    If you hadn’t had that setback you’d have never eventually help me out with Shea butter. Alongside the countless others you’ve helped in this thread. I’d still be struggling with my hair for who knows how long? Everything happens for a GOOD reason.

    I think my diagnosis was after surgery for an ectopic pregnancy...so long ago. And my fibroids never caused me pain, just heavy periods. Go figure.

    What about for the Shea Hair Made Unicorn Extravaganza? Decided on a style for THAT, yet?

    I drink at least a gallon, more when I work out and I work out very frequently (most of the time :look:). Unfortunately, none of this seems to help. :/

    Weird indeed. I wonder if the issue is psychosomatic then. Meaning a physical manifestation or response to a stressful situation in your life.

    My life itself. Lol.

    The symptoms were notably less when I was on antidepressants. So to say, I had probably what a normal female period is like; uncomfortable but not debilitating. So since you mention that, it does make me wonder.

    You’ve got a good starting point. Keep thinking about it and you’ll start connecting the dots.

    This thread has been vital to my hair journey this year. Even though I did somewhat of a big chop, the power of Shea butter has reduced my breakage significantly by allowing shed hairs to slide out instead of causing single strand knots. Layering it on top of Luster's s curl has taken my moisture levels to uncharted territory. Now I'm using Shea butter on blown out hair, and my hair feels phenomenal. I can't thank you ladies enough for all of the invaluable información.

    Congratulations on your success! That big chopped hair may be the start of tail bone length curls.

    20180314_140033-266x575.jpg 20181230_112814-979x1305.jpg Checking in for the end of the year. I've worn my hair in box braids and feed in braids since June. I slather my hair with Shea before I get it braided.

    I didn't get great photos before I got it redone but March pic and December pictures are below.

    Looking good @ArrrBeee ! It looks like your hair is 2x or TWICE as long as before. How many inches would you say your retained between the two photos?

    It looks like about 2 to 4 inches to me. That's a lot of retention.

    Will you be joining us in the Shea Growth and Retention Challenge 2019? I hope so!

    Thanks @Chicoro. I'll be joining you all. I think that I retained about 2-3 inches. My hair feels healthy but I still get knots on my ends.

    I whipped up a fresh batch today but it's grainy and I don't know how to remedy that.

    Put a boiler on the stove and put some water in it. Put your batch of grainy Shea butter in a heat proof bowl and put that bowl inside the boiler, on low heat. Melt down your butter completely to a liquid. Then put it in the fridge until it is solid. Then, once it's solidified, whip it again with more oil. That should remove the graininess.

    Be sure, if you feel like it, to post these pictures in the 2019 thread. They are very inspirational and encouraging. And, they can serve as the 'before' picture for your 2019 end of year process.
