Hair Types: Choosing the Best Hair Products
Question: No one ever said that trimming the hair makes it grow faster. Trimming simply helps to stave off split ends, and judging by your photos, you had quite a few. Who wants raggedy ends? Contrary to your book, split ends do lead to breakage! The fact that you take great care of your hair probably greatly decreases the chance of the ends splitting too terribly, but it is a disservice to African-American women to tell them never to trim their hair. Check out Wanakee's hair.... After only 4 years, her hair is nearly to her waist - she is doing something right!!! You implied in your book that her hair "didn't look like Type 4 hair to you"--what does that mean? That perhaps she had an easier time growing her hair like that since she wasn't a Type 4? Her hair actually looks coarser than yours to me.
Your comment about "no one ever saying that trimming the hair promotes hair growth" is incorrect, I have researched hair and I have actual articles where HAIRDRESSERS are actually saying those very words!
(Your comment on "my raggedy hair") Yes, you are correct in that my hair was "raggedy" in the picture. The reason I did that was to prove that just because you have "raggedy" ends, my hair DID NOT stop growing as a result of the "raggedy - not trimmed ends." I have since trimmed my ends, as I have obviously proved my point that growth has nothing to do with trimming. You are correct that it does not look nice but I felt the need to prove my point and the only way to do that is to dispel the myths, by letting my hair grow out "ugly".
(Your comment on Wanakee) - Coarseness has nothing to do with the curl pattern of the hair. White people can have course but straight hair. I have Type 4 hair, which is a tight curl pattern. Judging from her pictures, Wanakee has probably Type 3 hair. The tighter the curl pattern, (Type 4) the dryer the hair is. I surmise her hair is "quote" down to her waist because her hair life cycle is perhaps longer than most African-Americans, combined with a looser curl pattern that is not as dry as the majority of the African American population.
Question: After reading your book, Ultra Black Hair Growth, everything makes sense. Now but I tend to think my hair texture is not like African Americans, it’s more curly or coarse if that's the right definition. Please help me out because to follow your program correctly, that's my set back.
There are 4 hair types and I submit that you are a type 4B (see Andre Walkers book that I talk about in my book in the last chapter) Your hair type is drier than a type 4A but common sense will tell you to increase the moisture to keep it on your head. The best thing that you have found is my book to help you understand your hair. Just keep in mind that your dryness can be eliminated by increasing the moisture. Many women that have your hair texture have benefited by my techniques and I know you will too.
Question: I haven’t read your entire book, but you mentioned the types of hair (i.e. type 3 and 4). Is this information in your book?
No it is not in my book. In my summary pages I tell you to read Andre Walkers book to get this information.
