its monday, eleven days until my relaxer

i was just thinking about all of the things i want to blog about soon. i need to write about another experience with ACV. that will probably come this week, thursday, probably. also, i want to blog about my new protein treatments. i need to pay attention to when my hair needs moisture and protein. i call myself looking out, but sometimes i slip up. and by the time i realize it, the damage is done. i am eight weeks post, ugh, less than two weeks left before i finally tame this mane. i started my relaxer prep a couple days ago. just trying avoid over-processing. castor oil is playing a big part. i am also moisturizing everyday and sealing will be every other day. i am hoping for an inch, but i will be grateful with a half inch. i feel like i am close to APL. i feel like when i am at least under two inches, the realization will finally kick in. i haven't had hair down my back in seven years. when its finally confirmed that i am less than two inches away, i will jump for joy. lol. i will be so happy. my biggest disappointment will be if i don't make APL in december. i would to at least meet one goal a year.

about my protein treatments: ok, so i was looking at my products and wondering what i am not using and what i do not want to use again. also, i was trying to see what i needed to stock up on for school. i saw my cantu leave in conditioner. i see where i did not use it but only once. five dollars and its practically full. so i was writing down some notes about it: that its a protein, light to medium. and i was look at my HE hello hydration. its a moisturizing conditioner. i was using it as a DC, but its not working anymore. i ended up going to WALMART and finding CON deep active moisturizing conditioner, AHHH!!! its my favorite DC. and it was on sale for three dollars. i bought two bottles. so i have my DC back. its been hard to find and the places where i did find it, they were selling it for five and six dollars. i am very cheap. lol. but back to my story, i wrote a few notes about my HE conditioner, and i looked back at some notes where i wrote about my personal opinion of protein in my hair. because my hair lacks strength at the moment, a strong protein is not what i need. however, every protein that i have tried seems to be a little to strong, even mane and tail. my hair has really lost is strength. so i was think that maybe i should try to come up with a mixture of a protein by myself. my mane and tail is my light protein. so i decided to experiment with the stronger of the two: my cantu. in a container, i mixed two spoonfuls of cantu with three spoonfuls of HE hello hydration and a tablespoon of my oils. i applied it to my hair and left it on for about twenty minutes. i rinsed my hair and applied a leave in and let it air dry. my hair in that short amount of time did a complete one eighty (180, lol, writing it out looked weird to me). when my hair was about ninety percent dry, it seemed stronger. it was bouncy and it was just amazing. it also seem stronger. i was very pleased. so i will try this for a while longer, just to see if this is really what i want in my reg.

so that is about it for this one.
