Thanks so much for the support! I'm definitely gonna give henna a try! i'm willing to try it all! I've noticed that my hair is very responsive to all oils: coconut, shea, and especially olive and argan. But my hair is way to porous in this state for any gel-type products like I previously used.

Yea I have been reading about transitioning hair timelines and realized that it's very similar to growing out this bleach damage. I just could never see myself doing a BC, super short curly hair just didn't look right on me.
