ur hair in that picture looks just like mine. i dont think ur hair will ever drop. i dont have a twa anymore and my hair still doesnt drop.

i think you should stop pretending like you have curly hair. we dont all have it.

What i really meant is the look you get when you use a gel, not really hang-time...

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

Now, if some parts of your hair are curly, you may or may not be able to get the other parts to curl some. I have primarily 4a with random 2a patches (and it's not heat damage, I haven't used any heat other than DCing for a year and it just grows that way--c'est la vie). What I do is split the hair into 6 sections--you may need less--making sure each section is well conditioned. I use a generic Denman to brush through, which causes clumping and helps curl definition for me. I then take each section, put a small amount of gel or other holding product, on it, and separate out the curls, either using my fingers or the tightlycurly.com method. This helps to give definition to the very loose curls and they curl up like the rest of my hair. This may or may not work for you, particularly given your length, and it's not a wng process. It takes more time than that. Try it and see.

Yo..I believe I got da gout..my big toe been hurting like a mug lately..where Naturalista at ? Wait..wtf..what thread is this..dayum..I thought I was in Say It.

Yo..Naturalista...Naturalista ...
Oh my goodness!!! I miss all the goodies. I couldn't stop rolling with laughter. Men that vegan Mac and cheese looks good. Thumbs up. OP don't get mind. Like everyone else said you need to be patient and its takes time for your hair to hang. As for curl definition try ecostyler gel. Its seem to help lots of people. Hope that helps.

So who wants to teach me how to make that yummy burritos?? Hope I spelled it right. I love Mexican food

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.
