Great nail growth! I could never keep them this long before without them breaking off, feeling annoying, or my cuticles looking totally bad. I’ve been taking my vitamins semi-consistently and using Nail Tek II. I’m going to start adding this to my regime:
Nail Tek II (clear nail polish)
I also checked out my hair growth over the past 3 years. This is what I’m going to try from now on based on things that were obviously working/not working:
Self-relax (so I can tex-lax, PH balance, yogurt treatment, & air dry)
No more tight styles for several weeks/months on end
Super consistent hair vitamins
Learn to style my hair myself
Why did it take me this long to realize that all the braids and weaves I wore to protect my hair were probably the things damaging it? My hair retained length when I took vitamins and did natural treatments to it. What will happen if I stop damaging it and up the ante on the good stuff?
LMAOO! Do not put a woman’s weave ON BLAST ON THE AIRRRR!!!
Anyway, good news. I got an interview offer for a tutoring company without having to boost up my gpa or SAT scores! No, this is not the $3,000/month job I am looking for, but I am looking to make income ASAP so this is great!!
I also decided I am going to make a blog an “after college” blog. Like, a real one with my OWN URL. Not a tumblr. I’m going to use wordpress and all that goodness. Why? Because I have been looking for something with a personal touch that would help me figure out life after college and there’s nothing out there. There’s help books and cliche web articles. So why not make some ad-revenue and online friends by having a blog that journals my search for a “fabulous lifestyle after college”? It’ll also give me a chance to create a fan-base of some sort for my e-book. More updates to come!
This Texas November is just awesome. Not need for the jacket, yet.
ANYWAY, MY HAIR
I’m SO TIRED because I stayed up MAJORLY detangling my hair. I removed my yarn braids and the build up was UNBELIEVABLE. I will say, there was very little breakage. The hair felt very healthy, even though it was dry (as it always is).
During my time with yarn braids, I spent the first month applying hair oils and stuff to the scalp, but I decided to counter balance it by washing my braids once a week. I started to realize that it didn’t seem like that helped since the debri cannot flow freely through my hair when rinsed, so I stopped doing that and used their oil-free spray instead, but I still had to suffer the consequences. And since its yarn, I’m sure that made it even easier to get matte.
My new growth is quite thick in the front but feels non-existent in the back (except for my nape which I do not relax). I slept with my new SILK satin cap which is really good. Using the normal caps they sell at walmart dried my hair OUT. My hair with the silk, though not feeling especially soft, still at least feels like I did take care of it last night, lol. I’m also creating a morning routine that will force my to drink water and take my vitamins so my hair will be able to retain moisture naturally.
