    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!

    I trimmed my ends for the first time in a yr and honestly my ends really werent bad at all. I had to trim barely anything and its not even noticeable (to me). My wash and go came out BOMB after my trim and now its back in my routine twists. I'm really going to continue babying my hair. Prepoo with herbal oil, shampoo with a good sulfate shampoo, dc with either moisture/protein depending on my hairs needs, leave in and seal with my shea blend.

    That plus leaving it in twists is the game plan. I play in it occasionally but its mostly in my signature twists (and I love it). I'm finding surprisingly enough i like my hair put away more than out. I'll trim again in 6-8 months.

    It’s been 4 weeks since my Deva Cut. On the plus side I now let my hair air dry and shrink and it looks fairly decent. I’m also getting used to the volume.

    On the minus side - she cut part of one side too short and it doesn’t blend with the rest. But I don’t want to cut the rest of my hair shorter to make it blend with the short section. I’ll probably look for a different stylist when I go for a trim in 4-6 months.

    I took down each braid, sprayed it with aloe, detangled, and added avocado oil before I braided it back. This removed the shed hair, tightened my braids and moisturized my hair. Not to mention it saved me hours!! I may do this wash day hack next week too.

    The smell of someone who smokes car when the AC is on is the worst.

    Annddd these Bobbi Boss nu locs are not made for individual crotchet braids. YouTube lied. The website sent me color 30 instead of 1b/30 idc what this packaging says.

    Submitted my return request. I'll just wash and reused the ones I took out last month.

    So glad I tested this out before trying to install them.

    I think I’m officially a wash n go girl.

    My hair shrinks way more than I’d like, it has way more volume than I want, and it’s not shiny or bouncy, but I’m getting accustomed to it.

    The most important thing is that it fits my lazy lifestyle. It only requires 15-20 minutes in the shower 2-3 times a week.

    I may still play around with products, but for the most part I’m on autopilot now.

    I will admit I'm sooo late to this game but flax seed gel. Pure home made flax seed gel is AWESOME

    i have cottony hair and without gel and shea butter it just is a hard no on wearing it loose. Loves to dreed up and knot before you judge me for a texture argument. ''

    I am supposed to wash tomorrow but i really dont need to, for once. I used it on Braid outs which every video i saw said don't. But it was a 10 everytime.

    If you have ben thining about this and never pulled the trigger get in here
