Thanks! That was very thoughtful and helpfulReplyDelete
This was well done! Great Job! I have been following your blog for about a year and I have to say it is one of my favorites. Keep up the good work.ReplyDelete
Very clever. Well done JC!ReplyDelete
I love the magazine format. It looks really good. And a good read too.ReplyDelete
Thank you so much for the compliments - I appreciate it :)ReplyDelete
That was wonderful! I would recommend this to anyone who asked me about split ends.ReplyDelete
This is really awesome!!! Thanks for the great info...it's just the way I like it; clear, concise, precise and to the point!!! Take care!!! =)ReplyDelete
The magazine format is excellent! Any plans to get it in print? It would look fabulous in a salon waiting room... :)ReplyDelete
This is fantastic Jc, a big thank you for all your hard work that we so enjoy and use for free. Have a great weekend! :) xxReplyDelete
That was really cool! I love your blog!ReplyDelete
Thanks once more to all!ReplyDelete
Nicki - no plans to go beyond the online edition. I would not self publish (for a physical copy) but who knows, if a publisher does find it to be of interest then I would definitely like to see it spread further :)
Nice. It's great to see you try something new with the wealth of information on this site.ReplyDelete
jc -- confused about the last part. there you say that trimming gives you longer hair, but all you really explain is how trimming will cut off damaged ends.ReplyDelete
but other than that, cool.
sweetafrohair - cutting off damaged ends allows the hair to grow and reach a new longer length. (i.e hypothetically hair stuck at 12 inches when trimmed could grow to 16 inches before stopping once more and then may need another trim to get to 20 inches).ReplyDelete
The study showed that damaged hair does not gain length. It did also show that cutting damaged hair allowed it to reach a new, longer length. In other words trimming is a potential solution to hair stuck at one length.
This was awesome. I remember when you first posted that "why is my hair broken, err... because you broke it!" I was thinking what!?! Truer words have not been spoken. I was combing through tangles, now I use mostly my fingers for my very kinky, tightly coiled hair and in the last month or so what a difference! Thanks so much.
P.S. I still would love to see a picture of your full head of hair, I think we might be hair twins LOL
this is great!ReplyDelete
Just saying thanks again, *huge smile*ReplyDelete
This is so brilliant! I love the way that the information is clear and easy to understand and the diagrams were so helpful, thank you very very much :DReplyDelete
Wow this is a great magazine! I learned a lot from it.ReplyDelete
Oh my, this is fantastic! I can't wait to read it all the way through (in full-screened glory!). Thanks Jc!ReplyDelete
I absolutely love this, I am so impressed. Great job!ReplyDelete
Jc - This is so nicely done. Professional, clean, succinct and informative. BRAVA!!!ReplyDelete
Wow! I love it!!!ReplyDelete
This is excellent!ReplyDelete
JC, I'm a reader based in the UK. Your blog has been a key part pf my natural hair journey. Keep up the good work. It's appreciated!ReplyDelete
You're not even 30? (Yes, I do stalk you all over the internet. lol, I am not that creepy, I promise)ReplyDelete
OMG, I just fell all the way over into some more Jc groupiedom!!!!!
lol Lady Jaye - BGLH is my second home too. I'm going to be 30 next year though and I cannot wait. I'm actually the baby in the family so it feels like everyone has been 30 plus for forever and I want to join the club!ReplyDelete
C'est trop génial !!!ReplyDelete
I'm late but this is fantastic! You go Jc. Off to read the mag in full.ReplyDelete
Thanks for that, it was very informative. Can't wait for the next one.ReplyDelete
JC....This is EPIC, What an idea...love it.ReplyDelete
I love your online magazine. I have been suffering with split ends for the longest. I have long hair but splits all up on the shaft so I'm getting trims every couple of weeks. I have a couple of questions: What products or ingredients have hydrolysed proteins? Also, I've been getting trims every couple of weeks but my hair stylist combs my hair out with a small tooth comb and I can feel my hair snagging and she blowdries my hair on high heat. So would this cause more damage to my hair even though i'm getting a trim? If so what are some safer better ways for me to trim my hair?ReplyDelete
Thanks once more all!ReplyDelete
Mwah - you need to read the magazine!
1. Combs are a major reason for breakage so the small tooth comb has to go!
2. The magazine does show you how to trim hair heat free too.
3. Do a search here on proteins and you will find the original article where commenters list the products they use. I comment on aphogee but it is not the only one.
Yeah I didn't finish reading the whole magazine when I wrote the last comment. I just don't trust myself as of yet to trim my own hair. And I'll try to give my hair stylist a wide tooth comb lol hopefully she'll use it.ReplyDelete
I really enjoyed this online mag!ReplyDelete
this was really usefull, thanks for sharing, cleared alot of things up for me :)ReplyDelete
Really nice job JC!!!! I love scientific perspective vs. "old wives tales of hair care" You think you can put in an Adobe PDF file. I would like to save on my PC as a reference. Like Catherine of Mehandi.com did re her How to Henna book.ReplyDelete
Sorry I'm so late getting to this, however....ReplyDelete
I Love it! Congratulations...no surprise the FIRST page is all about coconut oil :)
I really enjoyed this magazine, so full of facts and no wobble. It has given me a new understanding about my hair breakageReplyDelete
I really enjoyed the book. I just discovered your site and it holds something that I have been searching for in the natural hair community for some time now- FACTS! Which is must better than the yes/no answers followed by opinions. The article on proteins was excellent as well as the rest of the information. I enjoy the magazine idea because it saved a lot of time from searching blogs and forums. I hope you continue to do this. If you decide to move forward with such a venture, I would subscribe!
I love it! Thank youReplyDelete
Well done. As usual, I like your simple explanations supported by scientific evidences. And the design of the magazine is really user-friendly!ReplyDelete
