    *Slight hijack*

    Nubian! I was just thinking about u b/c I got that porosity thing all wrong. I'm actually highly porous. The reason I can't use certain products is b/c of my texture (not my porosity). I was telling u and...I think her SN is Brownsugar/a- that I had low porosity and based on what I was saying, u were saying u prob had low too.You may well have low, but I just found out (from my stylist) that mine is high lol. I just don't wanna misinform any curlies! Here is the link that explains it if ur interested: http://www.livecurlylivefree.com/curly%20hair%20basics.htm

    You are such a sweetheart!!! Thank you. I still think I have low porosity though. That's when stuff is hard to penitrate, right? Like a stand under the shower for a good minute before my hair is wet. And what's the name of your stylist? I haven't been to one since I cut my hair - I'm too scared.

    aww I try! Yeah, that's where it gets confusing to me...my stylist said that means you're/we're porous. For example, if I layer products on, my hair will take 16+ hrs to fully dry (Its dry enough to go outside after 8 hrs but not fully dry). However, I tried leaving in less conditioner and letting my hair dry before I added a styler...and my hair dried right away! Took about an hr!!! So idk its hard to say when u factor in texture...I went to Tameeka at Christo btw. The cut was excellent! Didn't like the Christo styling products but there's no pressure to buy them. She gave me a whole bunch to take home...way more than I think she's *supposed* to ;) She's really generous! She's a sweetheart and she's being doing this for awhile. Let me know if u go, we can both get 30 % a service of $100 or more if u mention my full name!!!

    Ok sorry for the hijack lol. Nubian u can PM with any more questions about Tameeka etc.

Im in BK every other weekend. So hopefully this is arranged for the weekend Im out there. Head over to CurlyNikki.com. There's some chicas that are interested to attend.

    I am about to do a shameless plug for myself :sad5:

    I just found out I will be going to trial from Jan. 13 - 25. Is there any possible way I can plead with you guys to not have the meet-up during those 2 weekends so I can go? I know, I've already been to the last one and I don't want to impose so if it's too much trouble, don't worry about me. I'll just be at work, thinking about you and wishing I was there. Don't worry if my hair looks a hot mess cause I wasn't able to get your advice at the meet-up. It's fine. I'll be alright. I just want to make sure you lovely ladies have a good time, so don't mind me if you need to meet during the weekend I'm at work. :sad5::sad5: :sad5: :sad5:

    BTW - the last meeting was at Dinasours

    @NubianCoils- How about January 9 or 30? I'm only available on weekends particulary Saturdays because I go to church on Sundays. Hopefully the rest of the curlies won't have a conflict with these suggested dates and I hope everyone is somewhat flexible. Hope to meet you soon and if for some reason this doesn't work out, there is always the following months. Happy Holidays.:mrgreen::wav:
  • PrivateJoyPrivateJoy Posts: 41Registered Users
    I haven't been on this board in a while but I'd love to do a meetup. I guess I'll check back in early January to see what date you guys settle on.

    I'm out of the country on the 9th January, so the 30th would suit me. However I am happy to make the next one if I can't do this.

    Since January is nearing, how about we all meet on Saturday, January 30? We still haven't confirmed a place to meet and the curlies over in CurlyNikki.com suggested a few places like, IHOP, Faces and Names,and I think Dallas BBQ(that's my choice, but I'm open to new places). Does anyone have any suggestions?

    I was hoping for a little more "pizzaz" than IHOP.:lol: I have never heard of Faces and Names, but it sounds cool. I'd be down with Dallas BBQ as well. FYI - I think someone is going to have to take the lead like last time, suggest a place and date, and if there are no "nays" just go with that. As for the date, why don't we all just say January 30 unless someone comes on here and has a disagreement with that?

    Hey folks,

    I haven't been on the site but I wanted to check in here! I wouldn't wanna do IHOP b/c its really not convenient unless u live in Harlem or off the 2/3 in the BX. I don't think its a central location. I'd be fine with BBQs b/c they're more central. I'm not a huge fan of them but its gonna be really hard to find a place everyone likes that several trains go to. Does Face & Names serve food? I live right there but I thought they were a bar?

    I would also throw Applebees and TGI Fridays out there. They're no 4 star restaurants but they're about on par with BBqs in my opinion. I would think something like that might be good for different tastes, especially if we have any vegetarian tastes (I doubt ANY of these cater to vegans though lol).

    What does everyone else think?

    I agree with the Applebees/TGI Fridays suggestion. These places will have something for just about everyone. Which one and where do you suggest?
