New Do

I pretty much have a set regimen for my hair....

Fridays- Wash, Deep Condition, Twist
Saturdays- Wear twists or wrap them up in a scarf or tam
Sundays- Twist Out
Mondays- 2nd day Twist Out
Tuesdays- Curly Afro on 3rd day Twist Out hair OR puff
Wednesdays- Co-Wash and wear a puff or wash and go
Thursdays- 2nd day puff or wash and go

If I'm wearing a twist out, I re-twist each night, and I do the baggy method every other night to keep my hair super moisturized.  To baggy, I very lightly spritz (2-3 sprays) my hair with my water, glycerin, leave in conditioner, and lavender oil mixture and then I place a plastic bag over my hair and I put my satin bonnet over the plastic bag.

This little routine works pretty well, except on the Fridays we host a small group at our home, I don't necessarily want people to see me looking like Aunt Jemima as I deep condition and dry wet twists.  I don't mind terrorizing the public at large, but I won't do that to people I know personally.  Also, my hair is getting longer and more of a chore to wear out.  I have to combat knots and very long detangling not cool!  I'm also searching for more protective styles.

I don't really care to wear my hair in twists, and I don't know how my hair would look braided into a style.  I don't want to look like an oversized kid.  I really don't have enough hair for a pony tail, but for the second time, I've forced the little hair that I do have into one.  My hair in the front is much shorter than in the back, so at this point, I have to get really creative when trying to make a pony tail.  I find this quite funny, because I used to make lot's of laughs about people who would do such a thing.  It's funny how God brings things full circle.

Now the laughs on me!

Do you do anything different to prepare your hair for fall and winter?


  1. God has brought me full circle on so many things, too! I can totally relate. Things I said I would never do and now ... I guess He keeps us humble this way.

    But I love your ponytail. It's cute.

    And I pretty much wear my hair in a ponytail every day because I can't be bothered to do anything with it. My hair is so ugly, it's ridiculous, but oh well. I give up. :)


  2. Amy, your hair looks great to me! At least you have hair. Some people are not so fortunate.
