    I predict with the cooler temperatures coming up, Shea butter usage will be increasing. I know it will for me!

    I’ve been keeping my hair completely covered with scarves and beanies.

    I’ve just now started covering my hair while it’s in a loose high bun, covering my bun with a bit of satin cloth, scrunchie on top to secure it.

    I use my typical leave ins, and then apply an even coat of Shea and Bacuri Butter on my length. Keep my hair up for a week, no touching, no anything, then I take my hair down and wash and repeat. So low maintenance, I love it.

    When it gets super cold and/or starts snowing, my hair will not see the light of day. I'll be fully Shea'd up under hats and turbans. I'll come back out of hibernation in the Spring. :lachen:

    @ElevatedEnergy Hello! :oops: Thanks for asking..I'm doing a lot of therapy for my left arm/left leg because of an accident that I had last Feb..I'm in pain a lot,but I keep going..I had to start going back to the salon because it was too painful to comb or wash my hair..I can now lift my arm & stand on my leg to oil and comb my own hair again..Great feeling..

    I got my hair done today and got some devastating news. As you can see my hair is breaking off in some areas, especially in the middle. It’s very uneven and looks thin. Since I have super thick hair this is very unusual. My stylist thinks it’s the hair gel I went back to using after she told me not (Wetline gel) and not deep conditioning regularly. It could also be the hormonal since I’m trying out meds for my fibroids. I’ve been on those meds for over a year with no major issues though. She recommended cutting off my hair and starting over. I chose not to. So needless to say I’m taking gel out of my regimen completely and giving up sleek buns. I’m gonna opt for twist outs. Also back to deep conditioning with heat for 15 minutes every wash day. And of course I’ll be talking to my doctors about the meds they’ve got me on. Good news is my hair grew a lot and is almost BSL now!

    @caribeandiva I’m so sorry to see that your hair is breaking. I hope that you and your doctor are able to figure out what’s going on.

    Thank you. It’s better that this happened now versus much later in my hair journey. Now that I’ve had time to process it and calm down a little, I think I’ll take my stylist’s advice and cut off all my hair and start over. I was gonna do gradual cuts but I’d rather just get it over with and not prolong this painful process. If I do BC it’ll be next month. I wanna weigh all my options first and not make any rash decisions.

    More options to think about that could work too if you would be ok with the maintenance.


    An inverted bob

    short-stacked-bob-hair-styles.jpg

    All one length

    2-side-parted-short-brunette-hairstyle.jpg


    With this one you could keep the bulk of your length, if your goal is to have all of your hair grow out even.

    Just a few more ideas.....:2inlove: There is always brightness on the other side of things we grow through. Hold your head up...now you can have some fun! Yessssss!

    That’s what I meant by big chop. Now I realize I wasn’t clear. :lol: Looking at these pictures makes me feel better. I don’t have to go completely back to square one like my first BC when I went natural after transitioning for 3 months. Plus my hair grows fast so I’ll get it all back in no time. You’re right that there is always brightness on the other side of these things. I can’t wait to see what good things come out of this.

    Ok, I see!! You know when I see big chop, my mind goes to all the hair being chopped off. :lachen:

    I can totally see you rocking and killing any of those styles! I imagine you pushing hair behind your ears showing off those lovely nails and that banging watch you just purchased. Blushing ever so sweetly and smiling whenever someone pays you a compliment.....

    @caribeandiva ,
    Did you go to sleep with your hair in the same bun you wore for the day? Or, did you take down your bun before going to bed?

    Today I bought some artisanal coco butter. The vendor is a friend of a friend. She then gifted me with a kg of Shea butter. That brings my Shea butter stash to 11 pounds! I'm not going through o have to buy any for at least 1 more year!

    I still have a 1 pound container of Shea Nilotica that I have not opened...and maybe 8 to 10 ounces of a jar I'm currently using. I never want to be without this stuff and I see that 3Cayg has a hard time keeping it in stock. So when they do get a new batch in, I plan on splurging on a 5 pound pail of it. Bet you wont catch me slipping!!!!!
