About Danni


Hi All! I am Danni and I am a staff writer here at BHI. I am a Graphic Design major and a long time resident of Washington DC. I have been on a healthy hair journey for 3 1/2 years. Within those years , I have went through a relaxed hair journey, a natural hair journey in which I big chopped twice(2nd big chop occurred in November 2013) texturized and now I have big chopped a THIRD TIME! I am 100% natural and here to stay. I am super excited to share information that I learn along the way to those who are just as into healthy hair care as I am and wish everyone best wishes on their healthy hair journey!

    Yes, I just started taking MSM pills. I didn’t know they help with hair. Yay, I’ll give an update in a month.

    I’ve actually can attest to the hair improvement w/ MSM, too. To be frank, my hair wasn’t the original reason I started taking it–I have bursitis in my left shoulder from messing it up in high school (over a decade ago…..meh, time sure as hell escapes me, lol) and after years of frustration w/ OTC pain killers not working as well (and NOT wanting to get into being too dependant on prescription ones, which I didn’t always have access to getting anyway), I looked up supplement help and ran across MSM.

    MSM is very good for inflammation and so that’s what I started using a few years ago. Funny thing is I kinda sorta read stuff on it about being good for hair and nails and the such but I didn’t think about that extensively at the time until one day (after taking a hiatus from heavy chemical processing of my hair–not say it was complete nature thing but it was certainly more nature than I used to do), when I decided to relax my hair again I noticed it was actually LONGER than I had had it in some time! And it even felt stronger and fuller! Plus, it’s also good on my allergies and sinuses (MSM is good for them, too!).

    I guess you can say I’m a devotee to the MSM, lol. I take about anywhere from 6,000mg to 12,000mg a day (I know the dosage sounds hella heavy, but usually this is a decent dosage for those of us that use it for inflammation and natural pain management)

    Well I take my multi-vitamin and I take Hairfinity. When I first started going natural my hair was weak and breaking and it was all sorts of bad, so I found Hairfinity and I took it and it made my hair, so much stronger, so it could grow and in a year ina half my hair went from above my ears to a touch past shoulder length. So I’m happy. MSM, I’m going to have to look that up.

    I took it for about 6 weeks at the end of the year and then started again a few weeks ago. I take high doses up to 10,000 mg which you have to work your way up to slowly which is where headaches and gas come in if you are not gradual in the increase. I don’t feel like it helps with hair growth for me or really much else as of yet. I did notice a huge difference during the few months I was off it. Lots of decreased energy. I take it because MSM is the third most common substance in your body and it is in 150 organs, yet most people are suffering from a depletion of it. Most people note an improvement in multiple illnesses and problems.
