So Chris rock was on Oprah today, and Im so mad i missed it. It looks like it was a good head, she even had solange on the show. And she confirmed that it is all her hair on her head, a la tyra style, stick your hand in my head. Check out the vid below.

Did you guys catch the episode? Did you like it?

So I recieved my package from Quel to day. It had been a little delayed due to some administration details that needed to be worked out. (Proly something to do with cross-border shipping)

Anyway i think that they came a really good time. If you don’t remember I won a contest that Quel was hosting and I won a Creme of Nature Shampoo and conditioner. I recieved red clover and aloe shampoo (for dry hair and flaky scalp {both of which i currently have}) and the jojoba and olive oil deep conditioning treatment (for dehydrated hair)

So I am very excited and will try them out on wash day(which is sunday)

My current hair issues.

1. My roots are dry, terribley dry

2. My scalp is itching me like crazy, there is no build-up, I oil it and try to be tender but it still itches like a fiend.

3. My ends split like no-bodies business, Im not even playin. Even the baby hairs are splitting. Why! Whats up with that, and more importantly how do I prevent it from recurring after I chop, -yeah i said chop -off my ends?

The end part of my hair is more moisturized because I apply products about every other day. But Im worried that I will lose the length i’ve gained because of improper or poor hair care.

Would castor oil, or henna help strenghten my hair enough to prevent the breakage?

I’ve been tagged by back to curly. Woot!

So Here goes 10 things about me

  1. I love to read
  2. I love cats and dogs and am working on getting my mom to agree to getting a dog.
  3. I am short or petite 5’2″ ( the rest of my fam is at least 5’6″
  4. I like to make jewellery and to bake ( yeah I know its too things, but there both about making stuff :))
  5. I am the oldest girl and the second oldest child (which can really suck, those of you who have younger siblings will understand :D)
  6. I think that I am boring
  7. I would love to travel and tour France, Italy, Greece, heck I wanna see most of Europe!
  8. Most ppl think that I look like im 12 (which is a major pet peeve of mine, common now folks, think abit)
  9. I love shoes, bags and makeup (yeah I know its typical stuff, but i wasnt into this stuff years ago, so now im enjoying them.
  10. Like to Back to Curly, I took would love to publish a book ( though i dread having to promote it, Oh heres another point, I don’t like being in the spotlight)

Well thats it, check out Back to Curly and see what her 10 things are and to check out who else she tagged

So I am officially apart of the hand in head syndrome group. I twisted my hair in two strand twists, and they just feel so nice, i catch myself all the time playing and twirling strands, I also realize that i need to cut not trim my ends and badly ( i know i keep repeating this) but i need a pair of scissors for trimming only.

My love as come along.Sry. I had to :).
So what I mean is at last I took out my hair, Im happy about it for two reasons. One i get to see, touch and play in my own hair and not have to worry about the wind and second, Im really pleased with the growth I have, mind you I have to take off at least an inch because of my ends but hey its the price you pay for healthy hair.
I just hope that I can retain my length, as I have said before its not the growth thats my problem its keeping what ive grown.
Oh and my creme of nature goods have officially been shipped out to me. yeah!!! ūüôā

Good news! I won Quel from Creme of Nature Giveaway. She had held a hairtreatment tips contest and I won, Woot. Its the first time I have ever won something in a contest (yes i know its sad, but its true) so I am very excited. I won a full size bottle of Creme of  Red Clover & Aloe shampoo for dry hair and scalp and a full size tube of Jojoba & Olive Oil Moisture-Active Deep Conditioning Treatment for Dehydrated Hair.

This was the tip that I gave:

“One deep condition that I like to do is a oil treatment, but I do it over night. It leaves my hair and scalp feeling nice. The last time I did it I used my version of Mo’s grow oil, it left my hair feeling so soft. I kept feeling it and wandering how come after a week or two my hair still felt nice and wasn’t dry.”


Thanks Quel mucho gracias! 

She is currently running another contest so check it out.
