Here are some of the questions I get asked the most, and what my answers have been. This way you can get your answers immediately, without having to wait on me. And you never know, you might find answers to a few questions you didn't even know you had yet.

*This is still a work in progress. I'm continuing to add many more questions, and we are still ironing out a few quirks. But we wanted to make this available as soon as possible.

There are several ways to choose the question(s) you'd like answered:

... or you can ...


... or you can ...

Will conditioner change the texture of my hair?
The answer is sort of yes, but not for the reasons it may seem like. If you have damaged hair, over time, you will most certainly notice a change in your hair if you continue to make your hair happy using these techniques. This is a combination of the conditioner helping to weigh and define your hair while moisturizing, along with the result of you getting new hair in with a nice strong curl pattern again. Also, as your hair gets longer, it will begin to weigh itself down, so that will make it appear smoother and wavier. But these results are indirectly because of the conditioner. Because the conditioner is totally gentle, it will not and can not permanently alter your hair (only harsh chemicals can permanently alter the texture of your hair).

So that's a long way of saying yes, over time, your hair will get more manageable and controlled and smoother. But that's because by then you will have all healthy hair, and then in even more time, you will have long hair. And once your hair has no more damage, so long as you continue to make it happy and use the right conditioners, you will be able to walk in rain or humidity or high winds, and your hair will stay calm (it might curl up a bit more, but not explode into fuzz like mine once used to do).
