the infamous bun: step 6 healthy hair journey

Basically I'm all out of my hair ideas, so I decied to do a sleek classic look.  I cowashed my hair and need a cute look to runs some errand.  I had no time to creat a style so I just slicked my hair back with flaxseed gel that I made and used a hair donut to create a polished look.  Not only is this a quick style, it also can be an amazing pre-pooing style or protective style for the winter.

Now im taking my hair bake to its roots, THE FRO! After washing my hair I brushed it out then picked it out with an afro pick.  It was simple, easy, and still no heat :)

BIG HAIR: step 4 healthy hair journey

My roller set is about 3 days old and it still looks good but a bit fizzy and loose.  I was watching the BET awards and got inspired when Tracy Ellis Ross graced the stage! As always her hair looked amazing and super bouncy.  I started to experiment with my hair by finger combing my hair ruffly.  I also pulled my hair forward creating a bang, which made my hair look larger than life.  Over All this was a super success!! Finger combing an old roller set will give you bouncy poofy BIG HAIR!

My keratin treatment is slowly fading out of my hair so half of my hair is fuzzy and the other half is smooth, so ive been trying more styles to keep my hair healthy.  I started with wash hair and detangled with Carol's Daughter Black Vanilla Leave-In Conditioner to detangle my hair(my favorite detangler!!) then I oiled my scalp with Dr. Miracles Gro Oil.  Once my hair was detangled and scalp was oiled, I applied Organix Coconut Milk Split End Mender to help smooth my ends.  Then I sectioned my hair into 4 parts and applied a very small amount of Optimum Shine Booster to make my hair super shiny(a little goes a long way with this product).  Once I was ready to roll my hair I sprayed it with a mixture of water and Lotta Body, then rolled my hair as tight as I could, but my mom had to reroll most :) The next morning i had bouncy curls. Give it a go! All you truly need to some Lotta Body to hold the curls
