So Thankful

Hello everyone! I just wanted to take the time to share some wonderful things that have taken place in my life.  Maybe this will encourage someone else to be patient and keep the faith.  One of my favorite scriptures is Phil. 4:19`"But my God shall supply all your need according to his riches in glory by Christ Jesus."  I've been holding on to this inspirational thought for the last two years regarding a lot of things in my life.  Well, this Tuesday I finally got a job teaching 2 classes at a community college in my area. I've been applying this entire time over and over, but it just seemed like I couldn't get my foot in the door. I'm so happy and grateful to God for this opportunity and for teaching me that no matter what's going on~Keep trusting him!!!

Now the second big thing to me....yesterday the President, yes, President Barak Obama came to my hometown and my alma mater, University of Central Missouri.  I got the chance of a lifetime to hear him speak and it was an amazing event.  I've seen the speeches on television, but it was nothing to compared to physically being there.  I'm grateful for that opportunity as well.

I know my blog focuses on hair related things, but I just wanted to share some things with you all. My schedule is about to get busy, but I plan to always take time out to maintain my blog. I will have some updates coming up soon. 

Have a blessed day my friends!!!

(Updated) Wash Day

Hello everyone~I hope you all had a wonderful 4th of July!

Today was wash day for me and I had one of the best wash day's ever. It's been a long time since I've actually enjoyed dealing with my hair.  I'm 13 weeks post and my new growth is kicking in, however, I was trying to decide if I wanted to end my stretch due to some shedding and breakage I had.  After washing my hair, I decided not to texlax and to proceed with my routine.

13 weeks post
Anyway, I used my Silk Elements moisturizing shampoo, then deep conditioned with Silk Elements Megasilk Olive moisturizing treatment (I'll review this later) for about 45 minutes.  After I washed the conditioner out, I decided to try something new for air drying. I watched some tutorials from a LaToya Jones (ToyaJtv). I sprayed my hair with Chi Keratin Mist, applied Hawaiian Silky 14 n 1 for my leave-in, and sealed with grapeseed oil.  I used my Motions Foaming wrap and put it on my hair to help with drying flat and straight, then put my satin scarf on and let it dry.  I must say that I was quite pleased with the results. 

That's all for blessed!!!
