Do supplements help hair growth?

The problem is that hair begins to fall out with age. I do not want to be bald and I try to prevent hair loss. Please tell me who has tried hair growth supplements like this one? Did it help you? Did you manage to stop the fallout?

Stuck in a hair rut?

This COVID lifestyle has really messed with my hair routine! So ok I got kind of lazy - zoom meetings meant I could pull my hair back every day and not worry about wearing the same hair style day after day... Not being able to browse the aisles of the local beauty store and try new things, spending money on stuff I DO NOT NEED online instead of stocking up on my regular hair products.

On the upside, the daily headwraps and scarves, much less manipulation and more "leaving it alone" has meant a surge in length retention. And if you have been doing what I have been doing, you may be noticing more length as well.

I think we all need to do some pampering. Get back into the groove and get yourself a deep conditioner or mask. I wrote an article on pampering our hair and I am going to link it here for some ideas that can help you flick out of the hair rut you may be in.

Try a new style, buy a new product, do something completely different, or go back to your style roots. This journey never ends.

Alt Ways to Use Hair Masks

Hello all,

I recently asked my cousin what products I should use to help me grow my afro :D and she gave me a few recommendations. 1 product I invested in was TGIN Honey Miracle Hair Mask. But it recommends I use a dryer after applying it, I don't own one, I've seen people recommend using a plastic cap as well...which I also don't own.

To make a long story short I'm 25 and just now learning how to take care of my hair /:

Can I let a hair mask air dry, or should I wait until I go out and get a plastic cap?

Thank you,

Organic/natural hair dye

Hi there

Can anyone recommend any hair dye with natural ingredients? I'm wanting to color my hair in a burgundy color. Most of the ladies on YouTube use L'Oréal hair dye but it has a lot of chemicals.

Thanks in advance for the replies :)

Super scalp oil????

Hey all my beautiful naturals!
im really big on jam packing my hair with nutrients so it has no choice but to grow. While doing my weekly googling for oils and herbs to infuse in the oils. I found this product that has an INSANE (almost unbelievable) amount of ingredients that live on my “saw on natural YouTube, maybe i should buy” list.
pumpkin seed oil
soursop oil
seamoss oil
black seed oil

I’m wondering if anyone has heard of this brand because baby!!!!!! I want these ingredients SIS! They seem to be just starting out, so i really need to know the tea, if anyone has tried them, as we ALL know how it can be sometimes. I tracked down their website and it’s ALREADY promising because it’s a .com haha
the website is www.IRLSKIN.com
i dont see actually skin products but they do say ‘scalp is skin’

I do have high hopes though. I hope to hear from you ladies ummm cus THIS INGREDIENT LIST CHILE!

The Best Type 4 Hair Wash Day Routine

I recently discovered the best and fastest way (that I know of) to manage type 4 hair, especially 4c hair like mine.

This routine is easy, simple and good for length retention.

I should have known it sooner but unfortunately, I didn't and many people don't do this.

No products needed-except for shampoo and oil.
No brushes needed or combs.


I've posted a video on my channel that explains the steps of this routine:

It's been life-changing for me, and I recently told my Mum about it and she liked it too and it looks like she will continue with it.

Chebe products?

Hi, all. I hope everyone is safe and sound as things are crazy right now between this pandemic and everything else going on.

I found a new thing on Instagram (IG). IG is now a new place for companies to advertise their various beauty products. I saw an add for some hair butter made with chebe powder. According to that add and other stuff that I looked up, it's a powder that's used on the hair of women in Chad. Here is a post talking about it: https://www.byrdie.com/chebe-powder-hair-growth-4773123

The images I saw are great, so I figured why not? I ordered some chebe butter during the Thanksgiving sales. The site isn't the slickest, but if the product works, I don't care. Tonight I used it to twist my hair after showering.

The tingle feels great, and if I get just half of the results that people claim, I'll be happy.

Has anyone else heard about or used chebe powder, butters, or oils?

Hi - I'm new to the forum. I've been natural since I grew out my perm in 2009. Most people still think I have a perm because I flat iron my hair, which I believe is between a 3c/4a. I only flat iron my hair once every two weeks and I am seeking new ways to get my hair healthier. I've been using aloe vera and castor oil for the last few months. I discovered about two months ago that if I braided my hair in small sections after I washed it that I didn't have to use the dryer because it will dry by the morning. I was really happy about this because I know that the less heat you have in your hair, the more healthy it will be. Eventually, I would like to find more styles to wear my hair in its natural state. I'm here to find out more tips.

TEXTURIZER IN 4C HAIR didn’t keep the curls?

I applied a Texturizer with lye to my 4C hair, it turned to (Jheri curl) like curls while the Texturizer was in there. I was extremely satisfied with the results so I rinsed it out. Even when I applied the shampoo it was still very loose curls. HOWEVER, once I used the conditioner NEARLY all of the results(curls) went away. My 4c hair definitely has reduced shrinkage since, but not the results I expected or EVEN SAW in my Hair. What did I do wrong? Is there any way I can keep the loose curls I had? -My hair is 7inches -I am a male. -it was my first time doing it. Responses appreciated!

Lock Journey, 1, 2, 3, 4.... Drop Your Knowledge!

What have you learned in your different lock journeys that could help someone else?

This summer I hit 7 yrs Sisterlocked. Previously, as many on this site know, I was 6 yrs Braid-locked (06-13).
I've learned alot. But here are some highlights:

Chill on the food products in your hair (ie. honey is ok but when combined with other products, honey can create a breeding ground for 'stuff and kill your locks, be careful...inbox for details).Rosewater or filtered water is better than aloe vera juice to moisturize locks.Less is best. Diluted shampoo, a dab of VitE and some water can bless your whole lock journey. Chill on products.Sisterlocks CAN be maintained DIY from day 1. I did it, experiment successful.Cover your hair when you can.My mature Sisterlocks are lighter, dont cause neck pain. My Braidlocks hurt my neck at that stage.My grey doesn't integrate well into my locks, all good though.The locking process is significantly different for different installation foundations. It's been quite a different journeyBanding really is important for SLs during the first 2-3 months.I cut locks to shoulder length for first 6 yrs....now, just letting them grow down my back again. My locks fit better in my bike helmet that way.

For me, life really is really more peaceful with locks and ....
more later.

Miss ya'll
