MLK Day Fun and Third Day Hair


See … what had happened was … LOL! I’ve been a little MIA on the hair posts front because I was on vacation from Saturday through Wednesday. Also, my hair was pretty much the same! The TnC held up really well from Saturday through Monday and I didn’t do much to it either. I put it in a high, pineapple ponytail using a Goody Ouchless elastic headband wrapped twice at night and wore a satin bonnet. Of course, I also travelled with my satin pillowcase and used that too ;). When I worked out, I wore the same pinapple with the Dri Fit headband. In the morning, I released the ponytail and used a little Wonder Curl Butter Than Love on my edges and smoothed down the length with some EVOO mixed with JBCO.

Monday … pre-emergency run to Benetton’s 50% off storewide sale for a sweater, hat and mittens! Brrrrr!

On Tuesday, it was starting to look a little wild, so I put it in a messy bun using Goody Spin Pins. And by messy, I don’t mean the bun, I mean the edges! Woof! I had noooo gel! LOL! So, I tried to use a headband to get it to lay down a little. It pseudo worked, but not really (no pics).

So, here are a few pictures of the MLK Jr. Memorial that we visited on Monday. It was very nice and there were a decent amount of people, but it wasn’t crazy. I would love to go back when the cherry blossoms are blooming or on a nice balmy, summer day!

  1. Your hair always looks cute and your skin is flawless. Thanks for sharing the pics of the MLK Jr memorial, God willing one day I’ll see it in person.


    • Thanks for the kind words ladies! I was really happy that I got a chance to see the Memorial and can’t wait to go back when it’s warmer to spend some time in that whole plaza!

      Miche’al … are you kidding?!?! It was HORRENDOUS!!! LOL! But, as nightmarish as the 20 hour process was to remove it, my hair doesn’t seem to have sustained any/much damage:). It actually does look and feel great! I’m thinking I may not need to deep condition as often as I have been as my shedding and breakage seem almost non-existent this week, yet my hair feels soft and nice! I’m thinking I may experiment with shorter bi-weekly (once every two weeks) DCs for the next couple of months and see what happens!
