    @shanvy,
    It is sad your son was treated differently by his grandma just due to color. It seems typical of the older ladies of that generation. Thankfully my aunts and parents always came to the rescue.

    Ladies,

    Don't make me J about your long straight natural hair... My one will look frizzy if I don't visit for a hair spa as per the time table. How to make it shining and beautiful naturally?

    PS: I have damaged it by recurrent rebonding, blow dry, color and what not... But, now I want something natural... Perhaps, I am becoming old..

    When there is a thread where I can boast about, neither I see it, nor will any one tag me.notdonesmiley I'm 5' 7 :D:D... of course which was a curse till I was married. All my mom could hear was, where she is going to find a groom for me. Most of the boys I knew were shorter than me hence I could not have a BF either :(:( . Since I could under " fair" for a mallu, my skin tone never bothered me. And being raised in kerala gave me a decent wavy hair which I hated then, but a life saver now as I'm loosing too much hair now.

    Warm up the coconut oil, apply on hair and face ( if you don't have oily skin) generously on the weekends. I leave it atleast few hours. I don't sleep with oil on my hair as I get head ache.

    When ever I decides to shampoo wash my hair, even if i don't have time to keep it for long, I apply generously on my scalp and hair. I have some in bathroom, and some in kitchen.

    I apply coconut oil on my face on daily just before I go to take shower.

    Answer to the OP, I feel its true that fair people are treated better.

    I'm on the fair side and did not have much discussion about my skin color while growing up . My DH is very dark. When we had our daughter, no one asked me if the baby is a boy or a girl, but they asked if the baby look like me or DH. She took the skin tone of my DH and in one conversation my MIL even mentioned they selected me because they wanted a fair child. Dad is their son and they are the grandparents . I think there weren't much I could do there:confused2:. I think their domination played well here as well.:roll:

    @SGBV i don't dye or use any color. due to added stress, i have started having more greys at a alarming speed. when you color, when you go for bonding do a lot of research and not all costly, or branded salons mean healthy, and chemical free. o% chemical means that there is chemical but the percentage being negligent passes through the loophole of not necessary to mention.

    Recently i was going through the whole racks of oil, and most of them were having a major presence of mineral some had upto 80%. though mineral oil makes hair manageable does a lot of harm in the long run.

    i make my own herbal hair oil for weekend and on regular days it is just coconut oil.

    hair wash is from natural products. it is almost a year since we weaned off the shampoo off the rack. my daughter is not so happy about it, but her worry over losing hair has changed her view.
