I watched a program on public television about ab African tribe with extremely long hair. Their secret looked like keeping it extremely moisturized. I had hair about two inches long from constant breakage. I tried several products. This one worked best. I don't always use it like I should . I may miss moisturizing for a week or so. But my hair is now long, ranging from 8 in the back to more than 12 inches on top. Im so happy with this product im stocking up today. I wish I could attach pictures of my hair.
