hey im new to this forum and new into the world of hair. Ive always had curly hair since i was a youngin and it has always been dry but somewhat manageable. Now in my late teen my hair has been really...really dry along with my scalp. I went around the internet to search for answers and tried a natural remedy such as almond oil but it only led to pimples on my scalp.
stumbled on this forum and found alot of info that was overwhelming, dunno much about shampoo or conditioner or moose etc along with the fact i have to avoid certain ingredients. I read something about just washing my hair with conditioner. Would someone assist a lost curly dude to formulate a regime.
^thanks a bunch
right now im planning on finding a good cowash regime. Looking for a nice conditioner and deep conditioner. will look for a conditioner with shea butter. Is there any specific ingredients i have to stay away from?
browsing other topics and i read i should stay away from
anything that ends in
I love Tresemme Naturals let us know how it works out. Also one thing that absolutely makes my hair super soft is a product called Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner...it's more expensive and has a pretty intense floral smell BUT it makes my afro super soft so maybe it's worth a try?
its pretty good but my hair is still dry. i heard naturals is also good as a leave in conditioner so ill try it as a leave in.
how do you wash your fro cause i went from conditioning everyday, to conditioning once every 2-3 days and my hair is somewhat still dry.
ill try that Aubrey Organics Honeysuckle Rose Conditioner
Well I only actually wash with shampoo once a week and try to only co-wash every other day after that. Usually with Tresemme Naturals or Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle Conditioner. Otherwise I'll spray my hair with a water, conditioner, oil mix everyday and use a pomade at least everyday to keep it moisturized.
Hair is still dry and not soft to the touch. Should I switch conditioners or add product to the hair
Never knew how frustrating this hair thing could get. I see why girls go crazy now
Are u sealing your hair? If not the cowashing probably isnt going to help. U said u were allergic to almond oil but another oil or shea butter might work. I started mixing my leave in with a little aloe vera juice and that is great. What shampoo do you use?
A black woman's fro is worth a million words- adthomas
nope, dont know what sealing is. I use tresseme naturals as posted above
enter the shower and make my hair damp with warm water. then i apply a dime size amount on my hands and rub it all over my palm/fingertips. Should i massage my scalp with my finger tips first, or should i apply it on my ends of my hair and comb it so it can get in my roots.
when i get out the shower i don't touch my hair at all and let it air dry. My hair becomes slightly shiny, but when it dries completely, you cant really run your fingers through it cause it is still coarse. they are defined curls, but coarse.
also, im starting to wash it every 3rd/4th day cause every other day still dries out my hair.
so far what i got down that is somewhat working
-condition every 3rd/4th day with tresseme naturals
-shampoo when hair is dirty
-every morning just rinse with water
imma experiment with castor oil shea butter etc as a sealer
