Thread: Tailbone and longer - please share your hair care routine

    Default Re: Tailbone and longer - please share your hair care routine

    Itís been really interesting reading about peopleís routine...thanks!

    Iím going to preface my routine by stating that what got me to tailbone is different to what I do now that Iíve started on the LHC...before it was pretty much benign neglect - S/C with whatever I picked up at the shops, air dry and comb and then bundle it out of the way most days. Now, Iím experimenting a bit

    What is your current length? - 103cm or between tailbone & classic

    How do you wash your hair? (shampoo, CWC, CO, WO, other?) - mostly WO, though Iím occasionally using ACV or FRW or some herbal rinses

    How often do you wash your hair? - weekly-ish...as need or when Iím in the mood

    What are your favourite products? I tried Giovanni Nutrafix Hair Resonstructor once as a light protein trial and quite liked it, so Iíll keep going with it a bit. Iíve got some Garnier Hair Foods (Macadamia, Aloe) that I use occasionally, either wash out or leave in. Flaxseed gel was pretty cool for my waves & FRW was a surprising win for my hair too.

    What shampoo are you currently using (if you use shampoo)? None right now...I have a few unfinished bottles that I might use if I get build up happening.

    What conditioner are you currently using? Iíve got some Garnier Hair Foods (Macadamia, Aloe) that I use occasionally (or do these count as deep condition...I never know!

    Do you oil your hair? If yes, which oil/s do you use? No, but Iím interested to try...might raid my kitchen for some EVOO sometime soon...

    Do you use oil as a pre-poo treatment? Nope

    Do you deep condition your hair? If yes, what do you use? Does the Garnier hair foods left on for 10 mins count? Thatís as close as I get.

    How do you wear your hair on most days? Usually in some bun with a hair stick or paintbrush. I usually wear a hat when outdoors, too

    Do you only air-dry your hair? Yup...too lazy to do anything else.

    Do you use sulphates? I used to...I think my hair is happier without

    Do you use cones? Ditto, though my hair was quite happy with silicones, but without using sulphates I donít want build up.

    Comb or brush? Mostly wooden comb. I just got a tangle teezer type to try out and I have a BBB that I occasionally use

    Your top tip for growing to tailbone or longer? Donít fight you hair...just let it do its thing. I think for me air drying and keeping it out of the way in a bun have been the best thing for keeping it happy.
    Letting my hair do whatever it wants to do!

    I think I have read about 30 of these responses so far... I have come to the sad conclusion all I have to do to grow my hair is to ignore my it, put it up, and it will grow.... No magical supplement or oil sadly.

    Ah, but it's so much fun experimenting until you find your favourite way of treating and then leaving it be
