I started my hair affair in September 2007 after a long and damageing relationship with my microbraids. I would get the braids put in and then leave them up 3 months and take them down by cutting them out!! All the while cutting my real hair with it. I did this for years, now don't get me wrong braids can be good if you know how to take care of them but I did not, so one day after I had taken down my braids I decided to search the web for some ideas on how to take care of hair. I stumbled upon LongHairCareForum and I was home thanks to this site I have seen the light.
