    I have only ever washed my hair loose twice since September. Today was the second time and never again! I shaved my head/BC'ed on NYE 2010 and I kept all my 6 inches so thats all the hair that i have. I usually wash and DC in twists, and wear a wig over it. But today I got the genius idea to do it loose and it was torture detangling and retwisting my hair afterwards.

    I am 27 months post relaxer and just made APL. Here's to reaching BSL in 2012!
    This is maybe the third time I've straightened my hair since the BC. I'll be back to my twists and twist outs in a couple weeks. With all that hair though, I haven't been able to make a proper bun when not straightened. The nape is much longer than the front and the middle is thighly coiled.

    Happy New Year Ladies :)

    I'm a little over 3 years post relaxer :yahoo:

    I straightened my hair and trimmed it, I trimmed at least 1.5 inches at the back - I hadn't trimmed all year! I'm loving my ends now :)

    Here's a picture of my hair at 3 yrs post relaxer before and after straightening:

    I had my hair in braids for a little over 2 months (Oct - Dec) and will be putting them back in braids this week :)

    I am new bald! No transition, just bald! I kinda just decided I was ready for something new and told hubby to shave it off! I am super excited to see what grows out of this head! I have never really seen my natural hair since I have had a relaxer for as long as I can remember!

    What is everyone using for styling and twisting? My HG (holy grail) no longer ships to Canada so I need to find something new. :sad:

    (and Sheamoisture products aren't available in Canada as far as I know)

    Eta: Actually just found sheamoisture products on honeyfig.com so..recommend away :grin:

    Foxglove Yes they do. I used to use the Amla & Heavy cream then stopped for whatever reason.

    I ordered the LCL Terresentials mud wash. I was also eyeing the Pura cupuucu butter but based on reviews I don't think it's similar to the Mozeke I loved.

    I'm still transitioning. It's been 12 1/2 months now. I plan to bc next year. I have definitely had my share on difficulties, but I am excited! :)

    Hi all, it's been a while. Took my braids out and trimmed 0.5-1.5 inches to get rid of split ends
    Here's my hair in a gelled pony with a phony puff

    Thanks mrsjohnson75 (Hair Twin!!) :)

    DC with ORS Replenishing Con, Leave In - Giovanni Direct, Heat protectant - IC (in the pink clear bottle) and I used my sister's flat iron. I don't own a flat iron yet, it was a very good one because I did a maximum of three passes on each section.

    I know this may have been asked many times before so please bear with me. Since my hair is mostly one length all over after my chop it seems to fall in layers. Will this grow out naturally or do I need to get a cut? What have some of you done regarding this?

    A couple of pictures from the last week... I'll be putting my hair back in braids in a couple of days. This is a busy year for me... and I've found the best way to care for my hair in braids so 2012 is my year of extensions (braids) - http://youtu.be/lqHJj9yQbFE
