Length Check 08.17.2010

I’m back from vacay!  It was amazing!  Loved every minute of it and wished I could stay longer.  But back to reality I had to come. My apologies, I had every intention of blogging while on vacation, but the internet at the hotel was hardly working. After my last relaxer I promised to post photos of my hair.  I didn’t have a chance to do it before leaving on vacation, but I was able to snap some photos while vacationing in...

Severe Hair Breakage

This is really a relaxer update but bear with me…I have to deviate a bit to share my frustrations.   Last relaxer day was very disappointing for me 🙁  So disappointing that it took me six days to get into the mind set to compose this post.

Freshly Relaxed 02.03.2010

My new growth had some serious attitude so I had to lay that to rest. Combing was close to impossible without making my scalp extremely sore so I thought it best to relax early instead of making a bad situation worse by trying to stretch longer. I relaxed yesterday at 9 weeks and 2 days. For those of you following the blog, you know that I’m having some unexplainable excessive shedding. Still don’t know the culprit for...

Freshly Relaxed

I got my relaxer today!  It was definitely time…my hair was singing to me.   The relaxer itself went fairly well..I got a couple burns and I also got a corrective relaxer to correct those under-processed parts.  Turns out my hair was more kinky than straight so my stylist went over all of my hair with relaxer but before you scream that she’s whacko to do that, let me explain how she did it. First she did my roots, so the...
