- Tink ~ July 2011 Updates Coming Soon!
- July 2010: Check out my updates! I'm pregnant again and this time it's a boy due in October! Also, read my journal entry about my recent setback. Happy Hair Growing!!!
January 2010: 2009 was a rough year for my hair. I had some major postpartum shedding after having my baby and I also suffered a setback. My 2010 starting pic shows my hair in May 09 and December 09. Due to finances and frustration, I tried self relaxing in September and again in December. I was very under-processed both times. I am going to attempt self relaxing one more time (in Feb 2010) and if I'm not satisfied I'll go to a stylist in May 2010. I think in addition to the postpartum shedding, I really didn't care for my hair because I was so tired all the time and consumed with taking care of the baby. I'm excited to get back on track and since I'm about 6 inches away from my ultimate goal, I should reach it by December 2010! Wish me luck!
I started my healthy hair journey on July 30, 2007. I am so thankful to God for leading me to BHM and for blessing me with the knowledge of how to take proper care of my hair. My goal is to have healthy, thick, BSL or MBL hair. I'm still on BHM but I spend more time on KISS.
January 2009: At the end of 2008 I was grazing APL. I couldn't stand my damaged ends so I had my hubby trim about 1.5 inches so I'm back on the road to APL again. My last relaxer was in December and I plan to get one in February at about 8-9 wks post. This will be my last relaxer before the baby. I've been doing the bare minimum to my hair because I'm so tired all the time. Thankfully, I haven't had much breakage but I know I need to do better. Wish me luck!
February 2009: I got a relaxer on February 18th. This will be my last relaxer before the baby.
March 2009: The baby was born on March 8th! On the morning I went into labor, I managed to wash my hair in the shower and let it air dry. While in the hospital I did a bantu knot-out so I would look somewhat decent for visitors. I barely touched my hair the rest of the month! LOL
April 2009: Okay, I seriously need to get back on my game. I'm out of hair products except S-curl and glycerin. I detangled my hair and applied S-curl, then glycerin to seal. I am falling in love with glycerin again!!! I'm going to revamp my regimen and continue on the road to APL and beyond!
May 2009: I got a relaxer and also tried colorshowers. More on that to come!
June 2009: Dealing with postpartum shedding. More to come!
November 2009: My hair is still shedding but not as much as before. I plan to wash & flat iron within the next week so that I can do a length check. Stay tuned!
*******REGIMEN IS UNDER CONSTRUCTION*******
This will be my regimen and I'll make changes as necessary based on how my hair responds. Since I have a newborn I can't devote the amount of time that I would like to for my hair so I'm going to stick with the basics as I get adjusted to motherhood.
The night before I wash my hair, I will do a pre-poo.
I will cowash once per week using a cheapie conditioner.
I will do a deep condition using LeKair Cholesterol or Nexxus Humectress at least once per month if not more often. Ideally I would like to do this every week.
I'm going to use S-curl to moisturize and glycerin or EVOO to seal. Sealing works wonders for my breakage! I still have a little breakage from previous damage and not being consistent with caring for my ends but it's not anything major. I am a believer in the baggy method so I will do that nightly and make sure that I wrap my hair with my satin scarf.
Since I had the baby I haven't done much in the way of styling. Now that the baby is older I'm starting to devote more time to hair care. Since I suffered a set back I'm probably going to go back to bunning alot.
My last relaxer was in December 2009. I plan to relax again in February 2010. My goal is to stretch 10 - 12 weeks or more after every relaxer.
I plan to search and destroy regularly and dust my ends as needed.
My hair seems to grow the average 1/2 inch per month with or without a growth aids. I do take vitamins since I breastfeed but I don't know if it makes that much of a difference at this point.
