I've been rocking with this weave for 9weeks.... I think I'm over it!
I still love the hair, and how it looks, and the accessibility of not having to do my hair BUT I miss my FRO y'all!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I got my February Curlbox last week and I can't even play in none of my stuff like I want to *pouts*
So the plan is to wear my hair another few days and then have it taken out this wknd.. I want to deep condition and scratch my scalp! Unless it snows or drops to 15 degrees this weave is coming out..
HAIR IN REVIEW...
I purchased my hair from samegirldifferenthair.com -- this was my very 1st time purchasing online and I will DEFINITELY be ordering from them again
I originally ordered 22' 24' 26' deep wave but my stylist cut it a lot shorter than expected sooooooooooooooooo the longest layer might be 22' long
I never went to get it blown out or straightened but I did put some spiral curls in it on my own
I co-washed at least once a week sometimes twice a week depending on how I felt.. I did not experience very much shedding.
This hair tangled up on me TWICE! BOTH times I went to bed with wet hair and nothing on my head -- totally my fault *shrugs*
For the most part, I wore this hair in its natural state.. The curl pattern matched my hair texture nicely -- I would love to find some hair that had more coil than wave but this hair type will definitely go into my rotation.
I am looking forward to seeing my hair again. I've been pulling at my tracks and its about an inch and a half of new growth! Not bad for 9weeks. I'm still trying to wear protective styles for the rest of the winter so after a good deep condition and a Lil TLC I'm tucking her away again.

Aztec Secret - Indian Healing Clay
$8 @ wholefoods
I finally stopped at wholefoods here in New York to pick this up one day after school. I decided to try it as a facial mask instead of on my hair because my weave is installed.
Facial Mask Mix:
Equal parts clay & apple cider vinegar
Mix until it has a smooth paste like consistency
DO NOT USE ANY METAL UTENSILS OR BOWL!!!!!
I place the clay on my face and let it harden up (imagine Queen Helene mint julep on steroids) you can feel your face pulsating. Like everything is being drawn out of your face with this mask..
I follow up with a hot towel and a splash of fresh lemon juice.
HAVE YOU NOTICED ANY CHANGES?????
I noticed much smaller pores even after the first use. It shrank up my 'time of the month' pimple immediately and it controls the overproduction of the natural sebum oil in my Tzone -AKA- I'm less shiny!
OTHER SUGGESTED USES:
I'm looking forward to using it weekly and seeing the long term benefits on my skin. After my take down of this weave I plan to do a hair mask with this clay as well jst as a special treatment for my hair.
