Yeah. I've had one. I recently left my job, bought a house that we are working on, and my hair had been NEGLECTED!! I've been wearing it in a nice fluffy fro, that since transitioned into a dreaded up matted up MESS!!
To comb it out properly, I will lose length. No matter how careful, there will be damage. It's that BAD.
So after I finally pick out these matts, I am going on a nursing and growing phase. Not a challenge. I need to nurture my hair. DC, vitamins. The whole deal.
