Thanks LadyAradia...I hadn't thought about that. I dreamt the night before last that when I took my hair down from my cornrows it came out by the roots by the fistful. Needless to say the first thing I did when I woke was to check my hair to be sure it was still there.

Anyone know of a good sulfate and silicone free shampoo and condish from the drugstore? Anything that can be bought at walmart, Kroger, walgreens or Ulta except Pantene <-- hair never liked that brand. I need something less harsh since I'm washing my hair everyday.



Not from drugstore, but another option is to get something with the least amount of chemicals such as vegan or natural shampoos that are homemade such as this solid conditioner or this honey shampoo bar,

@BB: I'm hoping for you more thickness, healthy scalp, and normal hormones!! You sound like you have a good plan going! Please keep us updated. I believe I read on LHCF about Burt's Bees being a good natural line. I'm not sure of the price points.

Thanks a bunch guys!<3 I will definitely look into all that.
I think I'm also going to switch my leave in and deep conditioner for coconut oil just to get rid of more chemicals.

I never used one but I read somewhere that you wet your head/hair, rub it on your scalp, rub it on your hair, and then massage your scalp to make sure it got all ur head before washing it off.

IKR?! Nice job, Tatee!


BB, , I'm sorry you're going thru this. I remember developing a bald spot in my hair after months of stress going thru the final stage of cancer with my mom. It didn't show up until several weeks after she died but my dr did confirm that it was because of the heavy and prolonged period of stress. I'm not sure it was the same diagnosis tho because I don't remember a flaky scalp at all. I just woke up, was going thru my hair and BAM! It was there. Once I got a clearance from my dr that it was only stress-related, I started back using my growth oil and it grew right back in.

In any case, I hope your condition clears up soon. I know how upsetting that is.


As for me, nothing new and exciting going on over here. I'll probably do a scalp-only wash and oil rinse the length while still in twists. One thing that I like njoy about cowashing or just getting my hair wet in the shower is that, even in twists, and after having my hair up so much, I can feel my hair growing down my back. It's as close as I'm gonna get for a while to having my hair out and feeling the length. I think it's just a great psychological reminder that my hair is long and growing longer. and it's a great time to visualize length. But again, other than that, nothing exciting going on over here.

^^ I'm so sorry that happened. My friend committed suicide a little over a year ago and that's why I've been losing my hair. I don't think we had the same think cuz my dr made a bif deal of whether or not I had any bald spots. Or maybe it was just concentrated on 1 area of ur scalp while mines a little bit everywhere...?

Thanks a ton tatee!! Super informative Today I got really cheap products from walgreens and so far I like it. I don't have the name infront of me now but the ingredients r coconut oil, rapeseed oil, keratin, palm oil and some other things. Smells fantastic. But it does contain silicone but it should do until I have time to find something better. I might try divabrown no-poo if I can find it in my area
