    Default Hello all! Introducing myself

    Hello all! I'm not new to long hair, I've gone back and forth my whole life but decided I was going to go longer than I ever have before. I used chemical dye for a hot minute (at home... didn't end well) and promptly went back to henna last year. I'm using ayurvedic herbs along with henna and mainstream hair care as well. I use oil on my ends, and usually keep my hair in a braid or a bun. I use satin pillow cases and a loose braid when I sleep. I'm hoping to learn a lot and make some hair friends! for fun, can you tell me one tip that tremendously helped the health of your hair?

    Cool username!

    Welcome to the forum.

    One tip? ROO(M) aka the Rinse Out Oil Method. Link is in my signature. I weekly wash, so often it's a chore to keep your ends nice and moisturized throughout the week. This helps. But if you would like to venture out into it... remember: less is more. It really is "drops" of oil and not teaspoons or tablespoons. Just that tiny bit (yes yes it will) will get you a long way!
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)

    Welcome! One tip that tremendously helped the health of my hair and psychological well-being? As it gets longer, don't wear your hair down on windy days.

    Welcome! One tip that tremendously helps my hair to be healthy and grow longer is to keep it well-moisturized, and don't wash it too often.

    welcome! I am new to LHC as well. one tip that seriously helped my hair is to use Aloe vera as a moisturizer on the lengths and scalp whenever I feel I need it. It doesn't necessarily work for everyone but if you find it works for you it can be very helpful in adding moisture without too many ingredients I use gel from the store and it washes out easily!

    Thank you for the reply! I'm curious, do you do this between washdays? have you done it along with oils?

    Welcome here! Protective styling and buns is what has done wonders for my hair - also not using dyes or heat on my hair.
