    I hate apartment hunting. Hate it, hate it, hate it. It’s so tricky in my city. It’s either a great neighborhood or really cheap. In other news, it took me two days to twist my hair. My arms got tired lol. Once my hair gets longer I won’t have to do so many twists :clapping:

    I have a formal event coming up and I don’t know what to do with my hair. I don’t want to straighten it. Maybe a curly updo?

    Am I the one only person who thought having a looser hair texture and a faster growth rate went hand in hand? Boy was I wrong. My own hair has corrected the error of my thinking. The nape area is 3c and it only grows 1/4 inch a month. The cery top of my hair is 4a and that hair grows almost 1/2 inch a month. The rest of my hair is 4b and grows about the same as the 4a hair. I'm really starting to regret that undercut now. Eight months later and only 2 inches of hair in the back smh

    Same. My hair is on the kinkier side and surprisingly, I think I get about 1/2 a month.

    I had a dream I was trying to bleach my hair, then dye it on top of it, and it was BURNING. Plus I couldn’t find my neutralizing Shampoo.

    What the freak subconscious?

    I’ve enjoyed washing and going but I kind of want to get my hair braided up for awhile. It’s going to have to wait because I don’t have time for all of that right now. Boo.

    Yeah, I’m going to get me some gerber banana purée and use up this raw honey I have taking up space in my fridge. Next wash day is going to be an experience.

    I did this this week as a pre poo and my hair came out BOMB!!!!! I used a banana and avocado with honey and my herb infused oil.... All I can say is YUMMM!!!! I mixed with some pure aloe vera gel and then strained with a handheld strainer. I was afraid to dc with it because it's perishable. So wanted to shampoo it out.

    It;s actually really easy to use a reg old banana if u want.

    :bouncy: :clap: :rocker:
    This is great! That prepoo sounds amazing. I bought 3 conditioners a few weeks ago, that just aren’t doing what their supposed to do. This gives me hope haha. You bring up a good point about it being perishable, so I’ll need to rinse well and avoid my scalp

    Where has the felicia leatherwood brush been all my natural hair life?!? I thought it would be grossly over hyped but I was wrong. It definitely lives up to the hype! It and the tgin honey miracle moisture mask are a match made in detangling heaven. The brush moved through my hair so easily and never snagged. detangling has never been so easy

    I feel like my hair is going through a growth spurt and I’m anxious to see where I’m at in December. I feel like my hair is going to finally flourish and I can’t wait to show out. Sticking to my staples. No longer trying new things and I found everything that works for me finally. :2inlove:

    I got my hair relaxed and cut in November. Around the same time I found out that I was iron deficient anemic.

    So, since then I’ve been taking high dose iron pills. And my hair has been growing like a weed. I have two inches of new growth that is thick, moisturized, and soft.

    And it has me thinking of growing my natural hair out again.

    I haven’t straightened my hair in 15 months. I have no idea if my hair is getting longer/thicker/thinner. I don’t know how to judge the state of my hair when it’s curly all the time.
