Rough Week – October 19, 2007

Hello everyone! This has been a rough hair week to say the least. My hair didn’t want to stay straight this week. Wednesday is when all hell broke loose and I really don’t understand why. Argh. Today it got so nappalicious that I had to put my hair piece in lol. I think that I will need to invest in another one now that my natural hair color is visible because it has definitely been a lifesaver. *Sigh* I must say that the natural hair gods are testing my patience this week because it has been a hard one! Hopefully next week will be better. I am praying my hair will cooperate. But other than that, things are pretty normal. I am still only using E’tae products . The breakage has stopped and now I just experience normal shedding, so that is definitely a blessing! That’s all for now. Have a great weekend!

A nap is tryin' to curl!

So I am sitting here in bed, and I reach to scratch my neck and lo and behold I find "the little nap that could" tryin' to curl up! I am soooo excited. Maybe there is some hope for my naps. Just wanted to share my excitement. I think my coach is proud that I am chuggin' along!

Hair Update –October 9, 2007

Hello everyone! Miss me? Well there is nothing bad to report. My hair is still responding well to my products and weekly routine. It is really starting to grow which is great. I get so excited when I can get more of my relaxed ends trimmed off! The first picture is of my hair after blow drying it. Scary—yes I know. The next two pictures are two days later after the flat iron. This weekend I flat ironed my hair and rolled it up right after that. I unrolled my hair about 2 hours later and it was perfect. So I think I am going to stick with this routine for a while. But all in all, so far so good—people definitely can’t tell that I haven’t put a relaxer in my hair since July, unless I tell them! :o)

So natural hair isn't corporate (according to Glamour magazine)?

Check out this article. It's sad that people are still quite bold with their racist thoughts and beliefs and really have no shame about what comes out of their mouths. SMH. Thanks for sending me this article K!

Wash Day—October 1, 2007

Hello everyone! So I washed my hair on Friday (9/28/07) and again used my E’tae products. This time I used Nutrient, Aloe, and Preserve along with my Creme of Nature shampoo. As expected my hair came out soft. I then blew my hair dry and I must say I did much better this time! Instead of curling it, I flat ironed it so I could ge the roots really straight. Let me tell you, Ithat really worked! Before flat ironing it, I used some Buttershine to protect my hair from the heat. I wrapped my hair up on Friday night and it came out cute on Saturday (pictures are below—I am wearing the blue top). I would have preferred more body but I think it looked cute regardless.

For my Saturday night event, I did use the curling iron because I didn’t want my hair to be bone straight. I’ll post those pictures soon.

Last night, I rolled up hair on hard rollers and it is cute and bouncy today! See the pictures below. All in all, things are well again this week. I’ll keep yall posted as usual. Have a great week!
