I know I'm a day late, but I want to wish everyone a Happy New Year. I wish health, happiness, and hair growth to you all!
2012 was a big year for my hair. I decided to stop getting relaxers and I big chopped. Since I cut all my relaxed hair in June, it has truly been trial and error. My hair is still not where I want it to be, but it's getting better, and I am optimistic about the year ahead. It truly has been a mental journey just as much as it's been a physical one.
I hope your holidays were as relaxing and fun as mine. I had almost 2 weeks off, and I spent it organizing, sleeping, spending time with family and friends, and of course, working on my hair regimen. I trimmed my own hair, since my frizzy black ends were driving me crazy, and really hindered me having a nice hair style. I trimmed quite a bit- probably a little over a half an inch. I still have some black ends, but they're not frizzy...yet. My hair is probably very uneven, but it's okay. It felt so good to get rid of those ends that were doing nothing but harm. I also realized that I need heat to deep condition. It made a huge difference. I'm kicking myself for being too lazy to sit under the dryer for the past 6 months!
I've been styling my hair a different way for the past few days and I love it! More details and pics coming soon!
