    Default Tips for growing hair and keeping hair moisturized?

    I did the big chop back in March, Iím over relaxers for the last time. Iíve had them since middle school and Iím 18 now. Iím starting fresh and Iím honestly pretty awkward with my natural hair, especially with it being short and Iím not sure how to care for it and style it, all I know is to keep it moisturized but that gets difficult for me because my hair never seems to stay moisturized and it dries up very easily, especially my scalp which gets flaky.
    I decided that I want to grow it out and skip past the TWA phase by adding extensions to my hair via box braids. Will box braids help my hair grow? Would it be okay to have them reinstalled continuously period after period?
    And I have a very sensitive scalp, so Iím allergic to certain synthetic brands, I havenít come across hair that hasnít made me itch like crazy. I recently had some box braids installed with Xpression hair and my scalp was so irritated and I felt like I had lice or bugs in my head and I threw the hair away and had to baby my scalp afterwards, it was terrible. I even tried the ACV but that didnít help at all.
    I heard about this brand called Spetra or Spectra that claims to be itch free, has anyone tried that? If box braids wonít work for me then what alternative could I do to grow my hair?
    Sorry if itís a lot, I just have a lot of questions haha. Thanks.

    have you tried herbal remedies such as shea butter cream, fresh aloe vera gel or castor oil? I'm in the same boat as far as trying to keep my hair moisturized as my hair is VERY thick and eats up moisturizer quick so I have to constantly moisturize my hair otherwise it feels like I never did.

    I did a A LOT of research and found certain things that are all natural (meaning it's NOT processed or man0-made but comes from the natural environment) that have been proven to work for my hair.

    So I started making my own hair creams out of shea butter and using aloe vera gel (the inside of the aloe vera plant) to deep condition and moisturize my hair and it actually works. I have actually seen progress and my hair is more manageable too.

    I started my own YouTube channel showing how I made and used these products if you're interested in seeing it. My YouTube name is Holistic Beauty RN.

    I hope this helps and feel free to ask me questions-we're in this together!
