I AM GOING TO CUT THE HAIR THIS WEEKEND!
My plan will be as follows:
1. wash and DC
2. blow dry the hair out
3. chop off all split, thin, texturized ends!
4. start on the lace braids
The main reason for doing the chop before the braids are in is so I won't have to do it after because there will probably be more damage. This will be my second BIG CHOP I did my first one in may of 2006 after transitioning out of a relaxer for a year. My biggest mistake was texturizing right after instead of learning my natural hair. After this chop I should have 1 year and 3 months worth of growth. That is about 7.5". Hopefully I will have a little more than that because of the vits.
I promise I will not texturize my hair again. I am going to take pics of the entire process and try to get my fotki up and running. I have No time for any thing. I am starting my 3rd year of college next week! Wow, time really flies it was just May!
I bought two flexi 8 clips ($30). I am in love these things are so nice I got a medium one for my half ups and a large one for my ponys and stuff. I was a little upset because I thought they were going to be a little bit bigger than they were. The large is not big enough for my french rolls, so I think I am going to buy two more, this time an extra large. My hair ain't even that long and it's not as thick as it used to be. I just don't get it.lolol
Since the sewin I have done flat twists and knot twists w/ a knot ball to the side. In between the styles I have been cowashing daily and using the flexi8 large for a loose tails up/ french roll. I am trying to keep the ends protected till its time for them to go.
Just a few more days! good bye for now.
