I am just trying to understand my hair, to learn what works and what doesn't, to experiment, make mistakes, and to embrace my hair in it's entirety..... because Roots Don't Lie

The Week in Hair pictures

Hey Guys,

Somehow I found a way to wear my hair in 5 different ways this week. I blame the temperamental weather in Houston!! But it was great wearing my hair out and seeing how much it could change in a short time period. It was also my 3 years since my BC on April 17, 2013, I plan on doing a length check video but otherwise all is well in hair world. I have been trying out a couple of products so stay tuned for product reviews.

I started off leaving for work on Monday with this gorgeous twist out:

2 hours later into my work day.. and it was this puffed up swollen thing.. Thank you Houston.

Before and After
So when I got home that night.. I moisturized my hair, smoothed down with some hair gel and put in two low braids, and wore till Friday night.

Friday night.. I took down the braids, fluffed the heck out of my hair..dealt with some flaking but overall made it work..

Make-up game on point.. yeah?

All the hair gel I used on Monday night, as well as the products I was trying out over the weekend left my hair feeling yucky and nasty so Saturday I did a quick co-wash, and  set my hair in twists.. alas my hair was not dry in time to make it to a Houston Roller Derby game with my friend.. so I threw on a wig.. and took off for the afternoon.

Saturday night twist-out for a friends party was a hit!!! I mean awesome twist-out and hands down the best first day twist-out I have had in ages.. I definitely have to try this again

Alas Saturday nights activities did not allow time to re twist so I pulled my hair up in a puff and headed to a craw-fish boil on Sunday with my co-workers.

I had a great week both in fun activities, and hair week...
Look out for my 3- year length check video, and stay tuned for the April Product Trial Group review.
