  1. Curlformers!

    IHello Divas! I have an update on my first attempt at using Curlformers last night.

    To prepare, I did an overnight DC the night before and ran around most of the day with that same conditioner, waiting to find time to set my hair with the curlformers. I rinsed out the conditioner, finger detangled and sectioned off my hair into 4 section, prepping for the set. I figured it would take me about an hour at most to get 'em in. Nah man. It took about 5 hours to detangle as I went along ...

  2. Update @ 39 weeks post

    Today I decided to clarify my hair. I've been meaning to wash for the past few days but, I've been busy, busy, busy.

    As I've mentioned, I've been wearing, washing and DC'g my hair in 4-6 Celie braids. I'd been using Crisco Oil on the ends of my braids to keep them from tangling. Welllllllll... I haven't been using Crisco on my braids over the past few days either. I have been moisturizing and sealing, just didn't bother to refill the container that I keep in my bathroom. The ...

  3. Well, it's a New Year and Time to get to work on NEW Goals!!

    Well we made it! 2012, welcome! I've been waiting on you.

It took me months after her passing to even feel like myself again. Once I started pulling it together, I started focusing on my father's health ...

  4. Sistahs, why ya been holding out on the butters?

    (so if you haven't seen the youtube vid with the girl mad at black people for hiding the butters then you don't get the reference. But read on anyway)

    So, I tried raw shea butter early on in the game. I put a little in my palm and rubbed to emulsify before putting on my hair. Nothing spectacular so, I moved on to trying other things in building my regi. That was early 2010.

    Saturday, I went to Atlantic Station and found a vendor that sells hand-mixed shea ...

  5. How to thicken your sulfur growth mix

    Hello Divas! I've got a tip for ya.

    One of the drawbacks to using the sulfur oil mix is that it can be messy or runny. To combat that, I've been adding JBCO to my mix to thicken it up a bit. But if you're looking for something that you can mix up and apply to your scalp like an ointment, try mixing some of the premade sulfur oil with aloe vera gel and apply directly to your scalp.

    Now, you may be tempted to make your mix with the aloe gel but, to get the right amount ...
