    I could definitely benefit by #1. If I was new to trying to take care of my hair I'd be so overwhelmed with what's out now, even within the same brand. One brand now has 532 things. Where would a person even start?

    Rambling but I wonder if that is a major pain point for my friends who are natural but rarely wear their hair out.

    I’m having a hard time figuring out how often to use my protein DC (Briogeo don’t despair repair). If I use it too often my hair gets stiff, but if I go too long without it my hair gets frizzy really easily. It’s such a tough balancing act. Or maybe it’s time to clarify. My hair is definitely trying to tell me something, but I don’t understand her. :-(

    I’s tired :crybaby:
    I hate when the time changes.
    I took my hair down in anticipation of washing my hair a couple of days ago and it just hasn’t happened.

    I hate the time change too. It’s amazing how much one hour can throw everything off.

    New tip from my cousin’s Deva stylist. Use the Deva hairspray on wet hair for extrahold. I’m gonna try it! I have had that hairspray for a while.

    Since I didn’t know if my hair needed protein or clarifying, I decided to clarify this morning. If she still isn’t happy I’ll do protein next wash.

    I was tempted to do both, but I want to try and learn what she’s saying and figure out the difference between needing protein and needing better cleaning.

    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.
