10 years of heat damage

SupahHSupahH Registered Users Posts: 15
hello, my name is holly. i know a lot of you will probably cringe when you read this, but I've been straightening my hair every day for the past 10 years without using a heat protectant, sometimes even on wet hair. worse yet, when i discovered sulfate-free shampoo, i started using that but continued to slap on silicones like nobody's business. i had the worst product build up ever. needless to say, my hair was terrible.

anyway, I've been CG for about a month now and I'm amazed by my hair. I'm actually getting compliments for once. i have so much more confidence. this site has been a lifesaver for me :toothy5:

    Welcome SupahH! There will probably be very little cringing here since most of us had put our hair through a lot in the past, but if we do cringe is at the memories, lol!

    Anyway, you're in the right place to start anew, I cannot even begin to tell you the amount of wonderful information, wisdom and experience that you can find here. So take your time going through the basics in this site, the "Q&As", search function, articles, etc. Very soon you might be the one passing on great advice to other newbies!
