    It's a trap. When you get tired of them, they're the most annoying thing to grow out.

    It sounded like a good idea to fast after my tea until 4pm but its 10 and Im staring at the screen dreaming of burgers.

    I am so sick of my hair. To keep from shaving it all off, I instead cornrowed it down to keep under a wig.

    I have never been so lonely in my life that I decide to date a convicted felon and then MOVE him in my house with my children. Moved in two weeks ago and now both your children are dead.

    Aww, BIG HUG!

    As a recovering scissor/clipper addict, I can tell you that this approach definitely works! I used to call it protecting my hair from myself. Lock it away for 3-4 weeks. Take it down wash and DC. Then lock it back away. GL to you!

    Hey yall!

    I haven't been keeping track of my growth any more. Once I reached HL I just stoped caring. Shame on me.

    I lost 33lbs. 15lbs more to go.

    Eta. I will do a length check this weekend to see if I passed HL. I don't think so though.

    I know the feeling. It gets better from here. If the vision of your success is strong enough in your mind, you can acheive it. Last Thanksgiving I was 200lbs, this Thanksgiving I was 165 with an hourglass. You can lose the weight and hair grows so keep your chin up.:hugxplode:

    I have to stop tucking my hair behind my ears. I do it because it gets in my face, but I'm getting breakouts behind my ears. Never had that happen before and it's not cool. I need to figure out a style that I can wear with the front pulled back.

    Took my 6 braids down & re-braided them. Again the top of my hair was pissing me off so I did another cut. I really just want my hair to have 1 curl pattern.

    I really need to put my hair away because I'm getting the urge to do something drastic. But I wont have time before mid-January.

    Hmm...this Design Essentials Defining Creme Gel is giving me a way more defined twist out than Camille Rose Aloe Whipped Butter Gel. Methinks I have a new staple......

    I put all Qhemet products in my hair last wash...... It is amazing how much our dry hair can absorb! My scalp feels great. My hair is soft...... I will use this combo for the next 2-3 washes to see what is what.

    I need to get my hair shaped ASAP. I’ve been wearing a wig going to two weeks and I’m ready to wear my hair out.

    I brought my slap cap with me today. The minute I get the car the wig is coming off and cap is going on.

    I’m going to buy some head wraps too, to wear on days I don’t feel like a wig.

    I should have taken a picture a few days ago when my skin was all patchy.


    Rice water for the win!

    I guess I did a good job on my hair, because my dude was impressed. He said it was beautiful and he never compliments me lol

    I've been slowly taking my hair out and de-tangling as I go but this process has made me realize some braiders are straight disrespectful to your hair requests. Some of these sections are so small it makes zero sense. Since I don't want to lose any hair i'm going to take my time and stretch this process out over the next 2-3 days.

    It's been a while. I guess because I got Sisterlocks in 2017. Now that I'm removing them, I'm back to my old ways.
