    Default Hi Everyone!

    It's great to be here in this community. I'm Berley, a mother and nana who wishes to grow my hair for the first time in my life. Yes, that's right, the longest my hair has been before now was shoulder length.

    My hair is 2c/3a/F/ii, natural colour (also for the first time in many years). The overwhelming colour now is grey and I'm aiming to grow my hair to hip length and for it to be healthy.

    I look forward to reading information on the forum and am open to any advice on the best ways to keep my hair healthy while it grows.

    Just recently I have started to only wash my hair weekly instead of every other day, and have changed to a natural shampoo bar and conditioner bar. Any other tips?

    Howdy, nice to meet you! We actually have pretty similar hair types, it seems.

    So much about hair care is "your mileage may vary" kind of stuff. What works best for me is paying attention to how my hair behaves, keeping track of how it reacts to different kinds of treatment, and ignoring it whenever it isn't bothering me ( ;

    Welcome, welcome!

    I wash weekly too. I love it! No natural stuff here, though. I have SD (seborrheic dermatitis), and have to be careful with what touches my scalp. Tried to go more gentle & natural too, but that did not work out for me. YMMV (your mileage may vary). If you can do it, by all means, go for it!

    Try looking at the "Salt & Pepper" thread on the forum. It's a thread for those of us going gray, wanting to keep the gray around.

    Good luck & Happy growing!

    Hi, I'm new, too... had lurked around the site here and there for years whenever I wanted to learn about henna or Ficcare... Been doing CG for years. The weekly wash works best when I drink enough water!

    Hi Shelomit,

    Thanks for the advice. Yes, you're right about taking notice of how my hair behaves, I hate to admit it, but until recently I have taken my hair for granted.

    Hi Shterntikl,

    Water is something I try to drink a lot more of as well, and when I do drink enough I feel so much better physically as well.

    Hi CuteCrow,

    Thank you for the welcome. I'm really looking forwards to experimenting to see what works best for my hair.
