Monthly Review #47

In a month it will have been four whole years. I rewatched the video of the shave recently and I can't tell if I want that again or not. My hair is big and beautiful and I love it. But also it's a lot of work and the ends feel awful and it's so much work to detangle.

And having sex (in a position where your hair is splayed on a cloth surface) ruins curly hair. The curls become tangles that do not look pretty; the ends become brittle; the top becomes gross. It's not good. I did some googling and decided to buy satin pillow cases (no silk - veganism) an they seem to help with like 80% of the knotting and 30% of the dried ends. I'm on the lookout now for a solid detangle spray - then I'll try spraying it in after (can it detangle?) and before (can it stop it from tangling?). We'll find out. I also may do a complete deep condition soon.

But on the regular I love having long hair. It feels like me. I'm comfortable in my own hair.

But also I want to see just how long I can get it if I last another year.

I decided not to go to devachon because I thought they'd nag me to get it cut - but now I'm thinking maybe I need new styling products? I'm not sure.

Monthly Review #46

This month I opted to straighten my hair. It was at that time that I realized my hair could touch my navel. Super exciting.

Monthly Review #42

Also very late. Been trying to adhere to curly girl methods - some good days, others really not great.
I've been thinking that maybe my hair prefers damage in order to curl....more on that next month.
