I Self-Dusted and a Haul!

Here are the items I picked up at random places this week. Top (left-to-right): 15 shower caps (deep conditioning & pre-pooing), organization baskets and bins.  I've been working on cleaning up all of my hair, beauty, and nail products and after my last sweep through, I realized I needed some smaller bins for different items.  I picked these up at my local dollar store, called Deals, and I think these will be the final items I need.  When I … [Read more...]

Wash Day: Silk Wrapped Hair

I've only done two silk wraps (aka doobies) since the start of the Rollersetting Challenge if memory serves me correctly.  One of the major reasons is because I don't want to obsess about how close or far from BSL I am and the other is because after my trim-turned-cut, I didn't want to be reminded of the lost length.  But, since I've been doing curly looks for about two months I wanted to go straight again this week.  Especially since I'm … [Read more...]

From Curls to the Perfect Waves

Last weekend, after I relaxed my hair I did a very fast flexirod set using only 20 of the 1" rods.  I loved the resulting curls, but realized that to preserve them, I would need to roll my hair each night.  I did this on Saturday evening and had fabulous hair for church, but then I just couldn't bring myself to sleep another night in those rollers.  So I did 6 bantu knots hoping to achieve a similar look with my comfortable sleep.  Here is … [Read more...]
