    I think I need to get a corrective trim/cut, my hair is looking thin towards the ends. I love my length but more than anything I want my hair to be healthy.

    This damage is from a lace front. I always had fine/low density edges, but this is the worst my hair has ever been. I don’t know how women use these and keep their edges.

    Oh no @keranikki !! :bighug:
    You have us to help support you babying your hair back to health. As a fellow fine-haired low density edged lady, I understand how devaststing this can be for us as it can be harder to conceal than it may be for those with more density.

    How do you think that happened? Sorry, I’m not very familiar with lace wigs.

    Thank you!
    It is from using adhesive to stick the lace to the front edge of your hairline. I had trouble removing the wig and the cap. I tried to use oil, but it wasn’t budging. When I sprayed some water on it, with the oil, it loosened up. Unfortunately, the damage was done.

    I had this weave for a month and a half and Im so over it.

    I’ve been wearing fake hair 24/7 with no break. I’m ready for wigs.

    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.
