Oh I experienced just about the same thing. I was only a month into it, but my strands were easily over-moisturized and broke off much easier (think of how much easier hair breaks when it is wet). My...

Smile That's a lot like my routine.

You may want to stick to relaxed hair, but I would *really* recommend going natural. There have been ladies who have grown relaxed hair really long, but many find it easier when at their natural...

Exclamation Hiya

As for hair growth, I think if you...

Talking Henna Revived My Curls!

My hair has been giving me a talk every time I get out of the shower. It says, "Thank you for co-washing me, but I'm still mad that you tried to lighten my color last month. So I'm just going to go...

Oh, now I know whatcha mean! Lol, sorry. In theory, I think that's right. People have been using herbs to grow their hair faster for centuries, and they have lots of antifungal properties.

After my soccer practice this morning, I held my nose and gulped some down. :tongue7: I could still taste the berry flavor, but the bitter ick was gone. It's an old trick and a little uncomfortable,...

Well, I know that just applying coconut oil to the hair weighs it down because of the oil. If I put enough of it in, it will straighten my hair (although it appears greasy). Once I co-wash it out...

I have not had luck with perms.

I once got a perm in an attempt to get my 3a hair to corkscrew curls.
