Natural Hair and Crochet

OMG!!! Just realized as I was getting ready to post today that it has been almost a month since my last post. I have to say I loved my life more as a student than I do as an employeed person. When I worked at GM 4 days a week I still had more time than I do now for my crafting.

Last month Walgreens Pharmacy was premiering SheaMoisture product line and the special was buy 1 get 1 free so I stocked up on my favs. Curl Enhancing Smoothie, Reconstructive Elixir and new to my favs are African Black Soap Deep Cleansing Shampoo and Purification Masque also pictured is Yucca & Aloe Thickening Growth Milk(which my youngest Camille loves) Since I have dry scalp that has been very flaky with the changing of the weather as it always is the African Black Soap Shampoo and Purification Masque have been a true Godsend. Even Mr. M is liking it which I found to be good as he doesn't like to try new products especially if he thinks they are for girls only.




For those of you that like All Natural Products I have found they are good and live up to their advertisement as such. I recently changed my daily routine sine getting the new products and now I am washing my hair weekly with a Cowash mid week and then applying the Reconstructive Elixir as my oil as it is all I need. I have had much hair growth since my intial BC from my locs.

Here's my hair right after the Cowash tonight using the African Black Soap Purification Masque and the Reconstructive Elixir


I am still searching for hairstyles that fit my hairtype which I also finally took the time out to even diagnose. It is type 4b with some 4a mixed in the crown and very middle back of my hair. I did attempt to braid my hair Saturday and was not happy with how it was looking as it was a big distinction from my hair and the extention hair so I will have to get someone to braid it for me. Oh how I hate to pay for stuff I can do myself but this is a time that I may have to let that concept go. I also discovered a few new sites that are very educational for those considering, transitioning and rocking Natural hair. Rockin'It Napptural
and someone I am really loving is Ms. Nikki These are enough to get you started both provide a wealth of knowledge and give alot of resource information. A informed person is an empowered person.

Before I end this post to finish my laundry I want to share a project that I completed for a church member and spoke about in my previous post is here modeled by my oldest Carmen the pattern is found here
