(Another) Quick Minute!

A while back I tried a twist-out. Actually, I've tried several twist-out: none have done it for me. Apparently my hairy was to thin and fine for it to work...
And if the twist weren't pitifully sized, then I'd tried it on bone dry tangled hair... which is probably not the best state to do anything with your hair.

Alas, I gave up and said that I'd just have to be a wash-and-go kinda girl.

But then, Saturday night, I had just conditioned (honey+oliveoil+conditioner+deepconditioner) and cleaned (apple cider vinegar) and decided to be proactive about breakage by doing more than haphazardly twisting or pulling it in a ponytail before bed. I pulled up a tutorial on doing flat twist, which i did to my bang area (I was SO PROUD of myself!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!) before realizing that I was not quite efficient enough to do over my entire head, so I did regular twists over the remainder of my head (about 10-13).
The next morning ( we went to the UniverSOUL Circus) and I undid each twist, separated (is a must for my type of hair), fluffed the roots, and voila! It was so fly! And was not going to pull on my edges! Im rocking it again today (re twisted last night), but I'm def. going to was it tonight before I twist.

I'll try to post some pics of it l8er!

Quick Minute!

This first pic is my hair after a cider rinse, followed by a 45 minute honey, olive oil, and Suave Professionals (rosemary and mint, i think) conditioning treatment.

The 2nd is how I've been wearing my hair: pulled back a little with some twists in the front to frame my face.

I haven't been on in a while: senior year is kicking my butt! But I have a wee bit of extra time this morning before I run off to the bus stop, so here it goes:

Parvenu T-Tree Oil (its more of a light weight cream) is amaaaaazing on my hair! I realized early on that my hair does NOT like heavy products, so this stuff is a godsend. Only problem is that for around $5 a jar, it would only last me about a week and a half to two weeks. My solution to that was to get another, heavier leave in conditioner. I use the Parvenu when my hair is wet and the other for twisting my hair at night.

Apple cider vinagar is great for removing buildup! Just make sure to dilute it with water first! A rinse leaves my curls uber ready and bouncy; just be sure to moisturize afterward.

thats it! gotta go!

Happy Hair Days!!!!!!!
