Ok picture time, then I'll wrap this entry up.
A more visible waist (I don't like how my hair looks in it though, its right before washing with some unintentional braid&bun waves).
I'm really happy with my hair right now. My routine is keeping my length and scalp happy, I am loving my length and thickness right now. And I am still growing out my henna. It's much easier to grow out henna (for me anyway) when my scalp is happy, because henna is a quick fix to an unhappy scalp. Since I've been very happy with my routine and recall loving the CO last time I did (for 6-8 months straight), I think I should just call it quits on the all natural hair wash method and just do what makes my hair and scalp happy.
I've recently bought new Neeli, Vitamin E Oil , Coconut Oil and Castor Oil because my old ones went bad (except for the vitamin E oil that just ran out, I should and did buy smaller versions of the other ones), really I only have to shop for hair oils once a year. I had the toughest time finding the vitamin E oil and a new comb. I broke my last comb in my backpack because I did't use it and forgot about it.
It was only difficult to find a comb, because I wanted one that is hair friendly (seamless, wide-toothed, non-plastic) WITH a handle. Almost all the hair combs I found had no handle. And the ones that did have a handle were mostly made of wood, my hair hates wooden toys/combs, it breaks at the very sight of it lol (wood is not slippery enough for me). At one point I gave up and decided to look for a goody (brand) plastic one because they are actually seamless and none of the stores around where I lived sold ANY of them, even their website has a very small selection out of which none have one row of teeth and a handle. At last I did find a good one online.
This is my new comb:
I bought it from amazon and let me tell you: it is HUGE, I was not expecting what I got lol. When they say 9" x 3.5" they are not joking, this is the real deal. I love it, though it was a bit of a challenge to get used to its size. I was surprised to see that for the first couple of times it was actually a bit difficult to comb my hair. I guess finger combing did not take out all the tangles, so I started using a comb on a regular again (once every two-three days). The comb story had a happy ending lol.
That's all for now. Happy May everyone! :)
