money, DIY = less revenue for them
Eh, plenty of people still buying. Most don't even like doing DIY because of the inconvenience.
I was supposed to retwist my locs last night. I shampoo'd, conditioned, and deep conditioned. Unfortunately, I fell asleep with a head full of creamy DC.
DC+ locs=lots of rinsing.
I get my hair BC this upcoming Saturday and I’m ready. I’m so tired to dealing with two textures.
I also watched a video on how to cornrow, because I want to do a crochet mini twist install after I take my jumbo twist out. I think I finally understand how to do it.
Why do I keep coloring my gray streaks? Ughh!!!
I see so many others with beautiful gray streaks. I'm having trouble embracing mine. I need to stop the madness!
I have a good number of gray hairs in the front (especially considering that I'm only 31). I think that they're cool and look like Christmas tinsel! I got a compliment from someone younger who thought that my hair was so pretty with the gray streaks. She assumed that they were dyed though
Thank you so much for sharing this with me. I'm encouraged by your post.
I’ll try a different technique this wash day. I’ll prepoo, wash and finish with an ace rinse. If that doesn’t help with shine Idk what will. I greased my scalp with Monistat last night. I’m on the grow. We only have a few more weeks this year to make something happen.
I love the way my hair smells on wash day.
I want to try new products, but I also really really don't want to rock the boat. Progress has been slow but steady and I'm getting the familiar itch for braids or something (but done by somebody else). Probably best to ignore those urges until I can settle on something concrete in my head.
Sitting here with DC in my hair and debating on going to bed. I’m soo tired, I had henna in for 4 hours and indigo for 3. I’m really contemplating shaving it off again. I’ll update in the AM
I ran out of my usual DC, Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Walmart didn’t have any left, so I got Eden’s Jojoba Monoi DC. My hair loves it. Three days after wash day and my hair is still super moisturized.
And I have three more days until my big chop. I think I’m going to cut most of it off myself and then go to the salon and have them shape it.
So I washed out the dc but didn’t moisturize
About to moisturize and put it in 5 braids
AFter a month of straight hair my hair was really trying to act like it didn't want to revert. I was like not today honey and slap it with a ton of deva curl conditioner. Let me tell you that stuff has some act right juice the curls were just popping.
I'm on a personal challenge to let my hair grow as long as I can handle. With my shrinkage, using nl, sl, bsl, etc as measuring points is futile. When it gets to the point where I'm happy with the shape and wash day isn't 3 and 4 hours, I'll keep it there.
I think wash and gos and occasional protective styles will get me there.
What shape are you aiming for?
I'd be happy here
I love her hair. Following her might turn me Insta a PJ. She’s been raving about DevaCurl supercream + KCCC.
Happy birthday to my big sister down in Fla!!!

I went and got a professional hair cut. I chopped all my hair off into a tapered cut. It was expensive but I like the result. Hopefully it will be easier to maintain.

Tomorrow is the big day, and I’m nervous. I haven’t had my hair this short since sophomore year of college in 2003.
I already know my hair will look a lot better this time around, because I know about DC, leave ins, shingling, and stylers.
The first time I big chop my hair stayed dry and matted. I detangled my hair with no conditioner and I never used leave in. It was bad
I’m glad times have changed and I know what I’m doing now.
I know that I did not catch my hair tangling when I took out my flattwists!!!! And I found a ssk! No, ma'am. We are not about that life . This hair's getting flatironed tomorrow!!

October made a year since I used a comb. Hair never looked better.
