OLDER VIDEOS ARE STILL PUBLIC ON MY CHANNEL FOR REFERENCE OF MY HAIR, IT'S THICKNESS (LEVEL) AND ANY OTHER CONCERNS YOU MAY HAVE S ABOUT MY HAIR. FEEL FREE TO SCROLL BACK AS FAR AS YOU WOULD LIKE =) (I SURELY DID REWATCH SEVERAL OF MY OLDER VIDEOS. I TOOK NOTES FROM MYSELF. IDKY I EVER SHYED AWAY FROM MY OWN ROUTINE OVER THE YEARS)
I have relaxed hair. I have always suffered dandruff, even when I had natural hair as a child ( the condition of my hair (relaxed or nautral ) is not related to my dandruff) In the past, Sulfur 8 worked wonderful on my dandruff (7+ years; since high school) but overtime as I stopped having a flaky scalp I slowly stopped using my sulfur 8.because I felt that my hair no longer needed it. Recently, about 5 hair tutorials back, I began to get lots of comments about my hair being dirty even after washing, and I received a few comments with concerns about “white specs being in my hair”. I first used an oil treatment to help with my dandruff, which some of my subscribers were unsure that I suffered from years ago as It was never mentioned on my channel in depth before. The oil worked for a while but definetely not like the Sulfur 8 had worked for me in the past. I don't know what I was thinking even trying the apple cider vinegar rinse as I NEVER TRY ANY HOME REMEDIES FROM YOUTUBE VIDEOS on my hair. As for the rinse, I use only a small amount mixed with water as mentioned in several of the natural hair tutorials that I watched. I allowed the rinse to sit on my relaxed hair for ~10 mins then I rinsed it out and proceeded with my usual wash day routine. Common sense I knew not to use vinegar in my hair because it strips things so I know it would strip my hair. Not to mention the fact that my mom says vinegar is what people used back in the day if they wanted to get rid of a relaxex / (perm as she calls it). Long story short, (not really) I will NEVER try home remedies, on my hair ever again. I plan to use my sulfur 8 for my dandruff. Yes, I have head and shoulders, T Gel,..you name it, If it's for dandruff I probably have it under my cabinet. so as for the apple cider vinegar rinse I don't know what I was thinking. like seriously, what was I thinking? =D. So your next question may be relaxed or natural? at this point, i am 15 weeks post relaxer. my hair is not ready to be relaxed and I will not choose to relax my hair until I feel that it is a better condition from the rinse before I choose to do so. It's honestly not a decision that I'm even focused on right now. as I am only concerned with getting my hair to be healthy again (the rinse has made it so brittle) this is all that I will say on the topic of relaxed or natural for now.
In conclusion, always do YOUR OWN RESEARCH, i am not blaming or bashing anyone else for the condition of my hair. as with all other hair decisions, it was my own choice and free will to try this rinse on my hair, I am only sharing with you my journey and experience. I do not plan on trimming my hair any shorter by the way. I do plan on revisiting my older regimen, hair routine, and choice of hair products to aid in growing my hair back because as I recently watched my older tutorials from previous years, it def helped my hair thrive. (idk how I shyed away from a lot of my own practices) but I'm def going back to them, example: roller sets, oil sheen sulfur 8, roller set straightening. basic routine!!! check older videos for details, as i cannot cover it all in this one place.
For now, this is all that I can think of to address and explain in detail for you all. If I think of anything else that I forgot to mention, I will update the info bar. thanks for watching and reading.
