    Washed with Dr. Bronners Liquid Castile Soap diluted with a lot of Shea Nut Oil, Glycerin, and Aloe Vera Juice. Deep conditioned with MANUKA HONEY & MAFURA OIL INTENSIVE HYDRATION MASQUE mixed with some whipped Shea Butter, coffee oil n a dash of tea tree oil. Detangled like a breeze and had significantly less shedding than I usually do. Rinsed and immediately added a small amount of Cantu moisturizing Curl activator cream to each section. After air drying a bit, sealed with whipped Shea, and braided into eight braids. Been several years since I tried a braid out, I’ll see how this experiment goes...

    Alright, so I tried the horizontal parting. Technically tonight was my first time doing it, well...first time in a while.

    I’m definitely not used to doing it this way, but it was easier to get my hair in a single braid in the back.

    I made another part just above my ears, and then braided that one too, so I had two braids laying on top of eachother, and then I flat twisted my bangs to the side since they are very well behaved and hardly tangle, braided the rest of the way down and wrapped them between my two braids in the back.

    So far it’s easy to sleep on. I used soft scrunchies so they wouldn’t hurt the back of my head.

    I like that hairstyle! I never thought to put a smaller braid in between parts like that. :)

    Tailbone length hair, "Call Me!"​


    I got a few more hairs at 26 inches. My hair is starting to thicken up at 26 inches. Some of them are at 26.5 inches. As a reminder, 28 inches against the back of ANY and EVERY Body is solidly at tailbone length! Come on 1.5 inches.


    Full, Tail Bone Length hair, listen to Prince and CALL MY NAME!
    I claim you, NOW.

    If I were to get my hair trimmed those little hairs would be cut :samurai:by the stylist. Thus, I'm leaving my hair to do its own thing and keeping the scissor shears at bay for a little while. I try to keep my ends greased and protected.

    Hey y'all. I've been in the kitchen.

    20190703_091254-2268x2114.jpg 20190703_091318-1407x2099.jpg

    I ordered the Shea Nilotica Butter from 3cayg and mixed it with sunflower oil, grapeseed oil, rice beans oil, Pina colada fragrance, and almond fragrance. I whipped it in my Kitchen Aid mixer for about 12 minutes. I'm.also steeping a coffee bean infusions. Thanks @ElevatedEnergy

    I made fermented black rice. That was a mistake. It left my hair hard and tangled. I went back to the drawing board. I tried again with plain white rice and left it covered on the patio. I think that my previous batches weren't fermenting because I keep it cool inside.

    My butter is so delightful!

    Massaged scalp with coffee infused oil, spritzed length with aloe Vera/water/glycerin/tea trea mix, and sealed with east and west African Shea whipped with coffee oil, Moringa oil infusion, and a sprinkle of ayurvedic herb mix. Hair and scalp both feel pretty nice. Gave away some of this Shea mix and hair spritz to a neighbor who’s struggling with her natural hair. Hope it helps, she was super happy to get it. :)

    Found a lil shop in town that sells organic herbs :yahoo:! I picked up some burdock root, marshmallow root, fenugreek, slippery elm bark, saw palmetto, horsetail, Rose Absolute n citric acid. Got my BTMS-50, potassium sorbate, sodium lactate, and some other stuff on the way. I’ve started infusing the saw palmetto and horsetail in safflower oil. Gonna play around with making a Shea-based deep conditioner and moisturizer that my hair and scalp will like, and hooking up my Shea whips a bit as well. :yep:

    Shea'd up the babies today. Ayurvedic shea blend on their whole head then plain raw shea to smooth the front of their hair (nice edge control alt). I think my next batch will be the same oils but w/o infusing it. I like the herbs but I hate having to figure out what to do with them after straining. Several things I could do of course but none that really fit with my normal regimen.

    Girl, I was the Mixtress Queen back in the Fall/Winter.

    But I have so much other stuff to use up that I am really trying to deal with.

    Thankfully, a lot of these handmade natural(s), have SB somewhere in their ingredients, so I still feel like I'm using SB in most of the things I am using.

    But Gurl mixing so much Fun. I still have quite a bit of SB left and probably will return back to mixing this Winter when it's all snowy, cold and boring.

    Do you or have you been using any Fragrance Oils in your Blends? I read your post where you added Tea Tree to one of your Creations.

    @IDareT'sHair, I have several, but the one I am partial to using these days is Butt Naked from Bulk Apothecary. It just a nice simple scent. That and for some reason I’m in love with Rose fragrance, lol. My husband says I smell like an old lady...whatever :handslap::look:.
