    Finally, the brown (came out black) demi- permanent hair color I used (moved in) months ago is leaving the building!

    018277A7-99E2-4867-BC32-E183A9A84E4E.jpeg Here is my hair today... I just washed and conditioned with VERB. Blotted out excess water with a towel and put my hair in a puff. Added some carols daughter hair oil, and there we go.

    I don’t know how to take care of my natural hair. I will start installing twists later (that’s the only thing I can do!! And I do it well). But I suppose I can appreciate the size of my puff.

    I wish I knew how to take better care of my hair in this state.

    2A68A7AA-8CF5-4BEF-80FD-4418C6E63E82.jpeg I put an Ion keratin treatment on last night. I hate how matte it looks after the application. My first wash will reveal the shine and smoothness

    WAIT! I was confused and thought this was a pretty wig. This is real hair. Wow, your hair is so beautiful! It's starting to get that hanging, long and heavy look. Meaning, you've got even more length coming.

    Thank you Miss Lady :D. I’m using your shea method, though I still have to read the whole thread :cloud9:.

    Really? Do tell....what have you incorporated or are doing thus far? I am always intrigued to know what is working for other people. I'm waiting...taps little foot with impatience and hopeful expectations....

    :lol:

    So far, one small nugget really: shea butter is becoming so popular that in all honesty, I started becoming wary of it. Until I read / heard what you said: it's the perfect ingredient for afro-textured hair. So now I want to explore it even further.

    During these cold months, I will be using it as a hot oil treatment (mixing it with my condis). So far so good, really pleased with the result :yep:. The thread you started is really long, but I'm on a personal hair care 2.0 challenge, so...will definitely take time to read through it ;).

    But I want to know how YOU've been using it, please! So, you've been mixing it in your conditioner! Okay!

    Yup! I just heat it up in a small pan and let the shea butter to conditioner ratio be 3 to 1. I've seen some videos of women who are able to whip up the shea butter, until it's a nice gooey consistency, but I'm not there yet.

    I mixed in some essential oils and raw honey, but the honey is currently sitting at the bottom. Will keep you in the know of how it all works out. Currently aiming for SL (while stretched or flat ironed), by 2020 :yep:.

    I've seen your hair below bra-strap, if my memory serves me correctly. Thus, I have no doubt that you will be at shoulder length AND BEYOND, very soon! Keep us posted!
