Big Chop!!

The Sunday after my birthday I cut my hair short.

Really short.

I went in thinking that I would walk out looking like a rather unattractive boy but (thankfully) I was wrong. I loved it!! I even let the stylist shave off a little more before I got up from the chair. My next concern was whether or not I would let my hair grow back as originally planned or if I would keep it short.

I love the cut but I miss my puff so, I’m letting my hair grow back. This time, I’m going to take really good care of it. I’m going to develop a regimen to keep my hair moisturized and healthy. I am experimenting for now but I am pretty satisfied with my Tresemme conditioner and Cantu Coconut Curling Cream. I am not as satisfied with my current moisturizer so I will have to keep hunting for something better. I can’t stop touching my curls and twisting them but I need to. I just love the way my hair looks and feels. Here’s what I have so far:

Every day, I put water on my hair. I don’t use a spray bottle. I just run water over my hands then run my hands through my hair, massaging my scalp as I do so. I then add curling creme of some sort and moisturizer and make sure it covers every strand of hair.

It’s a simple routine but I feel that it’s a good start. Here’s to a happy and successful hair journey.

    • Sorry it has taken me so long to reply. I couldn’t for the life of me figure out how to reply to a comment from my phone. Anyway, I am curious to know the consistency of the moisturizer you use. Mine is very much like pure water, all liquid. I guess I expected there to be some thickness to it, more like a cream than a liquid.


  1. I used to use one creamy moisturizer like that. After applying water on my hands and working it on my hair, i’ll pump some amount od the mositurizer/leave in on my palm and work on my hair again then seal with shea butter. On days when I want to remoisturize, i’ll simply apply water and twist my hair. I don’t didn’t do much of the water oil spritz.
