Ahhhhhhhhhh!!!!! THIN LIMP HAIR!

Lol , I’m just kidding but those thin, limp , dyed , fried , frayed ends are by far the scariest thing I’ve seen all year. This is Me , pre-Big Chop!! About 6 months before I decided to take that huge step into Natural Fabulosity! I had pretty good length and I can’t lie I loooooved that golden blond bang (bangbang) but as you can see …. it was a pure mess! The shedding was rediculous, the thickness was non-exsistant & moisture went AWOL to say the least. Between the creamy crack & my flatiron there was some vicious love triangle going on that I had to put to an end & fast! So…….. I BIGCHOP’d & ****wahlah**** almost like magic ….. I’m on my way back , full & in effect!!!

MY INSPIRATION: Watch “How I Grew My Natural Hair | Length Retention – SimplYounique” on YouTube

SimplyUnique1 single handedly inspired me to embrace  & big chop my thin & destroyed hair ! Over the last 8 months she’s helped me with my confidence & encouraged me to take that step as a black woman & I may never be able to repay her but I’d love to say THANK YOU!

Wow! ITS OCTOBER 2013 .. this year is just flying by & since my last post I’ve been busy taking care of work & home. So while my hair has been doing what it does (getting all long&pretty) I’ve been doin what I can to help it along the way a little bit.

So I figured out a few things about my hair & what it likes ..

* Garnier Fructis EVERYTHING: shampoo, conditioners, mousse, friz control etc. , it all works well together & my hair doesn’t feel heavy. It doesn’t cost much & you can find it at any convienant/beauty supply store.

* LOC Method: Now I’m not sure if its the LCO or if the ‘L’ stands for liquid or leave-in, so I just do it the simplest way I can…. Liquid – I rinse my hair in lukewarm water after I shampoo, condition & detangle my hair (no combs); Oil – Pure Extra Virgin Olive Oil; Cream – Leave-In Conditioner

* No Heat: Cut the blow dryer, flat irons , pressing combs  off and out of my life (for now!)

* Protective Styling: Protective & low manipulation hair styles. I love cap weaves, havana twist, wash&gos & long braids. All styles are easy to do at home & youtube can & will change your life!

* WATER WATER WATER & more WATER: never deny your hair moisture!!!
