Whey Protein shakes

Like Tree3Likes

I think I'm going to stick with the vegan protein powder and see if it makes a difference. The protein content is a little less, but not a lot. I'd rather feel good than be uncomfortable all day.

I drink Lean Protein Shakes. It's called Lean Shake 25 for 25 grams of protein and it has LOTS of vitamins in it. You can get it at GNC. I love it. I get the chocolate flavor. It's disgusting with water so I put in 1% milk to just a regular size glass. It really doesn't add much fat at all and it makes it easier to take every day. Also, a blender bottle is really helpful to get to make sure the powder gets mixed in really well. My brother uses Whey Protein after his workouts to speed up his recovery time and build more muscle mass. I think it's more beneficial for guys. I would use it but I just wish it had more vitamins in it.

Hmmm...my hubby drinks whey protein after his workouts too (chocolate flavor). Didn't realize it could help with hair growth. But it always smells so disgusting (yuck). I'd probably have to doctor it up so much to be able to drink it, that it would lose any nutritional value. But might be worth a try. And if I could just get my butt moving with some exercise too...

My favorite brands are Kinky Curly, As I am, Curly Kinks, Curl Junkie, and Darcy's Botanicals. Also love sealing with oils (loving argan oil right now) and styling with jelly products (KCCC is my current favorite). Mostly trying to keep it simple!

Protein shakes definitely work, for me at least. My hair grows average pace, but I started drinking protein smoothies recently, and I have noticed the change. My nails grow a lot faster and stronger, and my hair has sped up in growth too.

I can see newer waves at my roots at a faster rate than I'm used to, and It definitely looks longer than I would have expected it to be. I used to do the length pictures and even measure inches but I wish I had.

The only thing with protein shakes is that if you are not active and working out you will gain weight. I gained some weight in my thighs because I started slacking while I was stil having the shakes. I would never want to be walking around with cute hair and an ugly body, so now I have the shakes only before or after I workout.
No shampoo, no hair pins, no heat, no puffs... Just buns.

Almost MBL
I also drink shakes, one in the morning before work and usually a second one after my workout at night. I was using Five Star or something like that previously and it did a number on my stomach, so I switched to EAS and haven't had any issues. I use the vanilla and make smoothies and it actually tastes good.

Hmmm, I'm a Fitness buff and am actually gulping down a protein shake as I post.....I never really notice any difference. The one thing i can contribute to growth/length is LEAVING THE HAIR ALONE! Little manipulation and cleanliness.

I must admit the texture of my hair started to feel better within a few weeks and also noticed I wasn't dropping / losing as much hair and leaving it all over the bathroom floor!
Hmm I was drinking whey protein for my diet 2 months ago... I still have the 2lb. jar maybe I'll start using it again for my hair (assuming my brother has used it all yet!!) Lol
