    Well one thing about being in the house....I just did the best set of twists!

    Probably because I wasn't rushing and took time to really part my hair.

    I have been in need of a haircut for a while. I moved to a new state in the summer and have been really struggling to find someone to cut my hair. Some of the problems I have been having is a) they aren't taking new client, b) they have no time on there schedule for when I am available and c) they don't do cuts on natural hair (wtf). Well today I had enough. I watched some YouTube and went to sally's to by some shears. I cut my hair myself and I love it. My curls are springy again and my hair is off my neck. No complaints here.

    Man, I sure picked the wrong time cut my hair. All I can do now is experiment on how to brush my hair :perplexed: :laugh:

    I dusted about 1/4 inch off my ends all over. It feels so good the comb my hair from root to tip with no snags. It actually relaxing to me whenever I cut my hair. My goal this year is to have my hair the same thickness from root to tip and I am well on my way.

    I’m looking forward to styling my hair today. I kinda wanna cut it. This quarantine has me being all rebellious. I painted my nails a bold color (work required nude polish.) I’m thinking about re piercing my nose...

    I’ll do a keratin treatment today and search for cuts online. Once I find an easy/cute one I’ll do it

    Seems my hair growth is picking up to 0.5 a month. I’m usually a slow grower. It must be my hair oil that I made

    I prepood with the Ion Pigments Titanium color conditioner for a couple hours. Hopped in the shower, shampood with Chi Rose hip color shampoo and put some Humecto in while I showered. I rinsed, detangled and blow dried with minimal effort or shedding. I may have to add a prepoo every week.

    The color looks like a darker version of what I already had (ombré) I guess it’ll be better once the color starts fading . Now it looks like a dark purple almost

    The shut-in has been good for my hair. Plenty of time to deep conditioning and no need for a wig!

    That cut did my twists good. I cut most of the color out so my twists are mostly the same size from beginning to end. Love it. No more sickly looking twists!

    Do people still use combs? Let me know if you are still using a comb. I only use a comb to part my hair these days. I usually wear a wasn go and I finger comb so that my curls and kinks clump together. Yesterday when I was twisting my hair I just finger detangled when necessary. It was easy breezy.

    I use a seamless comb to detangle after I put my deep conditioner in. Don't use it again until next wash day.
