    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.

    8F21F533-919A-4D89-B9DF-CE7EC4776DD1.jpeg My bday is in 3 days y’all and I’m so excited. I wanted to do a keratin treatment Thursday, but I’m not trying to spend my bday doing hair. This new wig I got is really cute. I think I’ll just wear it for my bday weekend.

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

    I just gave my hair a much needed trim to deal with the SSKs. Even with the heat damage I did not see as many splits as I expected. My ends looked like they were in pretty good shape besides the knots. But I still dusted them since I'm probably not going to do this again until next year. My twists feel great.

    I cannot wait to have longer hair so that my hair will look nicer in buns and bantu knots. I wear my twists up but I feel that having such a small bun makes me look childish. :perplexed:

    I really wanted to wash my hair today, but lying in bed reading a book seems like a better idea...

    I’m feeling extra pretty and confident today. My mom told me I look Egyptian with this hairstyle. I’m feeling myself a bit. I go see bae this weekend too. It’s gonna be lit. He’s a Gemini too and when we link up it’s fire

    My hair is not tangling or dry (been straight for 3 weeks), but my scalp is getting itchy. I think I'm going to use my scalp exfoliate along with my regular shampoo. I probably need to buy my own ORS stuff instead of borrowing my mom's :look: . I'm definitely going to be too tired to straighten it again tonight, so a twist n'curl it is!
