Why do they always want to straighten us?

Because so many hair cutters don't know what to do with curls and waves, that's why. Plus, too many have their "granny glasses" on when they see a mature woman come along, and try to tame her...

Slipperiest conditioners

Oh no, about the glycerin!:( It seems that so much is either harmful to curls or color, or both!:( Also, here's a pet peeve, WHY don't companies make products for hair that's both curly AND...

Curl enhancer to wear UNDER LA Looks Sports Gel?

The Yes to Coconuts product sounds good!:) I think the SM Curl Enhancing Smoothie might be a little bit too heavy for my hair, as it's not coarse. I do have dense hair that's fine to medium in...

Curl enhancer to wear UNDER LA Looks Sports Gel?

@Wavycat: Is FSG flax seed gel? If so, I'm not into DIY these days - would rather just pick something up at the drugstore. What's the difference between EcoStyler and LA Looks Sports Gel. I have seen...

Slipperiest conditioners

Is the Giovanni 50/50 rich enough for color-treated hair? Looking for a good cheap r/o conditioner for my 2c-3a color-treated hair(it's bob-length). Thanks!:)

Curl enhancer to wear UNDER LA Looks Sports Gel?

Looking for something like this, to give my looser curl pattern more oomph, before applying the gel(which I've been using and loving for years now). Has to be a drugstore product as I'm on a STRICT...

Working out in the morning

Wow - a lot of you go to bed REALLY early! An early night for me would be anytime before 11PM. But then again, I don't have to get up early to start a job early, or have a long commute before the job...

Working out in the morning

I think it all depends on one's own rhythms, myself. There are those people who are all about the 7AM run, gym workout or yoga class, and there are those who can't face a workout until well into the...

Not for you!!

Let me count the things:
- no cool makeup tones whatsoever - I'm very warm-toned.
- bright lipsticks of any type
- most bright eyeshadows although I love the looks of them

How would you describe this hair type? Having trouble identifying

I'd say a lot of 2c with some 3a in there - mixed textures can be frustrating sometimes because they can behave really differently from day to day depending on humidity, products, how the hair is...

My skin is so dry I could scream

Skin does get drier with age for sure! In my case, my body is a lot drier than my face(although that's slowly drying out as well at age 68).

All the following statements refer to my body.:

Summer drugstore gel recommendation

LA Looks Sports Gel is popular here(it has level 10 hold which is their strongest). I've been using it for years myself and will never be without it!:)

Age spots

They're usually related to earlier unprotected sun exposure - a kindlier name for them is "sun spots". To me, the term "age spots" conjures up some depressingly spotted old lady who has tanned in...

Dry skin tips

For many years on my body, I either used extra-virgin coconut oil, or my own DIY shea butter-coconut oil body butter and that worked great(my husband still uses it), but in the last couple of years...

makeup mirror recs

I really appreciate people's suggestions, but I'm REALLY fussy about the mirror, and it has to be REALLY simple, as in, no bulky stand, and no lighting in it. It really has to fold flat, and yet has...

Gel only styling works better? What is my porosity?

I'm a gel-only for styling too. I have 2c-3a color-treated(but NOT bleached)hair, very dense, fine to medium in texture. Too many products "cocktailed" just leave my hair a dull, limp mess IMO.

@HtBlack: that looks like quite the recipe - beyond what I can really get into as I don't have all that stuff on hand. My shea butter body butter has just 4 ingredients and that's enough for me to...

How long did it take to go all gray?

It really all depends! How long one's hair is, if one is trying to grow out previously-colored hair. But if you're talking about just letting the greys come with hair that's never been colored,...

How bad is dying your hair, for real!

Yes, there seems to be a lot of fear around dyeing hair, as in, one thinks the minute one does anything, one's hair will be ruined for life, ESPECIALLY for anyone with wavy or curly hair. Or they...

Ditch the gels

Not for me - they'll have to pry the LA Looks gel from my cold little hands, as well as the occasional use of Suave Captivating Curls Mousse with it. My hair, 2c-3a definitely benefits from styling...

Question about hair type 2c or 3a

Only a 2c from some of the other posters? I'd say mostly 3a with some 2c myself. On a GOOD day my hair could look like yours does now.:) Modified CG(co-wash with a sulfate-free shampoo from time to...

Looser curl/wave pattern help
