I am...

in a protective style I hope to keep it in for a couple of weeks.  I washed my hair with Chagrin Valley's Ayurvedic Herb Shampoo Bar pure sweetness and deep conditioned with Darcy Botanicals Deep Conditioning Mask and sat under my hair steamer (thanks to the ladies @ nappturality) and then blow dried my hair on low for more length.  Before I blow dried I sprayed my hair with heat protection and biosilk.  Here are pics of my blow dried hair.

I was very upset to find little knots in the nape region of my hair as I blow dried so I just trimmed as I went.  So because I wanted some moisture and some hold I made my own concotion with Karen's Body Beautiful Hair Butter in Chamomile Sage and Garnier Fructis Soft curling cream and twisted my hair.  Here are the pics of my hair twisted.

It took me 4.5 hours to twist but that includes stopping in the middel to eat.  So like I said above I hope to keep these in at least three weeks if not two because lately I have been a weekly hair styler.

I have...

broken my vow to not buy anymore hair products because of the Black Friday sales. I swiped some Darcy's Botanicals, who can pass up her goodies? Well I bought from Darcy's Botanicals: the Cocoa Bean Oil, Avocado and Wild Plum Twisting Cream, Eucalyptus Mint Scalp Conditioning Butter, Organic Coconut and Aloe Moisture Pudding, Organic Coconut and Aloe Moisture Pudding (which is a gift for my auntie) and Herbal Tea Leave-In Conditioning Spritz. Also partook in Brown Butter Beauty and bought the Sweet Milk Detangling Cream Leave in Conditioner and Shea Mint Moisturizing Shampoo with 25% off who can resist, I know I can't. I also bought from Oyinhandmade because I have am in love with the Honeywash so I got a 16oz. Also one of may favs Anita Grant, I got Vanilla and Sandalwood oil, Cafe Latte, and Sapote and Coconut Pomade.  I didn't do too much damage but I stayed in the house and shopped safe for Black Friday but my DH went out and braved the crazy shoppers and made it home safe. So now I will make a vow to only buy out of necessity and try not to joy shop until my one year nappiversy which is in June.

I am...

in love with Gassner Custom soap's Black Beauty Facial Soap located here.  It is on sale now for only $5.00, I use it daily with my Zaja Naturals Fitoderm Squalane and my skin is smooth and clear. 

Here is what the soap looks like:

I am

tired of my hair.  Now don't get me wrong I love being nautral but I go through phases of being tired of it.  Even when I was relaxed I would get tired of my hair and either get it cut or put in braids.  Since I am now natural I am going to try some protective styles like small twists to begin with and then at the end of December I will put in some kinky twist with human hair.

Here is what my hair looks like now, my signature style is a twistout.

I am...

so grateful.  For the things God is doing for my son.  He is so intelligent.  He has to have a muscle biopsy because the doctors are still trying to get a diagnose, so I discussed with him what the doctors want to do and proceeded to ask him if he thought we should do the biopsy and he shook his head yes.  Now this might seem minute to many of you but my son is 5 years old, has a developmental delay and does not speak.  He spent much of his young life being tested by different doctors.  We have remained in the dark until recently when a specialist said I think it is "X" and my husband and I was a little wary because we had decided no more test for my son because the doctors were just doing them in blindness, but we decided to let them test once again to find if it was indeed what they thought it was.  We still have yet to get the muscle biopsy done but my son is my little hero because he is being tested for both him and his little sister who is believed to have the same disorder.  Moral: Never disregard a child's intelligence or knowledge of what is going on in their surrondings.
