day 4&5

Day 4&5: No new updates still wrapped up.
Day 6(today 12/18)- The day I'm getting my hair done. For right now I will unbraid my hair and pull it back in a band. I will walk out all twisted out. Here are the updates

While I was getting my hair done, the students at Paul Mitchell was complementing my hair and saying how they want to have my texture. that made me happy and my beautician said the same thing. Im glad she's natural and has experence cause she can relate and knows how to take care of it. While she was washing it with Tea Tree shampoo, it felt like it was clarifying my hair. I love getting my hair washed.

It was funny how while I was getting my hair twisted, ppl (mostly white) were amazed how my hair could maintain the twists and they wanted to know how to twist hair. My beautician explained to them. They were really open minded. Proved to me that education is key. and One guy was like "can I touch your hair" I'm a sucker for ppl touching my hair so i let him. He was shocked how my hair can look short one min and long another min ( he gently pulled a twist)

Here are the after results:

My beautician hooked it up, and i have been getting compliments. I like student schools they are cheaper and the environment is different. I support GiGi (my beautician)

day three is the way to be

I'm not even going to lie, I look forward in posting blogs. I can see why people get addicted to these things. I may have to use those to my advantage lol. Okay back to Hair basics.

I still have my hair styled in big braids- I moisturized it with the spritz that I created and kept it in a wrap. Even though its my last day at my internship 2maro, I don't feel like styling my hair or taking out the braids. So I am going to wear my head wrap and a hat :D can't go wrong with that. Just waiting to get my hair done at the Paul Mitchell School in Orlando. When it came to my hair getting done at a salon (since being natural) I think I only went 5 times in the last four years.... whoa I guess I am real lazy when it comes to pampering myself lol.

One main benefit about student schools is that it is 10x cheaper than regular salons. I also took my multivitamins and fish oil pills. When i was doing that religiously, i noticed better improvement with my health and hair. and I'm trying to join the water challenge. water is essential to the soul :D. Thats all for now

12/14/09-extended version

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^My trouble spot^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^.

I noticed something, I have a "trouble spot". My friend braided my hair and I think she braided too tight around the left front edges. I am focusing on re-growing that spot. When I measured it, it was at 3-4 inches when the avg hair size around the front is 7-8 in. With my hair, it shows thickness more so than length but since I took care of it(from last year) I did notice a difference. It's more moisturized and barely any dandruff :)

So far with my hair journey, I am really paying attention on what my hair likes. It really likes coconut oil and this spritz that I created thanks to Dablacklady from np

My Spritz consists of:

V05 Moisture Milks-Passion Fruit Smoothie, Parachute "100%pure" Coconut oil

What I would do is: I would put like 2-4 squirts
of V05, like 5-7 squirts of Parachute and fill up the squirt bottle with water and shake it up :D thats my spritz concoction. I thought it would be alot harder but I didn't know making Spritz would be easy.

I need to get back on taking my multivitamins and fish oil pills. Also, I got a fauxman brush (Wanna be Denman brush) I'm too cheap to get a denman brush lol. I learned the right way of brushing the hair. Instead of holding the brush where the handle is going from Left to right, I learned the proper way of brushing my hair is to have the handle "Down" and to brush it up and down...If that makes any sense.

Also, I use that "Washing your hair" comb aka the wide-tooth comb. It is easier to detangle.

This is how the back of my hair looks ( Stretched and Unstretched)

first day

I decided to do a hair journal because I am seriously noticing a hair retention issue with my hair. I was in the APL challenge for 09 but... clearly I didn't reach it. So I think once I notice what I am doing wrong, I can quickly correct it.

I may do a journal entry every week with pictures to notice any updates with hair growth/breakage.

This week- I'm going to do a DC with egg and olive oil, I think I ran out of honey so Im just going to do the egg. also, I am getting my hair done at a student hair schoool for my graduation.
