Diva: A January Update

A little bit about what my hair is doing: it’s actually gotten thicker since I started using Tropic Isle Living’s JBCO.  I put it in EVERYTHING (shampoo, conditioner, leave in, and moisturizer ). Even my rough patch has a little length on it.  I’m still struggling with making DC a part of my routine. I…

The only thing I changed was the moisturizong conditioner.Instead of TRESemme Moisture Rich Conditioner,I used ORS Hair Masque.I really like the hair masque but I had left it alone for awhile to try other conditioners.I’ve decided to keep it as a…

For week three, I pre poo’d with Tresemme Moisture Rich Conditioner for half an hour.I used my Shea Moisture:Moisture Retention shampoo.As always,I only shampooed once so as to use less product because my hair wasn’t super dirty or anything.

Anti Breakage Challenge (Part Two): Week 2

Week 2 was pretty much a breeze. I was very excited about trying my Shea Moisture products and I found a way to implement them into the challenge. For this week,I was instructed to pre poo with ORS Hair Mayonnaise for 30 minutes. That was easy peasy lemon squeezy(I overheard Bubba say it…don’t ask). As…

Starting From the Bottom

Last week while washing my hair, I got the surprise of my life. My hair was breaking like nobody’s business! It was coming out practically in chunks. I hadn’t experienced breakage like that since I first started transitioning. My hair was on the shower walls,curtains,and all over the tub. It was a real wake up…

Bubba’s Hair-y Situation

When Bubba was born, she had thick,jet black,and bone straight hair. I was surprised at the texture because it was silky soft,unlike my more wool textured hair. I was so glad that she wouldn’t have to deal with relaxers,blow dryers,or flar irons. I enjoyed endless hours of washing and combing her “perfect” hair into mohawks…

High Bun Mohawk & An Update

This past Mother’s Day weekend I finally went for the high bun mohawk I’ve talked about doing before. I felt like it was time to do something different,especially after finally ‘dusting’ my hair. In preparation for my ┬ánew ‘do, i prepoo’d my hair with extra virgin coconut oil for about an hour before washing with…

How I Take Care of my Cooky Curly Hair

My Hair Regimen Daily: So far I don’t do anything daily with my hair. I usually just throw it in a ponytail and then cover it with my silk scarf at night and if I’m too lazy for that, I have a satin pillowcase as backup. Weekly: Every week I wash my hair with one…
