Natural Hair Questions: September 2, 2011

Deets after the jump!

Please ask additional questions on the channel moderator! 🙂

Questions addressed in this vid include:

1. Have you ever used Suave’s Almond Shea Butter conditioner? I wanted to use it as a co-wash conditioner and was wondering if you’ve ever used it and if so, what were your thoughts on it? Thanks!
2. I value your opinion greatly and would like to know if you think that is better to transition for a long period or to just get it over and chop? I know this is an ongoing debate, but would love to know your stand on it. Thank you for your help.
3. What are your thoughts on Black Tea rinses? Have you done any do they work etc?
4. Any reviews or thoughts on using Castile Soap as a Shampoo?
5. My hair is 7 inches. I want to get to 12 inches by April. I am trying cornrolls (which I hate!) to give me some extra pull for the inches as well taking Hairfinity. What else can I do to achieve the length and volume? Also what do you think of Hairfinity?
6. Yesterday I left the house far earlier than usual and it was super foggy. When I arrived at work my hair had become an enormous, damp frizzy mess. I spent the day running around with puffy hair. Any tricks you have to fix midday frizzies?

  1. Chopping off curly hair is not the answer, hair also need the TLC treatment to get the best of our crowning glory and taking care of it is also like taking care of your health and beauty. Just moisturize it and have it renewed everyday to give “glory” to the crown.

  2. I never chopped off my hair. I think it would be so horrifying and I’ve never relaxed it to begin with, so I don’t have the whole two textures going on. I think taking out the weave and doing a good hot oil treatment will start the journey. I never used weave. But I have seen women cut off all their hair and emerge a year or so later with the healthiest, loveliest hair!

  3. I use that Suave condish when I cowash throughout the week, not to actually cleanse. I like it a lot though. It leaves my hair feeling soft.

    I also do tea rinses. Since I cleanse with Bentonite clay, I mix it up with green tea, which is more alkaline than black tea, and black tea only has a pH of around 5.5, I use the extra tea as a final rinse. I have to say, I do see less shed hair than I normally do.
