The New & Improved Say It I Dare You

My sister perms her new growth every 5 weeks...period, no if's and's but's about it. 3-4 weeks in she is complaining about her new growth and I understand what she means. Some people don't like the "feel" nor the look of new growth. Others find it difficult to handle and freak out. What boogles me is those who have been transitioning for over a year and are stillllll complaining.

I wish Obama did an ad where he points to the White House & other popular monuments in America & says "Always remember, you didn't build that, slaves did."
or
"Imagine your business with no employees or customers. Still think you built that on your own?"

I need to stay away from non-hair topics

why are folks always worried about why someone else's hair isn't growing (despite the fact that they're clearly keeping it that length on purpose) when they haven't been able to pass SL for two years themselves?! throwing shade will not help your hair grow, boo.

not everyone is on a freaking growth journey.

Cuz they ain't seen nothing yet. If you have a panic attack at the first sign of a curl or kink then how da hell you go natural. That is like someone who always faints at the sight of blood saying they want to be a surgeon.

The first 2 or even 4 months are really an adjustment, especially for those who wore a relaxer for more than half their life. I would grant them that whole "freak" out pass. Nothing past 4 months though.

ETA: I am a stickler for sleek edges...if they are seen, like a bun or just pulled back, my edges are laid down with gel or a pomade. That's been my preference from back when I wore my hair straight.

idk why i EVER post on that forum. some ppl are just so frustratingly stupid.
President Obama related to country

Apparently President Obama is related to the country's first enslaved man. So guess he's got some tie to USA black slave history after all. Very interesting.
My baby got some Motor City hair at crown, some Shy-town tangles at the front edges, with nappy arse Hotlanta sprinkled around the kitchen.

I don't understand the point of identifying one's hair as "mixed" or "biracial". Every time I see a question with the title "Can anyone help me control my biracial curls?", I cringe.

i need to start practicing living like a broke person w/ bills. i transferred a huge chuck of my paycheck into savings (for imaginary bills/saving for moving out) and had a tiny panic attack lol. funny thing is i would save a lot money if i wasn't such a fat arse. the bulk of my money goes to food. now that i have an office, i can restore my water intake, which will eliminate my random sugar cravings. i can eat lunch at work, and bring one of the plates from dinner home to eat. then i'll just have oatmeal or something for breakfast. all that so i have extra money to buy some clothes for work (like 85% of my wardrobe is not allowed there lol).

i can be a grown up. i can do it.
lololol Im sorry but I laughed so hard at this.

Then there are the tortilla wraps you can do. Grill up or saute some chicken and veggies and season with a light dressing and put in fridge. Next morning..scoop some into the wrap with a bit of lettuce and chopped tomatoes and roll it up. You can slice it ...it's cute that way. My son likes to see all the colors.

Always keep chopped veggies (a small thing of ranch dip..maybe the light kind) and chopped fruit on hand to go in their lunch. As well as yogurt, bananas, seedless grapes, and trail mixes...even dried fruits. Pita chips and dip like hummus. Nutella and animal crackers or graham crackers. You could also make cold pasta salads to put in there. Ceasar salads with grilled chicken!

If you have type 4 hair, you may not be able to get curl definition without braiding, twisting or doing bantu knots.
