Thread: ALL NEW year, member, post

    Default ALL NEW year, member, post

    Hello! I stumbled over this community yesterday when I decided to search out something I've wanted to do for years and never have: the mermaid soak (didn't know there was a name for it). It always seems to me like my hair could be more evenly and possibly overall better conditioned if it were treated with conditioner then suspended in a basin of warm water and gently swirled around to distribute product for a minute or two. Based on my reading this may not accurate.😕

    Long TMI story: I really.really.really needed to wash my hair yesterday and my scalp was feeling itchy and I wanted to get a work out in but I needed to wash my hair but I didn't want to sweat into my hair like that directly after washing it but I wanted to wash it more than anything.. repeat until OH MY GOSH the garage door is opening, my beloved has returned home and I literally haven't done anything FOR HOURS but try to recreate hair styles of the month with varying levels of success on my obnoxiously (for intricate buns) thick hair. . .. . but my scalp felt a bit better for having all that attention paid to it and my hair. I still got to bathing as soon as I had said hello. 😅

    TLDR: Hi! I'm new. As best as I can tell*, I am "TBL/BCL2c/3a MC iii".

    *I cannot deliberately leave my hair untouched after washing it or I get a massive fluffy/frizzy mess that I have to live with until the next wash. It's just not worth it. Maybe next time I fall asleep with it in a towel I'll take a picture after I wake up. I acknowledge that this is probably because my hair is used to being brushed at least daily. I'm addicted.

    I love that there are threads for types and colors and maintenance styles and lengths and.. everything, here. Also, the tutorials on how to recreate styles are so great! Thank you for existing and letting me join you!

    Thank you, @sarahlabrynth! Your clarification on some of those monthly hairstyles helped me manage them.

    Welcome.

    When I do nothing to my hair after washing, so no styling with products especially for it, and don't use thick moisturizing conditioners to weigh the poof down, there's no managing it either.

    Try looking into the LOC method (link is in my signature). HTH!
    WCC method (washing) --- Rinse-out oil (MO) --- LOC/LCO method (styling)
