Hey everyone!

Guess what I did? After my husband graduated, we sold everything in our house, packed up our cars, and drove across the country to Portland. We changed our lives, and I'm so glad to see naturals AROUND me!

I also went to Sally's for the first time yesterday (to actually buy things), and ended up only getting a tortoise comb...

Below are pics of my hair when I first got here, after a long time of being straightened for a wedding, and one from last night prepooing!

    Yay! I hope you have fun in Portland!
    Ooh try the As I Am leave in. I've been using it for 3days straight and I've really been loving it. Their butter cream is good too. Unless ur hair can't handle heavy butters

    Thanks for the quick reply! I stood in Sally's for so long, and tried to look up reviews of every product that seemed interesting while there (Mixed Silk, GVP, Nothing but curls, Mixed... something, Silk something, Curls) but ended up leaving and going to Target. I saw rave reviews of the Cantu Shea Butter leave-in, and I'm loving it so far! Next time I go to Sally's I'll take a whiff of the As I Am!

    Our Portland trip wasn't just a "trip." We stayed with someone a few hours from here (or at their house, while they were out of town) while Seth looked for a job... And a week later, we got a place to live up in Portland. We don't know ANYONE, but we're really... excited. So much has happened, with like no money. We just left.

    Ooh. Well in that case enjoy your LIFE in Portland! Lol.
    For some reason I just can't get with cantu. I have the leave in and it just doesn't sit well with me. Maybe I should try using on my hair when its wet. Idk.
    I think its good to start off in a new place where u don't know anyone. It's a real chance to start fresh

    Yay! I envy your bravery to get up and move and I hope it was a great adventure. Glad you found a place so quickly too!

    Your hair looks particularly good in the pre-poo picture. Look at you, with new products and a regimen going on!

    I agree with B-Nessa about the As I Am products.

    Congrats again on your new life!

    I LOVE Portland. Congrats!! I don't even know you personally and I'm incredibly happy for you lol. Cantu I found works when my hair is wet but I am right now on Shea Moisture I need to try something else soon. Maybe Giovanni?
