Return Of The Henna

I know it has been forever, actually I'm not even sure how long it has been since I used henna...but I'm back. I whipped up my mix last Thursday and the applied it Friday night. I used the usual of course henna, green tea and lemon juice. I left it in overnight and then set large twists on soaking wet hair. Last night I rolled the twists on flexirods and then took them down this morning. The result...smooth and bouncy curls. I pineappled it tonight and then plan on washing again in a few days.

Mastering the Perfect Twists

So I know it has been a while since I have posted any updates about my hair, so here it is. I was in need of a serious protective style to give myself and my hair a much needed break. I co-washed my hair and then place into four large twists. I grabbed a jar of pink Ecostyler gel and begun to twists. These twists below took me about two hours to complete. So I decided to come up with a pros and cons list of a wet twists set vs. a dry twists set...
Wet Twist Set
-wet hair is easier to twist and can use less products
-can be easily washed 
-twists outs look great
-but the shrinkage is insane 
Dry Twist Set
- last much longer than a wet set
-eliminates shrinkage 
-the hair is stretched so it, has a tendency to get frizzy quick 
-trying to do a twist out normally won't work since my hair didn't get a chance to set
In all, I think I like both sets it just depends on what I plan on doing with my hair, when I need something quick a wet set always wins.

Stepping Out of My Comfort Zone: June

Sorry this post is a few days late, but I have been a bit busy and well things are always crazy during the summer. Anyhoo, I tried sushi this month, I went out with my sister and a few friends and everybody else at the table ordered it, so I figured why not. Ummm it definitely wasn't what I expected...but I finished it. I just think it's something you either love or hate lol. 
P.S. I'm wearing my hair in a twist out from the twists I rocked last week...I have been really lazy with my hair these past two weeks. But Sunday will be my next wash day.
