BPD Support Group Anonymous 3847[Reply]

I've noticed it seems like we have no shortage of people with BPD. I thought I'd start a support group thread. Share your experiences, vent, and be sure to let us know when you are able to stop yourself from engaging in disordered thinking or behaviors!

I don't have anything to add, but I'm finding this thread a really good jumping off point to helping myself. Thank you OP.

I've seen quite a lot of these actually they had some similar ones in topshop last summer but they were mid to high-waisted whereas the ones in the photo are low-waisted

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.

I found this top on the UO website and I thought it was cute and unusual but I have no idea how to style it, any ideas?

Anonymous 5175

Personaly not my style, never liked sheer tops.
But Pastels like in the pic, maybe a scarf or a loose jacket?

Anonymous 5176

I’d wear it with high waisted/wide leg black trousers or light blue denim mom jeans/wide legs

Anonymous 6218

You could try it under a pinafore dress or similar kind of sleeveless dress?


Dresses for my body type Anonymous 5024[Reply]

What are some good brands/stores to shop for this body type? I'm having a real hard time finding dresses.. Measurements are.

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.

I found video related, it seems like it may be worth a shot.

Anonymous 6209

>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.

Your hair looks so healthy!

>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?

Anonymous 5013

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.

Do you think the curvy meme is a real thing which is gaining traction outside the internets?

>high test goes for big curvy women
There are definitely sticc men into that though. It's almost a meme, I've seen many skeletons with women like you describe…but also seen some buff boiz with them. And I've seen those high test threads on that bodybuilding site lol.
Also, where do "thicc" pear shaped women fit in here? A-cup titters but big hips and butt? That's one of my favourite bodies for a woman (speaking as a bi woman though…also as a narc since that's my body). Are they thicc stacey lite?

>shit genetics
Not really sure what's bad enough about this body type to be worth calling it "shit genetics". Average is average.

Anonymous 4949

My BMI is 21 and the internet thinks I'm a fat cow too. Someone on /lgbt/ told me at 5'7" I should weigh no more than 120 pounds, and blamed my weight on me being American.

As a word of advice, don't post your weight on an imageboard and instead listen to what your doctors tell you. Imageboards are full of trolls and anachans who are severely triggered by any mention of weight so it's best to just keep your mouth shut about that topic in general if you don't want to be bullied.

Anonymous 4951

Not only weight, have you seen what they say about other girls' faces? She's disgusting, her nose is too big, her face is too long, her lips are too thin etc. It's not like you can change those things naturally and then when someone shoops themselves to "correct" these things they shit on them even more.
It's so dehumanizing, they don't even see these people as people, but as dolls or images, I mean don't you have friends who look average? Do you shit on them because they're not model tier? You don't, you see them for who they are, people with their own lives and personalities, who have more worth than just their looks.
sorry for off topic rant. It just makes me so angry

Anonymous 4952

I imagine the people who say these kinds of things are very insecure about themselves and putting down other women somehow makes them feel better about their own averageness/ugliness. For instance, if you read through lolcow's /ot/ or /g/ you see girls complaining about how ugly and fat they themselves are.

Lolcow is a cesspit of insecure, mentally unstable women who feel the need to bully others because they feel like shit about their own lives. People here seem to be a lot less like that, which is probably why we moved the fuck away.

personal color analysis? Anonymous 4938[Reply]

has any of you had a personal color analysis done? was it worth it? how much did it cost you?

I'm sort of intrigued but not sure I want to drop ~$200 on it…

Anonymous 5011


I’ve been tempted after my own research into improving my aesthetic but I’m also p sure you can DIY this. There must be sneaky PDFs around to learn how to do it. I know they have fabric they drape on you but surely this can be diy-ed also?

Usually charts finding your undertone is a good place to start anyway, that takes into account your skin colour, hair colour, eye colour and vein colour (lol). That’s freely available online, just google and find a place that explains it best~!

Like you I would like the actual full analysis but it’s so expensive and I’d have to travel to somewhere that does it, which is more money. One day when I have the extra cash and I haven’t worked out how to do it myself I’ll go, but otherwise nahhhh.

It's all bullshit. I'm supposed to look good in grey and pale blue because I'm a light summer but actually it just brings out the redness in my face. and I'm supposed to look bad in black

No, I look good in every color.

>I'm supposed to look good in grey and pale blue because I'm a light summer but actually it just brings out the redness in my face.
I think you might be fall, like darker warmth to subdue your complexion, not summer. You couldn't be summer at all if you have problems with redness in your skin becoming apparent when you wear pale blue, someone has told you wrong.

>and I'm supposed to look bad in black

You can't bring up black to knock color theory.
Every living thing on the planet looks good in black, it's an absence of light, your brain isn't getting as much information and so whatever it's perceiving is more stylized and simpler, hence 'better' and more striking.
It's why the "little black dress" safe choice exists at all.
