Checking in!

Hello all :wave:

I don't recognize so many of your usernames but I used to be an active member here. I wrote a blog post that I see still gets linked occasionally (dormroomcurly).

I just wanted to check in after a several year long hiatus! My life got busy and I figured out how I like to do my hair, so naturallycurly and my blog sort of slipped into the background. I'm planning an update to my blog though and I'm thinking about making it a more regular thing again.

Anyway, I wanted to see if anyone from a few years ago was still here and introduce myself to some new people. I would love to know how everyone who I knew from my time here is doing and meet some new people!

    Hi! I do not know you from here, but, I know your blog well. I have linked to it often here and on a Facebook group I am a part of.
    remember, with all advice or suggestions for your hair, YMMV!! :read2:
    My hair:
    2b wavy, medium texture, low porosity, med-high density. Protein finicky.
    My routine:
    Cleansing: DCNP, every 4-5 days (occasionally use CJ cleansers).
    RO: CJSC, occasionally use JCDC
    LI: KCKT or CJSL
    Gel: KCCC, CJCIAB for 2nd day hair (sometimes third)

    Heat is my friend: warm water rinses, steam caps, and diffuse dry. I love CLU cloths and my Denman.

    I'm so glad you found it helpful. I actually decided to do a blog refresh/update after finding that post linked by a friend (who didn't know I wrote it) on pinterest!

    Thanks! it isn't quite as curly as it was in my avatar anymore. I used to try to make it be curlier but now I just accept that I'm really more of a wavy and my curls start somewhere between my eyebrows and my ears and there's no changing it

    I am a newbie. I think I am a 2b. I have been blowdrying and straightening my hair for the last 15 years. Trying to embrace the REAL ME. :wink:

    You're too sweet :)

    I'm modified. I recently started blogging again. The link is in my signature. I'm currently doing a series of posts on what products I use. I find that because my hair isn't naturally curly to the roots (it's straight then curls around my ears), I tend to get oily around my crown if I don't use a sulfate-free or low sulfate shampoo. I like a little lather, basically. That also lets me use whatever products I want.
