One thing about my hair is that it loves to be washed once a week. When this does not happen, she gets angry and causes a bit of discomfort. I knew that this week, my wash day would have to wait till Thursday, so I was ready for all that nonsense she pulls.
Just on schedule, on Day 6, the itchiness started. Now I am also trying to train my hair to go at least 2 weeks before washing. Why? In June, I planning on getting twists done with Marley hair and since I want it to last for at most a month, I can't be washing my hair every week.
When the itchiness started, I got my tea tree oil, put two drops on a cotton swap and applied it to the areas that was itchy; the front part of my hair. Also, I notice a little flakiness and dry scalp. The tea tree oil got rid of that. YEAH!
Next was the shine. I have had grapeseed oil in my stash for a while. I saw a YouTube video earlier in the week, where the lady used this oil for shine, I decided to try it on Lil Sis. I used LOC method to moisturize her hair. (Water, Grapeseed Oil, SheaMoisture Yucca & Baobab Thickening Growth Milk)
It made her hair shiny and it was silky to the touch. I decided to try it on my hair and got the same results. DOUBLE YEAH!!

Will you be one of them? Watch the video to get the details about this giveaway and find out what I think about the New Goin' Natural Morargan Gold Coconut Elixir Sulfate Free Shampoo
Last night, I decided to do Bantu Knots using just oil. My hair was previously in flat twist out, and I did not see any need in putting in moisturizer. So, smart little me, decided to just put some oil and cross my fingers that my hair will feel soft the next day.
Well, it did feel soft! It always does when I use the Goin' Natural Morargan Gold Moroccan Oil. However, the ends were DRY. Ouch! I remembered something that Naptural85 said in her latest video regarding Pros and Cons of Long Natural Hair. She mentioned that "as your hair gets longer, it takes a longer time for the natural oils on your scalp to travel to the ends of your hair" , which is the oldest part of your hair. I feel that this is one of the issue. However, I should have sealed in the moisture with either a thicker oil like Jamaican Black Castor Oil, or my Whipped Shea Butter.
The camera does not show the size.. *FROWN!!!
One little trick I learnt!
Did you know that when you take a picture of yourself in the mirror you appear smaller than you are? LOL! I'm not a big person, but I always notice this. Cool, huh!
This is the picture of the mirror-me. I did this so that you can see how big my hair is getting. LOL.
Now, this is the non-mirror-me. My hair appears smaller. Oh-well...
I wanted to put a flower in my hair, but couldn't find one that matched, so, I "borrowed" the girls' little head band.. Nearly broke it on my BIG HEAD. LOL.
