Random Hair Thoughts/Thinking out loud

I'm overdue for some much needed maintenance. I love doing my own hair but it take sooooo long to do. I'm thinking about going to the shop but sometimes I feel like my scalp doesn't feel as clean as I would like. Am I the only one who feels like your scalp isn't really clean unless you do your own shampooing?
I haven't had someone shampoo my hair in years. I miss it lol.

I dont know how folks set their hair at night. Even if i pineapple my hair gets stretched and if its too loose, then it gets compact.
I sweat in my sleep a lot so if I want my hair to look like it did the previous day, I need to either braid it or twist it at night.


I slept with just a bonnet on and woke up looking like someones aunt with my hair pushed above my eyebrows in a bouffant.
Maybe a bunch of little pineapples? My hair isn't long enough for one big one so I do like 5 smaller ones and I don't wrap the satin scrunchie around. I just put it on if that makes sense.

I can usually shake and then fluff a little to get it looking good again.

My hair got messed up yesterday from wearing a helmet for paintballing. I was prepared for the most part though. I had a shower cap amongst other things, but it was the lack of my silk headwrap that did me in. I am truly disappointed because I've only been in these salon appt twists for less than 3 weeks. I'm truly miffed ☹

I JUST used The Doux Mousse Def! This was probably my fifth or sixth time using it. I know the first time was a big hit but it may have been drying one or more of those other times. Y’all just reminded me to really pay attention to how my hair feels this time because I’m not totally sure about it. Thanks!

I’ve only used it on top of a gel, so I can’t say how it is alone, but I adore it! Quick drying and quite defining.

The doux owner always projects this air of superiority when talking to her audience. Its annoying.

While I love the products and the fact that shes black owned and growing her brand, that tone is a turn off.

One time customers were explaining how they have to seal their hair in depending on where they live and she just blatantly told them, they are wrong and using inferior products ,etc. She later deleted the post but it was just wow. We spoke in DMs about the conversation and she had this long explanation about science and xyz. I just dont think she realizes/understands there are some people that cant use glycerin the in colder weather.

Her big poppa gel I could never use in NJ in the fall/winter, where some women have no problem using glycerin products and MAY seal them in. That works for them.

It’s interesting because some stylists really have a philosophy that hair doesn’t have to be as complicated or as many steps as a lot of people are doing. And that’s fine. For the last month I’ve been shampooing, conditioning, and styling in a wash and go with no extra steps or moisturizer and it’s been working okay. But daily cowashing worked for me too. And deep conditioning overnight worked too. And cassia treatments worked too. So I don’t buy that simple is the best regimen.

My only comment is that if you’re a stylist with a product line and you really just believe in cleansing, conditioning and styling, her product line has wayyyyy too many products. And she’s creating them and selling them because she knows people will use them. So she shouldn’t have a high and mighty attitude. She’s part of the “problem” if she thinks there is one.

At one point after picking up the girl, Martinez-Romero brought her to a Burger King and bought her a 10-piece order of spicy chicken nuggets and a soda, which she relayed to police after she was located, the report said

Investigators went to locations in Providence and Cranston and sifted through surveillance video until they spotted the suspect vehicle in the drive-thru at the Burger King at 966 Park Ave. in Cranston. The manager found the corresponding food order, according to the report, which gave detectives a debit card number.

Warrant in hand, police went to a bank on Westminster Street in Providence where they linked the card number to a name and address.

Martinez-Romero was then arrested at an establishment on Manton Avenue in Providence. The police report states that he is married and was holding a newborn baby at the time of his arrest
These have got to be some of the dumbest criminals.

I was only aware of the foam and the Big Poppa gel. I just went on their site and I was amazed at how many things they sell. :-0
