Same here. When one of my coworkers got the guts to ask about my hair one day, after I explained to her what it took to get it straight, she asked, "why would you go through all that trouble anyway?"

Now, my family is a whole other thing...

It's gonna be me and Bobeam poo bars, for the entire winter season.

Silk Dreams' Creme de la Silk is....

SO glad to have my kinks back. I missed them, while in a blown-out style (bun) after a length/ends check. I didn't feel right.

Oh well. We all have a different sense of humor.

I can't deal. I'm not used to service so fabulous.

For everyone who thinks only black women get taken for a ride regarding expensive hair products...behold...Alterna Caviar Anti-Aging Seasilk Oil Gel (oh word, we have anti-aging for hair now too!), weighing in at $28 for 3.4 ounce, ie, it would last me like one use and a half.

Who and the what, now?
And why are some of the items bolded? Are they all 'cones? (I don't know what 75% of those ingredients are so )
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!
^^^Most were cones, others were glycols and acrylates, which are also considered "bad" ingredients to some. Now, I don't believe in bad ingredients...but $28 for 3.4 oz?? Giiiiiiiirl.....bye.
Sometimes my hair feels rough even if it's moisturized. I don't get it.
As I touch up these braids, I realize I have had braids or kinky twists since july. I'm too lazy to take them all out at one time, maybe I'll take them out for new years or better yet springtime. Also, using conditioner as a leave in is working nicely.
Here I am sectioning my hair to convert WnG to braidout and I created an edgy style I like. LOLOL!!!

Crazy....

That awkward moment when you're detangling, you put down your hairball and you can't find it 2 minutes later. *what demon dragged it away??* O_0
