I have read and heard sooooo many different opinions, its all becoming a blur. Growing up I always heard "wash your hair every two weeks because washing dries it out" from everyone, so that is what I did. My hair was down to my bossom so I thought it was true.
In adulthood, I began hearing, "black women can wash their hair once a week but no more". Once I entered the natural world, my world was turned upside down! I start to see people say water = moisture and the more your hair receives, the better.
My hair has always grown in either situations, so my question is
Does it really matter whether or not you wash your hair every other day or every two weeks and does it effect how your hair grows?
This is such a late post but I just wanted to share my protective style of choice I have rocked this past few weeks. YouTube was my friend on 'how to' for this one. I used the invisible root method where you are twisting from the scalp instead of the braid/twist method. It took a minute to get used to, but once you catch on its not so bad. I used 4 packs of Marley Braid Hair with 2 different colors. I sectioned my hair in medium parts and used 2 strands of the marley hair to make it thick. If done quickly and nonstop, I think it would have taken me about 4 hours, but I procrastinated and split my time. I will definitely be using this style again .
Happy Birthday Bob!
Born in Jamaica, Nesta Robert Marley, a.k.a Bob Marley, was a singer, songwriter, and musician who helped introduce reggae to the world. His music had positive political influence in Jamaica at the time with messages of peace and unity. His music has sold more than 20 million records. His legacy continues to grow today.
I love trying new things with my hair, so I went online and started searching for fall protective styles. I came across all of these YouTube videos on Crochet Braids. Now, I didn't know people still did these and was thinking early 90's when I saw crochet. However, to my surprise, there were some fabulous styles and great tutorials.
I honestly cannot remember the brand of hair I used, but I was in searching for the Freetress brand in the Bohemian Curl. I couldn't locate it at my local hair supply store, so I picked out the equivalent in Water Wave Curl. I got two packs of 1b and one pack of 1b/30 blend.
