    Now that I’ve received all my BF orders I realized I didn’t do that much damage. This could’ve been a lot worse lol.

    That is a really good husband that you have been blessed with. No matter the journey, things seem to be a little easier when you have someone to share each step with. Your stash will deplete soon so that you can start over with products you know will be great for your hair.

    I used to be okay with kanekelon braiding hair as long as I soaked it in ACV but I noticed with the last two installs that my scalp was irritated something terrible. I'm going to see if a double 2-hour soak will stop the irritation because I love box braids.

    Your hair will be patiently waiting until you get the opportunity to TLC it. Take care of yourself.

    Thanks. It has rained all week too, but Friday when it's sunny I plan to wash, dc and style my hair. I'll put my wig on vacay for a while.

    We definitely have our issues, too, like everyone, but I definitely have a lot to appreciate.

    And, yes, I believe you will have a great guy and a great love. You will attract it and prepare yourself to have it. :yep:

    You know, that is exactly what I have been doing! I have been getting faithful with Jesus more and eating better. So I can compliment my future husband. I have been trying to find my purpose (because I know I have one!) because I know that my husband will have a vision for his life, I better have one too!

    What did it do you. Over the summer I had Marley twists in somehow my scalp got infected or something. Anyway I had this huge bump in my scalp. When I took the braids out all my hair in that braid came out. I had a big ole bald spot.

    Lmaoooo I had an "I used to have long hair until I decided to cut it off." experience today.

    A girl was asking what I do with my hair and I was explaining some things, including the importance of a shower filter and how I use henna.
    This other girl butts in and says "You should stop wasting money on henna. Your hair isn't even red."
    So I calmly explained to Girl 1 that I use it for conditioning but that in the sun my hair turns red and I showed her a picture.
    So Girl 2 started saying how she doesn't use a shower filter and she doesn't spend money on hair products.
    Girl 1 and I kind of ignored her and kept discussing things.
    Girl 2 butts in again and says "Oh I had long hair but it was too much work so I cut it off."
    So I told Girl 1 that I only spend a few hours on my hair a week and that I could recommend some more things if she wanted.
    Girl 2 then brought up her "natural hair guru" cousin and started showing us pictures of her cousin's hair and hair stash.
    Girl 1 then said politely, "Well I just want to hear what Colocha does because her hair looks very juicy and health."

    Oh. My. Gosh. :eek: This came up in my suggested vids just now and I knew I had seen it earlier. Those memes killed me!! And the guy in the background, too! :lachen:
    I’m glad she could laugh about it.

    Some thoughts

    What happened to 4b hair? It seems you’re either 4a or 4c now, not seeing as much mention of 4b hair outside of the forum now

    What’s up with type 3s claiming 4c

    Why are type 3s who claim type 4c so adamant about being type 4c

    Why do ppl ask about hair type with blurry photos taken a quarter inch from their scalp

    Why do so many Youtubers claim hair regimens like “every Saturday I whip up and apply my cocosheapassionfruit with flakes of unicorn and the freshest Caribbean saltwater as my prepoo, then detangle my 3A curls for 3 days, ooops no I’m actually a 2C imposter, then shampoo, do a hot oil treatment, mud wash, condition with my special conditioner (details in next vid lol lol) deep condition with suave mixed with herbs and spices (sorry guys I can’t remember what I used LOL LOL), soak my hair in banana leaf tea infused with cold brew coffee for 3 days, and then detangle again for 3 hours and use *insert product here* as my leave-in, if you want to try it use my coupon code sjgdjskxjxj” LIKE WHO ACTUALLY DOES THAT

    Dont come for me if you feel some kind of way :lol: these are my thoughts as I eat my after dinner cookie :)

    I think single strand knots are mean thoughts that you either think about yourself when you are in pity mode or evil thoughts people think about you.
    Knowledge and Patience with yourself as you undo the knots is the same Patience and Knowledge that takes you out of pity mode and helps you deal with miserable people.

    I'm going to bed now.

    Facts tho!! Folks will pick out their 3c hair and claim they’re 4c and spend 1/2 a day detangling with their fingers and a sewing needle :drunk::drunk:

    I’m not doing any update, length check, comparison, etc pic posts until April. I’m not flat ironing my hair, I’m not pulling on nothing, none of that. Lol I have already shown a year’s progress, so it’s pretty much a wrap until next year in the spring. I’m just focusing on retaining my growth, and working on my setback recovery. I will document, so when the time comes. I can share my 4 month progress.

    Why this White guy ask me, "How often do y'all wash your hair? Once a month?" I told him I wasn't sure but I will take a poll of Project Managers and get back to him :brucelee:

    #1 Why are people still asking that question
    #2 None of your business
    #3 I know my hair is pretty so just say that instead of asking an insulting question and providing your own insulting answer (he's the office clown so that's why I take offense)

    I know right!!! @ the bolded. They do all these "special" unnecessary routines! All that's needed to retain hair is a simple cotton picking routine and leave it alone!

    What is going on?
