Results of my twist out using AsIam twist defining creme

 I am so loving my hair right now.  I did a quick twist out last night on my hair because I was tired of wearing it in a puff.  I love it!! I want to redo it because i dont think i used enough of the twist cream...the last time it twist with it...I used too much and my hair was very sticky.  But I still like it...I think I just need to figure out exactly how much to use.

Today is my Hair-Anniversary!!!

Today is my hair-anniversary!!! What is that you might say?  That is the day i got tired of fighting between the two hair textures and did a big chop!! Its funny how looking back on that day...I didn't really know how I felt about the big chop! It really took some getting use to.  The reaction from a lot of people didn't help, some of the opinions were very negative...Don't get me wrong I really didn't care what most of them was the fact that they thought they had a right to say anything.

So One year has passed and I am loving my hair.  Sometimes there are days when I am mad because it feels like it is taking so long to grow, but when I look back on when i first big chopped...I see my hair has really grown.... :-)  I still like to try new products but i have my favorite which is shea moisture. 

I see people that are where I was a year ago and I try to tell them that you really have to be ready for this journey that you will embark on when you decide to go natural.  It is truly not for everyone, well I think it can be, but they have to be open to the changes that will come with it.

My favorites are listed below:

Favorite Shampoo: AsIam
Favorite Conditioner: for detangling Kinky Curly Knot Today,  Regular: Herbal Essence Totally Twisted and Suave Coconut Conditioner
Favorite Styler:  Shea Moisture Curling Enhance Smoothie

Favorite Hair Styles: Twist out and Puff, waiting until it gets warmer so I can wash and go!!

New Product in my basket!

Okay let me start by saying I have been in product  My chosen product is Shea Moisture...but I still like to dibble and dabble in other products every once in a while.  I visited the product AsIam a few months back and i really liked it but i didn't want to spend the money...which is what is wrong with a few natural people i see, they heads be looking so RATCHET!!! and I ask them what they are using and they are using a lot of products that are not made especially for natural hair and they wonder why their hair don't look have to invest in your hair...I'm not saying buy all these products but you spend $40 to $50 to get your hair done when you had a perm...spend that much on some products and it only takes a little so you will have those products for 3 to 6 months....but I digress...let me get back to the topic at

Sally's Beauty Supply was having a sale on the AsIam product line buy 2 get 1 free, plus I had a coupon...woot woot!!!  I bought the shampoo, conditioner and this little baby right here. 

 I have heard nothing but great things about this product and I really liked it when I used the sample packs I received from a friend.  So this week I will be using the Twist Defining Cream to twist my hair.  I hope it turns out great!

No need for words...Enjoy :-))

Happy Birthday to me!!!

So today is my 38th birthday!!! Woot Woot!!! I am so excited about it, I love birthday's and I love to celebrate mine.  A good friend made the statement to me that, "its probably hard on any man who i dated since my birthday is so close to Valentines Day.  WTH!!! I don't care nothing about Valentines day!!! My birthday is special to only me, Valentines Day is special to everyone else!!!

Yes, I like getting gifts on Valentines Day, but the gift that counts the most is my Birthday... :-)

This birthday was so special because I spent time with my family on both my dads side and my moms side and then spent time with friends.  That is so important to me.

This is my year...God has shown me that by the things he has been doing, the doors he is opening up and the relationships he has been restoring....

So I have been playing with my hair.  Working on perfecting my twist.  My hair is just finding when i leave my twist in at least two days i have a deeper twist.  I have to do them medium if i want the perfect twist.  If i do them to big, there is no definition, its just a big puff ball....if i do them small, i dont like the twist out...if looks to limp...i did my twist with Shea Moisture of course...I have some AsIam twist cream that I will  be trying out this week stay tuned..

Is there a packing App???

Take a good look at this suitcase below...I say that because I am going on a trip and I am expected to put the clothes I am taking into this bag, for a three day weekend trip...really???...Help!!! I need a app to download on my

If you have ever traveled with me, you know that I carry a big bag when i travel, the bag will be packed with the a lot of options....what if its cold, what if I'm bloated and i need a bigger shirt, what is i don't like the way i look in this shirt, what if my shoes start to know that and many more "what ifs".  The bad part of bringing all that stuff is, is that I don't wear it all...but also i hold the group up because I will change about 5 to 6 times and I always go back to the shirt I originally choose...which I know frustrated everyone...but look at the inside of this want me to put all my stuff in there...REALLY???

I just don't know...but I promised I would at least if I have them making a store run to buy me a new shirt of something its going to be all on
