    I judge hair care lines by their sales..... if you do 40% off every 3 months, why should I pay full price? Qhemet rarely has sales, so I think they have a steady client base....

    And once they start they can't stop. You'll never catch me paying full price for quite a few of the popular brands we talk about here. And if they did stop doing sales I wonder how long they'd able to stay in business, especially the ones we can't get in the stores.

    I'll always buy Qhemet. Since 2005. Thats my true staple line. She might discontinue a few items along the way but sister is steadfast in quality and performance.

    That is what I'm realizing and enjoying! My hair looked so nice last week when I used the ghee and the burdock root creme! They are for black hair and really hydrate.

    I need naturals that live close to me. So, we can meet up and I can give you these products that are staring at me.

    I dont like USPS. Lines are always long and one or two tellers.

    Why does wearing my hair as it grows from my head have to be a statement??? I just want to wear my hair without getting comments about it almost EVERY day.
    Today I was talking to my gardener and he said “I wish my curls would come back. My hair used to be curly like yours.” Then he takes of his hat and shoes me how it’s not curly anymore.

    I don’t want to talk about my hair to everyone. Even DH thinks my hair is a statement.

    @GettingKinky Think about it this way: A lot of the time, a lot of women wear braids with extensions and weave. Even though natural hair has been “in” for a while, it still amazes people to see “real hair” in the wild.

    I hope what I’m saying makes sense. My brain is everywhere right now :lachen:

    I get that seeing natural hair isn’t super common, but keep your comments to yourself. I am so tired of hearing people’s thoughts about my hair.

    An older black guy told me he just had to tell me he loved that I was wearing my natural hair.

    I just laughed and said thank you lol

    I really haven't been doing anything at all to my hair since I've put in these locs. I haven't even been spraying them with my FRW which I should be slapped for. Gonna be better.

    I finally cut the matted section of my hair. The right side of my head is basically a mullet :look: I refuse to cut it evenly at this time because it still smoothes nicely into a high bun. :drunk:

    I’ll give it 6 weeks of intense love then cut a few inches off before I braid it up for the winter. The plan is to stay in protective styles while evening it up gradually.

    Cutting didn’t even make me sad.

    Same, sis :lachen:I can’t let all these ponytail pieces go to waste. I’ll probably wear wigs because I don’t trust myself with box braids and the like right now. It inspires my laziness and y’all know I don’t need any help in that department :look:

    I've been swinging these box braids around all week/weekend out celebrating both me and my dad's b-days. Oiling my scalp and back to my normal routine today.

    I don’t have any ponytail pieces but I just can’t let my hair go lol. I don’t wear it out in the fall and winter and the next 19 months will be busy for me while I complete my masters degree so I’ll be in protective styles until April 2021 anyways.

    I’m going to do a much needed deep trim of about 2-3 inches on the rest of my hair before I twist it up this weekend.

    I have enough oil on my hair to oil at least 10 people’s legs and arm :lachen:

    After 24 years of not knowing how to cornrow, I finally got it. However I’ve come to realize I CANNOT cornrow large sections. My fingers can’t get between my thick roots.

    Sadly, I gave up about half way, then tried again, but with much smaller sections, and it’s a lot easier but more time consuming.

    Needless to say I’ve learned something:

    I’m cool with not cornrowing my hair.
