I try to do a post at least once a month, usually to give an update on my hair. This month has been really hectic. I got back from a month long vacation in the first week of August, and now I'm getting to leave for college this weekend! I haven't found the time yet to post pictures of how I'm currently wearing my hair or how I've worn it this month. Here is one current pic that happened to be on my pc. (It's actually gonna be my college id photo, how cool is that!)It's flat twists on the side and a twist out all over. I promise I will post more later.

Right now I'm trying not to stress about the fact that I have one day to pack and I have so much still to do. I'm afraid I'm gonna forget something. Why am I sitting in front of this computer? I keep asking myself the same thing.
I do have one question you may be able to answer. In the past couple of weeks I've been trying to figure out how I'm go to maintain my hair using as litle products as possible. My dorm isn't that big and neither is my budget.

Here's my plan: Co-wash weekly with Herbal Essences' Totally Twisted Conditioner, deep condition bi-weekly with Africa Organic's Hair Mayonnaise, and moisturize with Cantu Shea Butter, spritzer (water, hot six oils, and cocunut oil). Let me know what you think. Is that too much, is there a cheaper alternative? Tips and welcome.

When I get settled in my dorm, I will be sure to do a post on my current styles. And Alice, I haven't forgotten your request for my frohawk tutorial!
