Just a quick check in with justkinkinit online doppelgänger

Hey guys,
While this is just a quick post please know more posts are in the pipeline. Sometimes I feel like there aren't enough hours in the day to do all the things I need and want to do but I mean so well! Besides, I have a wealth of content and information to share!
Ok ok.
Remember, back in October I discovered there was a twitter with my domain name? While no one ever officially approached me about it rather than a weird tweet (which i had to initiate contact) read here in case you missed that blurb.
I wanted a dialog but that didn't happen. They just stopped tweeting then would start back up. Well I discovered the group now has a website an they have stopped officially communication thru twitter.
So while I am just opening up JKI's twitter of private, you can find me @justkinkinitcom where I think Ill do more updates about my hair and things that peak my intrest in the twitterverse.
I do wish them success as I have said before we are apart of the same movement. Just wish there was a dialog.

In looking to switch up my haircare routine for the new year I ran across some great links. I go on long googling searches or Wikipedia strains alot. lol It's like one thing leads to another and that leads to another and so on. I feel like that joke from Aziz Ansari about wasting time on the internet lol I originally sat down to finish up one of my short stories but I am here blogging.

Ok back to it,
In searching for first, Silk Elements Curl Defining Mouse at Sally's which led to Trader Joe’s Nourish Spa which I've heard before I then did a search for haircare at wholefoods and found this:

6 Tips for Natural African-American Hair


1Know your type. Curly hair comes in many shapes and sizes. Your routine should be calibrated to your curl diameter (tight, kinky or wavy), texture (fine or coarse) and type (dry, normal or oily).
2Assess your shampoo schedule. To preserve your hair’s natural moisture, consider using conditioner to cleanse the scalp and reducing shampoo to once every third time you wash your hair.
3Change it up. Don’t be afraid to experiment with different curl setting techniques — such as scrunching, ribboning or twisting — and different drying methods, including air drying or blow drying with a diffuser.
4Remember: curl likes moisture and friends. For smooth, beautiful curls, style wet hair with a gel or styling lotion that will hold strands together.
5Do not disturb. Don’t mess with your damp styled hair! Once it’s fully dry, if it feels a little crispy, you can scrunch to soften.
Argan Oil 6Keep it fresh. If you have coarse hair and tight curls, keep your scalp feeling fresh with rosemary or lavender essential oil. Pour a few drops on your fingertips and massage directly into the scalp.
