New thang…Hair, husband, attitude…lol

Okay, so the title is a bit misleading. I do have new hair…cause it grew, YAY! I do have a new husband…cause I got married to my best friend on June 16th. I DO NOT have a new attitude…I’m always me no matter what changes I encounter 🙂 I know the last post I said I was going to stop using castile soap, but I didn’t (my new regimen is below). I just decided to do a ACV rinse afterwards to stabilize my hairs PH after the Castile soap. There is a wealth of information on youtube that countless talented women have shared and I mostly take bits and pieces from each of them so that my journey is a success defined by me. I’m listing some of my favorite youtubers, my curent regimin, and of course posting pics 🙂

My baby girl will be two years old soon so I am starting to get her routine in place. Nothing too serious or involving too much product. When I say product I mean mostly natural ingredients of home made product. Her small regimen follows mine.
