Current Read: The Science of Black Hair

I am sooo late, but I was browsing on my Nook and saw that I had plans to buy this book. Well, I finally purchased it on my e-reader Saturday. Honestly, I cannot believe that I am just getting this book so late. It is so hard to put it down.

I am not far into the book, may page 50, but I am taking my time reading. Additionally, I am going back over portions and sections over the book to gain a better understanding. Being a science major in college, I can appreciate the science behind hair, but I absolutely had no idea! Every time I turn the page (or tap my screen), I am learning something new. There are a few things that I have learned that has really opened my eyes thus far.
1) I have learned about how the body's state of dehydration can have an effect on the scalp. I cannot make this up.
2) I have learned about how hormones help hair in regards to growth.
3) All hair follicles and hair strands are not in the same cycle and will not go through the same cycle together.

I am taking this book to heart. I have been on a HHJ for years with very little progress as far as length. After reading these few pages, I plan on continuing to create the best regimen for my hair type. I struggle with a hair regimen horribly. Since starting my HHJ, I have never had an implanted regimen. When I think something is going to begin work, it never works out and I end up having to change it. I am hoping that this book will help guide me on a path of truly understanding my hair where I can FINALLY have what I have always wanted: a regimen.

Thanks for reading.
