As we near the end of October 2016, I figured I would share with you a few products from brands that support the Breast Cancer Awareness Campaign.  While Breast Cancer Awareness is widely publicized each year in the month of October, the fact is – this cancer and others do not discriminate and attack all times of the year so it’s important that we do our best to be aware of what is out there and support the cause in the best way possible.  “Think Pink” has been a way of supporting those we love and it can be done every day of the year, not just in October.  I have been touched by cancer many times in my life, after losing my uncle Allen (my dad’s brother) to Leukemia when I was just a baby, I remember how it has affected my family and Lung Cancer, ALS and Breast Cancer have all been contributions to loss in my family over the years.  It is something I whole-heartily support and awareness is important for everyone.  Today I’ll be sharing with you a few products and brands that support the Breast Cancer Awareness cause and campaign so that the next time you’re shopping, you can “think pink” too.

Travalo is one of my favorite girly beauty items.  It’s not your traditional makeup item, but I love scents and I love to smell good – so Travalo allows me to take my fragrance on the go with me.  This October, Travalo – the leader in travel fragrance options, has partnered with Bright Pink.  Bright Pink is on a mission to save women’s lives from breast and ovarian cancer by empowering them to live proactively at a young age.  Bright Pink is the only national non-profit organization focused on prevention and early detection of breast and ovarian cancer in young women.

In the month of October, 25% off all sales of the Travalo Excel, Class HD and Milano pink models will be donated to Bright Pink.  Consumers will be supporting Bright Pink’s goal to reach 52 million young women in the U.S. between the ages of 18 and 45, while continuing to have the ability to refill fragrances directly from a standard bottle through the patented and unrivaled Genie-S pump fill system from Travalo.

Another product I love and have raved about here on the blog over the last couple of months is WINK by Amalie.  #PinkWINK is a campaign I discussed here, and is part of their BOGO for the Cure Campaign.  For every bottle of WINK that is sold during the month of October, Amalie will donate one bottle to a cancer survivor to help them regrow their lashes and brows that are lost through chemotherapy.  This is one of my favorite campaigns for Breast Cancer Awareness because often times we don’t think about the challenges a survivor of breast cancer (or any cancer for that matter) will endure.  WINK is also one of my favorite beauty products as I have noticed huge results from using this product over the last 3-4 months.

While October is coming to an end in a few short days,  you still have some time to check out some of these sites and support the cause.  I am a believer that support for any type of charity or campaign should happen all year long and that’s why my family and I give back to these causes several times through out the year, but I think it’s awesome that companies do this too.  I have been easily discouraged over the years by other companies that have exploited the cause of these campaigns, but I’m thankful that there are some great ones out there for positive benefit of those that need it.  I have included items that I think would help make any woman (or man) feel wonderful and positive no matter their struggle.  Whether it be to help with strengthening and regrowing their hair or lashes/brows, pampering themselves after long hours of chemo and recovery, or bringing a little swagger with a signature scent… I think these brands offer great products with a great cause.   Help support the cause and consider these items when you are online shopping.

Thicker, Longer, Beautiful Hair - My Hair Story With Hair La Vie

Being born and raised in Hawaii, I have had long hair my entire life.  In my teen years, my hair was so long it came down to my knees.  It’s a part of my culture and having danced Hula for most of my childhood, it was kind of a necessity.  After having my eldest son (11 years ago), I noticed that my hair started thinning and was not as strong as it use to be in my younger years.  Then, having my twins almost 6 years ago left my hair in disarray and my hair was not only thinning near my hair line, but it was weak and it shed a lot.  I have also caused severe damage to my locks with excessive bleaching and processing, which caused my hair to be brittle as well.  Over the years I have tried many things to help with my hair – not necessarily for the growth of it since my hair grows quickly naturally, but to help with the strengthening of my locks.  While some worked, some didn’t and I continued on my hair journey to find the supplements, natural tonics and formulas that would help.  About 9 months ago I started using Hair La Vie Revitalizing Hair Blend and have noticed a huge difference in  how my hair feels, looks and how strong it is.  Today, I’m sharing with you my Hair Story and how Hair La Vie helped my hair journey.

