March random Hair Pics

Here is how my Hair is currently. Just random pics I took of my Hair this Month.

Mar 30, 2012

My present Hair- Freshly Air-dried and no Product *coming soon*

as it dries today haha :)

My Current Regimen *as of April 2012*

Flexi rod disaster *EDITED W PICS* :/

I looked like somebody's great Grandmama and I refuse to post pics! LOL. I am under the dryer right now doing a hair mayo treatment, then the usual shampoo steps. I think I'll post how I do my Washes weekly. My regi is extremely simple and I think I'll post that too. I haven't flat ironed since 2 weeks ago, so I think I'm doing pretty good. I cannot get myself hooked on the Curler/Flat Ironing again. It's tempting but if I want to keep retaining length, I have to keep the Heat to a minimum.


Sorry this one is so blurry:

Revised Hair Length Chart




So where are you? I am still at SL *sigh* one day APL, one day.

I discovered magic, I mean Flexi-rods!

The heat has got to go before I start getting addicted. I need a curler that I can sleep in comfortably. I had already purchased these Flexi- rods

I came across the Hairlista Inc blog today and oh my goodness, Sunshyne did a Flexi-rod set using only 2 rods! I bought 12 and my Hair is no where near MBL like hers haha. Well better too many than not enough. Anyhow I M&S'd and I guess if it looks decent, i'll post a pic of my results tomorrow.

My Hair Type

So I know you ladies follow my Blog and I am soo grateful! Just wanted you to know in case you were wondering my Hair is type 4B. So if you are Relaxed and this is your Hair type, you share it with myself and Sunshyne :)

Neutrogena Triple Moisture Leave In & JBCO

This is a non-Protein Moisturizer. I use this directly after a Wash session and this is one of my Staples. This is one of my absolute favorite Moisturizers. It's a very light creme, pleasant Scent. I mean my Hair soaks this stuff up. Maybe thats why I've run through about 8-10 bottles over the past year *shrugs* hey, what can I say. I love it that much. I use this on the days when I am not using a protein Moisturizer and I usually will seal with Grapeseed Oil. Leaves my Hair so silky and smooth and this is with just using it after washing and tying my Hair down with a Scarf.

I give NTM as we lovingly call it on Hairlista and other Hair forums, a 10. It's absolutely perfect. I cannot think of one negative except, oh...yeah...the bottles come so small and 1 bottles is approximately $7.99. What a rip off :/ But I love this stuff and I'm sure you will too.

**************************************************************************
Now for JBCO or Jamaican Black Castor Oil

Ok I try not to use this too often. I mostly use this when my Hair is approximately 6 weeks Post Relaxer and up when I don't care if my Hair is heavy. This (like all Castor Oil) is thick. So you want to make sure you do not use too much. I have used it in the past for Challenges and I must say, it did give me some additional growth. My Hair has always been thick but it was out of control using this. The smell isn't the greatest,but it's not unbearable. I mean it doesn't bother me at all, some ladies can't stand it. The price of one jar of this is about $11.99. They now sell this at a majority of BSS's in the City(Boroughs really) (I'm in NY, USA) I like it but it's something I don't necessarily need to use in my day to day regimen. I did use it today in my DC and while I have a fresh Relaxer, that's the only way I'm going to use it until I am further along in my stretch.My rating as a scalp oil for this Product is an 8. If I'm rating this overall in my Regimen products, I give it a 5. It's something I can definitely do without. Any questions place below about either product and I'll be sure to answer them expeditiously :) HTH.

Wash Day

I did a Prepoo with Amla,Peppermint and ORS Replenishing pak w heat for about 20 min
Then washed
did my Hair Mayo w heat 15 min
DC w Suave Coconut/Coconut Oil w Heat w heat 15 min
ACV Rinse

I've been noticing a tiny bit more breakage this week, so I felt it was time for a Protein treatment. I don't think I'll flat iron my Hair anymore until Relaxer day which will be in April @ about 9 weeks. I'm only doing it so soon because of Easter

Next product review coming soon! NTM and JBCO oh yes! Stay tuned!

coming soon

I've been naughty with the heat this time around

Oh how I love freshly Flat ironed hair. I cheated and did it 2x this month. I won't do it again but I will be incorporating a blow dry every now and again. I think I will. I never overdo the heat, but I had to do it. I loved the way my Hair looked when I first Relaxed it. I don't think I'll ever get it like that again :(

Wash Day!

I've decided to make today wash day and yes..I made it 2 weeks. Don't think I'll be going that long again but my Flat ironed hair stayed straight. It only got heavy yesterday because I used way too much product on it.
So i'm doing a hard Protein with Hair Mayo
a Regular wash and a DC
and i'm doing an Air Dry
No Flat iron :D tempted..but no. My hair is still really straight from my Relaxer, so I'll do a Blow dry on cool or Air dry..moisturize and put on a Scarf.

Product Review: Palmer's Coconut Oil Formula Reple. Hair Milk

Ok so time for yet another Product review:


This stuff is honestly, one of the best Moisturizers I've ever used. This is a Protein moisturizer. It has Kertain in it. I love this stuff. The consistency is a light creme. Very similar to Triple Moisture. The fragrance..oh my goodness. Delicious. Smells like Coconuts. I love it because it keeps my Hair moisturized without weighing it down. I have 4B hair and so I need something to keep it nice and moist. This will definitely do the trick. If you're looking for a new Moisturizer, you might want to check this out. The cost is approximately $6.00 but hey, the cost tells you that it's worth it. It really is. My rating on this product is a 10. Yep. A 10.
