Today's hair

I had an idea to tuck in the ends of my braids when I do a crown wrap.

Hair is in two Dutch braids...

I wrapped the braids around, tucked them under themselves, then pulled slightly to keep the wrap tight.
Then used a small elastic to tie the two braids to each other at the ends.

Twisted the two braids together.

Pushed a Ron Quattro pin through the braids near the elastic.

And tucked everything under the braids.
Good thing my ends are thin enough that a little "bun" like that can be hidden under the braids, haha (Cry)

I really liked it.

Quite smooth to look at, with none of the usual hair sticks to hold everything up.

This is with CC cream and cushion foundation. Ouch.
When you are so sensitive to an ingredient that you also need to check the ingredient list on your partners products.... Sigh.
It turned out that the reason the skin around my mouth has been freaking out the last week is Hubby's new shampoo (That he also uses to clean his beard) which contains aloe vera.

(Actually it's not as simple as "I'm allergic to aloe vera", because I'm allergic to the skin of aloe vera. So if the aloe vera has been peeled first as opposed to squeezed whole, I can tolerate it. Of course this is not something that is mentioned on the products. Ever. So it's trial and error for me. For instance, one of my old timey favorite product lines Secretkey's Snail Repairing line contains aloe vera and I didn't know until after I started using i. I just prefer not to gamble on my luck with aloe in products.)

Stuhr hair protection spray

You thought I was kidding about this SPF spray for hair, didn't you?

I don't mess around when it comes to sun protection.

So now I have one in my shoulderbag and one in my bathroom.
