    I had simple even though it was longer, comb it and go. Now I have to wet it down to get the areas that are standing straight up to lay back down.

    And buzz cuts look really good on some women. I'm not one of them.

    That is precisely why I keep my hair shoulder length or below, comb, pony and go, no gel, no hair spray, no curling iron, no fuss, just go

    Smart move. Now you've learned from me why you need to not get a wild hair and go nuts.

    I didn't mean to be. I didn't even catch that until you pointed it out. Sometimes I'm a little dense.

    I don't think I'll do the coconut oil again, I had some issues getting it back out of my hair. Good thing I caught it when I did because I had to leave the house.

    OH really? I'm sorry. I haven't had any issues in all the time I've been doing it. I figured it would be great.

    The little bit that is about three inches long felt really soft, I was liking that. Then I saw it in the mirror and I got confused. Did I wash it out or not?

    I thought maybe you'd have something to say about I did something wrong.

    I don't think that you did anything wrong. You can try it again using hot water to rinse it out if you like but hot water is not really good for your hair, it causes it to be brittle, dulls the shine, etc. but it would probably help get the coconut oil out. Also, how much did you use? I don't recall if I gave you an amount to use. a TBSP is more than plenty with your hair as short as it is, maybe even a little too much, start with a tsp or two and see how far that goes, increase a tiny amount at a time until your whole head has some on it but it doesn't need to be greasy. make sure you massage it down to your scalp really well too. You can also shampoo it out if you like. The results should stay the same if you got it down to your scalp and left it there for 15 minutes, your scalp will have absorbed the nutrients in that time.

    I'm here to tell you it was way more than a tbls.

    I did shampoo it. The night I did it and the next morning when I realized there was still a bunch of oil in it.

    I got sick of dealing with hair so I had laser hair removal. Best thing ever. Good luck with your locks and im sure its not as bad as you think it is. Use it as a statement of change! hehe.
    Luckily, it will grow back.

    LOL johnny, unless I plan on wearing a wig full time I won't go the laser route.

    One laser treatment did it for you or did you have to keep going back for a while?

    It’s been six (ish) weeks. Your hair grow enough so you don’t quite hate it??

    Ah nope. Still hate it but now I can pinch the hair between my fingers in the back. Before it wasn't possible.

    And biting gnats love all of that exposed skin. One got me on the ear and couple got me in the neck.
