Thank you. & no, its just damp.
Length checks were way more fun when I would get my hair flat ironed. Seeing progress on hair that shrinks a different amount every day is hard.
I need a shape up haircut, but who knows when that will happen.
I have a love/hate relationship with Cantu Leave In. It lacks slip and it doesn’t seem really “moisturizing” while applying it. It also feels like its weighing my hair down. However, after it dries, my hair is so defined. Not very voluminous either but definitely defined, frizz free & shiny.
Im told liquid is better anyway because your body absorbs it better and you get the full benefits vs pill form you only get 75%. Not sure if this is different with gel tablets though.
Ohh that’s good to know. I’ve also been hearing good reviews on the liquid biotin. I just received my first order (see attached pic). I’ve been doing the pill form off and on, But I really need to stick to my regimen so I can have the length and strength I desire. Getting my hair to look healthy and luxurious is a new discovery since I’ve gotten older. My hair started to thin (the actual strains); now they are strong, thicker and healthy. I wish I would have enjoyed my hair more when I was younger; however, the flip side to that is I’ve found a fun hobby and I enjoy growing my hair out and discovering how to change the structure of my strains.
Happy hair growing my LHCF family!
Thank you ☺️
Ok so it’s not just me...I’ve been adding oil and another leave in to my Cantu now until it’s gone. I have soo many other products lined up in my cabinet that I need to try out ♀️.
I spritzed with xcel21 this morning and just massaged my scalp with the cream. Maybe I’ll cowash tomorrow. Maybe not
So I just blew out my hair for the first time since December. My measurements must have been off cus my hair has definitely grown!!! I’m about 2 inches away from BSL, so even with trims I should (fingers crossed) make it there by the end of the year!!! Im dying to have my hair straightened, haven’t flat ironed since last August.
@NaturalShe94 gorgeous gorgeous gorgeous. I want to be like you when I grow up!
I'm disappointed to heae SM discontinued the lo-po . It worked lovely on my hair. The conditioner is bomb. Even the shampoo seemed to detangle my tresses
I've been using the Garnier honey something or nother. Bouught at Walmart cause I didn't feel like going to Target
Kreyol Essence works really nicely for my hair too, but I need them to lower their prices with all the hair I have on my head
It seems pretty heavy already, adding to it just seems like it’ll weigh my hair down even more. What do you add to yours?
Lol!!!! Your compliment cracked me, thank you though! Your hair is so full and beautiful by the way.
Ill check those products out, thank you!
Kreyol Essence has items on sale for mother's day. I haven't checked them out, just told my sis and daughter to buy for me. LOL
How did you like the liquid biotin? How do you take it? I read some do under the tongue or gums.
I was taking a 5,000 mcg biotin gummy, but been reading that liquid is best for absorption.
this first one is the 5k mcg one that i finished recently. i liked it better although it is super sweet
the second one is the 10k one i have now... its blah. i should try to regularly get it under my tongue, but i just swirl it around and squeeze the doppler (it only fills up about 1ml) and take it
i can't tell if either are really working because i already get quite a bit of hair growth and i am also taking hairfinity. i will continue to take it, though. i don't think its hurting
I add olive oil, black castor oil and mix it with another leave in. My 4c hair seems to love the thicker consistency. Then I seal with shea butter.
Wow you’re 4c too?
It’s been 7 days since I started using xcel21 again (cream and spray.) after the 21 days I’ll do a progress pic
I finally took down my mini braids. While I loved the low maintenance, I will never do braids that small again. My hair just looked a frizzy mess, lol.
I thought I was keeping my hair moisturized, but four dreads that formed in my crown proved me wrong. It took “mad” conditioner to loosen the shed hair in those dreads. I’m very thankful that I didn’t lose any hair.
Overall, my hair is healthy and it grew very well in braids. I’m going to attempt to install knotless braids this weekend. My goal is to keep my hair braided and moisturized until July 1st.
Below is my progress from 16 March to 4 May. I fought hard not to trim my hair. I will wait until 1 July.
Sorry that I haven't checked in in a while. I will posting my pics tomorrow since I will be doing a protective style.
Yesterday’s length check. I’m shooting for waist length by December. My natural-versary is in August so that would be a nice gift.
Do you mean hip length, for example wear your pants rest? It looks like you are grazing or at your natural waist to me. Either way beautiful progress.
Looks like you're at waist to me, too.
You’re definitely WL girl!
You're definitely going to get to WL by December.
@Prettymetty definitely wl to me too
@keranikki thank you first telling us that the braids frizzed. I thought my hair would do that with braids
I redid my mini twists yesterday. I thought they were matting, but they actually didn't. It doesn't take me very long to do these at all. I used aloe vera juice and water to take them down. Then, I used some TGIN curl cream when I put them back in. They are in a top knot right now
The way these rolls are set up I don’t even know where my waist is these days. I’ve put on 10lbs since lockdown
Either way I’m on the grow super hard for the rest of this year. I just massaged my scalp with xcel21 cream and put in my Celie braids. My mom gave me a new wig today. I put some herbal essences ltr cream on my ends also.
New wig who dis?!
I think my new goal is BSL in two braids. Already met my previous goal of APL braids.
