Mega Bus Review — August 31, 2016

Mega Bus Review

I took Megabus for a girls weekend. We Traveled from Pittsburgh, PA to Washington, DC on a Friday and returned to Pittsburgh Monday.

The start of my trip I sat on my suitcase outside the Convention Center, which is a covered megabus  stop, waiting for the bus. There were some other passengers that made me nervous and I was happy when my friends showed up. We reserved seats on the second level of the doubt decker bus in the front. The seats were numbered and had seat belts. There weren’t very comfortable and were covered in plastic material, only the reserved seats were this way the other seats appears to be cloth, and you kinda slid around on the seat. We stopped at WVU to pick up and drop off. The bus never filled up. We stopped at a rest stop in Maryland that had a gas station and Arby’s, there was a stop down the road with more options and this rest stop was lacking.

Arriving in DC at Union Station went well. I picked up my bag and we headed inside and meet our friend.

The trip back the bus was nearly empty an we all had our own row. We stopped at the same lacking rest stop. But overall uneventful.

The bus on the way to DC was cold soon cold the drive put duct tape over some of the outlets, which didn’t really help (thought that counts though lol).

The DC Megabus staff seemed rude, we were waling away from the bus and staff opened another bus door and almost hit me in the face and then we had to walk all the way around.

Upon boarding the bus from DC to Pittsburgh we had no line , we noticed the above window was shattered. I was afraid if we hit a bump glass would rain down everywhere ( I didn’t move my seat because my chronic brokeness made a lawsuit sound like a great idea lol). Well it held up.

Overall it wasn’t terrible, we arrived safe and on time and no one died. For the price we paid I say it went well.

Yarn Cornrow Review — June 9, 2016
To Much Color, Blues… —

To Much Color, Blues…

Since being relaxer free over the past 4 years I thought I was able to color my hair as often as I wished, any color I choose. I thought only one chemical so my hair will be fine. In the summer of 2015 I said “bleach, why not ? I can probably obtain a vibrant blond I want” I did obtain that color but at a cost.

It was the first time and only time bleaching my hair and it turned out okay once i added the color over the bleach job. It was a lot of processing to the hair and I noticed my texture loosened in the front, the only place I bleached. Well I went ahead with life enjoying my color and all and come fall I wanted a protective style. I put in yarn braids per usual and loved them. Upon taking them out I had a lot of thinning and breaking in the front of my hair it was also brittle and dry. UGH- Not again I refuse to do another big chop.

I followed the advice of a stylist and covered my hair a darker color, he said it would stop the breakage to go darker or closer to my natural color and I did, but breakage continued. I used protective styles to grow my hair out and cut the damaged ends as it grew. However it was still thin in spots.

Recently I purchased Proclaim color repair shampoo and conditioner and it seems to be helping, along with gentle care and TLC.

I will never bleach my hair again and won’t recommend it, my hair is still colored but now I use semi-permanent rather than more harsh colorants.

Know Your Hair Porosity — May 28, 2016

Know Your Hair Porosity

I never cared about my hair porosity, because for what ? lol. Just another way to type hair, so i thought. However I noticed product sits on my hair not in it and no matter how much I washed it was never really clean and my scalp was always all goopy, I don’t know how hair grew under these circumstances but it did. I did a porosity test and learned I had low porosity hair, meaning it was difficult to open the pores to let product and moisture in but once in it stayed… FOREVA. I found that a clarifying shampoo would be best to clean my hair, and after 30 min in Target I found it and it worked. I also learned I needed heat to open up my pores when conditioning my hair. My hair feels and looks so much better now that I properly care for it. It has come in thicker and longer. So testing your hair’s porosity isn’t a waste of time after all.
