I love homemade Flaxseed gel for my re-twists.
I've been taking Benadryl every night for the last year and that has helped me tremendously with itching. Give it a shot, it may help you too.
I’ll try that. Thank you!
I’m thinking about starting back with the Monistat for growth. I’ll add it to my wash day hack once a week.
I’m starting to notice bits of breakage from my real hair falling from my marley twists. I think because the hair escaped the twists.
I get so many compliments on the style, but I’m worried about my real hair underneath that it defeats the purpose of a long term protective style. So I’ll be taking them out by the end of June.
Has anybody experienced this with kinky/marley/senegalese twists?
I might do my sis some box braids before we go out tonight
Eta a pic. It took me a little over 2 hours
I love seeing black women wearing their own hair.
My new hair goal is mbl in my most natural state which is a braid out for my hair texture. i don't know how long hair will have to be for this. I was APL in a braid out before and TBL when I straighten a few year back for a big cut so maybe fairy length?
What do y'all think of this ingredient list? It's for Aphogee Curlific Hydrating Curl Serum.
So the cones with PEG in front of them are probably okay. Right?
I know that Trimethylsiloxyamodimethicone is supposed to be a very bad cone. But it's waaaay down the list.

What's wrong with oils and butters??
Your hair sounds like mine.
For a while, I lost interest in watching it, and just did my daily wash and gos and then when I paid attention again finally, I noticed it got sort of long. I mean it was longer than it ever was before... below APL. Then, of course, a stylist cut off 4 years of slow progress >sucks teeth<
I don't hate my hair though. I have pretty curls. And I've never been a beauty queen, so I accept looking crazy.

I have spent years nursing my edges and crown of my hair with scalp massages, applying JBCO & extra condioner on wash day. My edges and crown area are filled in beautifully. And I just realized how thin and fragile my nape is. It's a really loose texture than rest of my head. I will apply JBCO for the next 3 months to see if there is any difference.
I’m turning into a PJ I just bought the Briogeo Don’t Despair Repair DC and the Curl Charisma chia + flax seed coil custard. I can’t wait to try them. Now I need to get a heat cap for the DC.
@BillsBackerz67 @blackviolet @misskris816 @TallShyness
I await your thoughts on the DC. It's on my wish list.
I never DC with heat so I won’t have anything to compare it to. I’ll only know if I like how my hair turns out.
For me, they block out moisture instead of keeping it in. So my hair dries out instead of staying moisturized. I didn't realize that for myself until I started going to a particular salon that's anti oils & butters for hair.
This. Does not matter if it's prepoo, "sealing" the ends, on wet/dry hair, It dries out my hair and blocks moisture. I can tolerate it when it's mixed in with other ingredients in hair products, but on it's own it just doesn't work. It's not just coconut oil, other oils have the same effect.
Yes. Oil or butter in something is fine because usually water is the first ingredient. Just by itself, not so much.
I hate that packing. I don’t know when’s the next time imma be able to wash my hair lol
I’m loving my braids. I haven’t worn braids since my twenties lol. Looking young again haha. I sprayed my braids and scalp with aloe Vera this morning
Does anyone else’s head get itchy when they eat spicy food or is it just me? Lol
Any suggestions for moisturizing DCs for fine hair? Particularly, anything that helps with detangling natural hair
ok so i haven't had a hair goal in years, now that i have one i am already feeling impatient.
I’m testing TGIN honey hair mask. I liked it on my last wash (first wash ever) with it. Before that I was using Mane Choice heavenly halo. My hair felt softer after TGIN.
Wonder where @Sharpened has been?
I'm here, mostly lurking, randomly posting in other parts of the forum. I had a major mysterious issue inflame my scalp and lost over 50% of my hair at the root. I had to BC, but it's growing back, no bald spots. I don't know what happened; I thought it was an allergic reaction.
I can’t wait for my hot head to arrive. I think I’m going to use it to do a cellophane treatment.
