    @PlanetCybertron Nnice job on the retention but ugh @ those people. Idk if it can even be called a race thing because in my case it was always other black people who touched my hair. I will never understand why anyone thinks it's ok to touch any part of someone without their permission.

    That sounds very interesting. I’ve heard of reflecting other negative energies from your person, so I’ll have to try that

    Thank you!

    I think I’ll also just reserve the showing off for date night. Complete strangers tend to not even think twice about being in someone’s personal space.

    I guess it’s also because my co-workers are comfortable around me, but still. No touchy! Lol

    This is the only picture I took after straightening. I was getting ready for work that morning so excuse me being in my underwear lol. I also took the picture with the smallest mirror I have lol, but I can’t stand my bathroom mirror. Crappy picture quality.

    I just prepood and washed/naked blow dried my hair. I’ll use the last of my keratin treatment after I eat something. I’ll buy the hair Botox next month. I can’t wait!

    So I just bought some Palo Santo smudge sticks and essential oil. If I like it, I'll rub a little oil into my hair to help cleanse any negative energy when I can't just wash my hair. If nothing else, the mosquito repellent feature will come in handy.

    Darn you @ItsMeLilLucky *shakes fist* :lachen:

    j/k, good looking out. :cheers:

    Lord help me, I’m about learn how to do knotless box braids in the very near future. I don’t know how they’ll turn out, or even if I’ll finish them :lachen:

    Those Qhemet Biologics products must be bomb. I was placing an order on Sephora and before I could check out it was SOLD OUT! They must have gotten in just a few pieces..... I want to try the burdock root butter and the Moringa detangling ghee. I hope I love the Burdock Root butter it can replace the Jane Carter product that appears to be disc.....

    I hate when companies use heat damaged hair side by side with post-chopped hair to promote their products and/or services. Implies the damaged was fixed vs simply cut.

    "Oftentimes, those who experience headaches while wearing a ponytail are already migraine-prone. "

    ...interesting. I've been down with a migraine for 3 days but I've also noticed over the last year or so ponytails, flat twists, etc give me a headache even when loosely done. Bobby pins and headbands are also a no go. I've also been more prone to migraines since.

    @water_n_oil
    I noticed this as well. It sucks. I even have this problem if I use a strong hold gel along my perimeter. I have to wash it out when I get home.

    Oh gosh yes, that ends up hurting too. I read on another site that many migraine sufferers have hypersensitive nerves in their head. Explains so much. I ended up having to take my wash day braids down earlier even though it's my usual 8 braids. Might end up back to doing wngs I guess.

    I have been debating the idea of flat ironing or blow drying to trim my hair for the last month and I think I finally decided to go with blowing it out with the Revlon paddle dryer and than trimming it my self. My biggest challenge is getting my hemline even, I decided to use naptural85's method as a guide since I just want an all across trim, no layers.

    @water_n_oil
    I have Fibromyalgia so all of my nerves are hypersensitive. I normally put in twist and secure them with these plastic updo barrettes but I was in the hospital with my mom recently and I had to put my hair in braids. The next morning my head felt as if it was being pulled apart. The funny thing is I could stretch the braids and place my fingers between my scalp and the braid base but it still felt like pure torture. Wash and go equals ssk and shrunken hair that also hurts. My shrinkage is unnatural.

    I love that I can do a sweaty workout with my wash n go and my hair still looks good.

    This hairstyle totally fits my lifestyle. I can be hair lazy and workout and still look decent.

    Girl me too! That's the reason why I dropped been a straight hair natural for Years and I started wearing WNGs exclusively in the last year. I love that I can sweat it up in the gym and my hair looks even better sometimes because the roots get fuller, especially for day 1 hair. Wearing straight hair was not practical for me to get serious at the gym at all.

    I am usually a little suspicious of hair products I order from Amazon, but I had a $50 gift card from my job. So I ordered a container of Camille Rose Almond Jai butter. Well, I got it today and checked against the one I picked up from Walmart. The packaging was different and it turns out the one from Walmart was dated 2012 and the one from Amazon was dated 2018. Go figure, the one for Walmart is all used up at this point.
