What’s up my Gorgeous ladies!!!!
I apologize for just ghosting y’all for some months. I made it through another semester! Had to put my haircare on cruise control, and just keep the basics (shampoo and conditioner. Literally just that.) I was super busy with life and whatnot, but we made it sis!!
December is coming to an end, and I’m legit excited to be hosting the 2020 Shea Growth Thread!
I’m super thankful for @Chicoro, for giving me an opportunity to, and I’m excited to be doing this again with All of You lovely ladies!!
Since I have ample amounts of free time for the rest of this year, I’ll be all up and through here as per usual. You ladies are amazing as always, and I hope I can be of any and all assistance to you guys, and continue in all the Shea Unicorn Glory
Awesome sauceeeeee!! And greatttt cause I just trimmed my hair from BCL to Hip Length and I don't think I'll be getting much far past HL without queen Shea! And congrats on making it through the semester! That was me during my pregnancy, hair care was on cruise control lol. Co-Wash, SCURL and Doogro Oil, Poo & Con once a month. Strictly basic. Not even SB butter touched my head in a whole YEAR.
I would like to formally bid everyone in and looking at this Shea butter thread, "Adieu!" Participating in these last two Shea butter challenges in 2018 and now 2019, has been life changing for me and for my hair. I have learned soooo much more about hair and about Queen Shea.
You all have been the GREATEST Teachers and the most Supportive Hairleaders (like cheerleaders) I've ever experienced. Queen Shea has messed up my plumbing and pipes in my apartment, but you can't get something for nothing, right?
Shea butter has transformed my hair and given me hair length and hair quality (called to my attention by @VictoriousBrownFlower ) that until now, was unprecedented.
I've gone from a Shea butter Hater to a Shea butter Fiend. I walk around with a greasy neck and a nutty, earthy Shea butter scent, with pride and pleasure.
- My braids are caked with the butter for hours at a time.
- I leave greasy fingerprints on paper files, on cupboards, on file cabinets and on other human beings.
- People reach for my braids, and come away greasy. Didn't nobody tell them to be putting their hands in my hair without asking permission first.
- I physically did the Shea slide by slipping in spilled, melted Shea. In the air I was eye to eye with my toes! I landed with a thud and a splash in that warm puddle of Shea.
- Horses think I'm a snack and lick me and my hair and chomp my hair.
- I haven't bought Shea butter in almost 2 years and literally have 5 kilograms or 10 pounds in my possession, right now. All of it gifted to me.
I'll be flying back to the US, on a plane not due to slipping in Shea, to see my family next week. I will be back at the beginning of January 2020. By then, I am sure you all will be in full swing with Shea butter Challenge 2020! Good luck to you all. If Queen Shea is only half as good to you as she was to me, your hair will be gifted and honored and feted by her as if you were royalty, as only a queen such as herself could do!
