It's My Hair TAG!

I did the "It's My Hair" TAG for my YouTube channel.  There aren't many hair TAGs out there so when I found this one I decided to do it.  But by the time I got through with it, I realized the questions are pretty similar to the 21 Hair Questions TAG I did in 2011.

The End of the Castor Oil Challenge.

I briefly mentioned my thoughts of the castor oil challenge on my relaxer update video and blog post, but I wanted to do an official end of challenge update.

Empties Report #4

We're getting down to the nitty gritty.  After this report, I'll probably only have one more to do before I reveal my current stash and staple hair products.  This "quarter" I went through six hair products.  Below you'll find out my final impressions.

Relaxer Update | April 2015

Last week I thought I was 11 weeks post relaxer when I relaxed my hair, but when I looked back at the calendar I realized I was way off.  I actually relaxed my hair at 14 weeks post relaxer, which partially explains why my new growth was so out of control.  I was so focused on the Castor Oil Challenge that I got my relaxer stretch count messed up.  Below you'll find the details on my most recent relaxer.

The Castor Oil Is Working on My Edges

There are just two weeks left in this 3 Month castor oil challenge.  I have been consistent with applying Jamaican Black Castor to my scalp twice a week and messaging it in afterwards.  Additionally, I'm adding 1-2 teaspoons of the castor oil to my weekly deep conditioning treatment.  By the time I was 8 weeks into the challenge I could see that my edges were growing back.  Below is a picture of my edges 8 weeks into the challenge.

Wash Day | Roller Set, Flat Iron, Curl.

I was so close to picking up CHI Infra Treatment on Thursday night.  I was browsing the beauty section at TJ Maxx when I saw that they had the liter size on clearance for $10!  I felt this instant compulsion to purchase it because of the massive savings that were available to me even though I'd never really heard much about this product.  After going back and forth with myself on the issue, I decided to leave it there.  Sigh...I didn't pick it up, but that protein conditioner would have been perfect for my last wash day because I ended up using a lot of heat on my hair.  I may or may not be making another trip to see if it's still there for $10.  If it is still there, I'm taking that as a sign that we were meant to be together... Below are the details on my wash day without the CHI Infra Treatment...

My Flexi Rod Set Lasted 5 Days!

Remember my flexi rod set from last week?  Well I wanted share how it held up in the following days.  Each night I would pineapple my hair to preserve the curls.  When the morning came I would essentially shake and go.  I did not moisturize or anything like that over the days because I wanted to minimize frizz.  Below you'll see how the set held up over 5 days.

Coconut Oil as a Daily Moisturizer = Brittle Hair?

Remember when I posted that I would be using Coconut Oil as my daily moisturizer?  Well, I heard your feedback loud and clear (on the blog and on instagram posts).  Coconut Oil hasn't worked well for many of you as a daily moisturizer.  Many of you explained that when using it that often (daily or close to it) it leads to dry brittle hair.  And instead of pushing full steam ahead with my plans because they seem to make perfect sense to me in my head (like I did after the warnings you gave me about using ORS Creamy Aloe Shampoo every week), I am heeding your warnings this time.  I appreciate you all for helping to steer me in the right direction -- towards my healthy hair goals.  I trust you, so I'm listening.

Style Trial | My First Flexi Rod Set

To scratch my itch for something new, I decided to channel that energy into trying CourtneyNaturalHair's No Heat Flexi Rod Set Tutorial (I bought some new goodies to complete the look :) ).  I liked her video because her end results were more like waves as opposed to spiral curls that I've seen with other flexi rod tutorials.  Since it was going to be my first real attempt at this, I took pictures and recorded the process for you all:
