My Flat Twist Out Experiment Results!!!

Happy Monday to all who read this!!  I'm so blessed and thankful to say that my SECOND flat twist attempt was a great success for me, and if you want to see how I styled my hair then please refer to the previous post with the how to video below.

The three main products that I used to make this flat twist out a success were the Heritage Store The Palma Christi Castor Oil, spray bottle with water and my Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner.  I didn't use any of my Eco Styler Gel but being that my hair is still holding the style a few hours after taking my hair down,  I can see using the gel wasn't all that necessary.  My next goal is to teach myself how to do the flat twist on the back of my hair because that's still a little tricky for me.

Anyhoo I just wanted to write this very quickly to share my hair progress with you.  Oh!  And I've recently grown to LOVE using the Shea Moisture Raw Shea Butter Restorative Conditioner on my hair daily now because my hair is less dry that what it usually is now and I know that it's due to me applying the leave in daily.   I don't necessarily apply the leave in all over my hair EVERYDAY, but I'll take special care to look for my troubled spots (especially dry brittle areas of my hair towards the center of my head) and apply it there.

Well the daily chores of motherhood are calling so I must sign off here.  Have a blessed day!! .

Hair Of The Day:-)

 A lovely twist out that I did with castor oil and Shea Moisture Conditioner.
Well hello there and happy Saturday to you!  I just wanted to share these pictures with you because this was the very first time that I actually attempted to do a twist out with the Shea Moisture Restorative Conditioner and Castor Oil.  Now I'm not going to try to sit here and lie to you so let me be real honest here.  I, in no way shape or form, was expecting my hair to hold the style as well as it did mainly due to the fact that I decided NOT add gel into my hair regiment this week.  But despite the absence of the Eco Styling Gel my twist out looked great all throughout the day without me having to revive it in any way, so I think that it's safe to say that I will be styling my twist outs with Castor Oil and leave in conditioner more often.

Well I don't want to keep you too long but I did want to take the time to write something rather quickly just to give you an update on what I'm doing with my kinky curly hair:-)  Be blessed!

FroHawk FAIL and SUCCESS On My Naturally Kinky Hair!!!

My Hair For The Day: FroHawk FAIL/SUCCESS!!!

Good morning readers!  I'm excited to share my hair of the day with you because I really didn't think that this experiment of mine was going to come out well at all.  It all started out with me wanting to do a frohawk for the day but when that turned into a huge FAIL I decided to turn my disaster into something beautifully RIGHT.  I'll have the video of this hair adventure up on my blog soon enough so please stay tuned, and if you haven't subscribed to my youtube channel yet please be sure to do so!!

Be Blessed!!!

Rocking My Puff For The Very First Time!!

Hey there how are you doing today?  Well I just wanted to take a few seconds out of the day to share hairstyle that's new to me!  I never thought that I could make the puff work for me but I proved myself wrong once again and I couldn't be any happier with the results.  I used water, castor oil, two ouchless head bands, a comb and the curl enhancing smoothie:-)  CUTE!!!!

Be Blessed!!!

My Castor Oil Challenge update!!

This picture was taken the day before this blog post:-)

Well hello there!  I'm very blessed to announce that I am now in my 25th day of my two month Castor Oil Challenge, so if you haven't joined me yet it's still not too late.  This challenge will be ending November 27, 2013 which happens to be the day before Thanksgiving.  If I've learned anything about myself, when it comes to my hair, is that I'm becoming more and more comfortable with my hair being in an afro like state which is super fun for me.  I'm one that usually tries to stretch out my hair every chance that I can get to get more length but I'm starting to move away from that.  Well I don't want to make this too long but I just wanted to give you a quick update on what's going on with this hair of mine.  Be blessed!!

Castor Oil Challenge Update!!!

So I know that I'm way past my 8th day on my challenge but I didn't get the opportunity to post my pic but here it is!  I'm currently on my 19th day and I'm still happy with how my hair is doing now.  Ever since starting this challenge I've come to notice that my hair is feeling a lot stronger, and I'm experiencing less breakage than before, so I know that the castor oil is working it's wonders.  If you still want to join me on this challenge it's not too late because the challenge will not end until the end of November so get started!!

Yummy Tuesday!!


 My first attempt at making homemade peach cobbler.  The two things that I'm going to change the next time I make this is  that I plan on getting the canned peaches with the thick syrup and I'll be sure to put a healthy amount of butter on top of the crust before I put the cobbler in the oven.  I didn't follow a specific recipe for the peach filling but the link above will take you to the website that helped me out a lot with the crust.   Once I have my recipe down pact I'll think about sharing it on here:-)


The website above will take you to the recipe I used for these yummy homemade flour tortillas:-)  They were very easy to make and tasted great.

I'm feeling like pie:-)

Happy Monday people:-)  It has been a grand and trying weekend all rolled into one but I plan on starting this week out right.  I just recently taught myself how to make pie crust and succeeded in baking my very first pie with homemade flour pie crust:-)  You honestly have no clue as to how proud and accomplished I felt to have finished that pie because I haven't tried to do anything like it before.  Mainly because I was too scared but also because I didn't think that I had it in me to make my own pie crust, and don't get me started on the homemade tortillas I made!!  YUM!  Both recipes that I used were found on pinterest, but onto for what I have planned for tonight.

I plan on making peach cobbler for the very first time tonight so please wish me luck because I, once again, have no idea as to what I'm doing but I going to have faith in myself and KINDA follow the written directions. lol I tend to put my own little twist on almost every recipe I try out.  Pictures of my very first pie and tortillas will be up on here as soon as I can update my blog!

Be Blessed!!!
