Wash Day | short term PS

Wash Day16 weeks postHappy Friday!

I decided to get a short term protective style which I am planning to keep for 2 weeks. I knew I was going to have a busy week and my hair was the last thing I wanted to worry about. Also wearing hair out + busy = hair neglect for me, so I wanted to stop this crazy cycle this time around. Continue reading


Wash Day | Mix Masala DC

Hey everyone, happy Monday ๐Ÿ™‚

Thisย wash day was about a week and a half after my last one; I had been wigging and wearing hats in between so there had been zero manipulation to my hair.

Wash Day | Weave takedown

I took down my weave this past weekend and gave my hair a much needed wash. After the horrendous experience I had the last time I took down a weave, I knew I had to make some changes this time around. On Friday night, I was lucky enough to have someone to help me with the removal of the weave – and my helper was super gentle, so that process was seamless. However, I did have parts of my hair that were intertwined with the fake hair that I had to gently separate.ย  Continue reading
