NuNAAT Garlic Magic

You may have seen Instagram post recently about the new products from NuNAAT that I was excited to try out. I am sure the first thing that comes to mind is, wwww, garlic? I don’t want to smell like garlic! Rosemary Mint, maybe but garlic, no thanks! Well, I’ve been using these products for about 2 weeks and I’m ready to report back.

The NAAT Garlic Magic line is amazing! Aside from the magical fact, that it does NOT contain a garlic smell from the garlic extract, it has fabulous benefits including:
-Restoring hair to a strong, healthy and natural state. Which is much needed on my chemical challenged locks!
-Formulated with garlic extract
-Fresh, clean scent. No garlic smell! Seriously, not a trace of garlic. Just a light, clean scent.
-Fights dandruff, excessive oiliness and hair loss
-Suitable for all hair types.
-Ideal for slow-to-grow and fragile hair. Perfect for me!

You may be wondering, why garlic? What is the benefit?
Garlic is a naturally powerful antibiotic that removes harmful toxins and offers relief to the dry, itchy scalp. When crushed, garlic releases an enzyme known as alliinase, which stimulates blood flow, strengthening hair and reducing breakage. It is also known to increase body and shine. But…who wants to smell like garlic all day!? nuNAAT has developed a unique way of processing the garlic extract in their NAAT Garlic collection so that there is NO garlic smell. In fact, the whole collection has a very pleasant fragrance that will leave your scalp healthy and hair growing strong.

My hair is currently extremely chemically processed. Even when it is not so crispy (to put it nicely), it doesn’t grow very quickly. Im not losing it to breakage or heat styling damage, it just doesn’t grow! Very frustrating! So I’m excited to use the Garlic Magic for longer than 2 weeks to see if I see any changes there. Not that I am trying to grow it super long again any time soon.

Right now I am super busy with an almost 2 year old and about to have a newborn. I am not working out quite as much as I do when I have a better handle on life. With my hair shorter, like this, I don’t really wear it curly very often. Drying it smooth isn’t super hard or time consuming at this length. But I don’t love doing it so I try to shampoo as little as possible. Like maybe once or twice a week.

For the last 2 weeks I have been using these products, I have been really happy with the results. I do feel like my hair is in great condition, not overly moisturized but just enough. I also feel like I can still go a few days in between shampooing. So far, I have nothing but good things to report.

Thanks so much to NuNAAT for giving me the opportunity to try these products and give some feedback. For more information on the Garlic Magic line, check out their website here. You can find label ingredients here.

It is FINALLY here! The website update is live!

Can you tell that I am a little excited!?!?! I am trying to play it cool but with MUCH sweat and tears, mostly tears, the new website is FINALLY here and I am pretty darn proud of it.

As a creative person and super busy working artist,  I am not a techy expert. I really struggle in this department. Thankfully I pulled in some support from good friends who gave me their perspective. Between that and searching for answers in the Squarespace forums, emailing them for help and spending hours on the phone with tech support, it is done.

Some things you may notice are new images in the portfolios, it had been awhile since I had added new images. The old website wasn’t on the easiest platform for me to manage. Squarespace is MUCH easier. My last website and blog had my photo from 2010 and I had long dark hair with purple bangs! I have probably had 1,000 hair changes since then. Shouts out to my husband for taking a nice photo of me to add to my about me page.

I want to give a big old thank you to my dearest of dear friends who took the time to edit and proofread to catch my spelling, grammar and punctuation errors. Why is it that you can reread your own writing 1 million times and not see that you typed the twice or spaced things weird. You need those fresh eyes to catch those mistakes that your eyes just won’t see. THANK YOU FRIENDS!

Have you missed me here? When my son was born last year and life got so busy after I went back to work, I neglected the blog. I used to post daily but now I am going for 1-2 solid posts per month. I would love to know what type of posts or videos you would like to see from me now? I am also working hard to update content at Money Making Makeup Artist.

Are you interested in working together on an upcoming photo or video shoot? Send me a message here and I will check availability. Thanks!
