Sometimes life can get stressful when you're a working woman balancing a jam-packed schedule. If you're still learning the ropes of stress management, let's say that a 5-6 hour installation of braids can quickly become an instant removal if you're not careful.
When my braid fell out, I was horrified. I wasn't sure if my hair would grow back. On top of that, I was dealing with a very dry scalp that is a diva and always needs moisture. I'm happy to have discovered and say that it is possible to grow your hair back and maintain a wonderfully happy and moisturized scalp.
Fire Extinguisher #1
Michiru Minoxidil Topical Solution (2%)
This bottled beauty contains the only ingredient medically proven to regrow a woman's hair. It is very lightweight and has more of a chemical smell. I used this product to target the spot where the braid fell out in my hair.
Fire Extinguisher #2
Michiru Scalp Tonic
Infused with niacinamide, the product reduces scalp dryness in two weeks. Like its sister, it is also lightweight. I was also surprised by its milky texture. It has a wonderful scent and absorbs quickly into the scalp. I used this product for the remaining area of my scalp as well as the hairless spot to add more moisture.
The Repair and Nourshiment Experience
I used both products for two weeks. Using Michiru has allowed my scalp to feel deliciously nourished while growing back the hair. I used Michiru primarily after showering after a workout, before working out, and at times before bed. That way there is sufficient blood flow and my pores are open. As you can see from the picture, some of my hair has grown back but there is more to fun with continuation of the product!
Additionally I will say that after two weeks of consistently using the Michiru Scalp Tonic, I have a small corner of product left. This is to be suspected since the product is supposed to be used consistently for two weeks. I still have about half of product left for the Michiru Hair Regrowth Treatment.
(Please note: While using these products I did take hair growth supplements.)
Things to Know About Michiru
Michiru hit the shelves of Target in February 2023. As the product line combines holistic wellness and science, it infuses the Japanese-inspired ingredients of rice protein, sakura powder, citrus yuzu, and silk powder.
Along with these two products, Michiru has launched a range of six wash and care products. These products are free of sulfates, silicones, dyes, and parabens. Products range in price from $14.99 to $24.99.
