...has been annoying. I like her curly pic better but she looks high in those pics. Don't know that she is, but I don't like the whole "drugged out" look a la Robert Patterson.

I think it's her eye shadow.

Oh my goodness. Taylor Momsen is one of the sad pets of one of my favorite blogs, Go Fug Yourself.
They even did a lil slideshow for New York Magazine.

I really want the answer to the question: where are her parents?

wash and gos are a lifesaver omg. it's so hot i'm sweating bullets.
haha yeah you are right! i love the kccc i just noticed that the knot today alone defines my curls...doesn't keep frizz at bay but it sure defines!

i was in a rush and only used the kinky curly not today and it defined my curls. hmmm so i am wondering what is the point of the curling custard?

And out here when we get some unexpected humidity it is a trooper against it. Otherwise my hair would either fall or shrink up something outrageous. It keeps that from happening. I ahould have used it this week instead of that Donna Marie (which I like also, it just let me down in the humidity. Kinky-Curly Curling Custard is like my Fed Ex - when it absolutely positively HAS to get through the day and still look great)

I'm not quite sure how to phrase this or what exactly my point it is so Ill just 'talk" it out and see....

When people are transitioning they often reach a point where dealing with the two textures becomes to difficult (the hair also begins to break off, i guess) and they have(or choose to) BC to get rid of the chemical hair,which I get.


But why does it seem more acceptable for that to be considered "difficult" or hard to work with than when you are completely natural and STILL have two(or more) textures to deal with?


I know that's my issue, which one should I work with? The kinky hair or the curly?? Or do I even have two textures or is my hair/scalp damaged possibly? Split ends? psoriasis? Health issues?


IDK if this makes any sense but...

I transitioned long-term. Now that I'm all natural I still have really different textures living next to each other on my head. Both are difficult in their way, but I found the relaxed ends on my very tight curls far more annoying. My relaxed hair didn't curl up at all on its own. My hair wasn't long enough for updos during my transition. If my curly wet set went wrong it was a horrible hair day. Now I can do any of the following to blend: chop off the random loose wavy hairs, pick out the looser clumping curls, stretch the tighter curls, do some artful pinning, or put more product on the tighter curls. It's never a total disaster. Major effort vs. minor effort to get the look I want. Oh and the natural hair is not prone to breakage. My hair may be more prone to tangling because of multiple textures, but I still have hair after I detangle.

what you do with your hair is your own business but dont make it seem like my hair is hard to manage. Far from it , I didnt need any help with cutting down on the thickness of my hair.

1. I know how to detangle
2. I know how to take my time
3. I enjoy spending time doing my hair


Your struggle is not my struggle. Yes my hair is thicker than yours but do you hear me complaining about my hair . nope. I find it funny you moan about dealing with your hair when my hair scares everyone who even thinks of styling ( which wont happen because I do my own hair)


Stop making excuses for taking the easier road . LOL keep that life saver you call a deep conditioner when its really a chemical to yourself , I'm doing good over here.
Whoo hoo, Macy's gave me an on call sales associate position, which could turn into something more regular. I start training on the 19th.

yeah, the breakage seems to be the key with the transitioning two textures. I was wondering if those of us who have yet to find what works for our hair, does some of the difficulty lie in dealing with the two textures? I know that finding the proper moisture balance definitely is the key for me, I was wondering if that could be apart of the problem. Also some ppl claim to still have breakage even with PSing...idk?
I have FINALLY figured out the perfect way to set my twists for an awesome twist out!!! I can let go of my crutches that are scarves and headbands and wear my hair loose with confidence. Now....I'm afraid to sleep because I know the minute I tie my silk scarf on and lay down...it'll all go down the drain

Im NEW . . HI

I wish my transition would be over tomorrow and my ng will have grown 6 inches overnight.

I'm becoming insanely obsessed with anything hair.

After seeing how beautiful natural hair is, I wish I would have never relaxed.
The very first guy i've dated since being natural called it quits today. Tearing as I write this.
