Have you noticed a difference in the moisture department? I've been looking at reviews and I found a couple of people who didn't seem to have any change. I know I won't regret the Huetiful, but I'm curious.

as far as braidouts, since all of yall says it takes too long...looks like i wont be doin much of it cuz i aint got the patience nor time.

Hey Nubie!! I think finger detangling is more gentle, but if you don't have patience for braid outs you may skip this too. LOL!!

A bit off topic, but this is really erkin me. Mad

Life has definitely taught me better than to believe after 300+ years of African American slavery racisim has ended. A few months ago I applied for a job as a sitter. It's very flexible, pays greats, I can make my own hours, take whatever days off if need be, and I'm in school so it works. I've worked with children (infants on up) for my whole life, and I love it. It's very rewarding to know that you have impacted youth and young adults in a way that enhances their lives. Anyway, where I live there isn't a high black community. The members who I sit for are all caucasian and most if not all are pretty wealthy.

I know that they aren't used to having black people in such close proximity to their homes, because every event I go to I get the "OMG this chick is black!!" stare pale . One of the kids actually asked my why am I black????? pale I honestly, didn't know what to say, I have never in my life had to explain why I'm black. Over the past few months I've gotten used to it, even though its kind of irritating. I see them lock up their Macbooks and put away valuables before I leave and kind of do a visual strip search before I leave their houses. Whenever they do this I pull out my Macbook, and suddenly they have a surprised face like "Jeez golly, she can afford Apple products!?" Rolling Eyes

So getting to the point, my boss emails me and says that members are complaining to her about me saying that...wait for it...I DON'T FEED THEIR KIDS!!!!!!!!. Seriously???!!!!! WHAT THE CRACK MONKEY!! Evil or Very Mad With my background in youth work I know it's super important for the children to have a great time and for them to be fed. Why on God's green Earth would I not feed their kids??? She also said that some of them said I don't let their kids take naps. I'm like really lady, whenever I go to an event (usually when I'm watching a toddler or infant) I ask about their nap schedules. Usually they take them, others whine and cry because they don't want to and even when they don't want to I leave them in their crib just to see if they'll fall asleep. All of this I discuss with the parents. She's like we need you to ask questions if I'm unsure of things...like i don't do that already Rolling Eyes , because some of them have asked that you not come back. confused

This isn't the first time my boss has "brought things to my attention". But it was the last I can take. I really enjoyed that job and was going to give them my 2 weeks notice in March when I graduate, but I gave it to her a few minutes ago.

I'm not one to pull a race card, cuz I know some people blow this out of proportion sometimes. BUT, I'm pulling it cuz this mess is ridic...seriously.

Please tell me I'm not crazy...I own up to things I do wrong, but honestly I believe this had nothing to do with work ethic.

It seems like they're pulling things out of their ass because they're uncomfortable. Everyone is entitled to be uncomfortable but it's how you make it known that separates the classy folks from the jackasses. I wouldn't want to work there either.

That's sad. The majority of people I sit for are white and I've got piercings and purple locs. They pay me more than my going rate and refer me to friends left and right. Sad Some people really suck.

Shocked

you know what...its so unfortunate that yes in these days and times, even WITH a black president that racism still exists but ignorance is taught and starts at HOME!! for an innocent child who has no mind of their own to ask such questions like "why are u black" shows the lack of socialism on the parents part. i understand that u live in an area/state where black folks are rare but i just totally dont agree with chez whitey's subjecting their kids to only socialize with their own race, becuz as they get older or venture off into the world, they will ask that question to the WRONG black person and get hurt No kids only go off what they learn and see at home FIRST and i'd never want my kids to be so close-minded and oblivious to the world where they cant relate to anybody no matter what nationality, income or neighborhood they come from.

it really irks the shyt out of me for chez whitey to pre-judge and stereotype ALL black people and look down on us as if we cant read, have no type of intelligence or education and will never amount to anything more than violence and brokeness. the sad part is, the news portrays us this way and turn their heads away when we have a victory of young black kids making history and excelling in college and schools.

do you know...i was listening to the radio last week and there was a program for young black girls to have the oppurtunity of a lifetime...to visit africa...all expense paid from donations and sponsors. the trip was geared towards 15 inner city girls. im thinking...wow, they must of had a hard time picking 15 cuz im SURE tons of girls applied for that spot... Very Happy

NO!!! they could barely get 15 girls to sign up so they ended up with 9...out of the 9 girls, ONE didnt go becuz she ran away from her foster home, and another ONE didnt go becuz she didnt want to fly Mad ARE U PHKN KIDDIN ME!!!! as a grown dmn woman i wouldve took out any ONE of those girls for a spot to be apart of something so huge and life changing and u bail out cuz ur dumb azz got a FEAR (which aint nothing but the devil grip) of flying??? yet if they offered these girls a trip to the BET music awards or a spot in a lil wayne video, these girls would be ON IT!! **sigh** im totally off topic but the fact of the matter is...although some of these "stereotypes" give chez whitey a reason and fuel the fire for racism it gives them no right to judge you and try and find a lame azz excuse to not want u around. now im sure your natural hair also scares them becuz they think we are "power to the people" and militant to be natural. best believe if u had a perm or long straight weave there would be no problem! Crying or Very sad

i think...nooo i KNOW u have a higher calling to do bigger and better things esp with kids. i've never really heard u talkin bout kids like that but i can tell u have a passion for it even with u being so young. u definitely have the patience. start ur own babysitting company or even after u graduate, take a chance and venture off into other parts of the country to establish urself and doing what you love. please dont let time pass you by and dont listen to any of those rude, ig'nant and racist chez whiteys tell u anything different that what u CAN do.

ok sorry im just rambling but i feel you and i really pray MY younger generation can get it together and prove chez whitey wrong. do i think racism will come to an end anytime soon??? nope! and i still have faith in my peoples to overcome

Sorry to hear that happened to you. That's terrible! Stay positive and I'm sure you'll find another job where they appreciate you for what you do and not what you look like.

BTW I didn't say what I said in my earlier post to brag. I just...not all of them are like that. And if you have a fire for this, which it seems like you do, don't get discouraged.

Thanks ladies, I appreciate your words. I am not discouraged at all, I just found it unfortunate that we still have to deal with this. I know not everyone is like that, I have met some awesome people of another complexion that I truly respect. I am already a part of an organization back in my hometown that does youth work with inner city teens, have been for the last 7 years, so this job wasn't a fall out. I just needed the money, and felt I would be comfortable with the children. It's all good, I'm not losing any sleep.

I'm sorry this happened to you. I remember when I was growing up, I hung out with alot of white people. I went to one of my friend's houses for a sleepover. I was the only black girl in attendance, and outside of my friend, I didn't know the rest of the girls. When night came and we were getting ready for bed, I came in the room and the lights were off. One girl said "Why do you have on stockings?" I was like "huh, I don't". She proceeds to say "Oh, I forgot you were black." stunned. What could I even say? Anyway, this reminded me of this. Glad you're feeling ok about it though. It's just sad that this goes on still. They're clearly making excuses.

Re: .:Eden:. Curly Q Twist Out

Post by .:Eden:. on 25th February 2011, 1:40 pm

Hi everyone!!!!

WARNING: THIS POST WILL BE REALLY LONG...sorry

I know it has been almost 3 months since my last update, but for those of you who are in college you get the idea. I have been lurking and I see a lot has been happening with ya'll: 2nd big chops and hair dyeing LOL. Anyhoo I have a few hair updates as well as some product reviews to share.

SCHOOL
My graduation date is June 17 run

HAIR
I am currently 16 months natural YAY, and my hair is doing pretty well. I have mainly been protective styling, with the occasional free hair day once in a while.

My hair started showing its shape in Dec, which I was really excited about!


It's getting bigger, and hanging longer with the help of braid outs. I only wear braid outs when I wear my hair out now. I like them better on me than twist outs.


I did a protective style a while back. These are fluffy twists, they were ok but I wouldn't buy this type of hair again. Nevertheless, I loved the style.


Right now I am wearing twist updos.

PRODUCT REVIEWS
Huetiful Hair Steamer: Well, I have been using this thing since early December, and it has helped my hair. It is not out of this world oh my gosh I won a million dollars wonderful, but I do notice a difference when I don't use it. This is not money wasted (even though it was a gift). Like many have said in their reviews, you have to plop all your hair towards the top because the back doesn't get a lot of steam. I recently saw a review by westNDNbeauty on her blog Confessions of a Blog Vixen where she believes that in order for the Huetiful to give you the best results you should use oils. I plan to try that this weekend to see if it has any impact. Other than that I like the Huetiful.

Burt's Bees More Moisture Raspberry & Brazil Nut Shampoo: I wanted a readily available ph balanced shampoo for the longest, and I finally found it. My hair is continuously cleansed without the stripped feeling. It still feels soft and supple afterwards, which is great.

Silk Elements Megasilk Moisturizing Treatment: LAWDHAMERCY!!!!! This stuff is better than Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose. YESSSSSS IT ISSSS!!!! At least for MY hair it is. My hair is super thirsty everyday all day, and my deep conditioner (AOHSR), was just not satisfying her needs. westNDNbeauty, who swears by this deep conditioner convinced me to try it out. When I say my hair is soo moist after it is unbelievable. I was able to stretch the amount I have to remoisturize my hair to about every 4 days from 2 days or even 1 after I wash, condition, and moisturize. Loo from Heathly Hair and Body said if a moisturizer doesn't give you long lasting moisture (she can actually go a full week) then it's not a good one for you. I am a believer.

Chicoro's Moisturize Drenched Pre-Poo: This has definitely amped up my moisturizing process 100%. I receive her newsletters, and she shares some valuable information. For those of you who do not know who Chicoro is I encourage you to check her out here

Ingredients you will need:

In a bowl mix

· ½ cup of aloe vera juice or whole leaf aloe vera

· 1-2 tablespoons of your favorite oil (wheat germ, olive, safflower, walnut etc) I just use coconut

In a separate Bowl melt

· Food grade coconut oil (1/4 cup)

· Sit the bottle or jar in hot water- do not put in microwave or on the stove!
Remember, everyone's hair has different needs. You may need more or less of this mixture. Or, your hair may not like this at all. None of these will irrevocably change your hair. Thus, you just need to wash out the mixture if your hair doesn't like it.

1. Using your fingers, separate your hair into 4- 8 sections. If your hair is caked with hard product, rinse your hair first. Gently handle the first section. First, smooth the hair in a downward direction. You are just trying to make sure that all the hair is going in one direction. You don't need to completely detangle the hair at this point.

2. Dip your hair in the bowl of aloe vera and oil or cup your hands in the mixture and transfer it to the section onto your hair. Work it through. Get the aloe vera/oil mix into your hair from root to tip. Make sure it is moist throughout the sectioned hair. If your hair is long enough, twist it and wrap it around like a bantu knot. If it is not, try to twist it and move it out the way. Repeat until you have done this to each section.

3. You should have a head full of aloe vera mixed with oil twisted sections. Go back to the first twist you did. Undo it, pour the liquid coconut oil in your hand and work through the section. Re-twist it and repeat on whole head. Place a plastic shower cap on your head for 15-60 minutes. Your moisturizing pre-poo is complete!

Tangle Teezer: I have been a devout finger detangler since July 2010. I recently ordered the Tangle Teezer, and I can agree with how easy it is to detangle with it. I, however, am shelving it for good. After using it I saw an increase in SSK's and even a few splits (CurlyNikki recently posted about her splits too). I have fine strands as well so this may only be an issue for people who fine strands, idk. Nevertheless, I do not know why I tried to fix something that was never broke. Finger detangling does take longer, but I do experience less breakage and I have better curl definition, and I also saw that my strands have become thicker since incorporating this into my regimen. If anyone wants a TT, I'll be willing to let you take it off my hands free shipping!

Diva Cup: Sensitive Material...This isn't hair related, but it has saved me a whole lotta $$$$ so I thought I would share. When my unwanted monthly friend comes to visit me, she is more on the heavy side. Because of this I have to stock up on quality pads (I used Always), which add up espcially when I buy them frequently. I was introduced to the Diva Cup a few months ago through YouTube, and this thing is a LIFESAVER!. I bought mine at whole foods for about $25, now before you think it is too much consider this. If you add the cost of how many pads or tampons you buy a year and subtract $25 or so from that amount. You are saving yourself a lot of money. The cup is made of medical grade silicone and is very flexible. They have 2 sizes Model 1: For women under 30 years old who have never delivered vaginally or by ceasarean section and Model 2: For women over 30 years old and/or for women who have delivered vaginally or by c-section. It takes some getting used to especially if you are not comfortable exploring your nether parts, but it really isn't a big deal. For those of you ladies who still hold your v-card it can be a bit uncomfortable at first, but with practice it becomes easier. There are other brands out their for people who are smaller, bigger or more shallow down there as well. I didn't want to be bothered, because it can get a bit confusing so I just went with the Diva brand. The best thing about this is that I NO LONGER HAVE CRAMPS
.
I still have a bit of "pressure" if you know what I mean, but my cramps are gone. I did some research and I found that this doesn't occur with everyone, but a lot of the women who use menstrual cups are fortunate to have this happen.

I know that was a lot, but for those who read it I hope you enjoyed it. See you around the block! Very Happy

Hey Eden,

Congrats on your upcoming graduation, hair progress & less cramping. I've been interested in the Diva Cup for a while. I need to just take the plunge.

That pre-poo sounds great. Looks like I need to check out Chicoro more often. Like you, I am subscribed to her so I get the emails. Thanks for sharing!

Hey Twin!!!!

.::shaking like Pookie from New Jack City::. I was doing so well with my PJism until I came over here and read those reviews. I'm in the PJ Rehab Challenge and haven't made any purchases since early December. I know it's because our hair is so similar....::taking slow deep breaths::... I've heard nothing but good things about the Silk Elements Moisturizing Treatment. I will try it after I use up my Bee Mine Deep Conditioner....which will be a while....sigh...

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation (one day before my wedding anniversary), your AMAZING growth (it's so funny how much our hair looks alike), and no cramps!!

Your hair looks GREAT!! I love the shape too and that pin up do!! Were your twist done on blow dried hair? Your makeup looks REALLY good in the first pic!!! I will learn to wear eyeshadow properly one day.

I've only used my tangle teezer twice (both time on dry hair). After reading Nikki's review, I will be shelving mine too because I have fine strands too. I just started finger detangling only this month (I'm in the step away from your comb challenge). I'm starting to see less hair loss. cheers Yes, it does take longer but I will stick with it a while longer. I will be trying Chicoro's moisturizing pre poo on my next wash day! I hope it helps with detangling (I detangle before I wash my hair).

Anywho, don't stay gone so long next time Wink

E-DENNNN!!!

I love love love how thick & yummy your twist outs & updos look Smile Your hair has filled out so much! you look gorgeous Smile i also like your big turquoise (?) ring! I'm really intrigued by you saying that the Diva Cup = no cramps, but i'm still kinda scared to try it. Its good to finally hear something about the Huetiful that is a ::concrete:: opinion...it should be easier for me to stop trying to talk myself into how it really IS a "necesstity" (when i already know that it isn't!)

I hope you're enjoying your last semester! What plans do you have afterwards? Can't wait to see the graduation pics.... you're ALMOST THERE!!!

--> its funny you mentioned the A.V ... i just heard someone on youtube talking about benefits of aloe vera in a pre-poo. I will def be trying it soon, since my hair loves AV and EVCO, this seems like the ::perfect marriage:: What's the purpose of applying the pre-poo in two diff parts thought (separating the EVCO?)

In case we don't see you again before the big day CONGRATS & take lots of pics for us. Spring/Summer graduation ceremonies are always the best flower

Hey Eden!

Your hair is gorgeous and I love the shape! Congratulations on your upcoming graduation. I've heard of the diva cup and I would love to get rid of cramps but that thing still scares me No . I remember reading about Chicorro's Pre-poo and I actually used it a couple of times and liked it. Not sure why I stopped but I definitely need to start using it again.

Congratulations on your upcoming graduation (one day before my wedding anniversary), your AMAZING growth (it's so funny how much our hair looks alike), and no cramps!!

Your hair looks GREAT!! I love the shape too and that pin up do!! Were your twist done on blow dried hair? Your makeup looks REALLY good in the first pic!!! I will learn to wear eyeshadow properly one day.

I've only used my tangle teezer twice (both time on dry hair). After reading Nikki's review, I will be shelving mine too because I have fine strands too. I just started finger detangling only this month (I'm in the step away from your comb challenge). I'm starting to see less hair loss. cheers Yes, it does take longer but I will stick with it a while longer. I will be trying Chicoro's moisturizing pre poo on my next wash day! I hope it helps with detangling (I detangle before I wash my hair).

Anywho, don't stay gone so long next time Wink

That PJISM is somethin else lol! That's the thing about being in school, you do not have money to be spurlgin on Oyin Handmade, Shea Moisture, and Bee Mine. Actually let me stop cuz I spend way too much on beauty products and accessories so I can't talk silent

I've been dabbling in makeup after a Sephora splurge a couple months ago. I had to get my breakouts and hyper-pigmentation together first. The best eyeshadows to get are the ones with the instructions on wear to place the colors. I am makeup illterate so this really helps a lot. Oh and the other thing was to invest in good brushes which will aid in the application. I bought the sephora set (I think it's the travel size idk) for about $30. I'm still experimenting with eyeshadows, and after school is out I'm going to look into some colored lipsticks. The older I get the more I realize I am turning into my mother Razz ...not a bad thing.

As far as my hair goes. I plop after I wash and condition until my hair is 80-90% dry. I then twist/braid my hair. I do this to prevent shrinkage, although I hate how anorexic my twists are when I do this. I pin them up anyway, so I guess it doesn't matter, but I am tempted to try them on wet hair again.

cheers Finger detangling is a life savor. I lose less hair as well, and it forces me to be gentle on to hair. I start detangling as I apply the pre-poo, and finish up any extra while I am conditioning. I'm sure you'll like Chicoro's pre-poo, if you can I would recommend doing it overnight. I think you'll get the most out of it that way.

I love love love how thick & yummy your twist outs & updos look Smile Your hair has filled out so much! you look gorgeous Smile i also like your big turquoise (?) ring! I'm really intrigued by you saying that the Diva Cup = no cramps, but i'm still kinda scared to try it. Its good to finally hear something about the Huetiful that is a ::concrete:: opinion...it should be easier for me to stop trying to talk myself into how it really IS a "necesstity" (when i already know that it isn't!)

I hope you're enjoying your last semester! What plans do you have afterwards? Can't wait to see the graduation pics.... you're ALMOST THERE!!!

--> its funny you mentioned the A.V ... i just heard someone on youtube talking about benefits of aloe vera in a pre-poo. I will def be trying it soon, since my hair loves AV and EVCO, this seems like the ::perfect marriage:: What's the purpose of applying the pre-poo in two diff parts thought (separating the EVCO?)

In case we don't see you again before the big day CONGRATS & take lots of pics for us. Spring/Summer graduation ceremonies are always the best flower

*Waving* HIIIIIEEE KEAA!!

Thick..really?? I actually wish it was thicker or even more dense, but that's another story LOL. Oh and the ring, is compliments of Forever 21, they are by far the best place for accessories.

I know a lot of people are skeptical of the Diva cup, but I can honestly say that I don't dread my time of the month anymore Laughing .

Someone asked a similar question about why apply the oil after and this was Chicoro's response:

I mix aloe vera, oil and glycerin together. I use about 1 cup of aloe vera and 1/8 cup of oil and 1/8 cup of glycerine. This is what I consider basically my water based product. (I don't use olive oil too much anymore. I prefer sunflower, a...vocado, walnut or safflower. )

If I am doing a pretreatment, I put this on dirty hair. Then I let that soak in for about 5-20 minutes. Next, I place my liquid coconut oil on my hair.

When I mix these particular ingredients all together, then I usually get greasy hair. This way, it optimizes the moisture I receive on my hair. The aloe mix provides the moisture and then the coconut oil by itself provides lubrication without leaving my hair greasy and hard.

For protecting my hair, after I wash, I use the same aloe vera mix. That is the moisture as aloe is water based. Then, I put either unpetroleum jelly on top of that or petroleum jelly.

This is what I prefer. Do an experiment. Mix aloe vera, a bit of oil, glycerine and lots of melted coconut oil and put it on dry hair.

Then go to another section. Do it the way I suggested in layers. If your hair feels the same and see what results you get. For me, doing an aloe mix FIRST, then putting on coconut oil gives my hair a better result. It is not the only way to do things, though.


The Hueitful IS NOT an accesorry, but if you do want it then have someone buy it as a b-day or christmas gift. My mother bought it for me for my birthday, it was all I really needed wanted anyway.

I am soooo happy to almost be finished with college for good. It was a long journey, and this last few months are excruciatingly longer. The anticipation is killing me bounce . I plan on moving back to the East Coast and starting my business. I was fortunate to receive an investor so I started buying materials already. Definitely look forward to grad-day pics. I have more time now to swing by more frequently, so I won't be a stranger any longer.

I remember reading about Chicorro's Pre-poo and I actually used it a couple of times and liked it. Not sure why I stopped but I definitely need to start using it again.

HIIIIII KC!

Thank you thank you thank you I love you

Definitely try Chicoro's pre-poo it's very yummy. I recommend letting it sit over night, if you can.
