    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.

    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.

    I couldn’t find the dc challenge, but I did a masquintense treatment for an hour last night without heat.

    I have to find something to do to my hair. I can’t keep my hands out of it and I think combing it everyday is a bad idea since I take my buns down everyday to add the X21 cream to it. My smart self took the spray to storage. I might do jumbo Havana Twist or jumbo braids. I need to enforce a two week maximum wear period for my hair.

    I think I'm going to pull out the locs at the front in order to wash them and reinstall. But I'll see how I feel this weekend for sure. especially since my blowdryer sprung apart and does not want to be put back together.

    Tell me why I just found some Xcel21 Spray in the Bss down the street from my Aunt’s house? And for $6.99 too. Y’all know I snatched up 3 bottles, but I left the rest lol. Might go back and get them :look:

    I suspect it's the grease that has my hair feeling so soft and nice.

    Outside of raw ingredients (shea butter, dried herbs and powders etc) it's been a long time since I've actually fully finished a commercial (store bought) product and replaced it. Granted it took me 3 years, but I did it. I usually grow tired of them and throw them away or give them away :lachen:Like I just do not have the patience or even the will in me to use products that perform mediocre on my hair...why should my hair suffer because my will was weak?! :lachen:But I actually finished a product and then replaced it, simply because it performed well and I loved everything about it. Who am I? IDK but I like this lil Lady! :lachen:

    Wait, the yellow bird is discontinued?! Nooooo! That's the best dryer with an attachment, and such a reasonable price. My stylist recommended the Silver Bird and I bought it, but I like the yellow bird better. The heat settings ate better too. Only thing better about the silver bird is it's lighter

    I don't get them anymore since I clicked not interested. Lately I've been getting Angry Birds suggestion videos instead....my kids stay on my tablet so I'm assuming that's why :lachen:
