I think there's more overlap than some people think with female growth and reducing mpb

Agree about the "overlap" between male/female hair care. Women have many of the same hair concerns as men. That's why I read and post here.
I peruse the Long Hair Community board on occasion for ideas. Those women are truly dedicated to their long hair!

The thread was interesting, thanks. I had to Google the term "CO." It means, conditioner only. I found this post helpful for how to do it:

Ok, tried it for the first time this morning. Mixed about 3 tbsp. epsom salts with about 4 oz. hot tap water, shook until dissolved. Then mixed equal parts of the ES water with conditioner, about 2 tbsp. each (that was all the conditioner that was left in the bottle), shook to mix. Used that mix to CO my hair. So far, I think I like it - it seems to have perked up my waves that I'd all but lost after I started with henna, and it seems pretty soft as well. It's pouring rain here today, so with the humidity my hair isn't quite dry yet - but the initial result is clean, soft and wavy. It would be beyond fabulous if I also get faster growth out of the deal!

I've used this twice and it's working great! My hair had been a bit hard to manage and the results with this are very nice.

I use the method I posted above, with a twist: I first comb apple cider vinegar through my hair. It has a clarifying action and I figure if I'm going to be using
conditioner instead of shampoo, I have to be careful of product buildup, which can really mess up my hair.

I leave the vinegar on for a while, usually an hour or so. Rinse it out, then apply the epsom salt in water/conditioner solution. I'm using coconut milk conditioner, Organix brand.

Thanks again for the tip, hellwig! Very Happy
