Heck Yeah I like this outfit! (Picked out fro)
hahaha...I just noticed I got the same outfit on again...don't hate! :)
so after detangling a 5 day ole puff I immediately braided my hair up and left it like so for 2 days. I was going to see my boyfriend and didn't want to throw a hat on and a wrap so I slathered World of Curls curl activator on my hair (alot) and undid my braids and my hair was the SOFTEST it has EVER EVER EVER been.
Why? A couple of theories....when I detangled my hair I also for the first time since God knows when clarified. After clarifying I did a acv rinse with a few drops of peppermint eo (essential oil). Afterward, I deep conditioned with Queen Helen's jojoba and placenta cholesterol treatment (I promise I am going to toss this stuff because placenta is a cancer causing agent and my mother and father both had (have) cancer, Nature's Gate Tea Tree Oil Conditioner, Coconut Oil, and something else.
But the thing that made my hair soft was most definetly the WOC activator gel
So the day before I wore this fro, I was in a local store and I saw a lady that I have known since I was 5 or so years old...she works at the store and is one of my mother's friends...very nice lady...
Until she ticked me off about a year ago after I bc'd....when I saw her recently all of this stuff that I had pushed out of my head came rushing back and I relived that day as if it was just a week ago.
I was in the store and I think I was rocking my 2-3 inch long shrunken fro or puff or whatever style I was wearing after I bc'd...whatever it was it was NAPPY. I was still in the mode of seeing all of my friends and family for the first time since my bc, embracing their comments and worrying that they would say something off. And she did. I was not dressed to impress, I was suffering from acne really bad because I was near my womanly thing and I was still using oils and mess on my hair....
Anyway, she was ringing me up and said to me "Lord, you done cut all your hair off and done went and got acne too" That hurt alot. A whole lot. But I didn't tell her that, why I don't know because I should have. Thank God after her comments and others comments I did not cave in and get a relaxer.
And the funny thing is, her hair does not look healthy. It is the same length it was last year, all the time I have known her while mine has grown more than it ever has in a year compared to when I was destroying it with the fiyah cream.
And I am going to make sure to pay another visit to the store with my hair out because when I saw her this time I had a hat on....
