Default Anyone need a buddy? (last relaxer Aug 2008)...

I am looking for a buddy because this is MUCH harder than I anticipated and I'm going to need someone to kick me in the bottom every now and then.

I am very much in the learning stages or natural hair care and welcome any and all input.

Anyone up for the challenge? LOL

My last relaxer was August 8th 2008 and I hope that it stays that way FOREVER!

Thanks!

I am wearing it in a bun mostly. That is the easiest way for me to limit the frustration, LOL.

How are you wearing your "DO"?

I was thinking around Oct. 17, which would make almost exactly a year of transitioning...but it really depends on if I feel like I can hold out longer than that,lol

Default Holding on...

I know what you mean about holding on. I don't want to chop too soon but I also want to have enough hair to "do" something with, lol.

This is where patience comes in handy, lol!

I'll just have to take care of my hair and wait it out I guess.

I am still trying to create a "system" or regimen but considering I've purchased darn near everything for "natural" hair I have to weed through all of it now.

I REALLY should have considered that when filling up my closet, lol!

How are you doing on the product front?

I actually haven't started shopping for natural hair products yet. I don't know think i'll start anytime soon though, but I do plan to have them sometime before I BC, so I'll keep u posted on my product buys until then.

Smile Hi Ladies...I would love to join you..

My last relaxer was July 15, 2008. I'm transitioning with a weave. I'm presently using Qhemet Amla & Olive - Heavy Cream to moisturize (I love this product). I sometimes use pure almond and coconut oil for my scalp. My regimen will consist of co-washing and a good hydrating leave-in conditioner.

My last relaxer was July 3, 2008. I'm trying to hold on the BC at least until Nov of this year. Right now I have kinky twists in my hair.

Welcome!

Do you have a tentative chop date yet?

Have you tried any of the other Qhemet products yet?

Welcome!

I see you have a date in mind... how exciting!
How are you doing with the kinky twists? I thought about getting some but my hair dries out something awful with braids. Perhaps these are different....

Welcome, welcome, welcome new transitioning buddy!

I am still bunning - not sure what else to do, lol- and so far so good. I do worry that I'm putting too much strain on my hair.

How did you bun?

This is the first time I have had kinky twists. I'm so proud of myself I put them in myself after watching YOUtube videos. Overall, my hair is doing pretty good...I've been spraying an olive oil mix in my hair to keep it moisturized...and its working .
