    My formerly permie sister stopped putting relaxers in her hair about two years ago. During this time, I was her main stylist. Only did that to keep her from running back to the crack. That said, this summer my sister has

    2) Retired from teaching!!
    3) Started locing her hair!!!

    Mercy!!!!

    I was coming out of a hardware store today in a strip mall and was headed into Dollar General next door when an older man and a younger woman came out and was headed into the parking lot. His eyes met mine and I smiled. He smiled back and kept walking and then abruptly turned and yelled to me: "You know you got a mess of beautiful hair!" How nice and so unexpected, lol. Still wearing my pin-curled braids.

    Testing out this hair gel by The Mane Choice (the Biotin Infused Styling Gel). I like it a lot, but it's INTENSE. The definition is insane, but if you don't use the leave-in, it'll dry your hair out REAL quick. If it's current state holds up until tomorrow (going to the Circle of Sisters Expo), I'll use it for a performance in a couple of weeks.

    Going on a cruise next month, and since I plan on being I water nearly every day, I'll probably just wear my hair plaited most of the time. I need one dressy outfit and figured the easiest thing to do was to put my hair in a puff. I have a fake one but I wanted a bigger one. So I was checking online when I found this pic. This is wrong on so many levels I just had to share.

    How ironic... I came here to report that for the first time possibly EVER (been natural 23 years) I've figured out how to maintain twistout definition in the looser, less coily parts of my head: FLAT TWISTING instead of regular twisting. Then I see my earlier post:

    Ladies and gentlemen, you are NEVER EVER too old to learn new things.
    How will your 2019 be different than any other year?

    Hello, everyone!!! Hope youíre doing well!!!

    Letís see.... My nappiversary is coming up in June and will mark 14 years natural! My 3rd bc was in 2015 and now my hair is thriving. Current fave: Camille Rose products.

    Iíve developed carpal tunnel syndrome (mainly right hand) so....braiding for hours... is off the table. *shrug*

    Surgery was recommended but Iím placing that on hold...

    I donít have any drastic life changes to report. But hey....that could be a good thing.

    Just turned 32 / single / living my best life
    "Authenticity is true beauty."

    More things I've learned:

    1. For my twistouts to look right (as opposed to crazy) at this length, my hair has to be completely stretched out. Because my tiny coils have been trained to coil, this is difficult to do without a LOT of manipulation. Adding heat (in the form of the blow dryer) helps but again, only after I've taken the time to really comb/fingercomb out my coils. Although I'm still at "in-between" length, I have more hair than I did this time last year, which leads me to the next thing I've learned, which is...

    2. Maybe, just maybe, it's OKAY to leave my coils as they are, even with my crazy shrinkage pattern, so long as they're properly moisturized and protected by product so they won't tangle up on each other. All I'd have to do is keep on tucking my looser coils behind my ears. It's not a bad look...really... And this leads me to the third thing, which is...

    3. I know I said this was my Last Growout Ever (i.e. my next Big Chop is going to be my last) but I don't know if I have the patience to wait until my hair gets out of this in-between stage. There's a LOT to be said about not spending a ton of time on hair, esp. at this stage of my life. However, I still want to be that silver fox with the big silver 'fro...and I want it to be all my own hair so I guess I'm going to keep on growing it out.
