So I have been using the sulfur oil daily since the second week of July. I recently noticed that I was getting really bad headaches, I forgot to use it for a while and felt fine. Started back and the headaches came back. I diluted it with more oils and I feel fine now. I diluted it down to about less than 5% sulfur instead of 10-15%. I am still using it now and I did experience growth but I cant tell now because I braided it up. I was at about 8 inches all over before I put the braids in.
I have been wearing flat twists and braids with hair added at the ends to make a bun. It looked cute, but I got tired of redoing it every 3-5 days, so I put in some 2-strand twists. They took me less than a day to do. I plan to keep them in for about 2 months and maybe redo a few at a time after that so I can keep them in for like 3 or 4 months until the end of the year. I cant wait to see how much growth I will get from this. I know that I will be at APL by then.
I decided to start using ACV rinses every 1-2 weeks. I want to see how that will work. Others have stated that it has made their hair stronger over time.
My braid regimen is as follows:
1. Shampoo every 2 weeks with a clarifying poo
2. deep condition weekly
3. cowask twice weekly
4. spray with moisturizer twice daily
5. use sulfur oil nightly and massage in
6. wear a plastic cap to bed every other night
My moisturizer spray consists of peppermint tea mixed with vo5 split ends(protein), suave coconut and citrus smoothie(moisture), and a blend of oils(evoo, coconut, grapeseed, and soybean). I spray that on generously and squeeze in.
