Wash Routine After 5 Weeks Sew-In

I think I could have went another week, but I was excited to try my new shampoo and conditioner duo by Camille Rose Naturals! Ok, so I can never take out my own sew-ins, and when I do, I always end up cutting over an inch of hair. So, my nice fiance always cuts out my hair for me. 💋💑

  • I rub my braids with a mixture of Coconut Oil and Rosemary Oil. I wrap a plastic bag on my head and let it sit for 15 minutes before I start to take down my braids. Also, I keep dipping my hand in the mixture as I take my braids down, less tangles.
  • I do not detangle or use a comb when I take my braids down. I usually let it sit for an hour or so without heat after I take the braids out, but I was feeling extra lazy, so I ended up sleeping with it.
  • I wash my scalp once with V05 Clarifying Shampoo, then I follow up with CRN Cleansing Rinse, then I apply the CRN Conditioning Custard in sections
  • I finger detangle first, then I use a comb to work out the rest of the dead hair and tangles. I don't deep condition this go round, again, laziness 😆
  • I wrap my hair in a t-shirt, but my hair doesn't take long to dry, I actually have to re-damp it
  • I apply Sweet almond oil, and then a styling butter
  • I grab the ends of my hair and kind of shake it, then I shake my head to get my curls to separate and clump where I need them to for a nice wash-n-go style

PS: I'm wearing the plastic bag under this wig!

I didn't use this conditioning pack this time, I wanted to, but got lazy

The end result! Love the curls and definition!

Vlog Magick v.6: My Growing Walgreen's Addiction

Hey, lovelies! It's been a while. May is still Mental Health Awareness month, so I'm exercising working on myself this month. It's especially important to me because I'm getting a year older in my dirty thirty's. It's both bittersweet and eye opening. I'm finding my depths this month, more so than I have ever been tried in all my 31 years. I'm finding a strength I didn't know I had in myself, and it's growing everyday. I still have many obstacles to overcome, but day by day, a girl is kicking the ass of all the negativity coming my way. I just keep reminding myself and telling myself that this season is almost over. I'm still winning in my own special way. Lovelies, what ways are you taking care of yourself this month?

Adulting: Mental Health Awareness Month

I didn't realize my birth month is #MentalHealthAwarenessMonth. Funny how the first day of the month I have a complete mental breakdown. I'm fine now. Actually the next day I was doing much better.

I knew that transitioning my blog from my budding writing career to a lifestyle blog would be an interesting transition. I am usually secretive and tend to keep my feelings to myself. I knew that somewhere there would be an enemy or foe scowling at my posts, or making jokes at my expense. Which is fine, it comes with the territory. I don't do this for you, I do this for the lone girl that's out there like me. For the person who thinks they are the only one who suffers. I'm open because I'm strong enough to be open. I'm open about my PCOS and the facial hair that comes with it, because I'm inspired by those women who were brave enough to share their experiences.

I'm experiencing what I'm coining 'Environmental Sadness'. My surroundings are mak…
