Just thought I would give a little info packet of all the things I've learned-ladies feel free to add or subtract anything

1.Common Abbreviations and terms

NTM-neutrogena triple moisture (great line of products)
WGO-wild growth hair oil
MTG- Shapley's original mane tail groom (shapleys.com)-smelly but aids growth
pre-poo- pre-shampoo treatment where you apply oil(s) to your dry hair and let sit for a while (whatever works for you)
EVOO-extra virgin olive oil (Rachel ray-nah)
EFA- essential fatty acids
co- wash- washing with conditioner instead of shampoo
HTH- hope this helps
IM(H)O- In my (honest) opinion

Popular supplements: GNC horsetail (green bottle 8.99), biotin, Flax oil/EFAs,HF57, MSM (the powder form is the most potent-but is very bitter), multi-vitamins

common advice:
-Start a fotki (online photo album) to track your progress- that way you can see that your hair is growing-even when the mirror says otherwise
-Increase hair washing- I co-wash 6 days and shampoo wash on the 7th
-Deep condition weekly (I do 1hr under a hooded dryer)
-Reduce the heat applied to your hair (I only apply heat when deep conditioning)
-Treat ends with a water based moisturizer (Elasta QP Mango Butter is a fave) and then seal with oil (coconut, jojoba, etc) others use Vitapointe etc.
-Sleep with a satin/silk scarf or sleep cap
-Trim as needed
-Treat with protein, as needed (for severe breakage use Aphogee Treatment for damaged hair every 6 weeks or so, if not so severe use Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor)-
-If relaxed, extend the time between relaxers (stretching) if you can, reduces the likelihood of overlapping previously relxed hair-which can lead to breakage
-If you decide to use MTG, massage into scalp daily for optimum results
-Wear you hair so that the ends are protected
-Drink more water (see Phoenix 1017's water calculator post)

Popular oils:
Jojoba, coconut, EVOO, Castor(thickens hair), sweet almond oil, grapeseed oil. Recommended to get the unrefined, organic ones.
 
Oils to mask MTG smell: Peppermint, lemon, jasmine and other essential oils (Phoenix 1017)
 
Making new growth softer: mix together water, glycerin (available at your local pharmacy), honey and aloe vera (caramel diva)-for those natural or those stretching relaxers
Recommended viewing
growafrohairlong.com

Finally,
Realize that hair takes a  while to grow, try not to get discouraged. If you do come back here for support. First goal should be healthy hair, length will come after.

That is a nice FAQ post you've compiled there.Thumbs Up It will answer lots of questions.
 
Maybe you could edit in the additions and suggestions that other members add so the other members will only have to look at your first post to get all the info instead of reading the whole post. That will make it faster for them.  Smile
 
I have something to add BTW, you could include the oils used to mask MTG smell. That gets asked pretty frequently. People use Lemon oil, Peppermint oil, Lavende oil, Orange oil and lots of other essential oils to mask it. I think Peppermint is the most effective.

Great job, Jamaicancurry.

Some other oils that i use that others may not have heard of: apricot kernel oil, wheatgerm oil( i really like this one),castor oil(can't be without- my #1 staple), vitamin e oil(similar in consitency to castor and growth aid as well), sweet almond oil(great), safflower oil( great for dry hair), palm oil( same consistency as coconut oil and great on my hair- it is what africans used prior to being brought to america as slaves and they still use today although mostly for cooking i am told), coconut oil (great for hair), grapeseed oil (really good on my hair).

Moisturizer for natural or relaxed hair(transitioning or stretching):

 lil Glycerin

water

lil honey

liquid aloe vera

 
That's about all i can contribute at the moment.

Where are ya'll getting these essential oils from (i.e. peppermint, jasmine, rosemary. etc..) Can I get them from a regular grocery store, or in a BSS? I went to Sally's this weekend and they had no idea what i was talking about. I just got my MTG in the mail this weekend and used it w/o adding anything to mask the smell...I was soo scared to get near anyone since the smell was sooo horrendous (sp?)Dead...and plus i think i put too much of it on my hair. Anyways...where can I purchase these eseential oils??

