My twists. Can you tell I'm sick? uploadfromtaptalk1352729431019.jpg

Every teardrop is a waterfall
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
I haven't done it yet, but yesterday was wash day and I twisted them, Bantu-knotted, and then sat under the hair dryer for 30 minutes. Then I took the Bantu knots down and let it air dry over night. I'll unravel them later, fluff, and probably pin the front away from my face and let the rest hang. ImageUploadedByCurlTalk1352731886.837902.jpg

Okay. Changed my mind on unraveling my twists. I pinned them up randomly and it's gonna have to work for the day. ImageUploadedByCurlTalk1352745555.073103.jpgImageUploadedByCurlTalk1352745613.379563.jpg

Took down my mini twists. Omg feels so good. Now I need to wash, with whatever I got in there to wash it with. Use that shea butter V05 and some castor oil.

Washed. I was itching. Since the weather is cooler I'm washing every few days instead of every other day. But I could never hang with you once a weekers. My hair gets too dry.

Sealing every night has helped my hair tremendously. No more SSKs and my curls stay defined 6-7 days. Love it!

I took my freshly washed two strand twists and put them on large flexirods. Sat under a dryer for awhile then went to bed.

I usually don't get enough volume in first day hair so I was really excited about this. It looked better earlier. I went to a friend's house to recite el rosario earlier in the night and the next thing I knew I had four pairs of hands in my hair oohing and ahhing.

texture - medium/fine, porosity - low/normal, elasticity - normal
co-wash - NaturelleGrow Coconut Water or Marshmallow Root, Slippery Elm Bark & Blue Malva Cleansing Conditioners
LI - KCKT mixed w/ SM C & H Curl & Style Milk
DC - NG Mango & Coconut H2O or Chamomile/Brdck Root
Gel - SM souffle (winter), KCCC (summer) or CR Naturals Aloe Whipped Butter Gel (year round)
Sealers - Virgin Coconut Oil, Avocado butter, Aloe butter
Ayurvedic treatments - Jamila Henna, Sukesh, Aloe Vera Powder, Hibiscus Powder
.




Thursday - slathered coconut oil on my 2-week old small twists and left (baggied) overnight.

Friday - took out twists and finger-detangled and applied QH Cholesterol over the coconut oil (as I watched the entire first season of Scandal).
Let the cholesterol sit for an hour or two (as I finished Scandal, then I got lazy to wash so watched some anime).
Washed with SM Moisture Retention Shampoo, used Tresemme Naturals as a rinse-out, t-shirt dried until damp, did the LOC method in sections with L - CJ Smoothing Lotion, O - SheaButter Cottage L'oilo (?) Hair Food and C - smidge of QB AOHC.
Braided the sections (2 braids per section = 10 braids) then banded the braids to stretch hair.

Will stretch for 2 days (today and tomorrow) to see if I can FINALLY get all my hair into one ponytail.
The Cholesterol got my hair sooo soft! Scarily soft actually. Got me to actually believe that it is possible to overcondition my hair. Who would have thunk!
My hair is in the 4s, low in porosity, high in density and coarse.

Love: QB - all of it, Bobeam - shampoo bars, Darcy's Botanicals - Pumpkin Seed Conditioner, Coconut Cupuacu Pomade, KBN - Shealoe Leave-in, Oyin - Juices & Berries, Kinky Curly - Knot Today, Ayurvedic treatments, my Denman and the cloud of kinky goodness on my head that I get to play with!
My beloved big second day hair
