I wet my hair last night and put it in 6 twists. In my spray bottle was water, GVP Conditioning Balm and coconut oil. This morning my hair was still wet and I had no time to pull out the blow dryer (I'm so not a morning person so I'm always rushing). I took the twists out and it was wavy but of course not like I wanted it to be. Either way, I pinned the front back (as usual) and wore it like that. It's wavy/curly and has no body....but it sure is soft lol!

hey... i dont know if u have an overhead dryer, or how u feel about them, but i read somewhere that if u dont have alot of time in the morning, when u do ur twists or braids or whatnot at night, sit under the dryer for like 15-30 min.... it wont be completely dry, but whoever it was said it helped, and in the morning, their hair was dry.... ive never tried this, but thought i would offer the suggestion anyways... i hope it helps! Smile btw, ur hair is beautiful! Smile

Thanks Free! I have one...somewhere. That makes perfect sense though!

Thanks Koils!

Is it the coconut milk and liquid aminos you're going to try? If so, Breezybaby gave me a tip: heat the coconut milk on the stove for 2-3 mins. It will turn to more of a syrupy consistency so it won't be messy dripping all over the place. Plus, it's already warm so you don't have to add heat for it to penetrate.

Today I did my usual routine and tried a slightly different style...pinned only one side back in the front! Whoop dee doo right? LOL! I fluffed it a bit by shaking the roots when it dried.



Also, here is my 1st headband/earwarmer that I knitted myself! I am a beginner knitter, while I've made a few scarves that's all I can do...anything in a straight line! LOL! I want to learn how to make hats too Smile

In other news, last night I also tried Frizzcurl's oil cleansing method. I didn't use the castor oil because I was scared it might dry out my already dry skin so I just used EVOO. I did use the hot washcloth on my face afterwards for a few seconds. I was actually very impressed at the results. I was waiting to feel dry so I could moisturize like I usually do but I didn't have to. My face still felt moisturized this morning too. Instead of washing my face this morning with my usual cleanser, I just used water and applied my aloe vera gel and a drop of EVOO for moisturizer. I will be doing this oil cleansing method for a few more days to see if the results continue to be great!

I LOVE the oil cleansing method. My face is a lil more oily than dry so I just added 50-75% as much olive oil to my Jamaican Black Castor Oil. It feels great and gives your skin a glow too!

P.S. That headband is awesome!!! I really like the colors-SERIOUSLY, i would buy it. I don't know how to knit, but my old roommate taught me how to crochet one Fall and all I could do was scarves too lol. We made crocheted like 12 scarves and by the grace of God I also crocheted a turtle. It was one of those once in a lifetime kind of things. Somebody offered to pay me to make them a turtle.

Yeah it's so easy to just do a straight line huh? Actually with crocheting making squares & circles are really not hard. Youtube has good videos...I know sweetdrk1 has certain ppl on there she watches, you should ask her.

Yay for you with the turtle! Did you keep it?

Aw well at least it went to someone with an obsession so they'll cherish it for you Smile
Yes I bought this yarn at WalMart. I love multicoloured yarn too! I think this roll was only $2.28 and they had some other nice thick ones for $2.78 that I got too. Of course the plush soft ones are somewhere around $5. Let me know if you make one!

Stay curly for the Christmas photos. You can do an updo and leave some hair out in the front to frame your face. You can practice with hair pins or claw clips. I think an updo would do great.

Another option is to part hair to side and accessorize the side that has less hair with a nice hair accessory.

I hope you have time to experiment, have fun and let us see what you come up with should you decide to stay curly for photos.

Hola chicas!

Today I tried Mixed Chicks conditioner & leave-in (thanks to nmoultry for the samples).
I co-washed with my regular Suave condish, and applied the MC conditioner and left that in for about 4 minutes and rinsed it out.
I then raked in the MC leave-in cond. I kinda felt like I may have used too much b/c I used almost the whole thing but then I figured I'll see what the results are so I can determine from there. I also scrunched in a little Biotera gel to the ends just in case.

I plopped for 15 mins and air dried. My hair was still pretty wet. As it dried it felt really crunchy, which told me that there's a good chance I shouldn't have used so much lol! I scruched out the crunch when it was almost dry (I didn't want to go into work with hard stick curls) and it was mostly soft again. I noticed a lot of clumping, which I like, but not much curl definition.



So, now that I've learned my lesson, I'm going to try the MC leave in again tomorrow, maybe without the regular conditioner, and use less than I did today. And sometimes my hair looks better at the end of the day so if it does I'll let you know and take pic.

I'm getting really frustrated with my hair in the front! Most likely because of the previous heat damage, it will be super curly from the root to about 3-4 inches down and the rest is straight and will not curl! So in my frustration, I just cut 1-2 inches off a few locks on the right side. I'm kinda regretting it a bit right now though because it doesn't really blend lol!

See what happens when you're frustrated and hungry at the same time? Ya do crazy things!

I hope it works for you. I've never use the leave-in and then gel, but then again if you don't like it at least you're not stuck with a bunch of it. I have a friend that uses mixed chicks leave-in and water and scrunch that way. That definitely didn't work for me (the pic I posted the other night). It works with my roller sets pretty good though I guess

Thanks! I think I'll try it with water the next time. I don't hate the results though. Now that it's completely dry it feels better.

Ok ladies,
I need some honest advice! I really like big hair...on other people. I want it for myself too but my hair just doesn't have the volume that it used to. I fluff it up as much as I can and while it does give me more oomph I'm wondering if it really even fits my face. Probably because I'm so used to wearing my hair pulled back in some sort of way I don't feel like it looks "right" on me to be all out. Normally I wear it with the front center pinned back, but that kinda accentuates my big forehead lol! (We are our own worst critic!)

So here are a couple pics. Please tell me what you honestly think looks better:

Front pinned back (the usual):


Or all out and fluffed:


I wear my glasses mostly so here's what all out looks like w/glasses (yes it matters lol!)


I am definitely open to suggestions!

LOL I know I don't always see things the way other people do so thanks for your honest opinion! To me the top is so flat so I get a bit conscious about it so I just hide it by pinning it back.
