8 weeks post Ramble

I am 8 weeks post and my NG is really karate kicking lol. My bang area is especially thick, which is very surprising. My edges are never thick in NG, especially at 8 weeks post. Now, I battling with the temptation of relaxing before the predetermined date. I am pushing for March or April....maybe even May. 
My hair is becoming harder to detangle. It causes for increased patience, which I have no problem rendering. Today, I moisturized my NG with Elasta QP moisturizer and sprayed some Creme of Nature Argan Oil leave in conditioner on my NG. My NG took it well. I have came to the conclusion that I will probably have to moisturize my NG everyday. It shouldn't be an issue. I have been putting castor oil on my scalp everyday so I will be able to remember. 
I have increased my supplement intake. I am taking a multivitamin and a vitamin C everyday. Additionally, I am taking 2 biotin tablets and two hair, skin and nail tablets a day. I am increasing water intake, especially drinking more water when I actually consume the tabs. I am also waiting in my Hairfinity package to arrive. I believe that I will be in Hairfinity for the rest of the year if I see some game changing results. My goal is to meet BSL and MBL this year. Hopefully I will be WL before the end of 2015. 
I am planning on keeping my real hair either braided or hidden. I am praying for some serious retention. 
I hope you enjoyed my Sunday ramble.

Low manipulation styling for January 2014

Hello. My goal for January is to hide my hair. After trying to hide my hair for the first couple of days of the new year, I started experiencing extremely dry hair and began experiencing breakage. This is where I am so lost at. I can never get my hair at the state where is it well moisturized without going overboard. In addition, I experience sudden-snapping hairs on a regular basis. Enough about my problems, I decided to do low manipulation styles until February. I asked my cousin to braid my hair into a Mohawk style with a single braid going up my head. I rolled my leave out, and this is the style I believe that I am rocking for the entire month of January. 
I think she did a great job braiding my hair. It took about thirty minutes. I believe that after two weeks, I will get her to rebraid me up so I can end January on a good note. I am trying to do low manipulation styles, hide my hair, use castor oil regularly and avoid flatironing possibly until my next relaxer because I am trying to grow out the side of my hair that is quite thin compared to the other side. I am currently 2 days shy of 7 weeks. My NG isn't that plentiful. It's more annoying than anything. It's very dry. I am working on handling this issue and soon. Well, until next time!!!

My mom's update

I must say, I'm absolutely speechless and flabbergasted. Lol. I relaxed my moms hair yesterday at 6 weeks post. She refuses to go any further. I assumed from her horrible non-bonnet-wearing habits that mom would have little progress. The picture on the left is from 11/2/13 and the right pic is from 1/5/14. However, my moms hair was very one sided in the back, so I evened to avoid it looking awkward. I had to cut about an inch, which was a good amount of hair coming   Off her. Her problem side is still quite thin and I am only going to instill castor oil once again but there is only so much a person can do lol. I do not plan on relaxing my mother's middle next relaxer day. I would like for it to grow out again, at least for 12 weeks and see what happens. But she doesn't know that yet lol.

January Goals

Happy New Year! I wanted to come to you with a blog specifying my January goals.
Honestly, I have not been able to come through on some goals over the last few months. I don't know if it is from lack of motivation or laziness. But I am really wanting to see some great progress over the year of 2014.

Once again, these are my January goals:
-Use castor oil 25/31 days of January
-Hide my hair 25/31 days of January

At the last 7 days of January, I will attempt the inversion method. I have heard great things about this method and I believe that I will incorporate it once a month of every month in the year.


Currently, I have a issue with my hair. I suffer from shaft breakage. I cannot understand it. It doesn't take much manipulation at all, but my hair will simply snap off. So, I have been doing some research trying to figure out how to solve the problem. As of today, I am still suffering from it with no information as of yet. The research continues. Please continue to follow my journey.

Love, Alexis
