Same ol Same ol!

Just another regular wash day. I shampooed with this shampoo one of my aunt’s gave me called Miss Beauty it’s made in South Africa. I would not recommend it I think I will give it back to her or something. I realized much later that it is actually a neutralizing colour indicator shampoo as well. It does not lather well, quite flat, has no scent I had to pump the bottle several times to get a good lather so no thank you I will not be using it again. The packaging was not appealing to me for lack of a better word but I have been disappointed by products in beautiful appealing packaging before so I usually try not to let the packaging dissuade me from purchasing or trying out a product. That being said manufacturers please bear in mind that packaging is it, so make sure that your product actually does what it says and comes in an appealing packaging as well; human beings are very visual the better the packaging the more inclined they are to want to try it out. Shampoo done I conditioned with Organics conditioner as usual; I am hooked on this conditioner I need to switch it up for my next wash before it gets too used to my hair. I haven’t gotten round to doing a proper deep conditioning treatment with products meant for that specific purpose since my touch up. Been running up and down, job hunting, running errands etc so I just let the regular conditioner sit on my hair for a little while before rinsing out.
Conditioner I highly recommend! Shampoo is a no no for me
So I am sitting here post t-shirt blotting, air drying my hair as I type this post. Honestly the way this conditioner leaves my hair feeling I don’t see the need to apply any leave in conditioner post rinsing so I simply applied coconut oil to seal in the moisture and let it air dry that way. My hair feels as soft as a feather pillow seriously. Since it is early evening my time I will just leave the scalp oiling with my amla/castor oil mix and moisturizing for tomorrow; I have done it this way severally and my hair is still usually soft and feeling moisturized the next morning.  And now I am hungry so off to make some veggie stir fried noodles and then resume my job applications, till next time ladies adios! And it just hit me that today is my actual 3yr blog anniversary! Happy anniversary Crowning Glory many more to come:)

My go to styles these days are 80% buns 20% braidouts they are just so user friendly:)

Touched up finally!

So I finally caved in and touched up at almost 32 weeks post, longest stretch so far! I used the same relaxer like I did last time.

I self relaxed/texlaxed and strangely enough the process was much easier than previous times this time round. I detangled and then sectioned my hair into four parts unlike my usual three and quite honestly I prefer four sections to three. Much easier to work around. I based my scalp, hairline, neck and ears with the scalp protecting gel that came with the kit and then proceeded to self relax. I started off with a rat tail comb and abandoned it after the second application and used my hands instead I work faster with my hands as opposed to a using a comb, I smoothened using my hands as well. The entire process application, smoothening and wait time took about fifteen minutes. I rinsed it off and then neutralized using the neutralizing shampoo that came with the kit. I can’t remember how long I took rinsing and shampooing but it was quite long I don’t mess with residue relaxer so I had to make sure it was all out before conditioning. Conditioning done I rinsed off and then t-shirt dried, applied my leave in, coconut oil and then blow dried on medium heat. I will do a proper intensive deep condition in a few days I was out of time this time; so much to do so little time.
Nairobi I have Dudu Osun African Black Soap for sale if interested please email me It’s Ksh 400 only.
