  1. Relaxer @12Weeks

    First.... I will not be stretching for that long again. At Least not until I can learn to detangle and deal with my dry n coarse NewGrowths.

    What Ive been doing is after either washes or co-washes... I detangle in the shower just fine and apply my leave-ins. Hair lays flat and NewGrowths are soft for the next day or two. As the days go on, I keep my hair looking neat while Its a jungle underneath and continue on.


    I had a braid-out/ twist-out the last ...

  2. Getting back on track

    Ok, now that my detangling mayhem is behind me, it's time to get back on track. THAT was the wake up call that I needed to really get back on track with my hair care.

    Let me back up. For the entire first quarter of this year, I was at my mother's side, at least 13 hours a day, until she passed away from cancer in March. During that time, I put everything on hold -- my hair, my health, my family, everything. And being deep into what turned out to be a 38 week stretch, that meant no ...

    Hi ladies! Just wanted to let you guys know what's on my mind right now.

    1) Today, I am 11 weeks and 2 days post. It's been a long time since I've stretched more than 10 weeks and I don't see a hair appointment in my future any time soon. This is mainly due to my schedule with the babies. I definitely want to get a relaxer before my son's first bday which is September 14th. Thankfully, I'm not having any trouble with my newgrowth.

  4. My Journey To Now Part 2

    And I clearly heard God say----" That is Your husband." And this really depressed me. For days I kept asking why.

    I had recorded the sermons, and I kept replaying them. And listening to new sermons. And I learned about God. I used to read the bible when I was younger. I knew and loved the stories. But once I grew up I stopped believing. Because I thought God was mean, and angry, and revengeful. And I didn't want to believe in a God that was like that.

    But

  5. My journey to Now

    A series of sermons about marriage brought me back to God. Last year all I wanted was a divorce. I thought about it hourly. I dreamed about being in the courtroom. I imagined what it would feel like to be free. I only wanted to talk to my husband, if it was about divorce. Divorce was the promised land for me.

    Then one day I happened to catch a minister on t.v speaking about marriage. In 5 sermons, he spoke about the hardships his marriage had been through. He spoke about hating
