Well I've been doing the conditioner only hair experiment for 4 days now, and I can already tell a difference. My hair looks a lot less frizzy and my curls have tightened up. Before I had loose curls, now they're more defined. Looks like i just had a permanent. I've been trying all day to take a picture but i can't get it. If i leave the flash on there's a glare on the mirror and you can't see me. If i take the flash off the picture is really blurry. I have no idea how i managed to take the before shot it was centered perfectly in the mirror (another problem, since my mirror is actually 3 mirrors in one) and wasn't blurry. I do the conditioning treatment every other day and on off days I do the coconut oil treatment. I'll keep trying to get a picture.

Chris

does your camera have a focal point? you would need to focus the camera right on the crack between the mirrors, I've had this same problem with my own bathroom mirror pictures.

You just turn the camera around so you can see what you are shooting, through the mirror and snap it like that. No mirror in the picture to cause flash issues.

No i don't think it has a focal point. It's just a simple $50 digital camera.

paula i'm trying to get the back of my hair, not the front.

ditto, I'm sure Ashleigh or Madisyn would help ya out. Have one of them take it outside in light even shade, easiest way to a crystal clear picture with an inexpensive digital camera.
