About Me:
I never had hair past my shoulders... It made it to my shoulders and nothing more. To grow it... I followed myth#1 and cut my hair into a short Rihanna short bob and it just hung there damaged. I hated it. My Journey started since the fall of 2009. I have a 4 b/c hair texture that grows slower than the average heads and my hair finally sits just at APL. Hardest parts of the journey is dealing with my ng, I cant stretched past 12 weeks and retaining length. My hair is protein sensitive and seems to always lack moisture. I take breaks all the time from my journey... Being plain ol' lazy but ever since learning whats good and not so good for relaxed treated hair, I stick to a simple regimen.

GOT a Weave

by Sweet_Intent on 10-20-2011 at 03:43 PM

And Iam really happy with it

My Strategy is to hide my hair this entire winter
and Massage that wonderful sulfur mix into my scalp a few times a weeks
For optimal Growth

I will take breaks in between installments
But go right back to the weave

MOM did this when I was younger... Hide my hair in braids then as I got older she hid them under tracks so I know that my hair doesnt mind

shoulder-length plateau

by Sweet_Intent on 10-13-2011 at 10:22 AM
Iam over it... Ive been an inch from APL to lose it

Cant beleive Iam still here at shoulder length... Gets me MAD

I have to get over this hump.... this plateau and reach APL and Beyond


Iam sure that the issue has been my hair porosity

Low Porosity sucks

It refuses to let any moisture in

So I get stuck with dry straw-like brittle pads for hair

in need of a Porosity Control treatment

by Sweet_Intent on 09-19-2011 at 10:57 AM
Breakage, UGGHH, Why do I lose so much hair?

Makes me want to scream n just go ahead n pull all my hair out

No matter how much moisture n conditioning I apply to my hair its always so dry
and when its wet, its gummy n gross

My hair doesnt really like oils either... I think it just sits on the strands, doesnt absorb.

Protein-Sensitive. Hair will get so hard n so stiff....equals breakage.

Relaxer @12Weeks

by Sweet_Intent on 08-24-2011 at 12:28 PM
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

Shedding really BAD

by Sweet_Intent on 08-08-2011 at 06:08 PM
I can never stretch my relaxers too long

My NG tangle and interlock all around each other

I did my garlic oil treatment a few days back and I was suppose to take the time to do another one this weeknd but didnt get the time too <were talking about garlic here>

So my stretch has come to an end... I will be relaxing very soon at just 12weeks.
