I'M BACCKKK!!!!!
Well I know that I have been MIA for a real long time. I took an unexpected hiatus. While I've been gone, I have been doing some soul searching and a lot of thinking as well as educating myself. I have decided to be more conscious about the health of my hair and to focus on growing long healthy hair. Last time I was on I was really considering locking my hair. I went and saw a loctician and had a consultation. When I left, I had concluded that right now is not the time to loc my hair (maybe later in life). I've been researching what I need to do to grow my hair. It's actually very simple. So in the next few weeks, I will be spring cleaning (getting rid of all my unwanted products). Focusing on my staple products...I will no longer be a Product Junkie....lol! My main focus will be learning what is the right protein /moisture ratio for my hair. Researching and learning the best protective & stylish hairstyles. I've been natural for almost 5 years...yes I said 5 years. My hair has grown significantly within that time, however my hair could be longer and healthier. Therefore this will be my focus. I have not decided if I am going to put a strong emphasis on goal lengths, however my main goal with be health & retaining length.
I'm just so happy to be back & I'll post some updates real soon!

Ok...so my cam had died, but I got it fixed...now I cannot find my usb cable. I have tons of pics to add so I'll update ASAP. On a side note...I've been doing great with my prtective styling & just within a week or so I've noticed a drastic difference :-). Also, I have been feeding my PJism, but I think I have finally found the best concoction for my hair...so excited! Pics soon......
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
What I wanna try at some point in time in the near future:
BANANA BUTTER

• 7oz Shea butter (Unrefined, straight from Africa)

• 4oz Aloe Vera Gelly (Clear, Fruit of the Earth brand from Target-I used this because it already has preservatives in it)

• 3oz Coconut Oil (this gives it a solid pomade texture)

• 2oz oil of your choice (I'm sure any oil will do but I used Banana flavored oil = Canola oil + banana flavoring)

•OPTIONAL: Drops of your fave EOs if you don’t use a strong flavor oil

First, I melted the Shea butter in a glass bowl set in boiling water. While that was melting I softened the coconut oil in the mic (not all the way to liquid) then I mixed it in a glass bowl with the Aloe gel and Banana oil with a wire wisk. When the Shea was fully melted I poured it in the Aloe/oil mix and broke out the cake mixer. I beat it on medium speed for about two minutes. Then I poured it into an empty plastic container that has an air tight lid. It didn’t solidify overnight so I put it in the fridge for a coupla hours then set it out to get to room temp.

This stuff mixed perftectly into a soft pomadey type butter (it looks sorta like dark yellow butter) and it has a delicious banana scent! It seems like it should be greasy at first touch, but it's actually very light, probably because I didn’t use much heavy oils-It literally melts right into my skin and hair. UPD:****I tried & I love it!*****
