Updates & DE Review

New look, same content.  I really like the simplicity of everything.  Very clean, very refreshing, and very me.

I actually was looking for some type of logo that would represent Steel Feather. Lace Elephant.  I came up with this, made it, and here it is now.  What do you think?!  It’s subject to change, depending on if I want to add more or subtract, but the concept should remain the same.

I went to my first ever Zumbathon today!! Let me just say that I got a workOUT.  YA GIRL GOT MOVES!! No, but really it was very enjoyable. I wouldn’t mind going to Zumba throughout the week… I guess it’s something to think about.

Removed Twist Style

But the real reason I was looking forward to Zumba was so that I could finally take my hair down from the twist style.  It’s not that I didn’t like it, but I just wanted a change.  I’m like that, yanno?  Can’t keep a style in my head for too long… that’s why I don’t even know why I go through the trouble of twisting, braiding, or whatever else I do to my hair that is a protective style.

Speaking of which, this is my last full week of protective styling… actually, it may have already been 21 days… actually, on the 25th it will be 21 days. But I am going to try it one more time.  Who knows?  I may upkeep this regimen.  It is very easy for me to get ready in the mornings for work, I don’t have to worry about a routine at night of maintaining a style, and I don’t really have to worry about my hair.  However, I MISS MY FRO (and so does he). #endrant

Forgot a twist – Oops!
Diggin’ these results

I have washed my hair with the Desert Essence shampoo and conditioner!  The smell is AMAZING – simply amazing.  I could smell that all day.  I liked the fact that the openings of the bottles were sealed, I just wish I had known before I got in the shower to wash my hair.  – ___ –

The consistency of the shampoo wasn’t running, it was actually very creamy and immediately I was in love with the scent.  During wash, it  did not strip my hair or make it have a rough texture, you know… that dry feel.  It gave me a good lather and made my scalp very clean.

The conditioner wasn’t all I hoped it would be.  I wanted to get more moisture from it, something I get from my Tresemme Naturals, but it lacked in that department.  I was able to finger comb/comb through my hair in the shower without a real problem which was a plus.  I was just a little disappointed with the moisture it delivered post rinse.  Maybe next time, I will add in a little bit of oil or just use another conditioner in conjunction with that one.  I didn’t hate it, but I didn’t really love it.

Freshly Washed Hair – Poppin’ Curls

Would I buy it again? The shampoo – YES!  The conditioner?  Maybe another type.  I would really love the try the Apple or the Red Grape to see if there is any difference.  Believe one thing:  I will use this conditioner until it’s GONE.  We don’t waste around these parts…

Next up – Styling!
