romotes longer hair, healthier hair, thicker hair. Can grow hair noticeably in 2 - 3 weeks, can thicken hair in days, can arrest shedding hair in about 4 days." Lots of women on youtube have been documenting their usage and success with the product. There are a few who aren't impressed but most seem to have positive feedback. As for myself, I still really like NuGro. The smell isn't the greatest but I can honestly say (unless I am trippin beyond reason) it has grown my hair quite a bit. Back in August when I did my first mini chop, I cut my hair super uneven. My friends told me it wasn't noticeable but I definitely noticed! Especially when trying to do my bantu knots. The back left side would always be much harder to twist and coil. Well, last night while doing my bantu knot set I noticed that it wasn't as difficult to knot as it was before. At first I was like "hey my hair grew!" and then I remembered my NuGro and just had to post a product review! If you can't tell by now, NuGro get's a GIRL, YES! from me! I probably use it more than the bottle recommends but hey, I do what I please! lol Now I will say this, NuGro's conditioner is not one that I would highly recommend for detangling hair. It's very watery and it feels like your hair is literally drinking it. By that I mean, there is hardly any left on the shaft to detangle with. Lately I've been using Herbal Essence's None of Your Frizzness to do my detangling with a wide toothed comb and a paddle brush. Well, I hope I've helped someone out today...until next time, Happy Healthy Hair Growing! :)
Addendum:Naturallycurly.com readers have suggested a third Type 3 subtype: 3c.
Type 3C, is hair with tight curls in corkscrews. The curls can be either kinky, or very tightly curled, with lots and lots of strands densely packed together. Some people refer to this as "big hair." Getting this type of hair to blowdry straight is more challenging than for 3A or 3B, but it usually can be done. This includes those with very tight curls but finer hair, as well as coarser hair. 3C has really really tight curls, like pencil or straw circumference. 3B is like sidewalk chalk or salt shaker circumference, and 4A is like coffee stirrer circumference.
Addendum:NaturallyCurly.com type 4 readers have found the above description limiting, and somewhat misleading. We offer the following addendum:
Type 4 hair can range from fine/thin to wiry/coarse strand texture. Generally, this hair is densely packed to give the appearance of very thick but fragile hair. 4a hair has a clearly visible curl and wave pattern that ranges from pen size curls to pen spring size coils. 4b hair has a tighter wave pattern and kinks of various size. This texture does not exhibit the shine or silkiness of looser type curls, but instead has sheen, and a soft, almost cotton-like feel. As with other types of curly hair, showing the true length can be an extra challenge, as the hair may grow "up" or "out" before starting to hang down. In its unlocked/unbraided state, type 4 hair is known to shrink up to 75% of the actual hair length. With the proper care and technique, type 4 hair is indeed resilient, manageable, durable, growable and easy to control.
So I'm sure by now that we've all seen Ms. Solange's new do. Some said she looked a mess, others argued that beauty should not be defined by hair. Some of us in the natural community may have been a little eager to accept her into our natural hair club and others may have seen it as the commercial attention to the "big chop" that is well, less than desirable. Well, as I was surfing the net, I stumbled upon Ms. Knowles' own explanation or reaction to all of the above stated feelings emoted by the general public and celebrities alike. Have a read.
