My Mom says:
I’m all about basics (cheap) and chemical free (no color yet). Actually, I follow a lot of your advice, I just can’t afford the products. I wear my hair back and up and trim it myself about every 3 months. I keep it a good shoulder length because it’s more versatile for me at that length. When I find someone who can do a good curly cut I will wear it out more.
I use a wide tooth comb when I comb, never brush, use my fingers to fluff out my evening braids (the ends curl naturally because there is no perm left). When I want a slick back I use warm water and QP. I kind of miss brushing so I do scalp massage when I think about it (sometimes I do the brush with stocking when it’s dirty/straight and I need a quick “clean”...remember that? LOL) Because I haven’t been “stylin” there’s not much more to add.... no fuss here.
I’m sent some pictures of products that I use. One last note, when I need to stretch my money I throw some virgin olive oil in my mixes because I always have that on hand. I keep tea tree oil on hand to throw in those blends.
Sleek updo! I'm guessing from a large braid out.
That's Akeela, her dog baby :-) Had to throw her in. Yes, she is a pitbull.
