May/June GOC Update: Gina (#40)


Welp, Kenzi (my hair ) and I have been at odds for the last 2 months. Everything went downhill once I took out the two strand twists that I had done. I kept them in for 3 weeks. Did a wash and deep condition and there was some shedding. But that was to be expected.

Now when it continued every single day, I freaked out. All of a sudden I have single strand knots, which I dont recall ever having. So, I concluded that it was time for the overdue TRIM. In the meantime I started using Aubrey Organic GPB (thanks Shelli!).

So, my regimen switched up a bit. I wash once a week, rather than every other week. I deep condition with the Aubrey GPB prior to shampooing. Then, I condition with Aussie Moist (love it). I’ve seen a bit of improvement, but we shall see. I’ll keep you all updated with the TRIM and shedding.

Health & Fitness
I have been maintaining my weight of 130 lbs. I went down 5 lbs and was very uncomfortable with how it looked on me. So now I think I will work on toning and that’s all!

Pray for me ladies! Smooches & God Bless!

Wonder Curl Braid-Out Results


Here are my braid-out results from the braid set of Sunday night. ¬†As I indicated yesterday, I used Wonder Curl Get Slick Hair Smoothie and Butter Than Love Pudding to set the braids. My hair still didn’t dry overnight, so I sat under the dryer for another 20-30 minutes or so. That mostly dried the braids and I released them with a gifted Original Moxie Hair Bling (High Shine Pomade). It was my first time using this product and it reminded me a lot of Oyin Burnt Sugar Pomade, except that it had a smoother consistency. Too early to give a full review yet though.

All of these pics are of my hair after work.

Pretty decent. I definitely prefer braid outs when I can let my hair air dry and set for a couple of days. I think that I get better results that way. Guess I need to make sure I wash my hair before Sunday night then!

Hmmmm … it’s been a long time since I did a TnC, so I might switch it up and do that this upcoming weekend.
