Default Check out this lady's hair site!

She has INCREDIBLE hair, and a book due out this fall. I am in awe. I read an interview where she said it took 5-6 years to grow her hair to this length.

yeah, she does have amazing hair! gorgeous. i like that she shows that once she learned how to take care of her hair....she was able to achieve a lot of length...which is proof that we can grow longer hair (if that's what we want) no matter what hair type we have.

However, our hair is it’s own unique entity. It does not want to be repressed. It does not want to be forced to look like someone else's hair. It wants to curl, and be it’s own creature- not an imitation. The moment we let it go, set it free, it blooms. It can finally be itself. If we can learn to embrace the hair we have, the hair we were born with, it will reward you many times over. The energy spent fighting it will be so much more constructively spent working with it instead. Both you and your hair will thrive.
Thank you so much for this link. She is so wise about her hair. What a journey. Almost, I am persuaded to buy a Denman D4

i know! i never realized how much the relaxer stunted my growth. i could never get to apl and i felt like i was doing everything right. even while i was transitioning, my hair didnt grow that fast. in the last 3 months since ive been all natural though, it has been growing like crazy. i havent measured, but est. 2 inches. her length is my new goal

That quote you got SBB is great. You should get a Denman. Just be warned it gives great culrs but you do get shrinkage!

Thanks for posting the link. She has great hair. However, that's way too much hair for me personally. If I get to shoulder length or even armpit length curly, It's time to start getting cuts. lol. I just gotta get there first lol.

LOL...well has anyone just set their hair just with conditioner? Her hair looks great, but she's more of a 3C.

What is everyone's opinion on the denman. I own a denman (great brush) but I dont use it to style it curly. It gives me super frizzy curls.

Last did anyone kind've screech at her product listing. lol

Oh I forgot to add why I quoted HN in the first place: Hair length! As of now with a bit past the shoulder wet hair...I hate how the product gets on my coats, car seat, etc...
I have always wondered how you manage hair that length. Looks beautiful, maintenance seems like such a pain.

ha...I did kinda go....ummm, those are not good products she's using. But i guess everyone's hair responds differently to certain ingredients. almost makes me wanna go get some of what she's using! (just kidding!)

about the denman....i can not use it to style my hair. it causes wayward curls that shrink right up to my scalp. i only like it for detangling.

Are we the pessimists here? lol. I think so. I totally did- especially the Pantene. The Herbal essence Moisture is great though.

I'm glad she found something that works for her she's a fantastic inspiration, but as for her techniques and products, Idk if I can apply them to me per say.

You don't like your denman? You're crazy, Cat. I've never heard of it making anyone's hair more frizzy. Hm. Maybe you just have weird hair.lol.

Yea the first time I went to her site, I went through her product listing. But honestly, even some people on this board SWEAR by cones, so I honestly think it's whatever works for you. She's obviously figured out what works for her.

Wow her hair is so beautiful. I could relate to her bad hair day stories so much. Thank God mine wasn't as horrible LOL A good friend of mine has similar hair to hers and its the same length, takes forever to dry and all that. I don't know if I'd want my hair THAT long but it would be really nice to try to achieve it.

Thank you for the link!

-ive set my hair with just conditioner before. well i take that back, conditioner and oil. but it turned out great and lasted until i washed it out.

-i like the denman. it gives me super great clumping and i use it whenever im not wearning my hair down.

-her product listing was...an eye opener to say the least. but everyone's hair is different. my hair laughs at the idea of not getting a trim for 10 yrs. but if she can handle it, more power to her. her hair is gorgeous.

That website is great.

I can relate to her hair struggle. I loved the photo journey. I felt like clapping at the end.

Wonder what the book is going to be like, because when I looked at her idea of a good hair product I cringed. It might work for her, but as a general rule silicone products are not the best products for curly hair as they can weigh the hair down. Maybe it's not the same for strong curls, maybe then you'd want to weigh it down. Still, distinguishing between hair types would make a better book, widening her take on products might also. It lacks research IMO... but maybe the book is different from the site, I don't know. Seems that she wants the book to reflect her personal journey, but on the site she makes these general recommendations that are very poor recommendations indeed... and the best site for curly hair isn't even mentioned in the links. I wonder if she even knows of this place, of the many articles on here.
