(my face in this pic tells how i’m feelin about my hair today lol)
I’ve been getting mega tangles these days. Also my hair has been dry as the sahara. It’s my fault. I decided to try a DC every 2 weeks reggie, and obviously my hair is WAY too dry for that kinda foolishness.
The dryness may be the cause of the tangleyness so I’m going to DC like crazy, I’m talking every 2 days, for a bit and see how it goes. Also I’m going to buy a clarifying shampoo to use. Hopefully my hair will behave better again. If it still tangles I’ll have to do a trim.
COLOR & STYLE
I need to get my color touched up, so when I do I’ll get a lil trim IF my stylist agrees to trim on curly hair. If not…. I dunno what I’ll do. It SCARES me to think of someone else with scissors near my head. But the last trim I got was in February so I’m due. I was considering going darker again but ruled against it. I’ll keep going with my new lighter color. It works, especially now that I’m all extra dark from vacay tanning.
I’m going to do more intricate protective styles as I mentioned in my hair goals post. I love the alicia keys thing, but now that I can make semi decent flat twists I want to experiment more. I’ve been doing a lot of wash n gos and that’s getting old.
I’ve been thinking a lot about cutting my hair super short…these are destructive thoughts and I usually get them when I reach BSL/MBL and in the past I would give in. Now that I’m WL and trying to see how long I can grow, I REFUSE to fall victim to these thoughts.
GROWTH & LENGTH CHECK
Every couple weeks I go to check my length, but since I’m not straightening all I can do is pull it taught in the back and try to measure. Going by the photos I’ve taken. It looks like I haven’t grown a bit since April’s length check where I was almost WL. That can’t be right.
I see my hair growing by the amount of uncolored newgrowth I have. Speaking of which. The hair in the front of my head/hairline grows WAY slower than everywhere else. WTF is that about?!
I am planning on buying some long, straight hair wigs for use during photoshoots so I wouldn’t have to straighten my own hair. I can’t wait to try em on and see how they look. I’ll post pics for sure.
