    ahahah at least you have a job! i NEED one very badly, partly because i'm such a ridiculous pj.
    you're brave to BC before school. i did mine in may right before it ended because i was a chicken lol. and i got about 50 million questions, most of them were "why the h*** did you cut your hair! it was long...and pretty!!" [that came from the haters and narrow-minded]. on the other hand, my best friends were in LOVE with my new hair. :toothy7:

    i see that you use giovanni direct leave-in, where do you buy it?

    hahaha. i totally get this. i'm always finding product suggestions and strange hair-care tips on this site. my entire family has straight hair and they don't get it- plus i never get samples. i always just assume the product is the perfect thing for my hair...and two weeks later i find out about a whole new product haha

    curlygirl1995- why'd she say no?

    omg! thats a coincidence, i'm trying to figure out if i want a cut at a curly salon or not too! my mom will probably let me, as long as its not too expensive, especially cause she doesn't want me to cut it myself lol. why'd she say no?

    oh so far i got a moisturizer and i'm waiting for some sabino moisture block samples before school, so i can possibly wear my hair straight during school :wink:

    haha I do, at least usually (the generic CVS avg is alcohol-free and fragrance-free and all that, as well). It's still a bit hard to resist shopping around online though...

    I used to buy new products all the time, but i just started making my own out of herbs, bcause the fancy products dont work as well as homemade herbal ones. It's easy for me to make herbal hair stuff because i live next to a greenhouse that my mom owns, so thats actually probably why i do it so much! The only thing I buy is conditioner (I only found recipes for natural conditioner with egg or mayo. No way i'm using that.) For you pj's, try texturizer or pomade if you want more piecy curls. It works for me! It looks like you just got back from swimming in the ocean when your hair dries. Gl! :compress:

    I lie to my dad and tell him the products he bought me last month (giovanni and carol's daughter) were used up. So he takes me hair product shopping when i actually have prods at home already. I'm just so into trying new things.

    There's this lovely texturizer/pomade in this whole food store, but is it better to apply when wet or dry, smo?

    It depends what kind it is. Look on the instructions. If it doesn't say, just do whatever's easiest.

    Haha my mom and I are both major product junkies.
    Problem is? We can't go off and buy products all the time. We have to wait until the old one is empty or else my dad gives us crap. Also, my mom has African American hair and I have looser curls than her since my dad had straight hair, so we have to use different products. She feels so bad for me because I don't know what to do that she buys products for me. Not that I'm complaining, but she has hair that could be beautiful if she wasn't using the wrong products.
    My hair is stubborn. What I thought would help me only resulted in horrible, damaged hair. Straightening my hair is now the only reasonable thing I can do. So, I am no longer CG. Not until my hair gets fixed.
    Goal- Long, shiny locks! Currently shoulder length when curly. Goal is to reach around right below chest area. Wish me luck! :)
