Summer Hair Routine
It’s been a while since I’ve had the time to post, but I wanted to write one about how I’m taking care of my hair this summer.
I wanted to be very low maintenance this summer because I wanted to be able to enjoy life and not have to worry about my hair. I promised my boyfriend that I would not wear any fake hair this summer (I regret it), so I’ve been twisting my hair and rocking the twists in a bun. I do this for a week or two and if I have to go somewhere that requires me to look more than decent, I’ll take the twists out and rock a twist-out. I wash my hair every 2-3 weeks and honestly I’ve been enjoying the fact that my hair is long enough to put in a twisted bun. It’s the easiest protective style and take me less than an hour to do.
When I wash my hair, I use my shampoo or co-wash (which you can find in my product list link). I deep condition with greek yogurt and honey every 2 washes and then I use my leave in and olive oil. During the week, I just tie my hair at night and sometimes spray it with water. I’ve found out that my hair is very good at maintaining moisture in the twists and I don’t have to do much. This has been a great summer for me (hair wise.

That one time I decided to wash my hair before detangling it. It wasn’t bad at all. I wet it, put in a huge amount of Aussie’s 3 minute deep conditioner, then finger detangled and did chunky twists in the shower before shampooing.
So this is what my wet untangled hair looks like.
Long Overdue update/Hair challenge winners
Hi guys! I have basically neglected this blog for the longest because life has gotten in the way. I was still doing my protective styles and still trying my best to take care of my hair. Although I do have a protective style in right now, I have the results from the 6 months challenge.
So, as you can tell, I’ve retained length and I feel like I accomplished my goals. Also, when I stretch out the back, it’s armpit length!!! I never thought I’d see the day! (both from the front and the back) The front goes from above my chin to all the way under it! I guess the sides is the only part that didn’t grow as much.
As for the challenge winners, I’m gonna go with Daphnie (Olive-Dee) on here, and Pandora (she’s not on Tumblr and did it through IG). They’re the only two who actually stuck with it all the way through so they’ll both be getting one of my favorite hair products.
I want to do another challenge, but I haven’t thought out the details yet. I just know that I want big beautiful hair for the summer.
Q:my moms doing crochet twists in my hair and so far we've gotten two rows done and it's alottt of twist. like I can barely put it in a pony tail. are we doing them too close together or ..?
That’s possible. try to space it out on each row and then on the row above that, do it in the spaces if that makes sense. Also, if you’re doing it short realize that it won’t really be able to go into a pony either way. I only do my top rows close together because there will be enough hair to block the rest.
