Renpure Organics Luxurious Argan Oil Shampoo

@Myrna: I don't go with the Renpure conditioner because it was too lightweight for me - it seems that I do better with richer conditioners, but at the same time I don't want them to leave my hair...

cutting my own hair and english braids

Don't worry about the length of the braids! In fact, one can expand one's definition of "the proper length" and just try in one's own hair. Get creative! What I've been doing is add random small...

bangs with a wavy/curly bob

I have bangs with my inverted bob and they work just fine. But I do have mixed 2c-3a hair. Going without bangs for me is a big no-no. What a lot of people don't know is that for mid-life women and up...
