Hola Chicas,

I just returned from my daily walk… I had to focus less on my pace and timing, and more on trying not to catch fire. Note to self: if it’s after 10am… hit the treadmill.

I did a twist-out two days ago:

Day 1

Today (after releasing it from my workout pony)–Day 2:

That’s after two days of intense heat and humidity, two 3 mile walks, and two nights of rough sleeping. I used Yes to Cucumbers as a leave-in, Aveda Defining Whip to style, and Dabur Vatika Oil to seal the ends. I’ve since applied a tiny amount of the Vatika oil every morning and night– it’s supposed to strengthen your hair and prevent breakage and splitting. As I said before, it’s still too early for me to share any results. However, the lovely ladies of Longhaircommunity.com and Longhaircareforum.com have had great results with this oil (long, strong, healthy hair). Here are a few details:

Product Description:Dabur Vatika Coconut Oil is a premium Coconut Hair Oil enriched with henna, amla, lemon and six other trusted herbs. Vatika’s special formula ensures deeper oil penetration to give your hair and scalp complete nourishment for problem free, healthy hair. Henna along with other herbs coat your hair and protects it from oxidation. Amla strengthens the roots of your hair to help maintain their health and natural thickness. Lemon has an astringent action which controls the flow of sebum.

Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Neem Oil, Brahmi, Amla Extracts, Bahera and Harar, Kapur Kachri,
Henna, Milk(Lac), Rosemary Oil, Lemon Oil, TBHQ, fRAGRANCE

Sorry for the digression. Anyway, I’m not doing my hair again until Sunday or Monday evening. I’ll probably try a braid-out using the same product combo.

What about you? What are you doing to your curls this weekend?
