Re: staightening and having a longer hair

Straightening wreaks havoc on Type 4 hair. It's OK to want your hair to look silky and long but you need to consider consequences of maintaining that unnatural look. There was a time when natural Type 4 hair was not an option in our culture. It was considered unkempt, undesirable for women to have u...

Re: Hair Type

So sad to read your words. You seem to have lost your humanity somewhere along your short journey in this life. Here is hoping that you regain some self respect and dignity in your struggle to define who you are. Unkind ugly words betray YOU, not those you seek to disparage. BTW the only fur I have ...

Proof's in the Nails

I wrote in another thread that I thought my hair growth spurt was due to Spirulina and Chlorella algae supplements that I started about a year ago. The proof is in! My finger nails have started to take off too. I have always had slow easy to break nails. I am having to file my nails like every 2-3 d...

Re: Nappy hair IS beautiful.

I love natural ethnic hair. I have been really into my natural hair the last three years trying to discover the best way to care for it without all the high maintenance that I began with 11 years ago. The one thing I notice with these exceptional beauties is the hair is very long and the look is ful...

Covering Gray With Henna and Indigo

I have not been using henna and indigo very long but the results are wonderful. I thought I would share this if anyone is thinking or wondering about indigo with henna. I am gray at the temples and nape of my neck. I tried henna to cover gray several years ago and gave up because it did not darken m...

Re: How can I regain my hairline ??

Just about everybody approaches hairline thinning from the outside. I have to say that I used to think that was the best way until the past year my BABY hair started filling in around my hairline and I did not have a clue until I noticed it close up in my magnifying mirror. I had not missed it until...

This picture is how my hair looks with unruly gray edges after using vitamin B5 in my hair lotion. It has taken my hair grooming to the next level. B5 and aloe
vera have changed the way I see my hair. Lack of know-how and knowledge was the issue not my hair.

Re: Vitamin B5 (Pantothenic Acid)

I edited this post from over 15 months ago because I found some updated data on panthenol and pantothenic acid. It turns out that panthenol which is Provitamin B5 is a precursor of pantothenic acid (Vitamin B5) which is what I have been using for over a year. According to what I read panthenol is a ...

Re: Hair Type

It is really hard to tell hair type by the ends after only 7 months. If you have had chemical processing, even heat styling will alter your natural pattern permanently. I thought that I was 4C because almost everybody who had natural hair on forums 9 years ago identified themselves 4C. My ends were ...

Re: Need Help:My hair is always dry:(

If your budget is tight and you need one thing that you can add to your routine that will punch up ALL your products I would suggest you go online and find ProVitamin B5 powder (panthenol). It is something that is in everything you buy on shelf for softer hair and skin. It acts like a humectant and ...
