This morning took down braids and placed hair into bun for work

Tonight I will wash hair and start the PS proces over again. I cant wait until December when I can see all the progress I have made
Dampened it just a littel and went for one more day of bunning.

Killeen Curly MeetUp preparation

I flat twisted and then set the ends on purple flexi rollers for a curly fro.

On Sunday I will be braiding my hair for the week
First I co-washed with Suave Pomegranite. Then I shampooed my hair with Kinky Curly Come Clean. After my shampoo I conditioned with Giovanni smooth as silk deep moisture conditioner. I rinsed half of it out and followed it up with Suave Coconut conditioner.

My hair is soo dag gone soft! I love it.

took my twists out for work! man my hair felt great! i twisted it really tiny last weekend and unraveled them this morning. i am def doing that again this week, leaving twisties in locks moisture.
Applied Yes to Cucumbers leave-in conditioner and twisted sections of my hair. I started doing a much needed trim on my hair, starting in the back. Sadly with this trim I'm losing my BSL status but afterwards my hair will look healthier, behave better, and stop tangling as much.
I'll be about an inch below APL after my trim.

I did five much...
  1. Washed with Qhemet's Shampoo because I had a load of Ecostyler to remove.
  2. Did an EV olive oil rinse, rinsed with Honey Hemp and my EO condish to remove the rest of the oil.
  3. Amla/Brahmi mix with green tea which I left on for an hour, rinsed
  4. Cowashed with VO5 and some leftover herbs I boiled for a tea rinse
  5. Yes to Carrots Mud Mask for a DC
  6. Rinsed then poured my tea rinse through my hair to smooth and detangle (hibiscus, burdock root, irish moss, and marshmallow)
Divided my hair into four sections worked some Knot Today into each section and braided my hair with KCCC, I rubbed castor oil over each braid and focused on the ends. I made bantu knots for each braid. I plan to wear a braid out tomorrow.

My hair was extremely soft I didn't lose much in washing or combing, I don't know if it was the oil or the tea rinse.

Did two strand twists last night with Shea Butter (CJCCC on a few strands cause I'm trying to be stingy with it) and added some beeswax- yes, I know it's the devil.

Misted this morning with Mane and Tail leave in (I'm experimenting with this starting today.
Last night, pre-pooed with Aubrey Organics Island Naturals and Auromere pre-shampoo conditioner, shampooed w/ Dr. Liggett's shampoo bar (dry hair formula), dc'd w/ Rapid Recovery (trying to get rid of it!) and twisted with Koils by Nature hair butter. Had a nice twistout today.

I'm trying to use up some of the stash I bought last year and discovering a few nice combos in the process.

Cowashed / Detangled with VO5 Herbal Extracts Kiwi and Lime Clarifying Conditioner, Infusium 23 Frizzologie Leave-in Treatment, Hawaiian Silky Miracle Worker 14-in-1, then scrunched a bit of Ecostyler Clear in. Pulled back with hair tie and air-dried through the day.

Last night cowashed with Elucence MBC, then used Alikay naturals lemongrass leavein , followed by Curl Junkies Aloe Gel and homemade flax seed gel.

Today just scrunched in some DM super buttercream.
did a hot oil treatment and it left my hair so GREASY blah
Shampooed with HHBR Black Soap Shampoo, slathered on a bunch of Afrigenix Berry Smoothie Deep Conditioner (I'll leave it on overnite).

Tomorrow, after rinsing, I'll apply some Give All For Love Summer Love (whipped creamy leave-in), and follow with Koils By Nature Herbal Peppermint Gel and braid it up, for a braidout.

I straightened it on Saturday for graduation on Sunday..and I'm leaving it straightened until I get my trim hopefully today or tomorrow. I can't leave it straight for too long..I get fidgety. But I may try some hairstyles before I go back..maybe a twist out..bantu knots..see what happens!
prepared a batch of Amla w/ a little brahmi powder thrown in and finger detangled on dry hair.

ETA

I applied the amla paste using 150+ grams; I think I got a bad batch. I want to leave it for an hour and thirty minutes but my eyes are getting heavy. I think I'll rinse early.
