Hello to people out there in the hair world. I am a college student who is need of your help. IN the month of Dec. 2003 My hair was super long and had grown tremendously when I started using a new grease from Africa that I got from my African roommate who said would work great on damaged hair which is called "Claricer" hair food. It worked wonders and my hair began growning extra long. I was taking acre of it by washing conditioning and oiling my scalp until I went to the ahir dresser...

In the month of Jan. 2004 I got a Super perm that I had been normally getting but it finally burned my hair out! The temples were totally gone and my back was so short and my crown is also short..All I remember was crying and wondering how I was going to get my hair back to normal. My hair growns very slow. I currently have weave sewed in since last month and have been oiling my scalp with Doo grow oil and Optimum care Feather light Hair Dress. is there anytihng I can do to help my hair to grow back to its shulder length tress?! Help me I'm a damsel in distress!

First thing I would suggest is to cut the damaged parts of your hair and start over...I"ve never had a weave but I'm not sure if it's a good idea to have one in at this time because of the frality and stress that your hair has gone through....I would also suggest deep conditioning and/or protein treatments to make your hair strong once more....

i agree. dang, i know how you must feel.

i'd die if i lost all my hair. here's whats gonna happen..the permed hair that you have left will keep falling out every time you wash or comb it, until you have nothing but natural hair left. thats what happened to my sister. so your gonna have to start over.

Cut the damage, careful with the grease, and if you get a weave careful with the braids.

Time and TLC are the only tried and ture methods for hair growth.

It could also have been becuase of stresses from school.

A mulit-vitamin is always a good idea.

Because that is what it takes for your hair to get "straight".  It's what I use.

you use the super as opposed to regular or mild valynt9?? Your hair appears as though it only needs regular - thats just from pics you've shown though...wow.

if im honest i havent a clue what strenght best for me...

Do you think that if a person was to use mild - having thick hair - it would allow stylist to work at a more steady pace and get done without rushing...coz mild would take longer to relax the hair..as opposed to super....your near front while back of head is burning for instance...(thats me)

super is what my stylest uses.  The pictures you are seeing are not of my natural hair.  they are all relaxed and either blown dry or blown dry and flat ironed.  My hair is so thick and stubborn it takes a super. Some people do....or there wouldn't be a market for it.

You may want to try using a strengthener on your hair
after you have the damged portion cut off.   I would
suggest Mane 'N Tail Hair Strengthener. It helps
restore elasticity.

why do you think your hair dropped? Is it because of the grease you used or because of the super perm?
