I really wanted to post this random post about hair. I have really been feeling up and down this month about hair. One, I relaxed on the 7th, and my hair has so much thickness. I prepared for my relaxer wonderfully. I have retained length, and I am excited about the upcoming challenges that I am going to participate in to retain even more length. Since my relaxer, I have trimmed my hair TWICE. I trimmed 1/4 inch on relaxer day. A week later, I trimmed another 1/4 inch to help with the overall thickness from root to tip. I am very happy with the look of my ends. On the down side, I relaxed my mother's hair on the 1st. She had great progress. I didn't even need to trim her hair, only her bangs. Well, if you haven't read my earlier blog about my mom, she slept two weeks straight without a bonnet on and her progress is GONE! I have had to take her hair up shorter than it has ever been. I am so digusted and upset. I have been having a hard couple of weeks. How can I be happy about my hair when my mom hair went to hell? I believe seeing how much I had to cut back has scared her semi-straight. That, and plus she told me she is tired of hearing me fuss about a bonnet. I really want to tell my mom she is on her own because it is obvious that she is not listening, don't want to listen and is tired of me and don't want to take it serious. My mother's problem area is worse than before. Me giving up on it will force her hair to get worse and worse where comb overs will not help and her problem area will be forced in revealing itself. I don't want my mother embarassed, but I cannot want it for her. She just isn't motivated. Weave is out of the question, so it is touch and go. Since stressing about her situation, I have noticed some stress shedding of my own hair. I am trying my best to keep my cool, but since getting my HHJ, I am digusted when I do not see people trying to take care of their hair. Yes, it is just hair and it will grow back. But my mother has a condition that stunts her hair growth, I would think she would want to do better. Also, there are women and girls out there who do not have much hair and/or hair at all. So, I am grateful and I am taking care of mines. But I just don't know what to do or say about my mother's. She has been doing good for about three days now. We will see.
So, what is randomly going on? I am about to say goodbye to my first bottle of JBCO. It is at that time where we say so-long to that empty bottle. I have had my bottle since August, and I believe either tonight or tomorrow will be its demise. Four months is great amount of time, seeing that I have used this 4oz bottle on two heads during its duration. Thankfully, I have purchased two additional bottle of JBCO three months ago. So, I should not have to buy any before June 2013.
Other than that, nothing too much going on! So, MERRY CHRISTMAS and pray for southern Alabama who is receiving alot of action by the tornados on this Christmas evening.
