    I've said for years that IF I ever wore weave or anything similar to weave, it would have to look as close to my natural hair texture as possible. Then HeatFreeHair came out and I was like . Now I go look at these HerGivenHair videos and I'm like . lol

    Seriously though...these look REALLY real. Like...I've-probably-seen-them-on-the-street-already-and-didn't-know-it real. I'd actually consider getting some of these to wear for my next major trip.

    Only thing is...I know NOTHING about clip-ins. How are they maintained? Do you sleep in them? I'm clueless...
    Hello, 2021. Glad to see you. Hope you're bringing us goodness and light this year!

    It's recommended not to sleep in them, and that's for the health of your hair (it would cause tension at roots) and also to preserve the extensions themselves.

    I would co-wash, dc, and detangle mine weekly. Let them air dry and store in a Baggie/shoe box till next use.

    Thanks, CHB. Again, I think this might be something I'd consider trying the next time I go on a big trip. Or I might try them if/when this company I work for folds and/or I get laid off...which could happen sooner rather than later...

    I'm slowly growing more open to a drastic hair change. Not so drastic as to go back to chemicals but...I've never worn weave or wigs (or clip-ons), I haven't worn extensions in 16 years, I haven't worn straightened hair in 13 years, and I got rid of my locs 9 years ago. I find myself wanting to grow my hair out again but doing it in a way that's not super labor-intensive.

    I share a large-ish 2 bedroom apartment. Roommate and I each have our own "master bedroom" which includes spacious closets and bathrooms. However she is sharing my personal bathroom b/c we have some unfortunate guests...

    I absolutely HATE how she treats my bathroom closet like her own personal beauty supply store.

    My bathroom closet has 4 shelves where I keep toiletries and products. Lately, I've had to stash the good stuff in my bedroom, and just leave the basics in that closet.

    "What's this for?"

    "Can I use this?"

    "You have so many of these!!!"

    I can tell when my products have been moved (I know cuz I have the labels facing outwards). Some days my stuff is set out on the bathroom counter... Or I can find a certain hair clip, but when I see her it's in her head.

    Ugh!!! And it's not like she doesn't have products of her own!!! I recently rearranged ALL my stuff so that it's confusing to her, but perfect for me. Gave her a few sample packs so she would know to keep her paws off my stuff.

    I need a less intrusive roommate. Preferably a bald headed one.

    Can't you just tell her to stop? I don't care how much people "like makeup" I have an absolute do not touch policy in place with my makeup. And I have a ton but it's my livelihood so I can't have people fooling with it. It's your product you bought it if you don't want her to use it you have a right to tell her no.

    Yeah, so....I'm back. I big chopped 2 weeks ago after relaxing my hair in June. I don't foresee another relaxer relapse. I'm too lazy for all that upkeep--that much still the same.

    Sidenote: There's a Harmon's on 23rd St (a step down from Ricky's in terms of what/how many brands they carry) and discovered Eden Bodyworks. (I know they've existed for a minute, but they're new to ME.) A dance friend/teacher uses them and loves them. ...Honestly, it's nothing to write home about, but I do like it more than the Cantu leave-in. A couple dollars more won't hurt. They also had Oyin, Alikay Naturals, Aunt Jackie's, Soultanicals, Mielle, and some other indie brands that I can't remember. And some Shea Moisture labels I don't see in Walgreens/Duane Reade. I was a little overwhelmed!

    Hey everyone!!!! *waves

    Life. One of my relatives has been dealing with illnesses the last 2 years....and as of recently, things have gotten much worse... We're doing the best we can to get help...

    Updates:
    1. It's been 15 months since my 3rd big chop
    2. My hair can get into a ponytail; it's layered, about shoulder length
    3. I am now able to install invisible roots twist extensions in the back of my own head as well as the front
    4. I have more grays
    5. Had a scare with my edges (they're still intact)
    6. I'll be 30 next month


    Goal: Get back to my channel this spring or summer.
    I'm still active on Instagram.

    This time around, now that my third bc is growing out, I'd like to do new things. I am considering hair color and /or a possible loc journey. I have yet to get to waistlength, so I'll be striving for that as well.
