It's My Hair!!! Tag

So I found this tag over at fancy Flair Lady, and I decided to do it just for the heck of it. Hope you enjoy reading it as much as I enjoyed doing it :)

1. Why did you start your hair journey?
     I started on my hair journey because I had seen results from healthy hair practices. In my junior year in university, I had bleached my hair and reserached ways to keep it healthy. That's when I discovered the whole hair journey idea. I actually started my hair journey in 2012, when I cut off all my processed hair after severe breakage

2. How long have you been on your hair journey?
It's been 3 years now (May 2012)

3. Are you natural, relaxed or transitioning?
I am texlaxed

4. What is your length right now?
In between shoulder and arm pit length

5. What is your goal length?
I'm going for terminal :)

6. What is your hair texture?
I am a mix of type 3c and all the type 4s

7. Health or Length?
Right now my health is decent so I go for length. But if my hair health is bad, health first

8. If you could only live with one hair product what would it be?
Conditioner. Lots and lots of conditioner

9. What's the worst product you've ever used?
The Beautiful textures DC. It did absolutely nothing for my hair

10. What is your "go to" hair style?
Buns. And wigs

11. Are you a product junkie?
Yes I am.

12. How often do you trim your hair?
On a need to basis. If my hair has splits I trim. If it doesn't, I leave it alone

13. How often do you use heat?
Once in a very blue moon. My hair doesn't like heat much

14. Do you take hair supplements?
I take a daily multivitamin

15. Favorite oil?
Castor oil.

16. Who is your hair crush?
Soooo many. PrettyWitty, Jen (Just Grow Already), Curly Eva to mention a few

17. How long does it take you on a wash day?
I normally DC overnight, so my actual wash day will last for 30 minutes if I am bunning. If I am wigging it, it will take 2 hours

18. Worst thing that has happened to your hair?
Heat. I had really bad split ends from heat use end of last year, and I ended up cutting a lot of my hair. I went from BSB to barely APL. Then I lost more length again because of over stretching my natural hair

19. Do you dye your hair? If so, what color?
Nope. i will stick to the relaxer cream only

20. Who do you tag?
Everyone who feels like doing the tag :)

Wash Day Saga - Wigs, wigs, wigs

Last week I was just too darn lazy to post about my same old wash day.  But this weekend, my mama came back from Tanzania with my HG deep conditioners, and I felt excited about washing my hair again.
The #WashDayExperience
Here's what happened....

1. Overnight DC using Dabur Vatika Naturals Deep Conditioning for Dry, Dull and Lifeless hair. This conditioner is just amazing. It has slip and is cheap (my mom bought 500ml for $5)
Meet my boo

2. I rinsed out the conditioner the following morning, and followed up with a shampoo using ORS Creamy Aloe shampoo.

3. After rinsing out the  shampoo, I wrapped my hair in a t-shirt to absorb the excess moisture.

4. I sealed my hair with castor oil, and did a damp bun, as I had to go run errands.

5. That night I finally sat down and detangled. I decided to do box braids again, and wig for the rest of the month. So, I'm giving my hair and myself a break. This will hopefully stop me from doing length checks everyday.

I am still continuing with my sulfur oil massages and GHE. I will also have to get serious about inversion this month.

So, how was your wash day?

What's In My Bag Tag

Thanks so much to Sandra over at Naija Girl Next Door  for tagging me. It's been a while since the tag, but I am ready to show you what's in my bag.

My camera is not the best in the world so I will describe what's in my bag...

1. My tablet. I never leave home without my iPad. It has my eboks, music, and I can keep up with my social life wherever.

2. Eyedrops. Its winter (very cold and dry) and I am wearing contact lenses. Gotta keep my eyes hydrated and sparkling

3. Lip balm (one with SPF 50 and one without SPF). I love the SPF one even if my lips turn white, and I look starved :)

4. Gum. I am a gum addict and I need to chew on something constantly

5. Tampon. Just in case

6. Sweet. Randomly at the bottom of my bag.

7. Earphones. For music on the go

8. USB cable. for charging my phone at the office.

9. Hello Kitty coin pouch with my coins and IDs and what not

10. Keys. House keys, office keys and some homeless keys I adopted.

11. Book. I am currently reading African holocaust which is about the Ugandan Martyrs. It's a fascinating bit of African history.

Missing in the picture are my two phones.

I am not tagging this tag but if you want to do it, go ahead and then point me to your post. I would love to read your posts :)
