Hair Update #4

Hey all! As you know, I’ve been a bit challenged with keeping my hair in its natural state, as I said in one of my previous hair updates. Check them out here #1, #2, #3.

I love my curls, my hair density is very thick and my strands though fine are very unruly. I’m very prone to frizzing and many times because of failed braid-outs and twist-outs I just tuck my hair back into a hair tie or a headband. It’s a very boring look for me, and whenever I leave my hair open, I usually get comments from my family about how untidy it looks, usually my parents. It’s rather frustrating especially since I am trying something I’ve never tried before with the small amount of products that are available to me.

Since 2012 has started I did a texlax to hopefully lighten my texture, which I talk about in my first texlax update. I still had my curls but some how the hair did not feel as heavy and compact. My braid-outs and such came out with more success however, it still looked somewhat unruly. Maybe I'm just lazy...

I don’t know what it is, but no matter what I do, gel or whatever, my natural or texlax hair NEVER stays in a tidy state. And I’m not just saying this because my parents complain a lot about it, but I genuinely feel like it is too much of a messy look for me. I don’t like many natural styles on me, I just find many atrocious, it looks as if I haven’t combed my hair because of my texture. Although I love finding the random curls in my hair or getting great definition after a  twist-out, sadly it’s not enough to make me want to stay in the natural community.

Let’s face it, the au naturel look is not for everyone, and as long as I know I was able to embrace my curls and struggle through with them for this long, I am happy that I tried. It happened by accident that I stumbled across the natural scene and became natural for about a year, and it was an interesting journey. I’ve had tremendous hair growth (despite my hair hardly ever showing it), and I got to enjoy the life of being kinky curly. I learned that my hair adores water and moisture in general, while it would shrink to 50% or more of its length after drying, along with a number of other useful things.

In my texlax updates #2 & #3, I mentioned wanting back some of the versatility I had with my texturised hair. So I may actually be returning to something which was not only more convenient for me at this point in my life, but also offered options which I preferred more. We’ll see how it goes by Wednesday. I should have some pictures or even video.

I did enjoy my natural journey, and I’d advise anyone to at least try it because you learn not only about your hair, but about yourself also. I learnt that I have a fixation for neat tidy hair at all times haha. The knowledge of ingredients and products to use, will go along with me as I change pace into a different journey.

Clinique Dramatically different or the same?

A few months ago, November 2011 to be exact, I purchased the Clinique Dramatically Different Moisturising Gel. Usually this would be over $40BDS for the small (50mL) tube, but on Duty-free Day, it was about $24BDS for this size. So I decided to pick it up to try out instead of going back to my Garnier moisturiser which had a similar price.

Getting in the Groove

Hey all! Finally my exams are over and I'm going to be getting back into the groove of things. YouTube and Blogging. 
I have a few ideas for new videos, not all related to beauty, but they'll be interesting I promise. I also have been saying I will have my 200 subscriber contest for some time and I am going to hope I have the chance to film it later this month, so keep your eyes peeled for that one!

In regards to upcoming posts, I have a review coming up on a moisturiser I purchased some time ago by Clinique and I may try to do some nail posts. We'll see how that goes, as I get really lazy with my nails haha.

In case you might not have realised one of the new items in the sidebar... I finally made a facebook like page! There's not much on it yet, butiIt should have updates from this blog as well as my latest videos from Youtube as well as some posts on my personal life or tidbits I thought I'd share with you all. I hope you check it out and like the page!

Thanks for all your support as always!
