Drought up Top - hAloe Hydration!

My hair is dry again!

I really hate dry hair, so I've been trying out a few things to quench my hair. I don't want to just buy every moisturizer out there, so I've been experimenting and DIYing to find a suitable weapon to combat the dryness. 

First up: hAloe Hydration

Reactions to my HHJ Progress

Having been on my journey for 2 years, I have achieved lengths that I hadn't before. I started the journey while living in Japan, and while my family members and few close friends knew what I was up to, most others wouldn't and didn't.

My Trimming Frenzy

A few days ago a friend of Belowthawaist asked if I was ready to claim waist length as I was pretty close. I'd say as at my last length check I was about an inch (maybe 2) away.

But right now, I am at least 3 or 4 inches off due to my recent trimming frenzy.

Starting Over?! - Hair Chat

Having changed weather an climatic conditions, my hair has not been behaving the way it used to. It is definitely more prone to frizzing. I tried a few hairstyles that, by the end of the day, end up in a big ball of frizz. I may need to look into anti-humidity and anti-frizz products.

One just does not leave their country of abode for travel and not pick up a few hair products, especially when you're on a hair journey. So this post is dedicated to the items I copped recently.

Relaxer Update Time - 2 Year HHJ Anniversary

I have been gone from the blogosphere for quite a while due to my move from Japan back to Jamaica. I think I am fairly settled now and can pick up where I left off, so I'll do just that. Thanks for bearing with me!

relaxer update 04/'14

So four days after relaxing, I rewashed and styled my hair.

I started off by prepooing/ deep conditioning with a mix of Aubrey's Honeysuckle rose, Queen Helene cholesterol cream, and my oil mix. This sat for about an hour. 

Then I shampooed with ORS creamy aloe and conditioned with HEHH and a bit of Tresseme moisture rich.

I T-shirt dried for 15 minutes, then applied my heat protectant - Nioxin Thermal Bliss and proceeded to blow-dry.

After that, I applied more heat protectant in the form of ORS Thermal protect and shine and the flat-ironing got underway.
