Sunday Best: Floral Print and Bright Tights

Screen shot 2013-04-21 at 5.58.02 PM

Today’s choir color was orange. I struggled to find something to wear because I had no orange dress (I need to fix that). I did, however, have orange tights and orange earrings, as well as a tweed jacket that has orange threads in it.

I’ll admit that this outfit was a bit forced, but at least I have orange on! My favorite part of my ensemble, was the side-swept hair. I like the view in the upper left-hand corner the best.

Happy Sunday from the Komo sisters. Enjoy our VEDA video of us singing earlier this week:

Baking Soda/ACV Rinse and Locs Knots

Earlier this week, my hair was feeling dry, dusty, and dirty! I had to do something about it. I knew I had to wash and retwist, but I was looking to try a clarifying wash on my hair for the first time. Screen shot 2013-04-21 at 5.56.25 PM

I researched and found a recipe for an Baking soda & ACV rinse. I followed the step-by-step instructions.

Watch the process here:

The result was a squeaky-clean scalp and  refreshed locks. I followed up the rinse with a retwist and some loc knots.

Here are the results:Screen shot 2013-04-21 at 5.56.40 PM

I noticed that my hair is always in curly styles so I never see how long  my hair is. A friend took a length check picture for me and I was amazed by how much it’s grown!

The loc knot curls are very similar to the pipe cleaner curl, but a little less work to “install”.

 See the video:

The curls held up, even though I only used water and no setting lotion. I love it!

March has been awesome! God has been really showing out this month! I’ve learned a lot and have been growing and putting things into perspective. Speaking of growing, my hair has been growing like a weed. Check out this post tracking my growth this month. Click here to view it.

Naturale Chronicles: March Growth Report

I just wanted to share some pictures of my hair, since it’s been growing so much (at least by my standards)

Hair is now past my shoulders. When stretched they reach past my clavicles. Fullness is still at the top of my head.

I’ve never seen my hair grow this much! I have been able to do so much with them. I can’t believe I once thought I’d be restricted with my hair like this.

 

Worship Soundcheck: “Hallelujah”

Today, I had the opportunity to lead worship at Texas Multicultural Women’s Prayer Breakfast. The Emcee, April Tone, was a phenomenal host for the occasion. 

First, my outfit of the day (OOTD):

Check out my original post (click the picture) about this thrifted dress that I got for under $5

The front of my hair was a lopsided Marley braid-hair bun. The back was my hair in a sloppy french braid. Look, it’s growing!

Here’s the song I sang:

Thought I’d share a secret about myself:

I’m a big goof when it comes to lyrics and order of songs. I’m notorious for making my fingers cheat sheets for the music. Here’s my cheat for one of the songs I did today.

Sunday Best: Bowtie & Blazer

 

I took out my twists after a month of having them in. I bet y’all forgot all about my real hair, huh. I was feeling jazzy and decided to wear my red bowtie and blazer with my high-waisted red jeans.

Hair update:

In the one month that my hair was in twists, it grew a little fuller and longer. I used castor oil on my roots every once in a while. I think it helped. When I retwist later on, today, I’ll be able to tell just how much it grew. Check out the length– past my collarbone!! I’m excited. Glad to have my hair back!
