My hair today May 29th

Pouf updo. I used combs to create the look. Put the African growth gel to create some shine and slickness. Touched up the edges with Eco Styler Olive.

My hair May 17th

I did a flat-twist with Jamaican Black Castor Oil. First time trying it. It's very thick. For each section, I spritzed with Jane Carter's leave-in, a little Pura Body Naturals leave-in and a touch of the JBCO.

Did a blow-out on Saturday, then dry flat-twists yesterday. Well I sprayed a little Jane Carter Revitalizing Leave-in first. Took the twists out this morning.

My hair today May 3rd & African Formula Super Grow Hair Gel

Pulled back one side with 2 side combs. Pulled out some of the spiral curls left over from my flexi-rod set more and picked the roots.

Put some SheaMoisture Yucca Thickening Milk throughout, some African Formula Super Grow Gel on the pulled back side and finished with SM Reconstructive Elixir.

My cousin put me onto the gel last summer, but I haven't used it for more than my edges and nape since it's a growth gel. There is no hold whatsoever. I plan to use it more for twist-outs and stuff, my hair is thin and I can use all the help I can get. That's how my cousin uses it (twist-outs) and her hair looks so healthy! It gives the most awesome shine and the smell reminds me of Let's Jam from back in the day :) Perhaps this in conjunction with the Deity Plant Shampoo that I use will be a good combo. I use this shampoo almost everytime I wash my hair, but I don't mention it as much. Not sure why :/

Here's some more info about the gel from the link above:

My hair today May 2nd

Put some Karen's Body Beautiful Butter Love (in Lavender Vanilla, yummy!) throughout and pulled it out a bit with my hands. Then pulled the sides back with side combs and smoothed them with Jane Carter's Nourish & Shine and some Eco Styler gel on the edges. Topped it off with some SheaMoisture Raw Shea Butter Elixir.

My Hair Today May 1st

So it's looking like a large coil-out today. I put a headband to make things easier and fluffed it with my hands. It's raining and the dew point is over 50...not helping.
