LOL! No apology necessary, I assure you! It's true that your photos were shocking but I can't say that you single-handedly scared me away from proteins. Several posters recounted their horror stories and it gradually got me to thinking that I should go easy on protein. Looking back, it was a great experience for me because it taught me -- once again -- that everybody's hair is different and that the only way to find what was right for me was to experiment for myself.

I will tell you this, though. If and when I do develop a problem with protein, I will know exactly what it looks like!

Hi - I just wanted to jump in here and share that I also have a blog in my signature. I'm so excited to read everyone's blogs. I'm a blog junkie.

Thank you! That's originally why I started my blog, to share pics of my braids and stuff. It expanded from there.

I've started one, but haven't posted anything yet. I'll let you know when it's up and going. Mine is going to be the strange combination of beauty and the law (it's called "Beauty and the Blawg").

I have a feeling it's going to end up with much more beauty () and a lot less law ().

Oh, that sounds great! Definitely let me know when you've started posting!

I started one too, about 2 weeks ago and just now finally posted something. Maybe one of these days I'll actually have a fotki too, if I could just quit taking pictures of the walls and everything else in the room but my head.
