Wash Day:: Mini Twists Week 3

          Hair is such a big part of our being. We dye it, fry it, cut it, lock it, relax it, and even perm it. Of course we will still be us if we shave it all off, but our hair can say so much about who we are. My husband once told me that I am addicted to my hair. My response was, "really, you noticed that!" He went on to say that I am not even denying it. Why should I? He is right! I love touching my hair. My point is that, pampering your hair is part of pampering yourself. I love the smell of freshly washed hair. This is my third wash since I twisted my hair. It still looks good, but the twists have to go.


{1} I co-washed my hair with Alberto V05 and Tea Tree Oil again, but I promise that will change next wash day. I will try something new.

{2} I rinsed the shampoo out and applied the black tea straight to my scalp, followed by my Cantu Shea butter as a deep conditioner. I left it on for about 30 minutes.

{3} I rinsed the hair and let it air dry for almost an hour. 

{4} I love using Garnier Fructis Instantly Smooth as a leave-in conditioner because it smells so good.

{5} I oiled my scalp with ORS Carrot Oil after it was 100% dry. My hair loves it for some reason.

The Wash Day Experience
        After eliminating both shampoo and protein from my hair regimen, I can honestly say that my hair is softer and it absorbs moisture faster. It is definitely longer, too. Another thing I love about not using shampoo is that I don't have to prep my hair before washing it. I can just deep condition it after using the clarifying conditioner.  A hot oil treatment with pure coconut oil once or twice a month is on my to-do list, but I use the carrot oil on my scalp every other day. This oil/cream really brings health to my hair, and I love it.

My Fall Fashion Favorites

Fall Fashion Esentials
          Hello Darlings, I hope you had a super wonderful weekend. I finally got to see Twilight: Breaking Dawn part II on Saturday. That was the only kind of fun I had. It's been a while since I created a set. This one features a few things that I think are essential for the Fall season. My number one pick is a pair of leggings. I love having them in black or navy blue because of how easy it is to pair them with other colors. Boots and Flats are great replacements for my flip flops and open-toed shoes. The classic blazer jacket is a must, whether I want to throw it over a dress shirt for an interview or a little black dress for an office meeting. I love the versatility of the plain white Tee. The V neck is my favorite because I was blessed with a short neck. It can be worn under a cardigan or a denim jacket, depending on the occasion. The fall season always calls for a thick scarf and a hat to keep me warm.
         Fall is all about layering because it is cold in the morning, warm in the afternoon, and a little chilly at night. There is a time during the day when I have to take a few layers off. Having pieces that I can easily pair with other clothes that I have in my closet is very important.  They make it easy for me to  transition from Summer to Fall without having to buy new clothes.

What about you, what are your Fall fashion favorites?

Fitness Friday:: Chickpeas And Avocado Hummus Plus A Bag Of Chips

          Hi guys! When I saw miss Jackie's Chickpeas and Avocado Hummus recipe, I knew I had to try it.  Her hummus quickly became one of my favorites. It is flavorful and healthy. You don't have to worry about consuming extra calories. I eat it with my potato chips when I feel like I need a good snack. I also spread it on my bread when making a sandwich, instead of using mayonnaise. It can also be served as an appetizer along with Tortilla chips. I made my version of her recipe by using Cayenne pepper instead of Paprika, a pinch of garlic salt instead of raw garlic, and the yellow part of the Avocado instead of the whole thing. Mine came out very good. You can check out her recipe here if you would like to try it.

 Bon Appetit!

Zara Faux Leather Top Plus Leggings

            Hello Fashionistas! Fall is finally here. I am glad to be into my leggings again. No more short shorts, unless I am wearing them over my leggings. I love the comfort that comes with a good pair of leggings. The versatility is endless, too. Wearing this particular color is my way of saying hello to the fall season, my personal favorite. The last time I wore this Zara top was a year ago. You can read the post here. I could not get the top to cover my hips, and my boobs were gasping for air. I love the way it fits now, and I love wearing it with a lighter color. I also love the wrap-over details and the materials. Now let's see if I will be able to wear it again next year.


Wash day:: Mini Twists Week 2

                Hi guys! I am back with the hair again. It's been two weeks since I put the hair in mini twists.  I try to wash it at least once a week to avoid product buildup because I still use oil on my scalp while my hair is twisted. Washing the hair is also a good way to add moisture. Not washing your hair while wearing any kind of extensions can also cause dandruff and unnecessary shedding.

  1. I am so in love with my Alberto V05 Clarifying conditioner. I added a little bit of tea tree oil to it and washed my scalp very well. 
  2. It took me a long time to dry the hair again. I even thought about using a hair dryer, but NO HEAT came to mind and I gave up.
  3. I added extra virgin olive oil to my hair after it was completely dry. 
  4. The next day, I applied ORS Carrot oil to my scalp to minimize shedding. Dry scalp means excessive shedding where I come from.

           As you can see, my wash day was pretty simple. It does not take long to clean the scalp and  add a little moisture to the hair. I love simple wash days like this one. How was your wash day?
