    I only follow a handful of people on YouTube for hair and they rarely upload videos, so outside of those few...I am out of the loop with whats going on. Yesterday, a got a suggested video to watch somebody scratching huge flakes of dandruff and dirt off of somebody else's scalp. I was like what in the entire hayle?! Is this what the hair folks on the YT doing now?!

    Not really hair folks, but there's a huge part of youtube dedicated to the gross/weird stuff, from popping pimples and scratching flakes to cracking backs and all that. It can be soothing to watch.

    I love the lighting in my car. My hair looks amazing when I look at myself in the rear view mirror. When I look at my hair in the bathroom at work, it looks awful.
    What a difference lighting makes.

    Oh no!!!!! I just went to my hair stylist website to check her hours but she is only taking weave clients now. I just want a press and trim for my birthday. :cry3::cry3::cry3:
    Who's going to do my hair now?! I'm terrified of looking for a new stylist.

    Dr. PP is the OG lol. I can't manage everything she does, but the good ones are good. Also watching people get their backs cracked up and down is my go to when pulling out braids.

    I took down about half of my crochet braids and split most of those in half. Now my hair is very full, I think I probably went a smudge overboard but it looks much much better than ole baldy sparse mcgee I was rocking before. I'm keeping this hair in for at least 2 months. I'll probably try to buy the right kind to change over if I plan to push it until December. But even with 3.5 packs of hair on my head it's still a whole lot lighter than box braids.

    I am fascinated by sisterlocks. If it weren’t for the fact that they have to be retightened every 6-8 weeks, I would get them tomorrow. They are beautiful.

    I tried to use my Ouidad gel... Ha! My hair is in a ponytail. Tonite I empty it down the drain and put the bottle in recycling. The end.

    If you don't have a 3B or looser curl pattern - Ouidad is not for you. IMO

    I had this gel. Complete trash for my hair. Only good for wig-grooming.

    I bought a new car this weekend, it has a high drivers seat which I love. I need to come up with a creative way to cover it with satin or silk for the back of my hair. I am in braids at the moment so I have time to come up with something cute.

    When I get some coins I want to try hair Botox. It has keratin and it claims to give me sleek hair for up to 8 weeks. Perfect time frame. A bottle is $50 and it has enough for 4 applications. 8 months of smooth hair for the low low. Yes please!! The brand is Nutree and y’all know I’ll have a review coming. Keratin treatments just aren’t working the same.

    Uncurly keratin worked the best, but the fumes were unbearable. I had to sit outside in the backyard just to be able to breathe. Ok keratin was fine, but it wore off within weeks. I’ve tried a few other brands and they just didn’t do it for me. Liquid keratin smells great and leaves my hair shiny, but I was relaxed when I used that brand.
