    Here's the deal every summer I'm sweating, swimming everyday so perms are a no option. Last year I would wash and braid my hair every night. Unbraid it it the morning and rock it like that.

    But I had two pretty severe problems
    1. My hair was mad dry.
    2. It was breaking off a lot

    Do I really need to cut my hair off to go natural?
    Does anyone know a moisturizer?
    Or any other tips

    I don't understand. Is your hair permed now? And yes washing every day is excessive unless you're white. Have you thought of rinsing or no pooing?

    going back to my fro days when i was swimming a lot....
    if u wash ur hair everyday you have to grease ur scalp everyday...
    without that ur scalp with get very dry and ur hair will break off at the ends
    from lack of nutrition/moisture....
    i'm glad i got these locs now....much easier....lol

    one love

    Rinsing and no-pooing sounds like the way to go. No-pooing is using conditioner but not the shampoo. Washing your hair everyday is extremely damaging unless like I posted earlier, you have caucasion hair. Can you go down to like once every 5 days?
