    My DC isn’t going to be delivered until Monday and I won’t be home next weekend so I can’t try for a long time. :cry3:I should have just driven to Sephora and bought it on the ground.

    I might do a henna treatment this weekend. I have some free time but no coconut milk. Hmm

    Some days I think I want to be all natural and make my own hair/skin products. But most days I just like the ease of buying everything from the store.

    I really like my lily silk sleep bonnet. It’s so lightweight so my head doesn’t get hot, and it stays on all night. I just bought a second one.

    This past weekend I was in New Orleans for a friends event, I got in early to hang out in the French Quarter on Friday. I had a twistout from mini twists the prior week. It was hot and I sweated my behind off the majority of the day. My hair grew big and full over the course of the day. I was waiting for my Uber that evening and this couple walked up to me. The lady said your hair is gorgeous, it that a twist out. I said yes, she asked what products I used and I told her. The guy steps in and says your hair looks so healthy and your ends are amazing. I am a cosmetologist and I have to say your hair is beautiful. I was flattered and it just remind me how much I love this forum and the information shared here has done for my caring for my hair.

    Yesterday I was playing around with my back twists and stretched it out. Of course standing up it's different but this was fun and made me happy :)

    My hair has been much drier since I gave birth. I've made progress hydrating it, but the battle is getting old. I want my pre-pregnancy hair back.

    No pictures, sweat was pouring off me in that Louisiana heat, didn't give a second thought to taking selfies which is why I was so caught off guard by the compliment.

    My WnG came out pretty good. My hair is defined and hangs a little below armpit length when fully dry. That being said I can't imagine myself doing this style very often. I prefer the look of twists and am uncomfortable with my hair down and out. If its going to be down, twistouts and braidouts give more consistent results.

    Your WnG hangs to APL? Your hair must be soooo long. I think I would need floor length hair before my WnG looked that long.

    Me too. I showed my kids some pictures and neither of them was feeling it. All I could think about was how easy my hair would be and they were thinking I would be changing my identity. 19yo DS said, “That’s cute, but not for you. 90% of the memories in my phone are of you with that hair” as he pointed to my two day old twist out fro. :rolleyes: I guess I’ll wait a little longer...

    I'm really impatient. I say I want long(er) natural hair so my wash and go will at least cover my ears but it's going to take soooo long. Especially with my shrinkage. Like maybe I can find a bomb natural curly wig when I want that look and just keep it short.

    I’m right around APL and haven’t really gained any real length in at least a few years. I enjoy my hair but it’s work and I’m thinking about change.

    I’m obsessed with perfecting my wash n go. I want to redo it every day until I figure out the perfect technique so I can get it right EVERY time.
    But I don’t have that kind of time. I’ll have to make do with every 2-3 days.

    I got a random compliment on my hair today by the waitress at the pizza place where I had lunch.

    I need to figure out how to replicate this result. But I’m getting my gray colored in 2 days and I know my hair will be unhappy for days afterwards.

    I think that I'm gonna start a length goal for the front of my hair. I find that although pulling from the back makes me feel like my hair is long, when I pull from the front I'm always a bit disappointed because the front length doesn't match the back length. The back is full waist close to hip, while the front is just past BSL or what would be MBL I guess if you could see the back through the front. Basically somewhere just below my chest.

    So hopefully by the end of the year I can get to belly button length (I know it's a lofty goal!!,but I was there before my impromptu bathroom cut last October) in the front. I'm trying to get to full hip by my graduation in the spring.
