Got a Hair Trimmed & Mini Haul.

It has been over a month or two since I had posted anything no excuses here just was busy with my new semester. Worst schedule by the way. I attend class 6 days a week ! It is crazy hectic and I don't know why I pick my classes that way but I will manage .

I finally got my hair trimmed ! My last trim was a very long time ago. I wanted to take a before and after picture of my hair but literally my hair didn't show a difference in length then my last length check. I had notice many split ends in my hair and I was ready to just get rid of them all. On top of that I really wanted to go short like really short, but I chicken out. Maybe I will someday I been really inspired to go shoulder length. I have seen ladies that have this short curly hair that is just beautiful and that's what I want.  My current length is no longer past bra strap I am around past armpit ? Picture below, so it was a big trim. I'm planning to go back in two months or sooner to get another inch taken off. I can still see a few split ends and I want them gone. For now I'm just going to do the search and destroy method.

I'm starting to feel like my hair just stops growing when it gets around bra strap length. I know that's a myth that hair stops growing at a certain length but it just feels that way. Do I have any desire as of now to achieve length like I once was.. Honestly not really, I mean the point of my journey was to get to waist length which is still a goal, but I just want to keep it short so that it can get healthy. Finally the health over length has kick in but yeah... 

But to contradict myself I'm dying to color my hair again!!! But no drastic color change just a light brown hair color. will it happen? maybe no time soon but that's a change I have been thinking about. You can have color treated hair and have a pretty healthy head of hair. I won't be coloring my hair anytime soon I'll just wait once my hair becomes healthy.

Here are some of the products that I had pick up so far. . . . .

Each product was pick up on a whim since I notice that they were all on sale at Target. I really wanted to try the Camile Rose Product so this was perfect timing. I plan on using this as a daily moisturizer. I don't know if that's what its meant for I'm kind of confused about this product. Any thoughts on how you use it or what you like/dislike about it will be appreciated. So far since my purchase I have only used it once and it left my hair feeling soft and smelling good. My thoughts so far

Also I thought maybe I can skip out on shampoo every other week and use the Coconut Co wash Cleansing Conditioner as a substitute. I just hope my hair reacts well to this product since Coconut Oil is in the top 5 of ingredients. As for the It's a 10 just thought on trying a new deep conditioner since the Algae Renew D/C from Camile Rose was sold out. (My next purchase once I'm done with the It's a 10)

Speak to you soon :)


  1. I've heard nothing but good things about the Camille Rose line of products. I hope that it works for you and I can't wait to read your review!

    1. I plan to write a review towards the end of this month. So far it has been good with my hair as a moisturizer

  2. Your hair looks really great in this picture! Not sure what you have left to cut off, but it cannot be much:) I definitely understand you on the health over length thing. Two months ago I cut my hair from a little past APL to a NL bob which I love! I definitely appreciate my fully healthy head of hair over my ragedy ends.

    1. Thank You & I wanted to cut it shorter but got a bit nervous cause I felt like I wouldn't know how to style short hair.. And the bob looks really good on you & I love the side bang

  3. Beautiful! Your hair looks so full and healthy!

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…

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. 

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…
