    After spraying my hair and scalp with my fenugreek tea rinse, I gelled my hair with Wetline Xtreme gel and seal it all in with Mielle Organics Pomegranate and Honey Curling Custard.

    This curling custard is the magic bullet for my hair right now. My bun is still soft and shiny from this morning. I will continue to seal in all my buns and or wash and goes with this custard. I absolutely love it.

    Today I gave myself a mini-trim of about 1/4". I was super pleased that the bottom 2/3 of my hair was in superb condition. They actually looked like they had just been cut, which I did at the beginning of the year. The top portion was in more need of a trim. And I think more than that, a shaping. So I'm going to sit on that for a while and maybe watch some youtube videos on the DIY Deva Curl techniques.

    EndsApril15th 2019.jpg

    This is a picture of my hair ends for April 15th, 2019. I have been wearing a baggie since Sept/Oct 2018. But on the weekends, when I re-do my braids I leave them out one day as a 'treat'.

    My ends don't tangle, even when they curl up. I try to keep them stretched during the week, though. Shea butter and my Ends Routine with castor oil continue to work for me.

    I've been doing search and destroys and keeping my ends oiled but I am looking forward to dusting my ends this weekend. Then I will keep pampering them as much as possible.

    I've been doing well not snip snipping every two minutes. I haven't reached for my scissors since my last trim. Wearing my hair up an out of the way is definitely helping.

    My ends are lubricated with my shea mix, and feel good.

    HOPS

    Are you seeing a difference with your ends since they've been protected in the bun?

    Used some of my diy Fenugreeek oil on scalp and I used up a bottle of IN Aloe & Hibiscus Leave-in tonight as my cream moisturizer for tonight.

    No backups left of the latter and probably not a repurchase either. I liked it but don't actually NEED it.

    This afternoon I made some herbal tea rinse tonight with HOPS, black tea and brahmi powder. This I will be pouring on my hair while in the shower.

    I also made some Fenugreek/AVJ tea rinse to spray my scalp and hair with for strength and moisture through the week.
