OMG...that poor husband of hers LOL. Can you imagine waking up and looking at HER everyday....sober?? I know you saw her recent photo...Goooood Grief. There's no way in hell that bitch is ONLY 56 years old. uh hu NO. If she IS 56, she must've had one fucked up life. LOL.
On second thought...water seeks it's own level. He's probably as much as a low life as she is. I mean, think about it, APV. What kind of decent Black man would be married...and STAY married to the likes of her unless he WAS trash. You know the type...the kind of BM that nooooooooo BW would look at.
LOL at 2 low rents (your phrase) hooking up.
C/S...but enough about the low-rents!

can we just talk about hair...one of these days ill post a few pics of mine. It is growing so fast it even shocks me. Ive got a head full of 3b/3c curls and im loving it. The trim was the best thing i could of done for it, it completely polishes up your curl texture. A friend of mine just did her bc, and im trying to coach her thru it but im afraid she did it for the wrong reasons....
going natural is a persona journey...you cant look at other womens hair and say i wish...blah blah blah. Its about accepting what was givin to you and loving it!
I think I have a combination of 3a & 3b. I love the look of curls but hate the feeling of products weighing my hair down. Any products that you recommend. Right now I'm just using Coconut Oil (thanks for that recommendation, btw, I LOVE it) but even that can feel too heavy. Maybe I'm just not use to hydrating my hair and it's something I have to get use to. I tried the Mix Chick product...HATED IT.

One of these days (before I get my braids put back in on Wednesday) maybe we can Skype so you can see what my hair looks like.

I know what you mean, i dont like when my hair is weighed down either. To keep the moisture without weighing it down try vegetable glycerin. I got some from whole foods. All I do after I cowash my hair is spritz it with a mixture of olive oil brand oil,(for ur hair not the cooking type) rose water, and the vegetable glycerin. But first, as soon as i get out the shower while it is still dripping wet, I put about a half dollar size amount of Cantu shea butter leave in conditioner. Then I just put it in a puff lol cuz i aint got timeeeeee lol and it always comes out cute :)

Oh gee, B....the hair and nails have grown...a lot. I'm not sure if its the pre-natal vitamins or the out of control hormones. Either way, I have a lot of both. I keep it braided (nothing fancy) most of the time. When I return to school full time, I may wack it off again and go pixie.

Co-washing is washing your hair with conditioner instead of the sudsy, harsh shampoo. I don't wash(shampoo) my hair every single day, although I could if I wanted to but I dont need to. After I shower and wet it I put it into a puff ponytail with the curls just on the top of my head. I do not have time most days for the fancy stuff, but when I go out, I do it up! I go thru a lot of products, cuz I end up rinsing it out everyday anyway. I wash my hair probably every two three days sometimes less. I have products galore and I test things out trying to find the regimen that works best for me. Your daughters are mixed, what did you find worked on their hair type? Did they have curls or wavy hair? Im just curious, Im sure they were looking nice but did you have a hard time dealing with their hair as they were growing up?

Back to the shampooing, my friend who is Asian...she HAS to wash her hair everyday. After a day, it looks VERY oily and it starts to clump together. I think that it makes her hair look nice and shiny and it actually styles better but she thinks its just gross. Makes me wonder how it would look and feel and smell after 3 days or more.

Ive also found that some white people with naturally curly hair do not wash their hair everyday either because it dries it out. People with straighter hair usually have oilier(sp? lol) scalps.

At the end of the day, curly or straight hair all depends on the shape of a damn hair follicle. The hair follicle below the scalp has a hooked end in people with curly hair. The more hook the follicle has, the curlier the hair is. Those with straight hair have hair follicles with no hooks.

What Is Co-Washing??????????

You may’ve heard the term “co-washing” before but you may not have known exactly what it is or what it means to “co-wash” your hair. Co-washing is actually short for “conditioner washing” which is the act of using a conditioner to wash your hair instead of shampoo. The method of co-washing is primarily used by African American women to increase moisture in their naturally dry hair.

There are several different ways use the co-washing method. It can be done along with a regular regimen of washing and deep conditioning. It can even be used in place of regular shampooing, with the intention of using a clarifier when needed to cleanse the scalp and hair from product buildup. Some may choose to co-wash their hair once a week midway between shampoos. Or some may co-wash up to 3 times a week if they suffer from very dry hair and scalp.

When co-washing the hair really any type of conditioner will do the trick. Many prefer to use cheaper brands of conditioners like Suave, White Rain, or VO5 because you still get the benefit of quick conditioning without having to break the bank replacing your conditioner! I personally like to take advantage of conditioners I’ve tried and didn’t love. That way I don’t have to feel bad about wasting money on trying out new products. I presently have about 3 different conditioner brands in my shower that I use solely for co-washing because they don’t work as well for deep conditioning.

With co-washing it is necessary to exercise caution so as not to over-moisturize the hair. If you start to notice that your hair is beginning to feel sort of gummy you may need to ease up a bit. If you are concerned, but unsure if you are over-moisturizing try this little test. Take a strand of your hair, hold both ends and pull. If you noticed the strand seemed to stretch for a while then snap, even possibly coiling up on the ends, you may be going a bit overboard on the co-washing and you might want to either ease up a bit or try incorporating a protein conditioner into your co-washing regimen.

All-in-all co-washing, or “conditioner washing” can be a very beneficial addition to a hair care routine for a person who tends to suffer from chronically dry hair. If you are unfamiliar with the concept of co-washing but are interested in finding ways to increase the moisture of your hair, try it out once a week and see how your hair responds. It may turn out to be just the thing you needed for soft, healthy, MOISTURIZED hair.
