Of course now I see some lint that I need to get rid of either by pulling it out or by Sharpie. LOL
I don't know why I always look like a plucked chicken from this angle. I'm not going bald...I swear.

So this is one of the stretchy ones that is new for me, because I haven't had one like it before. It doesn't hold all of my hair, but I like it this way because it still keeps my hair out of my face and off my back. I never thought that hair down my back would bother me, but when you are sitting (especially driving) and your hair keeps getting stuck behind you it can become quite the bother. Anyway, I know you all will let me know what you think about my new look. LOL

There is a very special lady that is part of the the lovinlocs forum that I am a part of that is Caucasian and has adopted two beautiful African American princesses. She has experienced first hand the nasty attitudes that people have toward tightly coiled hair. She is one of the few, the proud, and the brave however. Many people of other cultures have a difficult time understanding what the big deal is. I was a little offended at this conversation that is so sensitive taking place in such a public forum (a movie), but then I thought maybe it will change some minds, tell me what you all think. I may post some other vids on this subject, because we all have our stories. Let me know what you think.

By the way if you are considering buying some, it is cheaper at the garden store than if you buy it from the cosmetic section. It is the same stuff, but it is almost twice as expensive.

WARNING: Whining is about to begin.
I do not like my hair twisted. I liked my puffy roots. I liked my hair doing whatever it pleased. I don't like this at all. Look at my scalp. I look bald. Probably, because I haven't seen my scalp in so long, but still. The "Plucked Chicken" look is not sexy. I feel really stuck right now. I know that a lot of people are going to be really happy to see what seems to be a change of mind, but WAIT! It's not so. I will be a nappy headed little black child again. My hair apparently hates winter, and this is simply a protective measure.
Okay, I'm finished. Now comfort me in my time of grief at the loss of my roots.
Oh, and as for the blemish on my forehead. I am a picker. I indeed made a mountain out of a mole hill. It was a teeny barely noticeable bump...until I noticed it. I messed and wasn't satisfied until I had a mark on my face. After I made the mark, I felt like an addict that just fell of the bandwagon. Y'all pray for me, I need help. Now, we can see if this stuff (OCM) helps to get rid of marks too.
Okay, now you may resume comforting me.

- I don't have to do a thing but shampoo and go (maybe a little dryer time, but not much).
- I love the look.
- I love the feel mentally.
- I am learning to not to be moved by the opinions of others about "the way locks should look".
- Because I suffer with HIHD I still want to twist every now and again.
- I notice shedding sometimes and I am not used to seeing that. It makes sense though because my roots will behave more like Afro hair as they are not in a *protective hairstyle.
- People always have something to say.
*A protective hairstyle is one that keeps your hair safe from the cold in winter (or other harsh environmental issues to include heating systems or extreme dryness). If you have an Afro for example, I would suggest that you keep your hair in 2 strands, braids, or plaits through the winter months. These style help to maintain moisture and keep you from combing your hair. Obviously I am not combing my hair, but the moisture is being zapped. To add insult to injury my steamer broke. That made me just a little angry to say the least.
All that to say that I am wondering about twisting in the winter months and leaving it be in the other 9 months. I just can't seem to control the dryness and that is my main issue. Let me know what you think.
