  1. Mid-Year Check in July (2012) - Transitioning and Growing

    This month, I'm committed to getting back to what works. I started my hair journey with relaxed SL (maybe 1.5-2" above apl) hair. My ultimate goal is HL natural hair. I think my natural hair is apl, just above bsl hair. That's just from eyeballing it tho.

    The first year of my journey (2010), I focused on length and grew to grazing WL. 2011 started off with a setback. My mother passed away and I spent several months stressed and neglecting my hair. During this time, I was ...

  2. Week 3 -Go hard challenge

    Ok, so I haven't been going as hard as I would have thought, especially in the fitness area.

    I finally removed those lashes that I had done at the nail salon. I won't be doing them anymore. They look awesome but are murder to get off. I lose lashes in the takedown everytime. But now that they're off, I'm applying a jbco and SAA mix to get them to grow and thicken. And I'm taking up wearing falsies that use the normal lash glue. I wore some last night at our fight party ...
  3. Week 2 - 30-day Go Hard Challenge

    Ok, so technically I'm in my 2nd week. I started my 30 days on May 21st, which was hubby's birthday. Here is my original post regarding my goals for this challenge:

    My Go Hard goals:

    Hair: This is a tricky one. My goal is to grow at least +1" and be just past HL so that when I do my 1" cut on the 23rd, I'll be solidly HL.
    Now the tricky part about this is that I'm not quite sure where my hair is today. And I've been trying not to length check the
  4. Update -- March 28, 2012

    Hello Divas. Checking in today, still dealing with pollen and these allergies but, feeling much better than the past few weeks.

    Saturday night, I decided to detangle and put my hair in mini twists. Well, it's been 4 days and I still have 1/4 of my hair to do. I'm basically dry finger detangling (with coconut oiled fingers, that is) to remove sheds and tangles. Then I spray each small section that I'm working with (water, aloe vera juice and veggie glycerin) and comb thru first, ...
  5. 4" in 16 weeks and update

    First let me say, these seasonal allergies have been kicking my butt over the past two weeks. So I haven't been updating or doing much of anything to my hair. But, as much as possible, I have been massaging my scalp oil at least every other day and trying to moisturize and seal regularly. I've been heavily medicated to treat cold symptoms, a sinus infection and crushing sinus headaches. I did get in a couple cowashes and, regrettably, tried Suave Keratin Infusion conditioner and TRESemme Split ...
