Hair growth success story: Kim3 min read

Every month we feature a customer success story, to inspire you on your hair growth journey. This time we spoke to Kim from the United States who shared her journey of natural curls.

Tell us a bit about your hair journey, Kim.

I first went natural eight years ago (in 2016) after seeing a friend’s Facebook post. She was someone I had gone to college with, and hadn’t seen years. The last time I saw her she had chemically straightened hair like myself – the pictures I saw, however, showed her with curly natural hair. I immediately thought she used some sort of rollers to create the look but after contacting her, I found out that she had stopped relaxing her hair years prior, and those curls I saw were hers. I was both confused and intrigued.

I began to do a lot of research on what being natural meant, and how to achieve getting curls myself. I saw that I could either transition or big chop and I decided to big chop because I knew I would not be able to handle transitioning with the two different hair textures (straight and curly). I “big chopped” in February 2016 and never looked back because I fell in love with my natural hair.

Why did you decide to try The Hair Fuel?

I decided to try The Hair Fuel Mask because I had a bad haircut in September 2022. My stylist at the time cut my hair, much shorter than I wanted and I was unhappy with the cut. I was looking try to accelerate my hair growth. A friend of mine who uses The Hair Fuel suggested I try it. I had nothing to lose so I decided to give it a go and I had great results.

What lifestyle changes have made the biggest difference for your hair? 

The lifestyle changes that have made the biggest differences for my hair have been:

  • Making sure I am drinking enough water
  • Eating a balanced diet because you definitely are what you eat
  • Protecting my curls at night
  • Using products with ingredients that are healthy for my hair – and not just because they are trendy.

What results have you experienced with the mask?

My hair has grown much faster and in some areas my hair has EVEN gotten thicker.

What advice could you share with someone who is struggling in their hair growth journey?

I think the biggest advice I would give to someone struggling with their growth journey is to be patient, even though it is hard to do so. I would also suggest having a great hair care regimen that’s going to keep your scalp and hair healthy to help promote growth, that includes cleansing and conditioning regularly, using treatments like The Hair Fuel Mask, being gentle with your hair, using quality products, and showing your hair love.
