I woke up this morning not feeling that hot, and my hair is proof. Lol.
I got to vent, fellow bloggers. So, my friend's wedding is in 3 months. I am so hyped and ready for it because I love weddings and events such as this. AND she is a close friend, so that makes it even more special. But, I am so ready for this to be over with because she was trying to find the most expensive bridesmaid dresses. 300 dollars and more. She already confided in me that she was stressing over the wedding, but I am starting to stress, too. I live four hours away. I have to drive to her hometown three times. I have to buy that gas for three roundtrips and rent a hotel each time. I have to buy this dress and the shoes. Plus, I have to come up with a bridal gift. Boy, I knew bridesmaids have this kind of work to do, but it didn't hit me until last week, lol. So, as happy and honored I am to be in the wedding, I am SO ready for this to be over, lol.
Thankfully, the final price of the dress ended up being 160 dollars plus tax. I could have jumped for joy!!! So, I will be getting fitted for the dress Saturday. I will post pictures of the dress this weekend.
What is going on with my hair? Well, I am still in the Protective Styling Challenge, surprisingly. I am so happy that I am still going through with; although, it has only been one week. Lol. I am currently 5 weeks post relaxer. I still have my relaxer planned for March 29th, which will be a total of 16 weeks. I decided to make my relaxer day two weeks before the wedding because I do not want that flat hair for the wedding. I would have washed my hair a few times, allowing my true thickness and texture to show. So, I have 11 weeks before I relax. Ugh, that is going to be a long time. But I believe that having my hair in buns will help me a tad bit. Next weekend, I believe that I am going to put my hair in individual braids for the rest of this month and all of February. That will be a big help. I am also going three months without heat. OH! How will I make it?! But I believe that I can. I have been using my castor oil at least 6 days out of the week since the new year. I have also paid alot more attention to my ends. I oil my ends everytime I put them up in a bun. I have been reading a few blogs and watching a few youtube videos, and I took a great piece of advice from one of them: do to your roots exactly what you would do to your ends. It makes alot of sense. Why not? Your hair does grow from the roots, why not? I have been drinking alot of water and DCing with every wash. I am doing everything I possibly can to ensure maximum growth. To be honest, I just cannot wait until the roller setting challenge. I am alittle more versatile with roller sets than I am with buns. I have about 13 more weeks to get better, so we will see what else I can do. Lol.
I won't ramble any longer, so have a great day.
Oh, I have couple of reviews coming up in the next couple of weeks. So be on the lookout for them.
