HAIR CUT

That's right. 
I woke up on the 21st and was itching for a haircut. After getting my sew in, I suffered significant breakage. I mean, my hair was choppy and uneven. It looked very unhealthy. I didn't want to even it because sections were so close to BSL. But I didn't care anymore. I wanted my ends blunt and that's what I did. I took time and washed, DCed my hair and added my leave in conditioners. Then I sectioned my hair into some sections and got to work. I cut it to a respectfully blunt full SL and I love the way it looks. 
My Felicia-inspired before pic lol 
Four inches lighter. 
I did this myself, only help was with a mirror. I think I did pretty darn good. 
Here is me with my hair shirt. My head is horribly crooked in this picture, but I am on line 5. I am hoping to be at line 7 for my next relaxer coming up on the very last week of July. With the help of some vitamins and castor and TLC on the ends, it's reachable. 

I love my results. My entire head looks even and at the same length. I believe that I can really thrive from this point. My hair looks healthy and the fullness of my ends are mesmerizing to me. Lol. I do not want to back up to SL, but with my hair looking like this, I have no regrets. 

Since my cut, I have been babying my ends already. No tight ponytails, no splitting my nape down the middle. About 80 percent of my hair is even and I am loving it. Some of my flexi rod sets did not turn out as cute as normal with the shorter cut, but it's updo week for me and you can't tell me that i am missing a few inches with the styles I have been rocking. 
Fridays updo
Sundays updo
Mondays updo. 

I will be rocking updos all of this week until Sunday!!!! It's my birthday on Sunday and I believe that I am going to cheat this one day and rock a roller set. I would love to see what some roller set curls would look like on this new blunt, hair-almost-even-and-the-same-length cut. If I DNT like it, I'll put it in an updo. It's supposed to rain all day on Sunday anyway. Lol. 

Until the next post,

Operation: Graduation Hair

Even though my pursuit of my masters degree is over, I will not actually march and receive my degree until December. So, until that day, why not show up to graduation with a head full of hair. So, I believe that I will be doing a few small challenges along the way plus my own challenge that will consist of SEVEN months of pure hair health related therapy.

So I decided to whip my hair into shape for my graduation. On December 13th, I am hoping for BSL hair or something close to it. The following is what I will be planning on doing:

-Protective Style at least 3 days
-Castor oil with every wash
-Oil scalp and ends with castor oil at least four days a week
-Leave in conditioners with every wash
-No blow dryers
-No trims

This should be givens during a HHJ, but this is hard for me. I made sure not to add anything that is more than what my hair is handling at the moment, because my hair is really thriving this year and it doesn't make any sense to fix anything that is not broken.

So, I will be taking it very slow and making sure to baby my hair every step of the way.

Until next time, and see you on December 13th (of course I will post before then),

April Goals Review + May Goals

So, I'm late on posting my goals. But here is my issue: TMI but my birth control pills has me MISERABLE!!! I have only been on them 2 weeks and I have chronic headaches, stomach issues, breast pain and nausea. I look online at the reviews, and women have stated that their symptoms have mimicked pregnancy symptoms. o_O I immediately took myself off of them. Since then, my symptoms have slowly began to subside......thankfully.

I know, TMI, but on to the focus of the post.
April goals
-castor oil on ends and scalp every night - FAILED
Yea, I did awesome the first part of the month. I fell off after relaxing my hair on the 17th.
-JBCO in all April DCs - PASSED
Thankfully, I met this goal with ever wash in April. I'm so proud of myself. Lol.
Well, here we go with May!!! Goals will include:

-Hot oil treatments with every wash including castor oil

-castor oil on scalp every day

Until the next post,
Alexis
