Don't Neglect Your Scalp

Today I did something I haven't done in a very long time. I gave my scalp some much needed tlc. 

So often I've written about loc maintenance, care, cleanliness, etc but I've admittedly ignored my scalp. I keep it clean, I avoid buildup but it seems that I forgot that it's skin requiring the same care as the rest of my skin.

I do spray it with a leave-in when it itches but I seldom use oils as I used to when I was a loose natural. I oiled and massaged my scalp today. It felt heavenly!  I dug around and found a steam cap and used it on my moisturized scalp.  My locs were outside of the cap, I was more interested in opening up my pores so all the nourishing oils would be fully absorbed.

Its only been a half hour since steaming but my scalp feels worlds different.  If you read my blog, you know how anal I am about avoiding buildup.  It seems I took cleanliness to the extreme and parched my poor scalp. Find the balance folks. Beware of sulphates but find a good clarifier. Beware of buildup but find a good moisturizer.  Beware of being heavy handed with product but don't leave your hair and scalp thirsty.

Find that balance.

Later all!

An up do I tried out 1 night

Lol.. I was bored one night soooo... Here it is!. Tutorial to come!

Raxxie's Back (i think)

First post in awhile! My gosh!  I have to say, I certainly have missed you guys!  There has been so much going on in my life during my blog-fast.  Lots of ups and downs.  Lots of soul searching!  I've started a few project (a novel included), and have made some decisions in my life (going back to school).  There has been a lot. Lol. But I've certainly missed this!

I do intend to come back and post regularly again.  I have some tutorials and update and product reviews in the works.  I should have them here, on my YouTube, and on my fotki pages so stay tuned. 

One large reason for my return is that since finishing school I've lost all sense of regimental focus. Since I'm going back to school I'm going to need that mindset again so it's time to give myself various regiments.  Blogging and posting will be my 1st one. Soon to be added with working out.  The laziness is ending!

Thanks for bearing with me y'all! Thanks for sticking around!  I will win back your love, I promise! Lol.
