Hey Beautiful! Tia here, long time no see or hear. We've been hanging out a few days here and there. We had the chance to check out DC, Virginia, New Jersey, and stepped into Manhattan a quick minute.
Those of you who we get the pleasure to talk to know how much we love the beach, so we checked out Belmar Beach in New Jersey and had a ball. The only bad thing is that we didn't listen to our own advice. Dimple's hair was left wild and free, which looked really beautiful at the time. But by the time we got to where we were staying, her hair turned into coils and dreads. It was really late, but I knew if I left it until morning, I may have to cut out some locs.
|Our Hair on Day 1 of our 2 week Vacation|
I made my magic potion conditioner, water, oil mix. It wasn't working. I FOUND OUT WHY: because I couldn't find the Tresemme that I typically use (the Tresemme Naturals). In that bottle was Tresemme Moisture conditioner. This conditioner has cones. I didn't read the label until after my hair started feeling like it had a layer of "gunk" on it. Also, it didn't respond to any of my style preparations (braidout, twist out, bun, etc)--nothing but ashy frizz hair. We've (me, T, and Dimples) have had lots of "bad hair days" while on vacay.

The moral of this story is: once you find a routine that works, and products that your hair responds well to, don't deviate from that! I SHOULD HAVE PACKED MY CONE-FREE CONDITIONER!!

I finally found the Tresemme Naturals Conditioner. I bought V05 Clarifying Shampoo to get the cones off of our hair, so the conditioner can do what it's supposed to do. So far so good (with my hair). I washed Dimple's hair.
