um..i just did an impromptu length check.....and my hair is touching mbl i'm like 2/3 inches from waist!!!!! now to take care of my edges....even though they've been pretty awesome lately. i've been experimenting (actually being lazy and letting my hair get frizzy and lose definition) more with my hair being less defined, and i've been pretty happy.
i cannot live without my aviators, my boston terrier, biology and black tights.
I know it's not true...but I can't help but think my deep conditioning routine is throwing off the balance in the universe...or at least my neighborhood.

The week before last while DC'ing, the water was turned off because a pipe burst in my complex...then when the water came back on, my faucet broke in the kitchen and the Poseidon Adventure proceeded thereafter.

(Thankfully I was up wayyyy past my bedtime to catch this early enough to prevent major damage...or my whole apt would've been toast)

Saturday night I'm once again DC'ing and watching Law & Order SVU (what a nerdy Saturday night!)--and the lights go out. In one half of my APARTMENT COMPLEX.

I'm almost afraid to see what's going to happen next weekend....

I'm only about an inch away from having all my chemical color out of my hair. Not sure if I'll ever put color in my hair again, most likely not.

Just did a trim today because my ends are feeling a little crispy.
this is some great gel!
Girls, I need to vent. It's about my mother and my hair.

I've been natural for a few years now. Just like most of our mothers, my mom wasn't very supportive/pleased when I decided to chop off my relaxed ends and go natural. But eventually she got around to it and has been supportive about my hair. Except for lately.

Lately she's been saying some rude/uneducated comments about my hair and it's really bringing me down. For example, she has suggested getting blow outs to "train" my hair to go straigher. Or I've been wearing my hair in twist outs lately and you know what she told me? She said that maybe I should go to the salon to "get something done" (aka texturizer) to my hair so I can have a looser curl pattern all the time.


Seriously Mom? Don't you remember how unhealthy my hair was when I used to chemically/heat treat it? Don't you remember my bad scalp and neck eczema caused by the relaxers? Don't you remember how brittle my hair was, all you needed to do was run your fingers through it and CHUNKS of hair would break off?

The only thing I can think of is jealousy. My mom has 2b/2c hair and always made me feel like my hair was "bad" and "unmanageable" while growing up. Her hair was always easier to manage, just a rounded brush and blow dryer and her hair looked straight and pretty. But in the past couple of years, she's been getting blow outs on a weekly basis and flat ironing throughout the week for touch-ups. Not to mention dying her hair all the time too. Her hair looks FRIED! Her hair is starting to break off. Me on the other hand, my hair has never looked healthier. It looks beautiful, lots of shine, moisturized, hardly any hair fall outs, and my curls look great.

Ugh.
Hair type: Mostly 3C, medium porosity to high porosity depending on the day, dense, fluffy, dry, tangly!

On the other hand I'm bored at work. I got plenty of work to do I just don't feel like doing it.

I think I am regretting my BC. I BCed wednesday night and I went to visit a college in Iowa. I wore my hair pinned up in the back with the sides flat twisted and the front/crown curly. I recieved no negativity whatsoever, some looks but that about it.

I felt really good but my aunt said "oo see you got that good quality hair" running her fingers through it. Later she said "what ever you doing to your hair keep it up, its so nice and manageable, you dont have that KINKY COURSE hair your hair is CURLY"

that pissed me off but i didnt say anything b/c she's my elder. She's natural for goodness sake and I just realized from that that she is heat training her hair b/c when she wears it curly it looks like waves and Im noticing that she is flat ironing more often. That made me really sad and sorry that even when she looks at herself the way she is she still cant see beauty.

the other thing that pissed me off is I asked my mom if she thought some people have better hair than others and she said " yeah like there's better QUALITIES and GRADES of hair." !!! I was going to ask her to explain but I was trying to hold back my tears. I could already imagine what she had to say on the topic.

The final thing is taht me and my friend were walking outside and some people in a car laughed at my me. I had the sides flattwisted, a wet twist out in the back and front and bow head band. My hair was pretty, i thought, and it made me want to cry. I didnt but I just felt like crap the whole rest of the day.


This made me splurge and buy:
  • aloe vera gel
  • jojoba oil
  • vitamin e oil
  • suave naturals coconut conditioner

LOIS: OS, thin, dense, cottony

can't believe that I can finally sorta put my hair up with something other than bobby pins

can't wait until I can do a decent ponytail, bun or roll. still years away. arrgggh!

having thick and short hair is a PITA beyond the TWA/BC zone.

i rarely use my denman anymore. fingers all the way.

I'm loving my 2nd day WnG. I feel like I'm passing as one of you sistas that was blessed with thick tresses.
I hate that my hair is longer and thicker in the back. But my front just won't catch up with the back. This is so frustrating
I hate that my hair is longer, grows faster and shrinks less at the top.I am tired of waiting for the back to catch up.

However, for some odd reason I am having a fantastic hair day. Shampoo'd this morn, immediately ran hands thru hair (this scared me so bad I got out of the shower thinking I had none left lol), very little shedding and quick shingling of products thru the hair. I am about to SOTC @ my desk. I am thankful for this...my whole day has started out on such a pleasant note.

I use clips to keep my hair piled high in loose sections so the ends will get steam. The steam will penetrate throughout the hair. I adore steaming...and must do it this weekend since I was too lazy last weekend.

The twists I did last month were worth it.

They have an insecurity in them selves and the only way they can release it is to demean you to make themselves feel .2% better. I would have went up to them and said here's a closer look, laugh to make your bald head behind feel better.
