    Default Questions that don't deserve their own thread

    Thread for anyone with questions that don't deserve their own thread.

    My questions:

    Would henna do anything for my black hair other than pigment it? Will it condition it or something?

    If I wanted to experiment with silicones would it ruin my 10 years of sulfate and cone free?

    People who experience permanent, irreparable damage from silicones are few and far between. That is extremely unlikely. If it doesn't work for you, you can just wash them off wish a sulfate shampoo and go back to silicone and sulfate free.

    Silicones are not a death sentence. As said above, quick sulfate wash, a deep condition if you're really concerned, and you'll be on your way.

    Henna might make your hair feel nicer, that really depends on the person. Color-wise the most you'll get is a red sheen. But a lot of people like how it makes their hair feel.

    Waist-length, and (grudgingly) rocking the fairytale ends. Hoping for hip by the end of 2019 with at least a semi-decent hemline. Ultimate goal of TBL...or longer.

    Henna might make your hair feel a bit thicker and a bit shinier.

    Henna always gave me thicker, glossy, frizz-less hair, so I always sing its praises to anyone aware of what kind of commitment It Is

    Silicones are way less commitment, my hair does not like them but no hurt in trying.

    Question from me: a friend told me their hair started growing a little quicker by crushing birth control pills into a powder then adding it to their shampoo will be curious to what you all think of that

    Can hormones be absorbed through skin? Not sure.
    Feels like placebo, and considering the price and potential side effects of hormone-based treatments I'm not sure it's worth to try...

    Five years ago the Monistat thread was still active. Many girls used that medicine to get faster growth. I've always wondered if the trend stopped due to any side effects, or if it just went casually silent...

    Well, since birth control comes in a skin patch form, I would say yes, and that it would REALLY mess up dosage, and be a terrible idea.
