Oil Cocktail

Upon leaving my hair appointment, my loctitian told me to use a few key items on my new baby locs-oil for 'moisture' and sea breeze 'cleansing' and dry scalp. Man oh man, my scalp is THIRSTY! I had to reformulate my oil cocktail mixture, since it ran out some time ago. I forgot the essentials that I used when I was relaxed, but here is the version that I am using right now. (This was what I had lying around my bathroom).

Equal Parts (about 1/4 cup)
Amla (Ayurvedic Oil from Indian Amla Plant)
Vatika (Enriched Indian Coconut Oil)
Sweet Almond

Back in the day, I used to SWEAR by Keracare Essential Oils for the Hair. Everytime I smell it I think of the hair salon and my perfect roller sets and up-do's! The ingrediants on the label include Sunflower Seed, Peanut, Castor, Coconut, Jojoba, Sesame, Aloe Vera, Almond and Olive oils. I have made a vow NOT to purchase any more hair products for the month of April. After I've used a good portion of my homemade cocktail, I'll add some of the other essentials that I just posted. Wish me luck!

Loc Album

My name is Erin Indecisive. I am locing my hair. The twists are binding together, and I'm not going to fight it. While I am blogging here, I will document through images on Fotki. Feel free to check out my journey, thus far.

The Twist-Out Experiment

On day 15 of my 30 day twisting challenge, I decided to try something new. I took roughly 10-15 twists and twisted them again. Then, I put each of the twists into a knot around itself. Here are the results. I only left them in for 3-4 hours, because it was something that I was just fooling around with randomly during the afternoon.

Just took the twists out of the knots. The Medusa look is not what's up. Still need to do most of my makeup.

Untwisted the larger sections, and there is hair everywhere! I love the effect! Had I left it in longer, I'm sure it would have had way more bounce!

I threw it back in a band for a few minutes while playing around with styles. Later on, I pinned it up for a very cute look. I received compliments all day. Who says naturals can't be fly?!

I can't believe that I micro twisted my hair and haven't updated on it! WTF?! Today I put them in knots. I took a group of 10-12 twists, then twisted them, then put them into knots. I'm hoping for some kind of effect, although I don't know what it will be. Hmmm....

I'm in the process of doing my micro twists! While parting my hair, here's what I found. Man, these babies are one of the reasons why I'm not ready to loc!
