    Trying to find where to post this video.



    I made three wigs for 2019 on the sewing machine.

    Wig 1: replaced the closure on a straight hair
    Wig 2: resized a straight wig that was too big
    Wig 3: made a glueless frontal wig with curly hair

    First time straightening in over 2 years! I got some long layers added ,and curled it for volume. I plan to milk this for about 3 weeks. My roots puffed almost immediately though lol. When the curls drop I'll actually do my length check, but as of now I'm satisfied. I did make myself use 'lower' temps I usually press with 450 degrees but this was a combo of 410 and 430 with my EAP.

    Edit* looking at this pic makes me want to add some highlights but I'm still scared of bleach lol.

    I’m in the midst of washing my hair after taking down my yarn braids, so I thought I’d snap a pic real quick. I slathered some leave in spray, Knot Sauce, and Shea Butter while I was removing the shed hair.

    @Chicoro it’s not down to my thighs but it’s inching its way down :lachen:

    I wore the curls for about a week, maintained with pin curls. My roots didn't hold for nothing lol, a week later I flat ironed on low heat to see the length and to trim. Major trim coming soon but for right now I'm holding on to those bad boys lol. My hair has never been this long, looking forward to adding rice water into my routine and wearing my hair out a little more often. I plan to do a faux wand curl set with my flexi rods in a couple of days.

    Not sure if I have definite regimn but I'll try lol.

    For 2018 my hair was in a protective style for about 70% of the time.
    I used lace wigs (glued down) sew ins, faux ponytails/ buns as my most common styles.
    I wash biweekly even with my protective styles. No specific brands of shampoo or anything.
    I began regularly prepooing with TMC 6 months ago , really softened out the tangles before wash day. 8/10 I also follow up with a random DC.
    I moisturize as needed ( usually every other day) with S Curl, and drench with random oil to seal.
    I also really like the TMC Butter ( love this very heavy and moisturizing)
    I also dye my hair jet black quarterly with 20 volume developer and joico permanent hair dye.

    I have been natural since 2013 but plateaued around 2016 but recently my hair has been growing. I attribute the growth to finding out what products actually moisturize my hair ( TMC & S Curl) and protective styling.

    I blow dry my hair when I braid it up for my protective styles, my hair is much more manageable when blown out.

    I rock occasional wash and goes when I feel like wearing it down, in between styles.

    I use JBCO on my scalp when I remember too ( weekly)

    I trim quarterly usually I skipped my last one as you can see in the pic lol.

    I have been using I think for a little over 3 months still on my first tub. A little goes along way, I love this for moisturizing my blown out/ stretched hair doesn't cause any reversion.

    From earlier. No flash, just natural sunlight. Literally just X21 and the Melanin Twist Creme.

    I fell asleep before stretching my hair. I was “air drying” :wallbash::lachen: If you can’t tell, it’s shrunk to my scalp. I’m just doing some twists to hold me until I get my hair trimmed this week.
