    I finally found a way to keep my scarf on all night, and believe me I sleep WILD.

    Y’all ready for this?

    I tie my scarf and put a bonnet on top. Thassit. And some how it doesn’t come off.

    My hair is so incredibly fine. I have a whole head full of mid strand splits, and I think they may be from my Denman. I'm going to get rid of it, and cut my hair back down to a tapered TWA to start over again. Thankfully I love having short hair and it suits me.

    This happened to me, only towards the top of my head. I had pinned it on a nylon "BHB". Do you use one of those? I hope it's not my denman, but I can live without it. I've been favoring wooden brushes lately anyways.

    Ulta has Viviscal hair vitamins half off today ($20 instead of $40) for its Gorgeous Hair event. I bought a couple of boxes just in case. It's a 60 day supply and the serving size is 1 tablet a day. This would be my first time taking them.

    ETA: It says the serving size is 1 tablet per day but the directions recommend taking 2 per day. Why not just say that the serving size is 2 per day?! I know it's because some people would scoff at paying $40 a month for these vitamins! (Now, I'm wondering if I should get more boxes...)

    The front of my hair is only about 1.5 inches from shoulder length :eek: Thats about 4.5 months from now with my growth rate. I can't believe by March 1st I 'll be 75% full shoulder length. It seemed much farther for some reason. I guess I was looking towards achieving apl so much I forgot all about shoulder. Yayyyy!!!

    Any one else feeling lazy because of the cold front? My hair will be lucky to get washed at all this week. And I don't feel bad about it. Having to section, braid, prepoo, wash, dc and blowdry is a lot of work. Then I straighten afterwards. I was doing it every 3 days, but damn I'm tired af. I think I had 1 day off this month for a funeral...

    Sigh. Sadly my hair isn't a priority anymore. I wish I had the time lol

    The back section of my crown refuses to let me be great. No matter how much love or product I give it, it’s always frizzy at the roots and about 4 inches down the shaft. It’s also coarser than the rest of my hair but then it starts to soften and match the rest of my texture as it gets longer. Weird and annoying.

    I’ve been wearing my TWA out for the past two weeks and love it. I never thought short hair looked good on me but It looks good. I get so many compliments. however, it’s soooo cold out I have to wear head wraps or I start sniffling. I’ve been wearing wigs for years now and just want to enjoy my hair out. I want to protective style with braids or something but love my new look.

    I'm always touching my hair. Braiding it, unbraiding it, spritzing water, braiding it again. It's a miracle I have hair. I'm just stressed about wanting to move away from bunning and want to find a safe way to stretch my hair. If I don't stop touching it, I won't have any hair to stretch. :cry2:

    Finally washing my hair and giving it the star treatment. I washed with Chi black seed poo (I added blue food coloring for a diy toner poo). Then I detangled and added Masquintense dc. I'm under the dryer now. I'll blow dry in about 20 minutes.

    Wash day was about 35 minutes yesterday. 40 if you count the 5 mins I spent diffusing. The longest is maybe an hour and a half when I DC. Short wash days are the only way I'm going to stick to growing my hair out.

    Fluffy/spring twists are the best protective style ever. Low tension and versatile.

    My baby hairs tickled my eyelashes today. Couldn't figure out what on earth it was, then I was just confused. No idea why they're suddenly long, but I wish the rest of my hair would follow suit.

    I was gonna do spring twists but it turned into something else. They look like curly fries. :lachen:

    It really does take a long time to figure out hair type. I've been natural for 8 years and I still have no idea. Heat damage definitely doesn't help. It does make me sad when I watch YouTube videos and see the full heads of textured hair. You can tell what their curls are like, even have a guess at the pattern. Mines just all over the place, no shape, weird blob thing. I wonder how many more years until it starts to look like something. :\

    As a side note, 'type' itself doesn't matter, I think I'd like to just know what my hair is 'like' if that even makes sense. And for it to form a shape more than anything. I still have a weird mullet thing going on somehow.

    Occasionally I'll get an older man asking me how long it takes to do my hair. The funniest part is the ones who ask how long it takes always assume that it takes hours. In my mind I be like, "you know you be watching those wash day videos in your spare time, Mr. Hubbert. Where else would you get the idea it takes hours from?" :lachen::lachen:
