ok-------never again will i even attempt to style on dry hair!!! not a good idea. i re-wet and played in my hair to use up my products. now i'm "allowed" to get something else. yay!
i cannot live without my aviators, my boston terrier, biology and black tights.
RT: Why do I know where every Ricky's in this city is? I think its definitely part of a larger problem.

RT: I bought some KCCC from Ricky's today and it cost $26 but they are charging $30 in Whole Foods. Why the price difference?

RT: I also repurchased DevaCurl Set It Free today, but I'm not really sure why I like it. I'm not a PJ anymore, so that can't be it.

RT: I so not feeling my hair these days. Just hurry up and grow back already dammit!

I just realized that I can't remember the last time I've used a comb. I use to faithfully comb my hair with every wash but I haven't in months now.

Me
Wore a wig last week to give my hair own hair a break. I couldn't even make it the full work week. By Friday, i was sporting my hair again. I was reading something on NC and I went to touch my hair, forgetting that my hair was hidden away, and was saddened. So I said bump this, give me back my curls and frizzies, this straight hair is for the birds. I think I will try a pony puff that is more similar to my natural hair, only bigger.
I'm still not sure how I didn't get whiplash from whipping around the extra fabric on my Satin Sakk when it first arrived. [I got a long cuz my preferred color was out of stock in the short and I'm impatient.]

Also, I don't know why the flexi-8 folk think the XL size is for dreads. It is perfect for me and my ponytail is NOT that big.
layer cake of tight, spongy and silky/thready S strands that kink more than they coil
spiced with a few spiral coils and non-curling waves
mostly medium and fine with a sprinkle of coarse strands
protein is yummy
I just moved and had to clean out my PJ cabinet. Oh the massacre! To lighten the trash bag, I flushed the contents of about 20 bottles of products that didn't work for me.

I should have flushed my Curl Junkie Banana condish because when I tried it again yesterday, my hair was instantly angry. It was softer after a shampoo than it was after that horrible condish touched it. *flush*

I need January to arrive with the quickness so I can re-up on my hair milk!

OK...I wanna BC but don't have the guts. My family says to leave it alone. I want to but my relaxed ends keep falling out. My hair was growing and looking healthy but I put too much protein on the straightened hair.

I want to try Henna, but I am apprehensive about it because my hair is way too thick now if it got thicker I think I would scream.

I love natural. But my hair is not the type of hair you want to be natural. My hair is super thick. I cannot get it to lay down for the headband. My hair pushes it up. Nothing can control this stuff. I am sick of looking at CurlieNikki's hair and her website. Her twist n curl sucked on my hair. I did it and then had to go into work that night. I was ready to cry. Plus my hair fell out in the back to the natural hair.

Thanks I feel better venting! I just wish there was a way to show my curls while cutting out some of the thickness. I have a lot of hair strands, thick, and kinky curly.

Regarding the big chop, why don't you cut off an inch or two every month until you are all natural?

What type of products are you using?

I am so sick of my hair GROW DAMMIT GROW. Right now I am sooo boring all I do is Wash, DC, Twist, bun or roll. I want my hair to be BSL like NOW. DaMM Longhaircareforum.com ugghhh

Ahhh now I feel better. I talk to the hubby about my hair anorexia but he really cant understand
I spend a lot of time thinking about BC'ing...my curly hair is so much easier to deal with than the relaxed...but is my head big? I don't know what to do without bangs...

How many products is too many products...

Why do these dudes like to keep touching my head...

Am I 3c, or really a 4a...and do I care?

Why is my dog staring at me...

Is this coffee making my head itch?

That oil I just applied to my ends smells divine!

I am so happy that my hair is growing, I pray I don't get post-partum shedding.

I pray the people I work with don't laugh at my three day old twists tomorrow at work Perhaps I will bun them.

Why is 4a/4b hair not considered "wash n go" hair?

It's still curly hair.. you wash/wet it, apply your products, and air dry just like anyone else. If you ask me this is another one of those stupid slavery era/good hair/bad hair demons that needs to be slayed.
