End of june measurments


front 12"
back 9 1/2- 10"
sides 10.5"
middle 7.5-9"

I cut the middle the shortest on purpose, because I kinda wanted it layered and mostly because of the breakage. It looks ok but I really want a profesional cut. I will do that at the end of he summer maybe before I put in the braids.

I finally found out what lace braids were and I am going to put those in instead of the micros. The micros probably wouldnt have looked right nyway because I would have to braid it so far down. With the lace braids all that would be seen is the hair and the base of the braids in the front. I have seen a few pics of them and they are really cute! I cant wait.

So the plan is.......
1. wear my own hair for the next week or two, DC 1-2x a week
2. put it up in the sew in for 1-2 months
3. wear own hair for a while, DC 1-2x a week, natural wngs, twists...
4. go to dominican salon for rollerset, cut, and to see their technique
5. finally, do a protein treatment and put in the lace braids for a couple months.

I know I will get good growth from this regimen so I am hoping for the best. Wish me luck and BSL by the end of the year or bust!

I have decided to cut my hair little by little until the end of the year. I have cut off between 1-3" of hair so far. In the middle I ended up cutting like 2" and the rest like 1/2". Then I cut again. I straightened my hair out so I could see how it lays. It is so much better than the last time. lays nicely and its getting longer. I havent done a measurment yet so cant tell how much longer it is in inches will do later this week.

I bought a new flat iron a FHI 1". I love it, it makes the hair so nice and smooth. I also splurged on a bunch of products. I even bought the big bottle of aphogee for $20. crazy I know! I did a treatment and I wish I would have done it sooner cause the strength is amazing. Also finally got some eqp dpr 11. I tried it and cant say it was the best thing ever but it really was not bad. I will buy again.

I have been experimenting with my rollersets and this time I used very little product. It was good but it still took forever to dry. I then flat ironed and did the silk wrap. very nice! it came out so smooth and silky, will do this every time. the only thing is I need to get rid of the frizz. wearing it down is terrible. I think it s the heat protectant i have been using, fantasia ic pink one. Ill be on the look out for a better one, I want to try redken heat glide next.

I dont know but I hope that i am getting some extra growth from the vits I am taking. I wont be able to really tell how much growth im getting until i get these ends right. If I'm getting exta growth then I will be BSL before the end of the year. We will see.

My styles or the summer after I wash out this roller set will be a sewin worn for like 1-2 months, then for the rest french braids, twists, and ponies until the school year starts when Im going to put in some micros. I am not going to straighten for a long time unless I feel like it. I am going to be focusing on my ends, keeping them strong moisturized and protected so I wont have to cut anymore.
