    I love being a cosmetologist not only because I love doing hair but for the discount on hair products and tools! lol Expensive salon products are dirt cheap (well at least compared to retail price). I LOVE it! it has unleashed a new level of pj-ism for me LOL

    can't wait to quit this job and for a telecommute position that I am adamantly starting to look for beginning tomorrow. then I can get back to crochet and braids for protective styles. hate answering/ignoring/ducking white women coworker 5011 questions when I switch my hair up, so it's been tuck and rolls for 1.5 years which has not given any retention at all.

    Alikay naturals shea yogurt is a fantastic sealant. Makes my hair so soft but ive been over doing it. I wonder if it has humectants? My hair is a tad poofier.
    Found a wooden paddle brush at whole foods for 8 bucks. Im excited to try it this weekend.

    I get a few of those. It is genetic, just like having a variety of curl patterns and textures on one head.

    I'm about to mix whgo and minoxidil to help fill in my temple and hairline. I really need to chill on wearing the wigs but I don't feel like doing my hair.

    I read your post in hits and misses about glycerin. We probably arent too far from each other, but glycerin has been kind to me this winter. Odd.

    Target redid their natural hair aisle, added more products (new brands or products they didn't have at 1st from a certain brand) and they added pictures of the creators and have a short background.

    Idk if it was done because of black history month or if this is the new thing pergood or are they going to take it down in March

    Be careful. You could create moisture overload from sleeping with a plastic cap on overnight frequently. I would do it for an hour or so, with the cap on, then take the cap off, and put a scarf on Until your are ready to wash.

    Ditto! I wouldn't do it too often and I only kept the bag on until I went to bed and wrapped it up prior to that. My hair has been insanely dry. I work from home(plus my pregnancy has me anti) and my house is like 27% humidity...everything stays dry....so this is quite refreshing. I didn't even add any product afterwards.

    This is news to me. I will have to check it out. The main reason I never tried TGIN was I never saw a gel. Creams don't generally work for me. Thanks for posting this.

    My target has had the pictures for a few months now. If anything, Im pissed because now I have to co-mingle in the "beauty" aisle.

    It is going to be in the 60s for an entire week, starting today; half-tempted to water my head daily.

    Supposedly, rubbing your fingernails against each other staves off greying. I don't know about that, but did do it a lot as a kid into my twenties because I loved the feeling of it. Why did I stop?

    I wonder if some people have to do the inversion method longer than others to see results.
