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.
Simple is best
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
Dced on dry hair then washed, straightened and trimmed. It’s frizzing up already though
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.
Beautiful hair! @MzSwift
Thanks so much @GettingKinky !
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.
thank you, looking up protein treatments now.
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!
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
I’m so sorry. That is so invasive! Can’t they just do a urine or blood test?
Thank you. Yeah, they cut a piece in the middle, wish it were the nape. :-/
Thank you. It is! They did do a urine too. No blood test though. It's crazy.
When I switch staples, I buy a new set of travel containers for all my products. I hope this is the last time. I really like my current staples. I’m down to 3 shampoos, 3 conditioners and 2 styling products.
I plan to try one more conditioner and maybe 3 more styling products. After that I really, really want to be done.
I feel like I'm building my hair up to something but I don't know what or even for when. I've been bunning for so long now and while it's really done wonders I need something else. Downside is I don't really like twist or braid outs or straight hair for very long. A mess.
Kerastase has an in salon shine treatment called K water. I need that in my life. Maybe I’ll treat myself for the holidays
@MzSwift thanks for posting. I love hair pics (relaxed, natural or in between).
A beauty supply was open today. I got a clear rinse to mix with my dc. I’m so excited. I’m currently under the dryer with the last of my maskeratine (smoothing mask) and some clear gloss. I’ll use Kerastase nectar thermique to blow dry.
Have you tried a wash n go?
So I like the look, but not the after. It's like the SSKs come out en masse to spite me.
Yeah, I get that. I’ve stopped looking for/paying attention to my SSKs.
I finally cut my hair yesterday. I feel so much better having the relaxed ends cut off.
Today I’m going to wash my hair, do a blow out, and section my hair for my jumbo twist. And then on Saturday I’m going to do my install.
