School Is Out..Hair is In baby!!

So as you probably guessed from the title, I am officially on summer break!! yaayy!!

This means I'm in Jamaica!!

I wanted to stock up on hair products before I left NY but I couldn't because of the weight restrictions.

I still wanted to tell you about the products I've been loving lately.

I am in love with Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream, Fantasia Hair Polisher Daily Hair Treatment and my new Annie comb.

Garnier Fructis Sleek and Shine Intensely Smooth Leave-In Conditioning Cream

I used this when I was in New York (it was still cold) and I have been putting it to use while in Jamaica (its extremely hot). I am completely nuts for this leave-in. I even use it as a moisturizer and its great. I have frizzy hair when I air dry, but this seems to solve the problems, and it smells great!

Fantasia Hair Polisher Daily Hair Treatment

I don't even know if I should be using this serum to seal my hair after moisturizing, but I do. It contributes to the smoothness immensely and the comb glides through smoothly. Plus it has a nice scent and it leaves your hair shiny.

Annie Jumbo Comb

This comb is so bomb, I don't know why I was still using my other wid-toothed comb. Little to no hair comes out. This may also be attributed to my slowed down shedding and breakage since the ending of the semester. Maybe I was just stressed but I love the comb.

Do you guys like these products?

Thank you for sticking out the semester with me :)

Giving my hair some Lovin'

So I finally got serious with my hair after weeks of saying I'm gonna get back on the "hair growth and retention" road.

Last week I did an egg and olive oil overnight treatment. I put lime juice on my scalp to ease the dry and itchy scalp issues I've been having. I kept this on my hair for the night and half of the next day.

I didn't do a  moisturizing deep condition because I was lazy, so I thought my hair would be hard. It definitely wasn't, I know my hair loves protein so no real surprise there that I didn't need the moisture treatment.

So I just added my leave-in and left it to air dry.

I then clipped like a half inch off my hair, it took loads of courage to do this but my splits were crazy. They had to go.

So now I'm split end free and my hair is strong. yaay!!

This week I decided to go back to my crazy growth aids. I went back to the cayenne pepper & castor oil mix.

 I massaged that onto my scalp and then sprayed water on the hair itself and coated it with olive oil. I put a plastic cap and a winter beanie on my head and am now going to sleep. 

Thank God for Good Friday, its a well deserved rest and meditation day.

So, after resting, I'll co-wash and then deep condition my hair. I really want to do a flexi-rod set but I'm afraid it won't come out right.

Well we'll see how it goes.

Thanks so much for reading,
