Sorry for your loss Vegas. Some people are too busy thinking of their own issues to function well at funerals. I pray you and your sister continue to have the strength to help each other through this.

Everything in moderation?
About my hair:
weekly shampoo-HE Honey I'm Strong
daily conditioner-HE Honey I'm Strong (use as li)
go to style-Pocahontas braids
I have to go to New Orleans next month for a wedding.


Im debating whether to take my son to benefit him going other places, or to let loose and have fun by myself lol
For me, if I can tell it's a twistout/braidout (I can see visible parts and the "curls"/"waves" look artificial) it just doesn't look good. A lot of the time curls look manufactured, yet flattened.. If you want it to look curly you have to put some effort into it. One of my pet peeves is when people compare their twistouts to somebody's natural texture, which I have seen IRL. If you are 4b and you braid your hair and take the braids down, it is not "3c." It is 4b hair that has been braided and taken down.

I have seen some hair that looked good and the person said it was a twistout, usually because they did covered the "parts" and sprayed with water or something to make it not look like they just took some twists down with no other efforts.

I also could not imagine putting in the effort for hours to twist my hair in order to take it out the next day. For me, I wear twists to keep my ends detangled for a month, so taking the twists out is counter productive if I don't want knots on my ends.

Maybe there's a time-worthy, beneficial method to these styles that I'm missing?

I'd say enough women on blogs, YT and RL get enough compliments on their "obvious" twistouts to make it clear that many people really like the way they look.

Personally, I twist my hair because I want to wear twists OR because I want to wear twist outs. Rarely does my decision have anything to do with "knots" on my ends. That's just not on my radar. I don't do protective styling. But that's not because I'm "missing" something. It's just that we like different things for our hair.

I don't understand, you don't do twist outs....ok, that's beautiful.

I do twist/braid outs but not because I want to trick folks into thinking I have 2c hair and im sure the vast majority of people who do twist outs feel the same way. I don't protective style because I don't like the look of twists or braids and its boring to me to 1. keep the same hair style for longer than a week and 2. spend all that time doing said hairstyle. Ehhh, its cool, you like it though.

I'm very sorry for your loss, vegas_curls.

I can't comment on doing twist-outs, but I think they look really nice. I just figured it was a specific look that some people liked, not that anyone was trying to make their hair look like a different curl pattern.
@Vegas_Curls...so sorry about your loss. Try to tune out the madness, and grieve...in peace. Sending prayers of comfort and healing your way.

Okay... I caved and took a look at Love and Hip Hop Atlanta. This is thee most ratch-it. Yes.. I said ratch-it mess like ever. I don't under someone's mother being so darn ratch-it like this.. I mean really. Seriously ? I mean the way these people act, speak to each other, live, sound, and disrespect their bodies and life is unreal to me.

I mean wow.. I can't. And these women are absolutely pathetic going for this BS and these men are just the most filthy low class heathens I've ever had the misfortune of witnessing ...a total mockery. No self respect worth a damn..money, clothes, and hoes (or being one) seems to be their mantra. SMDH.

That said I cant understand how some people complain about the behavior on these shows yet still watch. Don't they understand that all the networks care about is ratings which = advertising dollars so if people watch the shows will not only they keep doing what they are doing but the networks will create more like shows with people who will purposely act more over the top than the last person to get their "celebrity" status and to draw more viewers.

And I think there will always be an audience for these sorts of shows. Any show where people (especially black people) are acting immoral and low there will be people that will watch just so they can commentate on the ridiculousness of it and of course laugh. There is a reason Real Housewives of Atlanta became the most popular one..but certain people can't seem to comprehend some basic facts. But I do, they'll never log my tv as having turned it on again.

I like Tia and Tamera and Chicagolicious though. LOL!
Thank you ladies for all of your e-hugs, prayers and kind words of condolences. I really do appreciate it!

Big hugs and kisses back to you!

I do twist out to elongate my hair and keep it from tangling as it dries. I am one of several people on here who has said my curl pattern on a fresh twist out looks no different than a wash and go. It takes me 45 minutes to twist my whole head which to me is not a long time. I dont like leaving twists in for more two days because I cowash often. I dont protective style because im a heavy shedder and detangle almost every day or I get knots/tangles. Plus i dont like ps.