Thicker, Longer, Beautiful Hair - My Hair Story With Hair La Vie

Over the last year I have been taking Hair La Vie from La Muse.  While I do not take it consistently, I probably have taken a total of 4 bottles over the course of the last 8 months or so,  I have tried to incorporate into my daily supplements.  This product is easy to swallow since it comes in a capsule that makes taking it simple and I take two capsules a day – one in the morning and one in the evening.  The pill is rather large, but swallowing it has never been an issue for me.  With ingredients like Vitamins A, B1, B2, B3, B6, Biotin and Folic Acid (to name a few), Hair La Vie offers a wide variety of beneficial ingredients to help promote longer, fuller hair with faster results.  My hair naturally grows quickly, so I do not necessarily notice much growth with this product, but I do notice how strong and full my hair has become over the last several months.

Thicker, Longer, Beautiful Hair - My Hair Story With Hair La Vie

Hair La Vie is formulated to be an all-natural product, with clinically proven ingredients.  It helps to repair and stimulate your hair’s growth from the inside out and leaves you with longer, fuller hair that grows faster than ever before.  This product is perfect for hair that has been cut too short, is damaged (like mine is from all the bleaching) and thinning or balding (which I have been experiencing from past pregnancies).  My hair not only looks and feels fuller and healthy but I love that I’m not pulling my hair out of the shower drain because I’ve noticed a huge decrease in shedding.

  • 20 all-natural, clinically proven ingredients
  • 1370mg proprietary active ingredient blend (highest on the market)
  • 5000mcg biotin (most competitors have 2500 or lower)
  • No synthetic fillers, binders, or additives

Last week I chopped off about 6 inches from my hair to allow for it to be healthy again and my curls to be revived.  After taking Hair La Vie the last month, I noticed that my hair is looking fuller once again and areas where my hair was thinning after pregnancy now look fuller.  While my hair grows rather quickly – I chop off about 6 inches every 4 months and it grows almost as fast, I noticed that over the years my hair shed a lot and my locks were not as thick as they once were due to pregnancy, age and just overall health and weather.  With the assistance of Hair La Vie, my locks are now stronger, have more bounce and are thicker and healthy looking.  I even noticed that my hair is much shinier than before.  My biggest improvement is the growth along the hair line.  Near my hair line by my temples of my head, I was experiencing receding after having my twins.  Thinning and receding were discussed in previous posts and you could noticeably see that there was a bald spot.  Look at the photo below… do you see a bald spot?  My hair line is full and filled in and where I had noticeable receding over the years is now but a memory – THANK YOU HAIR LA VIE.  This is the ONLY product that I have used that has filled in my hair line completely – after only 2 months of consistent use.  I noticed after the first month that my receding hair line was less visible and now two months after the constant use of Hair La Vie, I don’t even notice the bald spots and you wouldn’t either.

Hair La Vie Revitalizing Hair Blend is affordable.  I have tried different supplements that can retail for quite a hefty cost but that is not the case as a 30 day supply is just $39 and they offer discounts if you buy more than one.  Since I’ve noticed such a huge improvement in my hair, I will definitely continue using Hair La Vie to keep my hair looking and feeling healthy and to encourage healthy growth and strong locks.  I hope I can continue to keep Hair La Vie in my beauty regimen to promote healthy hair in my life.  Again, I have tried many products as well as taking regular Biotin, but Hair La Vie is my absolutely favorite.

Have you tried Hair La Vie products before?  If not, what hair supplements have you taken and have they worked for you in the past?

