OMG... THE HEAT IS ON!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's another ridiculously humid day in Philly!!!!! Sorry I've been gone for a minute, but my last day of school was Monday, and I've been in temporary relaxation mode. Temporary because I'm teaching summer school, which starts tomorrow. :(
My bf and I have been hitting all kinds of outdoor music festivals! (Something I'm really into the summer, and fortunately, so is he!! LOL) So far we've gone to the B-Boy BBQ, and Odunde here in Philly, the Michael Jackson tribute in Newark, and the Carribbean Festival in DC. We are debating over whether we're going to Afro-Punk and the Fort Greene festivals in Brooklyn today. (Common and Mos Def will be at these!) It's looking unlikely because I go back to work tomorrow.
Anyway..... it's time for a color and trim, and I'm once again on the fence about whether to go black or keep the color. More than likely, I'll stay light for the summer. I can't help it.... you coily girls with black hair keep making me want to change mind! I miss the sheen I had with my black hair!
OK.... my bf is giving me the signal that he's ready to get out of here, so I will catch you later!
My Hair Yesterday.... this twistout is about 2 weeks old!!! The dirtier my hair, the more body I seem to have. I actually liked my hair this week a lot because for some reason it maintained moisture! (Except for a drypatch in the front that I must have missed when I was putting in my oil and mango butter!LOL)
Hey Coily Girls! Happy heatwave! (NOT!!!!) Humidity has not been my friend! LOL !!
I don't know about you, but I've been having some serious puffing and frizzing going on!!I've been having to wear one side of my hair up more often than not because my hair is on its own mission! Decided I needed to use more product in an attempt to keep my twistouts defined. I twist my hair with Twist/Loc gel w/ olive oil.It seems to be helping!
Here are some pics of my hair last week.This is my hair the day after I washed it. This is a twist-out with TINY twists!! I had to make them small because there was no other way my hair would dry by morning! I usually don't like my hair to be this shrunken, but the headband helped a little. (It's still a little damp here.)
Later, I pulled the curls down to stretch my length out a bit. (By 3:00, it was dry.) So, by the end of the day my hair was at its regular length. (I didn't take any pics though, sorry!) Anyway,had I stretched it any sooner, I would have had a serious case of FRIZZ!
This is my hair a day or so later. Dry twisted in FAT twists so my hair would hang down more.
I am an elementary school teacher. I am a Jersey girl who now resides in Philadelphia. New Jersey will always be home,though.
