    Seems like the back left corner of my hair always either gets wet in the shower or gets sweated out, its annoying either way. Hair appointment on Friday, I'm ready.

    I saw that Eco styler coconut gel but I didn't know they had a castor oil & flaxseed one. Where do they sell this?!?! I haven't seen it in stores

    Thank you. It went well. I got a trim too because my wool coat chewed up my hemline.

    My poor hair really needed some protein. Smh! I waited too long to do one.

    I wash my hair every week but lately my scalp has been itching more than usual. After I rinsed out the conditioner (I don't apply conditioner on my scalp), I saw my scalp looking whitish. I scratch a small area and noticed white gunk underneath my finger nail.
    Ended up ordering the Philip Kingsley scalp exfoliation mask and heritage psoriasis shampoo.

    That exfoliation can be so important. I don't put conditioner on my scalp either but there is no way to avoid it. I hope the PK works out.

    Brought my hair back to life for work tomorrow. I have been doing good taking my Manetabolism and keeping my ends moisturized.

    Okay. Castor oil is making my scalp itch directly after I spray my Xcel 21. Once it dries, it stops though.

    No castor oil , no itchies.

    I had hoped to hold off on a trim until July, but looking at my ends in the shower... no splits, just very uneven. Got to get this done in March!

    I've been natural for 2 or 3 years. I can't remember exactly when I started transitioning.

    I think I'll be back to relaxed by the summer.

    I tried.

    I did a color and cut this weekend. I feel so refreshed. Took my hair from an inch or so past APL to Sl where the back is horter than the topand sides to add some fullness and general style to my hair. I love that my hair took less time to style, i was actually relieved. I have been dreading wash and style days. No I am wondering if I should cut it even shorter.

    Do you just prefer relaxed or are you having issues with your natural hair?

    My hair was easier to deal with when I relaxed. It also grew faster. My natural hair has been more work with less results. Plus it's short and I look horrible with short hair. I miss having length. I miss not having to work so hard to get my hair to look half way decent. My hair never looks neat. I also feel that I was more attractive as a relaxed head.

    Well at least you tried. I've been natural for almost three years. Shrinkage is a beast. I wasn't used to short hair either, but I finally don't look bald headed anymore. Hair definitely shouldn't be stressful so do what's best for you. Just remember that even if you perm it you hair still be the same length.

    Also have you looked into non perm straightening like design essentials, aveda, tms etc?

    I have my hair straight right now using the Dark and Lovely anti reversion cream. My hair has length and, overall, I just look well put together with it striaghter. I know it sounds horrible, but I just don't look very nice with my natural hair while it is short.
    I just feel I look better when my hair is longer.

    Besides moving it around... How do you prevent breakage from frequent ponytails/buns??

    Your hair accessories are important too. You don't always have to have your hair going straight all back. YoI can have a side part, or middle and swoop your hair to the sides, then go back. Use smooth hair pins, chopsticks, hair ties, spin pins, etc...

    My struggle for the past week: "I want to wear this cute sweater but if I wear it, I'll have to wear my hair up in a bun and my braidout looks too good for me to wear it up...better pick another top to wear."

    "Oh, that's cute. Wait...nope. I'd have to wear my hair up for that one too"

    I'm ready for warmer weather so I don't have to worry about my ends rubbing against fuzzy sweater material and I can wear my hair down and look cute in peace.
