Welcome,

Thank you for visiting my page.

My name is Dee. I started my journey July 09. My goal was to get my hair to its healthiest & longest state, and to grow waist length hair in four years period (Aug. 23, 2013).

Hair Description: medium and loose coils. Dense stands with Medium fine strands. High porosity.

Update: 8/29/15:::It has been 6 years since I embarked on my natural hair journey. I can remember it like it was yesterday when I set all sorts of goals for myself not having a clue what challenges lied ahead. Along the way I have had a lot of set backs and triumphs. I never did reach my goal of waist length hair, the good news is I know where I went wrong. That's always a good place to start fixing a problem.

Natural hair is isn't a phase, it's a lifestyle. Through it all I learn not to ever give up on my hair. This is the hair God blessed me with, it's beautiful and I refuse to curse, or get frustrated with it.

WHERE I WENT WRONG*

I stopped taking care of it. My hair started to grow very thick and it just became time consuming to do anything to it. I decided to heat train it. I live in a small town where there aren't a lot of hair stylist who cater to Black hair. The one I found didn't specialize in natural hair but she did Black hair. For 2 years I occasionally got flat irons and although I noticed things weren't right I continued to get my hair done by this woman. I didn't go often enough to connect the dots so that's why I kept going back. The final major setback happened the day b4 Easter this year (2015) She did everything under the sun that you are NOT suppose to do. And although I complained she dismissed it. As a result I was left with thin lifeless hair that was heat damaged.

My regimen wasn't great after I began heat training, I wore weaves and wigs in between my flat iron sessions, I was just tired of my hair. Although all my hair was braided underneath it wasn't being properly taken care of. I learned the hard way that my hair gave back what I put in; weak lifeless hair that broke easily😔😔😔

I would complain about my hair's condition completely forgetting that once I had perfectly healthy hair.🙈 I had to fall in love with my hair again, I notice I got frustrated with my hair when it didn't look like most naturals who inspired me. Inspiration did more harm than good BC the more I fell in love with other people's hair the more out of love I fell with my own hair bc it didn't look or do what their hair did. I now know that my hair is one of a kind and I have to find the beauty in it because God didn't make any mistakes.

This time around I am learning my hair personally and part of that means being honest and accepting it for How it is, that's the only way I can properly take care of it. This is the best time to be natural bc there has been a lot of new methods and discoveries since I first went natural. on how to take care of our hair. Naturals from my time were testing things blindly not really knowing why they had to do certain things to their hair. Now I understand and know exactly why I do what I do to my hair. It makes sense to go by things that way.

So now I am back to square one. Well I guess that would mean BC but I won't be doing that (although I have had the itch to chop all the thinner ends which would be that be 3-5 inches of hair), in this case I will just "transition" and trim as It grow. Transitioning is one thing I never got to experience becoming natural. What better way to start another chapter than on the same site I began my journey?


The Master Plan:

1. Cut myself some slack!

* I am not going to be so hard on myself for not making it as far as others have. Yes there are many naturals whose journey started with mine and have past me in the length and health department but this isn't a competition. There are women who have been natural all their lives and haven't experienced optimum hair length due to poor practices. It's never too late to start properly taking care of my hair.

2. Keep my scalp clean and healthy

3. deep condition weekly (or as often as it needs)

4. protein treatment weekly for strength.

5. Go easy on the amount of products I put in my hair (to not weight it down)

6. Eliminate heat

4. Keep hair stretched. I just do twists (out) when I am lazy and curl formers when I am not

5. Sleep on a satin silk pillow case

6. PROTECTIVE STYLES: * am holding myself accountable to care for my hair Without distractions. With that being said, I am only doing PS with my real hair. I am selling all my wigs. Protective styles made me neglect and forget about my hair. I find that as Black women we are quick to complain and curse our hair instead of treating like our own hair. I look at it this way; if there was no alternatives (etc. wig, weave, relaxer) I would have no choice but to learn to take care of it.

7. LOC method

Happy growing everyone and don't forget, never ever give up on your hair💜💜💜

💋Dee
