    When my Briogeo DC arrived it was leaking so I emailed to let them know. They said they would send me a replacement. I got not one replacement, but two. I’m not sure what happened, but I hope it’s great since I have so much now.

    Three days at the beach did a number on my hair. Even after DCing my hair still won’t hold as much water as it did before the beach days. I hope it recovers quickly.

    My hair has been feeling like crap lately. So, for the heck of it, I went back to one of my old SOS hair concoctions of honey, egg yolk and coconut oil. Oh...ma...gahhhh! My hair is sooooo soft! :drunk:

    Thinking of giving in to the creamy crack. Havent relaxed since about dec 2016. Hair has been in a bun er'day except for a wedding I was in and I had a sew in. I miss wearing my hair down. I know if I get my natural hair straightened it will revert like no other.

    Have you tried wash n gos? I was wearing buns ALL the time, but now that I’ve figured out the wash n go, it’s my everyday style. Of course that won’t really help if you prefer straight hair.

    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.

    I just massaged my scalp with monistat and avocado oil. Then I inverted for a quick minute. My longest layer is almost waist length. I need about another inch. Waist by December is within my reach. I plan on trimming at least once before then too.

    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 used to love the Kenra and I haven’t even tried the Deva Decadance yet. I feel like if I but more SM I’ll never even try the Deva.

    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.

    Last month I made 4 years natural. I bought a pair of sharp scissors. I hope to do an extensive search and destroy tomorrow if I have a few hours on my hands.

    i would buy more sm because i know it works but experiment with the other dc's just to get rid of them ( try them and if i don't like make concoctions out of them).
