I'm 25 living in a Illinois just trying to live my dreams
I used to dyed and bleached my hair alot in the past so I have had some slight hairloss but using this I have seen a big difference then what it used to be. I can see in some spots on where it’s growing back because of this. Like some products I have used before there isn’t an overpowering smell to it. To me it smells like coconut, which I love. Which also made my hair feel softer then what it was before. Also I love using a little bit in the hair dye while I mixing it so it won’t cause as much damage to my hair.

* Quinoa doesn’t just taste great, it also does wonders for your hair
* These hair products use the pseudocereal’s beneficial proteins and amino acids
* Options include protective mists, shampoos and hair oils
Known to ancient Incas as the “mother of all grains,” it’s little surprise that quinoa (keen-wah) has seen such an impressive rise in popularity recently. And while much of that rise has been diet related, it’s not exclusively so.
As a supergrain, quinoa is one of the most protein-filled food sources. And these proteins aren’t just good for eating. Numerous parts of the body can benefit from a healthy supply of powerful protein – including your hair.
Each one of these hair products utilizes quinoa’s impressive array of proteins to deliver care for your hair. This superfood has been shown to deliver shinier, stronger and smoother hair. It can also reduce damage at the same time.
With over 90% of Amazon users awarding the ONC Art of Care Quinoaplex R3 Hair Formula with 5 stars, you already know it must be doing something right. The ingredients, which include aloe vera, comfrey, quinoa protein and chamomile, actively work to repair your hair and reduce frizz, preventing split ends and increasing your hair’s general health. As an added bonus to the renewal formula, the quinoa proteins inside this formula have also been shown to to enter the hair shaft to reduce hair thinning in both men and women.

What is this quinoaplex I hear you ask? Well all is to be revealed. It is an innovative product from the USA that makes your hair healthier and has a rapid hair renewal formula too. Did you know your hair is about 85% protein? This protein is lost through colouring, sun, sea and over styling. Quinoaplex helps to naturally add the protein back into your hair.
My hair has always been a little rough. It is hard to maintain if I do not attack it with my ceramic hair straighteners. But using hair straighteners everyday is not doing it any good, in fact it’s making it worse – I get split ends quite frequently. Then, when I had the children my hair started to fall out and it changed quite dramatically. Before I had the children it was a lot thicker, it didn’t seem as frail either. I feel like I shed a lot of hair throughout pregnancy and it just didn’t get any better.
I have always been very lucky with my hair as my Uncle owns a very lovely hair Salon in East Molesey, they have looked after my hair since I was a teenager and I love going down there to be pampered. So does Isla too! I also get to see my Uncle which is nice. But I do not get down there as much as I used to, since I have had the children. It’s not as easy to up sticks and go to Surrey for the day, as it’s quite a drive. I needed a treatment that I could continue to use in-between hair salon appointments.
Then, I found out about Quinoaplex. My Uncle gave it the thumbs up, so I thought I would try it. The formula in Quinoaplex is made up of Quinoa as the protein composition is almost identical to our hair. It helps to regenerate hair and to repair it. My hair does feel very shiny and smooth since I have been using it. I also haven’t needed to straighten my hair every single morning too – so that’s saying something.
It has come all the way over from the USA and used in hair salons across the world. The idea is you use an amount that fits in the palm of your hand, use it after you have shampooed your hair. Towel dry and massage on the treatment. Try to leave it on for as long as you can, around 10-15 minutes is great. Wash it off and use a conditioner (this is what I do), then style your hair as normal. After a week of using the product I could feel a difference. As mentioned above, my hair felt stronger and smoother.
What treatments do you use on your hair? I would love to know on social media: @mummyconstant.

The ancient grain you know and love as quinoa is basically OG superfood status at this point. It’s undoubtedly in your go-to salad, lunch bowl, or dinner recipe due to its nutritional prowess—so, at a time when beauty labels are starting to be as clean as (healthy) nutrition labels, it comes as no surprise that the power grain is making its way to your personal care regimen. One way to incorporate it? In your hair-care routine.
At a time when beauty labels are starting to be as clean as (healthy) nutrition labels, it comes as no surprise that the power grain is making its way to your personal care regimen.
Take it from Boyce Clark, Ph.D., a biogeochemist-slash-single parent with a 12-year-old daughter who constantly struggled with frizzy hair. “A friend suggested a keratin straightening treatment, but when I saw it uses formaldehyde, that wasn’t something I was comfortable putting on my daughter,” he says.
So he did what any chemistry-savvy dad would do: Concocted a solution himself. Turns out the key ingredient for smooth, healthy hair was the power grain you know and love as quinoa. Makes sense, when you think about it (it’s a protein, after all).

The power of quinoa
Protein is a key factor in your own hair’s strength. Your strands are made out of keratin, which is a protein (in case you missed that in science class) so reinforcing it with another protein helps keep it strong.
“Quinoa is strengthening and moisturizing due to the amino acids content,” says Ginger King, a cosmetic chemist. “Amino acids are the building blocks of cells, so it’s essential for both skin and hair to function. It’s like nutritional supplements.”
Dr. Clark discovered it’s beneficial for hair once he saw how well it smoothed his daughter’s hair. “What I learned is that hair frizzes because moisture absorbs into the strands and then they swell,” he says. So he zeroed in on the power duo of quinoa and glycolic acid (the latter prevents your keratin from being able to absorb water and stave off the swell).
“Quinoa proteins add strength and protection to your hair.”
“Quinoa proteins add strength and protection to your hair,” says Dr. Clark. “Since the grain has the highest concentration of protein than any other grain, and it has [some of the] essential amino acids that your body can’t make on its own. When you walk around and let sunlight and oxygen interact with your strands, the outer layer of your hair becomes damaged—and the amino acids of quinoa match the natural keratin and fill in the gaps from that damage.”
He adds that the quinoa in products are hydrolyzed, which means they’ve been chemically cut into smaller pieces via enzymes. “The quinoa’s chopped up to the point where it matches perfectly with the keratin in your hair,” Dr. Clark explains. “So it’s really efficient when it comes to repair.”
Not only is it a superstar strengthener and smoothing VIP, but it’s good for your color as well. “Quinoa’s an antioxidant, which could help prevent your color from fading,” says King. Well, I don’t know about you, but the grain is no longer going to only be found in my lunch.

I am a protein junkie. I used to be a carb junkie but over the past 6 or so years that's changed dramatically. I don't know why exactly, but I suspect its because of the shift in my workouts from more cardio to more strength based. I think my body is just craving what it needs.
Apparently my hair needs protein too...

Another hair product that uses the protein power of quinoa is Quinoaplex by ONC! This is a treatment you can use once and immediately see an improvement. Everyone who colors their hair would be wise to use this, so that hair stays strong.
This product transforms hair when hydrolyzed and molecules are then small enough to get through the cuticles of the hair to penetrate into the hair shaft.
