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 more or less jump back on that train some time ago.  I figured that since hair is dead, it doesn't matter what I put on it, more or less.  Ever since I tried some Liv Creme hairdressing and some Moisture Max lotion, I haven't looked back.  I use those as my winter staples since shea butter is virtually worthless on my hair when the weather is cooler.
Shea butter by itself is pretty much useless on my strands too...they always felt gunky and weighed downDead.

I bought some Hawaiian Silky 14 in 1 this week and my hair has never looked and felt better...soft but not greasy, bouncy and moisturised and no tangles yaaaay!LOL 

IDGAF if the in ingredients are less than "natural"...whatever's good for my hair is good enough for me. It did take some "unlearning" though to realise that mineral oil isn't always the devil for natural hairLOL

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

This is simple guideline to what each hair type is.  It ranges from straight to kinky,coily hair.
Lots of people like to find out there hairtypes so they can figure out what different hairstyles will look like on them, what products will potentially help to deal with there type or some are just generally curious.

They say the best way to find out your hairtype is by freshly washing it and not apply any product to the hair afterwards.
It's easy if your natural as your has not being manipulated by chemicals etc. If your are relxaed or transitioning some find a little more difficult as the hair structure has been alterted but some claim they can figure it out from the new growth which comes in from the roots.
Hope that helps abit. Smile

I want to try her method of braiding because 2 strand twisting leaves me with no real definition right now.
