I wish there was a fine hair forum

I wish everyone with fine hair could congregate in one area and the ones with coarse and medium hair could do the same. It would make talking about products a lot easier. The letters and numbers don't give any information about hair type except what the curls look like.

    Noticed in your siggie you said you were having trouble with build-up etc. An ACV has always done wonders for my hair and scalp. If you haven't already tried it, it might help.

    Kind regards,

    Hi Gabi,
    Thanks for the info, I do the baking soda and acv about one a week, it helps with the itching, but I can still find the white stuff under my nails. I must be doing it wrong, cause everyone swears by it. Can you just rinse with the acv without doing the baking soda first? Thanks in advance!

    Have only used the ACV.

    I sometimes do an ACV rinse on its own or I will shampoo with a Curl Junkie shampoo (Assurance or Theory) or the CURLS curlicious shampoo, then ACV and rinse with cool water. I do the ACV every couple of weeks.

    I am in no way an expert on any of this stuff, can only say what I've learned from trial and error.

    Generic mousses and gels give me build up and/or itchy scalp. [buylink=http://www.curlmart.com/Kinky-Curly-Knot-Today-p-207.html?utm_source=naturallycurly.com&utm_medium=text-link&utm_content=curltalk-post-text&utm_campaign=kinkycurly-knot-today-leaveindetangler]KCKT[/buylink] gave me a severe itchy scalp apart from the havoc it wreaked on my hair. I know a LI is good for my scalp when there is no itch or build up within 24-48 hours.

    After all that what I'm saying is: Perhaps there is a product, or combination thereof, that you need to cut out?

    I think a fine hair forum is a fine idea (dumb pun intended.) Our hair has to be treated so much differently than coarse or even medium. I struggle with fragility above all other problems. I have the finest hair I have ever seen on a human being--like a newborn ebaby's hair. It takes no force at all to snap it like a dry twig--yes, even my virgin hair! I've never found any fine hair products that really help with regard to volume or thickening or strengthening. Still, it would be nice to have a place for fine-haired curlies to commiserate!
