So... 4a/b's What did you do to your hair today?

Like Tree1294Likes

I cowashed again. My hair is dry like it typically is after a henna. Takes a minute to recover.
Wash, DC, twists. Two of my twists have little to no curl at the ends. That bothers me. I think I stress them too much when I use headbands & ponytail holders. Going to have to return to low manipulation styles.

I'm cashing out
About my hair:
weekly shampoo-HE Honey I'm Strong
daily conditioner-HE Honey I'm Strong (use as li)
go to style-Pocahontas braids
so umm the weather dropped and so did my curls. Gotta let go of the curl activator gel.


I guess I have to do my hair tonight. Its been a nice 3 week run lol

Washed with Trader Joe's Tea Tree Tingle to get the initial gunk out, then two rounds of Terressentials Lavender mudwash and deep conditioned with my new Jessicurl Deep Conditioner w/ my heat cap. Luv how the Jessicurl felt when I applied and rinsed 30 minutes later. Used my As I Am Leave-in to do 8 chunky twists and sealed with my oil mixture. I can't wait to take my twists down tomorrow!
(Current Rotation) Shampoo: Trader Joe's TTT, Terressentials, Elucence, Curl Junkie Daily Fix Conditioner: Tresemme Naturals, Curl Junkie Curl Rehab Leave-in/Moisturizer: Qhemet's BRBC Gel: Tresemme Oils: Grapeseed, jojoba, evoo, sweet almond, castor....BIG CHOPPED AGAIN!
Rinsed out my overnight rhassoul clay mix, then proceed to DC with Shea Bliss by BeUnique and I twist up using the moisture custard and mango butter from the the BeUnique range.

Loving my rhassoul clay sessions. I mixed in cocoa butter and dark cocoa butter and coconut oil with hot water and i am good to go. loving the soft fluffy results.
Tuesday 09/11 pre pood , washed and braided my hair for a braid out. Next day hair was still wet and poofed so pinned it back

Wednesday 09/12/ set hair for braidout with Entwine products

Thursday re twisted at night for Twist out and bunned in back with Coco curls
I have my hair in braids i'm going to take down later for braid out. I have avoided protein since my henna treatment but I think it is time to go back to my protein ro. My hair feels a little too soft. Borderline overconditioned mushy.

Five hours and twenty minutes later, I finished my mini twists. You can bet they're staying in for at least two weeks. Before and after.

I have barely done anything to my hair this week. I washed Monday and left the twists in till Friday. No bueno. My hair was super dry and the ends started to tangle for lack of sealing. I thought maybe a ps would allow me to go longer without washing but no. My hair needs to be washed at least every third day.

4b mostly, with some 4a

Loving my hair as God intended it to be!!
Hey there!
Since I have some tight 4a curls in the front I wrapped them around my finger to make them look like the curls on the crown. Didn't really work the way I wanted. They coiled too much (even though I didn't use the coiling method). You can see in the second and third picture that the curls near my forehead look different then the un-fingercoiled ones higher up my head. But I think it looks cute. My hair is long enough for a semi-updo now!

Today is my wash day. Normally I co-wash and then twist, but it needs a shampoo to get rid of product build up.

Saturday I put my hair in a ponytail and left the bangs twisted

Sunday I took the ponytail down and moisturized, put it back up. At night I french braided the ponytail and retwisted the bangs with Nothing but Curly Pudding and Curl Sealer.

This morning ponytail'd again and twisted out the bangs

Think Ima wash, condition, and retwist it. Maybe not mini twists but not big.

So I attempted to color my hair over the weekend and...well...

I used Clairol Professionals Demi-Permanent in 3R with the warm booster...





Took the plunge and decided to do my whole head for the max time of 45 minutes...





But, no dice, the color did not take...






I am gonna say that demi is just not for me. I need lift and not only deposit. The only areas with some change are the sections of my hair that were already lighter from this summer. I called Clairol today and the CS rep, very nice lady named Laura, told me for naturally darker shades, I am going to need some lift. I told her I wanted a deep auburn/burgundy and she recommended their Liquicolor Permanente in 64r. However, she warned that although the demi may not show, my hair is still treated and I should wait 4-6 weeks to make sure it is out before processing again...I guess I can wait...

I can see some color. Maybe demi is like henna in that for me it takes a few days for it to look like I colored my hair. Actually my hair color both natural (reddish brown) and hennaed are only super apparent in bright sunlight. Indoors people think my hair is black.
