    Lazy wrap bun? Or is that not the one you mean?

    I remembered eventually, it was the Posh Bun! I love the LWB but the Posh bun looks fuller on my hair, it has thinned a lot and I'm really frustrated with it latelly, trying to just have it up and forget about it...

    I'm for sure always amazed how different buns can make hair look fuller or not!
    I like the spread out ones more myself usually
    Much love to all my fellow long hair peoples!

    I have some scissors that I believe are marketed as eyebrow scissors. Indeed, that’s all I’d ever used them for, before beginning to S&D with them. I’m sure I got them at the drugstore, they are b beauté brand, stamped “made in Japan.”

    I suddenly thought— how do I know if they are sharp enough to use on my precious old baby ends? Would one’s local knife sharpener be able to sharpen something so small? Could I do it at home, if so, how?

    I guess that’s a lot of questions but there you go.

    This video shows you how to check whether the blades are sharp enough.

    If they need sharpening, I’m sure you could ask a local sharpening person, or send them away to be sharpened. The cost might be more than the value of the scissors though, I don’t know, although I imagine the blades are tiny so maybe that will be cheaper! Some sharpening services don’t do scissors, they have to be balanced so they don’t go wonky. The precision isn’t such a big deal for S&D but you still want a clean cut.

    I've never understood the appeal of "fancy" scissors for this reason. So many "hair-cutting" scissors seem to have blade lines. If the pair has a plain, single-beveled blade, you can sharpen yourself just as you do your kitchen knives, etc. Anything more complex than that, and I at least wouldn't be confident doing it myself and would have to find a professional sharpener.

    Well darn, of course the test material is something I don’t and never have in my home (we use cloth hankies here.) Of course lol. Now I get to ask a neighbor for a very bizarre favor.

    Does aloe actually smell like Garnier's aloe products?

    I've never encountered an aloe plant but that scent by Garnier is something incredible to me!

    Nope, aloe pretty much smells like nothing to me. The same way I'd describe the scent of water. And it does not taste good, as while fileting a plant I thought the gel looked like it'd be tasty, and not having a scent made it difficult to guess. It tastes like very bitter nothing. The juice usually tastes fine and is used in drinks, but with added flavors.

    What blackgothicdoll said ^ I've never even noticed the flowers to have a fragrance and I've grown them for years. Bees do love them though!
