    My hair is DRY. I noticed a ton of split ends and ssks in the front section. So frustrated.

    Thank you for the feedback. I guess I will pass because I loathe braids that are difficult to take out.

    That's an interesting take. I never thought about having them installed that way. My braider installs them like micros. Sorta. I had decided against them but might check out a YouTube video with a "crochet" type install. Thank you.

    Why can’t a compliment just be a compliment???? Two recent interactions and unfortunately they are not isolated incidents.


    Stranger: You hair is so beautiful.
    Me: Thank you!
    Stranger: It is so fancy looking.
    Me: A smile and another thank you.
    Stranger: Is that a piece, like a weave.
    Me: No ma’am ...all my hair.
    Stranger: Oh...because last time I was speaking to someone with “black hair” it was a weave.
    Me: NOPE all my hair ...have a nice evening.



    Work Associate: I love you hair
    Me: Thank you!
    Work Associate: I would love to wear my hair like that, but aren’t you afraid it will fall off?
    Me: Fall off? No.....it may fall to the side but it definitely will not fall off.
    Work Associate: Oh ....(with a confused look) that’s your hair???
    Me: Yes ma’am.
    Work Associate: All of it
    Me: Yes ma’am


    This is why I have not worn my hair straightened to work in over 4 years. I usually straighten once maybe twice a year and I will wear it out on the weekend and wrap my hair and wear a scarf to work everyday until my next wash day.

    I had a work associate tell me my washngo was a twist out and that I was lying. I was highly offended and SHE was natural. @Beachy

    As sad as it is I don't tell people my background because then I get, oh That's why your hair is like that. My new job I work with 96% men and do not get those comments anymore. I may get every now and again, what hairstyle is that and that's about it

    I like to give people compliments and I don’t feel the need to ask a question with a compliment. If something is pleasing to the eye why not just say something nice to someone, you never know it could just make their day.

    And truth be told what if my bun was a hair piece or your wash n go was a twist out does it REALLY mater??

    A workplace with 96% men definitely lessens the hair issues, consider yourself lucky.

    Just now realized I’ve been using CeraVe lotion as a leave in. I put a little in an empty sample container of ORS edge control, but I also have another serum/cream mix in an identical empty sample container so I’ve been using lotion for about 3 days.


    What’s funny is that the lotion actually does a very decent job at moisturizing. I kept wondering why my moisturizer didn’t have its usual slip. Lol.

    You'd be surprised. Most of any hair comments or questions I get at work are from the men.

    Does anyone else struggle with SSK while wearing small/mini twists? I typically only wear them for 3-5 weeks.

    @AlmostTamed When I have small/mini twists,every couple of days I untwist the very ends/remoisturized and twist my hair back add a nice heavy oil or pomade on the ends to seal..

    Happy Hair Growing!

    I don’t know what I was doing when I placed my second Obia order. Apparently I didn’t log into my account so I don’t know what email address I used, I have no order number or tracking info. But I do have a charge on my credit card. I took a screenshot of the items but not the actual order number. I really don’t know what I was doing with my life.

    My hair is super nice right now. It's super long, full, and black, and cottony. Finger detangling session over. *puts bed scarf back on* I won't see my hair again until next week.

    Oh today I almost bought one of those brush blow dryers. I only got a taste of blow dried hair when I did it two months ago, but it puffed back up the same day. It was fun seeing my hair sorta hang down covering my back. I also want to surprise my Grandmother on Christmas. She's always saying "Im going to find my hot comb and get at that head." I get amused, but she's serious. Happy 90th to my Grandmother.

    Off Topic: Coffee mixed with Eggnog is so good y'all! It's a perfect marriage.

    On topic: once I've passed my third year being natural it seems as if I don't need to DC like I used to. I can get by with just doing once a month or longer. I also don't need to wash my hair that often. Or maybe I'm just lazy. Also I'm almost 4 years natural and I had no setbacks this whole time. I almost had one when I used way to much protein, but nope. No real set backs in years. Laziness pays off when you have type 4 hair. My hair and I get along because it's lazy too. It likes to lay there on my head unbothered.
    I'd say we have a good relationship.

    My package was delivered today. :D SSI was delivered yesterday. Still waiting for KindredButters and Bekura. Nothing has been unpacked. Don’t even know where I’m putting all of it.
