Synthetic compound designed to bring the dawn of a new age. It mimics the mass-building effects of testosterone at excessively efficient levels without most of the repercussions regular test would have. Doesn't work well on men due to existing testosterone keeping it out of the system.

Yep. Wasn't meant to be, but that's what it became. What do you think?

Who here is Januhairy? Anonymous 4933[Reply]

A month-long campaign encouraging women to grow out their body hair is happening for the first time

I really like how pubes and armpit hair look on me and other women. But somehow I still can't get over leg hair. It just seems so masculine, I don't really know why, I can't help it.

Maybe because smooth legs are such a hallmark of femininity.

I feel the same even though I don't shave my legs. I feel self conscious about it and always keep them covered.

Lol I'm in Ireland. Are you in the US because I feel like the US puts way more pressure on women to shave? But even saying that, there's been a trend lately of American celebrities like Miley Cyrus and Lady Gaga showing off armpit hair, even on the red carpet. I think they look really cool!

What kind of program? Something like Starting Strength?

Anonymous 4592

No, I "graduated" from that. I did StrongLifts for about 3 months then moved onto a program that my friend wrote.
This January, I plan on running nSuns' 4day program and add in some glute accessories.

Any tips/resources for starting jogging? I tried c25k last year but hurt myself in the third week. I think because my form is bad and I heel strike.

I keep hearing about how flare jeans are slowly making a comeback and it makes me think about what 00s trends are going to start reappearing again. Like exposing your midriff and lowrise jeans.

Joni jeans from topshop might be good for you? They stretch a lot so they'll fit both your waist and hips plus they're quite flattering

Anonymous 6217

Have you considered buying a dress to fit your chest and hips and then taking it to a seamstress or tailor to have them take it in at the waist? It’s worth the money for the ideal fit, especially with dresses as they tend to imply a more elegant look?

Coloring hair at home Anonymous 4948[Reply]

Hey /hb/, does anyone here have experience dying their own hair to avoid spending insane amounts of money at the salon every few weeks?

I'm trying to get my hair this color (my natural color is currently a 2-3 shades darker). I got it done at a salon last year and they didn't use bleach, just dye. I've seen some decent tutorials on how to lighten hair without bleach but the color always seem to come out as this unnatural yellow color instead of natural dirty blonde which is obviously not what I'm looking for.

So yeah, if anyone has any expertise or questions of their own, post it here!

NTA but those dyes have bleach already in them, there's no way to lighten hair without bleaching. Sorry. The only thing you're saving yourself is the extra step of bleaching first, then coloring.

Anonymous 5026

You can lighten it a few shades with honey and cinnamon powder but it takes a long ass time

Anonymous 5029

I think they're just taught that all box dyes are crap and parrot it. They genuinely believe it because in the West that's how the industry works.
In my home country (Eastern Europe) you go to a hairdresser for a haircut, highlights etc that you can't do by yourself or they come to your house if they're a friend. However, where I'm from you can find professional dyes in local drugstores and dye the hair yourself if you know how, hairdressers here use a mix of box dyes and pro dyes themselves and will even recommend good ones for your hair based on their experience. Basically they get business anyway because many people don't want to dye their own hair for fear of making it look patchy, they don't give a shit what dye you'll use since they know you'll bring it to them anyway and here anyone can buy "salon brands" so they don't bother shilling anything.
I've never heard any of them say box dyes are crap, just that certain ones are too harsh and poor quality.

>Can you really recreate salon quality using things from the shop?
I’ve seen some amazing results from Lush’s henna blocks but they only come in red and brunette shades.

Try looking up tutorials for lightening hair with hydrogen peroxide or honey. Since you’re already blonde it should be really easy to get good results.

Type 4 Hair Thread Anonymous 4864[Reply]

Are you 4a, 4b or 4c?

What products do you use in your routines?

What is your favourite protective hairstyle?

Are you natural? If so, how long? If not, why?

Posting hair inspo is encouraged! And feel free to ask questions no matter how silly :)

>inb4 we already have a hair thread
Type 4 hair is harder to maintain and has overall different needs/demands compared to other hair types.

>Pic related is my hair 4 days post twist-out. Would you say my hair is 4c?

I'd say 4c tbh

>I’d also love tips on how to straighten it.

What is done in this video is pretty much the same thing my hairdresser did! Straightening by yourself can be challenging at first but once you get the hang of it it'll be okay. The hardest bit for me is to straighten the back, since you can't see the back of your head

Anonymous 4922

Thank you for the help anon. What's the name of that video? Also, how do you maintain a twist-out for more than a day or so? Like what do you do with it at night?

"KERACARE THERMAL WONDER CURLY TO STRAIGHT"
Oh and I don't do anything special at night after a twist out since my hair is pretty short. It becomes coily after a few days so I just spray a bit of water and use an afro pick to like, add volume (??)
what happened to your previous post lol

/cgl/ merge Anonymous Admin 6195[Reply]

After discussing this in the chat last week, I have now moved the threads from /cgl/ to this board.

A few users requested I rename the board to something like /bb/ (beauty board) or other abbreviations, but the platform I'm using right now does not allow renaming of board URIs. I'll do this once we're in the process of moving to a different board software.
