So a lot in my life has been happening. I have recently had some health issue that are still on going, My job give an insane amount of stress, started a company with a friend of mine, and the boyfriend will be moving in this month. So in short version my life is really turned upside down an I have no energy for any of it. I’m slowly trying to get my house in order.. Organized and minimized. With three attached children that’s hard to do. One room at a time… One room at a time. I plan on documenting my progress but its going to be a hard reality of how bad I have let things pile up. My recent clean out was my closet one full garbage bag of bags and shoes and one full of straight garbage. Not even done yet. My life is just so crazy busy. Time to make my self a schedule checklist.. Maybe that will help. Ummm I have come across some websites that are on just organizing your house maybe I need to research. Today project to do is laundry and action plan for this little house on the corner.
It’s been one full week using the Kinky Curly, I have to say I think I’m in love. Now if I only can figure the right amount for my hair then it will be a dream. It does seem this will be a little pricey considering a quarter of its already gone but we shall see after one full month. The price of beauty!
I didn’t follow the direction the first day… I’m a rule breaker! Hahaha at least I keep telling myself that. The direction stated dripping wet hair brush product through with comb. Of course I paraphrased all that. Come on I have three children to get out of the house in the morning I don’t have time to sit there for dripping wet hair to dry…. SERIOUSLY! To be honest I was concern about the combing the product through… All I kept picturing was greasy strings of hair. So I chucked their directions out the window and did it my own way.
Here are my first day results.
Loved everything about these curls.
Now I did try the directions on the container and let’s just say I won’t be doing that again… Greasy stringy is exactly what I got.
Completely different curls…. I like the soft big curls. How I got those: I brushed my hair the way I always do… Then towel dry so it’s not dripping wet. Split in six section, from the root of the hair down to the ends massage the ick into my hair. Did this my entire head then flipped and added a little more where I felt I missed, fluffed my hair having my hair forward did not touch until dry… That is the most important part.
I as none of you know have naturally mind of its own beautiful curly hair. If anyone one knows finding a product that fits your hair type is hard… Do I use a brush vs fingers… Wash daily or every other day?. The list really goes on and on. Most of the time my hair get done in the morning and mid day it’s up in what I’ve been calling a Nena-Bun but now everyone calls a messy bun.. Which seems to be in these days. I have done some research and found many costly products.. But let’s get real, I’m a single mom wanting glamour hair on a shoe string budget.
I found Curl Box which is a monthly subscription very much like Birch Box or Glam Bag for markup but this one is for hair. I haven’t yet subscribed so I couldn’t comment if this was a good deal or not, I did however ask for a 3 month subscription for Christmas. So I will keep you posted, I think I’m on Santa good list this year……well maybe!
During my research I found this stuff called Kinky Curly I’ve wanted to try and it had great reviews, but like everything else it wasn’t at my local drug store or Sally’s beauty supply. I was not about to order and pay shipping.. I know I sound cheap, but at $16.99 plus shipping for me it wasn’t worth it. 😦 I told myself I would wait until I was in a town that had it in a store I was in to purchase… So basically if I came across it.
This weekend I was once again in the battle of which product to buy that was for normal straight to wavy hair. Standing in the isle over looking every product I haven’t tried yet, I pick two cheap mousses, YES! I said it MOUSSES! I know I know. What I’m I thinking… Why would I want crunch dry hair. That’s all I know.
I go to the next isle only to see in a very small section of a few products I’ve been wanting to try but to cheap to order had have mailed. I couldn’t believe this my chance has finally came, I chug my two bottle of mousse out of the basket and grab the Kinky Curly and head for the door before I change my mind at spending $16.99 for this small jar of ick. Now mind you as I was looking at all these products the poor boyfriend is standing behind me BLOWING my cellphone up say PICK ONE ALREADY! Hahahaha this is another reason he sends me shopping on my own.
Today was my first day I will post pics tomorrow of two different ways of how I applied.
Have so much to write and note enough time. Maybe today will be slow in the cube and I can get some writing done. Yea right. Until later
So mandatory over time which means a ten hour day on the launch of the iPhone 5 to be in store at 8 am.. Are they crazy… I think so. As a single mom of three I have to do what I have to do… Go to sleep by 1am wake up at 5am and work from 8 am to 7 pm taking calls are stupid people ignorant people. PLEASE IF YOUR GOING TO CALL YOUR CELL PHONE COMPANY TOMORROE PLEASE BE PATIENT AND UNDERSTANDING WE ARE DOING THE BEST WE CAN.
I’m going to try and get back into blogging and hope for the best. Wish me luck.
