    I soaked my hair in this stuff and it actually is moisturizing. Still, I don't think I will re-purchase after the second bottle.

    I did notice that my edges on the left side were broken off two weeks ago and they've grown back. Not sure if I would attribute that to xcel because I've only used it three times in two weeks. I think I'd attribute it to leaving my hair alone, genes, exercise and increased water

    I didn't realize this before, but I have comparison pics! They aren't great or straight on, but I hope they are encouraging to someone.

    1st Pic - January 2017 Puffy braid out hovering between my chin and shoulder
    2nd Pic - April 2017 Rained on braid out hovering between my shoulder and collarbone

    I am (very) inconsistent with my spraying, and I am on a ton of medication for two chronic illnesses. Two of the main side effects of the medications are malabsorption of nutrients and hair loss. I've been stuck at an uneven BSL for two years or so, but now I am a full MBL. I believe if you are a healthier person taking care of your hair diligently, Xcel may give you more impressive results.

    My mom is also on medication for a chronic illness and has had alopecia for ten years. She is seeing results! She prefers to use the cream but is inconsistent with the application. She does not have a regimen, but she inadvertently protective styles with wigs year round.

    Thanks for keeping this thread alive and happy spraying.

    Girls, I'm joining you. I received four bottles and I'll be spraying my left side edges twice per day.

    Edited to add photo: the extent of the damage is disguised by the braid and laying down the sparse longer hairs with gel. Btw this side is my better side :confused: (plz excuse the build-up)

    Applied Xcel, concentrating on my hairline. Followed up with Nature's Blessing pomade.

    Would you attribute that super long braided pony-tail photo , which you posted in another thread, to using the Xcel? Your hair is really pretty and long!

    @thatscuteright Oh, thank you! *blushing*

    @Chicoro Thank you! Yes, I believe Xcel + wigging for the first time took me over the BSL hump and thickened up the front half of my hair. I've left my hair alone before, (in twists using my own hair, bunning, or wearing a half wig) but the most noticeable growth came with the addition of Xcel. I'm looking for more wigs (u-parts or half wigs) that I can comfortably wear so I can keep spraying throughout the summer.

    I made my second order for the year. I go through about 2 bottles per month. I tend to spray 2x per day. This should be my last order for 2017. I have 2 unopened bottles which should get me through to the end of May, or beginning of June. Is it working for me? It seems like it is. I use the spray on my roots only. I've never purchased the cream.

    I thought I would straighten my hair in June or July of 2017. I've changed my mind for now. I think I will straighten in December. I trim my hair, when needed, in the braids. My favorite way to trim my hair is when it is heat straightened.

    Happy Spritzing!

    With my hair being up in one, I rarely take it down before wash day. Plus the spray really builds up on my scalp. I spritz my eyebrows more consistently than my scalp (every night) and I do notice more hairs there. They are still fine as ever (possibly even translucent), but there are definitely more eyebrow hairs. Yay!

    *copy and pasted this*

    UPDATE:

    Today marks one month since my first journey pic.

    And ummmmm.... I've gained 2 inches between April 8th and May 8th.

    I'm still in shock. If I didn't have the pics I wouldn't have believed it. :eek2:

    Routine:
    The only thing I do is put surge in my hair once or twice a day (missed around total 6 days).
    I wear wigs and wet my hair a lot.

    Hair:
    In first pic (April 8th) was in a flexi rod set.
    In the update (May 8th) I just flexi rod the back section to measure.
    I wanted to keep it all consistent so I can have reliable results.

    Anyways, here are the pics. Lemme know if I'm crazy or not lol

    @CheChe1881 you'll be hip in no time! Congrats! If I had got 2 inches I'd be jumping for joy. I think I got .5 inches this month.

    :lachen::lachen::lachen:Tell the truth! you were trying to get free shipping and take advantage of the 20% off. I too ordered 8 bottles for $50.88 over the weekend. I'm good for the rest of 2017.

    I'm on the fence about repurchasing as well. I've sprayed since 4/10 to 5/7 and my growth is pretty average. I was thinking maybe I need to give it 3 months to ‘kick in’ but CheChe's banging results after one month are making me think it's not going to work for me. I do think I notice thickening in my edges. So I'll give it that but idk.

    I've repurchased the cream and another bottle. I don't have comparasion pics bc I wasn't using it consistently prior to beginning of March. I just took down a sew in from Feb 28th and my hair has grown 2.5 inches in that time frame. I have a lovely puff which I never had before. I can actually wear my hair out with pride because it's in puff status and pretty close to APL straightened.

    I'm about to wash and wig my hair up the rest of this month so let's see how this goes.

    Unfortunately, I ordered mine from the USA and the shipping is almost the same price as the actual product for me. Hence, this is why I order only 2 times per year, after I learned in which quantity and frequency I use the product. I order from House of Beauty.

    Well Ms. @Keen, I will have you know, that I did take advantage of the 20% off. But, I can't get free shipping because I'm in France and not in the US. That would be my truth! :cry3:

    For those of us across the water, at least in my case, shipping is almost the same amount as the products themselves. It seems that my area of Lyon, France, is about 1.5 to 2 years behind the market [for afro-textured hair products] in the United States. In addition, French women tend to follow and copy what is on YouTube, which is basically following what Black women in the United States are doing. This includes, processes, procedures and products: Triple P! Digression: Don't believe the hype! Folks may be trying to 'erase Black American women' in some areas, but on the world stage, YOU set the precedents, are looked at as leaders and are watched and admired from afar. As a matter of fact, somebody said to me, "The reason why the Americans beat the Russians into space is because America had Black women and Russia did not." I can't make this stuff up. I was like: :eek:! And, I DID NOT SAY A WORD, ya'll! :lachen: End of digression.

    So @Keen, Savor that 8 bottles for $50.88 price you got, because you really are able to purchase products for a steal! I'm not complaining, though. And nobody told me I had to buy these products! Things always seem to balance out in the end. But, please don't hesitate to gift me with a few free bottles if you feel the urge to do so. :)

    Thank you ladies :))

    I don't wanna jinx myself or be negative, but I feel like this is probably a one time spurt. I just can't imagine this happening consistently .

    Thank you miss. I honestly just wash/conditioned my hair maybe once a week or every 12-14 days. I wore wigs, just experimenting. Under my wigs I had two rows of braids. After that, I would spray my hair once or twice a day with surge. And I've missed a few days. That's really it.
