I lost very little hair detangling today and it's probably because of my new Garnier sleek shot. My hair is instantly smoother out of the shower. It straightens better, lasts longer and I can probably replace my bkt with this since it’s gentle , inexpensive and works so well.

    I was just on a cruise and there were soooo many black people. A majority of the women had some type of braid extension.

    I used to have a very strong bias towards women wearing their own hair (and I still LOVE seeing that), but I’ve grown to appreciate braid extensions. When done well, they look really nice.

    I honestly just need to stop messing about and teach myself how to braid and do my own hair. That way when I don't like something I can fix it myself. I had been planning to keep this hair in for a month but this is may just be a 3 week thing.

    They’ve been here for years, major companies too. Where do you think all these co-washes, products with exotic oils, rice water, pre-shampoo treatments etc.... come from. This place is marketing and product development heaven.


    I have had ignored customer service issues magically resolved after venting on here.

    Oh, I know they do. I'm just annoyed.

    Major companies started off of haircare forums. I stopped posting on Naturally Curly because youre censoring me yet youre getting revenue off my posts. @MilkChocolateOne

    Ok given time to cool off, I hate my hair less. Still not my favourite, but I can bear it.

    I’m not sure who posted about squish to condish but I have to say thank you. The change in my hair was IMMEDIATE, clumped curls everywhere. This week, I didn’t have enough time/energy to do it well or thoroughly and it shows. I’ve also incorporated this technique into my mid-week detangle session & it’s helped TONS in actually retaining moisture.
    Thank you, thank you!

    That was me!! I LOVE squish to condish, I’ve posted about it in a lot of threads. I’m so glad that it worked for you.
    Does it take you a long time to do?

    I’m currently prepooing with Ion Pigments magenta conditioner again. I put it all over this time. Not just the ends

    Yes & no. It adds maybe an extra 20-30 minutes. Not a lot in terms of how long wash day can take but challenging when I’m already low-energy or crunched for time. But this week’s wash shows that I just need to make it happen every wash so I’ll have to plan my time and energy better.

    Edit- and I may just need to do it more often to get used to it and perfect my process.

    20-30 minutes extra? Do you have super dense hair? How exactly are you doing it?

    Almost 10 years on this hair journey. I no longer run to the haircare aisle in every store, use heat when I want, my stash only contains 5 products(and I currently use every single one), relax bone straight, and my hair has never looked and felt better. I can't believe I used to follow all those dang rules lol.

    My hair is very dense but usually it’s not a hard thing to deal with. I work in 6-10 sections & I use a wide tooth comb, tips to roots after squishing. The tangles slide right out so much better.

    I’m also thinking that, hopefully, with consistent use of the technique my hair won’t take as long to reach that point of optimal absorption.

    I didn’t think so either until I saw a symbol of an open jar with a 12 m on my bottle. I’ve had this bottle for 2 years now. The expiration is most likely not the reason it’s stopped strengthening my hair (it still hardens with heat), I’m just trying to figure what next *sigh* - it’s my favorite protein rx.
