    I was missing Ethylhexyl Stearate,
    Diazolidinyll Urea, Trideceth-6, and
    Iodopropynyl Butylcarbamate. I found some things that could possibly replace them due to unavailability for the average consumer and/or health concerns. I posted some stuff in the Remember Surge 14 Thread.

    Lol! That's a cute story. It's so nice to help people who are natural and having trouble.

    I creep on people in the hair aisle. While I'm looking at products if someone with natural hair swings by I watch and see what they pick up, whether their hair looks nice or not, just being straight up nosey lol.

    This year I’m going to enjoy my hair. Since I started my transition 4.5 years ago I almost always wear my hair up. This year I’m wearing my hair out consequences be damned. What’s the point of growing all this hair if I’m not going to let it out?

    *kicks door open*

    Who the HECK bought out all of the Garnier Fructis Legendary Olive in my area? Can't find it in Shoppers, Giant, Weis, Target... what on earth!! I thought we were all supposed to be friends. :(

    (No I haven't tried Wal Mart yet, it gives me anxiety but that's the last place I have left to check).

    I like my hair best when it’s a mix of frizz and curls. I don’t know why but I feel like this is when my hair looks it’s best. Wild, free and imperfect.

    Back in the day, my hair would shrink and get dry as the day went on. Now it'll be the biggest and softest at the end of the night. Hair is so interesting :drunk:

    Same!! I passed wal-Mart on purpose on my quest for yarn. went all the way (2.5 miles) to an arts & crafts store to get black yarn (to do yarn locs).

    Those lines are crazy in Wal-Mart check outs! The other day i had to go in there and at the check out I saw a man cursing out his wife like a mad man. Her confidence was shot! I just had to have that $8.99 peacan pie with my greedy self.

    Last week while at work (In corporate America):

    That morning I was feeling a little motivated while styling my hair that morning. So I thought it would be nice to do a high bun (my buns are extremely large), and I also wanted a bang. So I did that and went on to work. *whisles*

    Later on that afternoon I'm sitting at the desk and this man (the office jokester?) strolls past my cubicle and looks at me and says "I dont know about that hair do Missy, Im not liking it too much!"

    I smiled at him while looking deeply into his eyes (for 3 seconds, which is a lot). I then looked down (still smiling) and looked back up at him and said "Its too bad that I don't care WHAT YOU THINK ABOUT MY HAIR". He completely hesitated! He actually looked disappointed. I was extra dramatic/creepy the way I responded. :lachen:. What....you thought I'd be hurt? Make me laugh again.

    When do men think it's appropriate to give their unsolicited opinions to women? That ish irritates me. Imagine if we walked around telling them about how their blazer shoulders aren't properly fitted, their shoes don't match, their tie is tied wrong etc... they'd go home crying.

    Right! They'd go home crying or report us or accuse us of trying to get close to them.

    Now when it comes to husbands, they can chime in and make suggestions because they have that tight I believe.

    Let me tell y'all (I'm talkative tonight) of when I had a very minor set Back when I had relaxed hair.

    I had very thick, healthy MBL hair. While walking on campus to my next class. I goes to light up a cigarette LOL! The wind blew my hair right on to the lit cigarette and I lost about 20 strands in the front. I can laugh now because that was years ago.

    The end.

    This has been A Random Thought.

    I think,East African Whipped Shea Butter does a better job at keeping my strands nice,smooth & soft/last for 3 days..

    Happy Hair Growing!

    My family never misses an opportunity to tell me how nappy my hair is. I've accepted that they'll never see the beauty in my 4b hair so it doesn't bother me at all. I feel like a pioneer showcasing the beauty of an under represented hair type. I love this cottony cloud growing out of my head.

    Isn't this something....I was going to make a similar post. I know exactly how you feel. I'm also 4b and can completely relate when it comes to family members. My Grandmother told me "you walkikng around with that hair looking like a slave." *shrugs* what else can I do but to keep on walking? I love your hair btw.

    My scalp is so itchy these days. Especially my crown. From past experience, that means it's growing.

    Getting ready to seal my hair with Blu Magic grease. SSK and tangles don't have a chance against it. It's been my staple for 1.5 years and I love it so. I helps me retain so much length.

    I had a dream that someone was cornrowing my hair ever so nicely w/o ripping, pulling or breaking it. While I was sitting between this lady's legs on the floor I felt no worry that I would lose hair. I was so peaceful and relieved. (Childhood flash back dream?)

    I then woke up sad. There is no one like that around that is trust worthy......anymore.

    Maybe I should ask my Aunt to cornrow my hair, but I'm scared to.

    I'm about five inches from nipple length, which was my goal back in 2014 before I messed up and went and got a pixie cut. If I only trim an inch all year, technically I can make it assuming I get 6 inches a year. I have to behave and not beat up my hair this year.

    I haven’t been able to find it ANYWHERE around me. So I ordered a bunch from Target.com. It’s so crazy how some products are totally still sold but may not be found ANYWHERE in certain areas.

    You mean to tell me no one on your team has told you that you have the word separate spelled wrong on your website?

    No one ????
