June GOC Update: Shellie (#22)


Hope everyone is staying cool this summer. I had a wonderful time in my husband’s birthplace of Jamaica this past week.

Nothing has really changed. I co-wash every Friday and henna one weekend out of the month (these grays are like “what’s up?”). I truly love Aussie Moist conditioner and when I do henna, for extra added moisture, I sit under my heat cap with Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle for about 5 minutes. I’m not able to rock a WnG as before because my curls are really stretched out since I’m a henna head. So, I had to make a choice, gray or henna. You know who won :), so I continue to do my twist outs.

I wanted to give an update at end of June, because I needed to see my edges and if any improvement had taken place. So here goes. My before and after hairline pics …

For my edges, I’ve continued to use the Jamaica Black Castor Oil. I kind of see a difference, but I don’t want to get all excited and then it looks the same. So, I’ll let you guys be the judge of that. I usuall keep the front of my hair in a twist so that I don’t have to look at my edges too often.

With the heat as it is (unbearable), I’m twisting my hair with Ouidad Curl Quencher and Alma and Olive Heavy Cream. For 3 days, I don’t have to add any moisture to my hair, which I do love. I’m trying to keep things simple, because I’ve noticed that, when I try to do too much, baby girl (my hair) is not very happy.

Health & Fitness
I wasn’t able to exercise as often as before since I was in a car accident where someone hit me in the back; but I’m doing better now. So much so, I was able to run the Peachtree Road Race 10K (English, 6 miles) on July 4th. Even though I was in the last wave (Y), I was able to finish at a good time, being my first time and first 10k (what was I thinking?). I’m very proud of myself. Come October, I’ll be running a 5K (English, 3 miles). If training for marathons will keep me exercising, then I’m all in.
