Today’s Mira hair oil review comes from Chelsey, a Canadian who has been struggling greatly with her hair over the last several years. She has been kind enough to provide detailed information about her hair history and weekly journal updates over the last two months. I hope you take the time to read her story and learn about how Mira hair oil has helped her!
Chelsey’s hair history
Growing up my mom had always styled my hair short and it hadn’t started to matter to me until around grade 7. After a while my mom had stopped booking hair appointments and let my hair grow until the summer after grade nine. At that point my hair was past my chest area and I loved it, I had finally gotten the length I wanted! Until one day that summer my mom insisted on getting my hair cut at the salon. I was young and couldn’t say no and instead of cutting off an inch, the hair stylist cut off 4 inches. I was devastated and the change was so drastic my emotions could hardly handle it. I was 15 at the time and it was the beginning of my “hair nightmare”.
Everyday since then I had resorted to straightening, teasing, and extensions. Just about anything to be comfortable with myself again, but only to realize that I was starting to make myself go out of control but I couldn’t stop. With all the pressure of looking your best at all costs in High School, trying to keep up with everyone else, at the time all of that was needed to get through my day to day life. It started getting to the point where my ends and hair would fall out at the stroke of my brush or the touch of my fingers but I was so far gone it never bothered me but my family. My parents were constantly on my back about “you have to stop” and “everyone is laughing about you behind your back”. I heard all about it but I never believed them.
All of my intense teasing, washing my hair everyday, straightening my hair to the point where my hair would sizzle and stink had ended on my grad trip when I met my boyfriend Corey. He opened my eyes to that I was beautiful without all of that stuff and that I needed to fix it. I stopped doing too much and came to terms with doing toning it down as much as I could manage.
Now I am left with breakage, my hair all around my hair is at all different lengths. It’s dead, thin and lifeless. I had gone through countless products to try to achieve healthy, long hair. Although I do still wear my extensions occasionally but only when I am going out or when I’m visiting my boyfriend at his family’s house as we are currently doing long distance. I have managed to create an illusion with hairspray and extensions but I am sick of having to make sure no one sees me in the morning or before I do my hair after my shower. I want to wake up next to my boyfriend with hair that’s soft, not hair that’s dry and sticks out in every direction. Sometimes I don’t even know how he can look at me in the morning. And most of all I know he wants to be able to run his fingers through my hair without feeling a clip or touching dry brittle hair.
Thanks to finding this site and reading reviews, I now have high hopes, I have found Mira and I know it will change my life forever.
Chelsey’s Mira Hair Oil Journal
Week 1: My hair is definitely more manageable than it was a week ago! It’s starting to look softer and not as dead. Also, a piece on the side of my head to the front of my face doesn’t stick out anymore. I’m getting really excited!
Week 2: My hair is definitely stronger now. Before whenever I brushed my hair I would see pieces of it all over the floor and now there’s only the odd one or two. Also, I’ve noticed that my hair has gotten to be so manageable I don’t have to wash it every day. In the morning all I have to do is brush my hair and it’s still perfectly straight, not sticking out everywhere and dry.
Week 3: This week I’ve gotten a couple compliments on my hair. My friends who came home for their break said it looks shinier and healthier! It was very encouraging to hear that. Also, I noticed that I’ve actually gotten some of my natural curl back. I had lost that over the years because of the damage I was doing to my hair.
Now I just can’t wait to see the growth. It would be nice to get a couple inches.
Week 4: This week I’ve been staying over at my boyfriends’ parents house and it has been so much easier to show myself in the morning! My hair is now soft and wavy when I wake up instead of dry and tangled all over my head. It used to be so embarrassing trying to hide myself between my room and the bathroom! The ends of my hair are now healthy looking rather than dry split ends and the top of my head you can see how my roots are becoming softer
Week 5: This week I’ve begun to notice some volume in my hair that I didn’t have before. Occasionally I’ll tease it to give it a little more style to it but now I don’t find I have to.
Week 6: I’m actually starting to notice some growth in my hair now! Maybe now my hair will finally start to grow out. Also, now after I wash my hair and let it air dry my hair is as soft as it would be done at a salon! It’s really nice since my hair has been so dry and brittle for so long.
Week 7: No update (on vacation)
Week 8: My hair has come so far over the past two months. It’s completely changed from being dry, damaged hair to soft and wavy hair that only dreamed of having. It’s much more manageable and I’m comfortable with not wearing my extensions all the time which is a big step. My hair has maybe grown about half an inch, more than what it ever would over two months without Mira! I plan to keep using Mira until my hair is at the length I need it to be so I’m trying to be positive. I truly love Mira and can’t imagine not having it at this point in my life, it’s a miracle worker.
Here’s Chelsey’s before-and-after photo. Notice how much healthier her hair looks and how much the ends have evened out! Before, her ends were completely different lengths, but not after using Mira hair oil.
