July Update

Haven't really updated in a minute. Cause I'm UPSET... and bitter. lol The hairdresser I've been going to for a few months in town gave me a "corrective relaxer" to help relax my frizzy ends. It's something I've been wanting for a while and I was too scared to do it myself... so that's not what I'm mad about. Call it sexist but it still weirds me out to see men styling women's hair. It's just... unnatural. lol My hairdresser (female) got kind of busy and wanted to know if it was okay for Mr. Man to trim my ends. I decided to put my views aside so I get the heck up outta the shop (had been there for so long). So I agreed. Two inches later... and he sent me under the dryer, telling me he would have to cut more after my hair dried. That didn't even sound right. I was unaware that he had already chopped and screwed my ends!

Luckily, after my hair dried, my hairdresser rushed me out, and Mr. Man couldn't snip anymore off. I barely looked in the mirror before I paid her and was off. Once I got home, my roomie quickly noticed my new haircut. Mr. Man and Sistah Girl set me back a little bit... but still I rise. And, a few weeks later my ends are  STILL unrelaxed which doesn't make me too much happier!

Anywho, I've been using Indian oils in my deep-conditioner mix and I love it. I use what's labeled as Baby Oil. It's a mix of extra virgin olive oil, neem and some other Indian herbs. I mainly picked it because I know my hair loves Olive Oil.

I'm still rockin' half wigs. I got so many compliments on the Outre Supernatural first lady half wig that I made. My newest one was made using Outre Duby (see pics). I LOVE IT! It's a little shorter than the first lady, but the same great quality and layered-wrap look. It was just past my shoulder but I just cut it yesterday and styled it into a short bob which I love. I'll post pics of the bob look in a few days.

ONE IMPORTANT TIP FOR HALF-WIGS: Before you put the wig on, moisturize and seal your hair, tie tight with a silk scarf, put on a stocking cap and then the half wig. This helps seal in the moisture all day while the wig is on (so your hair isn't dry and crispy at the end of the day) and helps give some security to the half-wig. I forgot how much hair loved having the silk scarf on under half wigs last year.

Added my MN Growth mix back to my regimen. I'm applying it once a day right now and I may jump to 2x a day next week. We'll see.
