Well- I got a trim today- to even up the side that was longer than the other and get rid of some rough ends. I went to Mastercuts and the lady did a great job. She condition washed me first- combed through with the conditioner in it- rinsed and cut my hair with scissors.

Hi ladies…

When you speak of castile soap for washing hair…do you mean a regular bar of castile soap? Or is it something different?

Well, I put my last relaxer in November 2002, and i am just a couple inches past shoulder length.  So, probably around three years....
 
no new updates for me...still growing...i'm on a continued protective style challenge (alternating between twists, french braiding and buns), so i'll sign up for a growthchallenge if anyone else's interested

Well, my hair is still growing.  Atleast, I think so. I haven't blown it out in a while or stretched it fully so I have no idea how much I have now...trust me it is alot because braids/twists take longer now.
 
Just a few days ago, I washed it and made 2 french braids.   I'll probably wear it like this for a few more days.
 
Hope everyone else is having a happy growing!!!

After some damage from messing around with the infamous sodium hydroxide , I finally saw some significant growth (5 months later with help from braid extensions.) I don't have anymore breakage  since I started making my own conditioner. I simply have to wait until the end of the year before it thickens up and everything is even. Yay!
I'm in!

I'm waiting for my hair line to come back. I stopped tying up my hair in a scar too tight and wrapping it everynight. Its been a month now for me....I don't see too much growth. I'm wondering why it is taking so long. I have been using essential oils like peppermint and sage diluted wit sweet almond oil on my scalp. Sorry I didn't explain.....

Hey carameldiva,
I just started using Castile soap because commerical shampoo and conditioners were taking my hair out.  It's to my surprise that someone here is using it.   I bought my castile soap at TJ's too, but I get the  Dr. Bronners for the body at the Vitamin Shoppe.  I think I will try theirs too.
IT doesn't dry my hair out and it's very soft after I wash it with this stuff.  I will be adding my own essential oils to it also.  My hair is thicker too.
Of course I did a pre-poo with amla.

Currently loving: Castile soap to shampoo with (trader joe's) or Dr. Bronner's bar or liquid castile soap from www.thechemistrystore.com . I also obtained some hemp shampoo and conditioner, neem shampoo and rich creamy conditioner base (which are all great) frow www.wellnaturally.com

Conditioners: love Alberto Vo5- just started using this, also trader joe's essential, trader joe's refresh and my old standby saloncare conditioners

Surge 14 plus hair revitalizer is nothing but the truth. I have seen growth all over from using this consistently.

I am also taking my vitamins daily and drinking water.

I also still oil my scalp/ends nitely and apply a thin plastic cap.
