Growing Healthy Vibrant Hair

Hair is a woman’s crowning glory and there’s not a woman I know who doesn’t care what her hair looks like. We all care about our hair.  Whether it’s thick, thin, short, long, gray or colored, hair is a big part of who we are and how we feel about ourselves.  We spend a lot of time on our hair, getting it to look just so and it’s amazing how a bad haircut can make us feel less than and self-conscious when we go out into the world.  Most women I know go kicking and screaming on giving up their hair color to gray hair, myself included.  We simply do not want to let go of our youthful vibrant hair!  I’m going to go ahead and let you know up front that this is a sponsored post with 2-Minute Club featuring Pura D’or (pronounced pure uh dee or), but if you have a problem with thinning hair, keep reading! It might be of interest to you.

Hair is one of those God-given features that make us who we are.  So, let’s talk about a few ways to improve our hair as we get older.  There are so many things that affect our hair, from diet and hormones, to what products we put on our hair, hair coloring, and to heat styling products. Just the environment we live in can take a toll on our hair and how healthy it is.

I’ve talked about hair before here on my blog and I know it’s a subject that is very important and of great interest to all of you too.  So, let’s talk about a few ways to get better hair, shall we?

Good healthy hair starts from the inside as well as the products we use on the outside.  

Eating healthy good foods filled with nutrients can definitely contribute to healthy vibrant hair, getting plenty of vitamins in our diet.  Taking Biotin and Niacin can also help make hair healthier from the inside out and those are good for our nails as well.  I’ve taken Biotin before and need to get on it again.

Use products that enhance and strengthen your hair and make it look and feel better.  

Today I’m highlighting a new product that I’ve recently tried called Pura D’or that I want to share with you.  Do you have thinning hair?  I don’t have that problem, but I know many women who complain about their hair thinning.  Pura D’or  may help you with that if it’s something you struggle with.  Hair changes with age and thinning hair is something that happens to a lot of women as we get older, due to loss of hormones especially.  From the reviews I’m reading about Pura D’or, it sounds like there are a lot of very happy customers, so it may be something you’d like to try. You don’t know if you don’t try it!  It’s sulfate free, paraben free, which I’ve been using for awhile now, since it’s less harsh on the hair.  The shampoo is plant based extracts, giving it a fresh botanical scent. And remember I mentioned Biotin above?  Pura D’or contains Biotin as well.

I never make huge sweeping claims here on my blog about how something may work, but I did read reviews on this product and it sounds like it’s helping a lot of women with thinning hair.  I’ve been using it for the last 2 weeks and the products smell really good with a fresh botanical scent and the conditioner made my hair nice and soft and it felt more silky than normal.  With over 14K positive reviews, that says a lot about the products and it’s where you’ll find the lowest member only pricing, plus free shipping.

Keep a current hairstyle!  

I think this is something that a lot of women struggle with. We sometimes see ourselves as we were at a younger age, when we felt our best and thought we looked our best.  Staying in an out of date hairstyle will definitely age you fast, so be sure and look in the mirror with a keen eye and ask yourself the question, does this hairstyle still look flattering on me?  Your best friends will tell you that!  I have really thick, naturally curly coarse hair, so I have had to find styles along the way that work for my hair type. Hair type you can’t change, but you can change styles and products.  Also, keeping ends trimmed regularly helps keep hair looking its best.

To Color or not to color?  

I think there’s no one size fits all for this.  I do prefer to keep my hair colored blonde and not go gray, although it’s going gray more rapidly than ever.  It’s not so hard to keep my blonde color up to date, so I do that with my stylist about every 3 months, but as I get older I know that will be harder and harder to keep up with.  I have no plans in the near future to stop coloring my hair, but that’s a decision we all have to make for ourselves.  I personally still love pretty colored hair on older women!  To me, it’s a more youthful look.

Don’t wash hair too often.  

I’ve heard that washing hair every day can definitely take a toll on the hair.  I used to do that myself, but now I only wash my hair no more than 2 or 3 times a week.  I used to have much oilier hair than I do now, but now if I go an extra day or so without washing it I use a dry shampoo spray to combat any oil that might look bad, combing it through and styling as usual.  It’s only around my hairline that it gets oily anyway.

Heat styling products can also take a toll on hair, making it dry and brittle.

We all need to be careful with that.  I use my flat iron once or twice a week and in the summer months go with my natural curls about half the time which saves my hair from the heat process.  I use a blow dryer on warm and not hot and use my styling products, including Argan oil for shine and moisture while wet. Pura D’or helps with reducing breakage which contributes to thicker hair.

Using the right products definitely go a long way to shiny, vibrant and healthy hair so there are many things we can do to help our hair age as gracefully as the rest of us.  Are you doing anything special for your hair and is thinning hair one of your problems?

Consider trying Pura D’or and see if it works for you.  I know this is a sponsored post and again, I can’t guarantee that it will work for everyone in increasing hair growth and volume, but their reviews say a lot.  Just to be upfront, this site is a membership site and the orders are set up to ship automatically, but you can customize the ordering to whatever timeline works for you.  If you decide for any reason to cancel, you can do that for FREE at anytime.  You can try out the product for the first order and then see how you like it.  If it doesn’t perform for you the way you’d like it to, then there is no problem canceling your order subscription.

More information about Pur D’or:

A healthy scalp allows hair to grow more vital and Pura D’or shampoos fortify from the root to the ends to reduce hair loss and breakage.

Pura D’or fights thinning hair naturally without all the chemicals.  I do love the botanical scent of the shampoo and it’s tingly on the scalp.

After an 8 week clinical study, 9 out of 10 users noticed increased volume to their hair.

