Okay, I feel that I am finally ready to purchase my first pair of LL hair sticks!!!  I wasn't sure if I had enough hair to get much use out of them, or if I could think of enough hairstyles, but after more experimentation today with my cheapo sticks I feel I can finally give it a go Smiley

This one is kind of weird and to the side but, I'm sure I can make up different things as I go along.

Oh, so you're husband's a lab lover too, how cool.  They've just got the funniest personalities, this is the first dog I've ever had, and I just love her to pieces.  She's six now, and she's just maybe starting to lose her puppy edge, she's finally starting to settle down more, but there's absolutely no hiding her excitement when she encounters new people.  What can I say, she's a lover!  Grin

Some Q's for you-
You keep mentioning that you have to use a relaxer on your hair, is this a chemical relaxer?  Is your hair only straight when you straighten it yourself?

I know you said that you don't care for jojoba oil on your hair, but maybe when it's diluted with the aloe juice and spring water it won't be so bad.  You only need a little bit of it in comparison to the other ingredients.  I only say that because jojoba is the closest thing out there to natural human oils, so I would think that it should be one of the best.  I've heard that (I think it's) sweet apricot oil is supposed to be very good too...maybe I'm thinking of sweet almond oil & it's just apricot oil, without the "sweet".  Hmm, I have to check into this now!

When you say that green tea is good for the hair, do you mean just drinking it?  Or is there something else that you do with it?  I'm thinking you mean just ingesting it.

And this one's not a question, just a general comment about Lysine.  It seems to be good for a lot of stuff, I take three every day, it's great for the immune system and fighting against infections.  Particularly good for cold sores, too.  I choose natural remedies as often as possible, I'm not one much for meds unless there's no other way (which there usually is  Wink).

Last thing- That new dress you got, is that one you actually plan on wearing, or is that one of those things that's meant to just be displayed?  Hopefully you get to wear it, it's too beautiful not too!

I'm very sorry to hear of your mother's passing.  I cannot imagine your loss.
Sounds like you and I have more in common than wanting long hair and loving hair toys.  I have a sister and we are as different as night and day.
People who know both of us can hardly believe we're from the same family.
My sister lives on a farm in Michigan raising cattle and has 3 kids.
I live in the dessert, teach yoga and have 3 cats .
I'm not sure we've ever agreed on anything, our POV's are so different.
My sister and I didn't get along until after I moved out of the house.  I only speak to her occasionally.

I hope this doesn't sound harsh, but what other people think of your spending habits or earnings is none of your business.
So what if they think you spend too much.  That statement is about them, not you.  I've also been in this situation with relatives and as a child I felt guilty over it.  I think we want everyone to be happy like we are, and if they're not we feel bad.  Again, its their problem.  I'm not saying to not be compassionate for others, we all make our own choices-with or without awareness.

OK-I'm leaving your journal now, I hope I did not offend.

Hi La_Diosa!

Sorry I'm only responding now, I usually try to stay off the computer over the weekends, I kind of forbid myself to use it.  The weekend...by weekend I mean Sunday, which is my only day off (usually), anyway, I always try to allot myself some "freedom" time to be creative and away from technology.  Usually I'll paint or read a book, or like yesterday, spend lots of time outside with my pup.

I'm glad to hear that you like the LIS, it works so wonderfully on my hair that I've been using it every day, at least once a day.  I like it even better than just applying the jojoba oil straight to my hair, it seems to have a nice effect when it's blended with the aloe juice and water.  So, aloe juice tastes like crud, eh?  I thought about drinking it too, it's very good for you, especially for healing stomach ulcers.  I couldn't get myself past the smell, maybe it wouldn't be so bad mixed with juice?

You remind me of my grandmother (don't shriek!) when you talk about wearing dresses for no special reason.  That's her to a T.  She's 83 & a knock-out, and she wouldn't be caught dead in anything but a dress or a skirt, coordinating jewelery from head to toe, and matching heels and purse.  You know, she still gets asked out, even wedding proposals!!  I pray to God that I age like she did!

