    I love her hair. Following her might turn me Insta a PJ. She’s been raving about DevaCurl supercream + KCCC.

    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 :cantlook: :nono::lachen:

    I’m glad times have changed and I know what I’m doing now.

    Yesterday morning while putting out my trash my wig got caught on branch which made it shift back unbeknownst me By the time I got to the car dealership and they told me I had leaves in my hair, it completely slipped off. I grabbed and ask for the location of the restroom, I didn't act embarrassed at all, just another day in the life of Lissa0821. When my car was done, the same service guy who showed me the restroom walked me to my car and said, please come visit me again because I think you are so cool. I said ok and drove off.

    I used all Pattern except for Deva’s Wash Day Wonder and Camille Rose’s Aloe Whipped Butter Gel.

    My curl pattern was restored, color looks vibrant, hair is full, but my hair is so DRYYYYYYYY

    I realized that I rarely post my hair pix in this thread. Maybe because I don't really do anything special to my hair. Lol. But maybe sharing will help other relaxed lurkers feel welcome in here as well. :)

    Here's my texlax last week after a 5 month stretch. I only flat iron once or twice a year. This is my final flat iron for this year:

    I've been growing out my tapered cut since Dec 2017. I have been cutting the top, but now that my hair as grown out in the back I have to different curl patterns. The sides and back are a very tight curl and the top is just blah. Is there any way to fix that? I've been wearing buns under my wig, maybe I should get it braided.

    What do you mean by blah?
    I’m finding that light protein consistently is encouraging my hair to curl up more (if that’s the issue you’re having with the top).

    the top just doesn’t have the same curls has the back of my head & sides. Looks like it’s blown out but I don’t use heat at all.

    you suggesting light protein, I will try that.

    I would say definitely give it a try. Protein helps with curl definition and elasticity.

    A little upset right now. I had to do a hair drug test this morning and they had to cut around 1/2 inch section of hair from the root. Like what!? I'm so deflated because that was years of progress just gone and now I have a patch in my head. It's small and no one will notice but me. I'm trying to remind myself that it will grow back, but I'm still so upset! :cry3:

    The same thing happened to me 3 years ago. My job requires hair strands from the root. They took it from the center of my head. The next time it happened, I requested the nape area. I was very upset as you know. It will grow back better than before @BeautifulRoots
