  • Great info. I will give this a try since my natural hair gets really, really dry so I hope this can help it somewhat.

  • first i would like to say thanks your website has been so very helpful to me, i have gone natural and trying to get my hair to grow. my is question is on the co wash do you rinse after or leave it in? the young lady never said in the video. also i have an 8 year old daughter and i have stopped relaxing her hair because they seem to make her hair fall out, i have been keeping her hair braided but she is ready for different styles. i stopped braiding with the weaves for the same reason, her hair is so soft it brakes off very bad,please help us. we are lovin our natural hair but im lost at what to do for the breakage and and extremly dry hair. thank you in advance

  • Every since i started doing this along with allowing my barber take off ends only, My hair has grown faster than it ever has. I love it.
