Random Hair Thoughts/Thinking out loud

I tried it and my curls are super tight, it's extremely short :(. I failed at stretching so I just brushed it out into a bun.
I get it. It took me months to get used to the way my wash n go looks. But it’s the only out style that works with my exercise schedule. I was also thinking about relaxing again, but I decide to give this hairstyle a serious attempt. I started going on the curly sites for ww, and got a Deva cut, both helped a lot.

Should I buy more of my now beloved SM conditioner or should I force myself to use up my 1 liter bottle of Kenra and my 1 liter bottle of Deva decadence? Which is more important, my hair happiness or my wallet happinesss?

I'm easy going.
I finally washed my hair after 5 or six weeks! Now I don't have to worry about walking past someone wondering if they smell my hair. To my defense I litterally had no time to sit down and detangle before washing, so that meant NO WASHING.

Today I had to leave the house in a hurry with conditioner and a plastic bag on my head. Got back home 5 hours later to continue my wash day.

One way to use up conditioners I don't like is to stretch the prefered conditioner with them. That's how I used up many of my stash last year. Mix 3:1 with the prefered condish as the main part.

I still love squish to condish, but it definitely works better with SM conditioner than with Kenra conditioner. I don’t know if it’s the ingredients or because SM is much thicker.

Ya'll aint never experiened the level of struggledom my hair has put me through. Privately and in public. o_O I won't go into detail.

Oh, but I did notice that the top of my head now is at shoulder length, and the rest (that hasn't fallen out) is past it. I will never cut all my hair off again. took too long. But I am happy :)

I want to self trim without relying on having my hair on a straight state so bad. I hate uneven ends (did that before), so I want a trim but without butchering the shape. I am still recovering from heat damage by staying off the flat iron and wearing my hair in a curly state all the time. I do not want to risk making the damaged areas even worst.

I was thinking of maybe attempting Naptural85's bolwdry trim method:
but her hair is so even already, which makes me doubt if it would work for me as well.
