And threw on some random accessories and went on about my day...

Ok... SO I HATE HATE HATE MY NEW FLAT IRON....

Anyways...
Like I said last night...
Today was my wash day after taking out my Senegalese twists...
I had them in for approximately 6 weeks...
And my hair had grown about 3/4 of and inch in that time...
The kinks was poppin'...

Look..

I had redone the front a couple of times to keep them looking "fresh"-ish...


Yeah... So I decided to take them out on Monday...
which mean I wore my hair like this to work on Tuesday...

Ha! I know...
Crazy... but there is no shame in my game...
Me and my mother spent Tuesday night de-tangling and removing all the shed hair so that I could wash today...

I went through a lot of steps...
Last night after combing out all the excess hair I conditioned over night with Yes To Tomatoes Daily Moisturizing Conditioner...
I rinsed that out this morning and followed it by washing with Dr. Bronners All-In-One Lavender Shikakai Castile Soap...
I did a rinse using Dr. Bronner's Conditioning Rinse in Citrus...

Then I used Garnier Fructis 3-Minute Undo...
Rinsed and put in Smooth and Silky 60-Second Critical Repair Conditioning Treatment...
Finally did my tea rinse with ORS Replenishing Condish...

Yeah...
Too much...
I know..
I went overboard...

Anyways...Then I did a rough blow dry to about 80% dry using my fingers to comb...
I let my hair air-dry the rest of the way...
And then I used my crap-tastic new flatiron to straighten my hair...
I thought I hated it when I first got it...
But now I know I hate it...
I mean it does give your hair really silky and soft feeling...
And shine...can't forget about shine...
But for me... 
I just doesn't get it that straight...

I think I'm going to sanitize it and throw it into my upcoming contest and/or giveaway...

Anyways...
Here are pics...
And yet another length check...


And then my hair immediately started to frizz... 
So the length shot is crazy... and not quite as accurate as I'd like... but who cares...

I should have just used my old busted flat iron...

My ends look a little shot...
I don't think this is the case but we shall see soon enough...

I also went ahead a did the lines for goal purposes...

A little update...

I took out my senegalese twists on Monday...
I de-tangled today...and it was a mess!
Glad my mom could help...

Anyways...

I have a little....well a lot of Yes to Carrots Conditioner slathered on my head...
Then I wrapped my whole head with saran wrap...
I do all my washing and more conditioning tomorrow...
And I'll post pics...
I'll tell you this... if my ends don't look right...I will be getting a trim...or a CUT...
depending on how I feel...

So tomorrow I'll be washing with my castile soap...after I rinse out my conditioner...
Then I'll be doing a black tea rinse...Followed by more conditoner...
Rinse..I might do a little hot oil... Using EVOO and Grapeseed Oil...
Probably not...

Then a light protein...
And then I'll do a DC...with ORS Replenishing Condish...

Sounds like a lot... it is...

Off Day...

So  I'm off today...
I was going to do a couple of things like...
Play dress up and take pictures of it...
And do makeup...and take pictures...

The only thing I actually did was do one eye...and slap on some gloss...
But I do have some random pics from when I wen to the harbor...

I know I suck...
Here's the makeup...
It's based off this look I did a few years ago...
I did a tut for it too...it's not up yet...but you can check my YT for that later on...

~```~```~```~```~```~```~```~```~```~```~```~
there was this navy ship at the harbor and they were giving tours and such... 
So me and my friends took a tour...

Here is me with a random hard hat thing on...

And we found this duck who like sunflower seeds...
I hope he's ok...
I don't know the effect sunflower seeds have on ducks...

He actually cracked the shells under water and ate the seeds...

Any ways...
I went to the early service at church today...
I had to work after wards...so yeah...


So I wore this strapless maxi to church...
I put a little cardi on too...

I love this dress... especially when in natural light...the colors pop so much better...

Lol... I really don't care if ppl think I'm too big to rock a animal print dress...

Anyways I had fun...

Purple and Green... Oh So MEAN!

hello lovers...
So I was off today... 
So I recorded some videos... 
Which I'm too lazy to edit today... but whatever...

Anyways.
I did a little makeup... 
And here it is...

I used Electric by Ulta as the main purple color (inner and outer corner)... the green is Absinthe by Urban Decay (middle of lid)... The inner-inner corner has some Techno by Hard Candy...I have a little bit of Urban Decay's Perversion & Ben Nye's Amethyst in the outer crease...  The lower lash line is Nyx's Morocco and the highlight is my trusted Butterscotch by Hard Candy.
