Now a big part of retaining the length and health of my hair is keeping it well moisturized. Before (and after) each protective style, I like to give myself a nice hot oil and/or deep conditioning treatment. I lucked up and found some of my favorite essential oils at a great price and I jumped on the deal. I paid about $1.25 for each tube and I saw them for $
3.29 at beauty supply store in my neighborhood. Can you say STEAL! Anyhow, I got every one they had to offer and some.
The Solution: Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Vitamin E Oil, Argon Oil, Tea Tree Oil, Cocoa butter Oil.
The Process: Lightly wet hair, Saturate in The Solution, Cover in Gold shower cap, Blow dry on Low/Medium Setting for about 10-15 mins, Let sit for 45 mins.
After: Wash and Style as usual

You hit the beauty supply store with the “eye of the tiger”. Hair bands

Wanna see something scary?????
Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!! THIN LIMP HAIR!
Lol , I’m just kidding but those thin, limp , dyed , fried , frayed ends are by far the scariest thing I’ve seen all year. This is Me , pre-Big Chop!! About 6 months before I decided to take that huge step into Natural Fabulosity! I had pretty good length and I can’t lie I loooooved that golden blond bang (bangbang) but as you can see …. it was a pure mess! The shedding was rediculous, the thickness was non-exsistant & moisture went AWOL to say the least. Between the
creamy crack & my flatiron there was some vicious love triangle going on that I had to put to an end & fast! So…….. I BIGCHOP’d & ****wahlah**** almost like magic ….. I’m on my way back , full & in effect!!!
