My Henna Tattoo is Fashionable but Not Permanent!

I love to see tattoos. I love singer Rihanna’s tattoos. I love the thought of having musical notes and symbols tattooed along my neck. I mean there are an infinite amount of brilliant tattoos for your visual pleasure. That brings me to my point of discussion.

I was recently at the Northend Festival in Detroit, Michigan and got a henna tattoo! This was new for me because I never ever heard of a henna tattoo until then. I heard of henna for the hair, for the longest time though. Well, enough about that. For those of you who
don’t know, a henna tattoo is made with a colored gel that is squeezed from a tube and drawn on your body. I got this HENNA tattoo just yesterday. The young lady who drew it saw a picture of a tattoo on a woman’s hand and just started drawing it out on my left hand. It was full of detail, appealing to the eyes, and so darn elegant!

I was careful with what I touched because I didn’t want to
mess up the whole thing. The corner of my design on my finger got smudged right away a tad bit. But forget that. The henna tattoo is banging. I recommend it for those who’ve always loved to see tattoos and don’t want a permanent one.

I washed my hands and the design’s thick gel like consistency wore off. The thing is that it still left an imprint like something with a strong foundation. This is day two and the tattoo’s imprint is still there.

The best features a home can have are what?

I’ve done home tours. I saw the inside of my cousin’s original house when it was remodeled. It was so much more glamorous the second time around.I used to o rder home magazines to see the insides of houses. And you know what? I saw alot of great features in those houses. What kinda features do you think make a house grand or superb? I think a great house should have these features:

canopy bed

double sinks

double ovens

waterroom

balcony

open  faucet

glass shower

jacuzzi tub

in door pool

glass door

dining room

two way stairs

10 bedrooms

10 bathrooms

gym in home

side door

front door

see through cabinets

mail slot

shelves built into wall

walk in closet

I’m sure there are plenty of more features to be named. If you think of any, let me know.

This is me, Charismaallover, a day before my birthday! ( Fashion pictures)

This is me a day before my birthday on November 23, 2013. I was eating a taco and two tostadas for dinner.
Then, the restaurant crew came and let me borrow the sombrero. They made me dessert and sung happy
birthday to me. This was at a mexican restaurant.  Yes, I was sitting there in style. It was a nice surprise.
My real birthday is November 24,2013.

This is me a day before my birthday.

The Marvelous 6 techniques for deep conditioning natural hair!

(Photo from bing.com)

Deep conditioning! Let it echo in your mind if you will. I love deep conditioning.  I notice when the hairstylist deep conditions
my hair, which has trouble smoothing out, it comes out smooth
and refreshed. Then I feel refreshed. My heart would just like to dance in the glory of my freshly styled hair.

Anyways, deep conditioning takes a truly essential role in the survival of coily hair. Coily hair NEEDS rich moisture since it is the most likely to be dry. Due to the fact that the circumference of coily hair is smaller than curly hair, the sebum of the scalp takes longer to go down the hair shaft. Therefore, since sebum takes a long time to get from roots to ends, you need to prevent dryness and breakage. Deep conditioners are full of proteins, lubricants, and oils to help your hair maintain elasticity, prevent breakage, and give hair back its strength. Now, for the 6 top tips for deep condtioning and washing your hair.

– Use an all natural conditioner Deep conditioning is used to rejuvenate your hair since it’s been
under pressure from manipulation and weather elements. Seek
a deep conditioner that doesn’t have non-suluble silicones, non-permeable oils, and drying alcohols. This will give your hair the opportunity to take in more nutrients and lower the chances of getting product build up. Natural conditoners are the best way to avoid decreasing your strand’s absorption capacity.

– Behentrimonium chloride This is a cationic surfactant that gives your hair that slip while you detangle. Coily hair typically interwine, but moreso when activated
with water. Slip is needed. Behentrimonium chloride gives your
hair that slip that is just as helpful as silicones without the product
build-up.

– Penetrating oils Avocado oil, coconut oil, and olive oil are three oils that
penetrate the hair shaft and get to the cortex. Oils help to slow
down the rate at which moisture is loss from the hair.

-Hyrdolized proteinsThese proteins are proteings that have been set up to seap into the cuticle and fill in the cortex.  They help hair bounce back from weare and tear. It replaces protein that get lost in manipulation. CurlyNikki’s Finding Your Perfect Deep Condtioner-THe Ultimate Guide is a wonderful reference to a collection of hydrolized proteins and more information.

