Growing natural hair requires patience and tender love and care. I remember when I had my big chop! There was a time when my hair was growing really fast and a time when things went on a plateau.

Hair conditioner has been dismantled and over-analyzed. Sometimes the whole “do this not that” concept can be quite confusing. How long to leave it on? Can you leave it longer than recommended?
