Hello Everyone! Just wanted to take a quick moment to mention that ESSENCE® magazine has a good article in the January 2013 edition titled ‘STOP HAIR LOSS!’. Most of us at this point are very familiar with many of the causes of hair loss but it is always good to get a refresher on possible ways to minimize hair loss. One point in the article that hit home with me was around the use of chemicals to straighten the hair. If I decide at some point in the future to return to relaxers, I will definitely extend the length of time between touch-ups with blow drying/blowouts rather than roller sets.
