  • Is You Kitchen Clean?

     

    With the exception of the TWA wearers, do any of you still get the hair on your necks lined? I don't. Just curious.

    i do because my locs are still new and my kitchen is still peeping out...give me a couple more months, i won't have to worry about the kitchen any longer because the locs will cover that area.....

    I still have a kitchen. I call them "chings chings"(just my silly vernacular..I hoped I spelled that right). I only notice it when someone brings it to my attention.

    I'm a TWA wearer... and my "kitchen" is all the way outta control.

    I'm scared to go get it lined up, cuz i'll have to hurt somebody if they hurt my precious hair.

    Besides.. when I had locks, and used to go get my line-up, the barber would always comment "Whewwwww girl let me get all the Kunta up off your neck"

    Used to make me so mad.

    LMAO reddy "let me get all that kunta"

    i just cut off the little scraggly hairs myself. i twist and then use some scissors adn while i'm holding the little ends twisted i just cut it off. its unecessary to go to the barber to get something that minor done.

    May I ask a question...because I am so far not in the know.....

    What's a 'kitchen', in your sense of the word? And are there any other words I should be aware of if this is relating to hair? Sorry for sort of hijacking this thread!

    I'm a very hairy girl in general, except on top of my head where I actually want the hair! My hair on my nape is more abundant and messier than I like, so I trim it from time to time, probably about once a month when I notice it looking out of control. I just use my hubby's electric razor that he uses for shaving. It has a "long hair trimmer" adjustment where it doesn't shave it down to skin level (I get the itchies and razor bumps if I do that), but leaves a slight fuzz of hair behind. Before he had that tool, I'd use scissors and two mirrors and trim it myself. No big deal -- it's not difficult. Sometimes I do it myself, sometimes I get hubby to help me. I typically don't "line" it as I don't want the nape hairline to be too angular or abrupt. I just shave/trim a bit here and there until it looks reasonable.

    i'm growing my hair out from a fade. when it was faded I had the back/sides/front lined. Now that it's growing out I'm just letting it do its thang.

    My hair in the kitchen (the back of my neck) tends to be looser in texture than the rest. When I had a shake n go it was like a shag

    i hate hair on the neck of any kind long, straight. Even when my locs grow long i'm gon keep them offa my neck. i've always chosen to keep short hair.

    *Ace9, the kitchen is supposed to be where the nappiest hairs reside. the kinks, beedybeed's, all that. that's where you keep the perm the longest to try to get it skrait. ya dig?*

    What's funny is that when I was permed I thought my kitchen was the nappiest, coarsest part of my hair, when really it was just the part that kept growing out the fastest. Imagine how surprised I was to find out that the hair there is finer/softer than any other section! And to answer the original question I got my neck lined when I had my friend shape up the TWA. That was a month ago, so I probably won't make a habit out of it. It ain't that serious.

    I always have a razor line. I line my kitchen and around my forhead. My sideburns too. I think it just makes me look neat.

    I'm not trying to look like a wild child. But that's just me...

    Never touch it. When I first got a TWA, my stylist cleaned it up for me, but after that, I told her to leave it alone.

    Not sure if I have one...or if I know exactly what u are talking about. When I went to the barber he asked if I wanted to be lined up, I was like huh??? Then he asked if I wanted it circled, I gave another puzzled look. He then said ladies only do the back so he ran the clippers around my hairline in the back. I didnt like, so next time I opted not to have this done...... I dont know I have one cuz when I do my puff, there is nothing left curled up at the back of my neck....

    Got one and its great! Can't see it unless I pin my locs up. The beady beads, rolls etc. are part of the idea of being and living NAPPILY EVER AFTER :-)

    I started trimming hairs back there because they tangle badly after around three inches or so. I always end up with matted little balls of hair at the ends and it's just less trouble to trim the balls away than to make sure this area is detangled all the time. The tanglings due to the collars on my clothes and the curliness of this area.

    Once I started locking the old kitchen disappeared.

    I find it so funny because when I was younger my stylist laughed her butt off b/c I took the scissors to my kitchen : .

    I haven't lined my kitchen since I used to wear a short cut as a permie or when I had a twa. Now my kitchen does whatever it darn well pleases, curls, beads up, whateva, I ain't trying to tame it, I let it do its thing. My hair is happy and so am I :-)

    I like my kitchen. Instead of it having the beady beads, my hair is actually really fine there. I just put some gel on there, brush it up and keep on going.

    Once I went natural my kitchen kind of disappeared. The hair no longer broke off and my hair in the kitchen area is as long as the rest of my hair.

    So no, I don't have that area shaped. My hair is long enough to cover it anyway.

    When I first did the BC, my loctician told me not to let anyone line my hair up ever again. She said that I was missing a lot of hair that could have been loc'd. So I have not touched my BDB's since going natural.

    I knew that I was going to let my hair grow, so I never had it lined. My husband always tells me that I need to be lined and he volunteers to do it for me. No thanks!

    I suppose I'm not sure of the boundaries of the kitchen area, but I do trim the little hairs on the back of my neck. I don't cut any curl/coils/natural hair. It would make my hair uneven or up too high, I think. I just trim off the straight bits that are under my hairline.

    When my hair was shorter I would let my DH clean up my kitchen for me. I just liked the neat look. Now that my hair has grown out it really is not that noticable so I don't sweat it.
