    OK, I found two videos that describe what I did to my hair by happenstance:



    I only used five twists and no styler, producing a strange texture. Well, at least one person liked it.:)

    That would be my last resort, I've had them before and they never got used. Most of them aren't wide enough to fit a rollerset.

    No. I'm horrible with documenting my hair journey through pictures.

    Used Garnier fructis leave in on soaking wet hair, sealed with APB honey body glaze then raked through as I am curling jelly (I think that's the name of it). Diffused upside down for volume.

    I don't believe they make Ultrasheen Duotex anymore. I refuse to buy those old dusty bottles in the bss. I really didn't appreciate this stuff enough in high school.

    Stupid greys, I hates them. I may as well get loc'ed for life in 20 years if this is going to be my future:

    A few on my right side went back to black and I am thankful. I have more on my left side, than right, although my right (main sleep side) is shorter than my left. Go figure...

    Unfortunately their trainee program is a bit too rigorous for me right now. Maybe in the future

    Eta: I just saw your 2nd post. I'm sorry it wasn't a good fit for you. At least you got to meet Dickey.

    Hey! I've seen it and like her results. If you don't mind I would really prefer your review because I know it will be detailed. I can always count on your advice and reviews! Thank you!

    @Prettymetty, Aveda Smooth Infusion conditioner, I like the whole Smooth Infusion line and it's actually what I use whenever I straighten my hair (shampoo, conditioner, smooth infusion style prep). It smells good too!

    I straightened my hair and it looked good for a week now it looks a mess. I have an event this weekend and I don't know what to do it. Not straightening it again. I feel like all I can do is braids :/

    @vevster, a stylist had used that Design Essentials natural line foam/mousse to give me a great twist out. I hadn't thought of trying it for a wash and go.

    I used it last night, and I liked it. After the wash and go, I banded and that messed it up a little bit, but before that, the unbanded wash and go was nice.

    Application of the DE mousse/foam was great! Easily penetrated my sections to coat all strands.

    5 hours? That's longer than it takes me to wash, blow dry & flat iron my hair.

    No my ends need to be cut so I don't feel comfortable rocking one. I love the look on others but it never comes out good when I do it.

    Chile. Sometimes it takes so long I do 5 hours on day one and 5 one day 2. But there's a YouTube 4c lady's video that I just watched that made me change my perspective on what is "detangled" type 4 hair. It made me realize that maybe I was over detangling and working against my texture's natural ways.

    Please try her method because 5 hours is way too long just to detangle. I want to cry for you.

    I was at this exact point last weekend. I started eyeing my 5 lb. tub of Nairobi and was dead set on doing a corrective on my entire head the very next morning but God is so good. And made my crazy behind sleepy so I feel asleep instead of doing my pre-relax preparation. Without my pre-relax preparation, I DO NOT relax my hair. He woke me up and put it in my mind to get a really good deep conditioner and calm down. I went to the BSS store and bought (don't laugh :grin:) Queen Helene Cholesterol conditioner with argan oil. I got home, mixed it with more argan oil, carrot seed oil, tamanu oil and avocado oil and did a 6 hour pre-poo. Washed and deep conditioned over night with same mixture of QH and oils. What a difference!!!

    There was nothing wrong with my hair except ME. My hair had become a desert and all it need was some TLC and moisture to bring it back to health. Curls? Banging. Frizz? Gone. Bounce and shine? Bouncing and shining.

    I truly love my texlaxed hair. Pain in the rear to maintain :cry2: but I love the health and versatility of my hair. I just have to commit to a daily moisture routine just as I did when I was natural if I want to combat the texlaxed blues.

    This youtuber uploaded a video on her curly hair routine. In the description she says she's starting a new series "teaching you how to be wifey material, clearer skin, healthy bodies, deeper spiritual meanings just be the most amazing you and of course how to get those locs on point."

    I'm scratching my head because this child is all of 16. How is she going to teach anyone how to be "wifey material" and find deeper spiritual meaning? :rolleyes:

    *unsubscribes* I just can't with these children on youtube.

    Another great visit to Devachan...

    I had more of an idea what I wanted in a cut and my stylist did just that.

    My colorist gave me some bright pieces in the front for summer.

    The girl that washed me didn't really know how to style but I took over.

    My stylist, April, told me of the following things:

    1. She loves these croc clips: http://www.thewetbrush.com/index.php/accessories/the-wet-clip.html She says they don't snag the hair.
    2. She says the wet brush damages hair. So I'm gonna give mine away (not that I use it anyway, I don't).

    The last time she told me about that mister bottle which I promptly bought.

    Devachan is coming out w/ 2 new deep conditioners...... still being tested.

    Oh no, regarding the Wet Brush. Thanks for sharing. Did she say what kind of damage?

    I suppose I could survive with my Ouidad double detangler comb if I stopped using the Wet Brush.
