    I've observed that my hair is a bit dryer than it was when I used to straighten bi-weekly... & using oils makes my hair feel clumpy & nasty within a few days. Not sure what to do about this.

    Products I use: Cantu shea butter, hawaiian silk spray, Jamaican castor oil, some other oil that I can't remember right now, creme of nature leave in conditioner, creme of nature shampoo, suave keratin conditioner, & Avanti silicon mix for my deep conditioning treatments.

    Ofcourse I don't use all at once, my staple products that I use throughout the week are the shea butter, creme of nature leave-in.[/quote]
    My hair is natural but I blow dry it and straighten it when I'm busy with school and work so I can only wash it once every week as opposed to washing it every other day when I leave it curly. I've noticed it started to get dry when I wash it often now that it summer, so I started putting EVOO for one hour prior to shampooing. I've also switched to Redken moisturizing shampoo and conditioners. It's a bit pricy but try to stack on the jumbo sizes when they put them on sale. It's well worth it and lasts long. Trust me I wash my hair two to three times a week unless it's straight. If you put oil, try to put it only on your scalp using a qtip over night and put a little drop on your palms and rub it around your hair. It will be nicely soft and moisturized in the morning with no clump or grease. I usually use the EVOO I cook with.

    I've been natural for a while now, however, I'm always looking for new products to try. There are some interesting products suggested. Can't wait to cop some.

    I thought there was a big ass natural hair thread up here but a search didnt turn it up? who started this thread? anyway recently I have noticed my hair thinning at the forefront of one side of my head it wasnt a big deal at first now I noticed that shit slowly spreading down the side to the back of my head. if it was happening on both sides I wouldnt give a fuck but it dont and I do

    I think I sleep on that side so Ima try to switch shit up and see what happens. anybody know something that can stop this help my hair grow back. google is saying surgery...I cant afford that.
