Weave installment 2/20/14

So on the 20th, I decided to get a sew in. 
It started off as 12 inch human hair. It took 2 packs to do my entire head with a little out for my leave out. 
I enjoyed the original length for about two days, but what I really wanted was a bob. No one wanted to do my hair because they thought it was cute being that it was almost the same length of my hair. I wanted something different. So I decided to take it upon myself to do my bob myself. 
I sectioned my hair off in four sections. 
I decided to cut about four inches at the nape. Then I cut the rest of the back around six to seven inches to give me a little layered look. 
I'm loving the length. So it's time to curl. 
Day 1 look that's really curly!!!!!!

Day 2 look, trying my bob out with a straighter looker. 

In the end, I'm satisfied with my look. I'm planning on leaving it in for four weeks total. I'm not used to a sew in, so I'm not so sure about leaving this in for a long period of time on the first initial long term installment, if that makes since lol. 

It's almost been in for a week. My nightly regimen has been oiling my scalp and hair. So, one week down and three more to go. 
I'll update you soon.

Introducing Something New to the Blog

Hello.
So, I have decided to add blogs about nails, make-up and hauls to my blog. I promise that I am not going to completely deviate from my main obsession: HAIR. I have a few other beauty things that I LOVE to talk about: nail health, nail art, pedicures, shopping, hauls, products, make-up, etc. Nothing too big, but I wanted to make sure I gave you full warning before I dove right in it, lol.

Enjoy the rest of your Saturday!!!

My January Relaxer Post

Hello, hair ppl!!! It's been three weeks since my last post. Between work and school, I have been bogged down. On top of that, I have caught some bad bug!!!! I'm just starting to feel better, better enough to write this post about my relaxer. 

The reason I cut my relaxer short at ten weeks post was because my NG was so hard and crunchy. DCs didn't work. Oils didn't work. Moisturizers didn't work. Air drying was a mess. When my hair started snapping at the line of demarcation, I knew I was in trouble. I decided to relax that follow day. Thankfully, I did not suffer any damage or breakage with this relaxer. 
I relaxed January 20th. 

However, I did notice that one side was growing a lot faster than the other side. Troublesome as it was, I made the conscious decision of not trimming. Then I decided to start a vitamin regimen. After a couple of weeks, I observed that my slower side was still not trying to budge. It was here that I decided to give myself a well deserved and even trim in the back. 

Altogether, I trimmed and 2 1/2 inches off, mostly on one side. 
I feel good. I'm still APL, but my ends look healthy!!!! They DNT look thin. I'm continuing my vitamin regimen, taking one hair-skin-nail, three biotins and two Hairfinity vitamins a day. I have noticed that my NG is thicker, but no other significant difference. I am currently 4-going-on-5 weeks post. 

On feb. 20, I had a sew in installed. I was so tired of styling my hair. So, I decided to give my hands and hair a break. 
It's about two inches longer than my real hair. My goal for this weekend is to give my sew in a bob cut. I'm nervous, but I know exactly what I want, so I know that I will accomplish it. I am going to do a blog post on how I cut and style my bob cut. Stay tuned for that post. 

Until next time, 
Alexis

January Goals Recap + February Goals

Hello, ladies. Prepare for a short blog!!!!!!!

I am coming to you with news from my January goals. I had two very simple goals:

Hide my hair 25 out of 31 days -
PASSED! I am so proud of myself. I was able to hide my hair with no problems!!!

Use castor oil 25 out of 31 days -
PASSED! I am so proud of myself. I used castor oil on my hair every single day.

So nothing really big to report. I met my goals, and I met my January goal: Hide my hair the entire month of January.

Here are the goals for February:
-Moisturize my hair using the Liquid Cream Oil method at least 23 days of the month (80% of the month)
-Roll/rod my hair at least 23 days of the month (80% of the month)

There is nothing difficult about these goals. I believe they are very achievable. If I can force myself to hide my hair for 25 days, I know I can do these simple goals.

IN OTHER NEWS:
-I did an emergency relaxer (blog to come)
-I trimmed my hair 2 inches (blog to come)
-I am taking up to 3 hair supplements a day (blog to come)
