I got caught in the rain today and realized that my hair has reverted to 100% natural again. I blame the salt in the FAST conditioner for reverting my BKT from straight back to natural.  I will focus on deep conditioners and oils now since my hair has been exposed to SALT repeatedly for about a month now from the FAST conditioner. Ouch
Hope your BKT turns out great Carrie

I have made a complete turn around with my diet. I went to the market and got nothing but bags of frozen fish, tuna, eggs, fruits and lettuce and tomatoes. I have a piece of fruit in the morning like an apple or a banana or something. I boiled eggs and mixed it with tuna. I have a tuna and egg salad sandwich everyday for lunch. And I have some fish and salad or fish and beans or vegetable  for dinner. I have converted to a diet of strictly fish, fruits and vegetables. And I boil a huge pot of tea and put it in the fridge  to have iced tea all day and night. I sweeten it with zero calorie sweetener. I am so proud of my new efforts of eating only fish and vegetables. Hopefully it will translate into some new hair growth.

By the way I absolutely LOVE fish so I think this is a healthy regimen I will be able to stick to. Since I never eat out but  rather it is all home made I can keep the costs down by shopping carefully too.

I love how much oil she uses when she protects her hair and I do plan to try to add more fish, vegetable and beans to my diet this month instead of other things.
Btw, SistaWithRealHair is right at tail bone length now. I would really LOVE  to be able to be a pescatarian (one who eats only fish for meat) like her.  It would just be hard to have unified dinners with others in my home if I do this.
Another hairlista who is a pescatarian is JJJLonghair

I am a bit concerned after reading the ingredients in FAST shampoo and conditioner.
The conditioner has epsom salt in it (Magnesium Chloride) and the shampoo has salt in it (sodium chloride) Salts dry hair out, deteriorate it and make it frizzy and have tighter kinks. It will make me have to do my BKTs more often and will be counter productive to the health of my hair by generally drying it out.  I am sure it can not be good to use salts on color treated hair either. Ugh! Confused  Why oh why do they have to put salts in their products? They are not good for hair and especially not good for AA hair or chemically treated hair! Salts are SPECIFICALLY advised against for hair treated with Brazilian Keratin Treatments. Maybe I should just return it as soon as it comes instead because I do not want to go 2 steps forward and one step backward with my hair by making STUPID mistakes. DARN IT! I should have read the ingredients before I bought it. I think I have to return this product when it comes because I am not going to knowingly use salt in my hair when salt and sulfates are specifically advised against for the health of the hair and keratin treated hair. What good would it do me to grow an extra inch of hair if I have to cut it all off because it all gets brittle and dried out. UGH!!!!!!

Reference:
Salt    
Avoid 
(Such as Sodium Chloride or Potassium Chloride). Corrosive. Used as a cheap thickener or to keep product from separating. Can rough up cuticle and make hair dried out and brittle [ Begoun (Hair) pg 304].

PS: Oh well, I guess I will be using exclusively Shima's products as growth aids for the beginning of 2015 and not Nissim's also. They messed that up by putting salt in their products. They also have some foaming ingredients used in industrial dishwashing in the shampoo Ouch

Didn't know there's many options...3-4 months sound nice.

@Reli I did that.  It does not work as well to make it worth the effort as I recall.. But it is a start. If you're looking for cheaper, then get the keratin research product that is like $20 for 4 ounces ( 120 ml)  on amazon
