So This Is Me...

So, I mentioned that I took out those afro twists after wearing them for 3 months.  I loved that style, but in truth, I probably wore it a little too long because the texture was so similar to my own hair that when I began to take it out it was difficult and very time consuming.  Very time consuming.  My ends were not okay in my book so I grabbed the scissors and snipped, snipped, snipped...without using a mirror.  My friend who was riding in the car beside me was livid.  (I wasn't driving, y'all.  I was also a passenger - with scissors.)

After washing and a deep conditioning treatment, I decided to use a curl pudding product that has been the rave for so long.  I waited months to finally try it out only to discover that it flakes!!!  So for me, I'm going back to square one to find the right combination of products.  After I wash my hair this week, I think I'll try another twist out using this leave-in protein mix conditioner and that whipped shea butter I made.  Keep it simple, right?

Ok, so this is me at a pottery show from last week.  (Stay tuned because I will have pottery show pics soon!!!)  The potter used my camera to take a picture of me.  This is me:

I was inspired by SoFull Sista's recent post on having a mid-year length check, that I think I'll do the same.  I should have done that before all the snipping, but it'll grow back.  Plus you'll be surprised when I post just how much of my 4b/4c hair is still there. 

Until then,
