Okay, I'm new the whole 'natural' hair thing, as many of you may know. So I'm gonna need a little help/advice. How often should one condition with protein? Not as often as one with relaxed hair, right? How often do YOU protein condition? I was also wonderning, as I've begun to experience, natural hair has a harder time absorbing moisture than that of relaxed hair. Also, would I be able to brush again, if so, what brush would prove to be the best kind? I never brushed with my relaxed hair, but I know that since my hair a different texture, it can be treated differently and has its different needs as well. So, can you ladies help me out here. I'm just trying to find the best way to care for my hair. I've also found out that my hair has a cork-screw pattern to it. So cute! I really don't remember what my natural hair looked like 'cause I've been getting my hair relaxed since before I can remember (maybe four-years-old? somewhere aroung there). Please, clue me in here on the advice. Thanx a lot!
