Thanks Sakina.  Except for the color, it kind of reminds me of  the style I've seen you do but with 2 sticks that cross like an X.

Thanks Trisha Smiley

Well, I ordered these really pretty jeweled metal French twist holders.  I finally got them in the mail today and realized they're not going to be good for my hair.  The clamp isn't smooth which can cause snagging and probably breakage so I reluctantly have to get rid of them...they're soooo pretty...sigh.  Oh well, I have to do whats best for my hair right?  Did I mention how pretty they are? Cry

I saw that Bath and Body Works make a scented moisturizing shampoo and conditioner called Warm Vanilla Sugar.  I figured it would smell really good and decided to buy some online, but after getting out bid on eBay (by someone who for whatever reason decided to buy them for more than they are worth) I had to go to B&BW today to get some.  I'm glad I didn't win it on eBay because once I smelled it, I realized I didn't like it, but I did love their mango.  I bought some of that and will most likely try it the next time I wash but, I still want a vanilla scent.  Vanilla just seems more appropriate for the colder weather than mango.  

I even purchased 20 Strawberry scented candle tarts on eBay as well because I got them at a good price, but they're just so summery smelling.  I guess I need to pony up the moolah and get some season appropriate ones.

Well, I did my usual Sunday wash and deep condition.  I used my new Bath and Body Works mango shampoo and conditioner, it smells so good, the smell reminds me of Pop Rocks.  Anyway, the conditioner is great, it makes my hair really soft but I don't like the shampoo.  It's a moisturizing shampoo but it's not enough moisture for my dry hair type, my hair felt more like I'd used a clarifying shampoo.  So, I'll no longer use the shampoo but, I will continue to use the conditioner ( I just paused to sniff my hair again...hmmm!).

I also have to admit that I used my blow dryer too Sad  I just couldn't detangle without it.  I tried and tried thinking okay, maybe if I add serum I'll be able to get the comb through and that didn't work so I kept trying this and that to the point where it was just getting silly. Then finally I relented and got out my blow dryer, and just like that it was detangled in less than 10 minutes.  It seems weird but, I honestly believe it has something to do with the heat. I simply cannot get a comb through my hair when it's wet and cold.  I can't even do a cold rinse after conditioning because afterwards my hair just doesn't cooperate.  I don't understand why, but history has taught me that in order to detangle my hair, I have to either use a blow dryer or make sure my bathroom is sufficently warm.  Next time I'll take in my space heater and see what happens.

I just remembered that the last time I washed prior to this, I also did a hot oil treatment.  That could've had a hand in making my hair more managable post wash as well.  I think I'll get some more from Sally and see if that makes any difference.

Oh, and if anyone is interested in some Pantene Ice Shine shampoo and conditioner and the bottle of Bath and Body Works moisturizing mango shampoo let me know.  I've only used each one time and can mail the rest out to whoever may want it.Smiley

For the first time, I'm beginning to think that I may not reach my hair growth goal.  My hair has been shedding much more than normal lately.  I'm hoping that it's only the change in the weather but I don't know.Undecided  Fortunately my hair isn't looking thinner (yet), but it's definitely shedding a lot more. Sad


Humans are just like every other mammal out there - we go through seasonal shedding too!  I know you've got cats, so I'm sure you're dealing with the excess cat hair and wondering "Where does all this come from?  They should be bald by now!"   Grin

Right now I'm shedding like crazy - I feel like I'm in a competition with my cats about who can leave more hair about the house!

my hair has finally surpassed bra strap length.  It's not that much longer mind you, probably about a half an inch but it is clearly longer so of course, I'm very happy.

Thank's Trisha and a Yay Rah to you too for reaching BSL!!

Last night I decided to reward myself with some new hair toys.  I was looking around and decided to purchase a bun cover which I guess is more of an accessory than a toy.  Anyway, I've never used one before so I can't wait to try it out.  I ordered it on eBay so I don't have it yet but, it's crocheted with black metallic yarn.  I was hoping the metallic yarn would dress it up a bit, as I have a fear of looking like a lunch lady in it. Undecided  I'll take pics when it arrives.

Also, I'm considering a leather stick barret.  I want it to hold a bun as well but I'm having trouble deciding between a medium and a large.  I think the medium will be too small and the large will be too big so, maybe I'll have to hold off on the barret until my hair grows longer
