Just an Update

I recently relaxed my hair after 8 weeks post. I know my stretch wasnt that long but it was the first of many to come. I just wanted to update everyone on what I've been doing recently. After I came back from Mardi Gras (had an amazing time) I've really just been bunning it up. One day I may wear a headband or do a low bun, styles in that area. Every since I relaxed I've just been doing a lot of protective style. I plan on washing my hair sometime next week and Ill be posting my regimen very soon. Talk to you later!!!

8 Weeks Post Relaxer!! Boooo!!

The results of my bantu knots
So today marked 8 weeks post relaxer. I know that sounds WWAAYY early to the vets but for my first stretch I think I did an okay job. Next time I will definitely meet my 10 week stretch goal. I also relaxed early because of the upcoming Mardi Gras weekend and my mini-vaca with a really close friend and her family. I don't want everyone waiting on me to do my daily hair routine so I went ahead and relaxed. I'll post another bantu knot out that I wore today and my first LENGTH CHECK pics. AAAHHH super excited!!!!

My First Blog Post!!!

So..... I'm super excited to start this blog. I was kinda apprehensive about starting it at first, but I finally mustered up the courage to do it. I have scoured numerous blogs daily to figure out what to do with my hair and how to build my own regimen. So many women have helped me, that there are too many to name.

I've always had a perm since my younger years (can't remember what age), and my hair has always been around shoulder length. I have a few friends that are natural beauties, but that's not the path I want to take. I normally go to my stylist every two weeks and for the most part my hair is fairly healthy. My problem comes in with my OWN maintenance of my hair. If I wasn't at the beauty shop nothing would normally get done to my head. I'd occasionally flat iron and NEVER wrap my hair at night. My left side is also my weaker side. I'll include some pictures to show my previous state of hair.

You can see the major uneven-ness but I recently had this problem fixed

Barely shoulder length
