Aloe Vera Pre-Poo

Hey!! Well I'm thinking about buying some Aloe Vera leaves and taking the insides and blending it with Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, or Jojoba Oil. Not sure when I'll be able to buy it because i don't have a car and I'm living in a completely different city from my family because I left for school. If Walmart has Aloe Vera then I'm definitely getting it along with Olive Oil because i know Walmart has it, but if I find Coconut Oil then I'll get that instead. Most likely Jojoba Oil wont be sold at Walmart but if it is then that's my first choice!!!!

Hopefully my mixture will work and not give me any problems. I doubt it would because its all natural and both ingredients are good for hair. I plan on using it as an overnight pre-poo then wash may hair the next morning. Can't wait till i can buy it.

If anyone has already done this, leave a comment telling what type of results you got. Even though everyone doesn't have the same type of hair, your comment will still be helpful.

Why Wear Scarves?

Why should we wear scarves? Well what a terrific question!!!! Well here are a few points of why scarves are an important hair accessory that every girl should have.
  • Protecting Hair- I personally feel like the less you do with your hair the better. Wearing scarves throughout the week will stop you from doing any more heat damage to your hair. Your also not combing and brushing your hair as often, which will be a huge plus for those with thinned edges.
  • Solves a Bad Hair Day problem- you wake up in the morning. Take off your silk wrap and start doing your hair. To your surprise she decides to say "NO! I'm not listening to you!" Instead of spending hours trying to tame your hair just grab your cute head scarf and tie it up and put her in a time out.
  • Hide Greasy Hair- Taking care of your hair can get a bit messy when your trying out new products and techniques. You're never really sure about how your hair will react with a new product so a scarf is a perfect Plan B.
  • Stylish and Versatile- You can finish up almost any outfit with a great scarf. You don't always have to wear it around your head. But it around your neck or make a cute belt with it. There is no limit of what you can think of to do with a scarf ;D

First Hair Journal Entry

Hey people, this should have actually been my first blog post but I was so excited about writing a blog on President-Elect Barack Obama; it still feels so good saying that, that I had to hold off on this entry.

OK. Well This is the first entry in my Hair Journal. I'm starting in November 2008 to make my hair healthier and longer, and I'm so EXCITED!!!!!

On Saturday, November 1st I went to my Godmother's house and she relaxed my hair, cut it, roller set it, and then wrapped. Yes, yes, i know. So much being done to my hair but it was all worth it. Before the cut my hair was below Shoulder Length and now its above maybe at shoulder length (can't really tell since my ends are still curled). I heard that sitting under a hair dryer when its roller set is way much better than straightening your hair with a straightener and that does make sense. The straightener can get really hot and sometimes it SMELLS like your hair is burning, and most likely it is :( Plus I have way much more volume with the roller set than I'd ever have with a straightener!!! I love it!!! My aunt was like it would be much better to get the roller set than straightening because it would look awesome and she was right. I'm so loving my cut!!!!

My hair is really thick and its type is probably a 4b

Now it's PICTURE TIME!!!

 This is my before shot. I just took out my tracks and my hair was extremely WILD!!!

 This is my hair after my Godmother did all that work. Doesn't it look so nice. I'm in love with it!!!!

 This is my hair the next day after wrapping it the night before. The curls fell so it looks a lot longer now.
