Wash Day 

My beloved wash day.  It had been 3 months since protein and 2 months since henna; it was time.  I started by applying Komaza Pona to my scalp. I leave it on for about 1-2 hours. Then, I washed with Redken Cleansing Cream and let it sit on for about 3 minutes. It’s so amazing … Continue reading

Wash Days Upon Wash Days

Hey, So I’ve been a bit MIA with my wash days. Mostly because with summer and harsh heat waves, it has been really hard on my hair. Sun damage is no fun. Hot, dry outside and cold, dry inside is no fun. Because of this, I’ve had as many as 3 wash days a week … Continue reading

The Style-to-Product Rabbit Hole

   It’s been a long time since I have had one of these without the use of a flat iron or blow dryer.  So here is how this happened: I washed and twisted my hair on Sunday. My twist out was blah but I didn’t care about that. I used my usual Kera10 leave in … Continue reading

Wash Day

Finally!!!!! A wash day. I’ve been stretching the wash days because it’s actually been helping with the moisture, but thanks to a couple of 14 degree days, I was paranoid my hair was dried out and decided it was time for a cut anyway.  Started with Redken Cleansing Cream. Yum!  Protein conditioned with Nexxus Youth … Continue reading

Not Another Wash Day

So between being the habitual nerd and regimen building, I have been trying to conquer this natural lifestyle.   I’ve had wash days, but it’s the products that make and break my wash days.   This is my last wash day. I made my own conditioner which I’m still trying out. Made two different kinds.  … Continue reading

Revisiting Products 

So with the mini chop came a chance to revisit old products. My last wash day, I decided that shampooing was just the most and that I wanted to try omitting it again. Still on the fence with that but I tried my Wen again. I simply put enough to coat the hair, scrub as … Continue reading

Mini Chop

So, I decided to mini chop.  Why? Because I was tired. I didn’t cut all the texlaxed hair, but I got a good amount of my texlaxed hair. I cut because I was tired of having to rely on heat to keep all textures from breaking. Mostly the relaxed ends. Somehow, I needed constant heat … Continue reading
