Wash day /Flat Iron

I just bought a new Ceramic Flat iron, my first one ever and I couldn't resist flat ironing my hair tonight. I haven't flat ironed for about 2 weeks, so I think I'm safe to do it again. I used a Semi-permanent dye for these dumb Greys (Reviving Colors) in natural black. I use IC Olive Oil Reconstructor after that, did a moisturizing condish w Suave coconut and ended w an ACV rinse. I've just prepped my hair for flat ironing by spraying Aphoghee Green Tea Reconstructurizer and some Elasta QP Design silk heat protectant. My hair is pretty wet, so I'm going to let it Air dry maybe 90% and then blow dry the rest w a low heat setting until it's completely dry. I don't think I'm doing the flat iron tonight simply because I'm tired but who knows. Maybe I will. I just hope it's not in vain. It's been pretty hot this week and this may be the last time I flat iron for a while. I'm trying to get used to braidouts. Tomorrow I will be 14 weeks post relaxer. Still pushing for 6 months. That yet remains to be seen if I can go that long without a retouch. I've noticed the Sulfur oil is making my hair feel so soft. I mean, I was washing my Hair and I couldn't believe I was this many weeks post relaxer. I bought some MSM pills today and OMGosh. Seriously these pills are huge! I wish I would've known. I took the first one today and almost choked O_O. Oh gosh. I don't know if I'm finishing the other 89 pills. I'll let you all know on that. Enjoy your weekend. I should have some pics as usual coming soon.


  1. lmao @ the huge pills! I used to use everything at the start of my journey now I'm just trying to be consistent with a regular MV.

  2. OMG, I know what you mean with thoso huge pills!! I bought some Omega 3 pills and I'm regretting it.

  3. Me too! I have to psych myself up to take some of my supplements - especially the 1000mg l-Lysine tablets, those suckers feel as big a kitchen work surface when they go down!

  4. @Ebony I never used to do supplements and I only said, let me try MSM since others are getting good results. But these pills are ridic!

    @Kim they're awful and a lady told me that she takes smaller ones. I have 88 more to take :( I don't know if I'm going to make it

    LOL @Simply oh my gosh..what are I-Lysine good for?
