Nov 24 2010...I Had Long Hair And I Did Not Care

Soooo....I have been MIA for a while. Well, I got some weave!!!

I salsa dance so I just really wanted some hair to swing around on the dance floor. Also, it looked good with my Halloween costume.

But, the weave is out! While I do miss swinging my hair around the dance floor, I miss my natural curls even more!!! By the way, the weave was AWESOME!!! My hair grew at least an inch and is much thicker now.

So here are some new pics.

Two strand twist after I took out the weave:

This is when I first took out the weave. I was soo happy! I did not use any product on it at this point. I just undid the twists. My hair was very dry.

Next this is a pic of me and my friend Tara at the mall. I braided the hair to stretch it out then picked out the braids. We were doing some black Friday browsing. Then I usually stand in the shower for a few moments to hair it soak up some moisture to get it into a rounded shape.

Next this is me at work! As you can see I really love the gold headband...got it from Target for $7.99!

Lastly, this is me at work today. Last night I co-washed my hair w/ Plamer's Olive Oil Conditioner. Then I used Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie and two strand twisted my hair while wet. It made my hair super soft this morning. I then finger combed my hair in the morning. And I put on the gold headband of course!

Here is a pic of the stuff I used....I really do love it! It has only like 4 chem ingredients....the first 5 ingredients are all natural things like shea butter, coconut oil, mango butter, and some more great stuff.
