    That coffee Shea butter mix has left the skin on my legs so buttery and bright! I wore a little short dress that came to mid-thigh. One of the burns on my legs is visible, but it didn't even matter.

    Don’t think I’ve had much retention since April. Not the fault of Queen Shea, but I have been adjusting my regimen a few times since then.

    The hair on the right looks thicker and fuller and has a deeper sheen. It looks more moist.

    Chicoro is right. The hair on the right looks healthier.

    Lol, the pic on the right is the one from April, left was this morning. April pic was 1st day hair & doesn’t have a lot of product in it, today is three days old with wrapping at night with Shea butter, so it’s weighed down, not as fluffy. It does look a bit shorter to me, but my hair is thin, just sometimes gives the allusion of thickness depending on the products used. Took another pic in better lighting, but still looks thin n flat. Heck I’ve lost about another 21lbs since April, so I myself look thin and flat compared to then.

    Welp, I can't win them all!

    But YOU CERTAINLY are winning! That body is shrinking to super sexiness. Look at you! Another 21 pounds since April. Talk about inspiration!

    Regarding your hair, in the picture on the right from April, you have your head leaning back slightly. You can see your middle part. In the one today, the part is not visible. That might be why it looks longer. I don't think your hair is shorter today.

    I pre-shampooed with my Deep Moisture Treatment (Aloe Vera, Essential oils, Glycerin and Oil). The essential oils help to really cleanse my scalp.

    Tonight I used Cantu's Shea Butter Natural Deep Treatment Mask. That's a lot of words for a product. Anyway, I used 1/4 the jar on my head. I added a big ol' glob of of my Shea butter mix to it along with some oils and some honey.


    Here is the product:

    [​IMG]

    My hair felt DIFFERENT, in a good way. This stuff coated my hair in a way that felt fortified. I've used this product before but it's a bit pricey for me. I bought the last two jars on the shelf. I splurged on my hair on Saturday! I have figured out how to get four (4) uses out of the jar.

    My hair came out feeling and smelling great!

    @MyAngelEyez~C~U ,
    You and a couple of other ladies put Keto on my radar. Since July 7th, I too have been doing some form of Keto along with Intermittent Fasting. Thus far, I have lost 10 pounds in the month of July. I have 10 more pounds to go. I'm trying to get sexy like you, too!

    Shea Sexy from Head to Heel!

    That’s awesome! I think intermittent fasting along with any type of low carb duet does the trick with weight loss. Good luck as you lose your next 10lbs!

    The herd is on hiatus? Where are those Shea made hair unicorns at? Are we done? Are we on cruise control on the road to super long hair? Have we left the building and moved onto something else?

    I'm in maintenance mode myself.

    We’re definitely not done! I’m in maintenance mode. I made such a large amount of my Shea butter concoction that I have not had the need to make anymore mixes.
    My hair is currently in the thickening phase, so my hair feet’s have not moved past APL.
    I will post pics this weekend.

    Not sure how long I'll keep these twists in but they could be with me for a while.

    I have lost some of my progress, due to my stylist trimming my ends. I think I’m an inch shy of APL. I’m don’t think my longest layer will reach BSL this year, but I’m okay with this. My hair is very healthy for being a fine texture and color-treated.

    Don’t mind the frizzing. I kept touching my hair and it’s humid.
    This will be my last silk press for the year (so I say now). I am going to hide my hair under a weave for the fall.

    Still holding steady with my Shea Butter. I’ve also been putting it in my coffee in the morning. Just a little cube worth. I like that subtle nutty flavor. May just be a placebo effect but my periods have been a lot less rough. I’m always looking for any type of fatty acid that aids in easing PMS symptoms. So far Shea Butter In small doses might just be helping. I’ve only been putting it in my coffee for a month now so we will see.


    ********************
    As far as my hair goes, I’ve been pre-pooing with Shea Butter and Almond Oil. Hair is super fluffy and lightweight.

    I’m living for my thickness that is slowly coming down. Here’s last weeks picture I took. Thanks to my new growth as well with all the added volume. My left side is doing well too. Since I’ve been parting my hair in just two sections, going straight across. Lot less hair fall I’m noticing as well.

    I’ve been using the Melanin Twist Cream (which has Shea Butter as #2 ingredient) and my HBCO, and I think that’s the only reason why my hair has been holding on. I’ve been neglecting my poor hair in lieu of other things going on in my personal life.

    Wow! I can see the fullness coming through! Congratulations ! It's getting thicker on the right side and filling in from right to left and left to right. Keep on doing what you are doing. It is such a great feeling to see one's efforts paying off. Bravo! Great job @PlanetCybertron !

    565CF859-84C8-4ABA-B23A-33DDC6FDF30F.jpeg I made conditioner yesterday with fenugreek oil, saw palmetto/horsetail/burdock root oil, Shea butter, BTMS-50 and water with a tiny bit of ACV to get the pH in range, and preservative. I added some slippery elm, marshmallow root, and Irish moss to it as well...side affect of having too many ingredients I wanna try, lol. It feels really slippery between my fingers so I hope it has some nice slip. Gonna try it out later today. I’m back on wash n go mode after stretching my hair all summer. I think my hair missed being in this state. I’m loving Camille Rose Curl Maker (I found a dude selling bottles of it out of his trunk for $5 each, lol. You know I jump on that!). It just makes my curls perfect and defined without the hard caste. Anyway, I’ll update after I use this conditioner....keep me n my hair in prayer, lol.

    I got a deep condition with heat and a dollop of Shea butter coming up. I'm itching to blow-dry, straighten and trim my hair. I'm just going to leave it alone, though. I'm continuing to do Shea-ing based on faith. My hair seems like it's the same length it's always been.

    I know better than to succumb to that lie. Shea -on, that's what I'm going to do.

    I've been sick since the 2nd but my hair has been shea'd up twice so it's hanging in there.
