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...

Win the No-Frizz Battle with Ten Tips and Free Products
Every Day of May from NaturallyCurly.com
AUSTIN, TX – The weather is changing and frizz season is creeping up on us. Whether you wear your hair curly or straight, frizz control is always a priority!
In its quest to help curly girls find solutions, NaturallyCurly is launching 31 Days to Fight Frizz during the month of May—prime frizz weather. Each day, readers can enter to win products from some of the top frizz-fighting brands, including Ouidad, Ojon, John Frieda, Curly Hair Solutions, Carol’s Daughter and CURLS. One grand-prize winner will also receive a $1,000 gift card.
“April showers may bring May flowers, but they also bring frizzy hair!” says Michelle Breyer, president and co-founder of NaturallyCurly.com. “Frizz is the curly girl’s arch nemesis, and here at NaturallyCurly.com we want to keep curlies looking good.”
Frizz control starts with how you care for your curls. Frizzy hair doesn’t discriminate, so NaturallyCurly.com has complied a list of ten hair healthy tips for sensational, no-frizz summer curls.
1. Get a good haircut to reduce split ends and breakage, a major cause of frizz.
2. Cleanse your hair every 2 to 3 days to keep some natural oils on your scalp to reduce frizz.
3. Never skip conditioner, and deep condition at least once a week.
4. Always detangle your hair with a wide-toothed comb when it’s wet and slick with conditioner.
5. Rinse with cold water because cold water helps smooth down the cuticle, diminishing frizz and fluffy flyaway tendencies.
6. Avoid terrycloth towels. Use microfiber instead because it does not disturb the cuticle— instead it smoothes the cuticle down, reducing frizz.
7. Choose a styling product best suited for your hair type because each hair type responds differently to weather conditions.
8. Air-dry or use a diffuser for the least amount of disruption and frizz.
9. Carry a pomade or frizz-fighting serum at all times to control frizz and repel humidity.
10. Lastly, NEVER use a brush and try not to touch your curls! Brushing while wet will break your hair, and brushing while dry is a curly hair sin.
