hair...HAir...HAIR♥

I have a LOVE-Like relationship with my hair right now. My Loved one's keep telling me how it's getting Longer/Healthier but my mind keeps focusing on how it could be BETTER.
I decided this weekend that I am going to give rollersetting a break until my next relaxer. I am 8 weeks post and I don't want to manipulate my hair too much.
Below are some of my goals until I relax on May 2nd..(13 week stretch!!!)
Co-washing- I did not like this in the beginning of my hair journey; However...My hair was not as healthy in the beginning as it is now...so I'm expecting great results this time around.
Protective styles- I really can't stand buns on me, so that's a no go. I Love wearing my hair out, and letting its beauty flow to the world, lol. BUT I have to do styles that will protect my ends and preserve its length. Half wigs & Messy Pin-ups are my friend :)
Dusting- Split ends your DUSTED!! (lol)
Deep Condition- Once a Week with Redkin Smooth Down Butter Treat
Airdrying- With a satin scarf to keep my hair lying peacefully. I'm so glad its Spring Time :)
New Hair Products I'm Loving: Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Herbal Essesnce Long Term Relationship Leave In, and the Jibere Shower Comb!

No more Hair Pics or Length Checks until May 2! PEACE & Kisses

I'm having more of a hate relationship...

I guess I'm not really feeling my hair...

I'm cutting the heat until I graduate...

So protective styles are going to be my friend also...

Cool, please keep us updated on your journey. I hope your hair stops acting up, its the worst when your doing everything to keep it healthy but it just won't act right.

That's interesting..why do you think rollersetting is a no go? I've always thought rollersetting was a good way to dry your hair .

Hey Dance of Lyfe- Im only cutting it for now because I have alot of new growth so I feel that my hair is too fragile to part, fine tooth comb, and roll right now. My new-growth is somethin vicious! lol. It would probably take an additional 3min to detangle each section. But your right...it is a great and healthy alternative to other styles, but when stretching we have to be extra careful :) I want to lose as little hair as possible.
