    This girl's hair :love:. Pretty sure this is what my hair would look like if I grow all of my heat damage out. Tbh though, I think my heat damage helps me retain length because it helps prevent single strand knots. My heat damage isn't crazy, slightly looser in the back, more loose in some front sections at the ends.

    When I cut off all my previous heat damage a while ago the ssk were out of control. When I get to my WL goal I want to flat iron once a month or so at a reasonable temperature and I don't mind if it gives me a slight heat stretch, but her hair is so beautiful. So thick and full all the way to the ends. Makes me want to keep all of my texture, but those knots ugh.

    ....so, I read somewhere yesterday that we’re supposed to use leave-in conditioner AND a styler. If it’s not gel, I usually just use a leave-in. I feel like I am too old to just be finding this out But now I know why my hair is so dry except NOW I also now have a bunch of questions :look:

    I’m changing stylists. I saw someone on IG who is black uses a bunch of nice non Deva products and who doesn’t cut hair with gloves on.

    I was annoyed when I saw that.

    I need more kinky curly knot today but Target is out (even online) and the prices on amazon are ridiculous. Is there a shortage or something?

    I guess Sybil is getting back into the groove of things. I was attempting to twist my hair because it’s officially at awkward length #1
    The twist are too short, but it’s too long for anything else smh :laugh:

    also, the fuzzy straight pieces are back. I swear someone copied and pasted pieces of my hair texture from whatever was available at the time :lachen:

    Ok, I might be overthinking... it’s actually highly likely I’m overthinking. These were the first things I wondered:
    But how do you know what leave-in will work with which styler? (is it just hit or miss?)
    Does hair porosity matter for stylers?
    How do people who use both leave-in & styler avoid build-up? Especially if you do a mid-week refresh.

    Those are very valid questions. I think it is a matter of trial and error. Hair porosity could be a factor. Some people may do a mid week rinse, or just push on through to the next wash day.

    Nothing. I didn't realize the situation was already being discussed in the Vendor's forum, until you called it to my attention, so I had the mods delete the thread.

    Has anyone tried the Vegamour serum. I know I don't need it or probably even want it but I've been bombarded with ads.

    I have to get back into doing my hair. I always suffer to most setbacks when I just leave my hair alone.

    Maybe you can try Sally Beauty's? I just checked the website and they have it at stock for $11.99.

    I might need to buy an extra bottle myself just in case they are having a shortage :look:

    I worked on the patio last night and went from silky to thick/frizzy. I’m definitely washing my hair tomorrow

    to see if a styler works with a leave in put a little of each on the back of ur hand and emulsify.... if it comes out clear good... if it comes out clumpy its a no go...

    Who knew that quarantine, PuffCuffs, and Photogenic would be game-changers in my hair retention?

    So on twitter this woman showed a photo of her hair close to her scalp and asked, "Do I have 4C hair?" I don' t know, but it rubbed me the wrong way. If you know enough to say "4c" then you should know that the photo she showed (which was curly) was NOT 4c hair.
    I asked if she was white, because that's the only way I can see someone getting that so wrong. So then she whined about me being rude and her not growing up with blacks and something about being haunted or troubled her whole life by her hair.

    I just got the feeling that she was, in a strange way, fishing for compliments for having superior hair. Just rubbed me the wrong way. I wish now I'd just said, "Yes."

    I prepped my hair last night so I could wash today. I even massaged my scalp with growth oil and I don’t like the smell. That will be my motivation to wash lol

    @Bette Davis Eyes I use the Photogenic on dry hair to smooth my hair up into a high pony/puff and secure it with the PuffCuff. My hair stays neat for a few days just sleeping on a silk or satin pillow case. In between, I just add a bit more Photogenic (maybe a spritz or two of a liquid, but not necessary) to refresh the look if I'm going out. I do this until my wash day on the weekend. I noticed that my pony.puff gets fuller and thicker each day too. I LOVE it!

    I found a new stylist to cut my hair. She is black, uses great products and won’t cut my hair with gloves.

    usps is always making me go to the post office to pick up my boxes and lying about there wasnt anywhere to leave the box.

    I pay for shipping and handling to my house, not for me to stand in line to pick up a box.


    I cant wait to move. Now after work today ,lets figure out this blasted long pickney line.
