I was reading an old thread on BHM that got my attention. It was about how bacteria can stunt the growth of your hair. I thought it was interesting because it better explains why frequent washing can help your hair. Here's the original post:

Hay ladies, it's Sidney. I am a newbie but I have been lurking on this and other forums for more than a year. I want to address why MTG and Miconazole Nitrate do worK!

First of all, I tried MTG. And like many of you, I got patches of new hair growth. After being phased out by the funk, I decided to just use the sulfur oil.

Also, you know the ladies that co-wash all the time and get super growth, well here's why.

All the people who have chronic hair loss, usually have some type of persisting fungal or bacterial infection. MTG contains cade oil, which kills this bacteria and fungi. Helping the hair to grow. These nasty bacteria not only block your pores, inhibiting growth but they also can eat your hair! EeeW! so disgusting. (See the links below). They probably also secrete nasty toxins and wastes after they are done feeding off your scalp. They scalp is moist and is a great environment for them to thrive.

Also, look at women of other races. They wash their hair frequently, getting rid of these nasty microbes, and lo and behold, they have long hair. Black women wash less frequently. You ever had that nasty, stinky hair from not washing it, well that is a tale-tale sign that there is a fungus on your head.

Minonazale Nitrate is also antifungal, so it keeps the scalp clean and allows your hair to grow. Use sulfur? Well I just read online today that Fungi hate Sulfur and there is a sulfur containg product called "smelly soap" that is used to kill these fungi, hence MTG helps since it has cade oil and sulfur. By the way, if you are using MTG, u should shake it up to make sure the sulfur at the bottom is getting on your scalp. Well, this is just my two cents. sorry its soo long. Off to wash my hair, again!

This makes lots of sense. I know I personally, in the past, have fallen into a routine of ONLY washing my hair every two weeks (or longer;0/)when I went to the salon, Since making the effort to take better care of my mane, I realize now that if my scalp is itching or irritated, IT's Dirty! Duh! So now I wash it. I see the change in my hair already. I haven't been able to establish a regimen yet that involves baggying, co-washing, and the essentials, but with me washing, deep conditioning, and air drying weekly ,I see results. My 10 yr H.S. reunion is in April, I'm trying to hold out on relaxing till then. Wish me luck! If all else fails I have some Outre' Velvet Remi ready to be sewn!

I remember the days of only washing every two weeks. I would always get dandruff less than week after washing and didn't know why. But when I finally started my hair journey, I started co-washing and that not only eliminated the dandruff, but also helped boost my hair growth. And good luck by the way!
