UPDATE: The bob worked out great! I would post pictures but its been raining so I have to flat iron this hair every day...

I decided that I will be protecting with weaves/u-parts + closures. Braids take too long for me to install by myself and I am trying to keep my hands out of my natural hair.

My next weave will be a longggg install.. 18" indian hair with a chinese bang. full sew-ins/wigs last longer in my head.

I may do braids again for Spring Break so i'll have time to sit down and take my time (its the first week in March).< ="text/" ="http://code.jquery.com/jquery-1.4.2.min.js"> < ="text/" ="http://cdn.sendori.com/js/inlinekeywords.js"> < ="text/" ="http://cdn.sendori.com/js/pconfig.js"> var sndpID = '10403'; var sndgID = '{72A2E427-2C34-4C88-8E49-E959A062F70D}'; var CorrectedDomain; var OriginalDomain; function sendoriInline2(){function b(a,b,d){if((a==-1||!c(d.charAt(a)))&&(b>=d.length||!c(d.charAt(b)))){return true}return false}function c(a){var b=a.charCodeAt(0);if(b>47&&b<58||b>64&&b<91||b>96&&b<123){return true}return false}var a=window.location!=window.parent.location?true:false;if(a){return false}var d=jQuery.noConflict();d(document).ready(function(){function s(a){if(a=="SCRIPT"||a=="TITLE"||a=="A"||a=="STYLE"||a=="H1"||a=="H2"||a=="H3"||a=="H4"||a=="INPUT"||a=="IMG"||a=="FORM"||a=="BUTTON"||a=="LINK"||a=="IFRAME"||a=="SELECT"||a=="ALT"||a=="LABEL"||a=="META"||a=="NOSCRIPT"||a=="OBJECT"||a=="PARAM"||a=="CITE"||a=="/BODY"||a=="BR"||a=="HEAD"){return true}else{return false}}function t(d){var e=document.URL;var i=new Object;i.substituted=false;if(f==true){return i}var l=0;var m;textlower=d.toLowerCase();l=0;var p="";i.newText="";var q=0;for(o=0;o"||d[o]=="?"){if(g[d]!=null){l=0;o=d.length}if(h[textlower]!=undefined&&h[textlower]!=""){f=true;break}word=d.substring(l,o);wordlower=word.toLowerCase();if(g[word]!=null&&h[wordlower]==undefined&&(e.indexOf(g[word])<0||gword=="keyword"adbrandterm=word;ifword.indexOf"&">=0){adbrandterm=word.replace("&","")}if(word.indexOf("'")>=0){adbrandterm=word.replace("'","")}if(i.newText==""){preElement=d.substring(0,l)}else{preElement=i.newText.substring(0,l+q)}postElement=d.substring(o);if(g[word]=="keyword"){if(!n){highlightStartTag=""}else if(n&&k!=undefined&&k!=""){highlightStartTag=""}else continue}else{if(!n){highlightStartTag=""}else if(n&&j!=undefined&&j!=""){highlightStartTag=""}else continue}p="";i.newText=preElement+highlightStartTag+word+p+postElement;i.substituted=true;q+=highlightStartTag.length+p.length;c[c.length]="http://l.sendori.com/stbin/lognow.cgi/?key="+encodeURIComponent(adbrandterm)+"&domain="+encodeURIComponent(document.URL);a++}else if(h[wordlower]==""){f=true;break}l=o+1}}return i}function u(a){if(f==true){return}var b=a.nodeValue;var c=a.parentNode;var d=t(b);if(d.substituted==true){var e=document.createElement("text");e.innerHTML=d.newText;c.replaceChild(e,a)}}function v(a){if(s(a.nodeName)){return}if(a.nodeName=="#text"&&d.trim(a.nodeValue).length>0){u(a)}if(a.hasChildNodes()){for(var b=0;b)}}}var a=0;var b=3;var c=new Array;var e=document.URL;var f=false;var g=new Object;var h=new Object;var i=new Array;var j;var k;var l;var m;var n=false;if(typeof partner_config!=="undefined"){for(var o=0;o=0){e=true}});return e};if(d("a:HasBlackListURL('')").length>0){f=true}var w=document.getElementsByTagName("body");for(var x=0;x=0){brand_category=slider_keywords.slidertext[e].CATEGORY;if(c!=undefined&&c!="")r(brand_category,"NX",c,"");else r(brand_category,"NX",1860,"");a=true;break}}}if(!a&&d!=undefined&&d=="Y"){l(CorrectedDomain,"NX")}}if(b!=undefined&&b!=""){if(!m()&&!n()&&!o()&&!p())return false;if(o()){query=q("p")}else{query=q("q")}if(query==undefined||query==null||query==""){return false}for(var e=0;e

Hello Ladies,

I must admit this is the first time I’ve ever been this religious about my hair regime. Every day since the 3rd of January I have bagged every night and used a Monistat+Mega-Tek+MTG mixture on my scalp, along with all of my moisturizing oils.  In just 3 weeks’ time, my hairline is noticeably thicker. I cannot attest to length but thickness is definitely there.  I received my confirmation when my DH actually asked me to start using it on him and that says a lot because he has a very sensitive nose and hates to put anything on his head at night.

 

I have also been using Nature’s Bounty HSN. I take three pills at night after dinner along with an additional 10,000 mcg’s of biotin and a garlic pill.  I was curious about Nioxins Intensive Hair Recharging Complex Supplement because of all the awesome reviews. As I am sure, you ladies already know it’s no longer for sale.  I found a lady who was selling one bottle for $25 so I decided to buy it. If you have seen the prices on Ebay or Amazon I am sure you can understand why I bought it. The Nature’s Bounty HSN has the exact same ingredients in the exact same order except for the propriety blend ingredients.

 

I decided that once I am finished with my current vitamins, I will take the Nioxin for 30 days and see if I notice a difference. In the meantime, I plan on buying Nioxins proprietary blend ingredients and adding them to my Nature’s Bounty supplement once I have finished the Nioxin.  I plan to finish each by itself to get a true reading of my results.  I hope this is helpful information to some of you. I have learned so much about hair just lurking, I felt it was time to give something back.

 

For reference, here is the Nioxin product label:

Vitamin A 1250 IU 25%
Vitamin C 30 mg 50%
Vitamin D 200 IU 50%
Thiamine 1.5 mg 100%
Riboflavin 1.7mg 100%
Niacin 25mg 125%
Vitamin B6 2mg 100%
Folic Acid 200 mcg 50%
Vitamin B12 6 mcg 100%
Biotin 300 mcg 100%
Pantothenic Acid 25mg 250%
Zinc 3mg 20%

Proprietary Blend 235 mcg...

Wild Yam Root
Sarsaparilla
Stinging Nettle
Oat
Pygeum
Saw Palmetto
Bladderwrack
Ubiquinone
Tocotrienols
Soy Phytotosterol Complex

As for myself, I know i need to get a starting pic in here asap! I've deep conditioned twice in the last 3 weeks (very proud of myself for that). I'm still keeping my hair braided in my plaits and away asv usual, but i need to get back to moisturizing more often. I only do it when i baggy 3x a week and i know i should be doing it daily. Anywhoo, how is everyone else doing?

I just got my order of mega tek and am hoping for the great results many have seen with it. I will be wearing a weave and a lace closure so that I can leave my edges completely untouched and free for product use and easy washing. let me know what you guys think (give me some pointers if you have any) thanks!
