I did some flexi rods for a wedding I went to. Might do this style more often. Loved it before the humidity got to it too bad. Lol

I was thinking about how my ends get raggedy despite treating them well now, and I realized that the ends are actually the hair that was on my whole head a few years ago. Back then, I didn't care about my hair at all. I wore braids and didn't moisturize and only used a conditioning shampoo. Then after the braids, I'd wear my hair out and blow-dried it every day... :nono: The hair was just damaged. I think most of it is gone now.

Anyway, I found a conditioner called Tio Nacho and have been applying it to my ends. They feel so soft.

So, I've been trying new things with my hair over the last little while and I think that I'm finally settling into a new routine.

1. Newest experiment is finger detangling under running water. I don't use conditioner, just gentle detangling. I'm kind of adopting the water only method, except I cleans weekly. It's only been about 3 weeks, but it's working very well for me.

2. Tallow is my new favourite oil. It looks as dense as shea, but spreads thinner. I'm using it on myself and my kids and our hair is staying softer for much longer and looks a lot shiner and as a result, healthier. I find that it's helping to keep my hair from meshing. I use it as LCOO (first oil being an ayurvedic oil)

3. I've been threading my hair after twisting it. It's working well from keeping my hair from moving around during the week and then meshing.

4. The last two weeks, I've been applying my moisturizer with a LOT of water, like a saw in a no oils/butter salon demo. It takes my hair 2 days to dry (after threading it) but my hair seems to like this as well and helps me to maintain the stretch that I get from detangling in the shower.

When I do a quick length check in the shower, it feels like some of my hairs feel like they're creeping towards my butt dimples (hip length)? But I don't want to actually check until later this year, just in case I'm way off.

I'm still nursing some of the broken areas that I experienced over the past two years. They're not in any one section so I have to be extra kind to my hair.

Lucky Lady! You've got beautiful hair AND a beautiful back, too!

Butt dimples = Although women and men both can have them, Venus Dimples seem to be an attractive trait in women. If you’ve never paid attention to them on yourself or anyone else, perhaps the Venus has inspired you to check them out. You can even find them on Facebook! Do you have Venus dimples? Have you always wondered where they came from?

Thank you! I've never thought about it, but it's true...venus dimples are ultra feminine...
