from long to short hair......HELP
Hi everyone this is first time here and I am hoping this site fits me.......I been natural since december 16, 2011....... This journey has its ups and downs.....this is my third attempt and I finally did my big
chop so there is no going back......
My regime now is wearing protective styles..... Right now its wigs..... I decided in order to have less manipulation I will braid my hair in small single braid but not to small and leave it for a whole
month ......I wash ( with my African black soap )and deep condition every week ( coconut oil, coconut milk, honey, shea butter cholesterol) for no less than one hour....I want to know is that healthy?????.......(to leave my hair braided naturally for that long)
S.N: my wig is not glued so I remove it every time before bed......
My daily moisturizer: water and apple cider vinegar( in a stay bottle for a balanced ph, moisture and to keep it clean in between washes).......aloe vera concoction ( shea butter, aloe vera gel, coconut oil, tea tree oil) to seal in the moisture, protect my hair
and keep it healthy..... I would like to know is my regime healthy for my hair....
Every tuesday and thursday I use castor oil and mega tek rebuilder on the scalp only........
Internally I am currently taking hairfinity pills and trying to drink
plenty of water, I workout when I can and try to keep away from junk
