    So I was on another hair forum, and huntyyyyyy....I feel kind of bad that I copped an attitude, but I’m sooo not the one to start trolling on the internet. I wasn’t even remotely speaking to this person.

    There’s another one called long hair community. But the majority of the users have hair in the 1a-2c. I think of all the 3-4’s that are on there, that are active, I can count on both hands. And of those that are relaxed, including myself, there’s like 3 lol.

    You aren’t missing out on anything though. If I had a quarter for every time someone said something dumb or irrelevant I’d have enough to pay for the rest of my college career. Believe me.

    I’d love to see more people inquire about hair texture such as ours and learn and understand from one another concerning hair care, but I guess it’s just one of those things where if people don’t want to research, or expand their knowledge then hey, stay like that, not my problem.

    One of my pen pals frequents the site a lot, so I’m always messaging her on there. She’s like my hair toy dealer lol.

    Yeah I really enjoy talking with her. She actually took the time to understand our hair, and when I talk to her about certain things going on with my hair, she’s not standing there looking like a deer in headlights lol.

    It’s not all bad though. Hopefully with time people can expand their understanding.

    It’s 2019, how much time do they need?
    The Internet has been a thing for forever:lachen:

    I understand though.

    NaturallyCurly Curltalk forum used to be like that @PlanetCybertron

    A lot of the looser hair types used products for Type 4s, which is why Sheamoisture is so big. NC used to be popping. I learned a lot about my hair on there and Nappturality. NC lost its cool when they started monitoring our posts OD .

    Nappturality and NC spawned a lot of hair care lines.

    I met a lot of company owners on both sites ( meet and greets, sponsorships, blogging, product giveaways)


    Curly nikki forum was good too but died down after awhile.

    CN killed their own forum after they switched forum software and wouldn't update the app. Both were awful to use after that. I still talk to handful of people thanks to IG and other messaging apps at least.

    When I first went to Evan Joseph Salon, that's the only thing Cheyenne used to style me. Course it was perfect. I've tried it on my own and it doesn't turn out as defined. Soft. Moisturized. But not enough definition for me.

    Nothing irks me more than these owners refunding my products that’s oos without an email telling me they are doing so. I opened my package and half the items aren’t there only to see the invoice has refund around the missing items. :angry2:

    You went to the Evan Joseph salon? I’m so jealous. I would LOVE for him to cut my hair. He is so detailed. I’m constantly stalking him and Cheyenne on Instagram.

    Do you follow his no oils/butters philosophy?

    I didn’t know the founder of Briogeo was black. I’m going to buy some products. For sure the DC.

    Yup. For about a year now. Cheyenne is my stylist. I just was in there last Wednesday. Lol. Cool people. Very nice salon too. I do follow their no oils/butters philosophy.

    Have you noticed a big difference in the moisture level of your hair since you started going?

    I have. I don't think oil worked for me. Hot oil rinses made my hair hard. It wasn't all silky and smooth afterwards. I used to put oil on my scalp at my nape because I had a spot that was broken off. When I cut out oiling that area, hair grew back.

    Butters for wng are too thick for me.

    Now I will say I'll use a twisting souffle, which is pretty close to a butter consistency, for flat twists for a twist out. That's because I'm need something thick to hold the strands together and I don't necessarily want more moisture to get in my hair so my twist out is poofy.

    So for me, cutting out oils and butters (mostly) work. I know there pllennttyy of people who use both and out here looking like Repunzel.

    So while I know their comments get hostile because people don't agree with them, they do seem to keep their opinions on their own pages.

    I sprayed my ends with aloe juice and smoothed some argan oil on top. It smells so good!!

    I actually want to go to his salon or jaded tresses in NYC to cut my hair once I have some decent hang time.

    I’d love to support her business regularly, but man her products cost so much for me. And I know I’d need two of everything judging by how much hair I have.

    I'm seriously tempted. I'm a sucker for pretty packaging and the ingredients sound heavenly for my hair.
