My NEW (wash&go) regimen!

Hey Ya'll!!

I am sooooooo obsessed with my hair...
I LOVE my curls, my kinks, even the little knots when I comb through my hair.
I LOVE how EASILY my hair curls up....
I'm just so happy!
I have this new confidence that I never knew I had....My hair is so beautiful.

Anywhoo, This is my WASH & GO regimen...I'm going to wear my hair like this for a couple weeks maybe months, I don't really want to mess with it too much...too much styling can hinder growth! :-(
I'm sure it will change as I gain more knowledge on how to take care of my hair, but this is what I have so far:

----I'm Co-Washing everyday with Creme of Nature Chamomile and Comfrey Conditioner (LOVE creme of nature, been using it since I was little...)
----I shampoo my hair ONCE a week with Creme of Nature Sunflower and Coconut Shampoo
----If I wear my Afro puff, I'll towel dry my hair and then apply Organic Root Stimulator Olive Oil creme for dry hair, and pick it out.
----If I wear my curls, I will pat dry my hair, still leaving damp, with a paper towel (YES, I said a paper towel, lol) and apply my ECO-Styler Olive Oil Gel and a cute headband! ;-)

That's pretty much it for now!

BIG CHOP: 9.10.10

I did it.
I couldn't wait any longer!
I took out my kinky twists last night (9.9.10), I washed my hair and put it in a bun to dry...
I went to class and came home, sat in front of the mirror, ran my fingers through my curls and said to myself "why not..". I looked to my right and grabbed my scissors. The rest is history...LOL
I feel so free...
I shed a couple tears as I cut...but it was SO worth it!

I am in LOVE with my hair...

Happy 2 be (ALMOST) Nappy! *Random Thoughts*

happy to be nappy Pictures, Images and Photos

I am itching with excitement as my natural hair grows, pushing the relaxed hair out of the way...
My hair is still in kinky twists but the hair underneath is growing like a beautiful flower...
I cannot wait until January when I cut my relaxed ends off...... FREEDOM!!
(can't rock the teeny weeny Afro, because of my big big head! :-P)
I'm literally counting down the days y'all..... tick tock, tick tock.....
I'm so in love with the little curls that sprout from my "kitchen" and around my
I play with them all day, take a little grease on my hand and twirl the curls like a fork twirling spaghetti!
I think to myself, one word "beautiful"
I cannot wait y'all....

Happy to be (ALMOST) Nappy!!!! :-)

(all of these thoughts are SOOOOO random...don't judge me y'all!)

My look today!
I was channeling the 80's today in honor of M.J.
I did a braidout and pinned half of my hair up on the side with 3 clips.
(extra thick hair people! LOL)
My mom said my hair looked like the leading lady's did in THRILLER.
I was ecstatic.

One year ago today....

Rockin' his NATURAL froooo!!! ;-)

.....We lost a music ICON....

Rest in Peace Michael Jackson

Gone but NEVER forgotten...
