Don’t Judge Me

But… I still have my ponytail from when I cut my hair on July 22, 2011. It’s been in a zip lock bag since then. It’s still as soft as when it was on my head. Unfortunately, it’s not long enough to donate to Locks of Love.

I wonder what my natural hair journey would have been like if I didn’t decide to cut off the relaxed ends that evening, after transitioning for 16.5 long months.

The one product I wish I had while transitioning is Kinky Curly Knot Today. My biggest problem with transitioning was detangling my hair after washing it and that product would have made my life a whole lot easier.

It was hard for me to let go of my hair, but I knew it would be better in the long run. I’m glad to read that I’m not the only one. SupaNaturalTammy from YouTube mentions that when she did her big chop, she cut off everything except for her bang. She called it her “sanity piece” and held onto it for a few days. LOL. Love her!

In any case… don’t judge me. Maybe one day I’ll be able to part with it.

Black Friday Shopping

I just completely disrespected my checking account and helped myself to some Black Friday deals!

I bought a truckload of stuff from CreamAndCoco.com. I’ve been dying to try her products, but I’ve been holding out since Black Friday was coming so soon. I bought the following:

  • Sweet Pumpkin Soap
  • Cream & Coco Hair Care Sampler Mini
  • Brown Sugar, Honey & Marshmallow Scalp Scrub (never tried a scalp scrub before. I’m curious)
  • Moroccan Mint & Chocolate Clay Mask & Scrub set (I love face masks)
  • Pomegranate Mint Julep Lip set
  • Then I skipped on over to DarcysBotanicals.com. I’ve been meaning to try the Pumpkin Seed Curl Moisturizing Conditioner probably since I became a natural hair chic! Finally, I’ll be trying it. I also bought the Peppermint Scalp Elixir because my scalp has issues and I like that this product is in a spray bottle so I can spray exactly where I’d like to oil.

    I’ll be sure to do reviews of the products as I try them. Can’t wait! Someone put my card away so I can’t order anything else today! *giggles*

    Coming up later… the style I chose for Thanksgiving!

    XOXO,
