Between protective styles and rice water - My hair is growing. I do need to clip my ends.

I forgot how big my head is. I thought I could put my hair in one ponytail...nope. I need a few more inches.
I debated* pulling out my hair yesterday vs. on the weekend. Only kept it in because I feel like I need to keep it in for 3 weeks in order to get my value for money? It doesn't make sense out loud.
Anyways I'm gonna put in individual crochet locs this weekend as soon as I take these braids down because that's at least something I can do myself and have it look cute. I just need to make sure I put more in the front than I usually do.
Yup ya'll guessed it I still have these braids in. I just love the ease of not having to bother with my hair.
Still getting compliments on the box braids but I'm already over this hair style. I was hoping to get two months of this style but I'll be lucky to get two weeks out of it. It still looks good but I'm ready to rock a braidout.
I almost never keep a style in longer than a month. I understand completely
Thanks, glad to know I'm not alone. lol
Are you still planning to do the knotless box braids? I just ordered some more braiding hair and have been watching tutorials too. I think this will be my next style.
I am, but it’s gonna take more time before I get to it then I realized. I think I understand the gist of it, now it’s just actually making time for it.
Why did 3 of my family members think my hair was fake
finally washed my hair after who knows how long.
I did a prepoo with my herbal oil infusion (making sure not to get on scalp because it causes irritation on my scalp)
detangled as i went along and put in a large braid per section
let sit until i was ready to wash (12 hrs or so)
shampooed with a sulfate free shampoo
dc'd with my honey child (may replace with bakura letche con)
sat with hot head for 30 min
then applied my leave in (giovanni direct)
and applied my herbal shea butter mixed in my hands with a good smelling leave in
Now its just twisted up in my usual twists in a bun.... feels great!!!!
I'm obsessed with buying deep conditioners, cowashes and daily hair moisturizers..... nothing else....
i'm obsessed with the whole blends line. its really cheap but great. maui moisture is crap but they have great shampoos.
Why is my hair still surprising me after four years of being a loose haired natural?? 3/4 of the way down, my hair looks like a bunch of comb coils and Shirley Temple curls on top of frizz. I’ve never seen this on MY head before. It even did it during the washing process, I could feel the corkscrews & coily clumps. Does that mean the 2-3 inches closest to my scalp are drier & that’s why they don’t clump, just frizz?
I need to figure out a way to fix this because defanging is so much easier for me when the curls are clumped. Any ideas?
I'm having my hair re-braided tomorrow but I'm debating experimenting with wearing it naturally.
Flexi rods seem like they'll be easiest since I've never done this before. I'm meticulously researching before I do anything.
This Houston humidity was so disrespectful last night. I straightened my hair and it fro’d out on the patio. I’m so sad
My ends have been very busy and dry for while so I have been dusting them every few weeks. I knew I need to cut them off completely but didnt have the heart to do it. I asked my niece who is a hairstylist to trim my hair before putting in my box braids. She clipped those ends with such ease at least two inches... I was sad for a minute but I knew it had to be done.
So, I decided that I’m going to big chop next Saturday. I’m tired of dealing with two textures.
And I also ordered my first wig today. I’ve been thinking about getting one for a while now and finally decided of this wig
It’s only $20 bucks, so if I don’t like it, it’s not that big of a deal.
can't wait for my bekura leche dc to come in the mail!!!!! I hope it can replace my beloved myhoneychild honey hair mask.
Yeah, I heard that MHC discontinued most of her line! There is so much competition out there.....
I tried Qhemet's Burdock Root cream today. So far so good. 2-3 days will tell the tale.....
I hate when people at work call my hair fun.
Installed the crochet faux locs without any issues yesterday. My scalp finally feels under control. I always underestimate how rough box braids are on the scalp. I at first thought it was the size but it's really the whole installation method.
Ended up taking my hair out Sunday, washing and blow drying and then stopping in the shop for two long french braids. More than likely will keep them in for two weeks and then relax my hair.
I wish I had the type of head that could wear a really low cut like fade type cut... like nearly bald. I don’t enjoy hair anymore.
Got a super cute braidout from 4 shower braids. The lazy natural that I am is quite happy about that.
lol... how is it fun????? thats a confusing statement....
all thats left is the type 4 cream.... i guess she couldnt handle the influx of new companies coming in.... too bad her stuff was really good....
Why do they have to say ANYTHING.?
Every time I straighten my hair I contemplate becoming a straight hair natural again but it never happens.
