Still have alot to learn

Post by dove » Mon Nov 13, 2017 4:39 am

Hi did dread extensions 8 months back and removed them after like four months.Havent relaxed my hair from then on.My one year old has amazing curly hair so when i tried getting products that worked for her i realised they could also work for me so been getting crazy with this naturally drive.However i have failed to just wear out my hair and we dont really have alot of products in UG.Even the DIY for styling products aint many but hoping to get a styling gel to enjoy my TWA .It is then that i will cut off my relaxed tips but for now wigs will have to do.

Wigs and extensions can be good for giving your hair a break, but relying on them will not do you any good. In fact, you can get traction alopecia. Try simple styles like two strand twists or hair buns with your own hair. Also for a styling gel, have you tried making some with flax seeds?
