6. Yes, the first big chop, I used a lot of products

and thought that I had to. But the best products so far for me are just plain old hydration and a little bit of coconut/olive oil, whatever natural oil, even mayonnaise to condition and wash out, of course, Seriously, I had to get to know the hair that grew out of my head and that may be the problem with a lot of naturals and the need for products. A lot of them are young, too, and products are just so much fun!

I agree that it hasn't been just about hair but seriously knowing that there is nothing wrong with it. I think once that growth in consciousness is understood, the sky's the limit for what can be done with the most versatile hair on the planet, IMHO.

I'm thrilled that black people, when it comes to hair, are allowing ourselves in huge numbers to live life the way we see fit. Do you!
