    Default Hello there!

    Hello!

    I'm an on-off lurker! I'm 21yo and from Finland. I wanted as long hair as possible and I think I am ready to commit myself to start reaching that dream.

    My hair is now down to my butt, but I still don't really know how to take care of it properly. It is dryish and it has pathetic (there's really no pattern) curls. People close to me have mostly silky straight hair, like my mom so i don't know how I should manage my own hair. I usually just put it in a bun or in a braid. I wash my hair once a week. I use shampoo every other week and always after that I use a hairmask. I also use conditioner and hair oil during every wash. I'm thinking of ditching the shampoo completely...

    I'm a mechanical engineering student and spend my days reading, hiking or playing video games. I also have a pet bunny named Pumba!

    Howdy, nice to meet you! If you're not liking the curl definition you're getting, it's definitely worth trying to give your hair some more moisture. Whether that means going CO for a while or just conditioning more often while still using shampoo is up to you to experiment with.

    Hello and welcome. If your hair is dryish even after your hair mask/oil, maybe there’s some buildup that blocks your hair from getting the nutrients that you apply, you can try clarifying/deep cleansing your hair to see how it feels to have a fresh start.

    Terve! My husband is Finnish, and I try to make my wash days match with sauna day, as I shower my hair once a week. ;-)
    Good luck with you hair growth journey!
