Being Natural Rocks

So yesterday I started to detangle my hair and noticed that it was alittle difficult to do, mainly because I have been too lazy and I have not performed this task in about two weeks. Bad Natural! Well when the regular brushes I use were not working I just stopped altogether and finally decided that I might need a Denman brush. I kept putting off buying one because I refused to pay $10 for it, but I went on to Sally's anyways. The sales lady and I got to talking about hair after I asked they had a cheaper one and she said no :( after talking bout brushes I learned that she use to be a fellow curly and she wants to go back, on top of that she gave me a $2.00 discount on the brush. She rocks! I came home happy to perform the task at hand. I love the Denman, I wish I had bought it earlier... but then I would not have gotten the discount. LOL! I detangled and put in two strand twists for a twist out for church today. Below are a few pictures of my twist out, achieved using a spray bottle filled with water, conditioner (?), and oil. I don't know which conditioner was in it but my twists and twist-out turned out soft and great. And there are a few picutres of my girls, aren't they cute.

The past few weeks since my last hair update have been wonderful, I have been in hair heaven with my new simple hair regimen. I am coming up to my one year anniversary of being natural and have finally figured out what my hair likes and doesn't like...yeah it took a year. So, I decided to keep it simple until the end of the year with no special hairstyles, ie my twists, but I am still using my shea butter, just can't live without it, I was on a protective style challenge with twists but the last time I took the twists out I just didn't have time to put them back in. So the rest of my challenge is consisting of this: co-washing every Saturday and a deep condition, throughout the week I apply shea butter/coconut oil to my hair every night and in the mornings I spray with warm water and apply some Hawaiian Silky Curl Activator. If you recall the last post was about the Activator that I am still using and loooove it! My hair is doing wonderful and stays moisturized and soft all day. I didn't shampoo my hair, I figured if I am only washing once a week I shouldn't need to shampoo but once a month, we'll see how that turns out. But on the other hand, if I am clarifying once a month do I really need a shampoo? What you think?

This past Thursday I also did a henna treatment, I decided to check out the India Mart here and see if they carried some "real" henna and they did, my product of choice was the Reshma brand just because a fellow blogger always uses and gives great reviews. I have to admit I loved it too, not to mention it was only $2.99, after mixing some EVOO with it I applied it and let set for almost two hours and rinsed it out it gave my hair a great shine and even brightened up my hair color some more.

Stay tuned for my next post, I will be cleaning out my bathroom cabinet and getting rid of the products I don't use, lets see what I find.

Good reading

I just finished reading Push by Sapphire aka "Precious", you know the movie coming out about the pregnant girl with HIV that Oprah and Tyler Perry are promoting. I love reading...usually I read a book in a few days but it took me almost two weeks to finish this book. If a movie is coming out that sparks my interest that was a book, I like to read it first and then see it because they are always different but I have to say I have never read a book so raw and open, I opened and closed this book at least three times amazed at what I was reading before I actually got into the book. In the end the book turned out to be alright once I got passed the language and what-nots, if this had been a true story though I would have been weeping while reading. It was real as real could get, knowing that people especially girls actually go through what Precious went through. Regardless I think this book was a good read, if you like reading and can get past some of the language and circumstances then you may like this book.

Hawaiian Silky

So Saturday was shampoo day and deep condition day and that is exactly what I did. But I bought two new products: Hawaiian Silky Gel Activator and Hawaiian Silky Dry Hair Conditioner. I must say that I loved the results of both, I use to use the conditioner when I was relaxed and decided to give it another try and I am glad I did, it worked great on my hair. Also the activator was plus, my hair usually gets crunchy when I use some products, that's 4a/b hair for ya, but this time it didn't, my hair is soft and I got great curl definition that you really can't tell from the video posted. For the next couple of weeks I decided to give my hair a rest from the twists and "let it do what it do", this activator is going to my number one product.
