Almost Week 12

So I've had an exciting week, I did some traveling and saw some family, a great way to start the summer I believe. I have been experimenting with various curls with my hair. Well really just one and I like it. I now can tell that my hair has gotten thicker and I'm starting to get a 'fro' feel from wearing it out which is good because i miss my length and sometimes I miss my hair being out but when I curl it, it becomes fluffy and soft and feels like an old familiar phase. The first set of curls were created when I took out the style that I had in the slide show below and the second set of curls which are in the new slide show were created with bantu knots that I did the night before, spritz my hair and went to bed. I took them out in the morning and they looked great.

So this is so random but today as I came into the house from a friends cookout I stood at the door looking for my keys, I felt something on the back of my neck but I just assumed it was my hair blowing in the wind, well I went into the house and I was washing my hands in the bathroom and I saw my hair slightly move I looked a little bit closer and there was this huge bug in my hair!!!! Needless to say I let out a shriek that rattle the house and was heard for blocks to come. I brush it out and sent it to meet it maker.

While traveling I took these pics from the plane, I love flying. It is so relaxing and captivating. It makes you really look at what God has created and focus on the beauty of all things. I did a lot of thinking and reflecting on this trip. About what I want out of life, who I want in my life and where I want to go. Its almost like I had a one on one session with God and it was great.

I know this post was kind of all over the place but These are the things that I have been thinking about throughout the week.

Be blessed,
Kay Exquisite.

Hey here is the style that I am currently wearing, I did it last night so my hair would be in a decent state for church. I was really attempting a lockhawk but it didn't really work out. There are a lot pictures but I figure you can look until you get tired. LOL hope you like, tell me what you think.

11 weeks

here is a hair update at 11 weeks, I have a few little balls on my hair, mainly in the middle and in the back. My hair has condensed a lot since my installation. It is a little fuller than before but not by much. As you can see there is still a lot of scalp showing in the back but I believe that is because there is a patch in the middle of my head where my hair was cut shorter than everywhere else when I got the color cut off my hair. As for my hair regimen Most days I just get up and go. Sometimes I spritz with water and essential oils but not often. Even though my hair has grown since my installation its hard for me to tell. It still looks the same to me but I know it has because of how much needed to be retightened a couple of weeks ago.

Sidebar: don't mind my swollen lips, I had just gotten a root canal and my mouth was really swollen LOL but these were the only clear pics I had with my hair out after graduation.

WoooHoooo Bless The Lord Somebody I'm Graduating!

YAY God!! In two weeks I will Be a proud graduate! I've finished all my finals and received all of my grades, I know where I'm going to grad school in the fall and everything is all good .... Pressure is way OFF

Here are the pics of my hair as promised. There's not much going on with it. It has condensed a lot and is not as springy as it used to be. Since I've noticed that I have not been doing any up dos just so I don't hinder what my hair wants to do naturally. Okay OKay so I haven't done as many up dos sheesh...

Anyway I am going through phase where I am not at all content with the size of my locks. I believe they are Way too big. I know crazy right!?! But here me out, the front is fine but the back ranges from what seems to me as mediums to large which I didn't really start to notice until my locks started to condense and and, the middle of my hair is shorter than the rest of my hair so it makes the size that much more apparent. *sigh* Alas I am going to leave things the way they are at least for six month or until my locks settle and I get some length before I make any decisions. I've read in Kalia-dewdrops blog where she had to combine some of her locks because her retightenings took forever and for various other reasons and things like that make me think and just want to wait it out because right now my consultant is a beast she tightens all my 490+ locks in under two hours, yeah buddy! But later on in life I wont be in this area and who knows if other consultants will be as proficient in expedient in their tightening sessions and what about when I start to DIY, so much to think about, but right now I am not happy, not happy at all. But I still Love Love Love my locks.
the last pics are of a style I saw on Fucshia page and it rocks it doesnt take much manipulation and I love it I believe it is my new favorite style Thx... Check out her blog at

Getting ready...

I'm getting ready for my journey,
don't really know where this road will take me
But I stand strong and hold fast to God's hand
Hoping that my stride is in line with his plan

I'm stepping out of my comfort zone
even as I return to the place I call my home
I'm facing forward and pressing toward
the mark of the one true God

I'm getting ready for my journey
and where it leads I have no clue.
But I'm leaning and trusting in God to tell me what to do.

As I face uncharted territory
I'm documenting my story
As those did who came before me
and like them another me, there will ever be

Yes I'm getting ready
Getting ready for a world that I see through Spirit filled lenses
A world ready to be explored, United and conquered

I'm getting ready to let my light so shine before men
and I know that when God calls my name for that journey to Heaven
I can and will truthfully and Gladly proclaim
