    I get a little nervous recommending people to my stylist because the salon is anti some popular hair concepts but so far it's been 2 for 2.

    I would love to go to your salon. Or get a Monacut. But I just can’t convince myself that flying cross country for a hair appointment is worth it.

    I know I said that I was going to get another relaxer, but I’ve decided to cut my hair and stay natural.

    Yesterday, I went to the bss and bought some braiding hair to install jumbo twist using the rubberband method. And I plan on leaving those in until the end of January, hopefully.

    I can’t find The Doux mousse on the ground anywhere. I really want to try it, but I don’t want to pay for shipping.

    Gonna try using cones for the next 3 weeks -- 4 weeks including last nights wash. I need to evaluate if they work for ME.

    Gonna use the Pattern shampoo, Mo' s Curl Restoration treatment and Pattern leave in (Those are my only products with cones....)

    My hair looks nice----- spirally --- shiny bouncy....

    I went to Trader Joes on Sunday and picked up Nourish Spa Shampoo, 2 bottles of the Nourish Spa conditioners and two jars of the coconut oil. The cashier who rang me up said you are about to have some clean hair huh? An older white man behind me said, No she about to have the cleanest, softest shiny hair of us all. I just smiled and said that's my goal at the moment. The older man even waved at me in the parking lot as I drove off.

    It happens. My hair hates shea butter, coconut oil, aloe vera and avocado in the first five ingredients of any product that is left in.

    Instead of taking my braids out i'm just going to stop and get the front redone. I've been keeping my scalp clean and moisturizing so i'm sure my hair is doing good underneath. I realized it was pointless to take my braids down and then head out on vacation in the heat/sun.

    I miss the ease of having braids. But I hated how quickly the braids would look messy. Definitely need to work out a balance.

    Today I sectioned my hair in braids and pre pood with Keracare Humecto. I let that sit about 20 minutes. Then I cleansed with Kerastase Curl ideal cleansing conditioner. I just blow dried my hair and it’s soooo soft. I’m about to straighten it

    If you live in Illinois, and you need to update your address ID you will need to take a new picture. I learned that the hard way. These chicken heads made me take a new photo. I wasn’t prepared :cry3: I look like a totally different person.

    Brands on IG back to shaming DIYers. DIY, store bought...who cares?? I don't get what's with all the controversy. No one's forcing anyone to do anything.

    My hair definitely doesn't like the 1st 3. I'm not sure about avocado oil. What does it do to your hair?

    It’s like a protein for me. Those ingredients must be last in the product if I’m leaving it in. I avoid them in my leave ins though for the most part.
    Funny if it has aloe vera extract it’s not too bad. @faithVA

    Saw a lady on YT using a mini denman to detangle. I think I want one.
