    I like to deep condition when I'm wearing braids. Especially when wearing extensions.

    It was weird. It didn't feel very tight at first, but I really started to feel it as she was almost done. If I had felt it earlier, I totally would have asked her to lighten up.
    I have resolved to just cut my hair off when I have the chance. I will grow it out once I am not dependent on someone who doesn't have a vendetta against natural hair.
    Hey, KinkyChica. What's been going on since your too-tight braids? Hope you're doing alright.

    Never mind. Found your big chop post. Put some pics up!

    Haha, nah. I don't feel right posting pics on the internet.
    Having a twa is great, and I feel as though I am learning about my hair all over again. My scalp has never breathed so easily!
    Having hair so short, I can see that my hair isn't as dense as I was hoping. It has me a little paranoid that my hair thinned out from the overly-tight braids, but I don't know for sure.

    Update: Super grateful that my mum put in my braids 7 weeks ago. I've been re-braiding since they started to get ragged about 4 weeks in. Realized that I wasn't rebraiding consistently so I decided to section into 4 quarters 3 days ago.

    Re-doing each quarter is a two step process. 1st unbraid, fingercomb/detangle with coconut+sesame oil and water+rosewater. Bantu knot each braid section. 2nd undo the bantu knot once it's dry and rebraid. One quarter done so far!

    Update: Back in August I made a couple of promises some of which I've kept up with, some of which I haven't and need to work on.

    Need to Work On:
    Drinking 2L of water daily (right now I'd say I get that done only 3-4 days of the week, not bad but can be improved on)
    monthly deep condish
    LOC method - I really need to work on this
    trimming regularly - confession: i use sharp paper scissors to trim, i'll either buy some shears or pay for a professional to trim my hair the next time i want to have at my ends


    Just gotta keep doing what I'm already doing:
    biweekly cowash
    protective styles - hair is currently in braids
    satin scarf - loooove it, been using it all the time, under my hijab and to sleep
    no more leaving in non-leave-in condish - i've substituted all that with oils
    finger comb only
    minimizing elastic bands, keeping it loose
    rinsing hair with cold water