About the Lysine, yes, I started taking it on my own for an immune system boost.  I really do not bother with medical doctors if I don't have too, so I went out on my own to get it.  I bought it at my health food store, I always make sure that what I take is pure, vegetarian friendly, and has no chemicals or other crap in it (like GNC products).  To be honest, I really don't know what effect it has on hair or hair growth, I will look into that.

As for gelatin, I suppose it is good for hair and nails, but being vegetarian I would/could never take it.  It's actually pretty gross stuff.  Lips Sealed

My sister and I are like yours and Sakina's, definitely night and day (me being night  Wink).  I'm tall and thin with brown straight-ish hair, she's short & thin with brown/black wavy to curly hair.  Our attitudes, tastes, styles & choices in life are so dramatically different.  Like you and your sister, when we are together ppl cannot believe that we are related, let alone sisters!  They think we're putting them on!  She did and continues to do the college thing to get the prestigious job, loves lots of shiny gold jewelery and jewels and dresses to be socially accepted.  Me?  Not so much. Tongue  I gave college the bird (as you did your alopecia  Wink) and decided to go out on my own, make my own job.  I wear little to no jewelery, not even my wedding or engagement ring.  And as for what I wear, it's whatever my little heart desires, society can kiss my grits when it comes to acceptance.  It's funny, you said you usually end of modifying your clothes to get what you want, I do that too.  I often buy something not because I like it as it is, but because I see potential in it.  Out come the scissors, needle & thread, safety pins, or whatever it takes to get the job done.  My trash is forever filled with denim scraps, straps from this shirt, a collar from that shirt, and sleeves from a few others.  My husband has come to expect it by now!

(((Hugs))) I'm so sorry about the loss of your mother.  I can't imagine what that loss feels like, it must leave a hole in your heart.  From what you said it sounds like she was lots of fun, I bet you have a million good memories of her.  Thank God for memories, huh?

Boy this is long, I'll stop taking up all this space in your journal now.  Bye!  Grin

My hair was doing so great over the past few days but today, it decides to be uncooperative. Angry  It became very crunchy and remained that way no matter how much oil, serum or aloe spray mixure I gave it.  After trying everything I could possibly think of, in vain,  I decided to do a CO.  My hair is air drying and feels better now, I'll have to see how it is once it's dry.

YAY!!! After having my brand new elliptical sit in the box for over a month because Sears dragged their feet about sending someone out to install it, they finally came yesterday.  They installed it in all of 4 hours, I have no idea why it took so long but after waiting 6 weeks for them to show up at all, I didn't even ask.  It works great, I've really been feeling the burn!!!  I definitely like working out on machines than without them, I just can't get an intense work out otherwise.

Actually, you spelled acupuncture perfectly.  Smiley  There's a very good possibility that your alopecia could be helped.  Acupuncture has cured my SIL's infertility, she became pregnant within 4 sessions, it has made my MIL pain free from her three herniated discs.  That one is really miraculous, she was in so much constant pain, she was nearly ready to dump a bottle of pills down her throat and end it all.  Not really, but she got to the point where she said she understood why people in chronic pain often purposely OD.  She is now 99% pain free.  It was also greatly helping another loved one of mine who suffers from severe anxiety, depression and alcoholism, he was making leaps and bounds but then made the devastating decision to stop going.  What a mistake.  Anyway, if it could do all that I believe there could be hope for you too.

Me and my sister, who knows why we're so different!  Just different genes, I guess.  I still love her and on some level we are a little the same, but definitley from different planets!  It's wierd because my brother and I are like one in the same.

Flowy dresses....love flowy dresses!  There are so freeeeeeeee!  Grin  I am quite comfortable in a flowy dress and a pair of sandals, I have a very earthy side and this suits it just fine.

I don't think gelatin has anything to do with sharks, maybe you're thinking of shark cartilage.  I'll still spare you of what that pretty jiggly stuff really is though.  Lips Sealed

You've piqued my curiostiy with the alopecia/acupuncture thing, I'm going to look some info up when I get time.  Ha!  When I get time, I'm so funny!
