Say cheese!

Here's a little information about my camera:
  • It's Fujifilm in the S1600 series. 
  • I bought on eBay for ~$150.
  • I think it's 12mp.
  • it has a 15x zoom.
  • It is battery-operated
  • it has panoramic view.
I had a friend who said my camera was less superior because it was made by Fuji but I have found little to complain about it. It's my baby and I was able to get all the functionality I needed without spending too much cash. With good lighting and auto settings, you can do amazing things with this camera. I have no regrets making this purchase. I just wish I had more time to play around with it. :-)

The routine

I'm about two weeks post and I noticed some slight shedding and breakage. So I decided to do a protein treatment today. I usually DC with ORS hair mayo on dry hair first, but I was anxious to hop in the shower. I washed with a moisturizing shampoo first. Then, I applied the hair mayo and left my hair in a cap for one hour (no heat). I rinsed it out and towel dried with a bit of leave-in. I applied Shea Butter and let it air dry. After about two hours, I moisturized with ORS hair lotion and sealed with coconut oil.

I have the best-smelling hair products! My roommate noticed the smell and asked "What is that?" Lol. My hair is soft and moisturized and the protein has stopped the breakage dead in its tracks. The HHJ proceeds and I am learning to love my hair!

(I usually deep condition every two weeks.)

Who got me on my hair journey?


She showed me that it was totally possible for black girls to a) retain length and b) can maintain it with quality care.

She led me to Traycee who led me to Shout out to Traycee and ulovmegz!
