In new news

Hope your week is starting off well. Spring is finally here!!!! This coming up weekend is Easter Sunday and I get to go home and do a little celebrating. My family always goes out for breakfast the weekend of my grandma's birthday, which is this one, so I get to see all my fam!!! Also, I get to go admire my new nephew...at only a month old number 9 already has such a personality.

Protective Styling? As much as I love wearing my hair in a puff I need to keep up my protective styling for many reasons. One reason being....I'm working out again! Yea I fell off the wagon last year but Im hopping back on with hopes of losing my tummy. I plan on doing cowashes or rinses(with only water) after my workouts. Also, I have to tell you about my little nightmare. So after three weeks I washed my straighten hair. Let me add it was my first time straightening since being natural. After my first wash my hair felt HORRIBLE. It felt brittle and my curls that I love so much were a hot mess. After complaining to my bestie she enlightened me with the knowledge that I needed to wash my hair a few times for it restore all the way to my natural state...whewww so I thought. At the time, I wasn't at home and I had virtually no products with me. I took a trip to Sally's and bought a moisturizer that I had never used. Thankfully it did the job. Sadly, my hair and texture still doesn't look exactly normal but it feels hydrated. Also, I promised myself that I will be serious about moisturizing . So nightly, I section my hair then moisturize, apply butter, and a light oil. I can already tell a big difference. Now, I'll I have to do is decide on what protective style I want to do for Easter. HHG.

Out from Hiding

Hey everyone. I've been really bad and Im sorry. I keep saying that I will stop my large posting gaps but it hasn't happened yet. I've been so caught up and haven't had any spare time.
Catch up:
I got my hair straightened in February and it turned out pretty good.
My old stylist tried to convince me to get my hair straightened every two months....hmm soo not happening. She also had a really rough time trying to detangle my hair...that must have been from me going over a year with combing hahaha. She has convinced me to comb my hair at least every month or so I can make sure I get all of shed hair out. I've had it straightened for three weeks now with no extra heat which was typical when I was relaxed. I plan to wash it within the next week.

In other news, I'm about to iron out my hair regime and make it solid. I'm still thinking about eliminating shampoo from my washing routine...not positive yet. I have been completely absent from the natural hair world that I was so obsessed with before. I might poke my head back in the scene soon.

After my trip to the salon my APL goal of May(I don't remember the exact month) has been delayed :( I can't blame it on the salon my ends were crappy which was my own fault. So my new APL goal is set to September.

Gotta head to class.

I'll be back soon :)
