So Happy!

I have successful done a braidout, after plenty of failed attempts. I think I was making the braids way to small (I was doing something like 30+) and whenever I took them out it turned into a big fuzz ball.

This time I did 10 big 'doo doo braids' as my mom likes to call them and unraveled and separated them in the morning! I LOVE IT!!!

I'm working on day 4 hair and I still have definition! YAY....

IDK why the pic came out so dark, but i'm at work so i'm not even going to attempt to take another! lol

thank you!! omg, I wish it were true. I'm trying to get it together tho.

I was looking at wigsites earlier today!! I've never worn one seriously (only neon and bright afro wigs for costume & Halloween.)

I'm trying to act on my hair boredom in a different way.

Sprayed it with water, raked some EcoStlyer Olive Oil Gel in, then sealed with Koils By Nature Watermelon Hair and Body Butter, and I am having a great curly fro day. I dragged out the EcoStyler on a whim, but I am now re-visiting it. Nice hold, no crunch!

Need to finish up but had a spa like day today, which I hadn't done in ages. Hot oil treatment, shampooed with Kinky Curly Come Clean, Protein Treatment with Hairveda MethiSativa System, deep condition (which is still in at the moment) and still trying to decide how I want to style it.

Micro twists on dry hair. I may trim tomorrow.
Not really happy with my hair progress but I'm holdin onto a speck of hope :/
I cut between 3-4 inches off. Looks and feels better. I was back at waist-length before snipping off some of my older/raggedy ends.

Plan on attempting a Corinne Baily Rae-ish 'do tomorrow.
A wonderful mix of coils, curls, corkscrews, and kinks.

I rinsed my hair this morning (trying to wet it everyday. I like how my hair has been feeling since I'm moisturizing with water everyday) and then I applied some shea-aloe. Hair was still damp when I got my mail (Koils by Nature package! ) so I applied the Koils by Nature leave in conditioner and the hair butter on top of that. Talk about softness. I feel a routine coming on. I'm gonna definitely be reupping on the KBN shea leave in conditioner
I am wearing two strand twists. Although, I flat ironed a month ago and some strands are straight so I put them on rods last night and took them out this morning. I sprayed my hair with Herbal Conditioning Mist and Hair Gloss by Earth's Nectar. Before bed, I spray with Nourish put on a satin cap and go to sleep. I will workout tonight and tomorrow and do the same.
Today I am on day four of sporting my Jill Scott Inspired style. I have the left side corn rowed and I am wearing a twist out on the right side.
