Celebrity hairstylist, Sabrina Porsche, selected Save Me From Product Overload to prep Shay Mitchell's natural hair for her post-pregnancy photo shoot hairstyle that included 39 inch hair extensions and bangs!
Shay Mitchell shares her journey as a new mom in a YouTube video sharing a sneak peek of behind the scenes of the shoot, "once you transform into a parent you can never "go back" to the person you were before...it is THE BEST experience, but can be very easy to forget about yourself and taking that crucial time to fill your own cup."
Shay continues "At the end of last year - with a year of parenting under my belt and a half year in quarantine - I started feeling just super blah. I realized I was no longer taking the time for myself to do the things that I enjoyed just for me. Amongst those things were working out and eating healthy…So I decided to take on a fitness challenge called Four Weeks of Focus, a four-week fitness challenge, with the intention to improve my physical and mental wellbeing. And at the end of the month, I was SO proud of myself and what I had achieved."
In celebration for Shay's hard work improving her physical and mental wellbeing, she decided to have a photoshoot, with some of her talented + best friends, bringing to life the best version of herself, taking care of her own needs, and not looking back at the person she used to be and "snapping forward to this new person that I am."
To celebrate these photos + Mental Health Awareness month in May, Shay Mitchell teamed up with non-profit SAD GIRLS CLUB, to create exclusive pieces of merchandise with all proceeds donated to help Black, non-black POC, and other underserved communities who are battling mental illnesses.
