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!!
