Like Chloe92us I wore my hair in a 24/7 ponytail before, it was breaking in certain areas (mechanical damage) with mega porous lengths (chemical damage). Once I realised quite how badly damaged my hair was I pretty much wrote the first year off and didn't expect good hair just focussed on growing out the worst of the damage.
Now my hair is massively healthier, the dye doesn't fade or build up, I can go months without needing a trim due to dry ends only due to unevenness. I receive compliments and think the volume of wave/ curl suits my pin head better!! Lastly my skin is healthier without sulphates, I haven't had atopic eczema or contact dermatitis in over two years, my face and scalp are less greasy.
Enjoying the journey to long healthy beautiful hair!
