I am so ready for locs, I'm 63 and totally gray (it's pretty). The girl that started them in April just left her clients.

You are in the car and lean over to grab something. When you lean back to your seat, you get a whiff of something, and it's not pleasant. It's like a musty, sweaty or sharp smell. Where is it coming from? What just happened? Repeat the motion, same result and now it hits you. It's coming from your hair! Or more likely, from your scalp.Smelly Scalp ...
Hi everyone, new to the forum today. I have been looking for a forum similar to some old forums I belongs too that are pretty much abandoned. I've been all natural for about 20 years. I managed to grow my hair to about an inch above mid back length in the past. I just cut it myself to start fresh with clean and even ends. And I tried starting a hai
Hi all, I'm new here and I need help. I guess I'll start by telling you all my story.So I started to embrace my hair back in 2016. All my life I was told I had "Bad" hair. My mom would get frustrated because she did not know how to manage my curly hair and she chopped it all off when I was 4. Later on as I got older she figured relaxing it was bett

However, I'm having a bit of a hard time identifying what hair type I have because I just recently big chopped (I've NEVER worn my natural hair until now, 21 years later)
I just wanted to take the time to introduce myself and get familiar with the forum. As I said before, my name is Brianna (On forums i usually go by my handle so Elo, Eloquent, Elixir - whatever floats your boat!) and i recently started my hair journey over again on November 2nd after being frustrated with my hair for years. It turned out that oil w
Hi everyone. I big chopped in 2010 and pretty much lived on this board to lean how to manage my hair. I can’t remember my old screen name nor do I have access to my old college email address to reset the password. I’d love to see some of my old posts. SoulRebel, KnottyAuthor, NappyMia and GAN are a few of the names I remember. Thanks Dee for creati
