Hugs and Kisses: Controversy behind Curl Typing and curl pattern/ texture denial

HAHA I titled it "Hugs and Kisses" because I really wish everyone would just hug &(cheek) kiss seriously about the constant arguing and bickering over silly things, for the sake of this post though particularly curl typing and texture acceptance/ denial.
Now, before you guys get all angry and think I'm trying to be mean.... I'm NOT, under ANY circumstances but I feel it is my turn to touch on the subject with my little 2 cents for what it is worth PLUS during my little daily vlog  I explained I would be vloggn about my views on curl typing and texture denial.

CASTOR OIL CHALLEGE

In my recent drugstore haul (check out YouTube to see it) I purchased some CASTOR oil because after watching TheIciing videos on YouTube and hours of Google searching I was convinced that it actually did aid in hair growth, health and thickness. I have committed myself to doing a CASTOR OIL CHALLENGE to expedite the growing process for my hair, I would seriously LOVE for others to join in with me and keep me on my game!!!! I actually will be using regular castor oil that can be purchased at any drug store, it will appear to be a laxative but it IS SAFE for hair application, I also purchased some Jamaican Black Castor Oil fro  my local Beauty Supply store, the brand I purchased is from "Jamaican Mango& Lime". Before writing this post I actually just received my confirmation from Amazon letting me know my "Tropical Island Living: Jamaican Black castor Oil has shipped i have seen MANY reviews on this castor oil and I think it will be more beneficial than a widely commercialized product because the Jamaican Mango and lime oil isn't 100% pure castor oil it is definitely thinned out with other oils and to really see the growth I want I decided it would be best to purchase 100% JBCO plus I want the thickness to help me seal in moisture and help retain moisturized hair so I personally do not want mine mixed with any other oils UNLESS I do it myself in a separate application bottle.
In addition to the castor oil I will be doing the Green House Effect  this ALSO encourages healthy hair growth!
The Castor Oil Challenge will go like this,... well this is how I am incorporating this into MY REGIMEN

  • Apply Castor Oil to scalp daily or every other day
  • Seal ends with JBCO daily
  • Massage scalp nightly
  • Do the GHE 5 nights a week
    1. Apply Oil/ Moisturize and seal hair(JBCO/EVOO)
    2. Apply plastic bag
    3. Put on scarf and a bonnet(This concludes the GHE method)
The Green House Effect is to help grow you hair, this originated from "The Real Queens Regimen" you could definitely go check out the website, it is a successful regimen and I recommend doing it, you can find the regimen here: Real Queens Regimen !!!

January Health Challenge

Hey everyone, I've been uber focused on my weight loss& haven't done any thing new with my hair and it resulted in a neglect of my blog! However I decided to include my readers and anyone else who'd like to join in the January health challenge!
This whole month I will have 1 green smoothie a day, for breakfast and eat clean and continue to do INSANITY workouts! Right now I am 30 days in but that post will come at a later date! I feel my loss could have been way more if I'd kicked up my nutrition however I have poor eating habits, I eat clean BUT I don't eat often maybe twice a day without snacks in between unless I remember to snack,... But back to the January Challenge I really want my readers and or friends to join me and really kicking off your/my weight loss progress!
So again here is how it will go:
1.Green Smoothie a day
2.minimum 64oz of water daily
3.multivitamin of choice
4.Cardio Daily(my cardio is Insanity)
5.EATING CLEAN!!!
That's it though, simple and straight to the point!!! If you want in just let me know!

6 month low manipulation/protective challenge

Ok,so I kno its been like forever since yall heard from me but...here I am! My last post was about those lovely box braids that I loved so much,well i took them down and the reality of actually caring for my hair slapped me in the face so I'm going for a challenge...Here's the deal my husband as u all kno is in the Air Force and deployed right now he will be away for 6 months....so my bright idea was to make Brittany better it gives me more rime to focus on me...that being said I have embarked on a new LIFESTYLE...Healthy Hair,Fitness,and Clean Eating! I work out every morning at least 20 nonstop minutes (bc its a short time and I want max results I dont stop) sometimes 40 mins! I don't eat processed foods,I only drink water,I take vitamins, protein shakes/bars and watch my portions when I eat! I have my fitness pal on my phone to help count calories...and this weekend i will weigh and do measurements along with a pic (to be used as my before shot). As for my hair i will be wearing box braids,twists, roller sets...all those styles we love that allow for as little maintenance as possible! (Seriously considering LOCS) Pics coming very soon....oh my mini me peyton is on a healthy hair challenge too...braids for her! Oh And I forgot to mention I got braces...I feel like im gonna be a totally different Brittany by the time Byron gets home, well I will be because I'll be healthy!!!!

I am SO sorry

Hey you guys,
I hope y'all havent completely abandoned me lol, I promise I WILL find a great balance between working out and blogging, and eating healthy, and maintaining healthy friendships and relationships.... it is getting real and I truly wish I had found a balance earlier.
I actually have my hair in two strand twists because I work out everyday...six days a week y'all... (watch me hit my dougie) I TOLD y'all I was going to commit to getting in shape.
Um I am working out with Insanity,...Walking in the park, and I go to the gym...I have a trainer, an amazing woman her name is Indiana and she is pushing me to my limit each and every day, I have grown to love and respect her!
I am taking Herbalife shakes for breakfast and  dinner, I eat lunch and two snacks daily, I do not know if I have lost any weight because I try to focus more on working out, more than anything. Herbalife is AMAZING gives me energy and the shakes are tasty, I am not trying to "get skinny quick" this is truly a lifestyle change I am clean eating, my snacks are usually whole grain crackers and fruit, the shakes have ALL the nutrients I need and I will ALWAYS take them, once I lose a significant amount of weight, I will continue to take the shakes because it is NOT a diet you are instructed to eat when you are hungry, just eat smart when you are hungry instead of unhealthy.Because my body is getting all the nutrients I need I am having crazy nail growth which i assume will happen to my hair as well, because with a poor diet my hair grew but with a healthy and balanced diet I know my hair will benefit from it.! I currently have been keeping my hair in two strand twists because it is easy for me, I don't know another way to wear my hair with working out,.. I need to deep condition as I type this post actually, My hair are in medium sized twists, I did not have the time or patience for mini twists because I needed to do something to my hair ASAP. I usually Moisturize and seal my ends before bed and my hair seems to be doing JUST fine which is why I chose to keep my hair twisted because with working out I am more tired and my days start earlier and end earlier, do those long hours waiting for my wash n go to dry just do not seem appeasing to me right now lol. I just want to wake up and moisturize and go& with the twists I can!
I will come back with a weight loss update in maybe a week, so next Saturday I will pop in again with an update about my weight meanwhile give me time to update about my hair lol.
