Love her hair

Chelbie Thompson

She was one of the first black hair gurus that I looked up to as a teen and such. Glad to see this.

Well the only time my hair gets long is while pregnant. Once my hormones balance my hair breaks off seems like 500 strands a day. And not amount of oil really works. I became natural in August. Everything has been okay… however now I can’t get the deep conditioner to take… so the oil is jyst getting on my hair and not absorbing.

Can anyone help me out with this?

Are you deep conditioning with heat. It sounds like you have low porosity hair.

Felicia Hamilton

Yes I do, up until last month it worked fine and now the heat isn’t making a difference.

How long since you first started using heat to DC? And what heat are we talking about, a hooded dryer, a heat cap or steam? Steam tends to work the best. Also my sister had very low porosity hair before she started caring for it and it took us two full months of weekly DC’s 1 hour each with heat to get her hair to normal porosity levels where it gets appropriately soft with conditioner it it and absorbs a reasonable amount of conditioner. In my experience, patience and consistency is key. You can always switch up to DCing less often after normal porosity is reached but if your hair is naturally low porosity, you may always have to deep condition more than those with normal porosity hair. Also bear in mind that if you have very fine strands it can only absorb so much!

Hello I was wondering do y’all have anything for a 2 year old with dry thick hair?

Felicia Hamilton

when my daughter was 2 B&B oil moisturizer worked great, when she turned 5 I have to switch to Organics olive oil moisturizer.

My relaxer stretch ends this week. I look forward to incorporating some of this regimen into my own! I am very interested in trying the tip about liberally applying a leave in conditioner and then air drying.
