i was wearing a rinsed twistout earlier but since im am supposed to be bunning i tucked my ends in

i am officially the Kettle; call me Black. thanks.

I'm better than people who think they are better than others; even though that's hypocritical in itself, im a better kind of hypocrite than others.
Scissor Fun Sunday...lol!

well, "what had happened waz"...I still felt like there were a lot of splits and general unevenness (weird shape) from unraveling my locs.

It's not super-short but it feels much better, less fuzzy (more mini spirals) and seems more responsive to my conditioner.

...Will throw together a photo thingy link soon.

Took down my 2 day old twists. I'm planning on wearing my twist out until wash day (probably on Saturday.)

A wash and go. I'm loving marinating my hair in conditioner, finger detangling, cold rinses and my new Curls like us towel!

-Shampoo - Theraneem Maximum strength Neem soap with Sweet Orange
-Conditioner - Curl Junkie Deep Fix with a few pumps of KBB Hair Milk, and Pumpking seed oil scrunched over condtioner. Rinsed out with a cold water rinse.
- Leave in: mix of Deva Blonde OneC, Abba Pure Gentle and KBB Hair milk on soaking wet hair. Scrunched out excess moisture with the towel.
Out of shower used Sebastion Stylixir and a little KCCC to gel. Air dried.

Hear that crash? It's me falling off the CG wagon.
I retwisted my hair last night. I was getting bored with my hair. Hair feels dry to me so I'm going to do a DT soon, maybe on sat. I'm dying to by some AO conditioners but I'm going to hold off until next month.

I washed mine this morning, put in some leave in conditioner and did a wee bit of blowdrying so that I would stop dripping. Then I picked it out. I want to be able to braid my own hair. Not the extensions kind, just braid it. My arms get too tired because my hair is SUPER thick!
Grade: 4a definitely now that my hair has grown out.

Been natural since December/2008 ^_^ and loving every minute of it!

Not Updated D:

Vegan-ish

Today, I am rocking a frohawk.

I used banana clips and a homemade spritz to smooth the hair up into the clips.

Its my first time and I think I like it.
Dr. Bronner's messed up my hair mojo. Today it was crying for moisture.

- I washed w/ Abba Gentle poo

- Conditioned w/ Suave Strawberry plus these ingredients mixed in:
  • Strawberry & Rosehip oils
  • Glycerin
  • Agave Nectar
  • a dash of Hibiscus
  • Aloe Vera Juice
- Suave sucks for detangling so I once I was in the shower I had to add Giovanni Smooth as Silk to the ends and around the front edges to make combing easier.

My hair feels really soft & moisturized again. Ah!

I'm being spontaneous and washing more this week:

Worked some GVP Biolage matrix balm into dry hair. Got into shower and wet, washed and rinsed.
Conditioner - Moptop Sage with KBB hair milk on ends, then Pumpkin seed butter. Let sit for 5 minutes. cold water rinse upside down. I'm still finger detangling and it's very easy.
Leave-in Abba Natural, then a little bit (tsp) of Sheamoisture for whole head. Used Curls like Us towel to squeeze out excess water.
Gelled with CJ Aloe Fix mixed with KCCC. Air dried.

Hair was only 80% dry (wet roots) when I worked out at lunch and I sweated. After workout I diffused dry, tied it into a loose scrunchy for 6 minutes, unded and fluffed. Hair looks good, a little frizz at the back near neck.

DC'd last night. Braided back and cornrolled front. Unraveled and pinned back into low wrap. Results.

Goals:
CBL Stretched: Reached! July '09
Full SL stretched: Reached, then trimmed off. Dec '09
Even, full NL unstretched
I flat twisted the front of my hair up and put some pretty clips in them. Fro in the back, flat twists in the front! I'm really proud of myself because I was able to do this in less than 30min! Huzzah! It's a really simple/cute style to do!

I'm "TechKnockout" now.
It's 86 degrees, so no protective styling today. One big ole massive curly-puff, and LOVING it. Even with the loose sections that are cooperating more, it looks pretty good. Maybe my hair just wanted to be freeeee.....LMAO!
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.
