  1. Ok, I should've updated by now...true.

    After the drama with my hair knotting and cutting out the knots, my hair has been behaving and actually feels pretty good. I've decided not to BC and to continue transitioning until the end of the year.

    Today, I have my hair in chunky twists and am really feeling Hair Crush-ish. I mean, my twists finally have the thickness that I've wanted since seeing you tube's Hair Crush. As always, I'm tempted to chop my relaxed ends, mainly because they're so obvious. But also because I think ...

  2. It's setback time!

    Sooooooooo, I knotted my hair beyond recognition. Well, back quarter, actually. I tried for days, if not over a week, to get rid of the tangles and knots. But, we know that knots are a lot worse than simple tangling.

    It was really my fault actually, and I knew better. I started detangling my hair and putting my detangled hair in twists. My hair was full of conditioner for the detangling. I got tired and decided to braid my twists AND the still tangled hair so that my hair would ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. End of Challenge

    Well, I had a wonderful birthday. We took the kids out of town for an extended weekend. I tried to flat iron my hair to wear it out for hubby, since he says I never wear it out. It was puffier than I expected but, that's a combo between the thickness of my natural hair and being paranoid about burning my hair. Since I burned a section the night before, I only did 1 pass on most of my strands. Even so, it looked fine and felt awesome!

    I started using CO nightly while on ...

  5. Week 4 - Go Hard Challenge

    So, this is the final week of my 30-day Go Hard Challenge and I must say... I didn't go as hard could've over the past few weeks. Particularly in the workout section. But this final week, I also don't see myself doing much in the workout section. I didn't factor in summertime with the kids. We're all over the place and I really just won't have time to get to the gym consistently. But, I am doing better with cleaning up my eating, upping my protein (don't know if that's a good idea ...
