My First Blog Post...EVER!
So I decided to start a blog! I have been on a hair-care journey for about 20 months now, and although I am far from being an expert on hair-care, I thought I'd track my progress this way and share some info about what I have done to grow my hair.
It all began with Hairlista and since then I've been addicted. I have had ups and downs, but my progress pictures remind me that it's all worth it. I am 5'3 and my ultimate goal is to be Full Mid Back Length. I hope to reach this by December 2013.
STARTING LENGTH JUN 2010
CURRENT LENGTH - FEB 2012
This is the length of my hair following a relaxer. Relaxed with ORS, blow dried and flat ironed by my friend. I don't intend to relax again until my 2 year anniversary in June 2012 where I hope to be Bra Strap Length. I have ordered a spread shirt and so I will be doing length checks in a more reliable t-shirt.
Yesterday 03/03/12 was wash day. I deep conditioned with a mix that I saw fgrogan use in one of her videos but I adapted it slightly - ORS hair mayonnaise, Olive Oil and Peppermint oil. I let that sit on my hair for 1 hour with a plastic cap and did a Tae-Bo work out (that really did heat up my hair). Washed out the conditioner and shampooed my roots with Cream of Nature moisturising shampoo. Then I did a black tea rinse and let that sit on my hair for about 10 mins, rinsed it out and conditioned with Herbal Essences (red). Then did the t-shirt dry method a-la Sunshyne added Cantu shea butter leave in, and air dried with the scarf method also a-la Sunshyne. Once fully dried, I added moisturiser and sealed. Ready for another week!
I'll be back to update my hair adventures. Till next time...
