One week done with these Celies and they're still hanging in there. Gonna keep them for another week if I can. I've been M&S everyday and been pretty consistent with my Nioxin/Biotin/multi-vitamin combo. Can't believe I haven't done a length check in a while!!

Weave is out. Hair seems thinner after a week of tight braiding, but has survived. Never again for me--weaves just aren't in my hair plan. Here is my hair as of Saturday morning after the weave removal. Looks a inch or two away from APL here(?) but its so hard to say, my hair looks different in every picture based on my hair position, arm position etc. Plus my hair will always be in a V, I have a long face so I always have to wear my sides shorter. So...giving it to April for a definite APL as per my original plan.

So yeah, definitely hop on Kyra's shampoo bars. www.kyrasultimate.com
I use CON Argan Oil shampoo. It's not stripping at all. My mum doesn't like it all that much because her doesnt feel 'washed' but if that's what your looking for CON Argan Oil is for you.

Slight dilemma. I'm at the Dominican salon and I tried to get the hair vitamins for shedding but they were out. So I proceeded with washing and everything else. While I'm getting rollers put in the woman doing them stops, rolls my shed hair into a little ball, and shows it to the other women rolling hair. In Spanish she says "look at all this hair from my client". They laugh. So I just made a mental note to "forget" her tip when I make my rounds, especially since I was gonna tip my roller extra for dealing nicely with my shed hair. But now I'm having second thoughts. An I being petty? My feelings were hurt, but I was also feeling myself get a lil heated. This is supposed to be a professional business. I don't need you to make fun of me or make comments about me. It obviously wasn't important enough to her to show me, the client, this wonderful ball of hair. And even though she doesn't speak English well there are plenty of people here that usually translate. Why would this be any different?

Well that's my argument. Thoughts? Am I just getting worked up for nothing?

Oh see I would have laid her out with a British Accent Tabetha Style!

Start doing Black Tea Rinses that will help with the Shedding

Sorry to hear you experienced this kind of nonsense

@lamaria211 I was looking at those last night. I wanted the DCer but the price. Ugh. I pay more for Hairveda Sitrinillah but it's still hard for me to spend that much. I'm interested in hearing how it works for you though!

I used Chicoro's moisture-drenched prepoo today. I Clarifyed with Avalon Organics Rosemary, Mint and Tea Tree Shampoo then I washed and deep conditioned my hair today using Moroccanoil products. My hair feels awesome right now, and by awesome, I mean soft, silky and strong. You can't get any better than that.

my hair grows like that. my nape's hairline is in the shape of a "W". when i wore a fade, i would just keep shape up the natural hair line instead of my barber shaping me straight across. it would grow back so funky if i did it that way.

i like Herbal Essence's Long Term Relationship Leave-in so far. it is very light and smells good.

i am going to start a journal for my hair. so i can keep track of what i am doing and using.

@NikkiQ, yes hun I chopped it off almost 2 weeks ago and put the pic up right away. I needed to cut it again because of the splits and SSKs. In addition, the stylist that cut out my weave, cut big chunks of hair off with the scissor she was using to remove it. I had told her that I thought she was cutting out my hair, she said no.

It was days later when I noticed that she did cut out chunks of my hair on the left side of my head. It was quite disturbing and cutting it was my only option. It encouraged me to take off all the split ends and get it low enough to grow back in with the chunks of hair the stylist cut out.

I will not be going back to her again for ANYTHING hair!

@pookaloo83 - I use a water based moisturizer with no issue. Blackonyx77 on YT uses carefree curl as a moisturizer ... I don't care for a lot of glycerin so I rely on that Aussie Hair Insurance for daily moisture.

What did you try girlfriend?
