Hair Texture
Apr 29, 2010

My first hair shots & beyond the firsts. The red tint you see in some pics is from the "red-eye" camera flash.

Wash and Go

These aren't true wash-n-go pics. I never just go after washing. It's a crazy long process of detangling and working products through.

Product Reviews

This will be an ongoing album/project. I'm still very new to this world of natural hair and I'm learning all the time.
**UPDATE** 11/10/10 Qhemet is my staple line. I have used the Ghee, Honey Balm and Alma Olive Cream consistently since my mini BC in October 2009. I also still use Vatika, ACV rinces and I'm loving Terressentials as my hair cleanser. My ends seem dry and I'm considering a steamer seriously.
**UPDATE** 1/26/10 Still using Terressentials and Qhemet. Now weekly deep conditioning with a new steamer.
**UPDATE** 5/19/11 Terressentials stopped working for me. In April I tried the new CON Argan shampoo. Ehh. I don't hate it but its not the old CON. I'm sticking with it for now.

Flat Twists

My styling routine since October of 2009 has been Sunday visits to my best friend in DC for her to do my hair in flat twists. I usually wash at home and go to her place where she does the twists. I go home with wet, twisted hair and then take them out in the morning. This method keeps my hair feeling very moisturized for the week. I think it's a much better method for my hair over the wash-n-go. I guess I just need to learn to do them on my own!
**UPDATE** I stopped having my friend do these in Spring 2010. Since then I've been doing wash-n-gos. I still think this is the better way and I wish she lived closer...lol

Denman Pics--Please read update

I use a Denman with nine rows to detangle my hair and help distribute products. I experience a lot of shrinkage even without the brush, but with it my hair shrinks even more. I really like this brush and I don't have problems with breakage or hair ripping.
**UPDATE** 1/26/11 I'm taking a break from this brush.
2/24/11
Ummm...yeah. I can't say for sure if this is the culprit of my severe splits. I read other reviews from people complaining of hair ripping and breakage. This brush did not rip or break my strands. I got my first relaxer when I was a child and I continued to relax my hair until 2009. I NEVER had damage like I do now. Ever. This happened after several months of use with this brush.

The Art of Steaming

I'm having a few issues with my hair. The most serious is mid-shaft splits. I have no idea what has caused this and I couldn't be more upset/pissed. Perhaps I'm not doing enough to keep it moisturized so I've purchased a steamer and plan to deep condition with steam weekly. Ughhhhh.
