    Default Witty And Clever Title For Randomn Nappy Hair Thoughts

    My niece and baby cousin were born 6 months apart but are thick as thieves now. In the first couple of years, it looked like my niece had inherited my sisters slow growing hair gene and it was not thriving unlike compared to her baby cousin who had won the hair lottery via her dad (no he's black, only he has that "good hurr"). But now, almost 5 years later, after my sister fell into the hair natural hair community for the second time and know what she's doing, it is my niece has a head full of hair that can be pulled into Minnie Mouse puffs whereas my baby cousin's mom struggles trying to make her hair grow. She (my cousin) did sen out a shout out on FB for help with the hair but I bet that her relentless need have her child's hair perfect all the time probably isn't helping.

    Looks like I'm using KCCC and Knot Today for the rest of the summer. It lasts a few days with spritzing (with water) and sealing with oil. By the fourth or fifth day, I can use the Spiral Spritz to "reset" without haing to rinse if I'm feeling lazy.

    I'm also not liking the change in the formula of the Giovanni Direct Leave In at all; it does not play well with my Curl Junkie Aloe Fix like the previous formula. Had to buy the old stand by, the Shea Moisture Reconstructing Leave-In. Going to finger detangle again on Thursday and start the process over.

    Chatted with a nice young lady in Ricky's, who had the cutest patch of green hair at the front of her TWA.

    Hitting the African festival in Brooklyn tomorrow. It's going to be hot, so I'm definitely pulling my hair back. On a side note, I did a random length check in the work bathroom and I'm starting to pass BSL on my lower most layer. Progress. Well on my way to Waist Length and beyond.

    I've been feeling like my hair looks straight crazy (except for the bun) but people compliment me, LOL. I don't know what they are seeing because all I see is uber frizz and gray hair.
    GOT PANK??

    Had a bantu knot out to go wrong earlier this week, so I pulled it all back and to the right side, and wore a curly side ponytail the last 3 days. What was initially a 'plan B', last minute style ended up getting me several compliments - most notably from my son and husband. Nice!!

    Just spent the last two days doing mini twists. Today is three years since my big chop and i realize that Each year up to this point has kind of been a theme for me:

    0-1 year - transition, big chop, pre-product junkyism
    1-2 years - full on product junkyism and style frenzy
    2-3 years - went back to the wash and go to remember my actual hair texture after the style frenzy

    So now year 3-4 I plan to try and keep my hair twisted the majority of the year and see what happens.

    Once I leave work, I will pick up some items for my hair needs and then I will commence the weekend hair extravaganza.
