I’m Going Home!!!

I'm Going Home!!!

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

    Miss Nikki,
    OMG…white castle? pork fried rice?
    Will your hair be happy with the choices you made? LOL

    Have a slice of Imo’s for me too! One of the things I miss most about Missouri (Springfield for me)
    Btw I love your review on the KCKT. That stuff is amazing and I kick myself often for putting up for swap earlier this year. I may have to buy another bottle, especially for when I cassia (even though I have a million other leave in’s and conditioners)

    honey is great in henna. but if you don’t have it on hand, i’ve used olive oil, vit. E oil, or avocado oil in it’s place. the slippage when it comes to rinsing out is great. when i first started using henna 15 years ago, (i only used water and lemon. that was a mess. oh and now, instead of straight up water, i use whatever coffee is left in the coffeemaker.)

    i do use the honey in my apple cider tea rinse after i henna.

    This Lou curly knows exactly how you feel! When I’m away at school, those Imo and white castle cravings come a little too often!
    Welcome back to STL!

    Nik,

    Not going home for the holidays, but I did want to come in and give a big ‘ole AMEN to your assessment of Knot Today! *shouts, claps hands, does little dance* That stuff is the best. I gave it 5 out of 5 in my little homemade product review system — I’m recording these online in a new blog I just started yesterday @ http://dluvlylox.blogspot.com so I won’t forget what’s what 8 yrs down the road when I have Rapunzel length natural curls…ciao!

    This post has hurt my feelings. I am from St. Louis too and I was suppose to leave to go HOME on Saturday but I am stuck. 🙁 I am soooo sad. I hope you have some fun and save some fried rice for me for whenever I finally make it! 🙂
