    Very very nice! Blunt hair grows stronger, I feel like the hairs protect each other or something...

    :congrats:

    I've got the tails of my two braids crossed and pinned up. Before bed, I unpinned and wet them and slathered them in my Shea butter mix.

    As far as my hair nothing too exciting has been going on. I've pretty much just been putting it up in a bun and being low key. I'm still tweaking my regimen to find what works best.

    My cousin finally sent pics from when she did my hair at the end of last year. I hadn't seen the back of my hair and although I tend to lean more towards simple it turned out pretty nice.

    Just checking in. Been wearing braid outs everyday for weeks. Kinda wanna try crochet…

    I’m really proud of my bang growth. My bangs have never been this long!!! Can’t wait to see how far I progress this year!

    Even though I have 4 more weeks in this protective style I'm thinking about the next style and pretty sure I'm going to alternate between kinky twists and my own hair the rest of 2019.

    I like crochet braids but I cant really get to the length of my hair when its braided down unless I'm using a spray. When its in kinky twists I can steam the length and then lightly seal. I get a lot of growth from crochet braids but the ends of my hair tend to need more nursing back to health prior to the next install.

    I'm planning on buying a revair next week Thursday.

    so when I take this next install down ,I'll be able to pamper, and dry adequately as well as trim.

    I concur. It's boring. My ethnic hair when it hasn't seen water? Forget about it, scary. Lol

    Two weeks ago I decided I needed a break and had marley twists put in. I'm shooting for 4-6 weeks.

    I haven't been doing any regular maintenance so starting this week I will oil ( Alikay Naturals Essential Oil )or spray ( Xcel) my scalp at least once a week and massage. Twice a week I'll spray the length of the twists with a leave-in ( SSI Tahiti or Alikay Lemongrass) and seal with shea butter.

    Prepoo'd with steam yesterday using the same mix as before, this time adding some fenugreek-infused oil.

    Rinsed and used a clay mix of rhassoul, c.bentonite, kaolin, honey, silk amino acids, rice water and a splash of ACV. Added Brahmi for my scalp only and left on for about an hr. Hair was soft upon rinsing.

    Followed with a small amount of CRN Coconut Water leave-in, Shea mix root to tip, and put some twists in, tapping gel on my roots and ends.

    I've been wanting to get back into using shampoo bars so I got Jason and the argan oil from lush. I really like it so far and I think it'll be a great travel option.

    Today for wash day I used:
    - Lush Jason and The Argan Oil
    - KCKT
    - The Mane Choice Biotin Infused Styling Gel (I think I still prefer KCCC though)

    I just put my hair up into a bun afterwards.

    I just reached APL today. I’m super excited, so instead of lurking, I’ve decided to join the fun. My goal is to reach BSL by December 2019.
    I will post an official starting picture this weekend along with a detailed regimen.

    Water rinsed my hair today and followed with a rice water rinse that I left to soak for 40mins. Redid my twists with Shea, as they were done for after the rinse.
