What ha happened?! Can you go back to basics to get your hair healthy again?

I think I just didn't know how long my hair was so I guessed all around and was woefully wrong. My hair in the front was practically at my nipples [TMI sorry] and now it's barely scraping collarbone.  My hair hasn't been this short in years.


Yeah I mean I am not gonna treat my hair like sh*t but I am not gonna have hair goals and stuff anymore.  Just let it be. It's not like I was meeting them anyway.  Just wash once every 7-10 days and blowdry and do an updo.  Maybe a press every month.  I prefer wearing my hair straight/stretched anyway and I don't like no heat stretching methods.

4. When you want a heavy sealant:

How to use: Use separately or add some to your moisturizer.

5. When your scalp is itchy:

9. When your shampoo is drying:

12. When you want a more strengthening conditioner:
Hydrolyzed quinoa
Why:  Hydrolyzed protein provides reinforcement by temporarily patching the cuticle layer.
How to use: Mix with an avocado, yogurt, and/or oils to create a strengthening conditioner.

How to use: Melt slightly and mix with your moisturizer or use separately.
