Hair & product haul

Been swamped! I am back in school and so finding time to blog is becoming an art.

I finally made it to Sally's and I left with three things:
1. Silk Elements Mega Cholesterol (for my JBCO DCs)..I'll have to do a review. I almost ended up getting something else because there are so many SE conditioners but I decided to stick with the one I'd read up the most about first.

2. A huge bottle of my staple protein, Aphogee 2 minute reconstructor -this was 9.99, I paid 7.99 for the small one at my other bss

3. A Sally's member card. I paid 5 bucks for it but I get 5 bucks back next month so it's already going to pay for itself. I need to replenish some items in Oct and I can't wait to go back. Especially since I'll be in my new place by then (I'm moving) yipeeeee!

So I did my weekly 2 minute protein and DC last Saturday night. I wanted to do a check to see how the JBCO has been working. Here's my wet to you think it compares with the one I took at the beginning?

Does it look like I filled in a little? I don't see growth but I think the middle looks better. I think I'm going to be disappointed when I relax in Oct but whatever, I tried.

Anyhoo, I attempted a twist out and NOTHIN! Was a hot mess so I ended up bunning. I AM OFFICIALLY OVER BRAID AND TWIST OUTS lol. Seriously, too much effort and though they work sometimes, when they don't work, this disappointment is too huge. I had somewhere to go and ended up looking mighty strange plus trying to tame a twist out into a bun results in loss of hair. I'll stick to my rollers.

Check my 7 week NG. ching ching!
I think this is yesterday's bun.

Washing and rolling tonight.


  1. That's alright. I had given up on twistouts too. It took me almost 2 years to try a twist out again. It turned out perfect, but I researched and watched several different videos on ways to do it. The way above was very very unsuccessful for me.

    I do see you hair filling in. There probably will be some length. Your hair is wet and you are about 8/9 weeks post. Your hair very grows fast, don't prematurely count your progress out. We'll see!

  2. Yea, I'm gonna give twist and braid outs a break. I'll stick to buns and roller sets
