I’m soooo excited…I could barely sleep last night!!! I’m on my way to St. Louis (my HOME!) for the first time since my wedding last August!!! Within the next 8 hours, I plan to have obtained a box of pork fried rice from Queens, or a slice of IMO’s pizza, or a White Castle w/cheese…maybe all of the above! My LOU curlies know what I’m talking about 😀

So of course I did my hair last night! On Saturday morning, I DT’ed with Aubrey Organics Honey Suckle Rose and Jessicurl Weekly Deep Treatment. I then applied my henna for an overnight treatment. I woke up on Sunday, rinsed and applied yet another DT! Tip: ALWAYS use honey in your henna mix. I was completely out, and didn’t have time to run to the store. The consistency is completely different without it. Honey is an essential ingredient in a smooth henna mix. It makes both application and rinsing much easier.

Here’s the kicker, to detangle before and after the henna, I used Kinky Curly Knot Today…all I can say is, WOW. I’m very impressed! It has the detangling power of conditioners that contain cones! I hate the price, but you gotta do what you gotta do. I left some in yesterday after rinsing my final DT, and applied a little DevaOne on top before twisting. I sealed the wet ends with shea. As I type, I’m sitting here with a head full of rollers, so I’ll post my results a bit later. My twists definitely feel soft though 😀

Anyone else on there way home for the holidays?! Where are you headed and how are you wearing your hair?!

Later Gators,
Nik
