I think so. I'm a relatively new member, so wasn't around for some of the things I have seen mentioned. For example, I don't think they censor quite as much, even though many members still jokingly refer to relaxer as "chemical fire cream." Heat is still not an option there though.
The site was really useful for me for the first eight or so months after the BC. It really helped me grow confidence in my hair as it is. As someone who really did have deep-seated hair issues, I am grateful for the time I did spend there (and I may return if I ever go through another "hair slump" until I consider myself solid in my hair journey).
