This is my last year participating in this challenge so I want to say farewell and all the best to everyone moving on with it in 2020.

My membership on the board expires in February and it is not likely that I will be renewing it this time around. I had an awesome time here and I have made many wonderful friends, so much so that you all feel like family to me. I love you all - MUAH :love3:

My focus moving forward will be on the Lord God Almighty and cleaning up my spiritual house. I hope the best for all of you and pray that since this is a Christian based forum, all here would seek Him diligently and intimately while He may be found.

I will be around until my membership expires in February though.

Love always:iloveyou:,

NNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! I feel like we just met. :cry:
Anyways, since we're in the same spot, we'll just have to take our discussions offline. See you on the flip side.

I know it’s working if my hair is soft, moisturized and I retain length. The reason I’ve even stayed on my hair journey as long as I have is because of this board. YouTube came later. That’s also been why I’ve always been tweaking my hair regimen. I was like: “Ooohhh this person is raving about this product I’ve never heard of?! Let me add it to my list. Or I’m bored with my moisturizing let me try this new one to add excitement to my routine.” Now I know better. Having support is key.
Quoting my own post to remind myself to stick to what works and never deviate from it. A couple of months ago, I added oiling my scalp with the Curlyproverbz Ayurvedic growth oil and realize more than ever that my scalp cannot handle being oiled at all. It gave me a seborrheic dermatitis flare up. Thankfully no setbacks. Honestly I didn’t really believe my doctor when he diagnosed me with it back in February (I think). All I knew is I noticed that the skin around my hairline was getting much lighter. I looked it up and it’s what one of the S. Dermatitis flare ups look like. I still have my prescription so it’ll heal pretty quickly, at least from what I’ve read. I’ve learned the “stick to what works” lesson on a whole other level now. I’m posting this here hoping it helps someone

@caribeandiva take care of yourself. Your overall skin is really smooth. I know you have some issues with your hairline. Despite the hairline issues, the rest of your face is glowing and so smooth looking.

Question: Why did your write you are still learning from me? I am not sure I understand the reference in relation to your post. Can you clarify for me, please? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for the compliment. I am learning more and more why you are so adamant about not changing a thing about a regimen that is working for you. Keep everything exactly the same. That’s what I meant.

Okay, I see. Yes, at least get to a critical goal length you want and maintain that length for about 1 year. The one year will give your hair time to be nice and thick at that goal length. You may then want to consider to change something. You have more hair to gamble with at that point. And if you mess up, you will likely have some hair remaining at that goal length to go back and re-start the regimen that was working.
