I've got tons of recipes that I wouldn't mind sharing. Girl, ya just gotta learn to work with your hair not against it. When you find something that works for you, stick with it. I've heard that henna looses up hair a bit, but think its temporary though undecided.

Hey ladies,

My hair is growing so nicely, thick and gorgeous, I love it! cheesy Still not long enough to braid but I am now patient with it, taking it a day at a time!

How is everyone doing?
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by Ejadamen(f): 2:51pm On Nov 18, 2010
It's been 2 weeks since I braided my hair and I miss my hair. I can't wash the hair and my hair is missing water. When I do take the braids off I wonder when next I'll braid again. I wonder if I'll miraculously go from ear length to neck length tongue I doubt.
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by SAGoddess: 3:02pm On Nov 18, 2010
LOL@ ear length to neck length over night cheesy

I know I am not doing singles/braids for a long while, that is what led me to cut my hair in Aug in the first place!!!

How? Did it destroy your edges? I braid my hair twice a year. Can't stand more than that.

@ Inked,by the time you braid you'll miss your hair. A change in looks is always worth the stress though.

I had them on for four months throughout the winter and it was knotted, my hairdresser and her gentle touch could not avail herself and kept messing me around so I got mad and went to the barber to shave it off, I was not prepared to let someone else handle me roughly, break my hair in the process and burn my sculp with relaxer (chemical) and still get paid for it! cheesy cheesy I am glad I did too because I thought I had missed going natural ONCE again. . . .
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by Ejadamen(f): 1:40pm On Nov 19, 2010
Four months! shocked shocked shocked What kind of braids was that? The longest I have had braids on is a month and a half and only because I was lazy to loosen it. This one might be the shortest,i hope i get to carry it for 3 weeks. The hair don tire me.
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by SAGoddess: 2:38pm On Nov 19, 2010
Yeah girl, 4 months, it was the "singles" like drop and something but done all the way to the end. . . . you sit for 8 hours and pay a lot of money for those so it does not make sense to take them out after a month when you put so much into getting them done. Never again though, taking them out is another story! I will be doing cane/cornrows from now on!

lol, I will. So far it been interesting. I noticed I seem to really love my hair at night right before I go to bed. This my sound a bit odd but each night before I go to bed, I take a good look at myself and appreciate what I've been born with grin.

lol, when I said braid I meant  braid with my own hair. I don't like to use extensions when I braid my hair.

lol, when I used to wear braids, sometimes I'd keep them in for four months.

I hope to do that too but it will be a while before my hair grows to a length that can achieve that.

Same type I used to do. It didn't matter how long I sat,after a month it's coming out or I lose my hair. I think the only style I kept for 4 months was when i did dreadlocks with extensions. Never again will I do that. My hair was never the same after taking the extensions out.
Re: ***Hair For African Women*** by Ejadamen(f): 9:38pm On Nov 23, 2010
I loosened my braids today and was amazed when I saw my hair shocked It has grown so much in 3 weeks. It made me seriously consider re-braiding but it needs to rest for now and given TLC. A lot of women kept asking when I would use relaxer on my hair and I said no. They were shocked and couldn't understand why I said what I did. I didn't bother to explain. I can't wait to show them how beautiful natural hair can be when taken care of properly.
