Blog Achievement!

Wow guys!!! After looking at so many other Blogs and actually playing around with settings, layouts, and GADGETS!! I finally have figured out how to blog correctly and add all the necessary gadgets on my blog!! Now my blog can thrive!! LOL!!

It does feel great to know that over 500 people have seen my blog!! Now only if I knew how to do all of this 2 months ago!! haha!!

I feel achieved!!!

That is ALL!!

Last week was bun week!!!

Hello Loves!

If you recall from my last post.I mentioned that I had a wavy sew in for 2 weeks. (lol) Well, after 2 weeks I sporadically took it out one night and put it in a bun and went to sleep!! The next morning I decided to bun and I this was going to be my style all week.

Although, two days after the sew in was out, I had finally had time to do my wash routine. I was pushed for time so it was a quick process. I then had a style look that I wanted to do in my head. Two big two strand twist in the front half of my hair and I'd banana clip bun it high in the back! Well those two strand flat twist were fails. My hair was still kind of tangled and wet. So after many attempts I was running out of time and had to get to work. I ended up just regular flat twisting two big twists and banana bunning it! It was a success and very cute. I slicked the edges back with Motions hair wrapping mousse and Egde patrol! One of my players said I had a Princess Diana updo look! I took that as a compliment. But I rocked the Buns all week and it was a low maintenance PS. I was able to work out with this style and just fix my edges and redo the bun if needed each day! Check it out!!

I been Slacking!

Hello Loves!

I realize I have been slacking so much lately on my post! There have been so many things going on with my hair! I have been snapping pictures here and there, so I will be able to go through my pics and make specific post about them. I do plan to do that!! Right now, I am 4 months post!!! (Whoop Whoop) Still a newbie I think. I recently bought a few new things. I have been trying to keep my PJness under control..But ya know how that goes!! LOL!

Recently I had my hair in a wavy sew in...that was supposed to last 1-2 months..BUT guess what. I took it out after 2 weeks! LMAO!! What can I say..I truly missed my hair and being able to love on it! So the sew in had to go and I don't think I will get another one. Another reason was that I had some cheap hair..smh. it was just toooo much to deal with! Smh! So sad I cant even recall the name! Don't want to tho! *shrugs* Then my hair broke off a lot. I was very sad and that there was my confirmation that I cannot deal with the sew ins anymore! BUT

I had a new growth break through!!! MY HAIR WAS SOFT!! FELT LIKE SILK!!! Well at least the hair that was beehived up! When I took it down my new growth was so soft!!! So I have been trying to figure out what I did... I couldn't really get to that hair but I did mix water and Hello Hydration in a bottle. And I co washed once and oiled once. and just left it alone... Soooo maybe thats what I need to do!!! LEAVE MY HAIR ALONE for the most to get that softness. Its still somewhat soft now, but mane!!!!! I need that particular softness back! I will be experimenting!

I have also decided to make a hair calendar hard copy. Its easier and more convenient for me to just write things down and go back to them later. This way I can keep up with styles, hair mixtures, what I used in my hair, etc.

Well Im going to try to catch up on my posts and everything else!! Thanks & comment!!

4 months post & My LOC method

Hello loves!

This morning marks my 4 month post relaxer date! Im so excited!! This is indeed the longest I've gone without a perm. So far its been okay. Some days are better than others. Right now my hair is in a straight ponytail. Smoothed up with the LOC method. I used my aloe Vera juice, glycerine, and water mix for the liquid, avocado oil for the oil, and Cantu leave in for the cream. I slicked my edges down with motions foam wrap and edge patrol!!

This is the longest my ponytail has been!! My relaxed ends are pathetic tho. But im taking care of them. I currently have 1.5 to 2 Inches of new growth in various spots!! :)
Some of the pics are from a failed roller set silk wrap attempt. I took a shower after I sat under the dryer with the saran wrap in the shower and my hair became damp n I lost all my curls. :(

But I was able to wrap it. This is how my hair has the straight look! No flat iron or direct heat over here!!

I will try the silk wrap again but minus the shower after!
