Check out, New Oils For My Hair - NaturalMe4C
Here are the oils I will be incorporating in my regimen along with reasons why I'm using them:
Orange Oil - fragrance (nothing much here! :D)
Rosemary Oil - stimulates scalp, potential growth aid
Vitamin E Oil (T-50 Tocopherol) - antioxidant that helps prolong life of products (I use this for my flaxseed gel)
Jamaican Black Castor Oil/ Castor oil - potential aid in thickening the hair, detoxifies scalp, softens hair
Coconut Oil - penetrates hair shaft, aids in detangling, prevents protein loss, helps prevent hair from swelling too much during wash sessions. This is important to me since I'm still trying to recover from incomplete splits from the Tangle Tamer Max.
Grapeseed Oil - Sealing moisture (I'm using the LOCO method and will be using this oil for my last "O" )
Avocado Oil (mentioned in a previous video) - I'm now using this as my first "O" in the LOCO method. It penetrates hair,contains lots of vitamins, softens, natural sun screen, and adds shine.
Olive Oil (mentioned in previous videos) - I was using this oil as my first "O" but I am enjoying the avocado oil much more! Shocking! This oil penetrates hair, adds shine, softens, fights frizz.
Peppermint Oil (mentioned in a previous video) - Helps calm itchy scalp, stimulates blood flow, smells awesome!
Ty Bake's A Cake!
Hey! Ty wanted to try his hand at baking a cake for my birthday without any help! I let him do his thing and it was a very memorable moment that's for sure lol. The cake turned out awesome and tasted amazing. We ended up eating almost half the first night! SMH
Kriss & Ty - Ty Bakes A Cake! (Family Fun) - NaturalMe4C to see how he did in the kitchen!
Umm the last picture, is of the piece of cake Ty ended up giving me lol. He wanted to be sweet and cut a piece for me and ended up dropping it! Of course, it was buh-bye chocolate icing after that! :D
I love and am so grateful for my family!
Flaxseed Gel First Impression
Check out, Flaxseed Gel First Impression - NaturalMe4C
Hey! I finally got around to making up some flaxseed gel for the first time! (Long overdue lol!) I was surprised at how easy it was to make. It only took about 10 minutes or so and it was done! I boiled 2 cups of water and used 4 tablespoons of flaxseeds to make the gel. I'm definitely going to make up some more of this because so far my hair likes it and it works awesome for both Gabe and Mike's hair.

'Lil Bit Of Shopping :)
Hey! Today I did a little shopping and I ended up picking up the As I Am coconut Cowash Cleansing Conditioner to see how it compares to my favorite Eden Body Works Coconut Shea Cleansing Cowash. This product has great ingredients and many great reviews so I thought it would be worth a try. We'll see! How do you like this product?
Also, I picked up Maybelline Fit Me pressed powder in 330, to see how it works on my skin. I still wear my beloved Revlon Colorstay foundation 99 percent of the time, but I want to see if I can get comfortable with a lighter coverage since my skin has improved a ton from my regimen. I have a couple other powders that I'm playing with as well. (Revlon Nearly Naked in Medium Deep and Revlon Colorstay in Medium Deep)
I picked up a couple large applicator bottles to use for the cowash conditioners because the jars the are in are not practical lol. The Large bottles have a large opening so it will be a lot easier to pour the product into the bottle. I bought a smaller bottle for my new batch of oils I'll be mixing up. I won't be using that small nozzle though lol. I have a Roots Only comb top that I'm going to put on that. I also picked up my 3rd jar of Eden Body Works Coconut Shea Cleansing Cowash because it was on sale for 2 bucks off and I still LOVE that stuff! It's still No.1 to clean my fro!
Fussin' In The Car!
Check out, Kriss & Ty - Fussin' In The Car! - Vlog
Good morning! Today we decided to share a vlog from my birthday last weekend! I turned 29! (OMG!!!) While we were waiting to pick up Gabe from school we started chatting away like always. :) I ended up giving Micah a few Starburst to keep him quiet while we waited and he of course dropped one! Ty then started fussing about how the boys always mess up the cars with their snacks lol. (Not including himself lol!)
That day, we also headed out for some barbecue for dinner. Two words, Famous Dave's! YUM!!!
Summer Wrap Up :)
Summer Wrap Up (Struggles, Styles, Incomplete splits, Detangling, New cut? ) - NaturalMe4C
This summer was definitely a test! Needless to say, I'm glad that it's about over...hopefully my hair will start acting normal again. In todays video post, I share a recap of how things went over the summer. Some of the things I talked about were:
* Frizzy crazy failed twistouts
* Successful wash & gos
* Detangling and Search and Destroy Missions
* Updating my progress dealing with the incomplete splits that recently occurred from the Tangle Tamer
* "Ah ha" realization that I shouldn't have given up on gel
* Thoughts of cutting a little more length of my hair
I just chat it up ya'll lol!
How This Twistout Held Up :)
PROS For My Fro
* Removes shed hair well
* Detangles well
CONS For My Fro
* Caused MAJOR incomplete splits on some of my hair strands!
* Pricey $9.99 (SALLY'S)
* Handle is not useful at all... it is way too short to help out any.
* Some bristles are not completely smooth
(I should have know this would be trouble!!!)
* Brush is VERY slippery when detangling with product on your hands and hair
