I normally do not cowash, but spring is an exception.

I was still rocking a twist out yesterday when all of a sudden my hair went from sleek to flyaway central. I’d never had this problem, so I figured it was the temperature spike here in NY.

I used the rest of my Darcy’s Botanicals Pumpkin Seed Conditioner since the pump stopped working the last time I used it.


I left it in for 40 minutes while I helped the hubby bake some cookies. No heating cap or steamer. Then I rinsed in the shower.

Now I’m an idiot. I always think I have this little bit of hair or what my husband says “you swear you have bald spots, you don’t have a little bit of hair!” So after I washed, I tshirt dried for 30-40 minutes then proceeded to detangle. I knew I’d be hitting the pillow soon enough so I tried to speed up the drying process while detangling with my diffuser attachment and my blowdryer on low heat setting. I put it on my dresser and let it blow in my direction while I detangled. After detangling with SD Wheat Germ Conditioner and Organix Awapuhi Ginger Oil, I then used the diffuser to finish drying.

Now I just saw a picture of my friends sister who is natural and her hair doubled in volume just by using a diffuser. But you know, I’m not natural and I don’t have a lot of hair so I figured it wouldn’t do much….




Yeah…. Took five minutes just to contain it in a scrunchie.



I love the thickness, but I need my straight hair back. Too bad I have a wedding to go to in a week, so there goes the neighborhood. I know what style I want to do, but don’t want to speak it in case I don’t do it. 8 weeks post and an inch of NG is no joke.
