I bought a new shampoo and conditioner and I’m so excited to try them tomorrow. I have visions of happy hydrated hair. I can totally see how PJism starts.
All this time my hair simply needed a double shampoo to get some "ack right". Funny because my mom literally never skipped the second shampoo when I was a kid. Further proof I need to just get back to the basics
Goodness gracious, I just want a shampoo, D/C, and a good trim. I don’t want a silk press. I don’t want a protective style. These women in Chicago want an arm, a leg, and a couple toes. Then I found one lady I was interested in, and it turns out she’s in fornicating Michigan. Why does she have a Chicago stylist hashtag. Forget it, I’ll do it myself
So I tried again tonight and now I'm thinking maybe I just didn't take my time the first time. Didn't get super waves but I can definitely see how this will work if I'm consistent like he is. I used my shampoo brush (Dollar Tree. It's like the Tangle Teezer) and two different Conair combs. I think later I want to replace the brush with the handled Tangle Teezer from Ulta.
ALL I want is to rock my washngo but my hair is nothing but tangles after awhile which hinders my retention.
If I could loosen it slightly so the strands dont wrap totally around each other and just refresh every 2-3 days , it might be golden.
Well, its a nice thought though.
I'm excited to be putting up my hair again, but I'm missing it in advance
Aha!! I know what I need to do now. Since my hair is so long I gonna have to do a light finger detangling every 2 to 3 days bottom line. That's the only way I can keep up with these ling coily strands. And I don't mind.
If I think of it like laundry, I'd rather wash one load every five days then wait two weeks and have to do 2 1/2 loads plus separate colors. It only took me 10 minutes to sit here while watching TV to go through each chunky twists and pull out the shed hairs. I have seven chunky twists. And I'll keep these same seven twists even when styling.
This just seems better than waiting for the weekend to sit down and prepare mentally for a full blown detangling session.
I think I want to do a dusting for the fun of it. Sometimes doing them can be satisfying.
Tomorrow after work I'm going to set my hair on perm rods for the fun of it. If it dries overnight and looks decent I'll do some sort of up style with curly bangs. I had this bottle of Bronner Brothers foam wrap stuff for the longest. And I have a all kinds of rollers, I have perm rods, tension rollers, the throwbacks with clamps, I threw away my flexi rods though. Anywho.
I'm laughing to myself because I just remembered that I have washable auburn hair color in a spray can. Wouldn't that be something to go from my kinky black hair to a perm rod set with auburn sprayed on it? The people at work would have a field day. .
I could do it since this weekend is wash day.
Lunch date (aka first meeting) is Thursday. I have to sleep before work on Wednesday and then I get off at 11pm. I think that I'll try to do a quick wash n'go puff Thursday morning, and wear my hair back without the curly bangs.
Sounds like a plan to me

Before it got REAL. see that one at the top? That's the one.
Oh my goodness it's clear that I don't know what I'm doing. A roller got stuck and tangled in my head so bad that I had to ask someone to take it out and it took them 10 minutes to get it out without ripping my hair. I almost had a set back. When I saw that roller SEVERELY tangled I did panic at first and said "Jesus you got this". Thank God I didn't have to cut the roller out. I can laugh now, but initially I was like . I thought I was going to have a set back post.
The person taking the roller out was panicking like "oh nooo, oh what did you do?!!" That did NOT help.
I need to stop fiddling over what I don’t have and thank God for blessing me with what I do have.
Thank Father God that my hair is growing back.
Happy Hair Growing!
Love this.....and your signature quote too!
"You are more than enough"
Such a beautiful reminder!
I don't like those rollers for that reason so I am going to stick with the perm rods.
I can’t figure out my porosity
My hair wets quickly and dries fast —> high porosity
My hair absorbs product easily —> high porosity
My hair floats forever in water —> low porosity
When I run my finger up my strand it feels smooth —> low porosity
I think I need to see my hair in a microscope to know for sure, but I don’t feel like going through the hassle of sending hair in for that service. Is it worth it?
Thank you !
Note to self.
I washed my hair for the first time in my kitchen sink and I had a love/hate feeling with it. I'm pretty sure I'm just going to go back to washing in the shower.
I love the kitchen sink. I hate having to stay in the shower doing my hair. Plus I can’t find a strainer for my bathtub
I wonder if anyone has ever rocked beads on an unseparated twist or braid out. I might try that
Maybe it’s medium porosity?
Check out westafricanbaby on Instagram. It’s so cute when she does it.
This makes me want to grow out my hair again, but I also like my hair shoulder length, it’s so easy to take care of it
The water test is really unreliable and I think your cuticles can be smooth and still be high just on the basis that finer strands probably have thinner cuticles maybe? If it acts high porosity just treat it as such. Or maybe treat it high to normal porosity.
This just seems super weird to me. Waveformers have been around for years, along with those cute little snail rollers that give a bantu type curl. Curlformers had so much time to come out with a variety of different shapes and types of rollers and are now attacking youtubers because they dropped the ball?
