New In

I'm literally about to run out the door to head to the airport (my sister is bringing forth a little bundle of joy in FL yayyyyy), and I know I will be doing some hair shopping there. So before I forget, here are the last few things I bought here in Ja.:

VO5 moisture milk conditioner, NTM Daily Deep Conditioner, Ginseng Wonder 8 Oil

I've Been a Bad Girl

Recently it hit me that my current hair woes (dry hair), may be due, not to the change in climate or to the new (and not-so-new) products I have been experimenting with, but to my actions, or lack thereof. You see, ever since I came back home to Jamaica, I have been just plain lazy keeping it simple with my hair.

Haul Update

I was about to do another "New In" post, when I realized that I haven't yet come back to speak on my experiences with the products from my last haul. So this post will serve to do just that. Let's jump in->

Results of Last Wash Day

So last wash day I told you I had experimented with smaller sectioned flexi rods.
I left them in for about 7 hours and since I no longer have a hooded dryer (threw it out when I was leaving Japan), I had to make use of my hand-held dryer (which was quite tedious).

These are the results:

Fitness Friday Frolic - That Juice-y Juice-y

I am linking up with the lovely KLP, Britt and Ebony to do yet another fitness Friday post 'cuz I been juicing, I been juicing (Yonce's voice lol).

Girrrrll let me tell you.... I had been saying to my mom how much I was needing a juicer since I got to Ja. Then last week when I had that lovely beetroot, carrot and cucumber juice after yoga, I was straight fiending. Then one day I looked under the cupboard and what did a find? A motherfreaking juicer!!! I was like why oh why didn't you tell me?! She claims she forgot it was there. That was earlier this week and mayynn! I been juicing ever since.

Still Flexing - Wash Day {5/2}

Last wash day I started off by:

  • detangling and pre-pooing with coconut oil. Of course I braided in my 4 sections as per usual.
  • Next I added my queen helene DC mix from this post sans glycerin
  • then I hopped in the shower to rinse. I skipped the shampoo this week and went straight for my Aussie moist instant conditioner.
  • after I rinsed, I t-shirt dried for 15 mins and then it was on to install some flexi rods.

HOTD - Sunday Funday (kinda lol)

Hey luvs!
So the braidout has totally become my default style. Sometimes it's super defined, other times its a big ball of frizz. Either way, I love it. It goes everywhere with me from lunch dates, to errands, to the gym and yesterday, to church. Check out the pics below for the skinny:

Fitness Friday Frolic - Switching Things Up

I'm linking up once again with the lovely ladies of SavingourStrands, One&20, and Longing4Length, to share my current fitness routine.

Curly vs. Straight - Not Another Relaxed Debate!

We've seen it time and time again, the natural versus relaxed hair debate. I love both forms. As most people may know, I am chemically treated but love natural hair and intend to go (back) natural at some point. This post is actually geared towards my texlaxed girls in an effort to share my experience, and to hear about yours, regarding people's reaction to how you style your hair.
