i decided to play with my concoctions…
so i bought some Lo.ng Aid. Activator gel… mmmm i now remember why i don’t use it. it so sticky once it drys and leaves this nasty feeling to you hair. i swear to Go.d i feel like i have a jheri curl! it gathers dirt too… which means washing more… i don’t know if the co~wash will do it… SO… i think i will mix it with something else… i was thinking along the lines of IC and aloe vera gel… just so it won’t be so jheri curlish! we shall see! here are pictures of what it looked like last night after it dried and then this morning after i spritzed it with my glycerin mixture and my leave homemade leave in. i wrote down what i put in my mixtures this time !! yay! oh and i dyed it with a semi permanent darkest brown.
Glyerin Spray~ water, glycerin, vitamin E, sweet almond oil, and castor oil
Leave~in ~ Orga.nic Coc.nut Milk conditioner & water
both in a spray bottle. love both so far
her is my oldest curly top (Slim). she is rockin a coil out… too cute. i think i will do the the coil twist all the way down next time. i only did the top this time. and she was in coils (protective style) for 2 weeks. i don’t really do to much to her hair. she pretty much stays in protective styles. sometimes i let it breathe but not more than 2 days. but she doesn’t stay in them long because it is a fight to get her to keep her hair tied up at night. she did have a satin pillow but left that at her dads so i am waitin for him to send it back.
i finished MizzPrizzy’s furniture and i put it back together… well i’m not totally finished. i have to pick out a some fabric that will be her curtains and whatever it is will be the back wall on the dollhouse bookcase.
Slim got some furniture(used… hey i don’t mind! i love refurbishing old stuff!) i’m trying to decide what color i will make them… i was thinking brown then painting/stenciling some butterflies on them in purple. her room is going to be a very light lavender, her bed spread is purple, her bed is brown… so i might do that or vice verse.
that is all for now!
