As I go through my journey of getting my hair back on track, I am basically relearning all the things that I used to do that helped my hair to grow from above sl, relaxed, dry, brittle hair, to healthy, soft, beautiful, MBL, Natural hair.
Luckily, I started to keep this blog a little after I first started on my Healthy Hair Journey. At the time I thought it would be a good idea to document everything I did to my hair, and I was completely right!
After my hair fell out and I chopped it off, I have dealt with so many conflicting emotions when it came to my hair. Its so frustrated to reach your goals and have it all disappear in a short amount of time. My hair is so important to me and it always has been. I always wanted to know how to make my hair healthy and from a very young age I would search for every ad anything I could that pertained to hair care.
The problem was, back then there were no resources, or very few that catered to our type of hair. The internet and therefore the world has come a very long way. 10 years ago, I was using dial-up! Digital cameras were a myth!
Although times were much simpler back then, certain things are so much easier now. The internet is a wealth of information and the "secrets" are out there waiting for you to find them. Stylist no longer have the control they once had.
I used to think that I would never be able to give my hair that bounce that I got from going to the salon, but I watched and I studied until I got it. Now I refuse to go to a salon. I'd shave my head bald first! lol
It has been, maybe over 9 years since another person has touched my hair... Maybe longer, who knows!
Sometimes I do get funky and want someone else to do my hair, but then I have to remember that there are VERY FEW people who know how to handle my natural hair.
Every Single Time someone has took it upon themselves to do my daughters hair they rip inches off!! It frustrates the hell out of me to go and come back to find that someone has "done" my baby girls hair.
Apparently natural hair does not look done to many people.
Anyway, this post started as a post about my deep conditioning regimen and has gone in an entirely different direction all together.
I am very happy with the changes in society. The economy is crazy right now and I read in The Post a few days ago about some random person comparing Obama to FDR(or whoever, I dont do history, lol) and how by now in his presidency he all but fixed the economy...
Thats seriously comparing apples to oranges. Back then they were not dealing with the World economy that we have today. Back then was a different time, a different culture, a different people all together with different values and beliefs.
I am happy to live in the times we are currently in.
We have come a long way, and we will continue to grow and prosper.
Happy Hair Growth & Happy Hair Journey to all!!!
