Holy Moly Hair Emergency

With all that I'm going through right now, I decided I wanted to try something a little different, look different. So, last week when I co-washed my hair, I blew if out. And it looked cool. Then I used my flat iron to run it through my hair, to help control my hair for the updo styles and chunky cornrow style I'd planned for the week.

Well, that only lasted for a couple days. (I refused to even take a photo of the very cushy bird's nest my hair had become as a result of the conditions). I even oiled my scalped and mixed and apply some shea butter mixture to my hair, hoping for something. Anything. I just wanted to make it to Sunday. AND I'd been keeping my hair in my fav Tracee Ellis Ross cornrow/ 2-strand around the head style (I don't have the fortitude at this time to find out the name of the style.  This:
Anyway, it wasn't happening anymore (oh, it looked cute for MAYBE 3 days). All I know is as I undid my twisted cornrow style this morning and a couple of strands were in my fingers instead of attached my scalp, I literally said "Oh hell no! I like my hair. I miss my hair. Where's the spray bottle???"  So After I walked my son to his summer camp, I came home, dropped my keys, and headed straight to the bathroom. Pulled out 8 hair clamps to section all of the massive hair on my head, refilled the spray bottle, pulled out some Creme of Nature Argan Oil Hair Reconstructor (yes, I used that sucka as a leave in because I felt my stuff was damaged!!! Am I overreacting a bit, sure, maybe, but it is what it is!).

I proceeded to spray a section, apply a very small (dime size) amount of the hair reconstructor, and my curls started immediately springing back. I damn near danced, in my bathroom, when I saw this. Then I added my trusty Shea Moisture Coconut and Hibiscus Curl Smoothy. I went through each section, and instead of tension blow drying (oh no, we are staying away from any heat for am minute) and pulled it up into a wannabe bun. I added a little QP Glaze to my edges, and tied a silk headband around my hair. Here is what I 'm rocking today (minus the scarf):

 (And yes, I am smiling, for real.) Whew!
