Still going strong...



This is all I have been rockin all month and the reason why I haven't updated in forever and a day. Nothing really new. I recently started to rebraid my braid outs every night and I wonder why I haven't done this any sooner (I guess because of all the manipulation) . But to be honest, I don't really care about all that right now. If my hair grows to bra strap length or beyond it does and if it doesn't it doesn't. Ya know? I need a break from all that strict 6-8 hour twisting sessions every two weeks and long detangling issues. I'm on a vacation from protective styles for right now.





For my braid out I use world of curl's curl activator gel and comb out spray, palmer's coconut lotion and shea butter. I'll come back later and explain the order of how I use these products....








Urban Outfitters for $10! I went in there to buy the Obama shirt I saw but saw this one and thought it was flyer. I got asked if I was campaigning for him in Walmart lol.....I also got asked if I was wearing a wig or weave in the flea market and then he asked me if I was sure it wasn't (da hey?) I told him Im pretty sure its mine since I grew it....
Anyway, I love this shirt, def one of my favs....ya'll dont laugh at me when I be rocking this shirt AFTER the elections now...lol ;)

Braid out? Twist out? IDK, my hair is out


I am so ready for spring. Although I said I was on a protective style challenge until March, I think I have had enough with them for right now. But I don't think I did such a bad job considering that I have been wearing protective styles almost nonstop since July. Right now I am ready for big hair and I am experimenting again (this is how I got into trouble last month with my "experiments").




With this braidout I am actually on day 3, and every-night I rebraid my hair is about 15 or so big plaits (under 30 minutes) and take them loose the next day (15 minutes)...since the air is dry outside and its still kind of chilly I take this opportunity to slather more aloe vera gel and shea butter and whatnot on my hair every night and put a shower cap over it and let it marinate while I sleep. So far so good....I will report back next month when my hair starts breaking off again from all this manipulation....


RIP to my kitty in the background.


Afrika, My Afrika




Just had to share my new shirt. I got it at Kohl's and I was very suprised when I saw it because normally I don't see black countries represented in Department stores.....but I think its a pretty cool shirt, just had to share it with my stylish nappy divas....
