    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.

    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:

    I keep getting that suggestion as well literally any time I watch a hair video (which is rare and I generally don't keep them in my history).

    Yes, Sally doesn’t sell them anymore. You have to buy it on Ammyzon.

    The way i'm sweating in my head right now is why I cant get the style I want. This bump cap has a plastic insert and its just circulating the sweat and heat in my hair right now.

    I cant wait to get off work.

    Oh, that's okay then, that's where I always buy anyway. They didn't stop making them anymore, just that store doesn't carry them anymore. I wonder why? I suppose they weren't selling, though it's hard to imagine why ...

    I just got my first ever jar of Shea butter. Peeled off the foil and my dog came running as if I called him- then he licked the foil clean. I can’t imagine what he’s gonna be like when I start putting it in my hair :lachen:

    The inside of this bonnet does not feel like silk. I flipped it around to the “outside” where it feels smoother.

    How people manage to use detangling tools and get nice looking hair after will apparently be a forever mystery for me.

    I want a new flat iron. I don't need one. My FHI Runways both work perfectly but last year I wanted to buy the EAP titanium just to have a titanium flat iron. The only reason I didn't buy it then is because I bought the Revair. I really hope they will have another 55% +off sale for Black Friday again this year so I can buy a flat iron or two or 3 lol. I signed up for the EAP mailing list and will wait and see.

    Hair that’s already grown out of our head isn’t effected by hormones anymore, right? I feel like that’s right but people keep asking questions and got me wondering.

    That’s correct. Without going off on a biological tangent, essentially, the physical hair we can see isn’t carrying out any sort of biological processes. Our hormones can mostly affect the quality of hair we produce, or how our follicles function since they’re the actual parts of hair production that are alive.

    There’s a disproportional number of people who I’ve come to realize don’t really know how to differentiate between that. But if they keep asking you just hit them with that google search lol.

    So I decided to try and use up the bit of rice of water I left. However it’s been fermenting in my fridge for like 3 weeks. 3. Whole. Weeks.

    My hair feels great but smelled like hot breath and wet dog for some hours.

    This feels like a bonnet I got from the beauty supply store, but it is not something I bought from the beauty supply store. I feel like I overpaid trying to support someone. It’s all good though.