I have been told before that I am often at the end of hair envy from friends and family members, but like I’ve said in previous posts – I really did not embrace my crazy curly and long hair until a few short years ago.  Gone are the days of continuous heat to keep my hair straight in order to keep it down and now while I still love wearing my hair in a bun, I try to keep it down and long as much as possible.  But the upkeep of long hair is difficult and sometimes takes a toll on me and my ever evolving hair regimen.  Recently I dove into the hair supplement trend, testing out different products to see if they would meet my expectations.  Over the last year I have tried several different hair growth and rejuvenating supplements and I’m not gonna lie, they all have definitely improved the texture and overall appearance of my hair.  Over the last month my most recent test has been with the Hair La Vie Revitalizing Hair Blend and I’ve been pretty impressed so far with the results.

Hair La Vie Supplements


Formulated with all-natural ingredients to help repair and stimulate your hair’s growth from the inside out, Hair La Vie retails for $39 for a 30 day supply.  If you are looking to purchase more at any given time, they do offer discounted rates for more bottles.  La Muse’s Hair La Vie encourages hair repair and growth with it’s 16 all natural clinically proven ingredients that helps damaged, thinning and balding of your natural hair.  Suggested use is to take 2 capsules daily with meals – one in the morning and one in the evening.  The pills are a little larger than I like, so splitting them up and taking one capsule at a time really does make a difference.

Hair La Vie

Each capsule or the bottle when you open it up does have a scent to it (like that of vitamins) so if you are a bit sensitive to smell, you definitely want to keep that in mind.  They are easy to swallow which makes it easy to take and I like that they are made in the USA.

How Hair La Vie Works

Our special blend of antioxidants starts nourishing and cleansing your scalp by combining our vitamins B2, B3 and B6 with Pantothenic acid. Next, we repair damaged follicles and roots with B1,  folic acid, organic kelp powder and Saw Palmetto berry powder. Our MSM, vitamin A, horsetail herb powder and hydrolyzed collagen work together to help strengthen your hair and protect the cortex.

Hair La Vie includes key ingredients:  Vitamin A, Biotin, Folic Acid, Hydrolyzed Collagen, B Complex Vitamins, Vitamin B1, Vitamin B2, Vitamin B3 and B6, Pantothenic Acid, MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane), Kelp (Organic Kelp Extract), Saw Palmetto Berries, Horsetail (Equisetum Arvense) Herb, Bamboo Stem & Leaf Extract, Flax Seed Oil Powder and Borage Oil Powder.

Like most vitamin supplements, there is a slight after taste if you take too long to swallow the pill – though since I take vitamins on a daily basis – this did not affect me much.  I definitely suggest swallowing quickly and make sure you take this pill with a good amount of water.

Hair La Vie

The photos above are provided to show the progress of this product over the last month.  The one on the left was taken a few years ago, the one in the middle take about two weeks ago and the one on the right taken about two weeks ago as well.  A few years ago after the birth of my twins, while I always have had thinner hair near the temples of my hair line, it was quite noticeable.  Two weeks ago I took the other two photos and loved that I could see in the photos that my hair was thickening in that area as well as not looking so sparse.  While I do attribute to the fact that I have been keeping up with my hair regimens and supplements over the last year – I wanted to note that these products have all contributed to my hair being thicker in those areas.  I also love that I can see little hair in the hair line growing which makes it exciting to watch as it fills in.

Hair La Vie

Heredity, age, environment, hormones and even environment are contributors to thinning hair, lack of hair growth or even lack luster hair and sometimes everyone needs a little boost.  Hair La Vie products help your hair from inside your body – but I also find that the vitamins help your body as well.  My hair receives damage from being dyed and colored often but also because of my environment, past pregnancies and the fact that I can be a little more brutal on my hair than I should be.  These supplements have helped to strengthen my hair, minimize breakage and while I haven’t noticed much length, it definitely has helped in regrowth of hair in areas where I had been thinning.  What I love is that I haven’t noticed ANY additional or rapid growth in other areas of my body… i.e. Legs, underarms, facial hair or brows.  All of those areas that would normally start growing faster with supplements actually didn’t grow any faster than its normal growth rate – MAJOR PLUS.

Every La Muse product comes with a 90 day money back guarantee.  Also available to you for purchase from La Muse besides Hair La Vie is their Phyto Cera Cermide Capsules for skin and Certified Organic Moroccan Oil.
