Random Hair Thoughts/Thinking out loud

What ever dye they used tore my hair up. Never again unless I did it myself. But to be totally honest my slight neglect didn't help either. Poor hair. Plus I have a not so shabby amount of new growth. Also not helping my case lol.

COVID. (see my last 2 posts in this thread. Omicron is what I got for my night out. DS#2 & DH have also caught it. I'm so disgusted with myself. Been safe since March 2020 and Covid caught me slipping. Please pray for me & my family. I also exposed my Mom & Dad. Daddy has had heart issues + been through a round of Covid earlier this year. The guilt is overwhelming.

I’m sorry to hear that. I think omicron is unavoidable unless you stay home all the time. I hope you all have mild cases.

I pray a prayer of recovery and peace from guilt. I understand the guilt though. My mom is a congestive heart failure patient with a LVAD heart pump. In 2019, I took the flu shot for the first time in 20 years because I couldn't bear it if I exposed her or my dad especially since I'm her sole caregiver. Living through this pandemic has been overwhelmingly stressful. We have had 4 exposure scares and I still blame myself for allowing my brother in my home since he works outside the house and his wife and kids go freely as if Covid doesn't exist. They all have Covid now. Our last scare was Christmas day, I still regret not stopping my brother at the door when he came to my parents house with no mask. I'm sorry, I guess I needed to tell someone who would understand. My point was I will remember you and your family in prayer and you are not alone.

Wondering should I buy the revair for the third time just to use on the little one. If I could stretch his hair out and braid it up with minimal fuss it would be great. I like the concept of the revair it was just too heavy for me to hold up but if im
Sitting down it might not be a problem

im interested in the revlon brush but I’d still have to brush through his strands and that’s where the problem lies.

As I was tying up my hair night before last I noticed a spot that’s broken off 1 inch in the back of my crown. The area is pretty big. I’m devastated. I told my bf and he’s all like “it’s just hair. It grows.”

He doesn’t get it. I’m not sure if the breakage is a result of my keratin treatment from July or the recent trauma/stress. I lost my dad a few months ago. I’m just really disappointed…

It's probably the keratin. Looking back at old pictures I realized I could not retain length with it in my hair.

Sorry for your loss.

Am I the only one who gets the urge to shave their head every time they find split ends. I guess I’ll never be split end free. I’m taking it very personally.
No, you're not. That's exactly what I did, and then I kept it at 1/2 inch for almost a year. Growing it out now, but it's not something I would ever do again. :lol: That struggle is real.

Also, I remember seeing your hair pic in another thread, and it is gorgeous! Split ends where? Plus, remember this (in my unpopular opinion): hair will alway split. Always. You're always going to find some. Trimming (and protective styles, treatments, etc) just tries to stay ahead of the inevitable.

I'm waffling between disliking and loving my hair. Realizing I don't love the dark brown with the blonde as much as I initially thought I would and while I do think I should've just bleached my entire head, I'm wondering if I'd still be nit-picking it. All this to say I love it today.

I feel the same way about this reddish color i have in this head. I'm so tempted to dye my hair black, but that would just be adding insult to injury. I just gotta suck it up buttercup lmao

I don't like how my hair looks right now. It doesn't have a pleasant shape to it which I hope will get better as it continues to grow. I basically want all of my hair to touch my shoulders when in a braid out or twist out. Right now only the back touches my shoulders in that state while the hair in the front is about chin length. It looks like I have a really strange hair cut. :perplexed:

I put the front half in a top bun and it looks much better. :) I think I will try more bun hair styles and goddess braids for the few more days that my hair is out before it gets braided up next week.

Hey beauties. I’m currently doing a 30 minute prepoo/dc on dry hair with morrocan oil mask and olive oil. I’ll shampoo with Keratin Complex smoothing shampoo and do a final rinse with Kerastase resistance conditioner. I know it’ll be so pretty after all this loving, but my new wig is here! It’s a lace bob from u nice hair. It was my first time ordering with them. Great wig and it came with several free gifts including some caterpillar lashes that I will NOT wear lol.
