Lately, I've been roller setting my hair in this half and half method and I like it a lot. Below you'll find a pictorial on how I set my hair. This method may or may not be easier than the traditional mohawk method. But if you're having issues with the mohawk method, I would definitely give this a try.

I had all these plans for how I was going to conquer postpartum shedding -- tea rinses (black and green), prenatal vitamins, low manipulation styles, no heat... nothing has worked. It's hard to not be worried about where my hair will be once this shedding finally levels off because my hair falls out all the time and everywhere. Most of the "research" I've done says that I just have to let it run its course, but I'm continuing to do all of the above (and thinking about adding garlic to my deep conditioner or hot oil treatment too) -- it certainly couldn't hurt.

the slackness that went on with my hair over the last few weeks of this relaxer stretch, everything went well. I did not do an official length check or flat iron with my hair, but if you watch the video, I do pull my hair down to show you where it is currently. An official length check will be coming at the end of the year, where I hope to be able to claim waist length hair.

There's no doubt that my priorities have shifted since having a tiny human to take care of. These past few weeks, I have not been following my current hair regimen. Instead of my typical, pre-poo, shampoo, deep condition routine, I've been haphazardly co-washing my hair when I could find the time and moisturizing when I could not. And as much as I want to believe that doing that was enough, it really hasn't been. My hair has been looking and feeling rough for a while now, lol. Once I realized that I had allowed a full month of this foolishness to go on, I became determined to find the time to do a full wash day.

If you have dark circles and apply concealer and/or corrector to address that issues, then I'm sure that you are all too familiar with the dreaded under eye creasing. That area of the eye (especially on me) has fine lines that makeup loves to settle into creating little streaks of concentrated makeup under the eye (un-affectionately referred to as 'creasing'). There are a boat load of products that are marketed and promise "no creasing." But the reality is that where there are fine lines and wrinkles creasing is just inevitable. Of course, you want to use products that minimize it as much as possible, but nothing lasts forever.

Caruso Steam Rollers for a few years now (see previous posts: here and here) and decided to film how I used these rollers on my hair. Steam Rollers are a great way to style your already straight hair without applying direct heat.

30 Days with Ceramides Challenge. I challenged myself to use ceramide containing products for the month of July. I had two wash days while on this challenge and below you'll find what I used as well as how it impacted my hair.
