    Yall i used QP elasta mango butter leave in and sealed with dax grease (about 1 tbsps worth), waited a day then sprayed my hair up with tresemme heat tamer. Then blowdried with the Revlon blow dryer brush and for the first time in history I gave myself a salon level blowout. I am in awe.

    I keep forgetting I have some Chebe powder. I might make a mask out of it this weekend.

    Have to see what I can add to it, maybe some coconut milk powder and milk with a little of SM base conditioner.... Hmmm

    Evan Joseph is a jerk. I asked him about Deva products and he was so nasty to me. I unsubscribed from his IG. He is more concerned with his coins than using quality products on his clients. His response held me back from making appts with my colorist. I’m stuck in a holding pattern.

    I really should’ve washed my hair today. Instead I spent the day in bed. I’ll get around to it Monday

    I massaged my scalp with peppermint oil and the ends with coconut oil. I’ll shampoo it in the morning

    He does. I've noticed they'll use it more on type 2 hair though. They seem to use AG, Briogeo and NYC Curls on Type 3 and 4 hair. Random observation.

    I'm curious what he said too.

    For the ladies that have extra-large satin bonnets, where did you get yours? I need an extra-large one so that my twist outs and wash and gos last longer. I was looking on etsy and amazon. If you could provide an exact link to it, that would be even better.

    I shampood with Ion Keratin shampoo mixed with garnier sleek shot then deep conditioned under the dryer with Keracare Humecto. Next I added Chi silk infusion and blow dried on high. It’s time to straighten and trim. Today is a beautifying day :gorgeous:

    I don't use the big bonnets but I use these large scarves that I tie on either without tucking the tail or just loosely tucking the tail after it's tied on. Works like a big bonnet only it's more adjustable for my hair style. HTH! :)

    What I love about Alikay's Black shampoo is that is leaves my cuticle so smooth and my hair and scalp clean.... You can't beat that.

    When I use Mo's shampoo, my hair feels rough.......

    Plan on taking my hair care seriously this year. I stopped caring about 3 years ago. But I’m back on. My last relaxer was mid-June and I took down my sew in today and I have 3.5 inches of new growth which means I’m getting 0.5 inches a month :clap:. This is exciting for me as a slow grower (0.3in/month). Idk what I did? But since June I’ve been in sew ins and braids but that should effect retention not growth???? I’m planning to relax next week with my Mizani Butter blends that I had to get from NYC (got two giant tubs).
    Plan for this year-
    Cornrow my hair and wear a wig
    Oil my scalp daily with my mix (wild growth, castor, mane choice oil, olive oil, peppermint oil, been oil, hibiscus oil)
    Wash my hair once a month. Sounds gross but I think it helped with my last sew in to avoid manipulation me matting
    Take my vitamins
    Keep drinking water
    Hard protein treatment and deep condition once a month
    Aloe Vera/scurl spritz daily
    Vibrating scalp massager daily

    hoping to get past my bra strap length plateau and finally make it waist length

    It’s a weird length. I’m debating the same thing. Short hair is so sexy to me now.
