Well, here I am...I took my braids out and relaxed yesterday (It's 2:11am now). I'm so dissappointed. I expected more growth, but it broke off pretty badly. *sigh * I won't fret...I won't fret. Just care it, wear protective styles and just...keep at it...
So, I wrapped my hair...wore it under a scarf (I have to invest in a silk one) and woke up, combed it out...it looks so much better! I have church tonight, so I'm wearing it in a high pony tail. Everything looks longer! Maybe the roller set curls dropped?They say when your hair isn't shoulder length yet, sometimes the friction of the clothes causes split ends when it brushes against the clothes! I don't want too tight of one (i'm using one of those ones with the metal clasp) so I don't have back breakage!
Found a nice, simple protective style I'll be rocking for a while: A fold under, where I pull it in a low pony tail, and instead of actually making the pony tail, I do a fold under and secure with clips.. I like it better than the pony tail, since I was worried about using that as a constant protective style and having nape breakage due to tension.
Anyhow, brought some peppermint oil to add to my homemade MTG...Ooh, it TINGLES!!! Feels nice.
I broke up with Dustin last night...why? He's my other half! He was heartbroken...I am heartbroken, too. I'm so depressed, I don't know what to do. *sigh* And today, his best friend is dragging him with her to the airport to pick up her boyfriend that she's known for what, 3 months? Lovely. I miss him so much.
As for hair, I've been taking my vitamins almost religiously, meaning just about every day. On the day I skipped, I added an extra biotin. I feel growth already! LOL. Perhaps I'm mad. <3333
I'm about to go wash, and take pictures of it wet. Hope it comes out ok...
Ok, we didn't stay broken up. *sigh* How could I think I could live without this boy? He's my everything! And my hair came out ok as well! <3333 Well, I'm about to go shower/wash.
It's air drying under my head scarf. I hate air drying. The ends are folded under and clipped in place, just like how I wear my protective style.
Well, here I am, worried sick. My boyfriend is in Missouri, you seem, and I haven't any idea what to do. He's been knocked almost out cold by a fallen tree branch, walked home in pitch blackness, almost being killed, avoiding looters...Oh God above, and now, last night, he had pain in his kidneys!! I had to CALL his house TWICE just to reach his mum's boyfriend. Oh, they were "in the bedroom," screwing no less...and told him to please, PLEASE tell Dustin's mum what was going on. Dustin called back...my boy was in so much pain. I hope to GOD that his mum took him seriously.
As for hair, it seems to be growing. I joined the "hide your hair till April fools" challenge. :( Those who read it and can reach God in prayer, please pray for Dustin and all of Missouri and those other places hit by this ice storm! Please...
Phone rang. Picked it up. Was greated by kisses on the other side. He's HOME!!! Thank GOD above, he's home!!!! The best thing to disrupt a fantasy of you and someone else getting married is that very someone calling you and letting you know they are ok. <333333333
Well...whenever Ros comes to get me, we'll head to the doctor's. Had another coughing fit last night. Now I'm sneezing!!! >.< Ugh. But he's home and safe. That's all that counts!
Hello, all. Haven't updated in a while. Well, my hair seems to be growing! I'm sticking my hand all in the roots and I'm feeling a lot of new growth, even in the back. That's the place that seemsto grow slower. Maybe not, the texture is just different and it's harder to tell the line between straight and wavy, vs straight and coarse in the middle/sides.
I stopped taking my vitamins since I was on antibiotics and they would have affected how the antibiotics worked. So, tonight, right back on it! Blah. Codliver OIL!!!! ;-; Good for skin and hair, though. Oh, no picture updates until April! I'm still hiding my hair!!
Tomorrow is the day. Enough is ENOUGH. I'm getting mah hurr did. LOL. I'm over due for a relaxer(almost 3 months) I'm all for stretching and I think I did great with it, but you also need to like...have the means to maintain it without breakage and I'm still learning. :]
I ORDERED BOUNDLESS TRESSES! I can't wait to get it and get awesome results! Eeeee!! By the time I go to Missouri to see my Dusty, I'll be swanging my hair!!
Bible school graduation is tomorrow, so of course, I wanna look on POINT. Got my hair done at the salon today! ^_^ However, since I'm relaxing at the end of June for my Convention trip, I decided to just wait it out until then and get a wash and set. WOW, the washer, Nani was totally like all up in my scalp feeling the newgrowth! She wanted me to get a perm, but washed it anyway when I told her I was not too long post relaxer. She said "Two weeks, Mami!" but June is a lot farther away than that!
Anyway, My hair is so THICK, I love it! I don't know, BT may have worked, I ran out before I could tell...but I really, REALLY started noticing growth with the MN!! I mixed it with the remainder of my BT, then when that ran out, mixed it with nature's blessings hair pomade. and castor oil. Wow. It's WORKING. My scalp looked like it was 3 months post! I am not even 2 yet. I wonder what I'll look like come June?
TONIGHT I start my vitamin regimen again! I WILL have significant growth by June's end! And I will post pics. ;] How awesome that the LHCF challenges I'm on fall in place with my upcoming trips! :D
Anyway, I got a blow out (only the newgrowth) and it looks really nice!! I'd post pics, but I'm hiding mah hurr from you ladies until Jun! HHG!
:) Well...next week is the anual church convention to N.C. I'm a bit excited...My hair will be relaxed next Tuesday. So sad, as so as I typed that, I got an itchy! I'm trying not to scratch! haha.
I've SUCKED with my vitamin regimine. :/ But I'll be adding home made carrot juice/apple along with biotin, MSM, Vitamin C (for better MSM absorbtion) and Codliver oil! That should be good.
I ran out of BT. I *think* it worked. Not sure. But the miconozole is doing pretty well!! I think when I'd mixed it with the drainings of BT, I had weird growth! But I can't even find my sulfer. :( So I mixed sulfur 8 in with the mixture. Washing my hair on Friday and won't be using the mixture again (to be on the safe side) until AFTER my relaxer. They better not cut my hair. I won't let them! That's how I got IN this situation in the FIRST place!!
How strange. Last entry was from me going to the convention last year in N.C and now I JUST got back an hour shy of midnight Monday this week. :)
Alls well. Engaged to my love first day of summer (he's moved here, dropped it all to be with me. No more ice showers!!). I'm getting married, yall!
November 15th. Happy with hair growth. Still taking pictures. :)
