My mother is not on an official HHJ. However, I have been handling my mother's hair for about two years now. I have been relaxing her hair longer than that, but she has given me the go-ahead to take the reigns for about two years. My mother's hair regimen is very limited due to the fact that she does not believe in all of the things that I am doing is beneficial. Also, my mother is not the type of person who will follow a regimen, even if it means growing longer and thicker hair. She is just not that motivated. So bear with me; the things you may hear will be very simplistic, but it is all I am allowed to do because my mother is so hard to work with.
At the end of the summer, my mother and I am still using JBCO. We feel like this is the best thing for us. My mother has five problem areas, but there is a huge at her crown. I have been working tirelessly with scalp massages and trying to remind her to tie her hair up at night. So, without further interuptions, this is my mother's updated hair photo.
I relaxed my mother's hair on Friday. One side of her hair has grown thicker and longer than the other side. I have decided not to trim her hair anymore UNLESS it gets very noticeable. My mother's temples are another troublesome area. I have cut my mother some bangs to not only hide her trouble area, but to give her hair a different look (pix on that later to come). She is loving the bangs. They really make her hair look thick.
If you have read in earlier posts, my mother suffers from a disease where hair thinning is a symptom. Well, I am grateful to say that I believe that my mother's hair has made a great turn around. I do not believe that her is suffering from her disease anymore. I believe that we have a great handle on her hair. For a while, my mom's hair was thinning really bad. The disease makes it thin, but my mother's poor habits were only contributing to the thinning, if not accelerating it.
IN CONCLUSION, my mother's hair has made great strides in the last three months. I am very pleased. I will be working on the following with my mother's hair:
-a better way for her to tie her hair up at night
-continue to grow out her major problem area
-finally achieving length
Thank you so much for reading. I would like to update my mother on her again in a couple of months. So, please be on the look out for that blog. ALSO, my hair update post will be coming soon. I am making great strides, just like my mother. Be on the look out for that post and many more.
Thank you so much for staying with me and my mother during our journeys!!!
