Lemming: Qhemet Biologics Sampler

The Soften and Hydrate Sampler at Qhemet Biologics looks like a true must have. Here's the scoop: "Due to our limited production capacity and the high demand for this product, items in the sampler, which consists of four 2 oz. trial sized products, may vary. The two constant items will be the Karkady Tea Replenishing Mist and the Amla & Olive Heavy Cream. The third and fourth items will vary based on availability between the new Burdock Root Butter Cream, the Honeybush Tea Soft Hold Gel and the Olive & Honey Hydrating Balm." I love the Amla and Olive Cream, I try not to use it too often because I am trying to stretch it out!


Shrinkage is so whack. I mean really, you never get to see how long your hair really is without pulling and tugging on it. I am happy to see how much longer my hair is, with shriankage. This picture of my hair is straight out of the shower, looking rather dense. When looking at it, I didn't really notice a difference, UNTIL I looked at pictures of my big chop. I was utterly shocked, my hair has almost doubled in size. I can't wait to see how much longer it gets within the upcoming years!

Bantu Knots!

I'm attempting the infamous wavy bantu knots tonight. I'll be so mad if they don't look okay!! Well, not really, I'll just throw it in a puff!! I still have a quarter jar of Curly Meringue that I am trying to get rid of, so I decided to use it tonight! After my co-wash, I used my glycerin/water mix, Redken Anti-Snap, a bit of Shea butter and the Curly Meringue. I'm hoping that it will come out more wavy than frizzy. I probably should have made them smaller, I'm sure they would have looked better that way. We'll see in the morning....
