    I LOVE DRYBAR
    :2inlove::2inlove::2inlove:


    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

    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. :rolleyes: Gotta stay patient.

    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? :lol: I used to love it.

    A patient last night asked me for tips on how to grow long hair. I was looking around like who:look: 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.

    Nice!
    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.
