    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.

    Been going back and forth about buying the Melanin hair care line from Naptural85 for weeks now. Then today, my manager is talking about how her hair turned out nice (which it did) and she let me touch her hair. Her hair was so soft and her dry twist out was so defined. She told a co-worker and I that she used the twist elongating cream and the oil. She sold me and didn't even realized it...gotta get the products now.

    I was watching a family show on Netflix last night and the daughter in the show said something to her mother that made me pause. The mother then realized how the daughter felt and left the room. The daughters daughter came in the door, and the daughter said to her daughter, If I ever made you feel that you weren't enough, I'm sorry.

    The mother comes back in the room and said, she has always felt that she (her daughter) is beyond perfect and it goes without saying. The daughter then replies, it doesn't go without saying, you have to say it, mami.

    I busted out sobbing in tears. Like real hard tears. I guess deep down inside it really has been bothering me.

    The characters in the show are similar to my family. Immigrants. Raising kids . Old school church parents. etc.

    I did a search & Detroy today. I moisturized with my beloved curl activator and Blue Magic grease. I then platted my hair (14 plats). My braids are BSL. Im 1 inch away from hip length. My ends curl up nicely. "Come on hair keep growing"

    I was chatting with my Dad last night. I said "Im almost butt length!" I'm then said "Im partly growing really long hair for my future husband, cuz he loves long natural hair". My Dad was like "YEAH!! HE'S GONNA LOVE ALL THAT HAIR! ITS NICE, THICK AND IT'S YOURS." I then nodded my head slowing in agreeance like "you damn right." LOL!

    My latest revelation is that my hair thrives better in plaits versus cornrows. With plaits, I can easily get to the entire hair strands and more scalp surface.

    For length, you can do the pull test; it works just fine. Taking pictures every few months can help you see if your density is changing.

    I can’t wait to get my revair. Super excited about a great way to stretch without losing a lot of hair.

    EAP heat flat irons are the truth. Me and my one inch tackled my niece's hair this weekend. She is relaxed, growing out a sorta stacked bob, very coarsely textured, but when I tell this child has 5k strands per cubic inch I'm not lying. I have never seen anyone with that much hair in my life lol.

    I completely agree, best flat iron I've ever owned! I haven't touched my Chi ever since I got mine, I only keep it in the event that something happens to my EAP and I need to straighten before a new one can arrive. You're good though cause I don't share mine, everyone else gets the Chi!:lachen:
