Last Saturday marked 1-year since my last texlax. I had a poll at the top of my blog for readers to vote. Thank you to all those who voted. You certainly made the decision much easier. I think I was already there but I needed some reassurances that I wasn't completely nuts! Although, if you ask J, he might tell you sometimes, my ideas are :-).
Anyways, here are the results.
On Saturday morning, after giving JOE a bath and doing her hair, I decided to tackle my hair.
First, I made a spray bottle mix. It is the same mix I use every weekend when I deep condition my hair. I just needed to make more since I was almost out and I wanted to make sure I'd have enough.
This is what I almost always have in my conditioning spray bottle. Typically on Saturdays, I'll spray it on my hair and put on my foil cap to trap the heat. I wear it while I give JOE a bath and do her hair. Then by the time that's done, I am ready to jump in the shower.
This time, I sprayed my hair but instead of washing, I snipped snipped snipped!!!
Here's a short clip of the video recorded by J.
And the end results...I like it! Now I know what people mean when they say "shrinkage!" But so far, I don't mind too too much. This is how I rocked it on Saturday.
The length of my hair. It is about 6-inches in front and 7 at the back. I'll have to take a picture next Saturday so I have it for my reference in the future. The back of my hair has always grown faster and longer than the front. The middle of my hair grows VERY slowly.
Then on Sunday morning when I woke up, I decided to 2-strand twist my hair while sitting in bed. Yup...I had the whole Coolio hair thing going :-).
See what I mean? :-)
And this is how I wore it to work this morning.
So far, I am loving my journey. I can honestly say I was one of the lucky ones because I didn't have a terrible journey. It was pretty smooth sailing.
I don't know if I'll continue to document my hair journey but if I try something new, I'll be sure to share it here.
In the meantime, feel free to share any fun hairstyles you think will look good on my somewhat short hair. I am not a fan of heat. I always end up with a burn even when it is being done by professionals so I think I'll be waiting until sometime next year before I flat iron my hair.
