My Hair Story and Regimen

My Hair Story

I always had thick/long hair that grows fast, my hair setback was in high school, I started letting all these hair stylest get in my head and damaged my hair, so the SALONS was my setback. Everyone with a LICENSE don't know how to care for hair,because I have had experiences with breakage from relaxers ,etc, because all they thinking about is the money and moving on to the next client. I'm not saying all beauticians/stylest are this way,i'm just speaking on things I went through with the ones I have dealt with in the past.My mom nursed my hair back to its healthy long state,so she is a huge part of my hair being in it's healthy long state it's in, PLUS I must say "SEW_IN EXTENTIONS has also been a a huge part of my healthy long hair success, I have a male hair stylest "BayBay" that I let do my Sew-Ins,he is really amazing,he takes his time, he give you exactly what you want,and he do the job RIGHT. My mom use to be a hair stylest in her past, before she became a nurse, now she is retired from being a nurse and military.I came across the Long Hair Care Forum in August of 2008,from a yahoo search, and that site has given me a new outlook on my hair and lots of tips also. But I must give thanks to my mom,BayBay,Long Hair Care Forum,and myself on my beautiful hair.
