    Trying to get into the mental head space to take down these mini braids. Love getting them put in but not so much in taking them out. Gonna take them out this week and do a overnight prepoo with fresh aloe vera gel then wash out with Bentonite clay.

    One of the owners died a few months ago. I think the business has halted at the very least, but I'm not holding out for them to start back.

    I think if I were to go natural again, somebody else would have to take care of my hair. Every single step, from the washing and deep conditioning to the styling. My arms told me they were done with that life :lachen:

    I did the worst possible thing to my hair, I touched up my roots with demi permanent dye and immediately put mini braids in. The take down was awful this time because my hair was so dry and the braiding hair kept getting tangled at the ends of my hair. I had to cut the single strand knots all throughout. I am going to baby my hair with deep conditioning with my steamer for the next month. I am also going back to air drying my hair and greasing my scalp on wash day too.

    I wish that my chest wasn't so dang broad. I'm past APL in the back, but my hair doesn't look like it from the front :ohwell: .

    I've been wearing my hair straight since May (I think), and I've only had a day here or there where I wanted my natural curls back. Getting my curls back would mean big chopping again, and I'm not that pressed LOL! In the future, I'll go back to my natural pattern, and when I do, I'll start locs. It would be the perfect time to go for it!

    But in this moment, I want to get to swangin' WL hair :bdance: before I bite that bullet.

    I’m letting my color conditioner (magenta) sit on my hair for about 30 minutes. Then I’ll shampoo and dc

    I'm honestly starting to wonder if my hair really likes natural products (i.e. conditioners, leave ins) or not. My hair and I have been in an epic battle the last few years (splits like crazy) and really the only thing that's different is that I started to use a lot of "natural" conditioners and leave-ins instead of my "normal" salon items. I'm going to do a mini-experiment and see what happens when I use my JOICO products for a little while because my hair really isn't happy at the moment (I'm still going to seal and stuff because I've always done that).

    I've realized that there isn't a lack of 4b/4c representation on YouTube. A lot of 4b/4c YouTubers have small channels so they never end up in the recommended videos

    I just cannot fathom that this lady only washes her hair every 6-8 months. Not melanin deficient either. She doesn’t wear her hair out at all, and is under wigs 99.9% of the time, plus she uses dish soap to wash her hair when she does wash it. She’s currently texlaxed, but was previously natural. Her hair is pretty long too. There truly is different strokes for different folks. My brain just can’t wrap around it :lachen:

    I tried wrapping my hair for the first time since I started using heat in May. Nope! It's not for me! I put my hair into a high ponytail if I want it to stay straight, and in a bun if I want some waves.
