Crisocolla: Guest Post with Cindy Suarez
As many of you know I coauthored an Amazon bestselling book two years ago called “The Silver Linings Storybook.” It was a collaboration of IIN graduates who shared stories or how they overcame difficulties and went on to share their experiences to help others in their work as health coaches. It was a wonderful experience and I made many friends. One of the coauthors I am still close with today is Cindy Suarez. She lives in Puerto Rico and her story is so inspiring. Cindy is the first deaf health coach I had met. She beams with enthusiasm and has created a business and a life she loves. She is soon to be married and has also begun creating products to share with her clients and friends. I want to give her a shout out today and let her tell you about Crisocolla Hair Mask, her latest product for health and wellness. We all want beautiful, full hair. Luscious locks are a sign of health and vitality. Many times hormone imbalances can show up as hair loss.

The Story behind the Hair Mask:
Made By Professional Health and Lifestyle Coach.
This product is guaranteed to be an all-natural product with no harmful material, designed by Cindy Suarez, the founder of Crisocolla.
Cindy is a certified Integrative Nutrition Health Coach and her personal story tells exactly why we should always avoid harmful ingredients.
I started to experience hair loss when I was nine-years-old. Every time I brushed my hair, more and more strands fell out. My story shows how I struggled with a very bad hair loss condition, and successfully regained hair with a treatment unlike any other.
It’s not just about what I did to regain my hair and stop hair loss, but also how I encouraged myself to never give up and keep finding the solution for my hair problem. Especially during the unbearable days when handfuls of hair fell out almost daily.
At first, I thought the reason behind this was because of drying my hair with an 80's version of a hair blower 3-4 times a week.
When I moved to Puerto Rico with my family, I continued to experience hair loss during my adolescent stage.
My mother decided to take me to a dermatologist. After several clinical examinations, Doctor Maldonado diagnosed me with low hemoglobin, due to monthly heavy menstrual flows that lasted more than a week; dandruff; and finally, prescribed me Rogaine for Women. He prescribed me a monthly supply of iron pills and suggested that I use Head & Shoulder for my dandruff. I took FerroPlex to boost hemoglobin every day, which led to daily, severe constipation as a secondary effect. I topically applied Rogaine on my scalp every single day. As I recall, I couldn’t interrupt the treatment and was instructed by my dermatologist to apply it every day or otherwise, I would lose my new hair within weeks.
After seven months of treatment, I started seeing less and less hair loss on a daily basis. I was happy, in spite of the fact of the time and expense, that it was initially working well. But I realized that Rogaine was hurting my health.
Although there was a high, monthly investment and required permanent use of Rogain hair treatment in order to keep my new hair, I started to experience non-stop itching, skin dry flakes behind my earlobes, and excessive dandruff. My dermatologist warned me that if I stopped Minoxidil, then all my hair will eventually fall out. I felt stuck with the treatment for several years despite experiencing side effects.
Dr. Maldonado suggested that I use any shampoo specifically created for dandruff. So I decided to try Head & Shoulders shampoo, but more and more hair was falling out. After several weeks of using the same shampoo, my hair continued to shed. My hair was still dry and frizzy.
I tried various shampoos like Clairol Herbal Essence, Neutrogena, T-Gel Therapeutic Shampoo, Mane ’n Tail, Paul Mitchell Tea Tree Oil, Selsun Blue, Nizoral and the list goes on. I’ve been doing this for more than a decade with no success as I continued searching for the right shampoo to stop hair loss and dandruff. None of the shampoos that I mentioned, including those prescribed, helped me.
The shampoos made my hair dry and difficult to manage. I even stopped using Rogaine, and yes, I started to lose great amounts of new hair every day. My hair strands were everywhere: in the bathtub, on the floors, on my clothes, on my pillow. I couldn’t stand looking at my brush because strands upon strands of hair were falling out at the slightest touch.
I cried… I even used to wash my hair only twice a week just to save my hair.
But observing a large mass of hair in the drain would lead me to wash my hair every single day assuming that dandruff has been ‘cured’. I just couldn’t figure it out. I just couldn’t understand how I could be suffering hair loss at a very young age. What I later discovered was that I have a family history of hair loss. My grandma, my aunts, uncles, my mother and even my brother – we all suffered the same problem.
How I Started My Holistic Lifestyle……and my Hair Problem Finally Disappeared.
Soon after my first gynecological surgery for endometrioma, my mother suggested that I would seek a naturopath. And I set up my first naturopathic appointment with Dr. Ruben Marchand. After examining my eyes through Iridology method, Dr. Marchand identified that I have excessive anxiety, another cyst on my right ovary, arthritis, active thyroid and guts that needed some healing.
I was very much in shock about what he saw through my iris because I have never revealed my health issues to him.
After a month of using several supplements and foods recommended by my doctor, I decided to investigate the health benefits of each ingredient contained in each supplement and food.
And then...I fell in love…
Yes, I fell in love with my new holistic lifestyle 💜.
I fell in love with everything related to wellness and health and even my new eating habits. I decided to become my own scientist and created my own treatments for my health issues. And then, I started creating the first holistic treatment that has successfully led me to stop hair loss and regain new hair.
I even lost weight. My hormones initially became normal and stable. My periods were once again regular lasting only 3 days every 28 days.
Fast forward, after I started studying health coaching, I began understanding more about the root causes of my hair loss and that natural supplements were not the only method to combat hair loss.
And this took exactly 90 days to see several strands popping out of my head. Not only that, my hair grew – and still is – dramatically faster, but also promoting lots of volume and thickness. Every day I received compliments about my hair, even from strangers.
