We will be upgrading the forum, gallery and blogs with the latest versions of the software we use. This will cause some disruption. We will however try our best to minimize it.
The maintenance will start the first week of May 2022 and will continue until all upgrades are completed (both software and hardware).
Thank you for your understanding.
last nite took my twists down because after only a week they started looking a uggghhh.. today I have errands so i'm going to try pookaloo83's (thanks for the link Pook) bun method and see how that works out.. later I'll co wash/dc/moisturize then see how I'm feeling after that to decide on what to do next-if anything
Yesterday I went to the Dominican salon and got a fresh relaxer. I will be wearing my hair down today and going back to my buns and updoes tomorrow. I am amazed at how healthy my hair is and how much I have been preventing major split ends. I didn't even need a trim. I just had a light dusting. I can't take pictures but I know I am getting a kindle fire for Christmas so I will post pictures then.
Two weeks in with my smallish twists. I dced them with AO GPB, washed, then moisturized/sealed with Bee Mine Luscious and castor/grapeseed oil. I put them in two braids and tied them up with an ouchless band, then slapped a headband on top of that. Looks "meh", but I'm not going anywhere or trying to impress right now. I'll probably keep them in another week.
I ordered mine from this ebay vendor http://stores.ebay.co.uk/happycurls, she is a sweetheart and her products re great quality!
I will say get two set of 48 to avoid frizzy hair, I like the extra long wide and the extra long-narrow!
-PYT I did another curlformer set yesterday and I did a number of things different. I ensured my hair was soaking wet prior to installing each curlformer and skipped setting lotions and gels. I only used a leave-in spritz, QB CTDG and castor oil at the ends.
O.M.Geeeee! My set same out 100x better than the last one. More hold (interestingly, because I skipped the holding products), set was smoootthhh, and my hurr is looking so purrtty! I was planning to twist immediately on taking them down, but umm NO. LOL.
Happy Holidays ladies! I put loose twists into my hair on Sunday and not only did they take way less time to complete, I love them! Im not sure how long i'll leave them in. Probably no longer than 2 weeks. I will post pics when I look not busted. I've seriously been doin absolutely nothing since I went on holiday break. Lol
bajandoc86 I'm still loving these curlformers myself...but! I've been noticing a lot of ssks. Maybe that's unavoidable with our hair type but I'm on the verge of going insane I'm tempted to do another curlformer set and flat iron in a couple days...ya know, to give myself a good trim!
