Bangs for fall.

I had a coupon so why not? Non permanent!
I chose nutmeg and I like!

It gave me one color.. not multiple shades.

The conditioner smells great!
My hair was so soft and shiny by morning

Looking through old files

It makes me cringe LOL

Can't say I miss it.

I really like the bangs here.

I can't decide whether or not it would be a good idea though.

I really want a wig. Decent quality for cheap.

On my way to my 3rd month.

I did manage to squeeze 2 hot oil treatments in last month :]

Most of my layers grew out. I am still kind of amazed by my hair growth. It's growing out too fast. I barely had a month to enjoy the chinlengthness.

I never did notice how fast it grew because it was ALWAYS damaged in some way and most of my length consisted of dreads/curls/split ends. I wanted longer hair so I never got the trims since I'll lose inches.

I didn't think trims were that important until I started losing my length xP

I'll assume I'll still be in that awkward growing out stage for at least 3 more months. :|
So will try different ways to style. I am STILL on the hunt for new things.

^I only pin curled my bangs slightly.

I haven't had bangs chin length in over 5 years.. I'm close!

But this time.. healthy.

I like to track my growth. Usually I feel like my hair *never grows*

Pin Curls.

The outcome was this:

Tried again:

Tried smaller chunks and tighter:

Ran my fingers through it a bit--

My hair apparently grew 2 more inches.

2 weeks ago.


Thinking about making a fringe to wear instead of cutting. I really don't want bangs in the way during summer. I always regret that.

Pin curls tonight. Outcome tomorrow?!

I tried to wait at least a week before using a shampoo. I hate washing my hair for the first time after dyeing. It seems to strip out so much color

it has been growing-- super fast. I LOVE THIS. I never thought it would be touching my shoulders so quickly.

i adore short hair, i think it's sexy.

Not so much on me. Too much damage has been made and I'm only thinking about WHEN I'll have my desired length. I'll like to keep that mindset. But the first time I ran my fingers through my hair.. I met sleek. I was happy since I was usually cut off by massive knots

pin curls tonight. this is my first. i am scared of the outcome.
i had to redo some and i do like it so far..

hmm. yeah, no poofball please!

I had to dig up bobbies and clips. Used ALL of 'em. So I'm buying a pack soon.

Shampooed! XD I love that conditioner from the dye boxes D':

Sooo soft and shiny now.

Left the treatment in til around noon.

I read about some people putting aloe vera into their hair.. since it's "light" ?
scrunch and pump anyone??

I'm keeping notes :]

Baking Soda Cleanse
Remove product build up with a mixture of
**3 tablespoons of curly friendly conditioner & 1 tablespoon baking soda.
Baking soda is alkaline (raise cuticle/open hair shaft)
**Follow with an apple cider vinegar rinse (acidic will close half shaft)

restores moisturize.
1/2 cup of honey (microwave this to warm/ it can lighten hair if you don't)
1 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil

Olive Oil Spray
like Pam (limited use or well, oily hair)
For shine & frizz control.

Day 1: Co-wash & Home-made hot oil treatment

Today I am starting co-washing.
I used White Rain (no sulfates, -cones or protein)

Used a t-shirt to wrap my hair up in for 20 mins. Nice little waves! :D

I've done no shampoo for weeks before:

  • It's easy to style.
  • It gets oily (not greasy)
  • Thus, no more thirsty hair
  • No more dry, itchy scalp
  • No more frizz

Of course I'm going to look into a light shampoo for CGs.

Tonight, I am going to bed with a homemade hot oil treatment. I poured some extra virgin olive oil into a bowl and mixed some of my conditioner in it. Put it in the microwave for 10 seconds to be safe. I don't want burn my fingers lol I am putting it on dry hair. Am i doing it right? LOL

Well, I've put my hair up into 2 sections. Tiny hairtie for the back and a scrunchie for the rest & top. I wrapped and pinned a grocery bag on my head to keep clean!

I don't expect my hair to get curls because my hair type falls into type 2 at a certain length. It's more wavy than anything but it's too short right now to expect much. I'll rather get into the habit now :)

No more heat for me!

I've also heard about Nature's Gate,VO5, Jessicurl & Suave Naturals.
I am only familiar with VO5.

My hair first chopped (month ago)


baby waves XD
