Thoughts that occur to me about our hair struggles.

Naturally Bumpy Hair

Do you ever feel like this? Why can’t I have real wavy hair in stead of naturally gigantic bumpy hair? I guess it counts as wavy. What are your hair woes?

Wavy Nation Minute: Happy!




The art of using the shape you woke up with. I make a lot of decisions based on what it looks like out of pineapple. This day I had great volume and fair definition with minor wonky bits. I knew these products would work to enhance and preserve but not be a full out re-style.

3rd Day refresh success!

from Instagram:
Super happy with this Day 3 refresh. I’m currently using a spray bottle with about 1 cup water, 3 drops lavender oil and about a third of a dropper of Argan oil instead of plain  water to spritz down morning hair. I call it Lavender argan water. So I did a medium amount of spritz down with that and then about one pump of Deva Supercream  scrunched in all over the length and then Curly Hair Solutions CurlKeeper. Surprisingly good combo!  #hair #hairofinstagram #bbloggers #wavy #wavybob #wavyhair #wavyswavy #wavyswavyhair #curlyhair #curls

3rd Day Refresh Daily Routine (DR)

from Instagram:
Refreshed with @herbivorebotanicals Sea Mist, then water spritz, scrunched in a couple handfuls of Tresemme Perfectly UnDone Sea Foam, diffused and then scrunched in Jeff Chastain TexturizIng paste. Slightly diffused again. Ok for third day. #hair #hairofinstagram #hairofig #wavy #wavybob #wavygirl #wavyhair #wavycurls #wavyswavy #curls #wavycurlyhair #wavycurls #bbloggers

Not Totally Off Topic: Karen’s Curried Brown Rice Salad

OK, so, what goes into your body affects what comes out of your head, so this isn’t totally off topic 🙂


I had some brown rice in the fridge to use up and some of one of those cranberry, walnut, almond salad topper stuff you get in a package and it also needed to be used soon. So, looking at what I had on hand, and because I adore curry above all other spices this is what I made and it was SO good I had to pass it on.

Karen’s Curried Brown Rice Salad

1 cup brown rice, warmed up
3 baby carrots, finely chopped
1 radish thinly slice and then sliced in strips
1 celery stalk, finely chopped
1 scallion, thinly chopped or sliced
1/2 orange, chopped
1/4 to 1/3 cup cranberry walnut type salad topper mix

1 1/2 TBSP olive oil
2 tsp lemon juice
1/4 tsp curry
2 teaspoons honey

Mix rice, veggies, fruit and nut fruit topper together. Mix dressing and pour over the rice mixture and mix. I think it would be best slightly warm like this but I would not hesitate to eat it refrigerated either.

This was just super delicious.
