Just starting to LOVE my hair.. Ive been wearing weaves so long, i forgot what my REAL hair looks like. I started my fotki to document my hair journey.. Im a memeber of LHCF The BEST site for black hair.. I finallly found out that YES, African Amercian women can have LONG REAL hair..

My hair is 4a, tightly coil- Size of a coffee straw, fine stands medium density.

I just started my journey on 10/09 cbl

co wash weekly
clarify w/ acv & BS monthly

Moisturize daily and seal w/ coconut, vatika oil, amla and evoo oils
Hiding my hair until 3/15/11- My B-day

2/24/10 Update-- Im starting to baggy whole head every night. -I spray my ends w/ water and seal w/ coconut oil and evoo
I braid my hair in individuals braids and wear my satin cap under my half wig to protect ends during the day.
