:( I am sad that I am FIVE hours away from him, but this distance does give me alot more freedom to do as I am pleased with my hair. Not total freedom because my mother is so annoying about what I do with my hair and how I wear.
But I have been doing alot of things with my hair that I have not done or did not have much luck with. So I have been trying to strengthen my skills when it comes to my hair.
Here is a pic of me since I have been home since graudation. One of my most WEAKEST areas in hair styling is WRAPPING. When I wrap my hair, I always get that crown all jacked up and very wavy. During my advised HHJ, I learned how to properly wet-wrap my hair. I made sure not to snatch nor pull and my tug my wet hair. Wrapped styles started looking much better. I have had a lot less waves in the middle of my head. I have actually learned another wet wrap method that I am going to try out when I relax my hair again. So I am proud that I have gotten better and doing better.
One thing about me, I love to mix up my life with curls and straight hair. During my last semester in school, I loved doing my hair in curls. My last couple of months in school, I used orange perm rods to create this look. I started realizing here that it was taking alot longer to dry my hair, anywhere from 30 minutes to and hour and 30 minutes. Ugh! But styles were coming out adorable. I would roll my hair with these rollers and sit under the dryer. After my hair was dry, I would separate the curls and have this big curly look that I absolutely loved. These curls and this style could last a week without re-rolling.
At home after graduating, I was able to get ahold of my magnetic rollers. Here is the end result where I washed and set my hair with large rollers.
Over the summer, I started experimenting with flexi rods. They have became my best friend. I am going to buy the extremely large ones and the very small ones to keep diversity in my styles. I believe that I am going to forever use flexi rods. I love how they do my hair. I can sleep in them. I am absolutely in love.
I have also bought satin rollers that I have absolutely love.
This year, I have also finally bought my first bottle of JBCO. I have used it for three weeks, and I have seen a great difference in my hair since the initial usage. I have noticed thickness and growth. My hair has been so soft, wet and dry. My mother has really enjoyed it. I have just bought three more bottles of it, one for me, my mom and her mom. I cannot wait until I see some before and after pix since using this product.
I have bought this new heat protectant that has been a wonderful addition to my wet and dry hair regimen.
I have been on this hair jounery for four years. I find it very upsetting that I have not hit any landmarks in all of those years. I have felt like I have wasted so much time and money on this HHJ with no visible results. This fact is that constant nagging voice in the back of my head that tells me that I am not going to get anywhere and that I should invest this time, hardwork and commitment into something that is actually going to flourish.
THANKS for reading this VERY LONG blog. I appreciate all of my followers, and I wish you well on each and everyone of your HHJs.
