    To say the very least, in addition to a plethora of problems, I've been suffering with undiagnosed, extremely, itchy, painful, invisible crawling, scabby, inflamed, acen ridden, hyperpigmented, non healing, open wounded, oozing, unexplainable, irritating, diseased skin on scalp, face and body, beyond my control & 8th no success despite through daily skincare, for the last 9+ years and I am at a major loss. Its very uncomfortable and actually takes up hours of my day, that I could be, should be, would be doing other things, bring productive etc. I try not to scratch, believe me, but the itches are indescribably bad, like ghost lice or something, crawling about, but when I've been GP and Dermatologist they find nothing. This is a form of torture. It's affecting so many areas of my life. I do ahce a very disadvantaged, stressful and problematic life so that probably doesn't aid in the healing prices, but as I said considering my skincare, and healthy diet, hygiene, self care etc, it doesn't make any logical sense why I've got all these diseases. I want born with nay problems. It's all started around age 12,but has got significantly woes in last 9 years. I'm in mid twenties. I've no qualficitaions, I'm unemployed, depressed, isolated, and many other disadvantages and I truly believe that these skin issue shave negatively affected me from moving forward. I feel and look hideous and there are many things I can't do. Daily cleansing and skincare applications is so painful and has shown no positive effect. I am getting worse and I'm typing through tears and agony and itchy hell and don't know what to do! How can I identify what exactly these wounds on my scalp, face and body are and how can I finally eradicate it completely? Thanks in advance.

      Have you tried seeing a dermatologist? I would start there if you haven't already. Or see a different one of you have. Coconut oil, grapeseed oil and jojoba oil are all wonderful places to start if ACV is too much to begin with. They all have many healing properties. I wish you the best of luck and hope you get relief soon. <3

    The Blueberry Bliss Leave-In Conditioner actually has 2 proteins in it, for those of you who have protein sensitive hair. They are towards the end of the ingredients list, however. Learned this from Swavy Curly Courtney. :) I personally just bought it FOR the protein- excited to try it! 😊

    Have you ever heard of L.U.S. curl products. I just bought them trying to repair my hair. They helped a little bit but ifs still struggling. Just wondering what your thoughts are on the product. I think my hair might need protien. So glad to have found your channel.

    I came here because my hair stretched and bounced back, and wouldn’t break! I tried over and over, and it wouldn’t break. I thought it was a break test, and I had to figure out based on how it broke. But I think that means I am balanced! THANK YOU!

    if your hair feels really clean and silky right after a wash day ..... is that the "mushy" texture you were talking about when having too much protein?

    OMG Janelle thank you so much for sharing the above video! I'm less than 1 month into my curly girl movement and I've also STOPPED using what you've suggested. But I was becoming a little frustrated with what to do after my first wash day. So today I followed your suggestions on the video and I have to say my hair looks pretty darn good for day 4! Heck it looks even better than my day 2 hair from this week. Thanks again for all the great videos you're sharing! I'm looking forward to continuing my journey!

    Hi! I really enjoy your videos! Thank you for sharing! Quick question: is the Righteous Roots oil cruelty free? I cannot seem to find that information anywhere. You mentioned that most of the other products are, but you didn't mention if for this one. They say they are on the website, but there's no actual CF statement (that I've found) which I find a little hinky. The company isn't mentioned on Cruelty Free Kitty, Leaping Bunny, PETA, or anywhere that I can find. *sigh* But I could really use a good scalp stimulating, grease-free massage oil. Thanks!

    He, Jannelle! I haven't gotten through all of them yet, but I'm LOVING your videos! Couple quick questions. I have low porosity hair and was thinking of giving the the Woman to Woman shampoo and conditioner you mentioned a try. I've been using Innersense since June and I'm not so sure they are a good fit for me...especially the stylers. I'm still working on process as well, though, so maybe it isn't the products. May I ask how often you cleanse with the W to W shampoo and would you consider it a clarifier to the point of it removing excess build up like Kinky Curly Come Clean or a Malibu Undo Goo-type product? Also, I'm SO afraid of using a leave-in b/c my hair is baby fine and just poofs and is so soft. Would a leave-in make that worse? Thanks! :)

    You know nothing about porosity ! Just putting a bunch of hair in a bow full of water...doesn't mean you know ur porosity ! Every other natural/curly/wavy youtuber is filled with all the wrong informations and misleading millions. Stephanie from The Curl Ninja is the only reliable source I found so far.

  • Stella Moon
    Stella Moon 17 days ago

    sorry if this is a really dumb question but if i go to a normal hair stylist.. can i just ask them what is wrong with my hair and what they can do/ what i can do on my end, to repair it? i got a haircut a few weeks ago... i showed the lady my hair and she said “yeah it feels like spaghetti but i couldn’t tell you why” and suggested i chop it off, so i cut it to my shoulders, but the problem is not solved. my hair is the same, just shorter and too short to style

    Does anyone have any tips for my hair!? My hair is super healthy after taking care of it for like 6 months. Ive always had “good” genes for my hair. It healed super fast! But i feel like its so rich and packed with moisture that its actually weighing it down! I never have dry/brittle hair. Ive dyed it and all that stuff but my hair doesn’t change! I have like 2b 2c on top and 3a hair on the bottom. And the very top and in front my hair is sometimes 2a because it just refuses to cooperate with me lol.

    This is adorable!! My story is a bit different. We met in the 80’s as teenagers hanging out in the local mall. He had a girlfriend and we were casual friends. In 1991 I got married and moved from Indiana to Florida. In 2006 we reconnected on MySpace lol, I wasn’t on there long. In 2010 I got divorced and moved back home to Indiana. In 2011 we reconnected on Facebook and started talking, he was married. In 2012 I realized I loved him. But, we didn’t see each other in person until 2017, when I was in a relationship and he was still married. 2018 my relationship fell apart, he got divorced so I decided to let him know how I felt, it was mutual and we’ve been together since February of this year. Every day is wonderful. We both wish we’d have gotten together back in the 80’s. But, I believe we both had lessons to learn. I’m just thankful that we found each other. I am so happy that you found your mate! ❤️❤️
