Beautiful hair ladies so full and soft
I am going to attempt to duplicate shea moisture's curl and style milk. I love this product but if I can make much more for what maybe 2 bottles would cost me then why not? I'm going to use a cheapie conditioner (either Aussie Moist or Suave Naturals), glycerin, hydrolyzed silk protein, argan oil, coconut oil and a little bit of shea butter. All products that my hair likes. Now I have no idea how much of each I need to use. Guess I'm gonna play around with it until I get it right.
My hair looks and feels so full, soft and fluffy. I've been using my water and glycerin spray nightly even though it's been humid as heck. My hair really loves glycerin and doesn't exactly frizz in humid weather when I use it. It's more like it wilts lol But it doesn't look bad so I'm just going with it. I've been liking the way my hair looks this week.
I’m gonna be a lazy natural this time. No elaborate styles that take hours of my life unless someone else does it.
Using APB hurry up and grow oil seems to be helping out in my nape area.
I'm thinking of washing more frequently while it's still warm. Maybe every 4 days or so. Now that detangling isn't a nightmare like the first time I tried growing my hair out wash day doesn't feel like a chore anymore.
@oneastrocurlie I might look into that oil when I'm done with this one but then again why fix it if it ain't broke, right? My nape area has always been a struggle and it seems to be thriving this time around. Last night I was twisting the sides of my hair just because I didn't want it to look so flat. When I got to the nape I was like yooo I can twist the hair right in the center in the nape too??? Yeah? It's just that my hair is very fine in that spot so it always looks sparse but when I was stretching the hair out I was like no wait a minute I got some growth there!
Yeah if what you have works I'd skip it. I almost got the njoy oil and was thinking I should see what I have in this stash first. My nape has been annoying since my relaxed days. Keeping it moisturized and using the oil seems to be working well *crosses fingers*

@oneastrocurlie looking good!
Hey ladies, its been a little while, ever since I've updated my iphone I cant post pics directly from my phone anymore. I wanted to post a bunch of pics from Curlfest but cant . Anyways. If you care to see them check out my IG. https://www.instagram.com/nowiamnappy/?hl=en
I also just tried a new product that is now permanently in my hair regimen. I thought I was done with new products for a while but nope. Check out my tutorial for the results.
^^^You went to CurlFest? Too awesome! What is the vibe like?
The vibe was amazing there's so much to do and see. They have a stage and there was literally a soca fete going on and people were dancing, taking pics and video. So you can get as hype as you want or you can chill in the grass and lounge around. There's hair vendors, food and shopping, and it feels like you're at home because everyone there is natural and really chill, I didnt see any fights break out. The only thing I didnt care for is that to me it's too big of an event, like 30K so the lines were crazy if you wanted to try out a product. My friends and I just brought blankets, booze and food and chilled and danced so we had a good time. I stalked a bunch of naturals and was able to photograph and exchange contact information with them. I would definitely go again next year.
So I can't remember does sulfur turn your hair a different color? My hair looks darker than it has been to me but everyone keeps telling me it looks sort of brownish red. I don't see that at all but like 4 different people have told me. My hair is still doing well though. Soft and growing out a lot. I haven't made my curl and style milk dup yet but hopefully I get time to do it soon. I'm excited.
Sephora sells Moroccanoil products. I wants to try their intense moisture mask. I've only ever used the oil and I like it and it smells good so hopefully the conditioner isn't a disappointment.
Finally cut off all the demi permanent damaged hair and starting all over again:
Gorgeous!!! I love your HAIR!!!! Look at your curls!!
That second pic is everything, Aggie! Love it! I didn't know you cut your hair recently.... Good look.
Thanks honey . It was needed because of all the damage I had from demi permanents. I will be sticking with henna from now on since it's the only coloring system that works for me .
I love it, your curls are poppin
I did my wash and go different yesterday. Not a new technique, just new to me. After rinsing my DC, while my hair was still soaking wet, I applied a bunch of conditioner (not the one I dc'ed with) and worked it through my hair. I rinsed a little out then scrunched what was left into my hair. Then I scrunched in some gel. Diffused a little and done.
I like the results. My hair is defined and not a frizzy poof ball.
I posted a sleek bun pic on IG and a few followers requested a video, so I made a video. I was really surprised at how hydrating the Taliah Waajid Curly Curl Gello made my hair. Are yall still using eco styler gel or do you have any other recommendations?
I like renpure curling jelly. I want to try UFD curl magic.
My hair is progressing nicely. I've accepted that I won't ever have super thick hair. My fine strands are just fine though. I'll trim sometime this month.
No more letting my hair shrink completely...it took almost 2 weeks to get the tangles out. I'm wearing my hair straight right now. Hell, probably forever. I'm just relaxer free...
does Renpure provide a strong hold?
Yup it does. Gives a nice gel cast. Try looking for it at a Marshall's or TJ Maxx.
I will incorporate some Marley hair In my style for tomorrow, just because.
Thank you again for providing me your hair regimen . My hair feels so much healthier and I absolutely love the curl juice.
YAY! You're welcome. I will never stop using the juice, It's a permanent staple.
What is this curl juice you speak of @I Am So Blessed ? I may need that in my life .
I love your hair @NowIAmNappy.
