Random Hair Thoughts/Thinking out loud

I’m wearing a mix of wash n gos and buns right now. When my wash n go gets old and frizzy I put it in a bun.
Do you think taking a break from the wash n'gos, and going straight to bunning would be a good option for you? Ladies be about that bun life, and wear their hair down when they feel like it :) .

I did buns for YEARS - I’m ready to wear my hair out. And the wash n go doesn’t seem to be slowing my growth progress. My face just looks better with buns. Maybe I just need to find the right shape for my wash n go.

Y’all.

Something is seriously wrong with me.

I was watching PeggyPeg’s YouTube channel and she was using Duvolle Rendezvous (Titanium?)Professional Styling Iron to straighten her transitioning hair and she said it burned her. I thought to myself “yeah, that’s the one” in my TikTok voice and bought it (with a coupon code) :lachen:

Stop judging me, I can see that or feel free to judge, I can’t tell you what to do lmao.

I straightened a tiny piece of my kid’s hair. No I didn’t burn him, you’re terrible :spinning::drunk::lachen: I finger detangled really janky and straightened his product free hair on 360. 1 pass. I could have gotten the ends better but he really doesn’t like tugging on his hair but that’s a story for another day lol

This flat iron said “put some RESPECT on my name when you said it”.

I would have taken these knotless braids down to try this if they didn’t cost how much they cost :angeldevil:
Did anyone else think of when Penny was being burned with an iron as punishment on Good Times?

I didn't realize my 1 year was up and I needed to make a payment again! No wonder I couldn't post and see all the forums.

Either way, HEY YALL :p

I'm having a love hate relationship with my hair right now. I self relaxed a few weeks ago and some areas didn't take as good as others - and for the life of me I just want to cut it back to SL. I'm growing towards BSL but I know as soon as I cut my hair I'm going to miss my length. But at this point I just want my hair to be healthy.

Tonight I'm going to give it some TLC and see how I feel moving forward. I'm loving the silk elements line right now I'm currently using their shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner and heat protection spray.

I been having the itch to take my knotless braids down (they’re kinda long and weirdly they’re starting to feel heavy). I took one braid down in an easy to conceal spot above my right ear and now I feel better :lachen:I’m gonna have to wet that piece of hair so I can see where the natural hair begins and the relaxed hair ends.

Your hair fluctuations never fail to tickle me. :biggrin:

I forgot that castor oil has humectant properties. All of the moisture in the air today is now right into my hair lol. I don't mind it because I like my sets (braid and curl) kind of poofy anyways.
Very much so. I put in a little on my scalp and days later with the humidity, my hair was so soft and lush. I haven't been deep moisturizing with this system I'm using that requires it and it baffled me in a good way. I think I'll just deep condition with some black castor oil in it.

Okay so disregard this recommendation. :lol: I was so annoyed during my lap swim today because it just would not stay put. Idk if it was because my hair had a more slippery conditioner coating (I think I put less conditioner on during my Thursday swim) but I’m going to need to find a different cap.

why oh why do I try different foam wraps :lol: there is literally nothing better than nairobi, hands down. there is no need to try this other stuff. I tried the doux one and i think i'm going to return it. I wanted to like it, but it's just not as good to me. decent moisture and hold, but that hold doesn't compare to nairobi. if they ever stop making it, i think i will have to shave my head because i can't live without it.

another note: I am going to try a wash and go sometime soon. I haven't even made an attempt in a long time, but i decided after my last vacation that i no longer want to do my standard "vacation braids" shtick anymore, so i need to have the styling skills for a wash and go in my back pocket. i'm going to try out the aunt jackie's flaxseed gel first because i am determined to get a 1-product wash and go routine down. i don't have the patience for layering and cocktailing.

Ladies I need your help. I used Clairol natural instincts in blue black this weekend. I followed directions and used the conditioner afterwards. Now when I touch my hair to moisturize I have small pieces on my hands.

As a natural with pretty much virgin hair this is alarming. I just did the loc method with aloe juice, avocado oil and garnier cream. I’m not sure what else to do to stop my strands from snapping off when wet. If I remember correctly it sounds like it’s over moisturized. I need a protein dc I think

I would do an olaplex treatment. I didn’t realize how harsh box color can be on the hair until I switched over from it. I used to use that exact shade and now I use ion blue black—I think my hair is in better condition for it.

the olaplex no. 3 will probably stop your breakage after 1 or 2 uses. It’s just that good.
