight in my hair. I have been on chemotherapy on and off since I was 16 and no matter how many times I lose it or have to cut it off it comes back healthier and more beautifully and I appreciate it even more! I would absolutely love to try the Hair Essentials vitamins!

S.Wright said...

What I love most about my hair is that even on a "bad hair day" my hair can still look good. The thickness of my hair always leaves room for what may have intentionally been a mistake, to become a beautiful mess. It's not perfect, but it has its own beauty. As long as I love her, she loves me!

I love how my hair has rewarded me once I accepted that it didn't need to change. Once my fingers grew patient, it stopped breaking, once I gave it moisture it curled, and once I stopped using chemicals it softened. Once I changed, my hair and I stopped fighting.

I love how thick my hair is, but hate how much hair I lose!

Iman said...

I am in love/recently infatuated with my hair because, now that I am truly giving it TLC, I can see its full potential. I am in love with the fact that my hair can mimic so many different textures, just by altering my regimen and I also love how soft and alive it has become over the past few months. It matches my personality to a tee!

I pretty much love everything about my hair. I love the way it curls, the way it fros up, the fact that I have different textures and it's amazing how those different textures all come out of one head. And that's mine. What's not to love?

What do I love most about my hair?

I love the fact that my hair tells me exactly what it needs, likes and dislikes.

Rasheda said...

I love that I can express my feelings daily through my hair. I didn't realize it before, but my friends say they can always tell my mood by the styles I rock. I assumed it was out of pure laziness but after months of checking my moods and styles I have to say my hair talks louder than my voice.

I love my hair because I was blessed with it! Sometimes it can get on my nerves, but it is apart of me and I love it even more because of that. It helps me feel beautiful and complete.

ShalayaOfficial said...

What I love most about my hair? I love that my hair is healthy, thick, and versatile. My natural hair is a representation of who I am. I've always wanted to look how I felt on the inside, and with my hair being in its natural state I can finally express those feelings. Natural hair gives me confidence, now when I am walking I walk with my head held high like a young queen. I love natural hair, and I am almost 1year all natural (April 17th) and I am so happy that I mad the decision to chop, and experience my natural hair, because not only is it healthy it brings confidence, and a new love for doing our hair :)

Even though it seemingly has a mind of its own, I love how versatile it is.

Rasheda said...

I love my hair. I recently learned that my hair has a personality of her own. One Girl Friends Dinner Night my girls told me that they can always tell how I'm feeling based on my hair. If I'm happy and confident I have a nice big Fro. If I'm tired it's in a messy bun, If I'm all business and focused it's in a nice flat twist hair style. And so On. I love my hair because my hair is me. And even when my voice is silence my hair speaks volumes.

zeezeetop said...

What I love about my hair is that regardless of how many times I think I'm having a bad hair day, everyone else sees it as such great beauty. My hair has always been my signature symbol. As hard as it is to manage most times, its a challange I am very happy I have taken on for these past 6 years.

I love the texture of my hair. My hair is naturally wavy, so I get the pin-straight haired girls always complimenting on it. And I also love that I am able to straighten it, curl it, do whatever I want with it with little fuss. Having so many options at my disposal makes me a happy gal!

VioletFlame777 said...

My hair is not like anyone else's hair in the entire world! That is what I love love love about myself and my hair, because no two people are alike.

I love the versatility of my natural hair.

Marian Peters said...

I love my hair because it is unique. I can wear it curly, straight, wavy, or use different protective styles or tools to get it how I want. My hair doesn't always behave exactly the way that I may want it to but that's what makes it my hair. I love my hair because sometimes it has a mind of its own and it turns out better than I expected/planned.

What I love most about my hair?
I love how liberating it makes me feel and how it symbolizes my coming of age and acknowledgment of what it means to be a natural, beautiful woman of color. My hair is a crown, it is pride and heritage. Personally, it's a statement of my love for myself.

Britt said...

I love that it's really easy to detangle! I always hear of people spending so much time detangling, and I'm happy I was blessed in that area.

I'm curious to see how these work. I have never used a supplement strictly for hair.

I love that my hair is uneven. I'm sure that's weird to say but I love that the back is shorter than the front and I have to be challenged to try new styles. I love the kinkiness of my hair. This is one lovely journey I'm excited to be on.

I Love my natural hair and the versatility that I have to put it in different hair styles. delores_237@yahoo.com

Rhea Williams said...

mon33leelee@yahoo.com I love that my hair requires a lot of TLC. Most ppl might not like that it takes a lot to care for natural kinky curly hair but I believe that it teaches me patience. One day I'll master my own hair :) I also love that there are so many different styles that I can do with my hair.

I commented a while back when this giveaway opened, but realized my comment isn't on here anymore.

My hair is my crown and it's my throne. What queen wants to give up their throne?

Sanni said...

I love my hair because it's soft and easy to style (when it wants to cooperate) and when it's not I just Let It Be. Versatility, that comes with natural hair curly, straight, crown, blow dry, puff or braids. No matter what it can do it all. Thanks

I love the kinkyness of my hair. I am trying to learn more styles, but my go-to style is just playing off my kinky hair, e.g. wash-and-go. Love it.

Angelica Cox said...

My hair is my crown no matter how it may be presented. What I love most about my hair is the many lessons it taught and continues to teach me. For a long time I was addicted to the creamy crack. I loved my hair to be straight, I was also into dying my hair heavily. In high school in went a bit to far with the bleaching process and completely ruined my hair. Between bleaching, perming, flat ironing and the blow dryer my hair was completely fried. I had no other choice but to chop it all off; but I was scared. My main thoughts were "I can't cut my hair off I'd be ugly without my hair," "what will people at school think!?," and "I'm sure I'm going to be laughed at and talked about." Despite the many thoughts racing through my head I only had two choices, walk around with brittle broken straw for hair that is as bright as the sun or cut it all off and start fresh and new with healthy hair. The answer was pretty obvious, especially after a teacher approached me and said "I think you should consider using oil for your hair, I'm sure it'll help with making it look less dry and damaged." After chopping my hair off, I looked in the mirror and to my surprise I was very excited and pleased with what I saw. I wasn't ugly, I didn't care what the other students would have thought and I noticed features about myself I previously overlooked because I hid behind my hair. I wasn't a complete natural right off the bar, but over time I've learned to be more gentle and caring towards my hair. So when asked what I love most about my hair, it's the many lessons it's taught me. Because of those lessons I can not only take better care of my hair, I can show the same amount of love and care towards my daughter's.


I do not have a Facebook or Twitter so I hope I'm still able to participate.

I love how my hair helps define me.. much like Diana Ross or Chaka Khan. People associate a big curly fro with me. I have been natural my entire life and I spent a good deal of time hating my big frizzy hair. I have fallen completely in love with my mane and I am happy to have it be a recognizable part of my look. Victoria.Louisa.S@gmail.com

I love the versatility of my hair and the ability I have to create any look I'd like. I can morph it to create so many style to match so many looks- I absolutely love it, and I wouldn't change its beauty for the world!

I love that my hair has become an example that "good" hair doesn't always mean straight or long hair. I have thick, healthy, mid length hair that I love!

I love all the comments or questions people have about my hair it gives me an opportunity to educate people on the natural hair journey.
