Dec 2012 Hair Treatment

Today 12/19/12 I did my last deep condition treatment of this year. It's been an interesting year with my locs and I am happy to say that it's been a lot of fun.

I shampooed my locs with Creme of Nature Argan Oil Sulfate-free Moisture & Shine Shampoo

I've heard great things about this shampoo and I can honestly say...I enjoyed using this product. My locs were feeling very dry and brittle before I started and once I shampooed my locs, they started to feel a lot softer and moisturized. Which is what my locs needed. A serious rejuvenation process and I must feels good.

Then I decided to use one of my favorite conditioners:
Dr. Miracle's Tingling Intensive Deep Conditioning Treatment 
My locs were so dry that I felt the deserved to be treated deeply!! So I took two packs of the treatment and applied it to my locs from roots to tips. Tingling Intensive accurately describes the feeling your scalp feels!! An intense tingling that feels like it's working magic. 
Since I ran out of plastic shower caps, I grabbed 2 plastic shopping bags (work just as well) and wrapped them around my locs, then a bonnet to keep them in place, then my scarf. Giving my scalp heat without actually applying heat. 
Once I rinse the conditioner out, I'm debating on whether I should braid it up for a braid out or do some spiral curls...whatever I do decide on, it'll be part of my style for the New Year. Let's see what I come up with....stay tuned...

Hair regimen Oct 15, 2012

Hello everybody!!! Peace and Blessings!!!
Today I decided to do my hair and mix two of my favorite company's products: Earthbalisms and Buttafly Jonez :)
Earthbalisms  Buttafly Jonez

I shampooed my locs first with Earthbalisms Mint Mary Teapoo Bar to have my scalp feeling minty fresh:

Then I shampooed my locs with Buttafly Jonez Luxurious Hair and Body Wash (scent Ooh, She's Fine) the kitchen, I was boiling the Mint Mary Tea Rinse by Earthbalisms which I let cool then used  the rinse as directed...ran it through my locs about 3 times (from one bowl to the other). 
I had some left in the pot so I added it to my trusty spray bottle to use as a spritz for moisture...what I added to it was some of Buttafly Jonez Bath, Body & Hair Oil (scent Ooh, She's Fine I just love this scent!!). This mix I will utilize while I'm re twisting my new growth because by the time I get to the top of my locs are usually already dry. 

Once I start re twisting my locs, I will use Buttafly Jonez Hair and Body Butter which I absolutely love especially since my locs are dyed I need to keep them moisturized to prevent breakage and dryness. 

Since I'm only at the "just rinsed" stage..I will be posting pics of my final results of my re twist. 
If you're looking for companies that actually care about your hair and put LOVE in their products....I definitely recommend Buttafly Jonez. Co as well as Earthbalisms

Here is what my locs look like after my re twist and braided my locs for a braid out (I just love my locs wavy LOL) 

Feel free to comment and share with friends that may be looking for some good products to use :)

Oct 2012 Libra RedHead

For my 37th b'day this year I decided to dye my hair red again. I just love how the red looks against my skin tone :) The first time I dyed it red (a few blogs ago) I did the dummy move and jumped in the pool which gave me golden brown highlights and stripped all of my red smh. Now that the summer is officially over, I don't have to worry about chlorine waters LOL so here are my results this year's hair dying session. 
Lightened my locs with powdered bleach and volume 30 
Applied Adore colors: Paprika and Crimson red
These are my end results: 

Now that my locs are shoulder length, I can't wait to start experimenting with more styles and sharing them with everyone. (I'm a big kid when it comes to playing with my hair LOL this is the longest and healthiest my hair has ever been and I just love sharing my journey). 
Peace and Blessings!!

Earthbalisms Product Review

Before I interlocked my locs last week I shampooed my locs with theEarthbalisms Mint Mary Teapoo Bar

My scalp felt tingly and wonderful. I love how the soap easily dissolves and smells devine.
Mint Mary is especially great for clarifying the hair!
This low lather "teapoo" bar is designed to cleanse the hair without causing build up or dryness. Enhanced with natural cleansing herbs such as soap wort, soap nuts, and yucca root.
You will find the most natural ingredients, and yes, this is sls free! 

Afterwards I rinsed my locs with Earthbalisms Herbal Hair Rinse-Mint Mary I boiled the mix and let it cool. Then I decided to add the mix to a spray bottle to be able to spray my scalp whenever my scalp feels dry or itchy. 

Cool, clarifying, collected! Mint Mary Hair rinse is sure to please and chase away build up. Use after shampooing or a primary cleaner.
Mint Mary is made with the following:
Organic peppermint
Organic spearmint
Wildcrafted Horsetail
Organic Nettles 
Burdock root
Marshmallow Root 
♥ & Earth
*the rinse comes packaged in a compostable, bag made from plants!

Highly recommended and I will be ordering more soon. Thanks Earthbalisms!!!! Your products are awesome. 
Here are my before and after pics: 

Before my treatment:

Very dull and dry

After my Earthbalisms treatment:

Moisturized and feeling wonderful :)

July 2012 Retwist and Deep Conditioning Treatment

I shampooed my locs with Essations Tea Tree Solutions Dry & Itchy Scalp Shampoo
My locs love this shampoo and so does my scalp. 
Next I deep conditioned my locs with Dr. Miracle's "Feel It" Formula Tingling Intensive Deep Conditioning Treatment pack and let me tell does tingle!!!! it was a cooling sensation that felt so wonderful that I actually left in the conditioner overnight under a plastic cap and scarf.
My locs feel super soft and it's a treatment that can be used weekly. I only shampoo my hair about twice a month depending on how much I sweat and if I style my locs but I will be using this treatment pack the next time I shampoo my hair. 

This was the first time my fiance ever did my re-twist for me and he did a wonderful job! It feels good to be pampered once in a while :) 

Stay tuned!! I may try so new styles before this month is over or early August.

Peace and Blessings!!
