I am starting the thread SUPER early to accommodate the following 3 must have rules before the initial start of the challenge:

1. Visit your doctor. Request a physical and blood work. Find out areas where you are deficient and address them. If you have had blood work done in 2016 and already know your stats...cool beans. Skip ahead.

2. Reduce your stress. If there are...

I want to be clear that this isn't necessarily a challenge. This is a group support thread and you can set every week, once a quarter, or maybe you've never done a set before. Everyone in the past threads has been welcoming, accessible, and friendly and I know that will continue into 2017. Feel free to pop in, look at pictures,...

Hi LHCF Ladies,

I've recently had my hair truly straightened for the first time since I went natural in 2009. While it was a fun 2 days (yes I only kept it for two days). The stylist was very gentle, and she didn't do a hard press to make sure my hair reverted just as I asked.

I found out about it from a FB natural hair group and was able to purchase it at a nearby BSS. It's from the original creator of Surge 14 but it's now under a new name. It has the same exact ingredients as the original Surge.
