Tips for growing hair and keeping hair moisturized?
I decided that I want to grow it out and skip past the TWA phase by adding extensions to my hair via box braids. Will box braids help my hair grow? Would it be okay to have them reinstalled continuously period after period?
And I have a very sensitive scalp, so I’m allergic to certain synthetic brands, I haven’t come across hair that hasn’t made me itch like crazy. I recently had some box braids installed with Xpression hair and my scalp was so irritated and I felt like I had lice or bugs in my head and I threw the hair away and had to baby my scalp afterwards, it was terrible. I even tried the ACV but that didn’t help at all.
I heard about this brand called Spetra or Spectra that claims to be itch free, has anyone tried that? If box braids won’t work for me then what alternative could I do to grow my hair?
Sorry if it’s a lot, I just have a lot of questions haha. Thanks.
