    I’m obsessed with figuring out my curly hair. I’m even to the point of reading what ww with curly hair do.

    I need a blow dryer and better flat iron. Thinking of that Revlon brush for the former.

    This was (and to some extent still is) me through out my hair journey. I like to explore other techniques and methods to see what might work for me.

    Straightened my hair between last night and this morning and I think the yearn for straight hair long term has worn off. My last wng was pretty fire so I'll stick to that routine.

    Still trying to figure out a way to get into the beauty business. I would try influencing but it's so saturated now. I don't want to give up....I worked so hard for my license

    My hair has been frustrating since using the demi color on my hair in February. My hair has turned from mostly low to normal to high porosity (except a section in crown which has be leading to high porosity for awhile). I don't know how to deal with high porosity and using products in my stash has not been working. :pullhair: I have even thought about just shaving my hair off and starting over. Granted. I just need to practice some patience and with time, it will get back to normal.

    It’s enough room for everyone. Get on social media and get to networking.

    I can say for certain that the Yellowbird I have works great when I use it, except I don’t think my natural hair liked to be blow dried.. I got mine from Sally’s years ago. I don’t know if they’ve changed anything since I bought mine.

    Edges. I got em but dont care to showcase them as is the current trend. It's not in keeping with my lazy natural style! I did this trend in the late 70's early 80's...think I'll sit this round out.

    Not a huge fan of this protective style. It's not bad or even the least bit ugly, but it has been irritating me and it's just not my preference in terms of the size of the braids. This one is only staying in for one month on the dot.

    I think the reason the Melanin Twist Creme worked so well is because I used it on old hair. I tried it on freshly washed hair, with just the leave in, and I needed an oil.

    Also, I’m just realizing that my strands are fine. They feel different when they’re dry. And my ends REALLY need a trim. They’re breaking off badly :cry3:
    Thursday can’t get here fast enough.

    I think it’s because someone is using her face to sell them. I had the screenshot but I don’t know what happened to it.

    This would make sense, but again the only path seems to aggressively target the persons actually doing the selling. *cough* and come out with the product you claimed to have copyrighted*cough*

    I’m so tired of my hair shrinking up to chin length. What’s the point? Sigh....

    I think I need to go back to our puff routine. Easy, works me and the kids, continuously soft & moisturized hair, doesn't require 50-11 products, no gel needed, etc, etc, etc lol.

    Thanks girl. I'm still fantasizing about it. It's been five years since I found this website and I just still don't have that love for my hair like so many on here do. I just don't know :crybaby: I think I might texturize it or something one day. I just wanna be happy with my hair.

    So I washed my hair with my new products/regimen.
    Redken extreme shampoo, joico moisture balm, redken anti snap, redken extreme length sealer, redken all soft Argan oil.
    My hair is soooo soft! It’s feels like butter:toocool:. Tomorrow I’ll blow dry and flat iron and see how it looks

    Lol! This is exactly how I’m feeling right now. I’m only keeping mine in for 4 weeks. Even the countdown has been like: “It’s only been 3 days!!” Lol. SMH.

    One month PS is better than nothing...

    Growing out a tapered cut was all fun and games when the sides weren't that long, now I find it hard to style. I've been the queen of clip ins and drawstring ponytails.
