    Embrya No one believes I'm relaxed. Smh. I thought it was a pretty distinct look between the two types of hair. Obviously not.

    I'm so confused on the concept of bunning with a banana clip without using 1000 pins to secure it. I have those mini spin pins (which are great btw) but I still can't wrap my brain around making a neat bun with the clip. Maybe I just don't have enough hair yet.

    Tried something different with my hair... pretty sure I look like Fredrick Douglass. :wallbash: Thankfully I only work 6 hours today then this mess will be covered with a baseball cap while I run.

    Hilarity at my local BSS:grin: The owner didn't like the way the woman spoke to him and he told her the item she wanted to buy was no longer for sale:lachen: :lachen:

    Last night I prepped my hair for a nice overnight DC. I used an ORS pack and I decided to add some of my Joico Moisture Conditioner to bulk it up. I applied the product and thought it was weird that they wouldn't blend, but I just slapped it in my hair and went to sleep.

    Well imagine my HORROR when I woke up this morning to a matted mess! I accidentally added SHAMPOO to my DC :perplexed :lol:

    Thank God today is my day off, so I spent a few hours lounging with my actual DC in my hair.

    3-day old twists clipped up with a flexi 8. This was never intended to be a style but ended up this way from my 3-day detangling session. Went shopping for jeans and never received SO many compliments on my hair. Wow! :blush:

    I will be pushing my relaxer back to Sept 16, 2011 just so I can have a fresh relaxer for my 1 year later reveal. I hope things turn out well.

    I tried the old Elasta Qp conditioning shampoo. This BSS had the large ones on the shelf. I like it a lot I am going to purchase the last ones. I like it better than MIzani detangling shampoo, the mizani was extremelly hard to wash out and it is alot more expensive I did not need alot either

    My comb went through my 10 weeks post NG in the shower like a hot knife through butter.

    I am sitting here now with Africas best detangling conditioner letting my hair dry.

    As soon as I forget how long my hair is, my cheerleaders sit in amazement as I unfurl my bun. :)

    Purchased garlic-infused avocado oil from a vendor that lives in my apartment complex. The oil stinks to high heaven. It almost smells worse than amla oil. My hair better be knee length when I am done.

    Maybe the hair gods haven't blessed me with long tresses because they know i'd use my power for evil. I might break my neck with all the swanging i'd be doing if I had long hair. PS? Chile pleaz, I'd wear my hair down even to bed so I can feel it lay across my chest. Lol! Maybe they think given a few more months, I'll be more humble if given the gift of NG. Yea- that's it- the hair gods know what's best for me. ;)

    Just kidding- I'm ready for it now!

    newnyer - OT: I wish I could sing. I'd be sanging up a storm (southern slang) if I had a nice voice. God knew not to give me that voice because I'd be just running folk crazy. I'd break out in song on a whim and folk would be giving me the major side eye for that. :lol:
