Hair Question:
I’m caucasian and have dense, coarse hair that’s a combination of straight and curly/wavy textures. I find my hair to be difficult to manage in that I want to wash and air dry; but when I do it’s a frizzy poofy mess. I recently got an express Brazilian blowout and it’s improved things so it’s less wild but it’s still a bit crazy. I’d like to ask if anyone knows if a full Brazilian blowout will make a bigger difference or if there is anything else low maintenance that I can try?

My hair is also a mix of textures and I cannot air dry without looking like a mess. One relatively low maintenance thing I do is use baby bliss hot rollers. I can put them in first thing and then go about my morning doing other things and then just take them out and shake my head! It’s really fast once you get the hang of it.


Brands to try:

Get a conditioning treatment and a good haircut from someone skilled with curly hair.
Apply product when your hair is still wet from the shower. Sleep in a silk bonnet or at least throw a silk pillowcase on your pillow. ❤️


Of course! I know it’s complicated but a lot of trial and error has led to this and my hair is the happiest it’s ever been. I do this routine twice a week or so. Also I lied about the Evo hair cream! I accidentally combined the names of two products lol. There’s one called liquid rollers (lighter hold) and one called total recoil (medium hold). I’ve used both but prefer the medium hold one because my hair is pretty thick and wild.

I have thick black Middle Eastern hair and the full Brazilian blowout definitely made a huge difference. It made my hair straight though when it took away the frizz. I’ve done a few keratin treatments etc but it’s a lot of chemicals so I decided to stop. My routine now is I wash my hair once a week and after ~20 min I apply Olaplex no. 6 then use the revlon one step hair volumiser (takes 30 to do my hair which is thick, coarse and long) and then apply Olaplex oil afterwards. I do that every Sunday afternoon and it’s been very manageable for the past few years and my hair looks great for the full week.


Good to know- thank you!

I’ve heard keratin treatments help with frizz but keeps the texture/pattern. May need to confirm that though.

Yes. So will a keratin treatment (make sure to go to a reputable salon that uses keratin without formaldehyde).

What products are you using?

Also, why not blow dry? Or so you air dry when you want it curl/ wave?


Try an air wrap! Doesn’t work for everyone / all hair textures but the brush styler is basically fool proof.

Would see if you could borrow from a friend before buying since it’s a big investment


SC1 try an express treatment first. My hair’s wave is still intact but with less frizz. But like SM1s experience results may vary

Thanks for the tip! I’m not sure if my salon offers the express treatment but I’ll check.

How do you plan out your dates for maternity leave? I do not want to work up until my due date because I do not want the added stress prior to birth. I also want to give the people covering for me some clear instructions and don’t want to deal with going into labor while still in the middle of managing projects. My company does STD for the first 6 weeks but there is a one week “waiting period” that’s unpaid unless you put in PTO. How do you plan your last day knowing baby could come anytime?

Hi Ladies. Jumping into dating and realized I struggle with agreeableness. If I notice they say something rude, might be playing me, or not being as responsive over text, I try to be nice and play it off but will call them out if I’m really bothered. I think I come off as too strong in the early stages of dating, but want to also set the expectation that I don’t feel okay being treated a certain way/a doormat. What do you brush off and what (and how) do you call something out?

I applied to other positions in the same company. What about reaching out to previous co workers at a different company? Not sure how to navigate this… please help.

I have a friend who is 31 and has been single her whole life. She’s been on dates here and there but nothing stuck. She recently confessed she would love to grow old with someone but has no idea where to begin…I had thought all this time that she just preferred her independence. She is introverted and grew up conservative. dating apps are Way Too Much for her and it’s hard to meet people naturally during this Panini. what’s your advice?


Thinking of getting a Dyson air wrap styler. Confused which option to get (when is for fine hair the other is for frizzy hair), and would rather avoid getting the whole set. Any recommendations?

Hair is fine, but curly/frizzy/flyaways. A mix of 2C and 3A.. Roots tend to lack volume, above shoulder length ends poof out. My hair laughs in the face of styling, including Brazilian blowouts.


I’m honestly afraid my boyfriend is drinking too much and I’m not sure what to do about it. Most nights it’s 4-5 beers or so. He honestly didn’t drink that much before meeting me a year ago but at that point he honestly couldn’t drink much because of his living situation and wasn’t making very much. He got a new job that made more and moved in with me and since drinking has become a lot more of an issue. He’s never that drunk, angry when drinking, or driving. I’m just a little worried about it.
