Humidity and glycerin maybe?
I never even made it out of the house. I think it’s my poor technique. I’m going to practice some more. Some parts are straight and silky. I think I’ll use a setting foam for my next experiment.
Anybody have details on a knock off puff cuff thats more affordable? I'm not spending 20 bucks on a round banana clip. LOL.
I decided to revisit washing in sections today and now I understand why so many people do it. It sucks on short hair but at my current length, washing is six flat twist made doing my hair so easy. I just need to keep an eye on my scalp, it'd be too easy to miss a spot and get build up.
*sees a split end*
Guess it's time for a big chop.
.... Things I am NOT doing in 2019.

I love how supportive this forum is regardless of whether a person is natural, relaxed or texlaxed. You can't find another online hair environment like it.
I want to try yarn locs. I need to do something to keep my hair separated.
Hot oil treatments definitely deliver. It seems my hair has regained some elasticity.
Which oil do you use? I don't remember ever doing a H.O.T before.
My mom used to have us do them when we were little, it's pretty old school so I don't see people doing them as much lately. I use coconut oil, I find it works better as a HOT than trying to use it as a leave in. Back then we would just use olive oil.
When she said “these mfkers set me back”
And it’s just a great community over all!
Thinking about cutting my hair to even it up. The length difference between my crown and the sides of my hair is starting to get annoying. It’s only noticeable to me but still...
I sometimes feel the same way. But, although I love the look of blunt hair, I am not willing to sacrifice the time it will take to reach my length goals just to have it.
I do enjoy living vicariously through youtubers with blunt hair though.....
It's true LOL.... those dag on ends curling up and knotting. For crying out loud.
I like a blunt hemline but that's a little too blunt for me.
I stay living vicariously through naturals who keep their hair straight more than 50% of the time!! I'd love to live that life, but I love wash n'gos too much to be risking heat damage . Once I hit WL though, it might by on and poppin!
I can relate to this too. I used to say when I got to Waist length I would do this and that... now I am close to being Waist length and I’m like “maybe when I get to tailbone”.... It just never feels like you have enough hair once you start growing it.
That's so real!! APL used to be good enough. But now?!! Imma need my hair to touch my butt and then I'll be good
Still hunting down the last two or three ingredients for the original Surge 14. I just woke up from my nap so let’s get it on lol
Oh my gosh, I can definitely relate. I keep putting off "styling/stretching" my hair until i reached mbl, then i said WL, now that I'm close to HL I STILL don't play with my hair. Maybe when I get to knee length I'll experiment haha! *puts bonnet on*
I had the perfect waves when I took out my pigtails, but apparently if you part your hair straight back down the middle, that's a permanent commitment and it's there forever.
Son of a biscuit. *pouts*
lol I've been parting in quarters on wash day for so long that I'm pretty sure my middle part is permanent, from my forehead to my nape. It doesn't help that I also style along that part because it's easier to work with it than against it. My grandmother hates middle parts and I wasn't allowed to wear one growing up but it actually looks good on me so idc.
@Artemis24 Dang, what grandma have against middle parts lol
Funny story (I don't think I've told this yet):
While I was in the beauty supply store some months back. I went down a isle and saw a woman with a "failed" narural style (she was adorable). She turns toward me and to my surprise she says "Oh my gosh YOUR HAIR! its like GOLD". Then she proceeded to tell me about hair, that it's dry and don't act right. I told her what product I use (curl activator). I said "feel my hair, how moist it is, this is why my hair is long lol". I took my style down right there in the middle of the isle so she could see and feel for herself. I was shocked when she dug her fingers in my scalp and roots I'm thinking shes just going to feel how soft my hair is, but no honey she had to check FIRST if it was actually all my hair. After her examination she was impressed.
By time we were done talking she snatched that bottle of Care Free Curl Gold Activator so fast! I said "Thats the STUFF." She left happy. I hope she likes it as much as I do. Curl Activator is the troof.
*sigh* I always wanted to work at a BBS.
Oooh ok this would be a great thread. "Things we're NOT doing in 2019"
I'm am not trusting bobby pins this year. They don't sit right in my hair anymore and I'm too tender headed these days.
She hated the way they looked lol. When I was in high school, I had my hair straightened and let the stylist part it however. I got home and as soon as she looked at me she made me change the part. I'm grown now and do whatever I want. She doesn't say anything because she knows I won't listen but I wonder if she still hates it.
