I think you're already WL.
Can you bun with a claw clip, chop sticks, or hair pins? I don’t use hair ties, or ponytail holders.
I just checked a hair length chart and it appears youre right. Im sorry. Ill delete my post
I guess i will wash my hair on monday. I plan on using DE peppermint and Aloe shampoo, honey Creme shampoo
Deep condition with the reconstructor
Rinse with DE almond butter
Leave-in Mizani with IC heat protectant serum
With Lottabody wrap mousse
Flat iron and wrap.
I will use my bigger rollers to just stretch my hair.
I thought I was crazy and didn't say anything. There is a HL challenge that would be perfect for you
I thought she was in denial, so I said a little prayer for her. Prayer changes things! Lol Won’t He Do It!
I could but I forgot about my workouts.. I'm not sure I can do it with the shrinkage from sweating...
Hi ladies. I've been using sulfur pomade every week for about three times per week. I think this is my third week or so doing this. I will continue for the next 6 months. I took my hair down from two week old twists and wore a twist out bun. I'm gonna prepoo/detangle. with some APB Creamy oil and water before I shampoo. Then I'll do a protein treatment/DC and put it back up in these twists. I am happy to say I have seen little to no breakage in the past two to three months with the addition of weekly protein. I'm gonna start wearing wigs again as well.
I have an order of shea butter coming soon because I'm also in the Shea length and retention challenge.
Got my shea and mango butter order. I made a little batch of whipped SB, mango butter, EVOO and castor oil, and it smells so good with the fragrance I added.
Just gave my hair a little bit of protein boost and moisturized with APB Bamboo spray, APB Cupuacu Avocado, and sealed with my whipped shea butter mix. I also have still been using the NJoy sulfur pomade on my scalp three times a week. I used it today for the first time this week. Two more times to go. Then I braided my twists into two large pigtail braids and pinned them up, ready for my wig.
Ok... I thought I would make it to WL this year 2017. It seems that I just cant do it. Smh Im a bit disappointed in myself. (Small pity party)
Just found that I have Hypothyroidism and it may be causing some extra hair fall. (Ay least I can blame iy on something, lol) I dont know if Im out of the hair game now for good or what. Im just gonna keep fighting for it.
Here's a picture from last night Dec 27th
@NCHairDiva you are so close! You are entering unicorn territory fo sho, gurl.
Selenium can help, also iodine (if it is not Hashimoto's).
Are you taking Vit D and iron?
Just washed my hair with Elucence acidifying shampoo, and MB shampoo.
I used their reconstructor, rinsed, then applied MB conditioner and left it on for several minutes in the shower. I tried not to rinse it all out, since it can be used as a leave-in.
Now I’m allowing my towel to soak up the water from my hair a bit, detangle, then dry, flat iron.
I can’t part through this new growth without causing breakage to do a roller set.
Girl hang in there! Looks like you are this close sis! And I agree, have you checked your vitamin levels?
I ended up bunning my hair after blow drying it.
My doctor did a full blood check, so everything was checked. The only thing that she found was that my thyroid levels were really low... So I'm going to try some natural remedies first. Because they wanted to give me a medication that comes from pig Thorpe gland and I can't handle that in my body. (Makes my skin crawl). I read kelp helps but the smell is really fishy and it comes out your pores and I dont need those problems. Lol I'm trying to do the kelp powder in a very mild way. (In my tea... drinking)
No, I havent taken any vitamins but I'm about to start back. I need to get the best ones and put it in my regamin.
Im going to look into Selenium... Ant brands that you would know about? Thank you!
Pure Formulas has their own brand and a bunch of others. There is a liquid form as well.
I just ordered the liquid form.... I did a little research and think that the benefits can be amazing. So I cant wait to get it and get started... I can't wait to feel normal again. My hair is stressing me out...less then 10 months until my wedding and now my hair wants to start doing crazy mess...smh It cool though, Im fighting this till the end...
Gonna shampoo, protein/DC, leave in, moisturize and seal in these twists today. I think I'll continue to only remove my twists every two weeks so I can detangle. One week I'll wash in the same twists and the next week I will redo them to keep down on manipulation.
First time joining you ladies and I'm excited.
I plan to wash or cowash every 10-14 days. I have joined the protective style challenge in order to limit manipulation of my hair.
I will keep my hair bunned most of the time.
On wash day I will use both a protein and a moisturizing DC to maintain a good balance.
How many inches do you have to go to get to WL:
My roots are growing in coily so I don't know how many inches it will take me to get there. Let's hope that I get it this year anyway.
Beautiful transitioning hair! What length point do you intend to start trimming the ends? @Alma Petra
Thank you dear!
I don't yet have clear plans regarding trimming, but I will probably not start it until I am full WL. Or maybe I'll just go with the fairy-tale ends for now.
Washed and dc’ed my hair last night. I need to moisturize, but with what? Lol I put my hair in a bun. I also gave myself a really good trim.
Applied NJoy sulfur pomade to my scalp and re-moisturized my twists, then braided them back up and pinned up the braids for underneath my wig. Applied my own shea butter mix to my edges, crown and nape.
I may try cowashing again. My hair is dry. It’s just so dry in my home. My nose feels like it’s about to start bleeding!
Regimen: Scalp massages; Growth aides 3-5 times a week-GrowBalm and ayurvedic powders mixed in oils; ayurvedic products for weekly washdays; weekly DC; m&s as needed; protein treatments as needed; buns
How many inches until WL- 4 or 5"
Issues-Keeping thick ends
Starting pic: (my last touch-up)
Welcome! Gorgeous hair.
Hi ladies! I protein/dc today after clarifying with Redken Cleansing Cream. Scalp feels nice and clean. Making sure I keep up with clarifying once a month since I've been going hard with shea butter to seal. Been using AVJ/glycerine/water mix and it makes my hair nice and soft.
Today after I moisturize with the AVJ/glycerine, water, I will apply loads of shea butter to my hair and twist in medium/large twists for underneath my wig. I'm going to leave it along for a week. That means I won't be able to use my sulfur pomade on my scalp....if I retain a good amount of moisture after a week, I will continue. I want it to be similar to the Chebe method.
