    The scarf would work.

    I should have kept reading before I posted my question. They need to do a survey or something before they discontinue products.

    Are any of you a Scarfy? You wear your head scarf from the time you get home until you leave the next day?

    My DH complains about it incessantly but I can't help it. It's as if my scarf is a bandage and I need to protect/heal my hair after being out all day. Even if I want to enjoy my hairstyle a little while longer, I still can't help but tie it up. Even during sensual moments (I only leave it out if I'm in character) - I just can't have my hair out. Is it just me?

    I'm somewhat of a scarfie. The blasted thing doesn't like to stay on my head while I'm asleep though.

    Oh girl I stay with a scarf on my head! Anybody that gets with me, knows I will protect my hair at all cost! Lol they know when I do get jazzy, or have my hair out, I'm about to cause havoc on town! lol
    If he starts to complain, I would just jazz it up a bit, put on small earrings (studs) wear some lipgloss, make sure my eyebrows are groomed (not filled in). I would wrap the scarf differently. Plus, my son has a habit of grabbing and pulling on my hair. He always has to touch my face, or put his arm around me! Lol would somebody tell that child I don't like people touching my hair and face? Lol

    Too funny!!

    Good idea about jazzing it up. I will see if that can be a compromise.

    In the pink...Sometimes this is me. I think what I do for my head will have to work on everyone's head(sometimes). But I have proven it to almost be true seeing that I have used the same exact regiment on my niece's hair and it worked, my sister's hair when she lets me and it worked, on a boyfriend's hair and it worked and my mother's when she lets me.
    Also through them I have become a master braider.

    I washed my hair last night on a Monday night so I had to just let my hair finish drying at work in a bun.

    This is how I air dry at work. When I go home I'll seal with my BlueMagic. Picture taken at this very moment. This phone does not take very clear pictures.

    We were at dinner last night and I don't think I saw one relaxed head in the whole restaurant. Natural hair everywhere! It was so beautiful. So many beautiful styles and hair patterns. It was awesome!

    Oh I know!!!!! This excites me so much! I have been noticing the same here on the North East! Once my mother and I were at a flee market buying earrings and the lady vender was natural, my mother is natural, I am natural and another natural comes walking up. So a group of four beautiful naturals standing there it was awesome.

    ETA: When you're natural you cannot help but to notice all the other naturals. I know that this amazement that we have for "our" type hair will never die. Just like other races admire their hair. Now we can admire ours!

    upload_2017-9-13_13-6-0.png Hi Guys, so this what my hair looking like right now. There are no white spots or gray hairs, it's just shine. My hair feels so soft guys! I sealed hair last night with my BlueMagic. My hair will stay like this for two weeks.

    I don't know who this lady is, but this has been my goal for the past year! I saw this picture and saved it like "this is where I wanna be."

    How come there aren't any short-haired ladies with twas like myself around this forum?
    I find myself more concerned about the growth of my twa than the rest of my hair. I'm also more excited because I assume it is an easier job to retain length on shorter hair? At the same time I am not very excited because even if my hair does grow, shrinkage won't let me be great with me growing out natural this time :(

    Anyways my question is: what length challenge should I join now?

    There are plenty of TWAs on here. They will chime in soon.

    I can tell you what helped to grow out my TWA (which I barely remember having, time flew by so fast) is Curl activators lol. My hair was so moisturized that it didn't have a chance to brake.

    I hardly remember having a twa that's how fast it grew out.

    I am officially over my box braids. I love how it looks and how well I have been able to keep it up but I miss my hair. One more week makes 8 weeks, then I can go back to washing and deep conditioning my hair for a month. I will then get box braids again for another 8 weeks. I will try to maintain this schedule through 2018.

    Box braids are a love/hate protective style and I always feel exactly how you feel when I get to about week 6. A few weeks after they have been removed, I'm ready for some more. A vicious cycle.

    Grey hairs are lovely to me, naturally highlighting the hair.
