I have benefited over the years from knowledgeable and insightful Christians who not only talked the talked, but also walked the walk. For that, I am truly thankful.

Sometimes we Catholic Christians have questions about our faith, or seek a more in-depth study or certain beliefs we hold. Maybe we can use this thread as our little Q&A thread.

So how about it?]]>

I want to create a new thread for 4b/4c naturals to share your regimens, goals, and setbacks.

Thread Goals:

  • Find shorter detangling/ washing routines
  • Discuss hair successes
  • Discuss hair issues
  • Share regimens, techniques, and products
  • Support one another in our journey to grow long hair
  • I think one big goal is to find a regimen that is simple and less time consuming, so other new 4b/c naturals can have the blueprint to (nearly)...

I want to be clear that this isn't necessarily a challenge. This is a group support thread and you can set every week, once a quarter, or maybe you've never done a set before. Everyone in the past threads has been welcoming, accessible, and friendly and I know that will continue into 2017. Feel free to pop in, look at pictures,...

I recently purchased an iRestore light therapy helmet for home use to treat my naturally (and tragically) thinning hair. My hair is denser than my mother's, but also kinkier. It looks fine when natural, but when straightened it's another story.

I'm only on my 2nd night using this thing.

Has anyone else tried laser light therapy and, if...
