I love fake hair!!

OK so I refuse to let this set back get to me anymore than it has!! I got rid of the source so now I am going to work on fixing it & moving forward!

I put my hair in a sewin almost 2 weeks ago. I have Harlem 125 Italian Body wave hair. It was really cheap about $15 a pack. I used 2 packs. I left a small horseshoe shaped section out in the front kinda to the side for a side part so that my hair will cover over the weave. I sewed the weave onto a net with my hair in french braids underneath.

I just decided I will just call them french braids I still feel weird saying cornrows.. A bit too country for me. lol

Ok so onto my regimen:
It really hasn't changed much from before but I don't expect anyone to really search through 3 yrs of posts to find what I do lol

1. I will be washing every 2 weeks. i mix shampoo with a little suave & make sure to rinse really well so that all the residue it removed.
2. I'm going to be deep conditioning with lekair with every wash to keep the hair nice & soft.
3. I deep condition my own hair that is left out every week or 2x per week depending on how I feel.

That's basically it..
When I take it out I will do a aphogee protein treatment and deep condition like crazy!

Mirena was the cause!

Ok so I wrote out this entirely too long post about the problems I have been having since I started Mirena. I think it was a bit too personal to post plus it was a huge RANT! So I'm just going to post the short version & tell you guys the major side affects.

1. The most problematic & upsetting- Cervical Dysplasia. I am in the moderate to severe range! Severe cervical dysplasia sometimes can lead to cervical cancer a few years down the line! So thank you Mirena for basically giving me cancer! I may be overreacting but I've never even had an abnormal pap smear before and now I have severe abnormal growth/precancerous cells on my cervix! The stupid lady tried to tell me it was because of my sexual partner. I have been abstinent for quite some time so a sexual partner is in no way the cause. Yet she insisted that mirena was not the cause... dummy

2. HAIRLOSSSS!!!!- Consistent Shedding for an entire year!!

3. slight Depression- I say slight because the way I felt & how I handled stressful situations was far from how I normally am! I tried to keep my self under control and focused but the issues remained..

4. extremely irregular periods- 2 weeks long or more every single month!!!! Seriously!!?!??

There is a 5, 6, 7, & 8 but those are WAY TMI...

But anywayzzzz...
I got it taken out Friday! I am so happy about it & wish I would have done it sooner! The gyn who took it out was a complete IDIOT!! She didn't know wtf she was talking about! I wish I could skip med school cause I could take her place today & do a wayyyyyyyyyy better job! So yea I'm done with bc all together because everything I have been on fucks me up! So I am done!

People! Please don't think that doctors know EVERYTHING! They are people just like u & me. Do your research & don't let anyone talk you into anything that will compromise your health! Always do whats best for you!

The gyn that I saw was not my regular gyn & she basically tried to talk to me like I had no idea what I was talking about! My regular gyn is very concerned about the issues that this lady just blew off as nothing. Said that for some women these problems are normal & kept talking about this mysterious sexual partner that I have! lol Crazy! These problems are not normal FOR ME!! And I have never experienced anything like this until I had Mirena inserted. & now that it is gone two of the issues that I did not mention are now GONE! The depressed feelings I had are going away and I do feel a lot better. That could just be because I had the thing removed but ha! I dought it....

If your going through a similar situation feel free...

RIP Michael Jackson<33

I have been listening to nothing but Michael all day everyday since he died. Its so surreal! But this is life. People come and go. :,(

So this weekend is the 4th of july & I have alot of plans so my hair has to look good. :P I have been wearing it in a simple ponytail. So since I have been in such a long rut with my hair I am going to go ahead & put in my sewin. Im still debating on wether or not I want to use curly or straight hair but I will figure that out when I get to the BSS.

I wish I could do a tutorial on it but I dont know how thats going to work. Maybe I could do short video clips & put it all together with pics....

I need a new computer so bad! But I have other bills... Its going to have to wait. :(
