Something New...and I Might Love It

So I was grabbing a few item from Target today and of course I had to make a trip down the hair aisle. I was going to stock up on a few of my staples and possibly, pick up a conditioner. I wanted to try the Nexxus (sp) Humectant conditioner. After roaming a little while longer I came cross the Suave line. I have seen a few of my haircare sistahs using this line, I've been against it since the body wash used to dry my skin out like nobody's business (Smelled great though!). Any who, after I purchased my items I couldn't wait to try my new conditionerS so I put a couple of squirts on my hair when I got into the car LMBO (my husband is going to get me for buying more hair stuff LOL). I let the conditioner sit in my hair and it felt like LOVE :) Here are some pictures of the exact conditioners I bought.

Now I can't give a full out recommendation because I just bought them today but I will keep you posted! I can't wait to see how this helps get me to APL :) yes yes yes.

First Time Use Pros:
Smells Greatttttttttt
Good slippage
Hair felt extremely moisturized (Including 9 week post-relaxer new growth)
Cheap price ($1.87)
Cute bottles LOL

First Time Use Cons:
None, but like I said...I'll keep you posted. husband has me watching the Lakers vs. New Orleans game and why is Kobe dunking on everybody out here? LOL

Work It Out Baby!!!

Guess what I'm about to do....get Insane with Insanity! Yessir ;) Just wanted to share that with you guys. I'll keep you posted about this as well!

Omgoodness that was crazy and all I did was part of the fit test. I did pretty decent here are my numbers for the parts I did do.

82 kick things

30 squat jumps

40 right side kicks.

We'll see how things go the next time I do it.

Natural Hair

Yo yo yo yo LOL. I'm just being goofy. I haven't written a blog in a while so here are a few updates!

I've decided to go natural AGAIN! This time I won't be cutting my hair off. After transitioning for 3 years I never cut my relaxed ends off nor was I cutting them off bit by bit. So as I was seeing my natural hair emerge more and more I got excited. I was also rocking some cute styles. Well guess what I did. Your right...I got too amped, woke up early as ever and cut my hair off. I was feeling confident about my hair, dropped the fear of scissors coming within a foot my head, and got down right crazy LOL. Here's a shot :(
What the world was I going to do with this mess??? Absolutely nothing, or so that's what I was thinking. I didn't feel like I could go to work with an afro and my cute little styles were out the door. So....I did what a lot of people do when they jump the gun. I relaxed my hair again LOL.

8 months later I'm back where I was 3 months before my college graduation (GO BLUE!), i'm transitioning. Although, I miss my transitioning hair (it was getting so long SAD FACE) I don't fully regret what I did. I now know not to get so excited that I do something so extremely radical. I'll be sticking with my long-term transitioning sistahs out there LOL. I'll be 9 weeks post this Friday and I'm already feeling my beautiful curls :)

Stay tuned loves. Thanks for the read deuces (in my Derwin Davis voice)
