I'm back on the board after months of being away. My hair is doing okay despite the long break from LHCF. I joined Black Girl Curls for a couple months this summer. Just long enough to get the gist of their philosophy. A lot of what they discuss were thing I already do/learned, so for the most part they just confirmed why some practices worked for me vs the ones that didnt. I'm not a WnG girl yet, since my hair is too long and needs shaping before I'm comfortable enough to where it loose. Once I feel comfortable enough, I'll go to a salon to get my hair shaped. Until then, I'll continue wearing quick updos and braided ponytails.
