hey sharmaine..

you can have the best of both worlds.  wigs are not made to "hide your hair".. they should be used as a "protective style" while your hair is growing out.

i bet you must have the 4b/c hair.  no curl pattern.. quite a few of us do.

also check out the stickies on how to take care of your hair.  take a look at the natural hair inspirations. as well as the wig section.

i have 4b/c hair that i swore would not grow. but thanks to these hair boards, trial and error, research, and inspiration, i'm on a healthy hair journey.. took me 7 years.. but with the information you have today? it won't take that long.

i wear wigs as a protective style after leaving weaves, so-called weavologists, relaxers/pressing/flat ironing, and extensive traveling/stress/traction alopecia/peri-menopause, and ignorance.

hating your hair right now is okay.. we have to start somewhere in our journey. 

If it's not "acting the way we expect it to" well, it makes a person pretty damn angry.

calling it nappy right now? is okay too.. that's how you feel.  nothing wrong with that.

i used those same words before starting my hair journey - and then some.LOL  It took me a couple of years before i stopped fighting it, and learned to work with it.  If you're at the beginning of your hair journey like i was? THIS BOARD is a good place to start.

On another famous black hair forum (LHCF)? i had to be "politically correct" while venting.  Dead

for my frustration? i had over 15 pages of being flamed off of LHCF for using "certain words/phrases" that pissed some members off - to this day..Confused

One of them came over to this board about 3-4 years later - STILL pissed off when she saw me posting - and tried to let me have it - AGAIN.  now how dumb/vindictive is that?

over time, you will embrace and nurture it into growing.. it doesn't really matter what color your husband is, what matters is he cares enough to TRY to give suggestions.LOL

At this point, hun, you don't have to start a post.. you'll have to start researching.  There's a lot of material right here at your fingertips.  Find the thread, and take in all of the information.. You'll do just fine.Wink

Tis a done deal! 3 years no heat anniversary celebrated by using heat!

I cleaned my hair, DC'd, detangled, rinsed, applied grapeseed oil and twisted into about 12 or 13 twists. I blow dried on damp hair using the tension method I learned from watching African Export vids. It didn't take too long and I didn't need a lot of heat. I used low heat on high and it got the job done. When I finished, my hair felt a little dry but the next day (today) it felt cottony and super soft. Heart

I'm going to try using butter and attempt a twistout for tomorrow. I'll post more styled pics (and in better light!) as I learn how to style this poofy hair.

A few non-styled pics of my hair with just grape seed oil in it.

Ladies thank you! I was so happy it turned out okay. It feels so weird to be able to touch my scalp with no resistance lol. You ladies and this section helped so much with my hair health.Heart

Finally had my pamper time with Cleo. When I saw her curls just a'poppin' and the small shed ball, and her bling.. I melted. So, far I'm diggin this straight hair with curly breaks in between Fall/Winter reggir! I missed my curlies too!

CC!!! CC!!! I FELL INTO THAT FLUFFY MASS OF GAWJUSNESS! I was with tge Hubby @ our tax guy when I lurked ya hair! I believe I squealed out loud in delight bc the Hubby shifted and looked down at me like- Wth?!
I LUVS HER!! SO FULL AND LONG AND HEALTHY!!

Hey Sharmaine! Femme gave you A WHOLE LOT OF REAL TALK!! She speams from hard earned experience and growth. I know that several other ladies have dropped you some jewels too, so I'mma give my.02 simple cents.

Please, ladybug, KEEP IT SIMPLE(in this hhj). Get you the basics- good clarifying poo, good protein co, good moisture condish- which at times can be used as a cowash/ leave in, sealant, oil, and deep co. Dry hair needs moisture. Cold/dry weather calls for sealing in that moisture. PS'ing can be your friend! Especially those ps's that allow you to moisturize all day while protecting it(like wigs while baggying), wet bunning, phony ponies (while baggying).

I LOVE this Carol's Daughter Healthy Hair Butter!! Outside of the earthy smell my twist outs come out AMAZING! I think I'm going to stick to blow outs with flat twists because my hair is so big, soft, fluffy and FULLY!! I mean, the CD butter doesn't give me insane definition but it it's soft, loose waves

I gotta get a nice picture .... I love it
