Thank you !!
Last night I moisturized my ends with Garnier sleek cream and de-tangled with my K comb (Kerastase). I just trimmed 2 days ago, so my hair is much easier to comb through.
My hair has been in this same 2 twists since my last wash day. Tonight for work, I remoisturized, added a little gel and pinned them up. Tomorrow night I'll do a full wash day and return to the same 2 twists until I figure out what I wanna do with my hair.

I want to get some feed-in cornrows this weekend, so I’m going to do a rollerset to stretch my hair without direct heat. I typically blow dry but I’m going to make a conscious effort to avoid direct heat for the whole upcoming year.
This worked out really well. My hair is completely stretched out and pretty much looks blow dried. I put some shea butter on it to make sure it retains moisture in these braids. Hopefully it’s not too greasy for the braider.
Putting castor oil on my hair and scalp along with my DC has been a great move. I honestly feel that my hair has thickened up these past three washes. I also oil my scalp about every other night with castor oil. Why did I ever abandon castor oil? I used to love it.
Thank you so much. Sorry for the late response!
No such thing as late. I hope you had a wonderful born day.
Thanks girl! A nice alert
A patient last night asked me for tips on how to grow long hair. I was looking around like who me? I don't consider my hair long but I guess anything over shoulder length is considered long. IDK
My hair this morning after night shift. I think I may be approaching bsl?
This is probably my first post in the hair forum this year. That’s shameful.
I got a blow out and a trim today and all I have is this horrible picture. My hair is still long but I’m going to refocus on hair care in 2019. I’m getting married in 2020 and want my hair to be luscious.
Is that purple color I see? Or just bad camera shot?
i saw it too but i think what I'm seeing that looks purple is actually her smock. It just looks purple because the color and picture isn't clear. At least that's how i interpreted the color I saw.
It’s definitely not my hair! I don’t know if it’s some weird reflection or lighting, but I’ve never colored my hair.
Although now that I’m looking at it... maybe I should try color one day!
You should. It would look great with a deep violet color. What I see is the section at the bottom where the smock is peeking through your hair on the right side going down your back(do you see what I'm talking about?). It looks like a purple streak. I don't know if that's what she's seeing too but I saw it too until I looked closer because I was wondering what it was.
I plan on dying my hair a deep violet when I get sick of my hair because I refuse to lift (causes too much damage and i love the richness of dark hair). I was thinking Joico Intensity Semi-Permanent Hair Color, Amethyst Purple.
Beautiful hair!!!! My hair wants to be like this when it grows up
I need to learn to cornrow. I don’t trust anyone else with my hair. I plan on wearing wigs until some time in 2019.
One day I will achieve a slayed roller set wrap. One day.
Edit: in response to the above posts, I've heard a lot of horror stories about how any chemical color can cause breakage. Not only the ones where you lift your hair.

Thank you @shawnyblazes
I think I'm going to just continue drying my hair via bunning under a softhood from now on. I clearly don't have the patience (or coins) for anything else and using my chipped blowdryer as frequently as I would need to is a recipe for disaster.
Besides, my hair feels good, which probably has to do more with products than anything else, but it's stretched and soft so I'm banking on it. Now I should probably go through the older wet bunning threads for ideas. I already know I need to start shifting my bun around, which is something I'm terrible at. I'll probably just move my bun around when drying and stick to my low bun during the week.
Also need to plan out my next protective style for December.

I’m always learning with my hair. I currently have an arm injury that limits my movement. Happily, my hair comes out BETTER when I don’t section my hair for styling!!!! I love it.
Just got a professional blow out and trim.
These ends had been mistreated. Love my hair though! How can a person have tons of hair but fine strands? This was the culprit of my knotty ends
