Since you are no stranger to heat, twist your wet hair & blow dry your roots a little. Then unravel. Now by no means am I giving you healthy hair advice. But you didn't come here for that now did you?

Now, can someone help me with my problem. Every month I paint my nails, but by the end of the month the base is plain/normal and only the ends are coloured! I've tried all different brands and even a good topcoat, but the base of my nails never matches the rest! What can I do to stop this happening or make my nails stay all one colour forever?? I've been painting my nails monthly for 20+ years, so I don't know why the base doesn't match. Anybody...?
LOL!!! Exactly!
neither of you @$$holes had to respond to my post AT ALL. you can keep your responses and save your rudeness for someone else. we're all here for HELP, not for people like you to be asses!
Umm hold up. First of all you need to get a grip. You have no right calling people names or getting rude or ignorant with people because you don't like the responses or someone laughed at your poor behavior/temper tantrum. If you cannot handle that, I suggest you go somewhere else or come correct at people. Grow up! You are the one who is asking for help. So either ask the question correctly (seeing that no one is obligated in answering you at all) or leave, but stop being childish because you haven't heard what you want to hear. And the answer is not going to change-- the only way to loosen (straighten) you roots is with some kind of chemical or treatment. So it's up to you what you think your hair/scalp can handle (relaxer/texturizer/flat ironing). And FYI the bickering stops here. Have a good day.

My question to you is why would you want to continue to damage your hair for the sake of a looser curl pattern? The thought makes me cringe. You clearly are 4a/b all over with patches of heat damage. Your 'unmanageable scalp' is clearly trying to tell you something; that that is how your hair is meant to be all over. Keep in mind that if you attempt to relax/texturize your roots, as you wash it out it will process the already damaged ends as well, making a bigger mess.


The only advice I can give you, (which goes against everything I stand for) is to keep heat damaging your hair for that looser pattern you want.

I must be psychic. I knew this is how this topic was gonna go. SMH.

In the future, all "texture loosening" topics should be posted in the Straightening forum. I know you want it loose, not straight, but you're likely to get a "helpful" answer there than here for such a topic.

Good luck.

I think people here were trying to be helpful before she made it nasty with her comment. Common sense should tell a person that to go from 4a 4b to a 3b then you either have to either put a chemical ( relaxer or bkt or whatever) in it or fry the hell out of your hair to heat train/damage it. I don't think going to the straight section will yield any other responses but I wish her all the best. And I can't wait to see this henna that will take you from 4b to 3b.

You did get helpful answers. Keep heat damaging your roots as they grow in. You're just not as nearly as informed about hair care so you aren't able to appreciate the advice that you've been provided with. Naturallycurly is a hair forum...not answers yahoo. You can't control what people post...the advice they provide or the existance of a thread once you post it, and you can't be rude or nasty towards people for no apparent reason.

Keep heat damaging your roots as they grow in or texturize it. Henna is not a replacement for heat damged hair or texturizers and even if you use henna you will still have to constantly do your roots no different than you heat damaging. You won't be satisfied anyway because henna is not capable of turning 4a/b hair to 3a/3b....for what you want it most likely won't work. Unfortunately God didn't give you hair that grows loosely from your scalp so you'll have to either get over it or take the helpful advice provided to you above.

LoL at the "screws loose" tag for this post! My first thought when reading the original post was "uh oh, troll!"

If she does use henna and it does loosen her pattern...doesn't she realize the ends will be even more loosened therefore the different patterns will still be visible? Unless of course one hennas just their roots

That's to say if henna did loosen curl pattern significantly, of course.
