Hi and welcome to VirginHair.Inc.com , I want to share my story with you and I know there is nothing strange about it because I know a lot of ladies have done the same. I decided to go natural and had my Big Chop (Cut off my hair) back in Feb, 2007 (before then i had a perm since the age of 5 and i only remember all my sister being sad that my mum relaxed my beautiful already soft hair), I was loving my short hair and I had fun with it. I was able to grow my hair back to shoulder length in less than 18months, this growth came with no effort and that is what I thought having natural hair meant, that your hair will grow no matter what since the damage from relaxer was no more, well as you know I could not be more wrong. After moving to a more humid environment I was washing my hair more than once a week after every 2-3 days, this was too much for my hair, it made my hair very dry and my hair was breaking at an alarming rate. I blamed it on my natural hair comparing it to my relaxed hair (that is limp, scanty and “tamed" AKA damage and restructured) and I believed it soaks up more product and hence it is dry no matter what I put in it. Mind you I was using a 100% cotton (woolly cotton) to wrap my hair at night, how stupid of me. (If you don't know, cotton scarf or hats soaks up moisture from the hair-effectively). I deep conditioned with a medium protein DC any time I deep conditioned at all, which I suspect (too much protein and super lack of moisture) contributed to that super breakage. I didn't moisturize and seal daily plus I didn't have a good leave in or moisturizer to begin with, my breakage problem began in late Sept, 2008. I decided I would not be able to take care of my very curly very dry hair that God gave me. I relaxed my hair in Jan, 2009 what a setback and mistake, my hair is not damaged Yet but I don't like it. As at yesterday I decided I want out again and this time I’m going to do it right. I want toinviteeverybody with a similar story or interest to join me at VirginHair.comand let's do this together. I will be sharing information and tips to help us all and I hope you all will do the same
