Look forward to the “before” video. I assume it took a lot of time to detangle! Thanks for sharing.
HELL YES @sprezzatura66:disqus , lol. Yes detangling is the most work that I deal with when managing my hair. My pleasure ;D
Hi Cipriana, do you take out your twists before washing your hair. Do you ever where twist outs?
I’m glad you posted this video cause last night I was tempted to do a mini chop! I b/c two years ago and for the most part I have good length retention. I was just wondering with the crown area for you did you notice that area would grow out slower? On average I have about 10 inches but the crown area is somewhere around 6 inches. Thanks for all you do!
Hey @poetsgroove:disqus , yes!!! For some reason the middle spot of my head grows slightly slower than the rest of my hair. Have no idea why some say blood circulation but I do know it is normal. Also you may have different textures as well. A pleasure as always and thank you so much ;D
Wow that is a lot of shrinkage from hip length hair!!!
Right , shocks me sometimes ;D
i think the thing that has helped me most in managing my hair came right from this site, miss cipriana! now that i work with my hair in sections instead of as a mass its so much easier to work with. no more massive tangles and ssks are at a minimum. i only have 18sections so far, but as it grows i can see more sections will be necessary. the cool part is my hair just goes right into the sections now! nice! please keep the great advice coming! it really is a natural hair public service!
Hahaha, “ natural hair public service!”, I am cracking up and flattered at the same time, thank you so much. Well I am glad you found us and that we can help you along your journey @monniej01:disqus , we always enjoy your comments and advice. Also YES for less SSKs, they really are the spawn of the devil<3
thank you for sharing this video! I’ve been a long time reader of UBB and never commented before. I really appreciate the humor and realness in your videos.
I have 4 type hair too and am rocking a twa. I had locs for a long time but I’m currently trying to grow my hair long while keeping it loose. Thanks to your tips aloe vera and coconut oil are now my main stays.
do you think protective styling is a must for twa hair two? My hair ranges from 3-5 inches stretched.
Hey @a0ec7ce2a450754cf3bdcbf398d844d1:disqus , well hello ;D So happy you decided to comment and thank you so much!!!
To answer your question, you really are at an advantage because new growth is the strongest and you don’t have to worry about your ends and friction but 3 and especially 5 inches of length is a good amount and protective styling will help with less manipulation and keep tangles at a minimum even though that is another plus of having shorter hair, strands tangle less but it is up too you. Short hair is definitely a time to enjoy the advantages of shorter lengths so I would not say protective styling is a must, but make sure you have a satin or silk pillowcase or silk or satin scarf at night ;D
You. Are. So. Pretty. LOVE your hair and your spirit. Love this site!
Thank you so much @a6a7e2d3ad994914e447980e25e50c48:disqus and really glad you found us <3
urbanbushbabes is part of such major improvement in black hair, it sometimes scares me that afro hairdesser don’t know it well and keep putting shiny greasy product instead of nourrishing… well went only 3 times to a haidresser and always combed an prepared my hair before

Remember when you told us to chose between you doing a twist out, braid out, blow out or flatiron? what happened! we’d love to see! my vote was a braid out!
Discouraged about my hair growth. I have 4c hair and developed trichorrhexis nodosa from perms. 1 year after big chop and 18 months post relaxer, my hair is STILL breaking off an inch from the scalp especially at the back .. I guess I’m a back sleeper. What next ? I’m sick of this ‘uneven’ stage with patchy hair, it does not look neat. I stopped all wigs and weaves when i big chopped because i was sick of hiding. Really frustrated and discouraged.
I just recently found your site and I love love love all of the tips that you give. I’ve been natural for a year now and I started out using virgin coconut oil and shea butter. As my hair got longer so did the list of products I used in it. But i found that the one thing that my hair loves is all organic. So now I buy all natural from the health food store and make my own concotions. I love your hair Cipri you are my hair crush.
