Note to Self…

…if you’re a napturalista, do NOT ever wait longer than two weeks to wash your hair. Not only will your hair be pissed off at your neglect but knotted beyond the usual level of knot tolerance. Luquisha had small knots. Large knots. Knots on top of fucking knots. What a pain in the fucking ass.

I started my hair around 20:15CT last Tuesday night which lemme just say I hate washing my hair during the week. It’s sooooo dern timing consuming as it is but it just seems to take up so much more time on a weekday. But regardless of the time, I neeeeeeeeeeeeded to wash Luquisha so bad. She felt so über nasty and grimy from all the product and sweat buildup. Ugh why did I wait three weeks to wash my damn hair?! Such a stupid idea!

I washed Luquisha with the SheaMoisture Jamaican Black Castor Oil Strengthening, Grow & Restore shampoo. I leave mixed feelings about this shampoo. It cleanses my hair well buuuuuuuuut it feels like stiff and rubbery when I rinse after an intense scratching session. I dunno. I need to figure out how to tweak it a little bit because it costs too damn much to not use the entire bottle. Maybe I’ll add some coconut or olive oil.

Speaking of olive oil, I used it for the first time well intensively on my hair last night. I mixed it with the the ACV rinse as well with the SheaMoisture Coconut & Hibiscus Curl & Style Milk and the Miss Jessie’s Leave In Condish. Oh man Luquisha was so easy to detangle with the olive oil. I definitely recommend adding olive oil to your regimen or even just when you’re detangling your hair. Of course, let me just say, it might not work the same on another naturalista’s hair. For me, being natural takes a lot of trial and error, start, stop and repeat. I’ve yet to find a regimen or method that Luquisha likes for more than four or five months. rotten needy heffa

Anyway… Luquisha is somewhat happy now. I woke up early Thursday morning to moisturize her before getting ready for work. Thank gawd Luquisha still likes everything coconut oil based cuz I’m not quite sure what I’d do without it. It’s like crack for the hair or some shit. I’m thinking about deep conditioning her triflin butt today! I need to cuz it’s a fucking minute but we’ll see how lazy I’m not feeling later. Don’t side eye me you understood exactly what I was saying.


Thanks for reading….

Nerdtastic, Write?

I am an aspiring writer trying to find my place in the world. Writing makes me happy, save lives much like coffee, and keeps me grounded. To honestly know me is to understand my way of thinking, my quirky, sarcastic side comments, and left uppercut verbal jabs and side-eye death stares. I’m simplistic but can often be very complex in nature. I love life to the absolute fullest, but I am human; therefore, I have more than my fair share of ups and downs. I am a giant kid, so being goofy comes naturally to me. I secretly strive to be the next Ernest Hemingway, J.K. Rowling, Zora Neale Hurston, or Shonda Rhimes. I openly and stupidly wear every bit of my heart on my sleeve and refuse to apologize for or minimize my true, unedited feelings.
