Sorry I Have Been MIA this Month

Although school is back in session, it really isn't the reason why I have been MIA.  So why have I really been MIA for so long then right? I originally wasn't gonna come back for a while because of my frustration, but I realized that that would be very unfair to you all to disappear without even letting you know I was okay.

I am okay, I haven't been abducted by aliens or gone back to the relaxer.  I will share my reason for my disappearance very soon.  You might have an idea, and your idea is probably correct.  But I will give you the details with picture updates very soon. 

Love ya and take care :)

Mini Twists

Twisted my head up using my world of curls curl activator gel.  I have been experimenting with different products lately to twist my hair with, and nothing comes close to this stuff.  I really don't like being dependent on a given product, hence my reason for finding a back up, but I guess I am stuck for now, lol.

These twists took me about 6.5 hours.  I started at 11:30 pm on Thursday and finished Friday afternoon.  My hair feels a little off and I think it is due to the avocado butter from Mozeke I believe?

  It has wheat protein in it which coats the hair strand.  It probably will be beneficial this winter to help protect my hair strands, but right now, it is a little too much.  And even after a non sulfate shampoo and deep conditioning treatment my hair still feels like poo poo

.  My hair is all twisted up and looking all purty right now so I won't try a watered down SLS shampoo until a little minute from now.  Hope the fro be okay till then *shrugs*  

Here is something else I am sharing, a texture shot.  I noticed this while I was twisting and I stopped for a minute and took a pic.

Cool huh?

Throwback May 2010

These flicks were taken on May 31st 2010, my best friend's birthday!  We were at a local bowling alley.  I can't believe how much the fro has grown in that amount of time.  I could barely even do twists back then!

My four year nappy anniversary is at the end of the month and I will do a few official comparison shots at that time. And a one year comparison shot extravaganza in late November to commemorate one year since I shaved my hair.

Stay tuned.

My First Official Twistout In Over a Year!!!!!

Hi everyone!  I want to give a special shoutout to everyone who has recently started following my blog!  What's up!  How are you guys doing?  Is it hot enough for you out there! lol!  Thank you so much for subscribing to my blog and strap in tight, you are in for a bumpy ride!  To my loyal subscribers who have held it down since day one, I haven't forgotten you! I love you too!  A giveway is in the works for a pair of chopsticks and maybe some other goodies!  Stay tuned!

Okay, yesterday I had the urge to wash my hair so freakin bad!!! OMG!!!  So I did it.  I wanted to hold out for a while but my scalp was protesting!  Between this high dew point, and the heat, all I wanted to do was dunk my head in some water.  But before I did I decided to take my twists down for a twist out.

The twists lasted for seven days.  Not bad.  I was ready to go another week but I am still working on finding a way to remoisturize (yes spell check that is a word cause I said so!)  my hair without having to redo my style all over again due to over manipulation.

It took all of 15-10 minutes to take down the twists and separate the curls.  I added a little coconut oil to my fingers to help lubricate my strands as I lightly separated my hair.

And trust and believe, my  hair looks NOTHING like it did when I first left the house that morning.  The dew point has been at 68 degrees, making the air thick and nasty.

As soon as I stepped outside with all this glycerin on my hair it just went POOF!  lol  I don't care though. 

The only thing that bothered me the most was that all this hair on my head felt like I had my own personal rug or wool coat and it was unbearably hot and uncomfortable.

  So from now until this muggy heat wave sitchi-ation calms down just a tad bit I think Imma be rocking these here twists I put in last night from now on.
