Vaginal Cream For Hair Growth?

So I was at the local supermarket doing some 'quick fix' shopping for my bare fridge - I pick up a couple of pineapples and head to the counter to pay so I can head home and gorge on what I can tell will be juicy, succulent pineapples (yum!).

At the counter, is an old classmate with whom I'd just had a conversation while shopping earlier - she'd commented on my natural hair and we'd had a little chat. I set my pineapples down and she looks at them and asks quite innocently 'So is that for your hair?'.

Now those who know me, know how hard and loud I can laugh and I truly let go at this point. I mean I know 'Naturalistas' are as adventurous as they come - using everything from Palm Oil  to baby food all in a bid to get perfectly moisturized curls; but pineapples?! loll heck, who am I kidding, there's probably somebody somewhere who's tried pineapple juice as an elixir of sorts.

Which kind of brings me to my topic today - using vaginal cream (Monistat) to boost hair growth.

My 'Accidental' Transition from Relaxed to Natural Hair.

Accidental because it really wasn't planned (cross my heart). As I'd said in my last post, I stumbled upon a video which opened up my eyes to the immense growth potential 'black' hair had - eroding years of doubt and unbelief in my own hair's potential.

I was also at a point where I needed something to consume my mind and this discovery couldn't have come at a better time.

When I discovered Sunshyne at Hairlicious and consequently various hair blogs, forums and sites; my hair was about neck length, scraggly, had broken bits all over, was overly porous, and was just a right old mess really. I was determined from the pictures and videos I'd seen, to make a 'magical' turnaround with my hair and so, armed with the information I was feeding my mind with, my master card and all the excitement of a 5 year old at Disneyland, I got to work.

Now, the one point that was stressed over and over again in pretty much all the blogs et all was 'stretching' your relaxer i.e. extending the time frames between touch ups. This really wasn't  a problem for me as I'd already cut down on my touch ups till I was doing them about 4 times a year.

Hair We Go!

Right from the time I was a little girl, I'd always wanted long beautiful hair - the kind I saw in Indian movies and the glossy magazines my mum brought home; but no matter how hard I wished or how deeply I yearned, it just didn't seem to want to happen.

I distinctly remember an incident from when I was about 6 or 7 years old which was so heart breaking for me then but which is so rib crackingly funny to me today. My mum came home with a jar of  Dax pomade which had a picture of a lady with long hair parted down the side - one half of her hair was past her shoulders while the other was just by her ear; the unspoken selling point being that with Dax your hair could grow from ear length to past shoulder length.
