Air Drying Time

Nothing new to write about. Oh wait yes, I did an ACV rinse, I have to take some time to write that story but for now here is a pic from this morning with my lock loops on day 2. I couldn't take a pic on day one because I had to drive (yes drive in the morning commuting traffic) with my lock loops in because my locks still weren't dry after 10.5 hours, wth? How long does your locks take to air dry nowadays? I'm still have no plans to use a blow dryer or sit down dryer so I better make time for air drying.

How do you do it?

If you recall in one of my blog post I switched to washing my locks weekly because they looked so fresh and I would always get compliments after a fresh wash. The 'fresh' look wasn't happening after a while and it felt like the dirtier my locks the better they fell and curled. So I went back to washing every other week. With my bimonthly washes I use the SL starter shampoo for one wash and Suave clarifying shampoo for the other. On the wash I use Suave I follow up with the SL moisturizing conditioner. As my locks have gotten longer and have more hang time, during my workouts I feel and see the perspiration dripping from the end of my locks. I just purchased ACV and I have yet to try it but based on what I heard it will give my scalp a good clean feeling. I know I can't use this weekly. So for this reason, I'm going back to weekly washes so I ask you.

How often do you wash? And do you use the same product each time until the bottle is finished?

Thank you for keeping me blogging!

I'm a bit late, but I want to recognize the first day I started my blog which was 4/9/09. I started this blog with the intention of documenting my journey which I didn't know what to expect and I think I've done a pretty nice job of doing so. Of course I deviated from time to time and I took hiatus when I had nothing to say. However, if I ever had a bad hair day or bad day at all, I could unconsciously lean on my blog family. Over the course of the year I have met some great woman with a strength that is undeniable. I want all my followers to know that I appreciate every comment, question, and even just a thumbs up that you have given me over the past year it is greatly appreciated. As I noted in another post I will continue to blog and keep my dedication to my blog the same as it was in the first year.

Stay tuned for more product reviews because I've become antsy for some new ones I'm definitely in the mood for some new styles!

Looks this past month

Normally I do not put any products in my hair for styling, but I think its time. As you will see in all of these photos the curls in my hair are GONE!! I just have to find a good product for hold, and that's also a good hold for after a workout which is key!

Note....I'm prepping my daughter for her photos...check the crook in her neck!!LOL!

Share your Compliments!!!

Compliments tend to come when your feeling like its time for a retightening or you did absolutely nothing to your SL's.  Please let me know what was the best compliment you have received to date? Was it a total stranger, loved one, friend, co-worker? And how did it make you feel?

We get them all the time, please share....

What is your staple style?

Out of the 7 day week, how do you find you wear your hair the most? For me, I find that pulling up the front with maybe a few locks hanging works best and its the easiest.

Here is a picture from this morning with a bantu knot out that I used no product for so the curls are almost nonexistent.

Curls be gone!!!

Although I should be writing up procedures or something I decided to flick a pic of myself. Here is my curls after using the jherri curl rods on Monday night. As you can see from the first picture which is today the curls have dropped although its quite hot in the tri-state. The second pic is the curls when I first took them out yesterday, they were loose but that was good. I pinned them up slightly during the day and did the same today.

Just a quick updated..letting you know growth is internal!

For the past month I have been diligent in keeping up with my health. I implemented taking the following every single morning:

Daily multivitamin
Wheatgrass smoothie - not my recipe just taken from another blog.

I didn't notice anything different about my locks until I started my most recent retightening. I'm almost complete and in doing it I noticed tons of new growth in between my locks, lots of strands of hair sprouted out around my locks and not just stubble. It was enough growth to pull into the surrounding locks. I must say I'm quite happy about that and I plan to keep up with my vitamins and smoothie. In addition to the stray hairs, I noticed a growth spurt. I haven't been wearing my locks out since the weather has finally broke so I'm trying to keep my locks off my face and neck but once I do I will do another comparison picture from even a month ago.

You always hear that your hair shows the health of your body internally and I must say this change internally is exuding externally.

Nothing much else going on with my locks, I haven't tried any new styles, but I have got some ideas in my head that I need to try, but since being able to pull my hair in one bun, my ease of that has taken over...but I will try something new within this next week. My color is doing well and I haven't experienced any issue thus far since getting them colored.

I will be back when I have some additional time to post new pics!
