Whoa. Today was way too cold. I wish they would have cancelled my exams. French and Science; no biggie really. Went to a little store downtown afterwards to pick up some stuff for my hair. Couple of clips but, they aren’t really holding. My hair is getting THICKER !
I’m super happy about that. A couple months ago I did the dumby and straightened my natural NAPPY hair. And when I say NAPPY I’m proud of it. I’m proud that I withstood the constant bombarding of needing straight hair. Anyways, I straightened it right and I had to cut off FOUR TO SIX INCHES of hair in certain places because there was so many split ends. I tried pressing it again because I thought that was the only way I could figure out if my hair was spliting ( which was VERY stupid ) in the case that all it did was make my hair worse.
Now I`m just gonna start all over again. No, I`m not cutting it all off but I am PROMISING to not use heat for the whole year of 2009. That’s gonna be my New Year’s Resolution; to be healthy physically, emotionally, spiritually and with my hair..I didn’t think hairily sounded right. LOL. A couple of clicks on Google and I found http://www.nappturality.com/. It’s basically a site based on NATURAL Black hair and its qualities and how to manage it. I joined and I’ve found MANY tips for my hair in the sense of which oils to use to keep it happy.
Another thing I`m trying, hence the day one in the title post, is a lightening cream/gel. No, I am happy with the dark color I was blessed with thanks to my dark father and light mother but I am not happy with a couple of scars and my dark elbows. Summer’s gonna come and I don’t want my elbows to look like chalkboards unnecessarily. So, that’s another thing I`m gonna try, see how that works out and keep updating as I go along .
