    Botox Capilar recipe

    Going to risk it. For years, I've been looking for something to "texlax" the hair that is not ammonium-based nor any of the hydroxide-based relaxers. BKT has been it for about 3 years but I'm not very consistent with it. I order my product directly from Brazil. I'm tired of the straight and no curls. I just want something that wears off every month or two and gently loosens curls but eases me into straight when I want it. And being that I'm tired of waiting 2-3 weeks to get product from Brazil (with the excess shipping cost, nevermind that we pay 3 to 4 times the price for product anyway), I'm going to make my own "Botox capilar" and found a recipe online. So, for all you mixologists who have access to wholesale supplies and whatnot, here's a recipe. Please do your research on how lactic acid affects the hair strand:

    http://megacabello.com/botox-para-el-cabello/

    Yes, it's in Spanish but just copy and paste into Google Translate. And here is a video on how to "loosen curls" without destroying the pattern and give them a lot of body.

    My kid asked me “How’d you get a fro?” Now mind you I’m texlaxed now.

    I had taken my braids down last night and really finger detangled to put some X21 on. I left my hair like that and fell asleep.

    I told him “I woke like this”
    What I wanted to say was “:censored: if I know” :lachen:

    After checking my hair, I decided that I was getting too comfortable with sleeping on my satin pillowcase with no head covering. I wear headwraps in the day time, that’s why I didn’t cover my hair. However, the back of my head has been feeling a little weird so I just put in 4 ponytails and threw on a bonnet, but pushed it back cause I hate it on my edges unless there’s a scarf underneath.

    Speaking of ponytail holders, I LOVE the fat ones. All I do is wrap it around once and thassit. It’s marvelous. I was trying to find some solid black ones, but all Dollar Tree has is the multi colored ones. Luckily, my local beauty supply sells them. Also, I should never need another ponytail holders as long as I live. :lachen:

    But seriously, I have a little box filled to the brim with ponytail holders and other hair accessories. I bet not lose any of them lol

    It’s nearly 4am. Insomnia is something else. But thanks to YouTube, I now know how man weaves get installed. :look::drunk:

    Bye bye suggested videos that made any sense.

    Learned a new word! Anathema

    Someone or something dislikes a lot.

    Also used religiously, a vehement denunciation.

    Lmao! Anathema is the name of one of the characters, I'm sure because of the word meaning. I like Neil Gaiman and David Tennant so I was all over it.

    As a professor of children's literature (among other things) I get all goose-bumpy when normal people say that like Neil Gaiman.

    Argh... Don't ask how much I've spent on hair products recently. I've been watching too many youtube videos. Why can't my hair look and act like the ladies' in the videos? Grrrrrr. There must be a step in their videos they are NOT showing me.

    I miss my Tex-lax hair. As soon as I’m done PS’ing I’m getting it done.

    My scalp is itchy.

    Gonna wash tomorrow on my first day off for vacation!!! I want to use my clay but I just had my hair highlighted so I'm not sure if I want to go that route.

    I think I might go the Ayurvedic way and mix up some Shikakai with Amla, Brahmi, Tulsi, Maka and a tad bit of moringa powder while focusing on my scalp.

    I have a few Sheamoisture Deep conditioner bases I have to use up. Might throw some amla and brahmi up in one with a little honey and put my steamer cap on.

    So many ideas and only one head....

    If that’s the case, I’ve gotta get me some. Nothing will hold my short hairs in place in twists (real hair and marley). Edge control works pretty well, but not for long and jars are small.

    Try Curlz Passionfruit paste first. It will do the job, @blazingbeauty You have to do it on dry hair. Straight up beeswax is a pain to get out.

    It’s a really blunt bob. Not too short or too long. It doesn’t tangle. I think I’m in love :2inlove:
