Sorry to hear about the breakage. Cause still in question?
I know for me, I had to turn my bonnet inside out for my fragile front edges. At night, the friction was a bit much.

No worries for you though, it was grow back nice and full. You are going all the right things. It may have just needed a good trim.Smile

Ladies, thanks for your votes of confidence. I think the breakage was due to a couple of things. The texture of my hair is coarser, at least I think so, in my slow grow/hard to retain length section than other areas. It loves thicker creams. Also, that same coarser area is porous so it is always drinking up what ever I put on it. I am going to be diligent about following the Chicoro method of sealing--water based, oil then cream. So far I am using aloe gro, KBB hair nectar (now called sweet ambrosia), coconut oil & MyHoneyChild Honey Creme. The honey creme is thick enough for the coarse areas and not too thick for the less coarse areas.

Here are a few pictures of my hair now.

Thanks ladies!

Twitter is cool to me. You can follow people based on your interests. It is similar to FB but more fun, IMO.

Tumblr is similar to a blog. The great thing is you can reblog what other people have posted. I like it because when I do not have anything to share, I can blog what someone else has posted. You can post & reblog photos, links, text, videos and audio.

Here are some better shots of my hair (sans all black outerwear).



Ladies, I really like MyHoneyChild's Honey Creme. It is super thick but emulsifies nicely. I apply it all over and place extra on my ends. It doesn't really have a strong scent.

The ingredients are raw honey, shea butter, coconut butter, cocoa butter, almond butter and mimosa oil.

Chrs...so sorry that you had to cut your hair, but you still have a head full of beautiful curls.

I buy my powders from ayurNaturalbeauty.com (got this site from your butter~n~bars thread last year) and I haven't had any issues with particles.

I'm so glad you liked the set; I liked it too and was a little out done I didn't get one in the same color!! LOL

Just wanted to stop by and say hello!! TTYL

Hey Chrs,

Sorry to hear about the breakage. Your twists look great. I saw you the other morning. I was right behind you at the stop but before I could get up good enough to beep at you you were gone. Very Happy

Your twists look good. I'm sure you hair will grow back so much more healthy and more gorgeous. You pamper and take such good care of it. A deva cut would be beautiful for you....can't wait to see pics when you do that. The salon I go to fully does the whole Deva/curly girl thing. When I was looking for deva certified stylists I found quite a few, although none around here, mainly in the surrounding counties.

Anyway, looking good - as usual.

Hey doll! Your hair will grow back stronger and thicker. I also use my honey child hair cream and my hair LOVES it. It define the twist and the moisture last for the entire week. It is my staple now for my twist and twist outs. It also helps smooth my edges when I rock a puff!

I need to follow you on twitter.

Look at you on Twitter! I am also thinking bout putting together a blog and Twitter for my Make-up Artistry and Skin Care. Really the only thing stopping me right now is time. I'm at work all day, when am I going to post and how am I going to keep up with Twitter (we're not allowed to download anything to the computers at the Reception desk)? So I'm thinking of switching to a more social media friendly phone so I can just throw myself into it.

Your twist look amazing! I can't wait to see the results of your Deva Cut.

Have a good weekend beautiful!

Hi lady, I use 1.5 parts aloe vera & one part distilled water. I also add 10-15 drops of EOs of tea tree, rosehip, peppermint & lavender. The EO measurements are for about a 24 oz bottle.

Here are some recent pictures of Grace.
Six day hair (cleansed rope twists & put hair in bun using two scrunchies)

Thanks CHRSLVBKS! OH BUGEEZUS!!! You and grace are looking so fabulous. I must admit your weight lost is really inspiring me to do something daring. Keep up the good work lady. Don't forget the Sade concert at Verizon, tickets go on sale this Friday.

Carla, you are very welcome.

Let me know if you need an accountability buddy for your weight loss.

You know, I am not a Sade fan. Thanks for thinking of me.

Awww, thanks! I picked up the earrings in Raleigh at last year's first natural hair care expo there. Both Dva & tiashauntee had to convince me that big was okay, LOL. As for the rope twist, not hard at all. The key is to twist the individual sections in the same direction before twisting them together in the opposite direction. Since I am right handed, I twist the individual sections to the left, then twist them together to the right.

Hubby actually always comments. He does not like the fact that I am losing my backside, men, lol.

Thanks kim!

Today's style is a puff in front with pony in back. My hair is filling a little oily and crunchy. The crunch is from the EO conditioner added to a spritz of it, aloe vera juice & oils. Note to self to write down what I mix up. The oil is likely from the spritz & added coconut oil. I decided not to spritz it last night or this morning. This morning, I added some Qhemet Biologics amla nourishing pomade to the front and edges. I also added MyHoneyChild's coconut gel to the edges to slick them down a bit.

This is what my hair looked like last night--frizz city.

Guess what I do not mind, it is still moisturized and feels so soft. I will cleansed it tonight & tomorrow night. Tomorrow night I will also do an ACV rinse. These are the nights I work out extra hard--step classes.
