The mini twists are back! They took 10 hours nothing new I watched about 5 movies and completely lost track of time. I washed my hair the night before and used Carol's daughter honey hair mimosa to twist my hair.
So I've been trying to keep a schedule of co-washing every week, and noticed that after about three days my scalp itches something insane...I co-wash it and a few days later the problem returns. I assumed that maybe it was dry so I added oil and Carol's Daughter honey hair mimosa and noticed that the itches just wouldn't go away. I've amped up my workouts but other then working out nothing was different with my hair routine. Today almost mad from the itching I decided to actually wash my hair with dare I say it...a poo shampoo. For those that are newly natural "poo shampoo" contains sulfates and often detergents that strip your hair. I know this sounds bizarre but I needed to strip all the product out of my hair because I wasn't experiencing dry scalp but intense product buildup. Co-washing is amazing but I needed something that would be able to remove all the product from my hair and scalp and get it really clean. I don't plan on using this shampoo all the time but once a month I will be reaching for it to clarify my hair and scalp of any old products. If you are experiencing intense itching and have been co-washing grab a cheapie shampoo and give it a try, you will be surprised at it's relief!
Hi guys so I've been working crazy hours this month but have a few pics that have been hanging out in my phone...I didn't even realize that I hadn't blogged in over a month. But here are some past looks!
It's hot like 105 degrees hot out in Atlanta and I attempted to do a wash and go last weekend and nearly melted under all my hair. So these twists became the next best thing, I have two large front twists in the front and than about 15 medium twists in the back. This was an easy and super quick style, I'm going to keep them in for a few days before I try a twist out! Stay cool loves!
I've been MiA for a bit but just recently got back from vacation I went to Dubai with my sister and the trip was nothing short of amazing. My hair held up pretty good during the 100 + degree weather but I think I will take my twists down next weekend. I've seen a lot of sweaty days and feel like my scalp and hair can use a really good wash. I have a few pics below.
So I needed to install a protective style and pack for my upcoming vacation, and this past weekend was my only free weekend to do my hair. I washed it and dreaded the detangling session because it had been about three weeks since my last wash (eww) and I have been working out on the regular so I knew all of that made for a long wash day. Anyhoo, I washed and detangled in an hour and than started twisting my hair. I had my hair divided into about 6 sections and worked my way twisting from back to front. Coupled with a few lifetime movies the time flew by. Six hours later including my wash time I had these perfectly mini twists with insane shrinkage. I used ecostyler clear to twists and I happy with the results. See below.
So even though spring arrived about a month ago it's already starting to feel like summer here in Atlanta. Most days are hot and humid, so I rocked a protective style for about two weeks. They were regular medium sized two strand twists, that got super frizzy due to my workouts. So I pulled them in a high bun with a bit of ecostyler gel to hold back my flyways on my edges. In all these twists took me about an hour and a half to do and I only used Shea moisture's curl enhancing smoothie to twists. Today was wash day and now I'm rocking a braided ponytail pics of that to come soon.
So this is a simple and quick style it's two flat twists in the front and then the rest of my hair is pulled into a loose textured bun. A few days ago I had a few braids but they have gotten puffy from wearing my hair down from the week. This was an easy style and worked great for me this week especially since I didn't feel like washing my hair lol. See the pics below
So my absence has been a lot longer than normal, nothing really new is happening with me and I feel like I've gotten super bored with my hair. We are well into Spring but the weather has been super weird lately here in Atlanta so it's not exhaustingly hot but also not really cold. I haven't done much with my hair and it seems like things are finally slowing down at work. Plus I had two vacations that I took back to back and really missed being at home (I'm a homebody)! Anyhow, I'm back and planning on posting more regular since things have slown down for me....this post is about to be super pic heavy because of the styles I haven't posted...but of course it's nothing too fancy lol.
I've been working like crazy so protective styles are my best friend lately. These are medium sized twists took about 4 hours and was done on my old twist out from the other day. I just used a spray bottle to re-wet every sections and eco styler to twist, I actually appreciate the shrinkage they give me a chance to rock them super curly.
So the weather was super nice yesterday and I decided to rock my twist out for a day or two. This style is about 12 large twists and this pinned on one side. I'm currently in the process of twisting my hair back up now...pics of that to come later!
Whoa where are the weeks going, I feel like the month of February is passing by so fast. So last weeks hair, I didn't feel like washing it but I knew that I needed to at least twist it up and look presentable since I had a long week ahead of me. So I parted a small section in the front and made medium sized twists. The remaining hair I twisted into larger twisted and then pulled them into a high bun. I of course used Shea moisture as my styler and my hair felt so moisturized when I took the twists down, that styler will forever remain a favorite of mine. See the pics below.
So last week I wore my hair in two large braids and was told by everyone that I looked like a kid, I pulled my hair up and pinned the braids around into a halo. I'm currently sitting here with my hair in twists but I promise I will post a pic of the takedown. Meanwhile here is a throwback pic to the week after Christmas of my hair, I didn't post the pic because my eye was super red and irritated because of a rouge contact.
PS Shea moisture products are buy one get one free this week at Walgreens, y'all should've seen me running through the aisle to get it this afternoon lol.
Happy New Year! So I washed my hair and prepared it for a perm rod set on Wednesday. My friend's were getting married on Friday and I wanted to make sure that my hair had plenty of time to dry. I used the teal perm rods(purchased from the beauty supply store),eco styler gel and lottabody wrap lotion. I kept them in for two days, I was actually able to sleep with them in and my hair turned out really good. I had a little bit of product that flaked in my hair but it turned out well. See the pics below.
