  1. Baggied bunning. The key to my off-the-chain retentionin 2010

    So, I'm back to what worked so well for my retention in 2010. I'm back to baggied bunning.

    I've been hesitant about trying it because the last detangling nightmare during my transition that ended up with me cutting huge knots out of my hair was when I lumped my hair together. During my transition, I had to keep my hair in sections or it would tangle terribly. So now that I'm all natural and my hair is long enough to bun, I want to get back to baggy bunning because my ...
  2. Day 3 Curlformers update

    Okay. Day 3. Still curly but they're falling. I lightly finger combed and just HAD to do a scalp massage. My scalp felt so dry and itchy. I'll probably comb thru for more of a wavy look tomorrow or pin it up for another day first. I'll keep you posted. Meantime, NJoy!

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...
  5. Birthday Length Check

    Hey Divas! Yesterday was my birthday and I spent the whole day pampering myself with a spa/hair day. I DC, airdried and flat ironed my hair. I think I used a bit too much heat protectant because my hair felt strong but oily. Anyhoo, here's the length check pic for June 23, 2011,

    I love this new length, which I'm claiming FWL. It feels awesome.
