Wash Day 5/12/12

This blog post will be really kind of blah. Wash day came and went. I pre-pooed with coconut oil, olive oil, and castor oil for 45 min. I then shampooed with CON Moisturizing & Conditioning Shampoo (2 lathers). Deep Conditioned with CON Moisture-Active Deep Conditioning Shampoo for an 1hr and a half with shower cap on. Let air dry for about 30 min then apply leave ins.

After I did all of the boring stuff, I started to feel my hair while it was air drying and I had half a mind to just flat iron and go. (I was going to a friend's graduation the next day) But normally I don't like flat ironing my own hair, but the condition of it felt so good that I felt kind of compelled to do it. Then something in the back of my head was like no, Keita, don't do it. So listening, I went ahead with my rollerset that I knew was going to be a beast. FAIL!! Woke up the next morning and my hair wasn't dry. I'm in the mirror like WTH??!?!!? It was pretty much dry last night. So in a rush, I just pinned it up to hide my droopy, soggy curls. :(

10 Weeks Post!!

SOOOOO I lasted my goal length of 10 weeks with this stretch this time around. Now before I get to the pictures I want to express some concerns I had after my relaxer. Before getting it done I was so excited about how much length I retained judging by my new growth. Let me tell ya *sigh* My aunt started to flat-iron my hair and goes "The left side of yo head ain't never been this thin and chewed up!" I'm sitting in the chair like seriously, what the hell!!! I thought I was doing good. Now my left side has always been shorter and I just came to the conclusion that the right side just grows faster because I've changed the side my part is on and everything.

Enough about that, I did see growth and I should definitely be more focused on health than length. And with that being said, I must get a length check shirt. I get super tired of trying to find the same shirt to take my length check pics.... SOOOO here they are....
