I have two questions:

First, I’m transitioning and I realized I have scabbed hair. How do I care/style this?

Second, I also have a 4C curl pattern and low porosity hair. I do co-wash in the shower daily, which helps with manageability. However, with my low porosity, the only time it’s super beneficial is when I incorporate heat. Are daily deep conditions healthy?

What is truly the best way to refresh my low porosity, 4C hair?

Love you for life,

Danielle M.



Dear Danielle M.,

For the scabbing, I recommend you going to see a dermatologist.

You must stop co­washing your hair everyday! You aren’t letting your natural oils fromyour scalp to help your hair; instead you’re drying your hair out. My advice? I would cleanse my hair once a week and if you feel you need to do it more often, then increase to twice weekly.
