    I tried Biosilk Silk Therapy when I washed this past Sunday. My hair feels so smooth and soft. I used it as a sealant on top of TGINs Green Tea leave-in

    The breakage on my crown is a lot worse than expected. It appears to a line of demarcation breakage which is weird since I'm completely natural for years. The new growth appears to be thicker and coarser than the rest of the hair at the crown. Despite all that, the crown still has light spots (at this point, I believe this is due to genetics and age).
    Today I added a little tea tree oil to my shampoo since the crown was feeling extra tender to help with the inflammation and opted to do a hard core protein treatment since I haven't done one in months. Hopefully this will reduce the amount of breakage at the crown.

    My hair is growing like a weed. Winter growth spurts are the bomb. I measured one inch until my next milestone from a strand in the front, though last time I checked it seemed like I had needed at least two! I'll measure again at the end up the month to be sure.

    I wonder if there's a way to use products high in glycerin and maintain definition or stretched hair. I want to experiment with rubbing a little s curl in between my hands and then applying it instead of directly spraying my hair. Maybe that will give me enough moisture without the major shrinkage.

    I usually wear my hair in a bun to the gym, but I’ll be starting a class soon with a lot of floor work - buns can get a little uncomfortable on the neck. I’m gonna buy some black satin scarves and wear my twists loose and covered underneath. Hopefully, it’s inconspicuous, but really I’m gonna do what I’m gonna do.

    I don't think I'll ever use indigo again. It made my scalp itch something fierce. I ordered the organic brand from henna sooq so I know it was legit. My daggone scalp is still sore even after I shampooed.

    My scalp was so sore from that indigo treatment I did the other night but that tea tree oil worked wonders. I mixed it with EVOO and had my mom apply it to my scalp. Now it's feeling back to normal

    If they ever stop making s curl activator spray, I'm going to be hurt. NOTHING moisturizes my hair like the juice. I just can't justify paying $11 and up for popular brands that have glycerin in them when I can get 2 weeks of moisture from the juice and some Shea butter. I'm addicted y'all

    If you ever get a chance , try SM curling soufflé. Best darn mimic of curl activator juice that I have came across.

    The same thing happens to me when i use indigo straight. I heard it's because it's astringent. I thought I was allergic because it made not only my scalp burn but neck as well(where the indigo had gotten). I've since stopped using henna/indigo but when I did I found using them in a half/half mix worked better than straight up.

    I though I was the only one that got jacked up when I used indigo. I actually think I'm allergic to it. My head started throbbing, eyes watering, I got so dizzy I stumbled to the sink to wash it out. Never again.

    My scalp is still sore! It's painful to the touch. I know that I washed it out good. I hope my hair doesn't fall out.
