The flat ironed hair poofed in less than an hour from the rain, even though I wasn't in the rain ...the moisture in the air did its job. Sunny outside...then the heat came and the sweat felt like I was wearing a hat. I braided it down....freehand, no comb so some of the parts are uneven but that's ok...its cool and comfy.

...and 20 mins later...it poofed up! Mom was witness. Haha mid-sentence she goes, "...wow...looking right at you and still not believing I'm seeing it." As it had started raining outside annd my hair became a big round bush. Haha curly happens!

Second attempt at the Peacock Swirl...successful! Small change: I changed the fo and remade the comb, used the same colors except for one...that color was replaced. What a difference. Its still a Silk and Chocolate blend and it looks amazing!
I tried to vid it but the camera had issues and I had no time to wait for it...if it shows up in the cache...I'll retrieve it, in the meantime...enjoy the pictures.

The base came out pure white and refused to comb thru the other colors. The other colors gathered en-mass and nearly overboard the mold....so I smooth and swirled it and left the comb alone. I know what happened...the fo said "slight acceleration....but I didn't count on a thickening with the speed up. Well...I've used that scent twice.....the sunset swirl where the thickening actually helped as I was floating a round enbed into a square loaf....and this time....where I totally forgot it does that.
Well...the remix will still be silk and chocolate.........cuz up until that point it was awesome and no cramped hands which means the squeeze bottles are a keeper. The only thing diff will be the fo. The tried and true cherry overload. The comb has been remade even though the change in fo renders making a new one unneccessary.......planing for he big picture from the land of "whatif" as that's a territory fought with issues. The only problem I've ever hand with the cherry overload....it will ash if used in excess with heat. Ex: the cpop Spectrum....it was the las in the bottle and I said "heck with it...more won't hurt" ....the hot processed Purple Passion...did the same thing...and was nose blind for a week on top of it. As least I know going in...that's NO a good idea. Hahaha therefor...moderate amount of the tried and true fo, duplicate recipe, etc...and its a go!
There may be differences on the colors but all and all....its gonna be as close to the original attempt...only with a forseeable success. I admit I do like the 2tone the base lended to the silk and cocolate as it does very much remind me of a chocolate bar. The cure will be 4 weeks. So see me at the end of August to get your hands on this one.
