Color Treated

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I do not remember if I had mentioned it before but it has been in the back of my mind that 2017 would be a year of trying new things with my natural hair. This first thing I did to my hair that I have never done before was to professionally flat iron and cut my hair. Guess what I did next? I colored my hair. I can say 2017 has been one risky year so far.

Flat Ironed and Cut ๐Ÿ’‡๐Ÿฝ

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I currently got my natural hair straightened, that was February 18, 2017 because my weeks are quite hectic to be dealing with a thick head of hair each morning. Be mindful I am one whom is very much afraid of heat and have always tried to dodge ever doing that to my hair. You may wonder why I changed my mind and went ahead to do so. It is because I heard of the first blow-dry bar in Jamaica. Yes, Blow by Blow. It is owned by the Chynn sisters – Tami, Tessanne and Terrie. I always stated that if I was going to get my hair flat ironed, I would rather a professional do that. Blow by Blow came just in time.

Twist N’ Curl ft. Shea Moisture

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I know you guys are used to me doing the Twist n’ Curl method (here and here) where I twist the hair then roll 3-5 twists onto a perm rod but this time I did the other method. I realize that the initial method I usually use takes a longer time to dry.

In addition to that, I used the wonderful Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Enhancing Smoothie and Curling Gel Soufflรจ to achieve this style.

Finger Coils

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

I’ve had many failed attempts at finger coiling my hair, for what reason? I don’t know. But I must say I’ve done 90% of my hair in finger coils and they came out perfectly. The front of my hair just doesn’t seem to keep the coils and I will not fight it anymore but keep what it gives me.

Beautiful Disaster

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

Guess what?! My lovely soft twists turned into a big frizzy head of twists – I hope my camera does justice of showing you this frizz ball ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿฝ. Here is how it happened: so my lovely best friend suggested we hang out at the Seawind Beach Club Thursday, May 12, 2016. I agreed but my hair was already washed and those lovely twists were already installed. I even wore a cap to protect my hair but she threatened to wet me up so I took the cap off because I didn’t want to get it wet. My hair was going so well dry while I’m enjoying myself in the water then she splashed me and my hair got wet, I couldn’t do anything else than to enjoy myself some more in the beach after which we head to the pool where we had our favorite drink – Daiquiri ๐Ÿธ.

Enough about my beautiful disaster, let’s get into how I managed to have my hair recuperate.

Undefined Fro

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿฝ

Lastย Wednesday I wore my hair in undefined style and I love it. I am a girl who loves a defined look, so falling in love with an undefined style means I am growing to love my hair in whatever state it’s in. I used to think persons would look at me like I’m a crazy girl with all my hair out like that but I just didn’t care that day. I had so many eyes staring at my hair but it just didn’t matter. I felt free, my hair dancing in the wind. ๐Ÿ™‚

My wash day was the next day – Thursday and I just didn’t want to do much with my hair, so I placed some flat twists in my hair about 10 or less and the next day I pulled them out to achieve this: ๐Ÿ’

I’ve Noticed Softer Hair

Hey Queens! ๐Ÿ‘‹

I am one to always wear my hair in mini twists. Here in Jamaica, we call them rope twists. Yesterday, I installed another head of rope twists and I noticed that my hair was as soft as ever than before. I was in awe.

I washed my hair on Thursday -the whole works of shampoo, deep condition, condition, apply a leave-in and then applied my black castor oil infused with argan oil mixed with coconut oil. This is the process I always used when washing my hair but I tweaked it a little. I wasn’t home by the way when I washed my hair. I was staying at my cousin’s house. Now, at his house he has a water heater.
