- Ginaloveslanguages84..4 YEAR NAPPIVERSARY!
- BIG CHOP MAY 7, 2008!
Hey! My name says it all, I LOVE the Lord, languages, traveling, and learning about different cultures. I'm a well-rounded girl. I adore my family and close friends. I enjoy meeting new people, reading, dancing, watching movies, COOKING, catching up on sleep, and taking care of my hair!
Originally born in Lexington, South Carolina, I migrated up to Chicago and lived there for most of my life (16 years to be exact). I eventually ended up moving back down south for my Undergraduate degree and stayed in California for 2 years to work on my Masters. I completed a Masters program in Public Administration on May 22, 2010. I've lived in Spain and now I'm back in South Carolina working in Local Government!!!
I joined this site to post photos of my transition back to my "roots" (curly roots that is :) and to learn about products and techniques that other ladies are doing to ease their process. I've had it with heat damage! My last relaxing month was January 29, 2008. (My hair was so damaged by the heat that it became permanently straight except for the new-growth. The combination of relaxing and heat styling really damaged my hair). I BC'd on May 7th, 2008 and I'm ready for a fabulous journey back to naturalness!
Please feel free to share your regimens, products, and ideas that would help my dry, damaged, hair return to its natural moisturized state!
I'm taking a multivitamin. Yay! Hopefully this will help maintain my health inside and out!
Short term growth goal = 4 inches longer by December 2008 **REACHED GOAL!! YAY!!**
1 year growth goal = 6 inches by May 2009 **REACHED GOAL!!!**
2 year growth goal = 12 inches by May 2010 **REACHED GOAL!!!**
3 year growth goal = 18 inches by May 2011 **REACHED GOAL!!!**
REALLY Long term growth goal = 36 inches in 6 years (May of 2014)......
Low-manipulation styling is best for natural hair!
I've also learned that deep conditioning is your FRIEND! Don't neglect it or you'll be sorry......
"Your head is like a crown on you.
It is as beautiful as Mount Carmel.
Your hair is as smooth as purple silk.
I am captured by your flowing curls."
Song of Solomon 7:5 (NIRV)
" We need to be straightening the kinks in our mind and not on our heads"- Cornel West
"God is in heaven. And heaven is in you. And Holy is your name. God wants you to know you have nothing to fear and that there is nothing and no one to blame. You've been informed: Your captivity is over. You've been informed: In truth, you're free. And so it is!"
