Q: Does washing your hair really help growth?

Q: What does hair need more... Moisture or Protein?
A: Hair needs more moisture than protein.

Q: Should you take vitamins?
A: Yes! I'm anemic so I take an Iron supplement. So far, it's helping my hair. I had loss a lot a couple years ago when the anemia was at it's worst. You can take anything from Biotin, MSM, Horsetail, Prenatal Vits, etc.

Q: Does rinsing with cold water help hair?
A: Cold water seals the cuticle which keeps moisture in. This helps your hair stay soft and keeps bacteria and debris out of your hair.

Q: Should I drink water EVERY day?
A: YES! It's not only good for your hair, but also for your overall health.

Q: Why do my temples seem revert after a relaxer?
A: The temples/edges are a different texture than the rest of your hair. Plus it's exposed to water from daily facial washing.

Q: Which is better Lye or No-Lye?

I use Wave Nouveau and Elasta QP Mango Butter. If I'm bunning, I'll use Herbal Essences Long Term Relationship Leave-in. The Wave Nouveau is my favorite since it's lighter than the other two and it's designed specifically for textured hair. The other two I love for bunning and ponytails because I can slick my hair down and scarf it for a sleek, moisturized 'do. All keep my new growth feeling great. I hope this helps!
