Thank you! Happy birthday to your little one!
Finally got it together to do an onion juice treatment. Shouldn’t have used such a large onion though. I have enough juice to last 8-10 treatments and I don’t know how long it’s going to last in the freezer.

@shawnyblazes Happy Birthday to little Josiah!
Thank you! He had a great day!!!
I straightened my hair today and now I remember why I kept cutting it short. It's so thick. It's too thick. i just can't. UGH!
No more heat for 2019 so I can get to a new length goal cuz if I try to mess with this thing on my head again it's getting buzzed.
I cut my hair off about a month ago and I'm already prepared to grow it back lol. I think I might stay relaxed though. You'll probably see a protective style from me soon.
I wrapped my hair last night . Of course one side poofed all up SMH!!! I pulled it into a low ponytail and it's still cute. So far I'm enjoying my straight hair a lot
I kind of miss the days where I exclusively did wash & gos and also didn't care much about product ingredients (save for things I knew my scalp didn't like).
Looking forward to taking down these crochet braids next week. Just one more week to go.
This black man sounds stupid. He’s calling natural hair , organic and weaves, gmo.
Sad. He’s kee keeing it up with two black women with relaxed hair.
All three are law enforcement.
I'm almost a week into this straight hair, and I'm definitely loving it. Unlike before, I am completely unfazed by how frizzy it is! I actually love the wild waves .
I've been toying with the idea of getting 2-3 weeks out of this hair, and then straightening again
I'm new to wigs, but I don't know where to start. What's the best way to get in so I don't look like a hotmess with my wig? I want to get a lacefront.
I like this length:
Her application looks complicated to me as a newbie, but I love how her hairline looks in the end - it looks quite realistic and nice:
But do I have to apply the wig on daily? How long does it take?
I had plans to start washing my hair once a week instead of once a month, but now I'm tired of my hair. I want a protective style that I can keep in for 4-6 weeks that'll give me access to my scalp and won't make my skin itch. Wigs make me itch, I'm too tender headed for braids, and crochet braids make my scalp sore. Maybe I'll give bunning a go.
I duuno if this will be feasible for you but I used mini braids to grow out my hair. Because of my hair texture it was the only way I could do daily WNGs without all of the ssks. I started back in 2010 when I had only 3” of hair and I still rock them now.
Once you spend all of the time putting them in, you can just refresh them one by one at your own pace and keep them in for months at a time. I wash, cowash, DC and everything else in them like they are loose hair. You can also style and bun them like loose hair.
Here are some pix of mine on natural and texlaxed hair. But if you google mini braids, you’ll see a lot of pretty images.

Do you feel the split ender is a good investment?
My answered is mixed. I like the split ender because I don't have to take off 1 inch to get rid of 1/4 inch. It is also easy to use.
My only concern is what to do when a replacement blade is needed. I'm not sure if the company makes replacement blades. However, eve if you use it once a month it will probably get old before the blades get dull. I sliced my finger on it last year and my unit is 3 years old.
Knowing what I know I would buy it again. Just wanted you to understand some of the issues.
I LOVE reliable vendors.
I ordered products from Kindred Butters right at the New Year. They were supposed to come in ~ 3 weeks (I placed a decent-sized order). About 1.5 weeks in she messaged me to let me know that Etsy was making it difficult for her to print a shipping label, but the package was on it's way and she was "throwing in a shea butter." I was pretty unbothered since I wasn't really supposed to have my items yet anyhow. A few days later my package arrived. She didn't just throw in a tiny little sample. She gave me a free 12 (?) 0z tub of fabulously whipped shea butter....and she didn't even need to do that because the items weren't even late to begin with! Love it!
I used to rock those all he time before I went and chopped the back of my hair off. I'll have to let the back grow out a bit more before I can revisit my beloved mini braids. Yours are gorgeous!
I need a really good light yet emollient moisturizer to use as a moisturizer/leave in before I apply my stylist product. When I was natural before Camille Rose's fresh curl was perfect but she changed the formula. It was light yet incredibly moisturizing and emollient. It just melted into my strands instead of being a thick greasy cream that just sits on the surface.
Man, the Winter makes me so neglectful with my hair.
Happy Birthday to all the ladies I missed while on my hiatus!
My bun has been looking thicker lately. I think it’s the nioxin vitamins.
I resurrected this hair from the dead y'all!!!!! My hair was so busted yesterday! It's amazing what some flattwists and rollers can do for your life!!
Well, i made it 6 days with straight hair. I was enjoying it a lot, but missed my hair and missed pampering it. I'm trying out a treatment with aloe vera juice, amla and fenugreek, then I'm going to shampoo, do a quick mega-tek treatment and try a different method of stretching my hair.
I can't deal with my natural texture. I've went back to keratin and will probably use Hair Botox from here on out. My hair is so easy to manage now
I know how you feel. I'm thinking of looking into this although I'd rather have looser vs completely straight hair. Which brand do you use?
