What Are Your Hair Plans...

for the weekend?

I'm doing a henna treatment as we speak! My first one since October. I plan to DT and style tomorrow (a twist-out on wet hair, then a dry braid-out). Yesterday, I cut off a half an inch-- my ends were super raggedy, probably due to neglect. Sad.

In 2010 I'm gonna be so on it... no more tomfoolery! I've really been playing my hair to the left for the past 6 or so months and I'm definitely seeing the effects. I hope to henna monthly, and DT bi-weekly in the new year.

Next week, I will finally reveal my new routine. It's working well... saving me time and effort. Plus, the results are ridiculously predictable, and my hair is voluminous each time without much coaxing. It's very similar to Amel's routine... she's actually my inspiration. I just swapped the coconut oil out for shea butter. Check it out and let me know what you think! I'm braiding dry y'all!!!!


Later Gators,
Nik

im going to stop being a punk and put some protein in my hair. Since I had a bad experience w/ it during my transition I've been scared to do it since, and plant sources aren't doing it (wheat, soy, avocado, coconut milk...) I think I'll try Aphoghee 2 Minute Reconstructor since it's lighter. My hair needs it

I just ordered Henna from Butters-N-Bars (Thanks Nikki!) so I plan on trying that to see the results. I have been using the neutral Cassia (Rainbow from Whole Foods) and I love what it did to my hair so I wanted to try actual Henna.

Hopefully by next year I can have a steady regime with my hair. I have a THICK TWA and it is so difficult to find products to keep it mositurized especially with the cold weather.

After two weeks of wearing a twist out, Sunday will be my baking soda/acv rinse day and then working on some finger coils that I hope will last for at least two weeks or maybe a week in a half, already have my conditioner ready. It's cold here and this will keep me from having to go out with damp hair and it will be easier to keep moisturized.

washing this KCCC out my hair and then...who knows, wish I had a hat to wear because I no clue what style I want to try.

Moni said...

My hair plans this weekend are a big fat NOTHING! My hair is currently in a braided bun and will stay that way until finals end on Wednesday. Only one more semester until I'm Moni, JD!

Ms. V said...

I'm going to DT with some Yes To Carrots Conditioning Mud mixed with some olive oil and any other goodness that I find! Then, I'll probably just braid it up and let it be (I'm doing a protective style challenge).

NADA. I work on the weekends so I usually wash my hair on Thursdays and twist for the weekend. Here in NYC it is cold and in the winter I wear my hair in twist so that I can put on my silk scarf and hat unless I have somewhere special to go. Nikki, I was just wondering how exactly do you set your ends on rollers because I noticed that your end are always spiraled and appear as if its not twisted all the way down to the ends. Thanks in advance

I`ve hennaed yesterday night and I am DTing(AOHSR mixed with Lustrasilk Shea Cholesterol)just in this moment.
I`ll try a wet braid out (setting with khadi amla hair oil , garnier sleek and shine and shea butter for the ends) because I have to establish protective styles asap, my ends are tangling and breaking off. I suppose it has to do with my frequent(daily) wash n`go`s and the the cold german winter... :-(
I really hope this can save me from the wash n`go`s, especially because I do shift work and are often tired these days....

I have been keeping my hair wrapped in silk scarves and wearing cute knit hats over it. It has been really cold here in Minneapolis so I want to keep my hair protected as much as possible.
My plan for this winter is, wash, condition, moisturize with my homemade hair butter blend, braid in small sections, and wrap it up. I Henna once to twice a month, and my next trim will be in February or March. Hopefully this goes well.

Well I have been transitioning for 7 months and I decided to do the big chop yesterday!!! I was so so scared,at first but I just love it, it's so freeing and liberating. I really hated dealing with the two textures. I love it so much. Yay!!! lol Sooooo, thats my hair plans for the weekend lol.

I am going to cleanse my hair with my twists in. This is my second week with them, and I feel I must. I will also deep condition it with a new product.

JustTrena said...

Sunday evening I plan to deep condition with a mixture of EVOO, AO Honeysuckle Rose conditioner, TJ Nourish spa, and coconut oil. Afterwards, I MAY try braiding instead of twisting it for a braid-out, for a change! *Maybe I'll try dry braiding it tonight to give it a test run before trying it the night before work! :)

Namun said...

I have no idea what I'm going to do with my hair this weekend, but I need to do something. I'm due for a deep condtion so I will do that tomorrow afternoon. I'll use Jane Carter's nurtrient replenishing conditioner. I also need to think about how to protect my ends. They are feeling dry and brittle, due to neglect.

Maria said...

I made my own deep conditioner and rollerset my hair. I took out my curlers and didn't use the flatiron, just brushed it back and put it in a bun. Today I just put some shea butter on my ends and Afroveda Totally Twisted Almond Butter on the front to smooth my hair down.

The Star said...

Hot oil treatment with olive oil, then washed with Lush cinnamon and peppermint solid shampoo bar, conditioned with Aussie moist deeep which made detangling a breeze!

Ms. Silky Coils said...

As my hair gets longer, I am becoming more daring with styling. For my international trip in January (uber excited by the way), I plan to straighten my hair for the trip...first time since going completely natural....a little nervous, but I digress.

I also want to try to do some bantu knots, but still am not sure how to actually do this....
