Last Wash 2011 & Happy New Year


I'm so happy that I started this hair journey 9 months ago and that you all decided to stay with me thus far!
This is just a general thank you to you all for subscribing to my blog and reading it. Thank you for the comments of encouraging words and advice.

So onto my wash day. Last night I washed my hair, not because it was necessary, but I just didn't like how it felt. I had used this hemp oil thing that contained mineral oil and I'm not sure if it was mind over matter or what but I just hated how it felt.

So I washed my hair with diluted shampoo and used some Aphogee Two Minute Reconstructer...again. I did say my hair takes protein very well. Then I used a moisturizing conditioner.

I had a comment on my blog recently about mixing honey with ann oil, so I mixed the honey with grapeseed oil, olive oil and coconut oil. I also added some ORS Olive Oil Replenishing Conditioner to make it pasty. The mixture had been sitting there for about 3 days because I was a little lazy, but that seemed to bond the ingredients well. I just stirred it a little and it became a smooth mixture with no honey stickiness.

I left that on overnight and didn't rinse till late afternoon (out of pure laziness of course lol).

After that, I sprayed some Aphogee Keratin & Green Tea Reconstructerizer. I always wonder if these people who make these products have some affinity for making up their own words, or if they simply don't like using real words.

I then applied some leave-in conditioner and did a braid-out.

Now I'm sitting here with my braids in hoping that they will be completely dried in time for church later.  I plan to do my regular cute little braid-out updo.

After church I will be spending the first few hours of the year with the bf and a few friends. I'm not really feeling the party thing....

So I hope all of you have an awesome night/morning and I wish you all the best for the year to come!!
