Random Hair Thoughts/Thinking out loud

Aw man. Changed it how?
the biggest change to me is that the protein source is no longer hydrolyzed keratin.
I haven’t purchased the new version but there are quite a few reviews on Sephora complaining about it. I also think that oils are higher on the list of ingredients, but I would have to double check that.

I just compared my current jar with what's on their site. The ingredient list is totally flipped around. Behentrimonium Methosulfate which was the 4th ingredient on my jar is now near the bottom. All the oils got pushed to the front. The proteins are same 3 as before ( I don't have keratin listed on my jar). And all the peel ingredients are gone.

Why can't they leave stuff be. Smh.

Did a rollerset last night and got pretty smoothe results on my coarse type 4 hair. Probably my best set to date. I’m seeing some small broken hairs though, not sure if it was the rollers or if I need a protein or moisture treatment. Still learning my hair I guess. It’s up in a bun now where it will stay for the next 10-14 days

edit— I steamed last night with my new LCL steamer, so I don’t think moisture is the issue. I used a mix of mielle babassu mint and the mielle protein free conditioner. I am trying to use these up as they’re Just okay, not my favourite. But my hair felt nice and moisturized after.

Beautiful set @Mapleoats!!

Yesterday a hairstylist I follow on IG was going on about not using oils on your hair, and someone asked “what if another hair stylist I follow uses oils?”

The response was to pick a philosophy and unfollow anyone that doesn’t agree.

I had to laugh because 1) I’m actually trying to follow most of this stylists philosophies and really had no problem giving up oil or products with oil in the top 5 ingredients but 2) is it really that serious?

I bought mine about a 18 months ago so I’m not sure when they stopped using keratin, but I really like keratin. That’s the only protein in mine. I sent them an email and I got a fairly generic response.

I wanted to add to this. I just checked the Sephora website. They posted the newer ingredients list for the DDR mask.
Unfortunately, it's like your post.
Why'd she put all of the conditioning agents towards the bottom?

Oils, some humectants, hydrolyzed proteins, then the actual conditioning agents near the bottom? :confused:

Now how much slip will be lost with this formulation?

There's different ways to combine the ingredients, so they don't compromise the integrity of the hair.

I went ahead and ordered a length check t-shirt for the first time and i've been on hair boards for more than a decade at this point :lol:
i just really want to achieve blunt APL on my blowdried natural hair (i get more consistent results blowdrying than flatironing, so i think it's better for length checks) after a trim in 2021 and i'm done growing hair, so i figure the shirt will give me some precise info on how my hair is doing from quarter to quarter. or maybe every two months

I’m so sad. I LOVE this conditioner.

I generally avoid DIYs because they are time consuming and I already spend too much time on my hair lol. Buuuuut lately I’ve been thinking of making my own hydration spray/mix. The goal is something super hydrating and slippery that won’t weigh my hair down or leave it feeling sticky for rollersets, and mid week moisturizing when my hair is in twists.

I already add aloe vera juice to my spray bottle and my hair loves it, so I wanna take it a step farther. I’m thinking to add coconut water and the ordinary’s amino acids + b5 serum.

This TO serum already has a high concentration of amino acids, Panthenol, and a bunch of non glycerin humectants. so I’d just buy this and dump a bit of it in my spray bottle lol. Too lazy to source the ingredients and fully DIY it myself :look:

Admission:
I lost over half of my hair during this pandemic. I suspect I had CV-19 back in November and there were a lot of people here from Wuhan going back and forth. What happened was either the result of that sudden hair loss that occurs months later or just that I didn't comb and just bunned for a week. I'd done it before with difficulty detangling but no massive hairfall. Oh well. It's on the mend now but my ponytail is so pathetic. Poor thing.

So, can anybody tell me what ever happened to the Dominican Banos de Colores hair tints? Does anybody know of any good substitutes?

I'm curious about curls. My hair is mostly wavy. I mean I don't have a lot of those boing-boing curls except for in the back. Is this normal? Are other people doing something to get more boing-boings like twisting or something? I love that hair with all the clumped boings!

On the Grow and Keeping it Semi-DIY
An in law told me yesterday, "You have all that pretty hair, but you never do anything with it."

It made me laugh because I used to think the same thing about long haired women back in the day. Now I know that keeping it simple is a major part of length retention and growth.

After laughing, I simply thanked her for the compliment. She walked away confused by my response, which of course made me laugh a more.

Nevermind. I'm stupid. My hair was still wet.

Glad you figured it out!

I think more naturals than we realize have more of a tight S wave pattern as opposing to a circular curl, especially as the hair gets longer. My hair completely dry hangs in tight waves and curls at the ends.
That's what my hair was doing. wave, and then boings at the ends. Now that it's dry there's a lot more boing.

That’s what my hair does too. I wish it curled all the way to the root, but that’s not what it does.

So, my ignorant butt tried the semi-permanent color from Jerom Punky Color in Ebony rather than waiting to find the one I wanted and I came out like a Smurf! My bathtub is smurfed, my feet and hands are smurfed, just Smurf everywhere. This happened in the shower. Beware.
