    LADIES, it's now been about 4 months, since I first went to Whitney at Her Growing Hands (Frisco, Texas).

    After a thorough shampoo, 2 1/2 hours detangle (yes, 2 1/2 hours), steam treatment, blow out, silk press, and dusting, here are my results!

    If you're curious as to what my hair looked like 4 months ago with my first visit at her salon, here is my first thread: https://longhaircareforum.com/threads/ladies-i-finally-found-my-holy-grail-salon-yes-pics-included.836977/page-3#post-24966097

    And Ladies, thank you for all of your encouragement on this board. Today, I've decided to amp up my vitamin game, so we shall see what the next four months have in store! Happy Holidays!!!

    Ladies, Whitney is the truth.

    I'm not going to get anything for Christmas.



    But these pictures work just fine. Merry Christmas, Chicoro!

    :thankyou:

    Your hair is MAGNIFIGENCE! Check out the dictionary and you'll see these same photos under the entry.

    @miss_a Gogeous hair! I actually saw the pics on IG since I follow Her Growing Hands. She really does a great job of focusing on the health of the hair.

    @miss_a
    Do you use Shea butter on your hair at all? Careful, careful with the response. What you answer could be the difference between having to answer this one question, or being peppered with 5 million questions from now, until eternity. :giggle:

    Lovely. I wish there was a salon in Chicago like this. I need to be stripped of my haircare privileges at this point.

    Amazing! It looks so lush and healthy. You may as well write out your whole regimen now and then keep linking back to it, cause you'll be getting questions galore!

    :love:You have beautiful hair @miss_a. It's so thick, shiny and lush. You need to come back and give us the breakdown, please? The routine, both in and out of the salon, please? The link to your old thread didn't work for me but I think I remember visiting when it was active.

    She ought to be ashamed of herself. Posting these beyond drool worthy, in the realm of Unicorn-dom...photos, and then she has the nerve to write 2 words about the process. Girl, no!

    That's like pouring buckets of fresh blood in shark infested waters. Like them sharks we're going to be asking,"Where's the meat?"

    They're hungry and so are WE!

    This is so beautiful! Congratulations on your progress! I wish I had such thick lush hair but your progress is still very inspiring to me. I think the board needs more posts like this, the same way it used to be in the past. So motivational! Can't wait to read about your regimen.

    No one would be able to tell me anything. The number you have called is no longer in service.

    @Chicoro : I think this clamoring may be more effective if we tag @miss_a !

    Miss_a: Post your detailed regimen, pretty please!

    @LJBFly, thank you! We joined this board, within six months of each other!!!

    @faithVA , thank you for your kind words. Every 1/2 inch is progress!!!

    @Daina, thank you! I will post my regimen in a few moments--but warning--it's not much of a regimen:cry3:
    @Chicoro, your posts always make my day! You said, "MAGNIFIGENCE:bdance:!" Yes! I adore that word. Thank you. And you asked if I use Shea Butter on my hair--not to my knowledge. I have only used Avocado Oil, Healthy Hair Growth Elixir (an oil made by Whitney that she sells in her shop), and NJoy's Oil with Sulfur).

    @flyygirlll2, Whitney truly does focus on the health/integrity of our hair--thank you!

    @LivingInPeace, I read your comment--unbearable--in Prince's voice!!! Thank you.

    @brownb83 and @Lita thank you!!! @Lita, we joined this board, within DAYS of each other!!!

    @Dee-Licious, yes indeed! I cannot wait to hear how your own hair journey is faring!
