2 in 1

So as always I'm having some serious hair issues. I want to tuck my hair away. As in my last post I stated I couldn't wear a hat forever and I really can't. So I was on youtube and ran across a phenomenal hair stylist that goes by the name Honey Hand.

She does amazingggg techniques. I literary want to take a trip to the UK to visit her for my next do.
Don't believe me just Watch.

Yea I just used my Trindad James voice hehehe.
But seriously this girl got skills, two things ran through my mind while watching this.
1. Dang, I gotta find someone who can copy this work.
2. Aw Hell I should just practice and do it myself.

Anyone who knows me knows that I am a fan of HAIR, hair styling, and taking care of hair.
Most people and also myself thought I should attend beauty school based off my love for the field but, it's more of a hobby for me. I don't think I need to licenses my hands to do hair out my home as a side hustle, Can I get a, Amen!

So anyway back to the topic. I have so many styles I want to try. I just need to figure out which style I'm actually going to do.
Didn't I mention I brought two need products. One was the Aussie Moist Leave in spray.
And the other was the infamous Cantu Leave in Repair Cream.
Last night I co-washed on four day hair with the Aussie Moist Conditioner (can you tell i'm feeling Aussie)  then I just used a towel to soak up the drip but I didn't dry my hair I left it damp. Sprayed the Leave in all over my hair then took a nice sized amount of the Leave in creme and rubbed it all over my hair.

I felt a change as soon as I did both. My hair was soft and fluffy feeling even after it had dried. Not to mention when I slept (on it all dried) it did not mat to my head nor did I wake up feeling like my hair was a rug. I'm not sure which one did the job but I loveee the combination and will defiantly be two of my staple products.

One day away from Three months Natural

I went in a hidden place, but it was for the good. 
Besides the obvious, I been feeling really down about my hair. Before I went natural I did what most transistioners on. I looked at hair pictures day in and day out and hoped for my hair to be as curly as the next natural.

Well I see why it isn't good to do that. When I first chopped like always I couldn't get a curl. Then I went out and brought ECO styling gel, You know, the olive oil one every one swears by.
After co-washing I would throw that all threw my hair and watch it dry and curl up. As of lately that gel has not been working for me as easy as before and that damn gel has been flaky and leaving all kinds of white residue all in my hair and I HATE that.

So I got fed up and not to mention I don't want my money being spent in the direction of hair products nor am I trying to run out of space to store my products so I don't buy a lot of them. Since being natural (doing my big chop on feb 1st.) I brought seven products and two of those seven I brought today. The average girl would probably has twice as much LOL.

Anyhow my hair when wet doesn't really show any wave or curly but the ends do curls at certain sections. But Boy OH Boy when I throw that conditioner in, Babyyy I get curls galore. But I think any hair type would curl up with conditioner in it, Right? Anyway.

I go to work wearing a hat, I go out wearing a hat, and when I'm going out out, I wear a wig.
I cant get my hair to look moisturized, It doesn't curl up with just applying gel, and it seems like I can only get a curl when I finger curl and my, might I say I don't feel to do that too often.

Where's my confidence? I thought I was going to be ready to bust out the door and be feeling myself. LOL But, no it hasn't happened yet. However I still have time. I haven't brought any hair accessories or did eye shadow or anything so...Pray for me. Until next time.
