Weave Update and Mini Hair Haul

After washing my hair the first time I had realized that the female that braided my hair didn't technically braid up my entire head. I didn't think that would cause a problem until I started thinking "well I bought this weave as a protective style to protect my natural hair from any harm". So I stood away from the flat iron which was not hard to do. Until I realized that this hair tangles up so much and sheds so much I started getting nervous. What if my natural hair is getting tangled up with the weave and some of my natural hair falling out as well when I would detangle my hair. So much hair would just come out the comb and be all over my sink I couldn't really tell if it was the weave coming out or if it was my hair getting pulled out.

So being that I was getting nervous about it I decided that the weave needed to come out. (Already out would make a post very soon). I'm so upset that she braided my hair that way when I had told her at least a dozen times that I don't want any hair left out. "I don't want no hair out except the parts that would cover the tracks" and "I want the hair that's left out braided up". Well I have been missing my natural hair anyway so can't wait to get the weave out. I decided to go out and buy some new hair products for the day I remove the weave. Can't wait to try them out.

Target was having a buy one get another half off so I thought it was the perfect time to try these products 

At Bed Bath & Beyond I got both conditioners and the leave in for $2.99


  1. This is quite an experience for you. Having a weave in our hair supposed to make us more attractive, not to damage our hair. Good thing you took notice and immediately resolve it. Anyway it's been months, how's your hair now? This is a great reminder for all the readers to choose a trusted stylist before going to a treatment. Thanks for sharing. #Wilma_Parker @

So I Made Waist Length

I made my long term goal! I'm finally waist length. I have been on a hair journey for a very long time and through so many trial and errors I found what helped me. My growth has definitely come from protective styling. I'm either doing a sew in and if not that my hair was always in a bun. Also having a simple hair routine is key! Not only that but keeping up with my ends. I plan to get my ends lightly trimmed but the only person I trust is so far from me but very soon I will get one. I might try to do a new hair goal of hip length but honestly not sure having long hair can kind of be annoying, but I'm not complaining I love my current length. 

Am I Protein Sensitive ?

I had recently purchased Aphogee 2 Minute Reconstructor and The Keratin & Green Tea leave in. I felt that my hair was in desperate need of some protein being that it was breaking a lot and because I thought my hair was going through moisture overload. Every time I washed it, my hair will feel way to mushy and soft. So today I decided to try the products and my results weren’t so good. This is what I did :
Shampoo with my Neutrogena Triple Moisture & then condition with the Aphogee conditioner. On the bottle it says to either leave it on for 2 or 5 minutes. I don’t know how long I left it in being that I was in the shower, but I do know that I didn’t leave in on for long because I didn’t know the time and I was to nervous having this product in my hair. I want to say it had to be at least 4 minutes that it was in my hair. Once I rinsed it out my hair felt AMAZING! My hair felt so strong and thick. I was just blown away at how good my hair felt. Usually my hair feels like mush an…

Wash Day

[1] Detangled hair & shampooed in four sections with ORS Aloe Shampoo. I feel that this shampooed is a great shampoo especially to remove build up.
[2] Deep condition with Creme of Nature Moisture Milk Masque. I recently purchased this deep conditioner and wanted to see how well it worked on freshly washed hair. I applied it to my four sections starting from tip working my way up to the root. I put on two plastic caps and left it on for 40 minutes while I did some house cleaning. Rinsing the product out it was nothing impressing. My hair looked really shiny and moisturized, hair detangled rather easily but I detangled prior. First impression it did not wow me.
[3] Leave in of choice was Chi Keratin mist because my hair has been shedding like crazy and Creme of Nature 7-in-1
[4] I also recently purchased Creme of Nature Foaming Lotion. I never used a foaming lotion my initial reason of purchasing this was to do a flexi rod set but I decided to skip that and just braid my hair. I did t…
