Postpartum Shedding and My Hair Lately


I realize as I sit down to write this post that I really miss writing about hair! I haven’t tried too many new products lately to review but I’m going to have to start, so I can give you ladies some new hair product giveaways too!

Let’s see….

Well postpartum shedding is rearing its ugly head super strong. I touch my hair and tons of it falls out, if I even think about touching my hair, tons falls out… It’s awful. Look at my edges!!!

Healthy Permed Hair Update (and Regimen)


Long overdue for an update on my permed hair but it’s healthy and doing well.

Let’s see.

I have learned a few things:

  • products really work differently on permed vs natural hair
  • air drying is miraculously fast on short/permed hair
  • Pantene BB Cream is my new bestest friend in life
  • Relaxers are tricky bastards (I’ll explain)

So, when I was first permed the hair was BONE straight. When wet: bone straight. When airdried: bone straight!

Now, my hair is wavy and even has some curls in the front!

I was told this either means:

  1. My hair is “resistant” to perms
  2. The perm has finally “settled” and this is the actual post-perm texture


I don’t effin get it. But either way, I’m loving the waves, and the ease. Kinda thinkin’ that I prefer the texture.

Maybe it’s a sign that I should never perm again and just go back to my natural curls.


Maybe I just have a lot to learn about the world of perming.


My current Regimen is:

  • Cowash every other day
  • Apply a leave-in
  • Allow to air dry

The end.

Weekly I shampoo and deep condition. I think I may do a hot oil treatment soon too.

I need a haircut in the worst way, other than that, I’m so happy with how EASY it all is.

How’s your hair lately?

#TeamNatural No More – I Permed Bone Straight!


Well, You read the subject right. I permed my hair… bone straight. Adios, TeamNatural (for now)

Everyone’s telling me I’m not going to last. The person who has the most faith in me staying permed says she gives me 6 months. :/

I’m digging it straight for now. And like that it takes zero effort to get it straight. I also can see myself missing my curls in like…. 5 minutes from now. So….


Here’s the hair after the perm:

I think I’m gunna Perm (Tendril Tuesday Linkup)


OK Now, perming natural hair is not my go to post topic… but…. Girls, I dunno if it’s just a passing fancy, or if I’m actually going to take the plunge, but all I wanna do is perm my hair bone straight. I’ve never had it permed bone straight before and I am daydreaming about a pixie cut…or things like these:

And I feel like it would be a lot shorter styling time and less work if it was permed. (I need the easiest/shortest regimen these days and in the days ahead)


I figure that, knowing my hair ADD tendencies, IF I even go through with it I’ll likely either hit the razors again and BC after I’m bored with it or grow it out and trim it away and be back to natural again shortly… But I’m just not sure.

What are you up to with your hair lately?


Holiday Hair and Pantene Truly Natural Giveaway!


You already know I love Pantene and have spoken about their Truly Natural collection, among other products in their range. Well….our friends at Pantene are sponsoring a huge giveaway of 9 full-size items from their Truly Natural, Pro-V, and Expert Collections!

I’m thinking…it’s time to go straight! I haven’t straightened my hair since….well before the big cut… but I am ready to try it out and see how it looks. It’ll be perfect for the holidays, for a different look…and I’ll be able to wear a hat in this cold weather without jackin’ up my curls 🙂

Normally for the holidays or a dressy occasion I would do an updo like my beloved bow bun:


But now I have no hair for that! Thank you for inspiring a new look for me, Pantene. I’m sure it’ll come out OK. I’ll be sure to use their deep conditioner to start off with super moisturized hair. (This is KEY for getting natural hair super straight) I’ll post next week to show you the results…
