The issues with hair are more about the hair properties. Everyone has different properties what works for you might not work for me. Anytime blanket statements are made, here comes trouble. Bottom line...Wash and gos will work for anyone has long as your hair is properly maintained. Having said that, it may take time to find out what your properties are. When I first went "natural" it took me a good 6-9 months to figure out my holy grail.

3b, Medium-Coarse (slight coarse charactericstics), Normal porosity & Low elasticity per Curl Wizard Profile.
Low-poo: Nourish Shampoo
Co-wash: Suave, Vo5, HE, Aussie Moist
Deep Conditioner: GVP Conditioning Balm
Leave-in: Nourish Conditioner (Trader Joe's)
Stylers: LA Looks Sports, Coconut Oil, Almond Oil, Jojoba Oil.
Methods: Wet plop or pineapple at night, diffuse in the morning. Scrunch w/joboba, coconut or almond oil.
It's interesting you say that nappy hair is low porosity. I have type 3c/4a hair & I have a mix of low & high porosity hair. The front of head will dry faster than the back. Great points though. I agree my hair does best with wash & go styling.

I agree with all that you said. I know the poster made that to kind of make light of her frustration, but there are too many women who think this way and I really hate that a lot of youtubers, specifically '4c', support thinking with this mentality because it's simply not true. It doesn't help anyone figure out how to take care of their hair properly, it just makes them frustrated in the end.

I would take some of that information at face value as baking soda & apple cider vinegar can damage the hair. I've never used baking soda on my hair but I have used apple cider vinegar on my hair. Acv made my hair hard hard, turned it red & made it shed really bad. I've read here that baking soda can damage the hair.

People seem to think because a product is natural and/or it's been used for centuries it is a good product to use on the hair or body regardless of studies or formal research that indicates otherwise.

I use both vinegar and baking soda (not together) as household cleaners. The vinegar is often used diluted and the kind I use varies in whether I think one is going off or not.

People here don't like using sulphate shampoos because the sulphate is in detergents used to clean their house, but they are happy to use other substances which are equally as harsh and also good household cleaners.

Shampoos are formulated (and ingredients tested if you are in the EU) to ensure they are safe for both the skin and the hair.

I haven't had a hair analysis just a nightmare experience with acv. I've been thinking about getting one.
