Wash and set 7/28/13

*Disclaimer...what may work for me, may not work for everyone. I just share my experience with my locs to document my journey. I hope you enjoy! Peace and Blessings*

Today I shampooed my locs with Renpure Originals Argan Oil Luxurious Shampoo. I'm only using this stuff until I get my Buttafly Jonez products because I enjoy her products a lot more. This shampoo tends to clean my locs really well but leaves them feeling hard.
After my shampoo, I applied Hollywood Beauty Tea Tree Cholesterol with Shea Butter and Aloe to soften my locs a bit. I left it in for about 30 mins then rinsed thoroughly. 

Once I rinsed out the Cholesterol, I then applied Carol's Daughter Hair milk pudding from roots to tip
As additional moisturizer I also greased my scalp with Mega Care Grape Seed Oil. The tube says it provides the hair and scalp with an abundance of rich minerals and so it does!! With an awesome scent :) 

Then I decided to curl my locs with pipe cleaners and do some braid twists in the front (since I don't like my hair to fall in my face...I braided it to my ears and curls the rest. Thanks to my mom for helping me curl the back)

Now I'm doing the one thing that I despise the most.....sitting under the dryer LOL 
Once I'm done with the dryer, I may decide to sleep with the pipe cleaners or take them out...we will see :) 
I'll take pics and post the finished results tomorrow. 

Thanks for stopping by my blog :) Feel free to comment and tell a friend!! 

Peace and Blessings!!!

Chestnut Henna Color

I love the way my color turned out. Didn't want to so anything drastic so I just did a chestnut to even out my color.

Henna hair color and deep conditioner for July 2013

 *Disclaimer* What may work for me, may not work for you but I like to tell people what I do to my hair because it may help someone in the future.

I decided to try the Colora Henna powder to dye my locs a chestnut color. I didn't want to do anything to drastic this summer, just wanted to even out my existing color a bit.

All natural Henna Powder in Chestnut
 Mixed Henna powder with water and stirred....
 Applied to my locs and sat under the dryer for about 30 mins then left it in for 30 more mins. 
 This is what my locs looked like once I rinsed out the Henna...not much of a difference to me yet but we'll see in the morning. 

After I shampooed the Henna out of my hair, I used Tea Tree Cholestrol as a deep conditioner and sat under the dryer for about 30 mins...If you've read my blogs before, you know that I am not a fan of the hair dryer but since it was late in the day I decided to utilize the dryer to achieve my results faster...

 I love Cholestrol in my leaves it so soft.

Once I rinsed the Cholestrol out of my locs...this is what they looked like wet. Since I refuse to sit under the dryer for a 3rd time tonight...I decided to towel and air dry my locs. I will post pics tomorrow once my hair is dry to see if I can see a difference in my color. I will however oil my scalp before I go to bed.....stay tuned for updates :) 

Peace and Blessings!!

April's Hair Treatment

*Disclaimer: What may work for me may not work for everyone. I'm just sharing my regimen to document my personal journey.

I decided to do my ACV treatment for the first time this year. Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV), Baking Soda, Lemon juice(half of a lemon), a touch of salt and water. Soaked my locs for about 20 mins running the mix through my hair repeatedly.
I squeezed the excess out of my hair then thoroughly rinsed my hair until the water ran clear.
Then I took some honey, lemon, my oil mixture, an egg yoke, and some mayonnaise and applied it to my locs as a deep conditioner. I then put my locs in a shower cap and wrapped a towel around my head to retain the heat so I didn't have to sit under a dryer.
I'm leaving the conditioner in for about 2 hrs then thoroughly rinsing my hair until the water runs clear. I'm going to shampoo my locs with the Earthbalisms Lavender Lemongrass Teapoo bar, apply my oil mixture to my locs then interlock the new growth with Shea butter.
Pics coming soon

Peace and Blessings!!

February loc treatment and style

Hello good people!!!

Here is my February treatment and style.

Shampooed my locs with Creme of Nature Argan Oil Moisture and Shine Shampoo
Conditioned with Cantu Shea Butter Leave In Conditioning Treatment 
Since I interlocked my new growth last month, there was no need for a re-twist so I used Shea Butter to braid my locs for a braid out. 
Here are my results as of today: 

I will be posting pics after I take the braids down and may post a few styles as well. 
Stay tuned....

Peace and Blessings!!!

Shea Butter January hair treatment

Happy New Year everyone!! 2013 

Disclaimer: What may work for me...may not work for everyone. This is just my personal journey of hair treatments. 

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

I love how soft my locs feels after shampooing. My locs always feel juicy (juicy is always good LOL)

I decided to try out the Cantu Shea Butter leave in conditioning repair cream this time and I'm happy to say that I love how it makes my locs feel. This is a product that will definitely be in my treatments this year.

I also found a tub of shea butter that wasn't just small globs of shea butter in them. They actually melted it down and filled the entire tub. I've always enjoyed using shea butter for my body as a lotion (due to dry skin during the winter) and now I know that I can use this for my locs as's going to be a wonderful year :) 

So since it's the first month of the year, I decided to interlock my new growth. LONGEST PROCESS EVER!!! If you don't have the patience....please do not try this on your own. Have a loctician interlock your new growth for you.

I mixed the shea butter leave in conditioner with the shea butter and interlocked my new growth. 

As you can tell from the top of the picture, I had a lot of new growth that needed some lovin' :) After a lot of patience and taking breaks to let my elbows get the feeling back in them...this is the final product...
So now I don't have to worry about maintaining my new growth for the next 6-8 weeks. I'm glad I decided to interlock, it may take a long time to do it but all in all it's so worth it. Once my scalp feels like being manipulated, I'll start posting pics of different styles that I decide to try. New year, new styles! Stay tuned!!

Peace and Blessings!!
