September is coming!
I have been a wash-n-going fool this summer. Mostly that and top-Buffs™ (top-knots) and high buns or puffs with bangs. I am still in love with Kiss My Face Upper Management Gel (I recently went HAM on Vitacost and got 5 bottles on sale... smh). I use that and cold pressed castor oil. I have been throwing a little shea butter in the mix with my conditioner in the shower, and though my hair is responding well, my skin is not, so I'll have to stop that. Maybe I'll switch to grapeseed or more castor oil. I like the feel of that final rinse when there is some oil to prevent it from rinsing totally "clean." i don't like to leave any conditioner in though, it seems to make my hair dull.
Anywhoo- here are some picts of my most recent and fresh wash and goes, most of which have popped up on my Instagram (@niathebee) over the weeks.
Me and my mom on her recent visit to DC :-)
In the sun. Still loving my color!
Me and Jemima. Yes you see her twist out yet again! My wash and go is gathered to the side in back with a generous side bang left out in front.
And here is a shot of my other homegirl's hair after I braided it up for her. It's braided up in cornrows to a semi mohawk in back and its in singles in the front. If only I could sit and do my own hair... But at least my braiding skills have not languished too much over the years!!
