Yup, and I usually say umm try Myhoneychild grease, lol.
I’m slowly but surely getting rid of all hair devices from my former hair life...I have two giant barrel curling irons (yes, curling irons ) that are headed for goodwill or some place.
I am not disciplined enough to twist all my hair up in two hours or so. My back gets stiff, my arms get tired, and I get bored. I need to find another style to do that takes an hour or less in my time, cause I’m not a fast hair doer I think once my hair gets longer, the less amount of twists I’ll have to do, and the better my arms and patience will be
I have a feeling I might find this out as well.
*I* think my hair is medium strands, but I know my sister and rest of my family on my dad's side have fine strands....
If a hairdresser one day told me my strands were actually fine in thickness for all these years, I'd accept/believe it (looks medium to me though)
Here’s a test I read about it. Hold a single strand between you fingers and see if can you feel it? If you can’t feel it, you have fine strands. That’s how I decided that I have fine hair.
It is so weird how my scalp has not flaked in weeks since I quit using Eco styler gel? Idk what happened, but I use to have to use Nizoral weekly to control the psoriasis. I had dry scalp issues all my life, so it has not started with my use of Eco, but it seems that it has gotten worst within the time frame I heavily used Eco. I stopped using it about 3 weeks ago, and my scalp is so clean without using Nizoral. It's not product buildup because I clarify often with Redken cleansing cream, and I consistently shampoo scalp/length, so I am not sure what happend all of sudden lol
I wish my hair were more consistent day to day. I’m a very predictable person and I like routine. My hair doesn’t match my personality at all.
Yesterday my day 3 hair was a big floppy fro. Today it’s freshly washed with lots of hang time. By the end of the day it will be somewhere in between.
My coworkers are probably so confused.
About to jump back on cheap drugstore ish with these student loan payments going up. Don't need anything right now at least.
Does anyone still use Sebastian Laminates? I wanted to use it for my wigs that I color. Any advice? I really appreciate any help
I predict a new trend in the natural hair community, sweet potato! on a serious note, I am intrigued to try it, I don't think I have the patience to DIY though lol
Looks interesting. I’d be too tempted to eat it though lol
I think Mahoganycurls did a sweet potato dc a couple years ago. Looked great but I never tried it.
ETA: On second thought, it may have been pumpkin. Also, I hate the all caps "I did xyz" video titles everyone does nowadays lol. Reminds me old click bait articles "SHE DID THIS AND YOU'RE NOT GONNA BELIEVE WHAT HAPPENED!"
Nubian twist suck as a protective style on my hair. They dry out my hair and cause knots during the take down.
Shrinkage is one of my hairs worst enemies. I took my hair out of twist to deep condition and didn't put them back in. That was a big mistake. I had to detangle all over again! The ends of my hair like to hug too much to be washing loose natural hair
Gave myself a protein overload. Haven’t goofed like that in years. YEARS I tell ya! Ends feel amazing. Roots feel like Velcro.
Same here. I remember trying to wash my hair loose once like I’d seen others do, just revisiting the idea. It ended in tears and frustration.
I just love coconut oil. I put some on my ends last night and braided it in 2 pigtails. Gotta keep these strands strong!
Theres a plus size white woman at work thats wearing a pair of jeans so well, I want to clap every time she walks by.
I'd love to compliment her but ole girl might spazz out on me , LOL. In my head, Im clapping though!
I hate coconut oil(left in) and wish I loved it because it smells so good. @Prettymetty
I’m seriously leaning towards locking my hair, but I have TONS of hair products
I guess I’m growing my son’s hair out
I wish the puffcuff worked for me. Right now I'm using those round banana clips and they work wonders for my fine hair. There's just too much of a gap in the puffcuff to keep my hair secure but I love how durable they are. Also the price.
Question y’all: Are you supposed to dye natural hair freshly washed or on dirty hair? I poked around on the Internet and I found conflicting answers.
Since it seems like companies are going out of business overnight, I have picked up a bad habit of buying things in multiples or more . I want to be prepared just in case.
I'm tired of wearing my hair in a bun and bang style. Plus when I use too much gel my scalp starts to get overly itchy. I'm thinking about doing a co wash tonight and just wearing my hair in two french braids until my wigs come in.
Off to go order atleast 3 new wigs now.
My stylist does it on dirty hair (semi-permanent and demi-permanent) and it seems to work well.
That’s what the lazy person in me wanted to hear
I’m thinking about going back dark... I bought a chestnut rinse today and I plan to rinse and straighten Monday. My honey will be here Tuesday so I have to look goodt.
I quantified my shrinkage today. My hair shrinks by 2/3!! And this is after sleeping in a pineapple
At my nape 12 inches looks like 4
In the back 16 inches looks like 6
So for my hair to look an inch longer, I have to grow 3 inches. So best case my hair looks 1.5 inches longer every year.
I miss a lot of the hair products I was using back in 2011-2013 ish. Tresemme Naturals, original YesTo products, HE Drama Clean, etc. All cheap and worked great.
Yep, and as soon as they started changing the formula or discontinued the products, I had to start all over. That’s why I became a product junkie lol, these people weren’t loyal.
