Nothing really

Since the hair show last sun I haven't done anything to my hair. I'm just riding the hairstyle out. Got a lot of compliments on it and I do like it a lot but I can't wait to wash my hair. Once I do wash the style out I'm going to put my hair in the same coiled style that the top is in but just bigger, don't really hav the patience to do small coils. I'm definitely going to clip off the rough ends completely. It will go back and at least my ends will b better. Till then night!!

Just another day

Last night after I finished blogging I decided to do an overnight oil treatment as I was planning to was my hair today. I used an oil mixture that I made consisting of EVOO, peppermint EO and castor oil? Maybe not sure about the last oil. And I bought some oil from an Indian grocer which is suppose to stop breakage. I put that on the scalp and did a quick scalp massage, donned a plastic bag and called it a night

This morning I co washed my hair and detangled and left my hair in 5 big twist and tied it up n a towel. About a hour later when I was ready to style, my hair was so soft and moisturized. I keep tellin myself to do this oil treatment regularly and I think I'm going to make a valid attempt at doing so.

I took out the twist and sprayed some leave in conditioner and smoothed some shea butter, fluffed and put on my flower. Even now that its completely dry there's still some softness to it

Natural- versary

This month of July represents my 3 year mark since my last relaxer. Im trying to find pictures of my hair before.
A couple days ago I did my first puff and I LOVED the way it came out, dont you? Its full and beautiful. Its a little lopsided but it was my first time doing this. To get this I co washed my hair, which by the way Ive been doing every 2nd day since it warmer out, I brushed up the sides and applied some Activator grl with aloe to moisturize and some Lets Jam soft hold to keep it together. I used a leg cut off from an old pair of pantyhose and tied around until I felt comfortable.

To cut or not to cut

is definitely the question. I havent had my hair trimmed in about almost 2 years and my ends are starting to feel rough and you can definitely tell the difference from the ends and the rest of the hair. So I decided to so a very little trim and mayb Ill do this every 3 months until the ends are all gone. Now I understand why people dont like to get their hair trimmed. I feel like I should just cut off the bad ends off but then thats my growth that Im throwing out the window, so like I said I do a baby trim every 3 months until it better.
Im just backtracking because I just realized that I posted the pics of my hair in the curled twists without showing the twists before the curls. Im really enjoying how my hair has been looking these days!

After the Twists are out

this pictures shows how much growth was made during the challenge. the top white fuzz ball is where the extenstions met.

Once I took out all of the twist I oiled my hair and did a 24 hour hot oil treatment. Once that was done this I carefully detangled each twist strand by strand, so I could retain as much hair as possible. Until now, Ive always just combed out the knots which is probably why my hair "never grew" I know now that I just wasnt retaining length. I learned this technique of detangling twists from Grow Afro Hair Long and I think that was the best piece of hair information that I have discovered thus far,
The big puff of hair on the right side is what came out from me detangling each twist, strand by strand and the left side is from when I detangled while co-washing.Here is my hair after the whole ordeal.

remember how I told you that my hair got completely pulled out in Feb 08? Well here is the current state of that section of hair. There is no longer a bald spot and the hair in that section is growing fine. Im so Happy. Ive been waiting so long to do some "Chiny Bumps" or Bantu Knots, whatever you wanna call it, becauseI couldnt because of the hair loss in the middle but now I can!!!
