    Off the top of my head and thinking of what I use it for (gathering various ref pics), I use imgur.
    I usually just keep the albums private and share the link to whoever I want instead of publishing it publicly to the imgur site

    I used Deva Decadance conditioner this morning when I washed my hair. I love the way my hair smells now.

    How long are folks keeping hair products? I'm doing the math on a few and I think it might be time to pitch them just based off having them so long (and using them so infrequently). Idk.

    I think I’m going to try to get in one more hair wash & blow out since it seems like Baby LavenderMint is planning to take his time. I’ve had the scissors itch too; I’m probably going to cut off these thin & splitting ends before I take down my twists. I’ll be in protective styles for a while anyway so any unevenness likely won’t matter.

    Don't laugh. I'm almost close to finishing the bottle of IC Fantasia heat protectant serum that I bought back in 2010. I've been using it once or twice a year since then. I bought a new bottle of it last year since it's so old but still using the old one. Still works. No heat damage. :look: :lachen:

    Lol. No judgement from me. I have a jar of QBATB. I know I haven't purchased it since I've lived in my condo. I've been in my condo since Spring 2014. It's still half full. I had a jar of some popular butter so long the scent disappeared.

    I think we have similarly 'aged' IC Fantasia serum:lachen:. I will rarely (if ever) throw a serum heat protector. I have a selection so IC isn't the first one I always reach for but I still use it. With all my old-school or tried and true products, if it still looks and smells right (and in some cases feels right), it's a keeper.

    I finger detangled this wash day, but my hair still broke off a lot. I could see the many little short pieces around the tub before they washed into the hair catcher with the shed hairs. I dont feel that its lacking moisture, but I'm going to try spritzing my ends with aloe vera juice daily to see if that helps.
    I'll be waist length by 2021! :bat:

    Its a term coined by a member years ago, she reached super long length by not trimming at all. She did have some rough and uneven ends, but her theory was that they protected the rest of her length.

    I agree with this. Always wanting fresh ends kills some your progress. Hair will never be perfectly even on its own. I think you should only trim cut when they are absolutely badly damaged or detrimentally uneven.

    I think it was Sylver2? Trying to find the thread...

    I just discovered Sally doesn’t sell the Mielle Mongongo Oil Deep Conditioner anymore. Now I gotta go back to the drawing board. :censored:

    Edit: Ammyzon sells it, but I don’t wanna depend on them.
