    thanks very much for this post, i found it really helpful for my type 4 hair,I have not done anything like that before but i will do it and see.
    you explaine everything really detailed, what is really wonderful for me.. Thanks again!!

  2. I just recently purchased JVN scalp oil. I tend to have a dry itchy scalp but not dry hair although my hair isn’t over moisturized either. Is this something I should be using? Thank you so much, I love the new site.

  3. I love your blog, your posts are always honest and thorough 🙂 and I have a question about overnight masks. I have low porosity wavy/curly hair, would say I have 2c/3a hair. My hair can feel a bit straw-like sometimes and I would like it to be softer. That’s why I bought the overnight hair mask from The Innate Life. But after this post I’m a bit worried that my hair will suffer from hygral fatigue. Should I not leave this mask on for the whole night an maybe just for a few hours? What would you advice?

    1. I don’t recommend ever leaving any kind of treatment, mask or even wet hair over night. It’s not good for the hair and will cause damage such as breakage, hair loss, over moisturisation and hygral fatigue. Don’t leave any treatment on your hair for longer than an hour. If your hair is feeling straw like, make sure you’re using the right products and ingredients for hair, as opposed to leaving something on longer. I hope that helps. However, if you’d like to book in for a 1:1 Curl Clinic. They’re a 30 min consultation via video where we go through all the products you’re using and the issues you’re experiencing. I then put together a routine and recommend products to suit your hair’s needs, your budget and any other requirements you have. If that’s something you’re interested in, please fill out this form, and I’ll get back to you via email with all of the details. http://www.curlycailin.ie/contact

  4. My hair is lije Gabriella’s in that ut tends to get overmoisturised. However, I’m having to use a medicated shampoo and even with deep conditioning afterwards my hair is feeling dryer and more tangled.

    Would you recommend a pre poo treatment in this instance?

    This information really helps! I’m just starting my natural journey. After I read about pre-poo, I scrolled down and seen these words, “Don’t Give Up!” This was for me! I’m so encouraged even more on my curly journey!

    1. Aww that’s exactly why I wrote it! So I’m so glad to hear it resonated with you and helped inspire you to keep going and not give up!

    Oh wow! this is so helpful. I will try it out for my curly hair

  7. I love this new collaboration and reading from different perspectives. My hairtype is similar to Cailin’s but I still prepoo occasionally when my hair is super tangled. I love the African Pride prepoo! It has amazing slip and is super lightweight. I am just starting out as a curly hair blogger and it is so difficult but this blog is one of my inspirations! Thanks for reading this comment!
