Curly girls! I need your advice!

Image

Alright, Naturals.

I have had a partial sew in installed in this “Beautiful mane” of mine for about three weeks now. So far, its been great. Its long, flowy, I have been whipping my hair back and forth in peoples faces and switching, and so far its great. BUT. I do have one thing to say: I am getting tired of it. So tired of it, yall.

My scalp itches, it feels like I am wearing a hat, and quite frankly… I miss my kinks and coils. Frizziness, dryness, and all. 😦

The dilemma I have is this: I wanted a weave for a trip I took to Florida. So, I got my weave. I did it, I got it, I loved it, I scratched my itch, and now I want it O-U-T. But naturals let me tell you… Yall KNOW weave is not cheap! Part of me really wants to get my return on investment.

So I come to you for advice! Waving my white flag!

What should I do? Should I keep it in for at LEAST another month, or should I kiss this hat goodbye?

Help a sistah’ out. Post your comments and share your thoughts below. Thanks guys!

Always remember: You are Fearfully, Wonderfully and “Beautifully mane.”

My wash day!

Happy Saturday, Naturals!

So, I’m about to head out on this Saturday night, but first things first. I had to do my hair. 🙂 Hashtag, Wash Day!

I do currently have a partial sew in in my hair, as a protective style as I like to refer to it as. With a partial sew in, I try to wash and blow dry my hair at least once a week.

So I washed my hair with the Aphogee Shampoo for Damaged hair, and conditioned it with Keratin 2 minute Reconstructor.Like I have stated in previous blogs, I do have heat damage that I am trying to grow out, and these products work PERFECTLY for my 4A type hair.

Love these products. Now, I have to be honest with you, Naturals. After I washed my hair today, I did notice that I have a tad bit of heat damage on my real hair thats been left out to cover my tracks. No bueno. Now, Ive only been using a flat iron on the real part of my hair once a week on wash days, on 320 degrees. Yet, my curl pattern does appear to be looser.

Can you see the looser curl pattern and texture? Man, I miss my curls. I don’t know if Im going to be able to have this weave on my head for too much longer.

Anywhoo, I made sure to dry my hair with a T- shirt as opposed to a towel ( highly recommended as well; when you towel dry your hair, your hair is more prone to break off because of the cotton) and prepped my hair for the heat with the Garnier Fructis Style Flat Iron Protector Straightening mist, infused with Argan Oil. Highly recommended for the Naturals who want to try the straight look every once in a while!

One thats done, its time for the blow drying process. With my sew in installed, this process doesn’t take long. The only tip I would give is to MAKE SURE your scalp is fully dry, especially with a sew in. If the braids underneath are not completely dry, not only will that affect the over look and style of your weave, but it could cause MILDEW. Gross.

Alright, Naturals and bloggers! Here is the final look.

Shout out to my crown – area growth! 3 months ago, My crown – area used to stretch only to the middle of my forehead. Nice to see some growth.

My new statement piece… Thoughts?

So I just recently purchased a bold, statement piece necklace that I fell in LOVE with passing by a vendor table at my church this sunday. I don’t normally wear statement pieces — Thought I would give this look a try. Share your thoughts & comments below!
