Today's do....

Tuesday, May 4, 2010

Hey all!

I had my hair colored on Friday and ever since then, I've been itching to wear my hair out. If you don't know I've been on a protective hair & hide your hair challenge until my nappiversary on June 26. For the most part I haven't worn my hair out in public much since the end of February.

I decided to wear my hair out today. Last night, I DC'd for an hour (baggy, no heat) with
  • Condish (don't ask me what kind I forgot LOL)
  • Olive Oil
  • Silk Amino Acids (SAA)
  • Wheat Germ Oil
  • Jojoba Oil
  • Baking Soda
Man my hair was super soft afterwards! So I co-washed with ORS Replenishing Conditioner and Kera Care Condish for Color Treated Hair. I let it air dry about 50 percent. Sprayed and moisturized with my special "juicing" agent (um, S-curl activator LOL) and did fat two-strand twists all over. Here are the results....

It's in a relatively low puff (trying to make sure no hair brushes clothing). Made the headband myself...

Here's an upclose of my texture...I finally have some! LOL

I think I will go with this style for the remainder of the week. It feels good to have my hair out for a change.

What are your hair plans for the summer?

Your hair looks nice. My summet hair plans just involve going back to my old stylist, sticking to my vits and water, minimal heat, and growing my 'do out.

To try to find a color for my hair (I'm allergic to dye). Rinses are doing the trick (I have dark brown/black hair)

Also need to find a protective style for the summer since I am now 7 months in transition and do not plan on cutting dead hair until my 1 year anniversary in October!

@ Kim Thanks! That sounds like a great regimen...good luck!

@ Moni Can you do Aveda color? Or have you tried henna? I know some people on the forum I'm apart of rave about it. I have no clue about the ingredients, but perhaps you should research it. My fave protective style was rollersets. I sorta miss them LOL

Very pretty! Did you get the color from henna? I'm new to your blog so I haven't read through the archives of your hair journey.
