Shampoo Bars


By Brandi Leigh, 2013-01-05

After testing a variety of shampoo bars I'm starting to think that they aren't for me.

I have tried rubbing the bar directly at the roots, lathering in my hands applying to roots only ( which was great and set off a flare up of my eczema, my hands hate any change), rubbing the bar all over, etc etc.

It makes hair just too oily no matter what I do. After washing my hair with a natural shampoo bar, after it dries it looks like I haven't washed it for a week.

So my plans now are to use up my bars and really give each one the good old college try and then I will move to the liquid version I see on the dreadlock shampoo site. Hopefully changing the method of delivery will give me results I enjoy more.

I won't be doing a baking soda wash because literally everytime my skin has come into contact with it I've had a horrible reaction and I'd prefer not to be washing my hair and having to wear a hazmat outfit at the same time.

It's all a learning process and I'm kind of entertained. I never planed to be gaining such an intimate knowledge of my hair's likes and dislikes.

And...here comes the new year


By Brandi Leigh, 2013-01-01

I was very busy with the holidays ( everyone goes on vacation but me at work ) but I made it to the other side.

It's a brand new year that I began with a delicious veggie stew and slathering on some of my favorite scents. I'm staying positive and I know that this year is gonna be awesome, I can feel it in my bones.

I'm also looking forward to catching up with the nicest community on the net :)

Happy Holidays yall!

dyshidrotic eczema


By Brandi Leigh, 2012-12-22

So, I switched out all my soaps and shampoo with all natural items in anattempt to control my eczema ( and obviously to have healthy, residue free hair ).

My skin did NOT approve of this change. I watched my hands literally dry out and huge blisters show up.

So now I'm stuck with the long and incredibly annoying task of figuring out which item/ingrediant my skin has decided to hate this time.

So annoying this seems to always happen to me when I try to bring natural products in the house :(

Totally completely unrelated about dreads but then again, we are more than just our hair style!

Bakezori ( Haunted foot wear ! )
A bakezori, or ghost sandal, is what your sandal will turn into if you bring it into the house or mistreat it.

Church Grim
The Church Grim, Kirk Grim, Kyrkogrim (Swedish) or Kirkonvki (Finnish) is a figure from English and Scandinavian folklore, said to be an attendant spirit, overseeing the welfare of its particular church. English Church Grims are said to enjoy loudly ringing the bells. They may appear as black dogs or as small, misshapen, dark-skinned people.

Huldra
The Huldra is a seductive forest creature found in Scandinavian folklore. (Her name derives from a root meaning "covered" or "secret".) In Norwegian folklore, she is known as the skogsr or skogsfru/skovfrue (meaning "Lady (read, counterpart of a Lord) of the forest"). She is known as Tallemaja (pine tree Mary) in Swedish folklore, and Ulda in Smi folklore. Her name suggests that she is originally the same being as the vlva Huld and the German Holda.[1] A male hulder is called a huldu, or, in Norway, a huldrekarl.

Leyak
In the folklore of Bali, the Leyak (in Indonesian, people called it 'Leak' (le-ak)the Y is not written or spoken) is a mythological figure in the form of flying head with entrails (heart, lung, liver, etc.) still attached. Leyak is said to fly trying to find a pregnant woman in order to suck her baby's blood or a newborn child.[1] There are three legendary Leyak, two females and one male.

Valravn
In Danish folklore, a valravn (Danish "raven of the slain") is a supernatural raven. The ravens appear in traditional Danish folksongs, where they are described as originating from ravens who consume the bodies of the dead on the battlefield, as capable of turning into the form of a knight after consuming the heart of a child, and, alternately, as half-wolf and half-raven creatures.

Vampire Fruit
The belief in vampire fruit is similar to the belief that any inanimate object left outside during the night of a full moon will become a vampire. One of the main indications that a pumpkin or melon is about to undergo a vampiric transformation (or has just completed one) is said to be the appearance of a drop of blood on its skin.

Wabanaki Ice Cannibals
Wabanaki Ice Cannibals aka Chenoos are the evil man-eating ice giants of northern Wabanaki legends. A Chenoo was once a human being who either became possessed by an evil spirit or committed a terrible crime (especially cannibalism or withholding food from a starving person), causing his heart to turn to ice. In a few legends a human has been successfully rescued from the frozen heart of a Chenoo, but usually once a person has been transformed into a Chenoo, their only escape is death.

Tichel


By Brandi Leigh, 2012-12-15

I was looking up hair coverings for fun or business and I absolutely fell in love with the Tichel.

I'm really a big fan of some of the newer, bow-y, tiered designs by Leelach on Etsy of these.

Also, Andrea Grinberg's personal blog has a variety of styles with a really pretty braided scarf option.

Then I got sidetracked by looking up all odd assortment of modest clothing including insane giant swimdresses but we won't even get into that haha.

Alice Says Hi


By Brandi Leigh, 2012-12-13

So I bought some face soap and random items from some people I wanted to check out on Etsy, signature required of course. And the post office is having an "agent who can better assist you" call me today or tomorrow to find out where my Buck's order went so I'm keeping my fingers crossed!

My hair is a bit soft ( I blame the shampoo ) but still sectioning itself out at the bottom pretty nicely, it's only going to get better once I replenish my cupboard of nice, natural shampoos.

All my cellphone pictures of my hair looked like hell today so I took a pic of a painting I did that I have in my vanity area instead haha. It's Alice in Wonderland if anyone is interested.

Anyway, happy Thursday world!