Jojoba oil mimicks our own natural oil, sebum, so I am sure you can apply it to the scalp. As far as your ends apply a moisture based cream 1st such as elasta QP mango butter and then seal with jojoba oil
 
I have yet to try JOjoba oil as a pre-poo treatment I'm sure the other ladies can shed light on that
 
As far as the post- no prob- just an accumulation of everything that has been posted

Hey Jamaican Curry, this is really sweet of yaWink
 
Just wanted to include what protective styles are:  the bun, braid-outs, twist-outs, bantu knots.  These keep your hair from being fried up by the curling irons and keep the moisture optimal.  Also, keeps hair off the shoulder where rubbing with clothes causes breakage.
 
Also, if you starting out with some dry, breaking hair, the S-curl "no-drip" is the way to go.  This stuff will keep you hair from breaking, unless you need a trim, until you find other products and get you regimen together.
 
 
BUN and s-curl is what got me thru.

what does APL and bump mean?

Hello...this is WRITENOW. I am a NEWBIE! Thank you so very much for providing info r/t the abbreviations commonly used on this site! I had a horrendous time trying to figure out what they meant. It was so mind boggling...until I kind of  just  said forget it! I finally figured out the MTG. Again thank you for your support as well as the other helpful info that you provided!  I went bought  the Mane'N Tail shampoo and conditioner. Tell me is MTG  a separate or different product?  Please let me know! Again thank you, JamaicanCurry!

Greatly appreciated Jamaican Curry. I envy you guys, where I live products are hard to find and very expensive. I have to shop overseas and stock up on my hair products. Jamaican curry, you mentioned that you only apply heat when you deep condition. Have you ever tried deep conditioning and covering your hair with a plastic cap then do cleaning etc. I tried it yesterday and worked really well, when i touched the cap it felt warm and steamy. Try leaving it for a few hours, then wash and style.

Have you gotten better results with the hood dryer? Why do you prefer that method?


Posted By: jamaicancurry
Date Posted: May 09 2006 at 9:10am
I don't know if it's mind over matter but I feel that the applied heat allows the conditioner to better penetrate the hair shaft- my hair usually comes out softer when I do

Since this is a newbie thread, I'll ask a newbie question.  I don't know if anyone else has this problem but if a post is long, I can't see the whole thing.  It's like the posts are on another frame or something.  The only way I can see the whole thing is if I quote it.  I don't know if I'm being clear but that's the best I can explain it.

Depending on how long your hair is, you could try the ponytail roller method or banded ponytails.

Posted By: jamaicancurry
Date Posted: Jun 04 2006 at 7:14am
hmmm...I hear scalp massages, and maybe try a peppermint shampoo/condish. MTG aids growth but might irritate your scalp. I really don't know- I know Rosemary will help, but don't know if it will irritate the scalp, perhaps you can do a patch test and if you have no reaction then you can use Rosemary.

Have you also considered vitamins/healthier foods to help hair growth?
    
I'm sure someone will be able to answer this ...

I will have to try the scalp massages. I bought some head and shoulders scalp care to see if it will work (trying it today) I just started back taking vitamins(centrum). I bought some parnevu tea tree oil hopefully this helps also. I did a Evoo,honey and herbal oil mix pre-poo on my daughters hair yesterday and an ACv rinse plus neutrogena mask nad shampoo and her hair came out really soft (she is 7 1/2 weeks post) and shiny very managable..unlike before i'm gald I found this site

Another newbie here saying thanx for the post! The abbreviation explanations couldn't have come at a better time. Believe me! lol I was wondering though if anybody has an pics or can give more details on the protective styles. I've got down what bantu knots are and how they work, but I think I'm not protecting my ends very well when I do buns and I'm not sure what is meant by braid outs. I have neck lenghth hair and its VERY hard for me to do anything with it without heat styling cause that's what I'm used to. If anybody have any suggestions for styling my length of hair, I'd appreciate it.

A braid out is when your braid your hair and take them out, leaving a crinkly, wavy look.  I have neck length hair too and I am able to pull it back into a pinky sized ponytail.  So I usually clip it up so the length isn't visible (like in my siggy)

I have a few questions:
 
1. Can you recommend a good shampoo and conditioner?
2. Is it okay to use Castor/ Jojoba Oil together or would you recommend just using one?
3. The recipe for softer growth (water, glycerin, honey and aloe vera)- Is it to be used as a moisturiser or does it need to be washed out?
4. I have used Mango Elasta QP but on many occasions, I have found it shrinks my hair, is there another moisturiser which could be used?
5. My hair is mainly 4b, how can I wash it without it tangling and breaking?
6. Can a frohawk be considered a protective hairstyle?


Posted By: chai
Date Posted: Jul 15 2006 at 11:57am
