•• 🦋 though I'm living, laughing, creating and moving forward, I am also in grief. it's been years of losing beloved souls. another loss each year. one just a few days ago. there are 5 stages of grief, but it's still a hella diffuse process. even more if the process is interrupted by another loss. but the only way out is in. this is a heads up and a reminder to myself and others who may also be conciously or unconciously trying to rid themselves of one of their heaviest feelings; I am grieving over my losses. it hurts. it's heavy. it's deep. but it deserves and demands it's time and wants to be #integrated . so I practice. I wish I knew how to grieve more efficiently, but that would just be another way of trying to escape it or make it more pleasant. it's not. it's heavy and it hurts. I resist it sometimes, because I'm scared to get lost in it. I feel like society says 'take all the time you need' but eventually demands you to be immediately back on track. I ignore that and focus on my healing. this is not a pity-post.. by no means. I just want to shed light on a very real aspect of (my) life. we're all vulnerable and to feel makes us human. I share this as a part of my healing and maybe someone elses •• I don't dwell in grief 24/7, but take time each day to sit with it. even if it's only 15 minutes. in silence, with music, a guided meditation, I write or talk about it. I walk in nature every day and meet myself on the yoga mat whenever I feel able.. a lot of traumatic energy is stored in the body. I feel it in the upper back, chest, womb and feet, so I find yoga a very helpful tool to reach and release the layers of thoughts and emotions and to deeply comfort myself. @adrienelouise yoga is my saviour 🦋 by conciously taking time to be present with grief and also including more comforting elements in my life, I'm still able to live my everyday life and go with the flow. it's somehow out of my control, but I choose my reaction. I catch myself and let myself be caught by my dear ones. this is a healing process. and I think it leads somewhere beautiful.

Got your hair plans in place ? We got you .
Donc hier au travail, une fois de plus j'ai eu le droit à une remarque sur mes cheveux. Cette fois c'était "mais qu'est ce qui s'est passé avec tes cheveux ?" tout simplement parce que je les ai détachés. Hmmm lemme explain real quick que ce sont des cheveux crépus, je ne comprendrai jamais cette curiosité que je trouve de plus en plus déplacée en 2018. #naturalhairjourney#itshardoutheretomakeitgrow#donttouchmyhair
tonight’s wash and go, featuring my new madam c.j. walker beauty culture ultra-moisturizing conditioner! parting my hair into four sections, i used my devacurl no-poo cleanser all throughout my hair, then rinsed and applied the conditioner. i did little two-strand twists throughout my hair, left it in for about 7 minutes, and then rinsed, but did leave some conditioner in the hair. even then, my hair still felt dry, which is why proceeded to use the shes moisture 10-in-1 renewal conditioner as a leave-in. i followed with the devacurl ultra defining gel and then plopped with a cotton t-shirt. i left it plopping for about 20 minutes, and then air dried. the second picture is before the wash, and my hair had been in a ponytail all day. in the rest of the pictures, my hair is about 80% dry. •
the conditioner didn’t give me mind blowing results, but it was moisturizing and smelled really good. i was having issues trying to squeeze the product out of the bottle and eventually the little plastic part inside that dispensed the product just popped off, but that could’ve been the bottle i had. all in all, the conditioner wasn’t a game changer, but i’ll post a final, finished picture of my results tomorrow!
the front of my hair has a much tighter curl pattern then the back, probably a 3a or even 3b in some parts? the back of my hair doesn’t curl AT ALL, and it always feels dry no matter what products i use :/ i’m sure it’s from all the leftover heat damage and the way i sleep on it, but i’m planning to try olaplex on the area to see if it’ll help! also, my hair in general is frizzy, which is something i just have come to terms with. •
im also sorry that the texture pictures aren’t very good, im still trying to figure out how to work the right camera angles. also, THIS POST WAS SO LONG IM SO SORRY. im working out the kinks, but im super excited to have finally started to carry out my passion!
