My lapatop was idle and my screen saver was scrolling through some pictures from the Atlanta Aquarium when this one caught my eye. Thought I would share it just because, you can tell it was our first time there
Tonight I washed my newly colored hair using the new Loreal Sulfate free shampoo...
I am being good and using the right shampoo on my hair, you know the one for "color treated" hair that I used every once in a while the last time. I decided I wanted to try this on my hair, seeing that she does not like sulfate, my hair gets very rough after a shampoo. Now that I think about it I still have a huge bottle of Tresemme Naturals under my sink that she does not like, been trying to give that sucker away.
This Loreal is a keeper, it really reminded me of my Shea Moisture Retention shampoo I use now, my hair was left so soft and still felt moisturized after being rinsed. I did not get the conditioner cause I used what came in the box with the hair dye which is a great two minute conditioner before I DC'ed, I may buy it next time though just to try it out.
In all, I feel like this is going to be a good shampoo to go to for me.
For first time use I give it a 5.
I got busy with some shea butter and coconut oil this morning cause I am addicted to it plus I was out.

The coconut oil is especially for my Baby Girls hair, I apply it every night and braid it up, it leaves her hair so soft and manageable which is a definitely plus for me. One thing I need to make is some more of my Twist and Shout Gelly, that stuff was the bomb.
Also, I work with alot of ladies so I decided I would make a variety of scented shea butter for them for Christmas gifts, I think they will like it.
Last weekend was so busy that I did not get to post what I did to my hair, which was alot.
Getting right to it...
I colored it...
...compared to this red, it is gone.
I used Clairol Natural Instincts 21G Caramel Creme and I have to say I was not going to color it just cut the red off, but I know good and well I was not cutting so the next thing was to color and I love how the results turned out. The dye brand was great my hair was so soft after my deep conditioning session under the dryer (not that it was dry before) and it is still rocking that softness today as I type. I haven't washed it since, but that will be happening maybe next Tuesday night before Thanksgiving, I am looking for a good color shampoo, thinking about trying Loreal Sulfate Free shampoo for color treated hair.
I also bought Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioning Milk, I used it as a leave in a on top of my coconut oil and castor oil mix, man that layer rocks together, my hair loved it (I seriously think that is why my hair is so soft) I used the conditioning milk twice more this week during my nightly retwisting. If you have not found Shea Moisture it is a must try the three products I use so far are great.
Now I must vent:
I am so loving my hair and how it is growing and maturing, I am not concerned with length cause I got it you just can't see it. I love my hair and all it's glory and love wearing it big and wild and I think it likes to be, during the day it seems to grow a little more until at the end of the day it looks like this...
Last weekend I washed my hair but did not "baby" it if you will, mainly because I just didn't have the time. So this weekend my hair is in need of some true pampering.
Today's hair tasks consist of:
1.shampoo with Shea Organics Moisture Retention shampoo 2. condition with Suave Almond and Shea Butter conditioner and finger detangle ( no pulling of the hair today) 3. Henna and Amla mix treatment cause it is in need of one (I may post a video of that if I have time) 4. deep condition with Cholesterol Tea Tree Oil DC 5. Set some twists for a twist out using ???, not sure yet. Off to find something now.
