On Vacation

Ok girlies, so I've still got a lot to update you on but haven't had the time. Sorry *sob sob* :-(

I'll be on vacation for a week from tomorrow so won't be able to get any updates in, but I'll be getting my soul refreshed at the Potters House Bible Conference so I'm soooo excited. I'll be repping the natural curlies with my rollerset which I did last night. I was up till 1am doing it - aren't you proud of me. Talking about that, I asked someone at church today how it looked and they said "it's nice but I'll help you flat iron the front so the regrowth doesn't show so much" I didn't even know what to say. I'm still praying that she forgets her flat iron tonight.

I've now got about 2 1/2" of new growth - YAY!!!! It's grown about an inch in a month since the first time I did the twist n curl. And it's sooo soft! My mom felt the new growth yesterday and said she didn't think my hair had ever been that soft - even as a child! I'm so proud of myself for not slipping back into lazy bad habits.

Products I'm using right now:

  • Herbal Essences Hello Hydration Conditioner for cowashing
  • Aphogee Leave-In Conditioner
  • Kids Organics Shea Butter and EVOO Detangling and Moisturizing Hair Lotion - yes, my daughter's! I'm going to order some unrefined shea butter next payday and joing the ranks of the kitchen techicians
  • Ginseng Miracle Wonder 8 Oil and Wild Growth Hair Oil - mix these with the Shea Butter lotion for detangling
  • Perm Repair Setting Lotion+Water+Wonder 8 Oil+Wild Growth Hair Oil for my rollersets
  • Keracare Curling Wax for my Twist n Curl
That's it. I've got some Henna n Placenta with Olive Oil by Hask Placenta which I'm going to try for my next Deep Condition.

That's it for right now. See you in a week.
Till next time,

With the Ginseng 8 oil & wild growth oil & shea butter....
You use it for detangling? so do you wash it out after?

Yeah, I use it for detangling. Cos my hair still wet, I just mix it up in my hands and rub it in real good. Use a wide tooth comb and comb thru. No need to rinse it out afterwards.
