In the fall of 2008, I decided to get serious about caring for my damaged, dull, weak and breaking hair. I was well into middle age and unsure of whether I could reverse the poor condition of my hair. I'd read that hair growth slows and that our hair becomes thinner as we age. Plus, I just wanted longer hair! My hair had never reached much longer than shoulder length.
The photos you see document my journey to longer, thicker, healthier hair over a four year period. Bad selfies never lie!
I searched everywhere for a high quality product with ingredients that could naturally strengthen and protect my fragile hair: I wanted a versatile product that could be used many different ways.
As I was transitioning from relaxed to natural hair, I wanted a botanical product that would work on both relaxed and natural hair; in fact on ANY hair type. It had to be a product with a light scent that would not overwhelm. As the old saying goes, "Necessity is the mother of invention." I couldn't find what I needed, so I began to experiment with making my own formula. I wanted to include only the best ingredients that are really GOOD for your hair.
It was out of that need that Shelly's Nourish was born. Friends and family began to notice the improvement in my hair. My hair was longer than it had ever been in my life! They asked for my balm and told their friends and family about it. People began to contact me from far flung places asking me where they could get it. Now I'm bringing it to you. Welcome to the Healthy Hair Revolution!
After a three and a half inch trim in 2015, My hair is currently mid back length, unrelaxed and much thicker and healthier than it was at the start of my road to healthy hair in 2008. I'll continue to update you with current photos from time to time.
Don't hesitate to contact me with any questions you may have. I look forward to getting to know you!
