Default What Are Some Stupid Things You Did With Your Hair Before LHCF?

I heard egg can strengthen your hair, so I whisked and egg and applied it all over my cornrows () and left it

Use to apply baby oil to my hair to make it shiny

Default Re: What Are Some Stupid Things You Did With Your Hair Before LHCF?

Oh gosh, where do I start?........

-Wore glue-in weaves
-After about a month in the weave, my edges started to get frizzy. So I'd rip the weave out, slap on a SUPER relaxer from root to tip and leave it on longer than the recommended time. Gotta make sure the edges get straight, right? :
-Did I mention that I didn't take any of the glue outta my head? I'd just slap the weave right on top of the old glue. My head was literally one big, sticky, black dreadlock.... But at least my weave looked good
-The only time I washed my hair was when I relaxed
-Pink Lotion + super hot Gold N Hot curling iron=

There's plenty more, but I don't wanna give ya'll nightmares

Default Re: What Are Some Stupid Things You Did With Your Hair Before LHCF?

i could remember years ago when i relaxed and if my hair was still frizzy i would re-relax my entire head while my hair was wet and i was using a super lol i fig since my hair was wet the relaxer would go deep into the strands and make my hair even straighter

and after i washed the second relaxer out i would blowdry my hair on the highest setting and flat iron my hair with it turned up to 25
and get this.... i would use no products back then cause it was all about the dry wispy wrap i would leave my hair dry for like a week and jus bump my ends to keep them straight i did manage to get to apl lol didnt stay there for long tho

I used pink oil AS a moisturizer infrequently.
I curled my hair with a hot Gold N Hot curling more than once a week, with product in my hair.
I combd through relaxers through all strands of my hair with each relaxer.
Did not regularily moisturize.
Only DCd when I got my touch up

I used hairspray and spritz sometimes so my hair would not fall. Also, I did not moisturize enough and had dandruff flare-ups. Once, I was on a no comb kick and my hair dreaded so mom had to cut me somewhere around shoulder blades. I greased my scalp and rexlaxed all the way to the ends ( I don't know how I kept hair on my scalp).

Glued-in weaves, and yes tiffers, I wouldnt even get all the glue out and just go right back to slopping more glue on top.

I woyuld take the weave out and comb it out with a small tooth comb (tried to get out as much glue as possible) and then I would relax, and yes, i relaxed every four weeks!

I bleached my hair blond on top and red in the back (Keyshia cole inspired).

Oh, and I would change my hair color every 3-4 months

Wash with shampoos with sulfates

I would DC all the time though! (That's about the only thing I did right!)

OOOh, and I would clip my ends, thinking my hair would grow...

I dyed my hair one color....decided I didn't like it and then dyed it again the next day.

I used a curling iron on my bangs everyday.

Years ago I was using Pink Oil Moisturizer on my hair right before flat-ironing it. Then as I made one pass through my hair, there goes the snap, pop & crackle of the iron with my hair in it and I thought it was fine! I stop doing that after seeing that my ends would try to be sticking to my clothes. Can you said BURNED?!

Oh wee Tiffers! You know the old you needed a time out LOL.

I used to wet my head everyday and pull it into a bun without any type of conditioner, leave-in or oil in it. I always wondered why it was so hard and crunchy at the end of the day. This allowed the nay-sayers to say "see, Black girls aren't supposed to wet their hair so much"

I would put super relaxer in my hair for 45 mins plus.

I would grease my hair everyday and use sponge rollers (then wonder why my hair was so dry and frizzy after a while)

At the times I was natural my hair grew out much better with the grease treatment, but then I would eventually go back to the super relaxer.

I went through a phase where I used the curling iron everyday, with layers of grease on top.

I would use any old pantene shampoo and conditioner about once a month.

I never deep conditioned.

I would wear cotton scarves every night.
One time I put so much pink oil in my hair my hair looked kinda pink


Then slowly I started to improve... thank God!

Wore glue ins for over a year!

When I wanted straight hair either as a relaxed or virgin head I would:

Get under the dryer for 30 minutes
Then blow dry
Then press
Then flat iron
Then curl

This was done at least 2-4 times a month.

Don't let me sweat, either from the sleeping at night, hot weather, etc. It was back to the blow dryer, press, flat iron then curling on a regular basis.

Can you say broken ends!!! I would have to sweep the bathroom floor, kitchen floor, clean off the stove, bathroom counters, tub, etc. There was hair everywhere! This was all done without protection to the hair.

It is a wonder I kept any hair on my head.

Heat was my FRENEMIE!!!!!!

Whew....reading this stuff I'm over here gasping out loud. My kids ran over saying, "what momma, what happened" LOL. Well as for me I neeever deep conditioned, I wouldn't comb my hair for the entire week before my touch up for fear of manipulating my scalp. By the time I got to the salon my stylist would have to rip at it to detangle it. I always used a rattail comb on my shoulder length or longer hair.

Default Re: What Are Some Stupid Things You Did With Your Hair Before LHCF?

Let's see...
  • I thought Deep Conditioning meant leaving conditioners on for 5 mins. I thought I was doing something, lol.
  • The only time I would get my hair washed was when I got a relaxer and i would relax my hair every month.
  • I would flat iron my hair with either pink oil "moisturizer" or water and grease! Talk about fried hair.
  • Used a blow dryer that had no temperature control!! It was frying my hair.
  • Wore a cotton scarf to bed.
  • When I was relaxed, my mom would comb the relaxer though my hair.
  • After a while, I would get tired of my hair not growing and would get braids that were done entirely too tight and leave them in for 2 or 3 months. The whole time, I wouldn't wash my hair or put anything on my braids. When it came time to take them out, I wondered why my hair was so dry and matted.
