Dream Shelf is a sneak peek at what clean beauty advocate and Pretty Well Beauty founder Jazmin Alvarez is currently obsessed with. It will include products from her personal holy grail collection, the chicest green packaging out there, and some ingestible beauty too, because quite frankly darling, beauty is an inside job.
This month for Dream Shelf, I’m sharing my experience with a product that’s very special to me. But first, I have to admit that when the company sent me this product, I was extremely skeptical about it. My hair journey has been a very interesting and complicated one with lots of twists and turns; I’ve been pursuing growing my hair back out after chopping it all off almost three years ago, and it’s been a long journey. Rewind back to about five months ago when I received a bottle of hair oil from a new brand called MFlorens.
My first dismissive thought was ‘oh, chic packaging but I doubt it’ll do anything for my hair.’ Still, I gave it a shot, because I literally try everything that’s sent to me. Fast-forward to present day and this product is 100% the real deal and hands down one of my favorite holy grail products. Not only did my hair grow like weeds (five inches in six months, ie. healthy hair grows an average of 1/4-1/2 inch per month), but it has improved the overall health of my scalp, too.
The founder and formulator of MFlorens, Mary Arutyunyan, created this product after years of suffering from alopecia. When none of her prescriptions were helping, she finally took matters into her own hands and spent years researching and testing organic, cold-pressed oils until she came up with the perfect blend she originally named OYL1. Now called No.1, MFlorens offers the original, which focuses on exfoliating and revitalizing, alongside the newly-released No. 2, which focuses on rejuvenating and regenerating, and both have made their way into my routine and my heart permanently — or until I reach my hair length goal.
MFlorens’ ingredients are sourced worldwide for their quality and purity and derived using time-honored extraction methods to preserve their efficacy and formulated through a proprietary blend and process.
