    My hair has gone downhill since applying the demi permanent color. It has been three weeks since the color and only a couple of minutes ago, I realized my porosity is off:pullhair:. I ordered roux porosity treatment conditioner. Hopefully this would work in restoring the pH in my hair.

    I definitely need it for my salon trip in May with a new stylist (yes, I'm jumping back in the stylist trims) I need to restore this hair back to its glory days.

    I just said that this evening! I wore plaits instead of twists during the week and it keeps my hair less tangles for sure. I'm not sure on the moisture just yet. It makes me look like I have less hair and the ends are yuky (trim in May) but I think I do like them better although I prefer twist outs.

    I hope your hair recovers. I suffered damage from a demi permanent dye about 2 years ago. I had to cut 4 inches off.

    I used a clarifying shampoo yesterday to remove hard water buildup. And got some Shea Moisture Deep Treatment Masque.

    I forgot how much my hair loved it, and how much my skin hated it. Before going to bed last night I looked in the mirror had two large nodules on my face :mad:

    I washed my face, wiped with hydrogen peroxide, and applied calamine lotion. Luckily, the redness went away and the swelling went down. I forgot how badly my skin reacted to this DC.

    Ok I think I'm going to be straightening my hair next weekend so I can do a proper trim. I won't have much time, so if I can figure out how to get it done Friday after work then that would be great.

    I really want a deva cut, but it doesn’t seems like the deva places around me specialize in black hair. I’m nervous about going to a white place...

    This lace frontal is so itchy. My wig is arriving today. I can't wait to get it, wash it and try it on, so I can take this weave down.

    So I’m looking online for curly haircuts I like so I can show my stylist (once I find one). Why are so many of the pictures ads for extensions??

    I used the ponytail method to try and determine my hair density. It measured 4 inches in circumference, but I don’t feel like I have dense hair. It doesn’t look full when I wear it curly.

    Do you need to do this method on straight or curly or blown out hair? I'd love to figure out mine

    Oh no, what brand did you use?
    I just ordered a Paul Mitchell demi to color my hair with soon. It should be the same one a previous stylist used to use on me a while ago.

    I did it while my hair was curly, but I pulled the ponytail as tight as I could.

    I've been meaning to put a demi to darken my hair since my natural color is wack but now you're scaring me!
    I was going to a hair school for a basic color....

    I spent almost two hours watching this black man on YouTube take care of his beard with pride. He deep conditioned and moisturized it. I took mental notes as if I was new to hair care. He was just so adamant about deep conditioning. This man is serious about his kinky textured beard. I hope when I get a husband he's into his beard growth like I am my hair. We can have coffee while discussing retention and oils and such.

    I want to wear a Marley hair ponytail so bad, but I'm afraid that someone will reach out and touch it and say "this .... feels like brillo."

    Why can't they make soft kinky hair that's not human hair?

    This is what I currently have in my hair and usually use for crochet hair. You can hot roller it or braid it and dip. It softens the hair even more. Later on I'll post a picture. This is a black owned online beauty supply https://shoppurebeautysupply.com/collections/iamnubian/products/nubian-ocean-wave

    Also, marley hair softens when its dipped in hot water after you add a leave in to it. I sometimes use marley hair for my crochet braids as well

    Thank you so much for the tips! I have a bunch of the Cuban twist hair already in the closet. It's matches my hair to the letter, but it doesn't match with my hair's softness. I will try a leave in like you said.

    It was the One and Only from Sally's. The worst part is the color has already started fading.

    I can't fit any of my nice clothes. I've been limited to whatever fits. My boobs are huge and I don't like it. Spring time is around the corner and I'm a messy fat-ass. I have beautiful blouses that I use to wear to work. And now......I don't.

    On another note......I fried up some OUTSTANDING flounder, baked macaroni & cheese, corn bread and Coleslaw y'all! I danced and hummed and tune while eating. Damm these hands that know how to season food!! Dam it!
