New Glasses and Back to My Twists! ... Baltimore Natural Hair Expo.

 Good Morning/Afternoon,

I am sitting here wondering where Oh where is Spring!  It is March 29th and I came to work in mid 20's weather in Maryland.  WTH. 

Lately I have been kind of wearing my curls via a Wet and Go and I have been doing this for about the entire month of March.  I decided yesterday, since I picked up two new pairs of glasses that I was going to to put some twists back in my hair.  With the cold still hanging around, I didnt want to take chances with my ends.  I am anxious for the warm weather "Hair-wise Only".  I am about 15 pounds over my normal weight and I have got to get this weight off.   I have an outdoors walking regimen that I have not been able to execute.  So I am going to have to commit to something else until the weather breaks.

I have been seeing where some of my shed strands are growing back in.  At first I thought maybe breakage but then I thought about it.  You hair is never going to be the same length because the shed strands have to take time to grow.  This process may also help my hair to slightly thicken as well.

This past weekend I went to the Baltimore Natural Hair Expo on Sunday and really had a great time.   I made a very small haul of:  Zuresh Full Body Cleanser (Absolutely Wonderful...see 2 pairs of hand made earrings, a new Loc Soc, some Fragance Body Butters,and a Wooden  Soap Dish for my Natural Chagrin Soaps..

There were so many lovely ladies with dreads, twists, tuck n rolls, twist outs, coilouts, blowouts, twa's etc.  It is always so wonderful to be among people who look like you and have many of the same interests.  There were so many wonderfully talented folks that made jewelry, clothing, handbags, butters, soaps and natural products.  There were vendors on Natural Health/Hair/Finance etc.  Loved it All... Just need a little bigger place to hold it and get a few Food Vendors cause a chick was starving!   Looking at some of those women made me want to continue my journey with even more dedication to Body and Health as well.   I am going to start really trying to make more of these shows at least in driving distance.

Well that is pretty much all for right now but I will be working with these twists for a minute.  I used Shea Moisture Curl Enhancing Smoothie to twist on dry hair and Coconut Oil and Aloe Vera Gel to finish and curl /coil my twists.  Satin Scarf and Satin Pillowcase to hold the style.
