Happy New Year everyone!
I know that I have been missing in action lately, I have just been really busy and haven't even had a chance to think about my poor little blog.....but those days are hopefully behind me, and I hope to start posting more frequently again.
So as far as my hair goes, I have been experiencing a good amount of growth lately (see the pics below)..
As far a regimen and products that I have been using, I decided back in mid October to try something new. That something new was as follows:
Weekly or every 7-10 days
Pre-poo with olive oil and a cheapo conditioner
Remove shed hair and section into 4
Shampoo in 4 sections using the barrier method
Remove shed hair
Rinse with lukewarm water
Apply conditioner to each section
Detangle each section and subdivide 8 sections
Rinse with cold cold cold water
Air dry until about 75% dry
Apply leave-in(kimmaytube) to each section and either braid or twist
Twice a Month
Deep condition for 30 minutes under a hooded dryer
Mist my hair with a combination of distilled water and a little bit of conditioner.
In doing the stuff above, what I have noticed is that I'm not losing a lot of hair, my hair is retaining length, and it is staying moisturized. I haven't posted a length check since September, but I will be soon which should show even more the growth/length retention.
As for my hair resolutions for 2011, I would like to see my hair grow at least 4-6 inches this year, I plan to keep up with my regimen, and to drink more water and eat better. What are some of your hair resolutions for this year?
