    My hair is at the length now where I no longer need to baggy my braids individually. I can now split my braids into two ponytails and baggy each side. I can’t wait for the day I can get all my braids into one ponytail so that I only have to use one baggy.

    Finished detangling and installing mini twists with only my hair after one month of neglect. Feeling extremely relieved and pleased. Haven't seen the length of my mini twists in half a year.

    I think I *might* be waist length! It hits me about there in the shower when washing my hair. I don’t plan on straightening until the end of December so we’ll find out then.

    With the exception of a few things, I’m giving all of my store brought products to my mom and sister. I already took them one box. They’re going to get another.

    Speaking of challenges, there was a CurlyProverbs challenge, I'd be more interested in an Indian Oil/Massage challenge. I hate doing herbal mixes because they're so freaking messy, but oils are so much easier. I've never hosted a challenge before. Hmm.

    Does anyone else jump straight into deep conditioning from washing their hair? I’m trying to be as lazy efficient as possible.

    That's the only way I do my hair. What's the other way? I feel like I'm missing something lol.

    Rinse out conditioner. Or a tea rinse. Or treatment. Etc. folks add all kind of steps before deep conditioning.

    Oh right right. Wasn't thinking.

    98% of the time I go from wash to dc'ing to style. I'll cheat and mix my protein treatment with a moisture DC when I do those.

    I really want tree /invisible braids but they look like they a challenge to maintain. Has any of you ever had them? If so, advice?

    Hard to take out. I had them years ago. Maintaining wasn’t a problem.

    Anyone else ever get scared to take down their hair after a week of mild neglect? I feel like she is about to curse me out, which I deserve to be honest lol.

    I really wish I got into weaves when I was relaxed, such a missed opportunity lol now I crave a good straight hair sew-in with some bomb leave out but I don't want to risk the damage.

    I had tree braids a couple of times. If I remember correctly maintaining was fine. On take down I think I cut all the hair out since my real hair was just in cornrows going back and then took out those out and was done.

    LHCF is a very special place.

    I had a few interactions recently IRL where people wanted to talk about “hair care” but I realized that few people actually want to talk about it from a science based perspective. Peoples’ eyes glaze over before I even get to mention interesting findings in published research, sources like green beauty and natural haven bloom or the anectdotal things that you ladies have found.

    Even though I am benefiting from my knowledge it’s hard seeing people struggling with their hair but not being able to share what I know or my experiences IRL.

    I’m doing the rice water challenge too! But I’m failing, I only used rice water twice. I’ve been traveling then my hair felt “off” so I needed a couple weeks of a protein free moisture routine to balance it.

    @Sarabellam Hi! I notice with the rice water,if your protein sensitive to only spray it on the roots have your moisture Dc on the length and rinse out..Then use a moisture leave in conditioner..

    Happy Hair Growing!
