Sorry for the long span without any updates. As soon as the warm weather arrived it seemed like everybody and their mother wanted me to do their hair - with time consuming extension styles at that :o( But I think I have gotten all heads done and will be updating soon :o)
In the meanwhile, I am still loving my new TWA - it has grown out a little on the top, but I noticed that I cut the back uneven so again picked up the scissors in attempt to shape it up. It's still not as even as I would like it but I'm satisfied for now. I'm thinking that as it grows out a bit more I may have to go to a stylist to get it shaped professionally.
I have cut down on styling it every week - i.e.- twists/coils one week and twist-outs the next - especially since I've been doing other people's hair I haven't had the time - so I've been wearing wash-n-gos. I've been experimenting with different products trying to figure out which ones my hair likes the best - and I haven't bought anything new either - just going through old stuff in my cabinets - so far I have had the best results with HairVeda's Whipped Gelly.
I am heavy-handed with products and so far it's one of the only 'curling' product that I've tried where I can pile it on and it wont be hard or crunchy later. I also like it because I can use it alone - without an oil or pomade and once it dries it leaves my hair super moisturized, soft and with a nice sheen. It also actually defines my curls.
I've also attempted to make my own flax seed gel and had pretty good results with that as well.
I have tons of pictures and curly product reviews in the works :o) I am also planning another giveaway as well so stay tuned.
Peace and Blessings...
