    Im hoping so, Im about to contact my stylist and see if we are still on. She has some personal things going on so ive been real laid back.
    I want to play with my curls and potions stuff anyways. If she cant do it tomorrow, I'll just wait until next week @IDareT'sHair

    Do you know what are you using to "Prep" or if she doesn't do it this weekend, do you know what you'll be using?

    The Hair Rules products for kinky hair were finally restocked. So I purchased the no lather wash, curl quench, leave-in and curl cream before they sold out. I bought samples last year and never tried them :nono:

    So I tried them tonight but I should have shampooed my hair to give it a fair test. I oiled my hair and scalp before removing my twist. And not sure the curl wash was meant for that. :ohwell:

    The wash was good. It's definitely not stripping and it is pretty creamy. The curl quench was OK. I'm going to have to try it a few times before I make my final decision. It's meant to be washed out after 5 minutes but can be used like a DC. I used it like a DC but without heat. I will try it again with heat when I'm not being lazy. I put in a little leave-in but I didn't use enough to rate it. I may put it in a spray bottle and dilute it like the rest of my leave-ins. Then I put in the curl cream while in the shower. I made sure I rewet my hair and worked it in.

    I twisted my hair up so I'm interested to see how my hair feels when it dries and see if it maintains moisture for a week. The curl cream seems promising. My twist have some hang and they still have some plumpness. Usually I have one or the other.

    Hey love heart! :kiss:

    Thanks for always checking up on me. Here in the capital, we have had some flooding from king and spring tides but not where I live. My house is fine.

    The challenge we are all having is power so many times I want to come online but can't because of a lack of electricity. It's sporadic and we don't know when and how long it will be out so we just have to wait.

    I try to power up my gadgets and phones each time the power is restored so I won't be totally incapacitated. Other than that, I'm great. I guess a good way to look at it is I'm saving a few bucks when my power is out :yep:

    The twist cream has my twist looking good while wet but they dry wonky. My hair felt soft but only partially moisturized. And they look a week old even after 1 day. Gel just tames my hair better .

    Last night I spritzed with braid spray and braided my twist together. That helped me to salvage them until the weekend.

    In the future I may mix the curl cream and gel to see if that works better.

    @IDareT'sHair :hiya:

    Power is somewhat restored but our power company is still having challenges. I do what I can when it's on. I had to install a generator at my salon because the power outages were becoming excessive.

    I may have to look into installing one here at home as well. But I need to give the power company a chance to themselves up running fully once and for all.

    I think I may have that Oil?

    I hope so. It would be excellent for Fall/Winter.:drool:

    I understand about Bekura.

    @shawnyblazes You should send her a pm & ask her..That would be a great alternative for folks that are sensitive to coconut oil..

    Happy Hair Growing!
