    Installed yarn braids on Saturday and it's my look until at least June (maybe July). I made them bra-strap length rather than waist length. The latter can make them a little unwieldy at times. I'm enjoying where they're at. I'm also traveling to Vegas again in a couple of weeks (performing again as a soloist and for dance training), so it'll make packing and hotel life easier. I'll trim in April before the next install. The fun part is that I can wear my fancy hair sticks again!

    I've worn my hair damp and in some variation of a wash n' go to every ladies only/hijab-less special occasion I've been to. Tonight's bridal shower is the first time I'll be wearing stretched dry hair... it's gonna be interesting. If these bantu knots don't work out, worst case scenario I get to the venue, find the bathroom and stick my head under the tap.

    I've seen a couple of really awesome BAA's around here lately. They are tempting me...but only a little bit...

    Took my braids out on the 12th. Tried to get my hair shaped, but he just tapered the edges. I'll just have to cut it myself. Again. As usual. Been sporting a fro the past two weeks and loving it (again). Did a photo shoot for my costume designer and had a grand old time. Here's ONE photo (with photographer's credit) because the others are for the website and I don't want to share those in too many places before they go live.

    Mikalia you are GORGEOUS! Those are great pics.

    I was just coming in here to post that it's been two months since my last haircut and I'm thinking about...not getting another haircut.

    Truth...I get bored way too easily...

    That said, I told myself that the next time I grow my hair out I'm going to do it under extensions. I still need a couple of inches in the back before I feel comfortable getting some...so summer, maybe?

    I've already gotten lazy with the natural hair bullet journal I was supposed to be using...after only 2 months.

    I've been wearing buns (mainly) and twistouts for the past 4 months. I am READY for a new look. I don't need to see my hair for 4 + months lol. Marley twists, here I come! I already know my length retention is going to be on point this year!

    I'm seeing an increased number of ads that seem to be tailored to taking Sheamoisture's jilted customers!



    Edit: Can't seem to embed the other ads...

    They definitely are. And I was trying to be fancy too??? Nahh I can't �� I'll try to document major things like trims, protective styles, products...And just keep it organized by months. No more fancy doodling, etc

    ----------

    Yes. I checked NP today expressly to see if anybody was talking about SM. Their hair products have never interested me, so they've never gotten any of my money. My hair doesn't like Shea butter...and their products are overpriced IMO. What I had looked at was their soap and body stuff. I have yet to make a purchase tho.r

    Ive watched so many videos about SM's blunder....

    Common viewpoints I took away: 1. Nothing wrong with expanding demographic, but they should've made a specific line for non-kinky hair instead of watering down existing products
    2. The full commercial (which shows more diversity) should've been presented not that little snippet. (And btw who has been kicked out of school or denied employment for having red hair? No one? Oh ok. But those with kinks and locs have.....hmmmm....
    3. Comparing this to Pantene marketing to Black women is a false equivalency. They do have products for kinky hair, but did they change the formula of their original products? Do they underrepresent their main client base in commercials? No....

    And their apology to "WOC" :/ You mean Black women??? Their main client base???