-Use heat Deep conditioning with a processing cap under a hooded dryer is ideal.  It would be best to stay under the dryer for at least 15 minutes. It takes longer to absorb the conditioners nutrients without confined heat? Again, that’s why my hair comes out refreshed when
deep conditioned.The heat expands the hair shaft and gives the conditioner more availability to seap through. In addition to that, it helps certain ingredients bond to the cuticle.

-Cool water It helps to rinse your hair with cool water after deep conditioning. This step helps to close the culture. Rinsing with warm water re-opens the hair shaft and lose nutrients you just put into your hair. If you find a time where moisturizing and sealing don’t work and your hair keeps laughing at your co-wash conditonder, it is now time to deep condition. The body needs water to be hydrated. Product build up and synthetic ingredients are not the best way to hydrate.

Well I certainly enjoyed the read. I can’t wait to try these methods because it’s been a long journey and I want some  extra special results.

A Review of the HOt and Hotter Professionals Curling Iron- It doesn’t keep the curls!

 

Image

I have been in search of a curling iron that can make my hair silky smooth

with a nice collection of curls.I want something defined and will show my

curls for who they are. Therefore, I used Hot and Hotter Professionals

electric curling iron and what did I get? Again, what did I get? I had small

curls, yet it reverted right back to the natural texture. I was thinking that

the word professionals in the title would make it work. I was driven by

this title.Well the title didn’t help this time!

    My curls fell out and there was much disorganization in my hair. It didn’t

say ceramic curling iron, It said electric curling iron. I’m going around asking

people what’s the best curling iron or flat iron. They say look for a ceramic

one.

      The Hot and Hotter Professionals electric curling iron is not good for my

naturally coarse specific hair. So now, I will try something else and get back

to you. This was the same  curling iron I got from the beauty supply store too.

and two thumbs down to the curling iron! I didn’t like my curls falling out because

after that I didn’t know what to do with my hair. I need something stronger for my

afro textured hair. Any experiences with this brand? Feel free to share or comment

if you’d like. Thanks a bunch!

A trip to the hairstylist made my curls last longer!

Curls! curls! curls! How did you get those curls? Well,
personally, I had to walk to get the curls I have. These
curls come from walking 25-30 minutes. I was looking at
Office depot for a computer charger. Their price was over
my budget. Therefore I went into the mall to look for
another computer charger. I discovered a fantastic salon
equipped with my needs.

I went in there and ask her if she would do my hair
since I didn’t spend the money on the computer charger.
She said she was done for the day. I could come tomorrow,
which was Friday!

I felt so refreshed! My hair had been so hard to deal
with.It was hard to curl, hard to pin down, hair to style
which I think is a result of the relaxer. I switched
relaxers and wasn’t consistent. My hair is too soft
so I won’t get anymore relaxers.

I went into the shop. The lady put some syntonics on my
hair. I felt the pores in my head open. My scalp felt
refreshed and hair too. This syntonics was something
only stylist can order! I wish I could purchase. Maybe
I should become a hairstylist one day and get the product.
lol!

She shampooed my hair. Then, she conditioned my hair
with a deep conditioner under the dryer. It gave my
hair some serious moisture that it needed so bad.
I have these coarse hair that lacks moisture. Now,
She dried my hair. Then she used these thermal curling
irons.

These curling irons left my hair with the best
silk, smooth shiny hair. It has been over 7 days
and my hair is still lasting. I roll it up and go
to bed. I wake up with these fancy curls that curve
to my face. It doesn’t look dry anymore! I love
what beauticians do. I want to learn how to train
my hair too. THat’s my testimony.
What were your experiences with
hairstylist?

Feb_2011_009

Why does the hair get dry? What are you doing to cause your
hair to be dry? I do have dry hair so I’m just starting
to use doo gro on my hair. I used to have dandruff,
but guess what? I haven’t seen any snowflakes in my
hair lately. (Snowflakes is another word I use
to represent dandruff.)
Check out the list of things that cause
dry hair.

1. Using harsh shampoos
2. Shampooing too often
3. Infrequent use of conditioners
4. Synthetic hair dyes
5. Harsh relaxers
6. Exposure to Isopropyl alcohol
7. Chlorine
8. Washing with hot water
9. Overuse of blow drying or curling iron
10. Too much exposure to the sun and wind

Internal factors that causes dry hair is:

1. Diet
2. Cancer treatment
3. Certain medications
4. Prolonged illness
5. Prolonged dehydration

Now you have the problem, work on the solution. There are
many ways to deal with hair. Just make sure that
you don’t do it the wrong way if you don’t want
to see the wrong result. Dryness is an irritation.
Dry hair, dry skin is all an irritation and
can be very uncomfortable. Though the key sentence
is “What are you going to do about it?’ Have you made
any of the mistakes above? If so, I’m glad to
inform you.
