Pixie Dislikes 2012

I have two products that I gave the old college try, last month.  Neither of them worked for me!

1.  GHD Thermal Protector for Normal/Fine Hair

First off, I don’t have Normal or Fine Hair!  But this product, which I got free from Sephora, made my hair hard and dry.  It has alcohol as the 2nd ingredient so that should have been a clue.  It smells of alcohol and feels like hair spritz.  I can’t use this on my hair!!

 

2.  Ultra Sheen Supreme Super Smooth & Hold Flat Iron Spray

Some one on Long Hair Care Forum gave this code for a freebie, I said what the hey, its free right?  Well once again, it didn’t work for my hair.  It had the same effect as the GHD, alcohol, dry, hard hair.

If you would like to try them, subscribe, and leave a comment.  The first person to do so, will have them mailed to their address.  It’s worth a try, they may work for you!

 

 

Tuesday, Shoe Day: Hot Suede

I absolutely love suede shoes.  No matter the style or the season I’m wearing them.

Today’s choice:

Hot Pink Suede pumps from Baker’s.  Gotta love them.  What do you think?

Back Again.

This time for good.  Update:  I’ve been growing my hair out for about a year now, and have been seeing great results.  I’ll post my regimen later.  I also got highlights in July and those  have grown out nicely.  I’m experiencing my first “setback” in a while,  as I’m hanging some breakage in my sensitive area, my hairline!  I bought some new products yesterday.

I say new but two of them I started my hair journey with many years ago. 

image

ORS Replenishing CON and Silicon Mix(Dominican).  I love the smell of both and they both provide what I need moisture and shine(Silicon Mix) and light protein(ORS).  I also bought another Dominican product for additional protein(my stylist recommended protein).  Hadn’t tried this one but I have it in my hair now.

I’ll review in the coming days.

It’s funny that I started my journey in 2006 with some of these and I’m full circle back at them.   I’m hoping they may work as I have more hair than ive had in over 4 years?

I am 12 weeks post relaxer and will be 15 weeks before I get a touch up.   I’ll be protective styling.  Today it will be french braids.   These edges tho!

Breakfast Review

After running a 5k earlier this month me and a friend, and my kid, had an awesome breakfast.  We are at Cafe Brazil in Dallas’ Deep Ellyn neighborhood.  Food and atmosphere was great.  I had pancrepes and for 7.99 it was way too much food. 

If you are in Dallas, stop by one of their locations to experience the yumminess!

DIY Clip In Extensions

My friends daughter did clip in extensions that she made.  After seeing her results I figured I could do the same.  I watched a few videos on YouTube like the one here:

Afterwards I followed the steps and made my own.  I washed.and.conditioned my hair.  I used these products as leave ins:

Elasta  QP’s leave in moisturizing.spray, Chi Keratin Mist, and Redken Smooth Down Heat Glide(heat protectant).

Next, I part my hair and clip in my pieces.  The end result:

Getting a Bob…

So my hair appointment will be on Thursday.  If you have followed my inconsistent posts, my goal was to grow out my pixie cut.  I was hoping to be at full bob by Jan 2013.  I’ll be getting my bob on Thursday!!!  Can’t believe I made it. 

I’ve been letting my hair grow out without shaping since April 2012.  Mostly I’ve been protective styling with buns, braidouts, and most recently clip in extensions, more on this DIY later.

I’ve posted some pics below of my before hair, and I’ll update the blog with the reshape once it’s complete.

Enjoy.

I’m hoping to lose.an inch off the back and cut the  bangs to mid nose. My hair in these pics is 9 weeks post relaxer.  I’ll be getting a relaxer on Thursday.

Over Protective

image

I I’ve been wearing my hair straightened after months of protective styling. I am constantly paranoid about breakage as a result. So I’m going back under wraps with my hair to continue to hit my hair goals. Usually you will find my hair in a bun, phony pony, or twisting. With my growth I’m now able to do flat twists around the perimeter. One more protective style so I can continue growing my hair back. #growwithme

My Sick Shoe Game

I’ve recently been finding shoes for great prices.  I’ll bring my latest fashion finds to you weekly  or as they come about.

First up, I’d been searching for cobalt shoes.  Preferably a pair that could be worn anywhere and most preferably suede(or suede-esque).  I found this pair during Forever 21′s BOGO Free Sale.  The color is rich they look and feel awesome!  All for 13.99. 

Check them out and tell me what you think.  I’ll post some pics once I wear them.
