    Hello, I am excited to be a part of this community.
    I've always wanted long healthy hair but could never kick my addiction to bleaching and dyeing. I was never content with my hair as it's incredibly unruly and medusa-like. I thought changing the colour would make me like it more, but got bored quickly every time and ended up ruining my curl pattern from the constant changes. You truly don't know what you have until it's gone! I made a vow to never use bleach, dye, or direct heat again. Seeing all the beautiful natural hair on this site hopefully will be motivation for me to stop abusing it

    Welcome

    I took a look at some of your other posts, I think you should check out some threads about cowashing and honey, there may be some great ideas for you to experiment with for a new routine as you grow out your natural colour!

    I was where you are with dye many years ago, which is why it took me 10 years to reach classic length full virgin color (my hair is layered).

    It's not impossible, just keep your eye on what you want and don't let dye distract you. It's something you need to get out of your system, but the day when you can leave it all alone comes sooner than you think!
