Ok, so I just stopped by to show you some random pics of me and xal (my hair's nickname, pronounced zal)


So xal is finally long enough to section with pony tail holders. No big deal you say. But especially with the density of my hair, you can tell it's growing when I can finally fit one around a section.




I actually think this is a cute style. But I already look half my age, and this definitely wouldn't help. Lol.






I didn't post it earlier, because I didn't wear it anywhere. But here's a pic of my wash and go using Afroveda Curl Define and Pur Whipped Gelly...





It's still a bit wet here, hence the white spots. The curl definition isn't too bad, but it doesn't elongate my hair like the KCCC. I've decided, that for wash and gos KCCC will just be my staple product. It's expensive, but since I don't do them often, I think it will be ok. Plus the Afroveda has many other uses and I don't want to waste it on mediocre results.

Btw, did I mention how much I HATE shrinkage. See, I'm back to a TWA when I do a wash and go. Smh. But speaking of length, I posted these in the BAA Challenge thread. But just in case you didn't see them there, here's what we're looking like in terms of length this month. Not to deny growth, but please keep in mind, my hair is completely stretched from my fauz blowout. I say that only because I don't want to confuse real growth for just my hair being stretched. In the future, I will be more consistent with what style my hair is in when I do a length check.












Did I mention I HATE shrinkage. A few times now probably. But I think looking at that last pic you can see why. Lol. Oh and btw, I look so oily because I was in the process of doing a pre-poo.

Antywho, hope you enjoyed the random pics of me n xal. Later!

Hey JnB, your hair is really growing. Looks great. Your hair name is absolutely perfect for you, if I didn't tell you that already.

And ITA KCCC is the best! Your puffs did make you look about 12 yrs old.

Right now I'm using a mixture of EVOO and EVCO. I'm not really sold on coconut oil. I haven't had any spectacular results. So I plan to continue with EVOO and I'll be buying some castor oil this week and may give that a whirl. Although I'm not sure if it's too thick for a pre-poo. I also have heard alot of good things about Qhemet Detangling Ghee for detangling the hair when dry, so I may try that as well.

So, you know my signature style has been the chunky twistout. That is actually in part because when I tried to do a defined one they didn't come out right. I think it's possibly because I hadn't mastered the parting and it always looks weird. Also, I felt like my hair was too short on the sides and it didn't hang by my ears right or something. Well I think it's a combination of getting better at twists and my hair getting longer, but I've finally got a defined twist out that didn't have to be picked out or pinned up, or worst of all, pulled into a puff. Lol.

















Today is Day 2. And they've started to swell as usual. But only a little bit, they're still really defined. I'll post pics of the duration of their life when I take them down. Have a great day!
