I've been taking MSM for a few months now. I was reading prior threads about it changing the texture of NG and I have to seriously agree. Somehow it only changed the texture of the NG in the back though. The pictures below are proof. My hair has NEVER been that soft in the back as it is now. My whole head was freshly relaxed earlier this month so this is all the new growth since then. I had a problem retaining my ends so I'm working on getting that moisture back up so hopefully I'll keep it all this time. I last relaxed on 6/4/10 - so I'm about 3 1/2 wks post. I slacked off on my sulfur mix because I got tired of the oiliness and the aroma it left behind. But I continued with the MSM (down to 1000mcg from 2000mcg) and just started MN only about 2-3 times just the last two weeks. So this month's growth isn't spectacular so far, especially since there were too many circumstances changed in my regimen. But I feel good now that I upped my moisture. Thanks for listening and looking at my pics. HHG!! The 2nd and 3rd Pics are from the front and middle of my head. The others show the texture change and NG in the back. I was never underprocessed in the back either. It's just a completely different texture. I think I've been taking MSM at least 3 months or so and that's about how much hair in the back that has that texture.
