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?
Source I ran out of my rosewater and glycerin pre-mixed spray, so I decided to make my own this time. I purchased Frontier vegetable glycerin and Alwadi rosewater. I used a 4 oz. bottle, put 2 parts rosewater, 1 part aloe vera juice, and about 1 tbs. of glycerin. If you plan to try it, you can play around and do variations to find what does well with your coils. Do not use too much glycerin unless you want sticky hair! Be sure to refrigerate afterwards. This spritzer is a great way to add moisture to your hair between washes. Today I am using it to do dry twists. If you try it, come back and let me know how it worked out for you and your recipe used! Glycerin is great for your hair because it attracts water and water=moisture. Rose water increases bloodflow to the scalp, which promotes hair growth.
Twist Out Pre-Poo I spray Infusium Pro-Vitamin Leave in Hair Treatment to my dry hair and apply warm EVOO from roots to ends. I cover with a shower cap and leave on for a few hours (if time permits). Shampoo Wash hair using Hair One Cleansing Conditioner (Olive Oil). I usually do my process in the shower.
