Welcome to CS...

I think you have a beautiful head of curls. I would rock my wNg and be on my way. When I bc'ed I wanted to do a wNg so bad I didn't know what to do.

Glad you are here and I look forward to following your journey!!

i haven't updated in like a week because a.) nothings really exciting about a WnG b.) i'm not really feelin my hair as of late... it was acting real funny and not responding to products like it use to...i trimmed a few pieces and that helped a little bit but not really...and idk what i did but for a minute my hair felt like cheap barbie hair in the back, and on the left in the front its a patch of hair near my edges (idk if its "scab hair" or what) but it feels like some 4z hair that doesnt retain moisture at all for more than 5 minutes...it was always drier and less curly than the rest but it got worse sometimes its all wiry like a brillo pad. i was co-washing more often b/c i thought my hair would be more moist, but its actually getting drier i think. my mom only co-washes about once a week and her hair is not as dry as mine and it seems like its growing faster too. so i think i'm gonna try co-washing only once or twice a week now...oh and the other day i picked out 2 day old WnG and wore my hair out the house in a little afro (as opposed to a defined WnG). i never thought i would do that cuz i always said my hair was too short to wear in a fro like that, but it was kinda cute.

i shampooed with a mix of giovanni 50:50 and castile soap and i think i put too much of the castile soap in there (even tho i diluted it) over a week ago...and i didnt DC afterwards which is a big no no but i was short on time...lastnight i cowashed w/ aussie moist & i DC'd with lustrasilk cholesterol and used heat for about 20 minutes and left it in overnight...i didnt rinse it out yet but i hope it helps

i rinsed out the lustrasilk cholesterol and my hair feels pretty ok so all is not lost lol. i usually shake the water out a lil and then put my products in but since im gonna go to sleep soon n i didnt want to sleep with a wet head i decided to dry my hair with a t-shirt b4 i put the products in. i probably wont do that again.

b4 i rinsed out the conditioner (it was super smushed cuz i had on a plastic cap under a scarf all day):


its hard to get the back of ur head lol:





after i rinsed it out (dnt mind the lack of earrings lol its almost bedtime):
dripping wet


shirt-dried


after i put in a little cantu shea butter leave-in and sealed with castor oil and coconut oil




randoms from last week & this week:

oh & have yall seen the youtuber longhairdontcare2011? =O i want her length...but then again i know i probably wouldnt be able to handle all of that...it is gorgeous though...she said she blowdries once a month and flat irons about 2x a year...at first im like thats not alot really...but then i thought she's been natural for 6 yrs so she's used heat like 84 times!...thats alot to me...you can tell her hair is "trained" and she even said it...and trained to me = damaged. her curl pattern has loosened into more like waves now instead of curls but it still looks really good in braid/twist outs.

Agreed. A girl from my elementary school graduating class (lol) has AMAZING hair. It's probably the same length, if not longer, than Longhairdontcare's. She had a freaking WAIST LENGTH ponytail when I saw her a few weeks back I wish we had been in the same class in 5th grade, so I could ask for some hair tips cause her moms hair is long too!

Your hair is looking fantastic! Love the curls

Next time you try coils, do them smaller. Hope this helps.

Hey Iri,

Your curls are beautiful. I agree with Lynn. When your hair is shorter you have to do the coils MUCH smaller. You can try separating the curls now and it should look like a cute roller set. A head full of curls.

ok i didnt have to wash my hair this morning which means i got to school a few minutes early and had time to snap some pics in the car. i know yall have seen my WnG b4 but i was bored...plus i rarely get 2day WnGs that still look nice. i now know the key to stretching WnGs...baggy at night. i used to do it when i 1st BCd like 2x a week, but i fell off. but now im going to do it probably everynight. i just spritz with my new random concoction spray and seal with an oil then put a plastic cap on and then my bonnet or scarf.

the spray i made really moisturizes good and defines. it was totally unplanned. i usually mix HETT and water in a spray bottle which i use to refresh my curls when theyre looking parched, but i only have a few squirts left, so i used HEHH instead. then a couple of days later i was gonna make my 'hair lemonade' but i didnt feel like emptying/cleaning another spray bottle so i just poured some aloe vera gel into the HEHH/water mix. then i put a couple drops of tea tree oil in b/c i think its a preservative, then i put enough drops of lemon EO to cover the smell of the TTO, & then i thought i probably need a carrier oil in their so i squeezed some drops of my castor/olive mix in there for good measure.

anywho this morning i just spritzed with plain distilled water and rubbed in a little cantu shea butter leave in & elasta qp feels like silk. i forgot to seal but i'll probably do that when i get out of class and go home.
