    Wash day was really quick yesterday. I used the Chi Rose hip color protecting shampoo and I conditioned in the shower with Giovanni smoothing conditioner. My hair is smooth as phuck. Usually after being outside for about an hour it’ll puff/frizz, but nothing.

    Lemme find out that deep conditioning my hair makes it frizzy. This might be a game changer. A 1 hour wash day with no frizz

    I washed my hair 2 days ago and after deep conditioning it, I didn’t add any products besides Aphoghee Green Tea Keratin Spray because I had planned on straightening it. I’m touching my hair now trying to figure out how is it so soft. Then I check the weather and the humidity is at 75% :laugh:

    I go, “oh that’s why my hair is so soft :scratchchin: :laugh:

    So my man asked me to make him some “beard oil.” I used evoo with a few drops of each: peppermint oil, lavender and rosemary. It smells delish. I had enough to make me an 8oz bottle also. I’ll massage my scalp with it a few times a week.

    So I've been drying my twists underneath a hair dryer for my twist outs. I am noticing less tangling compared to when I let my twists air dry.

    Is this further confirmation that what worked for me when I was relaxed still works for me as a natural?

    Okay, I just completed the setup of my Revair hair dryer and it looks and sounds similar to a vacuum cleaner ( the long hose and big base).:eek:

    Then after reading the do's and don'ts, I see that one of the don'ts is to not use the Revair to vacuum.:lachen:Oh MY!!!

    Oh boy (sigh).....

    I don't think I've made any progress this year and YOU WANNA KNOW WHY? Trimming, trimming and more UNNECESSARY trimming.
    So I'm right above hip length.

    :cry3:&:lachen: At the same time.

    I will NOT trim this year.

    Trim + Trim = Cut.

    Cut + growth = same length.

    No cutting + growth = goals made:wallbash:

    @ self: Stop cutting your hair!!! :wacky:

    Eta: And the funny part is that, a couple of months ago while detangling I asked myself "why does my hair seem shorter than before?" That's because I trimmed four or five times!!!! *slaps self*

    Eta: and another thing.....STAY AWAY FROM TRIMMING VIDEOS! They will have you thinking you need to trim when you ABSOLUTELY do not. Just like those mukbangs make you want to eat when you ABSOLUTELY don't need to.

    Smh. I'm tryna be small in shape with long hair not fat and greedy with shorter hair!

    I tried the botox for hair treatments and like them. Also, I finally used the Maria Escandalosa no-formaldehyde with the green top and it truly has no derivatives. I think they use lactic acid and this time, my hair is bone straight, which is not what I was aiming for. :look: I wanted looser hair and more definition.

    Hair was so dry! I colored my hair with a demi permanent color less than two months ago.

    Why is it that my DH had to remind me to do a hot oil treatment to remedy the problem?

    Just when I think he isn't/wasn't listening, he pulls this on me.:2inlove:

    Thanks for the reminder Bae, but more importantly, thanks for listening. My hair feels great!

    Lol at that being listed as a don't.

    I washed yesterday and pulled out my revair. I forgot how loud and bulky it is.

    ... but the results are totally worth it.

    I used it on low tension 6.
    2 minutes on each section.

    It took me an hour because I havent used it since last Summer and had to relearn how to use it.

    I'm about to start using the revair weekly after my wash, steam and leave ins.

    I’m sick y’all. Again. For the second time and it’s not even March yet. :cry3:I’m probably not gonna touch my head for a while. I’m trying to get enough energy to do some ratchet braids. I kept it really simple because I’m pretty tired and I didn’t feel like looking for stuff. I’m using TGIN Green Tea Leave in and Blue Magic Castor Oil grease. I made it to my ear, but the top isn’t done yet. Hopefully it’ll be done by tomorrow and then I can just chill under a head wrap or something until I feel better.

    Off topic: (chest pains) Stress at work.
    I have so much responsibility at work that it LITTERALLY hurts me. Today I left early. I even lost my voice yesterday because my throat tightened up, and I had to run to the bathroom to cry. I'll never LET THEM SEE me stress, but the four walls of that bathroom will. I CAN'T DO EVERYTHING :cry3::cry3::cry3:.

    I gave this to the Lord. He is my helper.

    Side note: stress mucks up hair growth. Can't let that happen.

    (This is a very short version of my work life, I handle a lot of red tape.)

    If I make it one more week, I've gone all of February with no products purchased.

    The end of the month is when I usually slip up.

    I want to wash my hair. I might do it in braids for the first time ever. Hopefully it gets just as clean & conditioned as usual.

    Times like this make me miss my locs & seriously consider doing them again. Sister locs would be a good middle ground....

    If anyone is looking for a revair the site is having a $299 sale.

    This just popped up on my IG.
    Not sure if this is a standard sale just sharing :)

    I love my Revair

    Thanks. I knew it would go down in price after a while. I'll wait until it goes down to $199.00.
