Hey! Thanks for stopping by. What dilution ratio do you use for your face? I got it mostly for my hair, but there's so much of it even in the smaller bottle that I figured I may as well try the other uses too.

Good Afternoon (or morning depending on your time zone)!

Sooooo, my hair is STILL in this bun, and I want to wash it and do something else to it sooooooo bad. LOL, but I'm trying to make myself wait a week to wash it which means I can't wash it until Wednesday at the earliest. In the meantime I can look for some new styles to try. Any suggestions? I was thinking about trying this one by BlackOnyx77 (geesh, I mention her alot don't I? LOL) or a puff a la LynnieLuve even if I can't do it with twists because of these dumb permed ends, I can do it with a bantu-knot out. . . I want to try something different. Any suggestions? Very Happy

Until I got those permed ends chopped, I didn't have a heck of lot of choices. You will think of something .... do you rollerset?

I've never done a rollerset. Unfortunately my hooded dryer blew out a couple of months ago, so it only blows cool air, which means it takes forever for my hair to dry that way. . . but do you think I should try that?

Yeah, I'm kinda tired of doing the same thing, for the first few months I did a lot of Bantu-knot outs, then I started trying flat twists. I've never done a braid out, maybe I should try that?

I soooooo can't wait to do WNGs

Okay, so I couldn't take it anymore and decided to wash my hair today. I DC'd over night with a mixture of Suave Naturals Coconut, Castor Oil, EVOO, and Raw Honey. I washed that out and used a little Dr. Bronners before using some Aussie Moist. Here's my hair right after washing with nothing on it so you can kinda see my texture:





and here's the back



and I ended up doing braids in the back for a braidout and using the rods from the sponge rollers I had to do the ends (got that idea from YouTube)



The front isn't bantu-knots, I just kept twisting my hair (not two stranded, just twisting) until it started to almost for a bantu-knot and then I tried to get them to go in different shapes. So they are lying more flat as opposed to going up for the bantu-knots.



I used the headband to lay down the front since it's not twisted, it's just pulled back with rubber bands.

So I ended up doing a kind of combination of a braid out and BlackOnyx77's style. My hands were KILLING me when I first started braiding. Clearly braiding requires the use of muscles that twists don't require. LOL, but I like how the braids didn't start coming apart as quickly.

In other news, I need a tan I'm starting to look rather pale. Come on sunshine!!

I'm hoping the pain will be worth it. LOL, next time I may do them bigger. . . this DOES however demotivate me when it comes to learning how to cornrow. Laughing

Thanks! What color is it? I heard the raw soap has to be a brownish color, or is your bar black? I saw one in Target, but it was actually BLACK so I didn't get it.

I just realized I started my 10th month the day before yesterday! dance Two months to go before I can seriously consider BCing . I don't know for sure that I'm going to BC at a year, I think it's really going to depend on how I feel on May 23. Anywhoo, nothing really going on with my hair today, I left the braids in since I'm not going anywhere and I see no reason to tempt the tangles. But I DID take out the rollers, and I LOVE the way the ends came out, much tighter than they did if I used the spongy part too.





If braiding didn't hurt so much, I could see doing smaller braids all over and using that method to curl the ends. As it is, it DOES hurt ~lol~ but I can't wait to see if it works as well with twists. I can say that sleeping on them without the sponge part was not very comfortable though

and here's now the top turned out dry, I like it!



In other random news, apparently the neighbor on the side where my bedroom window is is having her back steps fixed. It has been a loud and annoying process as far as I'm concerned. I hope they'll be done today, and I'm glad I had that migraine a couple of days ago instead of today.

My Wii Fit is still being funny about my weight, but I see myself getting more toned, so I'm still motivated. Yesterday I did the 30 minute free-run. I admit I cheated a bit, but it felt good when I was done. A couple of months ago, I could barely do the long distance or 10 minute run. Oh, and my new favorite song to listen to while doing the hula hoop exercise is Apache by The Sugar Hill Gang



but I do have to force myself to not get off of the balance board and dance instead. LOL

and yes, this is the song Will and Carlton Danced to:

First braid-out

Post by Muz on 25th March 2010, 2:03 pm

So I took the braids down. I like it for the most part. I think next time I'll do BIGGER braids, less to take down and less parts to cover. Also, I want the curls to be a bit looser. Second, I almost wish I hadn't done the front like I did because this would make a rather kick ass puff, I'll probably do a puff next week. I actually think I like this more than twistouts because it feels like it will last longer.

Thanks! Those parts were killing me though. LOL, I didn't want to manipulate it TOO much because then it would get frizzy, but I didn't want the parts showing either. I can't wait to try w/ bigger braids, the pain in my hands was worth it.

I think doing bigger braids will help with the parts. I took my braids out today and I didn't have to struggle with parts nearly as much as with my traditional twist outs. I actually find the opposite with braids and twists. So far it seems twist outs are better with smaller twists, but braid outs are better with larger braids. Only downside, my hair really isn't long enough to get the braids as big as I'd like.

The funny thing is, I thought I was doing them pretty big. I think I need to just take what I think is big and do it even BIGGER to be on the safe side. So next time I should only do like 4 right? I do agree about twistouts being better with smaller twists

So I took the pics of my second day hair and then I noticed that one of the little non-bantu-knot-knots was coming out and that was all of the incentive I needed to turn it into a puff! LOL And I LOVE my puff, I think puffs are going to be my favorite thing to do while I'm in the shorter hair phrase.

So last night I put the braidout into loose flat twists to sleep to keep them from getting smooshed, it worked out pretty well, I was happy with my results





It's funny, when I was relaxing I HATED big hair, but I'm starting to really like it Smile
