Products: Whatever works!
So I'm back again. I know that I posted here somewhere saying that I was going to stop neglecting my hair and hiding it under wigs, and I did, for about a month and then I had some sort of broke down and went back to my old habits of just cornrowing it up and leaving it like that. I didn't even dare wash it or moisturize it, which I know is bad, but I was just so frustrated and needed a break. About three months later I'm back and well, I don't think I'll ever go do it again. To make a long story short, the tangles were horrendous, and I lost a lot of hair. I probably need a trim as well to even things out . Anyway, I decided to just start trying out new products, because the products I have allow for too much frizz when I attempt to do braidouts. So I'm basically earning amazon gift cards througj a site called swagbucks since I don't want to burden my parents. I guess the main reason I posted this was for support, but ^^' if you have any product recommendations or tips for how to achieve a defined braidout I'd love that. :-)

Did you stop caring for your hair out of frustration or because you don't like dealing with hair overall I ask because many women who don't like dealing with hair love keeping their hair at twa length. I know you are looking for a styler but I don't like making those recs unless someone is able to keep their moisturized and you haven't said if you are. My feeling is moisturized hair is the cake and a styler is the icing. IMO if you don't have a good foundation underneath then all the gel or curling cream in the world isn't going to help you.
So tired. Late for work and ok with it. I went on a long road trip last week and I think my body is still recovering.

I'm thinking it's time to start Michelle on conditioner, since her hair been dry recently. Remember she's 17 months. Do ya'''ll think I should get baby conditioner ( I know of two all natural kinds) or will just my good ole Aussie moist do?

I had fun though it felt like a workcation. :-) I flew from Dallas to Phoenix, then packed and moved my aunt and cousin M over the next two days. While in Phoenix, I drove 3.5 hours to the Grand Canyon and then back. The day after I loaded the car and was one of two drivers on the 16-hour drive back to Dallas. I slept for three hours and then drove six hours to SE Louisiana. I had a good 4th of July and then drove half of the way back to Dallas.

I say start with a good conditioner. I use VO5 kiwi lime on a daily and Kenra for deep conditioning. The key to most of those styles like that is moister without greasiness. So start with a good conditioner.

I had already seen that student debate. The full version is on YT. It's a good watch. Two of them really floored me with their ignorance. One couldn't see the difference in using coconut oil versus a relaxer. The other attacked black Americans for not being able to trace our African roots to a particular group. I was impressed by the girl who said she grew up never seeing women with natural hair so it wasn't her norm.
@adthomas you learnt about natural hair perception in a group of 18-21 year olds in the UK.

About 8 years ago natural hair styles were fashionable in the UK as there were popular US music videos with them in.

Generally people weren't aware of what they were seeing but there are a fair few natural women 25+ in the UK.

I have always been interested in learning about others but a lot of the intolerance and misperceptions come from us NOT talking to each other or asking questions and making assumptions. Or what's worse someone thinks they know all about me because they had one conversation with one black American woman who is somehow our spokesperson for everyone.
I think I am in the middle of closing one chapter in life and am in the process of beginning another. That is a good thing. I feel like being adventurous and moving out of my comfort zone. I also feel like not being invisible anymore and to stop neglecting myself. I have tried a few thongs that haven't worked so now I'm rethinking my strategy. It should be fun!
