Happy Birth Day Nicki

I took down the 3 braids I keep my hair in at night(stretch hair for buns) added homemade moisturizer and KMF gel to slick hair back and bun with fake hair thing I made. I am going to try just loosening my ponytail tonight. Hopefully I wont wake up with a headache because of the ponytail. I am getting so lazy lately hummm I wonder what is up with me. The only thing I feel like doing is wash, detangle dc, easiest ps I can find (bun). Hopefully I will see great results from this because I hear so many stories about breakage from bunning all the time. BTW I am switching where my bun is placed everyday (mostly out of pure laziness)
Kudos to my stylist because for the last 5 weeks I've had so many compliments on my hair. She's helped make my 2nd and 3rd month of being natural a great experience. I've had 3 different hairstyles that has lasted me nearly two weeks. Now my hair is braided up on one side and in the back and the rest is two strand twisted. This morning I put my shea butter, olive oil and tea tree oil concoction on my scalp and throughout my hair to maintain moisture and shine. I love just waking up and shaking out the twists and go. This will be my staple style for the spring/summer.

last night:

Impromptu Search & Destroy & trim with nail scissors.

Conditioned with a mix of

Lady Velvet Instant Repair + Nature's Gate Mandarin Orange & Patchouli + Amla Oil. It smelled really good!

...Foolishly rinsed it out with my hair loose instead of section by section, like I'd sworn to.

... 'Le sigh'ed beaucoup about my shrinkage and snarls

Detangled wet hair for the last time I hope ever..

lost a bunch more that when I dry finger dt'd last week.

Braided, took pix, braided, took pix, length checked, took pix and finished the plaits.

listened to audiobook about hawt vampires. (didn't you know that Paranormal Romance books are great for the scalp circulation..lol!)


today
: silk scarf under sunhat
