    They are not quite pajamas, as I would call them, so I just refer to them a sleep sets. I am not far off on that here. Mine are short sleeved and the bottoms are like shorts, only much lighter in fabric and design.

    Ok.
    In my language, pyjamas is both, and Swedish wiki says that if one differ between them, "pyjamasdress" (~pyjamasoverall) is the one which is not in two parts.
    Well, I sleep in a set then, or home made set from T-shirt and soft trousers.

    I know I am off topic. Sorry for that, couldn't resist asking what it was.

    I can understand the concepts behind certain scientific research, what the research says and "connect the dots" (pull it all together) between research results and potential applications but I am not a scientist.

    I had a theory that naturally produced peroxide, from plants, oils and honey was non damaging, based on research I had read and results in the Honey thread.

    If you read the August 2008 portion of this post, scroll down to it, scientists have long been working on elements concerning that and producing results, that support "my" theory, lol.

    So far, applying that research to coconut and argan oils is working, based on 33 reports in the peroxide thread. It is just a matter of analyzing it all and testing it, which LHC members are doing and helping with, in terms of missy60, suggesting argan oil, which I looked into and found that it can chelate copper and Linda, was already using coconut oil as a pre-treatment before dying her hair. She just did not know why it helped prevent damage for her. missy60 too used coconut oil, on already damaged hair, and continued to dye her hair and got no further damage.

    I like to know why things work and how, if possible.

    I have not been able to find the same kind of research with regard to catnip. I only know it works for me, used a certain way.

    Ha, I have had this for a while. But until looking into coconut oil here, I never made the lauric acid connection! Sweet! I love it when things connect!

    Now, in no way am I comparing catnip to coconut oil but I do know that catnip can penetrate hair, when bagged and timed, through my experiments and results.

    Catnip works for me. Lauric acid has an affinity for hair proteins (according to this research here). Cool!

    Tried my first hour long cat-nipping while bagged after a shampoo and vinegar rinse (ok, I've decided my hair doesn't like vinegar).

    Made my hair seems nice, but nothing too significant. I'll have to try again. How many times a week did you folks who saw growth do it?

    Great to hear that at least your hair is nice!

    It can take time for you to see the results you want, provided all things are in place, like no coatings on the hair. I cannot predict a time frame though. My growth rate was good before catnip and is even better now, IMO.

    I do know and others have agreed, that for me and them, catnip use can get better, the longer (or more often), it is used.

    I only need to do my hair once a week. Shampoo then catnip and bagged for 1 hour. Have been doing this for 3 months and my hair feels better than it has done for years. It can take time to see results but you need to stick with it.

    I've tried vinegar rinses in the past and my hair really wasn't happy with it.

    I think that I answered this too fast. My apologies. I used to wash my hair twice a week with catnip, now only once a week, but that can vary.

    For me, it was a journey in experimenting. I did not pay too much attention to growth as such. I did notice a growth increase, sometime after I started increasing the bagged timing, several months in, in doing that, I believe. It has been the quality of my hair length that has been my focus.
