Tresses Thursday 2/9/17

Hi and welcome to another Tresses Thursday, where I share¬†hair updates, hairstyles, and tips.ūüėĬ† My goal every week is to try a different hairstyle, and this week’s surely is brand new and extremely simple.

First, I washed my hair using  Andalou hair products, then put Giovanni Direct Leave-In Conditioner in. After that I used a thick-toothed comb to distribute it thoroughly
through my hair. Then, I parted my hair from the top of one ear to the other and twisted the bottom section into a bun to be dealt with later. With the hair in the front I parted it into four sections. Each section before getting twisted along my head received about a quarter sized amount of Desert Essence J0joba Oil. The remaining hair from the twists against my head got twisted into a bun.

With the front done, I moved on to the back section. I applied a quarter-sized amount of jJojoba oil to it, combed it through, and then braided the rest.

And there you have it!

download_20160221_183534Hi and welcome to Tresses Thursday! This week I’d like to share with you the growth and condition of my hair. In this picture, which¬†was¬†taken in February of 2016 before I switched to using Andalou Naturals products, my hair is flat ironed straight. As you can see, my hair looks kind of dry, especially at the end. It was smooth and nice feeling on the top half, the half closest to my head, the newest growth, but the bottom half felt a little offensive to touch and obviously doesn’t look as good.¬† Continue reading Tresses Thursday 9/1/2016

Here is this Friday’s:

Ch 2

Her arms and legs glided through the water, as if her and it were one. Her fingertips touched the wall and she flipped, turning and heading in the opposite direction. The familiar ache of her lungs relaxed her, allowing her mind to be empty as her body worked. Her head turned for air as her arms circled above her head, ready to butterfly down the lane. It was her favorite stroke because it allowed her to swim like a mermaid, like she belonged in the water, was born to be in it.

After a couple more laps she decided to head to shore. It was about midday, few clouds in the sky, a tender breeze caressing the water. She heard what sounded like a fog horn and looked around, confused. This was a lake.

She chalked it up to being tired and swam a little faster towards shore. She heard the sound again and spun completely around, nothing in sight. Hmm, she wondered just what that noise was. She peered around the lake but saw no source of the sound.

Unexpectedly a wave came at her, and then another, higher and higher. Her limbs flailed, trying to stay above water, but she couldn’t. Quickly the wave overtook her and she went under. Her muscles cramped up as she fought to get to the surface. Anxiety and panic pumped blood through her veins as she kicked, her legs throbbing. It seemed like her fingertips almost touched the surface, but it was more like caressing the underside. Something yanked on her ankle, once, twice quickly before she could even react, and then it started to drag her down. Continue reading Moonrise Ch 2
