    Talking Long time lurker here, thanks for having me!

    Hi everyone!

    I'm so glad to be here! I'm a long time lurker who has been on and off for many years with my hair care. I started seriously growing from a little over BSL in late 2019, and currently i'm at HL. I've been trimming intermittently if it feels like I have too many split ends.

    I think I might be wavy, but to be honest i'm not sure. Sometimes I wake up with nearly stick-straight hair, and sometimes I wake up with almost curls! My hair just kind of does what it wants. For now i've typed myself at 2a, M, iii. I'm excited to really officially start on my journey of trying to find my natural texture and grow my hair out super long!

    I've switched between natural haircare and conventional many times, I find i'm a real flip-flopper when it comes to my haircare - I love experiments and DIYs! Right now, I'm stretching washes, and trying to minimize mechanical damage. Keeping my hair up in braided buns at work, and washing once every 2 weeks is what i've been trying. Moderate oiling before a wash, and light oilings in between or when my hair is feeling dry. I'm trying my own homemade shampoo at the moment, so if it works out i'll have to post the recipe on here!

    Here's a couple pics of my hair! More to come once I get my 25+ post permissions!
