@missmarchmommy: My stylist has been trying to get me to go natural for years but I can’t. I was getting a relaxer once every 3 months or so and now I have pushed it back to once every 6 months and hope that I can get to the point of once a year…lol I don’t know if that can happen! My hair does not look any different but it has to be professionally flat ironed. I can make it look fair but not silky straight like they do at the salon. How long did you stay natural?

@missmarchmommy: I’m on Ft. Carson!  My hair actually retains a lottt of moisture, and I’m hardly ever outside lol. But I use Cantu shea butter leave in conditioner, coconut oil, and shea moisture curl enhancing smoothie when I want to style it..

You are both superheros because I can’t even think of TRYING to go natural. I’ve had my hair relaxed forever and workout 5 times a week… CAN’T EVEN IMAGINE!!!

Kudos to you both

@missmarchmommy: Have you tried the Nexxus Emergency? It stops breakage and is the best on the market that I have tried. Also, I only use organic jojoba oil on my hair. Its great and does not have a lot of junk in it like the other oils. When I leave the salon I put a dime size about on my edges and massage through the hair and thats it. I also use it once a month for a deep treatment. Its also great for this dry winter skin. Look at it on Amazon they both have stellar reviews.

Your son is adorable!

@missmarchmommy: Fire Marshall Bill!!!!!!lol. Once I tried the Nexxus Emergency breakage treatment, Nexxus Pro Mend shampoo with the Nexxus Hydrating Conditioner/Creme with the combination of organic jojoba oil for a little shine I promise my hair is growing like crazy. It looks like my young college hair before I cut it all off. However, I only flat iron it twice a month and rarely put heat on it between appointments. Good luck!

I do a mean Fire Marshall Bill impersonation Laughing

I am HAIR LAZY so natural is way too much for me. I barely call to schedule for my relaxer (and I’m every 6 weeks). OH CRAP… I need to call right now to get an appointment for next week. Thank goodness this topic came up!!!