A lot of women are talking about the product, so if hair thinning is a problem or you need more volume to your hair, why not give it a try?  I am using the Gold set now and enjoying the products a lot.   Is it the right one for you?  You’ll have to try it and see!

  1. Seems I am being “sold” something all day on the internet. This was a disappointment.

    • HI, Monica, I hear you and I can see why you might feel that way when I look around blogland too. I really try to do minimal sponsored posts, so thank you all for indulging me in these posts since I need to do them sometimes.

  2. Cheryl Johnson says:

    Do you have a favorite dry shampoo, Rhoda? I’m trying to wash my hair less often and would like to know of a good dry shampoo for blonde hair. Thanks so much…Cheryl Ann

    • Hey, Cheryl, I picked up Suave spray dry shampoo at Walmart and it works well for me. It sprays out a little white-ish, so blends in well with blonde. I then just brush it in around the hair line.

      • Cheryl, If you are blonde I picked up Batiste Dry Shampoo with a touch of blonde in Burkes one day. I loved that stuff – disguised roots great & was a great shade of blonde that blended in perfectly while making hair feel clean too. I will buy again .

  3. I’ve said it before…I will be blonde when I die, hopefully at the age of 100! You are so right about changing to current hairstyles to keep from looking old. Rhoda, you look so beautiful in that picture with the flowers!

  4. Your hair is always great , Rhoda! My back looks just like yours. They cut in layers because it is so thick.. The front is layered some too but not as much as it use to be. I have a young hair stylist and she has my thick hair smoother not so layered . I can flare & flip the ends, turn beveled under or straight. I think yours is great either way , curly or smooth. I highlight & low light now because of dealing with gray coming in and my roots are dark brown too. I use round brush & blow dryer to style, touch the ends up with a low to medium setting on curling iron & spray from underneath with Kendra hair spray. Boom I’m good for at least 3 days of washing hair again. I also have bangs that are side swept and kinda down & under like yours. Great helpful post for the ones dealing with hair thinning & good info for us incase, huh?

  5. I plan to still color my hair, as well. And you are right….a bad haircut can be a bad day maker!! This product sounds interesting. I wish, though, that these types of products weren’t always “subscriptions” that get you stuck with the product coming continually. I’ll admit that I am leary of those things.

    • Hey, Debbie, I know and I don’t blame you. It does say that you can cancel at anytime so that’s what I’ve been told by my contacts.

  6. Hi Rhoda, I don’t usually do anything with these sponsored posts but since my hair is thinning I thought I would give this a try. The only problem with ordering was that there was no place for me to put in your code “HOSPITALITY,” what can be done about that?

  7. Becky in 'Bama says:

    Boy Rhoda, you aren’t afraid to address a touchy subject – and there’s nothing we all have an opinion about like our hair! LOL You are very fortunate (very, very) to have good thick hair. I’ve dealt with thin straight locks all my life and that includes crying, kicking and screaming. I AM happy to say that even at age 62 the gray has been held at bay by genetics, and I am able to get by with some blond highlights every three or four months. But finding a flattering look and trying to style fine limp hair is an on-going dilemma and now we are moving into the dreaded high humidity days which for me are a nightmare at times (with regards to my hair). When I hear any one whining about their overly curly thick hair I have to resist the urge to punch them. Live through a day with stringy fine hair with your scalp showing and trying to some how not look like a pin head THEN you can complain. (I’m sort of kidding – not kidding. 🙂 ) Thanks for the info on this product.

    • Hey, Becky, you always make me laugh! I promise I’m not going to complain about my hair, I know I’m fortunate and really am grateful for the head of hair I’ve been blessed with. Thanks for stopping by today!

  8. dj Vinolus says:

    I can vouch for this product. I have used it for about 4 months now and am VERY pleased with it. It did take a while, but I have noticed my scalp in the front section of my hair isn’t nearly as thin as it once was. Highly recommend.

    • HI, dj, thanks for chiming in on your experience, I’m so glad to hear that. I figured if someone needed it at least they could give it a try.

  9. I have thick curly hair but had to chime in about the going gray issue. I stopped dying my hair two yrs ago much to the chagrin of a few friends. I couldn’t believe some of their reactions. While I didn’t get offended I really hate how there is such a double standard out there where it remains acceptable for a man to go gray without question. I told them it was just hair and didn’t define me and to get over it, lol! I have an olive complexion and very dark hair. Even though my hair is still mostly dark you can see the gray when you are in close proximity. The gray was showing within two wks and I was touching up every three wks which I find ridiculous. I will say that a major pet peeve of mine is showing roots. IMHO if you are committed to dying your hair, then it should be kept up. I see so many that have obvious gray roots and I think it looks horrible. I got tired of having to touch up every three wks and said enough is enough. 🙂

    • Hi, Lisa, I get it, I really do. And if I had dark roots I may feel the same way, but my blonde is pretty easy to keep up with. I think everyone has to decide the color issue for themselves. I would never try to shame any of my friends for going gray, they have to make that choice and what makes them happy. Kudos to you for doing your thing!

  10. I have fine hair that’s not really thin. But I am getting paranoid about the front, it looks a little thin to me so I keep bangs but they are a pain. So, I plan to try your products. Where else are we going to learn about new things except from one another, people we trust?
    When I go get my hair done, I really try to be a little trendy and energetic, if the stylist sees a little old lady, I feel I am likely to get a little old lady cut.

  11. Rhoda, the comments section is going down the left side of my page one or two words to a line. Has anyone else mentioned that? Thanks!

    • Hey, Terry, if you are running an ad blocker,that’s probably the issue. Certain browsers are having that problem when they run an ad blocker, bu if you turn it off viewing my blog, it should be normal.
