  1. I'm subscribed through google and would like to enter! I'm excited by the prospect of an easy no mix henna, I will admit I've wanted to try henna but the mixing and experimenting intimidated me.

    I strengthen/protect my hair with protective styles, usually twists, and pre-pooing every time before I shampoo.

  2. I deep condition weekly with a moisturizing dc and every now and then with a protein dc such as hair mayonaise. I mostly do it before I install a set of twists or braids. On daily basis, I spritz, moisturize and seal my hair.
    Every 6 weeks I apply my henna treatment, which works just fine for me!

Cutting out over manipulation and bad habits that I have realized inhibit my growth, 2011 growth challenge for me!

  14. I have been curious about henna; I know many women have had great success using it to strengthen their tresses. Currently I strengthen my hair with a home-made protein deep conditioner (banana baby food, 1 egg, honey, olive oil) every two to three weeks. I also protective style like it's my day job! lol

  17. I'll enter! I'm a follower through Google.

    Right now, I try to keep my hair strong by regular deep conditioners that contain protein (every week or two), and using plenty of coconut oil on my hair in general. I think the most important thing to keep my breakage to a minimum (though it is STILL more than I'd like) is leaving my hair in styles that last a week at a minimum, and generally two or more.

  18. I strengthen my hair by doing henna and yogurt treatments every 1-2 months and the Aphoghee 2-Step treatment every 4 months.

    I protect my hair by using a wide-tooth comb along with gentle detangling techniques, a moisturizing shampoo, using a glycerin spritz whenever it feels dry and sealing with a hair butter mix (shea, coconut oil, castor) afterwards. I also wear braid or twist updos 95% of the time. A silk or satin scarf at bedtime is a must.

  19. I believe healthy hair starts inside out. I drink lots of water. I work out 3-5 times a week which reduces stress (linked to hair loss) and gets your glands to open up, which would allow the hair to sprout out of pores faster. It also gets your blood flowing and good blood flow to the scalp affects hair growth. I also co-wash 1-2 times a week and keep my hair in a protective style. I deep condition every week and every other week I put oil in my hair and sit in the sauna for about 30 minutes to steam my hair (until I can afford the huetiful steamer :))And I take a multi-vitamin daily. I'm njoying my healthy hair and my new healthy life- STYLE <3

  21. I use henna, amla, brahmi, maka and other ayurvedic powders to strengthen my hair. Recently, I did henna treatments once a week for three weeks. My hair was breaking, and with the treatments it was reduced significantly.

    I do my best to ensure my hair is properly moisturized each day to protect it from drying out. I also do protein treatments to protect my fragile ends.

  23. I recently had to cut all my hair off from wearing glued in weaves and braids. I just started researching hair care and I'm amazed at all the stuff I found out! i felt so ignorant when it came to hair care. To protect my tresses i wash once a week with a moisturizing poo, i deep condition with protein conditioner with added oils for moisture,and I protect my tresses by wiggin it up as a protective and low maintenance style. No direct heat at all. Currently transitioning! And I'm loving my tresses rite now might i add..lol
