My New Norm...

Hi all! I have been just jumping through hoops lately doing things for an even my husband and I put together last weekend. Now it is finally over and done with and I sighed a good sigh as I sunk into this computer chair to compose my post.

Due to the fact that I have been running non-stop since basically the end of February sadly my hair has taken a hit. I am back on the wagon and treating myself and my daughters hair more kindly.

I am due for a serious trim and so is Little Miss. I see her ends are thirsty so today I am going to use some Avo Whip Conditioner and that always helps to revive her hair and her ends. I also am going to throw some Africa's Best Herbal Oils our way and watch our manes glisten in the sun.

This head of mine is due for a blowout. Now my definition of blowout might be different than your term. Blowout to me is when I take a pic and go to it up there and literally pic all of my fro out to a full on mane and then do the pat down. I love it, it shows me my growth instantly.

Here's a current non-blowout picture. Just my wash and go from this morning.

I'll post a blowout pic later this afternoon after I pick up Little Man from school. Then I'll pic it out and we'll both be surprised by the results I'm sure! For better or worse.... ;o)

My best,

2 Months and Counting...

So I'm 2 months post Big Chop and really liking how my hair has responded to its natural state. It is growing in nicely and when I really show it some love it really flourishes. I have been using my Bees Knee's Naturals Avo Whip Conditioner and it has really given my hair a whole different outlook :o) It is now more moisturized and softer to the touch and easier to comb and manage. All the way around it is nothing but supportive to the overall health of my hair.

I love that I am limiting more and more chemicals going into my system these days and my body is responding in kind by feeling better, lighter, and more "streamlined" shall I say?

One of these days soon I'm going to try a twist out again. Perhaps next weekend. I will have alot going on but still I will have some free time here and there to kill so why not play with my locks? :oP

2 Month Update Pic!

Bonus question of the moment: Where can I find cute headbands from independent sellers? I love to support fellow artisans of course, so let me know if you either sell them or have a regular that you always go to. Thanks ladies and gents!

My best,

Song of the Moment: Queen "We Are the Champions". Completely and utterly inspiring. Loves it!
