    I think about going natural and have lingering guilt after not atleast trying it after so many longterm stretches. But then I get that touch up and honey that all goes down the drain :look: My hair looks fabulous :reddancer: Its so thick and healthy :love:


    SN: I have some mentions I cant get to. This raggedy website :rolleyes: Im not ignoring anyone!

    Yay!!! Found a natural whose regimen is similar to mine! She mostly does wash and go's like me, which is awesome. I think I'm just going to stick to wash and go's, because when I try to do other stuff if it's a fail. I'm putting myself on a goal to not blow dry or flat iron my iron for at least three months and then do a length check. I'm excited about my hair again!

    I've been using Komaza Care products almost exclusively for this past week and my hair feels and looks fabulous. Tangles have been greatly reduced. My plan is to use Komaza Care for 75%+ of my hair care for the next three months and then reaches ( unless I run into some issue, of course).

    I'm starting to realize that I'll never have the perfect head of hair...
    I was reading my hair journal from 3 years ago and reflected on all the issues I had at the time.
    I overcame them - then I had other issues - overcame those ... etc
    Now, I have a new set of issues.
    My hair overall is MUCH longer now (full Shoulder length grazing APL) and I am pleased with my length.
    However, for all the hiding hair; protective styling etc.. it hasn't panned out to "perfect hair" like I planned.

    I've finally turned the corner because I finally know enough about my hair to enjoy it as-is. I may never have the perfect hair that I imagined but the hair I do have is just fine.

    My left side is prone to breakage and can get eaten off easily. My edges are whimpy and my hair is thin. These are the facts..lol but I can make the best of it.

    Somewhere lovin’ on my new grandson .
    Got up, walked to the store, came back home, researched some product formulations, then made conditioner, gel, a cream styler, a hair butter, & a detangling leave-in. Then I deep cleaned my kitchen, did a crapload of dishes in the process, and cooked dinner. And I think I'm about to shower and play in these hair products I just made from scratch. This the most active I've been on a Saturday in a long time. And I like it

    I just found an old photo from 2008 of my hair routine at the time. It contains five products (one poo, one rinse out conditioner, an oil, and two moisturizer-one water based and one butter). This led me to go under my bathroom sink and count how many products I have.

    2 shampoos
    1 sample shampoo bottle
    2 bottles of conditioner
    1 sample conditioner bottle
    3 sample packets of conditioner
    1 box of amla powder
    3 jars of moisturizer
    1 sample bottle of moisturizer
    1 bottle of curl activator
    1 jar of curl gel activator
    1 bottle of leave-in conditioner spray
    1 bottle of demi activating lotion
    1 tube of demi hair dye
    1 bottle of spray oil
    1 bottle of oil
    1 jar of pressing oil
    1 jar of hair grease

    :look:

    Okay this may be a silly question. Is Joico moisture recovery balm the sam as joico moisture recovery conditioner? I only saw conditioner at the store so I wasn't sure if I should get it....

    In my opinion the recovery balm is more of a deeeeep conditioner; the conditioner itself behaved like a daily/ rinse out conditioner on my hair. I prefer the balm..

    I love using a moisturizer that also has some hold to it.

    This is my dream/ideal hair length straight and curly. How long would it take for me to get to this length do you think? My last relaxer was December 26 I think.

    Now that I see how fun color is (and I'm single) I really feel detached from longer hair goals. It's just not worth the extra time to me.

    I used that protein and I was amazed. I then ordered a box of every sample size. after trying those for a few days I ordered more protein conditioner and several full sized products. 3 orders in 2 weeks and my hair is amazing. I am going to follow your lead and use almost all KC and see what happens.

    Can you share your regimen?

    I need to keep a hair journal. Can't remember when I moisturized my hair last. I've been keeping it tucked away under this wig and now I'm losing track of what I'm doing and when. My hair is soft and moisturized but I'm trying to minimize manipulation so I don't want to take it down if I just did it a few days ago. My memory sucks smh. School is ruining my brain

    I want to deep condition my hair so bad, but I don't know if it will cause reversion? Maybe I should call the company?

    First time using Jamaican Black Castor Oil and I used it in the form of JBC Leave-in from Shea Moisture. My scalp feels so good with it, I'm considering getting straight JBC and mixing stuff myself. And I found this deal online with free shipping for anybody interested. Check the "sale items" as well because they have 16 oz. of regular castor oil for $4.49 and many other items:

    Is is wrong to offer somebody hair products when they didn't ask? Seems like it would be rude. The girl in class that I saw with that awesome natural hair wig that I thought was real seems to be transitioning/big chopping. Her hair was just neck length now today it's way shorter with what looks like relaxed edges I guess then a fro in the back. Like that was her leave out she had for sew ins. I have a ton of products that don't work. Maybe I'll try to start a hair convo with her....
