Life Changes

For those of you that don’t know me, I am an extroverted introvert working as a corporate accountant. In a sense, I love social gatherings and one on one conversations, but I tend to be shy in new situations with big groups of people. I also crave alone time after a lot of social time to re-energize. This past year I have gone through so many life changes, including planning a wedding, getting married, leaving family and friends and moving across the country to Utah (homebody over here), starting a new job, making new friends, moving in with my husband, and living the mountain life. It’s been hard but so worth it! I fully trusted in God’s plan and it turned out to be so good! He has provided in more ways than I could imagine and I am so thankful prayers have been answered. I also started this personal blog last year, and that has been go good for me to stay connected to family and friends back home. I think my #1 fans are my Grandma’s, but I love that! I want to inspire people to follow their dreams even if it’s scary! That’s where the growth comes from.

Trust me, I didn’t always have this mind set. I grew up in a smaller Wisconsin town and went to college in the town right next door (Go Eagles!). I majored in Accounting and Finance and continued my career in the corporate world after graduation. I thought moving from WI to MN 3 hours away from home was a huge step! And it was for me, I met so many new people and started my career there. The corporate world has its ups and downs, but I have learned so much and it’s helped me grow to where I am today. 

Starting my own business and being creative always was a dream in the back of my mind, but I didn’t think it would actually happen. I made a conscious decision this year to go out of my comfort zone and try something that challenges me! I have been a swimmer for most of my life, so my hair has been damaged by chlorine for as long as I can remember. I’ve tried every salon brand and chlorine treatment out there, but nothing has brought my hair back to health. I used to have thick, full hair, and recently it’s gotten frizzy, dry, and thin. When my friend introduced me to new hair products, I was skeptical at first. I wasn’t sure I wanted to buy products that I had never heard of,  but I knew I needed something to help my hair get healthy again. I also loved that were naturally based, cruelty free, 100% vegan, and gluten free. She was also a swimmer with me in college and the products had improved her hair so much, so I decided to try it out. After the first few washes I could tell a difference, but now just a few months later I am noticing dramatic results. I love that you use so little of the product each wash instead of dousing your hair to make it smooth, so the products last much longer. I used to have greasy hair after a day or less because I was using so much conditioner to compensate for my dry and frizzy hair. Now I can go 2-3 days before I need to use dry shampoo (even after doing hot yoga everyday!). I wash my hair 2x a week and I am working up to 1x a week. It air drys so nice, the wave and curls I always wanted! It no longer is frizzy and out of control, and it holds a curl or stays straight when I style it until the next wash. I just do a touch up every morning or add a little dry shampoo if needed. I was already telling all of my friends about how my hair has improved, I thought why not help my girlfriends out and start a business of my own?

I am so excited to face fears and try something new that I am passionate about! I want people to feel confident about themselves and I am so excited to help women and men with their hair. Please reach out if you have any questions or want a free hair consult. I would love to help. The link is in my Instagram bio!

  1. Wow, Brooke! That is fantastic that you found something to really help you. And it’s always good to go out of your comfort zone. While my hair is not damaged, for the most part, It will be if I keep coloring it. What is the name of your product, and the cost? I may know some people who would benefit from this!

    1. Thank you! I would love to help you and your friends with a hair treatment plan. You can send me an email on my contact page and I will send you a free consultation that will recommend products based on hair type, damage, what results you want to see, etc. We can go into more detail about products and pricing from there.
