Hello, and Happy MLK Day!!! Days like this makes me proud to be an African American even more. We as a race has evolved so much, and I embace beautiful, celebrated days such as these. Happy Birthday, Dr. King!!!
Well, ladies. I want to give you a small update. I will be covering a few topics in short detail so please excuse me.
-First of all, I am unable to upload pictures to my BLOG anymore. :( It is so sad. I have so many pending blogs that have been awaiting pictures so that it can finalized. Now, I cannot add them. Blogger refuses to let me do it. So, with that said, I am adding my HHJ photos up there. So, if you are not following me, please follow me @ enduring_ego1920. I do follow back, especially HHJ sisters!!! So, I will continue to blog here, but my pictures will be placed there for now on. Please excuse the inconvience. I will not post pix of my mother's hair on my IG, because I am friends with alot of hometown people and they do not know that my mother struggle with extreme problem areas, thin areas, extreme breakage, etc. So, for her privacy, I am refraining from putting any of pictures up. I will only speak of her journey on here.
-I relaxed my mother's hair yesterday, 1/20/2013 @ 7 weeks post. I am so proud of my mother because that is the absolute longest she has been without a relaxer. I have decided once again not to relax her problem area. She will be going the entire year without a relaxer there. My mother's hair is also growing. The middle nape is filling in very nice. I am going to keep my mother on a castor oil regimen. I measured my mother's problem area, it was five inches by four inches. I am pleased to announce that my mother's problem area is growing in, its about 3 3/4 inches by 3 3/4 inches. So exciting!!! My mother is starting to slip back to sleeping around with no bonnet. She is becoming less motivated about getting up and getting it. But tomorrow I am going to explain to her the great changes I have seen in her hair from seven weeks ago, and maybe that will be the swift kick that she needs.
-I took my bun out from one of my protective styles and started to signs of my ends trying to thin. So, I quickly got some braid hair. My hair is officially in individual plaits (pix on IG). I plan to stay in them for about 3 weeks, but I would love to stay in for six. My hair is soft from my leave in where my hair is trying to slip out of my braids already. So, 3 weeks is the goal. After 3 weeks, I will wear my hair in a loose bun for a week and I plan to put my hair back into braids until a week before my relaxer.
These are my current updates. Despite my picture inconvience on Blogger, I encourage you to continue to follow my journey here. My blog is more of a personal journey. You see me here at my most vulnerable. Nothing here is censored; I talk about all of my hair ups and downs. What I am trying to say is that A HHJ IS NOT PERFECT, ITS NOT SCHEDULED AND ITS NOT EASY. I hope that you continue to follow me and now on IG, too. I plan to post a hair pic every day if not every other day. I appreciate all of the love and support. Continue to be apart of my mother's and my struggle to grow our hair PERIOD.
