My Stylish Knitted Neckwarmer

Just wanted to post a few pictures of the neckwarmer I knitted, isn't it cute. I love knitting but only things that do not take long, maybe two to three days are the max. I get bored with anything that takes longer. This is my most favorite, took me just two days to do. The flower is a clip on that I can clip to a matching hat, or wear on my hair. Check it out, man I am loving Picasa!

Yesterdays Hair

So this is yesterdays and the day before hair, and I think also two weeks ago in the purple shirt. Isn't it cute? Check out my little coils on the sides, gotta have those.

These are just a collage of the twist outs I have been wearing for the past few weeks and I am loving them. This style gives me so much more different types of ways to wear my hair: pinned up on one side, or both to sport a fro hawk, or pulled back and sporting a headband (my fav).
I keep this style going for a week by retwisting with a special hair mixture I made that keeps me hair super moisturized. I noticed that after I washed the other day and detangled I had little to no hair shedding, unbelievable! The pics in the green turtleneck are of washed hair so it is a little shorter but as the week goes by it gets bigger. This style is great for the cold winter days because I am not wetting my hair in the mornings, the bad thing is I can't put a hat on it. I'll figure out something.
And stay tuned for my Happy Birthday Hair video, the countdown is going on. December 27!!!!!

Happy Birthday to My Baby Girl

Happy Birthday to my Baby Girl Hannah, she turned four on this past Saturday and we partied all weekend with her. She had a great time at her birthday breakfast and then on to Chuck E. Cheeses, because she talked about that place for months. She is a hot mess but she is also the best. Happy Birthday Boonkins (yeah that is her nickname). We had a wonderful time at the movie The Princess and The Frog was great, even I can't wait until it comes out on DVD.

I Got Big Hair

I love my hair today, it was big. I have been wearing a twist out for the past two weeks with a cowash in between, re-twisting every night except for last night when I said forget it and put on a satin cap and went to bed. The results this morning were great, I was expecting more flatness but was pleasantly surprised that I had only a little, I put some oil/shea butter on my hair and fluffed and was out the door. I loved my big hair today and got several good comments on it.

One funny thing: I knitted a scarf on my loom, thinking my hair was going too big, I made a big hat to fit over my expanding hair, when I put it on I was cracking up laughing. I guess I will take it a loose a make a smaller one. Anyways enjoy the pics below.

I got a Revelation on this week. AAAAh (the sound of the angels singing). Anyways, I washed both my daughters hair on this weekend with Aussie Moist shampoo and conditioner, then deep conditioned with my Hawaiian Silky Dry Hair conditioner and I must say their hair loves the Aussie ya'll. I washed, put in globs of Aussie conditioner and detangled, their hair has never been softer, I was in such aww. Their hair has never detangled during a wash, the Denman rolled right through. I have to say I was so used to using "Black People" shampoo and conditioners and not getting the results I wanted and I never thought to try anything else. This all came about after I did a product overhaul of the things under my sink (that post to come soon) and the only cleanser left was the Aussie and Aubrey Organics, I decided to give the purple bottles a whirl. Afterwards I did a few two strand twists on my seven year olds hair and rolled with rollers, she wore the cutest twist-out ponytails to school, my four year old unfortunately got her hair blow-dried and flat ironed this was best for me cause it will last for three weeks straight. To make a long story short Aussie will be number one choice for shampoo days with the girls. I looove it, sorry no pics to post though.

Happy Birthday to my daughter

Today is my oldest daughters birthday, on this day seven years ago she came into our lives and things have truly never been the same. She is an amazing girl: friendly, talented, smart, and not to mention gorgeous like her mother. Oh, and natural. I am proud of her.

Just A Quick Pic.

Here is a picture I took on Saturday, this is freshly washed hair about 100% dry. This style is done using the same technique in the TWA refreshing video. I love they way it is growing and getting thicker by the day. I only have one issue, my hair is growing quick but the sides are growing slower than the top and the back and I don't know what to do about that, any suggestions? I'm open.
