Still Rocking my Wash N Go! Come On Spring!

Good Morning Yal,

I am still rocking my Wash N Go and going to attempt to get several days out of it.   Today is day 1.
The routine was a quick cowash in the shower, a dime size amount of Aussie, about 2 quarter size of Oyin's Hair Dew, and about a total of a Quarter Size of Ecco yellow gel.  I use the gel very sparingly and really just for hold a bit of frizz control for the crown area.  Once almost dry which doesnt take very long because of the density of my hair (1 hour almost completely dry), I added a bit of coconut oil.  Next time I think I will do this while my hair is really wet and after applying the gel.   I use the shake and prayer method to clump my spirals.  Depending on how much prayer method I use the spirals become even more coily and tight.  This makes for great styling when dry and gives an opportunity to have more than one day hair with my wash n go.  I usually throw the front back because I donot like the hair hanging in my face for work... maybe in the evening when going out to bring the Sexy Back...LOL.

I usually pick at the roots a bit to give more height to the hair and that works great.  My hair definitely frizzes more around the temple area so I will have to really concentrate on working the gel in that area for smoothness of the strand.  This style gets wilder and wilder and looks more and more Free to me.  On the weekends I really let it fly big but for now, work work work.

I have been thinking about my health and weight a bit more and I am at the age where alot of things start popping up.  For the past month 1/2 I have been experiencing intermittent cramping on my left side.
Also a few other issues even when "Mary" is not visiting.  I will definitely be making a womens doctor visit as well as my general practitioner next week.   I noticed that it is starting to get light outside slightly before 6am and soon hopefully will be getting up to 40 degrees so that I can begin my "Exercise -Brisk Walking Regimen".  This regimen consists of walking at least 3 miles in the morning eventually getting up to 7-8 miles before work.  I sometimes include interval jogging / walking in there for variety and it helps to tone and promotes weight loss.  It helps my booty Pop in my jeans too...LMAO.

I have to start concentrating on me again.  Since my daughter is off to school and I have a long distance friendship, I need to start promoting my lifestyle of being fit, eating healthy and most of all Spiritual.  Get back in to reading my Bible and listening to Devotionals.  There are so many things that I would like to get out on this journal and I believe I will in my next few posts.  I am holding alot inside these days but I have got to concentrate on my health, finances and spirituality (don't really like that term).  I want to look great and feel great inside and out and be an inspiration in all areas for others.

Have a great day!

  2. Wow, you are a busy woman! Love the hair and my wash and go is really different from yours. I may wanna try some of those products just to see how they work for me.

    Get that cramping checked out, my dear and good luck on the eating better.


  3. Thanks Sabrina P. and Steve Finnell I will check out your blog.

    Sabrina, sometimes I do wear it down towards my face. But my wng's I like it for the free curl it provides for doing other styles too. I like the wildness of the natural curl when pulled and stood on end.

  4. I have added myself to follow your blog. You are more than welcome to visit my blog and become a follower also

  5. Beautiful post. I love your three prong approach to life. Finances, health and your vertical connections. (I, too, hate the same term.)

    Cramping? That doesn't sound good unless it related to . Unfortunately, as we age, things will creak, pop, crack and ouch. I love your early morning walk routine. Maybe (I said maybe!) I'll try something similar on my end of the world. Unfortunately, I get tired just thinking about it. LOL.

    Nice post.
