I'll definitely join as well. I only straighten my hair twice a yr and just did so last month so I won't be straightening again until the end of May. I'm at full APL when straight so I'm hoping to be at BSL by June/July. I mainly protective style anyway 100% of the time but I've been experimenting with color a lot lately and with the recent straightening job have gotten out of my weekly DT regimen so I plan on getting back to my regular healthy hair care activities.
I have a pretty simple routine that I alternate every week during the month.
Week 1: DT overnight, co-wash & acv rinse
Week 2: DT overnight, wash, condition
Week 3: DT overnight, co-wash & acv rinse
Week 4: PT, wash, DT under hooded dryer
Then I style into a bun or bantu knots (most recently I wet bun since the summer time and it stays that way until I take it down to DT and wash for the next week). I like to keep things simple! I look forward to growing with you ladies and gentlemen if any join us and seeing everyone's progress!
Hair Type: A head full of THICK, normal porosity curls/coils that I am TOTALLY in LUV with!
(Transitioned for 16 & 1/2 months)
Loving: MC LI Condish, Raw shea butter, Coconut & Grapeseed Oil, SM raw shea butter shampoo,HEHH Conditioner, Braggs ACV & Egg, Mayo & EVOO PT's
so im stalking the nice pics on this thread and thought id add a thought of my own. i made a really nice style today, it was protective style and i wouldnt mind seeing how long i can do it for.
its like a braid in the back of the middle of my head, then i wrapp the braid around its self, and pin it with bobby pins. i could also pin it different ways. i really liked it. will be doing it again tomorrow.
my hair: 3b, high porosity, high density and coarse hair (i think i finally figured that all out)
my hair loves conditioner only styling!
Oils and my own procuts are my hairs best friend
my hair goal length is bra strap length when curly.
So I was two inches away from making the bra strap challenge (straightened) and went to the Dominican salon to get it straightened out, and after she straightened my hair she cut (without my permission) 6 inches off! I was hot because I know I did not have 6 inches of dead ends.
That is so sad. I'm so very sorry that chicken head chopped your beautiful mane. I really hope you said something to her. It really gets under my skin, when others who are trusted w. Our hair (when we do decide to go) completely get out of line bc they don't know what they are doing, or they are completely envious. That's been my experience with hair. My opinion no one, will love your hair, the way it deserves to be loved. Except by you.
