    Trying new things is fun until your hair doesn't come out nice.

    Confirming my belief that generic products are NOT as good!!!!

    My hair is in need of a good clarifying shampoo. It has been dryer than I like it for a while. My press looks good the first week but week 2 I get webbing. Before baby I could keep moisturized press for a good 4-5 weeks in southern humidity without issue. I am almost out of my post partum window and although I am grateful that I didn't have any major postpartum setbacks I want my hair routine back not a "new normal". I looked in my cabinet and I have a bunch of clays, garlic shampoos and moisturizing shampoos but no clarifying shampoos. I ordered some clarifying shampoos from sally's when I woke up this norming. No rush...but I'mma need fly Thanksgiving Hair to last until I am ready for fly Christmas hair.

    My hair is so weak. The ends have slowly disappeared and are pathetic. I'm going big chop TODAY and just start over!

    2020 has to be better!!!!!!

    I’m so in love with Aunt Jackie’s Quench leave-in conditioner! I thought I would never find a product defined my curls without making them greasy. :love:

    I ended up getting the Rusk Clarify Rosemary Quajilla and Detoxifying Shampoo. I love it. I bought it from Sally's because it usually retails 13-15 bucks but is on clearance right now for $5. I bought this shampoo for the purpose of giving my hair a deep clean so I could have a blank slate and it did it's job. I wanted squeaky clean hair which it gave. The good thing about it though is even though I could tell it stripped my hair as intended, the lather kept my hair from tangling which isn't always an easy task whle using a strong clarifying shampoo. As soon as my deep conditioner touched my hair it glided on and had immediate softness. After I deep conditioned detanging was effortless. It's too soon for me to know if this is a one time fluke or a staple in the making but I am very happy with this shampoo functioning as described. It smells like mint. I've been swinging my hair like new weave all day lol. A good deep clean was just what I needed. I will see how long this press lasts for the final verdict.

    I’m doing an Ion keratin treatment right now. I hope it lasts a few weeks at least. I wanted to buy hair Botox from Nutree, but it’s sold out.

    I’ve become a fan of shrinkage too. Once I got a good curly haircut with a nice shape, I was all for it.

    What made you love your shrinkage?

    I hated it for years but I learned it is my little secret, no one knows how long my hair is but me most days. Plus, my hair is fine and damn near see through after a certain length relaxed. Now it is a fullness all over all the time now. I even wear my wigs short as well.

    I think I might sell my Revair. I haven’t used it since I moved, and I really only used it twice.

    On second thought - I’m going on a personal “cruise control” challenge for the rest of the year and next year.

    1. No new products (only staples, save money)
    2. Stick to my tried & true styles that look good
    3. Stick to my regimen
    4. Keep up with trim schedule

    I’m sick of my hair even though all I do is keep it braided underneath my wig. Maybe I need some braids or a sew in. I might randomly get some locs. Winter makes me hate my hair.
