    Default Re: Random Nappy Thoughts Summer 2019

    I had another "eff it" moment...sorta-kinda...

    The only shampoos I had in the house were a clarifying shampoo and a protein restructuring shampoo. I wanted a simple moisturizing shampoo so I ended up buying the Shea Moisture Manuka Honey and Yogurt Hydrate and Repair shampoo. And because I call myself trying to use products that are supposed to work together, I went on and got the conditioner as well. Used both last weekend and whaddaya know? my hair felt pretty good.

    Unfortunately I got it into my head to do a braidout...so after applying my leave-in and oil and letting my hair dry in large twists overnight, I put it in about 25 far-too-small braids using very diluted CRN Curl Maker as a styler. You'd think I'd have figured out after all these years that although I still have a lot of hair on my head, my strands themselves are very fine...which means I end up spending way too much time putting braids in and way too much time taking them out.

    I wouldn't have minded the time putting them in if I knew I was going to get a decent result...but after leaving them in for a good two days, I took them out and my hair just went POOF like I hadn't applied any styler at all. Mannnnn...
    How will your 2019 be different than any other year?

    Put my hair away in some individual braided locs and I'm not doing my hair again for 6 weeks . I'm trying out Essy hair growth oil with caffeine on my scalp. We will see if it makes a difference.

    What night cream are you using, Dee?

    Thank you, Dee. I will try this and a few of their other skin care products. Have you tried anything else from their skin care line?

    @AutumnRain I also use their natural deodorant, the face cream and the toner spray. Love all of them.
    The face cream is VERY thick and rich to put on and needs a warm hand or one of those sonic things to blend it in. If your hand is cold it just turns your face white. I use less than a dime. It's great for the neck and chest.

    Their natural deodorant I only use once every 2 days. So I alternate with a Body Crystal. If I use it any more often it irritates my skin.

    I tried their shampoo and conditioner a few years ago and it left my hair feeling very rough and dry. Recently, my skin began breaking out a little. I see that they have a blemish control line that I want to try but I have to wait until all of it is back in stock.

    What a dissapointment. It reminds me of the time my locks got stuck together at the roots after doing two strand twists. I left the twists in for a few days and was rather excited to see my wavy locks. Instead I spent hours trying to get them seperated. That's what I get for not using a moisturizer.
