I’ve been meaning to do a length check, but the time I washed my hair and actually stopped to take pics of the length, I realized I took pics of the wrong side. In order to keep things relatively equal, I’ll take pics of the correct side when I wash my hair again.

I pre-poo’d with my Vatika oil on Friday evening. I wrapped my hair in saran wrap and a scarf and let it marinate overnight. I’ve been pre-pooing for a while now and honestly, I still don’t feel a difference. I’ve tried different oils and everything. Maybe the difference is minimal.

Earlier in the week, I noticed that my scalp was itchy and flaky. I twisted my hair for the night and noticed all of the flakes on my clothes and around the sink. I haven’t had flaky scalp in forever (with the exception of my hairline, which has completely cleared up). I was wondering what product I used that might have caused this. I remembered that I used the KimmayTube leave in on dry hair for a few days prior to twisting it. In addition, I had used the Vatika oil the night before. It’s hard to tell which one might have caused it.

…and speaking of flaky scalp, my sister used Miss Jessie’s Curly Meringue in her hair and it came out so nice. Her curls were extremely defined for a wash and go, although it felt a lot drier than it needed to be. She was pleased with her curls (I was probably more excited about them), until she discovered flakes on her clothes the very next day. That warranted an immediate washing session. She said it was so bad that she almost created a blog to write about it. She told me to tell all of my blog friends not to use it. Consider yourself warned.

Here are her curls…



Last night I did absolutely nothing with my hair. When I say nothing, I mean nothing… nada… zero… zilch. I didn’t even pass my fingers through it. I just put my satin bonnet on and went to sleep. When I woke up this morning and looked in the mirror, I asked myself why I didn’t twist my hair last night, but I just put on my headband and left the house.

All day today people kept saying that my hair looked nice. Every time I saw myself in the mirror, all I could do was laugh… literally! I looked a hot mess! LOL. I could have at least fluffed it and separated the twists a little. Instead, I just let it be, but I most definitely twisted my hair tonight.

I feel like since I cut my hair, I don’t have as much to blog about. There’s no transitioning struggle, there aren’t too many different styles, I’ve kind of reached a plateau. At this point, it’s all about hair growth. Which reminds me, I wanted to make a growth chart T-shirt. Perhaps I’ll do that during this hurricane Irene weekend.
