Hair updates!!!

It’s been a LONG time since I did a formal hair update, so I have plenty to write about! OK, so the last time I updated you was in June… shoot, that’s like six months ago! Good grief! Let’s get started. A year of twists and flaky scalp issues. I mentioned in June that I…

My regimen: Fall/Winter 2010

Here’s another update on my regimen for fall/winter 2010. Actually, I think my regimen is more to the point – I’ve taken off my product junkie crown and that is totally streamlining the products I’m using.

Going shampoo crazy!

I think I was going a bit crazy with shampoo. OK, so I have a rebellious scalp. When my hair was in the kinky twists, I shampooed every two weeks and my scalp was great. It was flake-free and happy. My twists have been out since mid-December and I’ve been playing around with some other…
