Now I like this!

I may not be fond of Shea Moisture's Deep Treatment Masque but this shampoo is one of the best shampoos I have used in like forever! It didn't leave  my hair feeling like a cotton ball and it actually felt moisturized. Complete shocker! I purchased this from my local Walgreens for $9.99 and I will say this will be my added to my arsenal of  hair products.

I am now on a mission to find a great deep conditioner and a creamy based moisturizer that is great for doing twist outs and such. I still use their Curl Enhancing Smoothie but it doesn't give me the defined look I'm looking for. I have to use gel with the product to get the look I want.

So again I'm open to suggestions! Your feedback is greatly appreciated!

Some Deep Conditioner!!

Something that JUST came to my mind is, "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". Well that's how I feel right about now about deep conditioners. We all like to switch it up a bit and try new things so that's what I did. You all know I love Neutrogenas' Deep Conditioner and I've had nothing but great moments with that product.

So my cousin gave me her Shea Moisture's Deep Treatment Masque...pictured below

Talk about a major let down! If my hair could cry it cried after using this product. Another product that basically beat my hairs ASS is this one....

This is Bio Infusion Olive Oil Deep Conditioning Treatment that I purchased from Walgreens for $7.99 and quite frankly I want my money back! Both products left my hair feeling COMPLETELY stripped like a shampoo with sulfate would! I had a major WTH moment! See I wanted to purchase one of the other 2 deep conditioners by Shea Moisture but I was afraid because of how the Masque left my hair feeling!

So there are 2 morals to this story....I'm sticking to Neutrogena UNTIL somebody suggests a deep conditioner that actually does what it's suppose to. Ironically the Shea Moisture Masque says for "dry, damaged hair" SHIT (excuse my language) that product left my hair feeling dry and completely damaged. I'm throwing one away and giving the other one away to SOMEBODY. 

So please if you all have ANY suggestions please comment!

I never finished...

So I never finished my 30 day blog challenge. Why? Because I've been LAZY :) MAYBE when I get off work I'll get back to it. I also made a recent purchase on hair products that I will be posting later today.

The take down

I finally took my twists out tonight! Yayyy! I did them on the 18th and kept them in until the 30th. That's the longest I have ever kept twists in my hair! Here are some before and after pictures so that you all can see the state of my twists before I took them out and what it looked like after.

This is the back view and as you can see my hair shrunk drastically!
The front of my hair gets messed up so bad! I actually redid the front over once since I had them in. On the last day I just pulled it back with a headband! I felt hopeless over the front.

Yay! It's all out!

I actually LOVE the way my hair looks out so I'm thinking that I may keep it like this until like Sunday. I am way overdue for a wash so we shall see! My plan is to do mini twists again in about 2 weeks but idk. Time will tell.
