I know it's more complicated than this, but I think a lot of sites/product lines are to blame with marketing things that are geard for natural hair to curly hair, like all natural hair curls and pudding will make that happen. It creates false expectations.

Or maybe folk go natural looking for curly with healthy completely not on the list of considerations, which leads to disappointment.

I had hoped that would come out sounding more profound, but alas, not so much, but I know some of y'all get what I mean. It makes me feel some kind of way. I know we all go natural for so many reasons, but in my Pollyanna mind, most of us do it so as not to be peeling off scalp burns from relaxers and to claim their independence of forced beauty ideals.

@beadybeads...glad to see you still here. I know your introduction was rough.

Have any of you ever tried the recipes on from skinnytaste.com? My resolution is to cook more and some of these recipes look yummy. I just don't know about a cabbage casserole. Sounds too healthy to be good.

but yes, I have done some of the recipes from skinnytaste. Honestly, it's hit or miss for me. I mean it's lowfat so some of the flavors are not there. The blogger does her best to make-up for the loss, but eh.

What's wrong with "jheri curl looking" hair? Some of us do have hair like that. eta: Not everyone gets to have 4-range curls.

Of course there are apparently differing ideas of what a "jheri-curl" looked like. lol there were size 3 jheri curls and size 4 jheri curls back in the day too. My hair even slicks back and waves like I'm laying down the sides of a jheri curl........smh
Hair type: the back and sides have small spiraly curls, the top and front just wave like, "hi! how ya doin?"

Condish: ElucenceMBC, HEHH, my kitchen mixes

Moisturizer: mixed spritz of: H20, aloe vera juice, honey, EVCO, ElucenceMBC

Curl Definer: H20 & a shake, my moisturizer mix.... or aloe vera/flax seed/ic fantsia gel if I'm not being lazy.

Styles: wash-n-go, twists just curl up like my wash-n-go

And like someone upthread mentioned...anyone can have curls that look jherri'd. I've seen some juicy looking ringlets and I've seen some juicy kinks. Or do you think of something else (other than juicy) when you hear jherri?
