[blockquote align=”none” author=””]Hi Jeni, have you ever used Bee Mine Growth Serum with sulfur? If so, what was your experience? Also, have you tried the Greenhouse Method on your hair, and if so, with what results? Thank you for taking the time to answer these questions :)[/blockquote]
I have tried Bee Mine Growth Serum, it was one of the first topical growth aids I tried when I first started caring for my hair. I used it for a couple months and honestly can’t remember if I saw an increase in hair growth because it was so long ago and I wasn’t diligent in tracking my progress. I was supposed to start back up on it this year and stay consistent, but umm, what had happened was… My cousin has been consistently using it though and she has definitely noticed results. The only thing I remember not liking about the serum though was the fragrance. I don’t really like the scents.
I have tried the greenhouse method but I don’t think I’ll be incorporating into my regimen only because I’m weird and waking up with damp/wet hair is icky (icky, such a mature word choice haha). I’ve only tried it ocne. I applied oil to my hair, covered with a plastic cap, covered that with my satin scarf and when I woke up in the morning, I didn’t like the feel of my hair at all. My hair was soft and could notice the benefit of doing it, I don’t like the feel of damp, mushy hair in the morning.
[blockquote align=”none” author=””]Hey Jeni , can you do a post on how to treat dry hair? I have been doing everything but my hair still looks dry as hell, lol . Whats worst is even after shampooing, DC, leave in, roller set, my hair will have a dry look after a few hours. I hate that. I need HELP!!![/blockquote]
Hey there. First, have you tried clarifying? I ask because product build up can prevent moisture from penetrating into the hair. I’m currently dealing with this now because I can’t even remember the last time I used a clarifying shampoo.
A second suggestion is to check the porosity of your hair. If you have low porosity hair, the cuticles on the hair shaft and bound tightly and makes it a bit harder for moisture to penetrate into the hair. Adding heat when you deep condition may help. If you have high porosity hair, the cuticles of your hair shaft are not tightly bound. Moisture goes into but isn’t trapped in your hair so while your hair may feel soft right after you deep condition or moisturize, after a few hours, it will feel dry again.
A quick way to check if you have low porosity or high porosity hair is to collect strands from a brush or comb and drop them into a bowl of water. If the hair sits on the water and quick sinks, your hair is high porosity hair. The hair sinks quickly because there are gaps along the cuticle. If the hair floats on the water and takes a while to sink (a noticeable long of time) then your hair is low porosity.
As a mentioned before, Roux Porosity Control helps correct hairs porosity levels.
Hope this helps!
