    I love phony pony’s when I can get them to act right :lachen:I have a straight one I’ve been using but sometimes it takes too much work so I bought a curly one yesterday. I try to baggy when I remember.

    1)How often do you remove it to moisturize?
    2) Do you baggy?

    1)How often do you remove it to moisturize? Daily

    2) Do you baggy? No I don't baggy. I do heavily moisturize and seal my hair on a regular basis though.

    I really want to try Blue Magic hair grease, since a lot of people seems to love it. But Natures Blessing is just perfect for my fine hair....Gonna buy it at Walmart so I can take it back if I don't like it :look::look:.

    I'm coloring my hair with Overtone this weekend.

    These grey hairs are so annoying and they're on my hairline and at the top of my head. I have a lot of dark hair so they really stand out.

    I hope Overtone does the job because I don't want to dye my hair, it dries out so bad from bleach and dye.

    Did someone say they were looking for Mizani Butter Blends Relaxer? It’s on Divatress website and they have it in Fine/color treated and Medium/Normal.

    Here trying to decide whether to apply my infused oil to my scalp, or put it into my curry.

    My Target's natural hair care section has been sucking a lot lately.

    Is it just the Target by me?

    It varies by the Target location here. One by work, wack. One by the mall by my house a little better. One further from me but where more black people live, great.

    No

    Mine reduced the amount of product lines that they carry. More than half of the brands are gone. Now it’s mostly filled with Cantu, Shea Moisture, some Mane Choice and a few Camille Rose products.

    Some brands have stopped being in Target because it's not profitable. One brand made a post about how being in Target doesn't always pan out like we think it would and shelf space is expensive.

    It was around this:

    When I'm shopping for products Target is not the first place I go. I buy hair products in Target because I happen to be in Target. But if I'm shopping for hair products, I'm going to Sally's or online. Maybe they just need to change where they are targeting people.

    I usually know what I want before I even hit the store. I'm checking stores for availability and I do that online first too.

    I would guess that shelf space in Target is more expensive than Sally's too. And Target carries waaayyy more brands. Natural, not natural, cheap, more expensive, well known, lesser known, everything in between. More competitive than being at Sally's I bet.

    I just had a thought:

    My scarf keeps slipping off my head (stocking cap is wet) and my head doesn’t always stay on the bed, I was thinking about getting a twin sized silk sheet, and folding it up by the head of the bed. That way if my scarf comes off, and my head doesn’t stay on the pillowcase at least my head will still be covered.

    Unless I end up at the opposite end of the bed :lachen:

    I do. I appreciated not having to wait for my products. I used to get my Oyin, Kbb, Jane Carter, tgin, Taliah Waajid, mop top, Camille Rose, mane choice etc.. from there.

    I bought two phony ponies last night from heat free hair. Nothing crazy it my length just a phony. I am so ready to slim down my hair looks and options.

    Overtone didn't really cover my grey hairs very well, except for the main one on my hairline. The longer ones in the middle are hidden, but it only gave them a slight tint. I guess it's a win, but now I need to figure out what to do about the greys. I am not embracing the aging process, I refuse.

    I like highlights, so I don't want to go jet black. I'm sad :-(

    I put kalonji oil on my scalp yesterday. Someone at work said I smell like chicken noodle soup.
