More updates

I feel so weird in not updating my blog. My computer has been out of whack cause my laptop charger is not working but LETS GET BACK TO BASICS.

Okay first off, I put braid extensions in my hair to keep it in a protective style and I noticed that my hair does better in extensions. Also I'm going forward with my slogan- Starting a New Trend in 2010 and I wanted to start the year with a new style without compromising the health of my hair.

Before the braids: I washed and Deep Conditioned my hair with Egg, v05 conditioner and olive oil. I left it in my hair for about 30 mins. I realized that it makes a difference in my hair when it comes to shedding.This amount of shedding is from having twisties in my hair for 3 weeks-post graduation pictures.

How my hair looks right before I braided my hair:

While I was installing braids, I decided to wash the hair with Apple Cider Vinegar (ACV) and water because it was suggested through aka NP. and what I found out was shocking. There is soo much white stuff in the hair- it came out gooey like. I always used to wonder why my hair used to always itch with braids. It took three washes for me to remove almost most of the white stuff.

Then I blowed dried it (3 packs of hair)

Here are the results both me and my friend did it and it only cost me $5-hair. I LOVE DIY:
