I think some time in December I'm going to get a relaxer and have my hair cut into a long bob at the Walmart salon. They have 4 black stylist and I always see black women in there getting their hair done. I want it to look something like this...
I turn 35 next year, and I find the farther I get into my 30s, the less interested I am in having super long hair.
This rosemary/coconut oil has my scalp itching like crazy. I put it on last night and I'll wash it out this afternoon.
So I went old school and bought Sulfur 8 this weekend at the grocery store.
Funny thing is Lucky grocery store is my go to place for Black hair care ever since I moved to San Jose. There's not a Beauty Supply store on every corner like there is in ATL, and last year I went to a billion stores to try to find a specific hair gel to lay down my edges for the holiday party. Ended up spending like $30 on crap from Sally's (after going to 3).
A few days later I was grocery shopping, and there for $3 was the gel I wanted.
At least once a year since moving here my scalp itches uncontrollably. I scratch myself raw trying to get relief to no avail. And I found that a quick wash with Head n Shoulders or Selsun Blue would do the trick, but it hasn't been working.
It got so bad that one night I had a dream about greasing my scalp... Like how my mama used to. Parting section by section and slathering it on. So I knew this was a sign from my Ancestors to go back to what I know.
And praise to the Spirit Guides because today I washed my hair, detangled, then greased my scalp with Sulfur 8.
IT WAS THE MOST GLORIOUS EXPERIENCE OF MY LIFE!
The refreshing cool tingle gave me instant relief.
I don't think I've greased my scalp with anything other than coconut oil and EVOO since I've joined LHCF. But this morning the chemical laden mineral oil gave me life!
The only bad part is I smell like Sulfur 8. And of all the days to run into a former manager of my team arms stretched for a hug.
Between this and my Sunday Riley skincare I pray for the nostrils of everyone around me.
Got my hair cut yesterday. I was trying to grow out a tapered cut but I realized as I was twisting it one night that I just don't have the patience to do my hair anymore. I think I'm keeping it short.
I meant take a picture of my hair but it’s all fuzzy now. And I’m not taking it down
I usually get a rollerset in small rollers i like my curly. Anyway my hairstylist was all out of small rollers she used the big purple and grey rollers. ..uugh. now i have to deal with my hair being super straight all week.
Split a nail across the nailbed and it keeps snagging my hair. Finally got the good gloves from work so I can wash my hair.
Posting here for any ladies who don't visit the makeup forums:
I used Qhemet Cocoa Tree Detangling Ghee as a makeup primer - Best Results Ever
Will post details if anyone's interested!
Thinking about going to the salon to get a wash and light press today. It's been 4 months since I last straightened my hair. I'm curious to see if I have retained any length.
I’m getting my hair done Friday for my birthday and even though they are gonna wash my hair
I’m wondering if I should at least cowash before I go sooo my hair isnt super coated and oily from my Shea butter mix when I get there
Awww thanks, love!! @shawnyblazes
It looks like there hasn't been much growth with my hair. Black shirt is from may. The grey shirt is from today.
Excuse my fat arm, in the midst of trying to get my life together lol
I want to shorten my nightly routine down to about ten-fifteen minutes, but if I try to retwist my hair in larger sections to save time, they unravel, so I'm going to start doing braids. The resulting curls look the same for me.Hopefully now I can be super lazy and fast. It was a light bulb moment.
I LOVE DRYBAR
I’ve been a handful of times now and I always love how my hair turns out
Super soft full of body and straight and smooth but not bone STRAIGHT straight
Best part it’s half the price and time of going to my old stylist
I’ve never seen a black stylist at the dry bar near me.
I’m in LA I’ve been to 3 different ones and the always have at least 1 black girl
Usually I get a black stylist.... whenever I make my appointment I put in the notes that I have thick African American hair (I don’t get into hairtyping lol mainly because I don’t know my hair type)
But yesterday I was assigned a yt girl
And honestly she was more gentle than any of the previous stylists I’ve had and my hair came out just as nice if not better
And I was nervous when she walked up to me because I was like oh dear I’m gonna have to go home and fix my hair after I get it done Lol
Looks like As I Am has a new line.
Literally 1:06 - 1:42 what I was feeling, hearing, thinking while my Grandmother wanted to use her hot comb in my hair tonight . "I choose youuuuu Naps".... with the snap fingers and shoulder bop. W/ the beat drop at 1:42.
Stop it !!!
I want to change my look but every style that I can come up with would look ugly. LOL. One more year and I'll have long enough hair to have some options again. It feels like an eternity since I've had a twa. Gotta stay patient.
her curls are lovely!!
