Just thought I’d add some hair inspiration. I love finding hair styles! It keeps my goal in mind. I try to find hairstyles that I feel are reasonable for me to attain within the next year or so, this way I don’t find myself trying to achieve the un-achievable. What I mean by that is I don’t want to encourage myself to have hair down to the middle of my back with a 3a curl pattern when I know that is not possible.
I like this style. I believe this is my curl pattern as well. Of course I won’t know for sure until I have BC’d
On another note:
I went to Jungle Jims (the best place to go all things natural and grocery PERIOD), GNC and an African Store I found to buy some products. I got Shea Butter (finally) and Coconut Oil from the African store for 3.00 total! That was a great buy because Coconut Oil alone is noramlly 10-13 bucks!
At GNC I purchased Whole Leaf Aloe Vera Juice and Jojoba oil.
Jungle Jims: Castor Oil, Vegetable Glycerin, Avocado, Giovanni leave-in conditioner
I ended up making the leave in conditioner from Kimmaytube (see her link on my blog roll). She focuses on the pH of your hair and how it promotes hair growth. The girl is pretty dag on informative. The conditioner was pretty good too. I used the Giovanni leave-in instead of the Knot Today.
I styled my hair in a twist-out and when I took my hair out I used the shea butter. It made my hair very soft and shiny Where I saw frizz I put a little bit of coconut oil on my fingers and twisted my fingers around my curls to eliminated the frizz.
My hair is very dry in the front, so I find myself paying extra attention to my front sides. I sprayed it down with a water/vegetable glycerin mix then used a silk scarf as a headband to protect the edges and keep them moisturized.
I have to say I ❤ my hair and its fullness. I already see a difference and it has grown almost 2 inches since I have started. I know this is pretty rapid growth, but my hair is probably happy that I’m paying so much attention to it.
I will post my hair regimen in the next day or so. Til then stay happy to be nappy LOL!
