Weekend Wrap Up

Hope everyone had a great weekend! It's never long enough for me..but oooh well!

So, I did detangle my hair and this is the amount of hair I lost through finger-detangling and detangling with a comb. This is a combination of shed hair and minor breakage.  It seems like a lot, but that's 2 weeks worth of hair, so I am not too alarmed.

I ended up wearing my hair like this on Saturday and Sunday. (sorry camera phone pic because I didn't feel like getting the digital camera)
I am 12 weeks post relaxer and itching to relax, but even if I wanted to, time wont permit.
Whenever I reach 12 weeks post, I contemplate transitioning to natural, but will I? No. Haha. I decided I will go back to natural under 2 circumstances.
1.) If my hair gets seriously damaged
2.) If I so happen to stretch longer then 9 months.

I started back on my MSM. I will be taking 1,000 MG/Day which is 1/4 tbspn. It's great for hair, but my main reason for taking it is because my skin is at it's best when I do. I have a healthy glow and my dark spots fade so much quicker. I haven't taken MSM in about 6 months, so I think it's about time I start again. The best brand in my opinion is Trimedica Opti Pure MSM, so thats what I'm taking.

Another Confession, I haven't gone to the gym in about 2 weeks. I do crunches at home, but that's not enough for me. My excuse for not going was because I "needed" new sneakers. I went to the mall on Saturday looking for some Reebok Easy Tones, (funny because I never wear Reebok) but they didn't have my size in the color I wanted. So, I opted for a pair of Air Max's. Got home and hated the way they looked. So, today, I will return the Air Max's and hope to find some sneakers to my likings.

 This nail polish was a b*tch to get off. I used like 2 tablespoons of Nail Polish remover and still couldn't get it off last night. And to top it off, I ran out of the remover. So I woke up at 5:30AM this morning, got ready as usual and went to Walgreens to buy some Acetone. It's not too good for nail health, but I was determined. I ended up removing the nail polish and doing my nails, but I am tired as who knows what.

Fab Chicas

I know it may seem like I have hundreds of posts on Solange, but I just love her hair...and this is a hair I have to display it!

And of course the beautiful Cassie. I love how this hair color looks on her!

Quick Tip- Seamless Combs

Do you suffer from Mid- Shaft Splits although you are doing "eveything" right to your hair?
Do you have weak hair strands?
If so, one thing you should evaluate is the comb you are using.
Now, we all know, when initially detangling or combing our hair in general, a wide tooth comb is preferred.
But sometimes you have to take an extra step and choose the "right" wide tooth comb.
Seams in combs can cause damage to your strands, so the best option is to use Seamless Combs!
They are typically more expensive then your normal comb, but worth it in the long run.

Now, instead of running out and purchasing a seamless comb, you could:
Soak your comb in water for a week or so
Then file the seams off

I was introduced to one the Seamless Hercules Sagemann combs by and I could feel a change in my hair especially since I previously used combs with seams.

Jill Scott

Doesn't she look beautiful?!?!
Not sure if this is a sew-in or a wig...but I LOVE it!

Now, if I could get my braid-outs to be this big and nice, I would have no problem with big hair on me.

Twist-Out #FAIL

Yesterday was wash day and while detangling I always put each section in two strand twists to keep the hair out of my way and prevent further tangling issues.

My Hair was about 80% dry and I just sprayed new growth with my spritz and added a little EVOO to my relaxed ends. Then I detangled working my way from the bottom to the top.
 I added too much it looks an oily mess..but if I were actually planning on doing a twist out...I wouldn't add that much oil

This is how the twists usually look- I had to block my face because I looked a hooottt mess mainly because I am growing out my eyebrows.

I wasn't planning on wearing my hair out at all because I already decided to bun all week...but this is how my hair looks when removing the twists. I added a flower in there because my edges weren't slicked back and look extra frizzy.

* more blogging until I return. Works going to be crazy busy and I want to enjoy each state and city I visit!!
