Silicon Mix Revisited

I deep conditioned with Silicon Mix this week, and I'm not liking my hair too much. I don't have the shine I usually do, and my hair doesn't look as good as it does. It could be the heat and my perspiration level, or the fact that my hair wasn't completely dry when I took the rollers out. I've also read on some hair boards that it's not great for rollersetting. I may try it again when I'm brave enough to air dry. I know I loved it before, but this one time it just didn't do it for me.

My Neck, My Back

I'm really happy (and grateful) that my hair has grown to my shoulders, but it's taking some time to get used to it. Yesterday it got caught on my seat belt, and today it got caught in my bag strap. It's also strange feeling it on my shoulders and back. Sometimes it give me the chills! Mind you, I am NOT complaining- I just have to get used to it!

On another note, I've been so good at not buying any products. I think the only new product I've bought in 2009 is the Silicon Mix. I really want to try a cleanser from Hair One, but I'm going to wait until my Creme of Nature shampoo runs out. It's discontinued, so I'll need something anyway. I really need to buy some hair accessories, like headbands and clips and stuff. I just haven't seen any I like lately. It feels so good not being a product junkie anymore!

One Year Progress

This picture shows from when I cut a few inches of damaged hair last May through my most recent relaxer (yesterday):

08-09 click to enlargeI didn't reach my goal of shoulder length when I wanted to, but I did reach it!

Last year, I would get a trim every other relaxer, but I've been getting a "dusting" every relaxer, which is every 10 weeks now. I really like my ends to look even. My stylist told me that my hair looks and feels great!
