Regimen + Goals

My Hair Regimen: I moisturize and/or oil my hair daily. As needed (usually weekly) I cleanse my hair and scalp with a moisturizing shampoo (or a clarifying one if there's build up). I do a moisturizing OR protein treatment with every shampoo. I stretch my relaxers 3-4 months.

My go-to protective/low manipulation styles: buns, braid-outs and halfwigs. In 2012 I want to start experimenting with more heat-free styles. I air dry most of the time and flat iron for length checks only.

I'm currently midback length (MBL) and actively working towards reaching waist length by my graduation in mid-2012.

Random Hair Thoughts/Hair Babble

Inspired by :) Awesome blog, check her out!
  •  Even though I'm happily relaxed, I often watch natural youtube videos and tutorials. There aren't that many longer-haired (APL+) relaxed youtubers left :(

  • I'm pretty happy with my product stash right now. I like most of the products I have. Still have a few things I need to use up (such as Paul Mitchell Super Skinny Serum and Redken Heat Glide. To me, CHI Silk Infusion is better than both of these products). I still have some random conditioners to use up but by the end of summer I should have my staples down pat (that is, if I ever stop hauling)

  • I got a sample of Miss Jessie's baby buttercreme and I'm still experimenting with it. At $40 a full-size jar, my pockets are hoping that I don't like this product. However I do want to try Curl Junkie Hibiscus and banana honey butta leave-in and/or Darcy's botanical lemongrass and coconut transitioning cream. Am I transitioning? no. Am I product junkie? perhaps

  • I'm sick of halfwigs already. Today on my way home from work, I went to the bathroom, took off my wig and styled my hair into a southern tease bun using 4 bobby pins. Much more comfortable (both mentally and physically...something about wearing my own hair makes me feel more confident). So I'm gonna be bunning it until I miss my wigs. lol what a cycle

  • I have quite a bit of new growth for only 5 weeks post. But I'm not relaxing until August, or full without-a-shadow-of-a-doubt midback length. Whichever comes first :) Speaking of MBL, I'm not really hawking over my exact length. Cornrows have taught me that I don't need to see or comb my hair every day. I do know it's grown a bit since the beginning of the month for sure. and my scalp is super itchy. Growth spurt? Hope so.

  •  I need to buy scissors to do search and destroys! Haven't trimmed in over a year...yikes 

  • One n Only Argan oil shampoo is letting me down for real!!! That stuff is way too thick to be taken seriously! Maybe I got a bad batch because I don't remember the sample being so thick and jelly/gummy. Anyone else have this prob?


  1. IDK! Maybe you got a bad batch of the Argan Oil shampoo from One N Only... mine isn't gummy at all... I hate when companies have inconsistent batches (think Cantu Shea butter!) Let us know what you think of the new CON!

  2. Girl, I just read and commented on Jeni's blog! lol. I swear we really are hair twins. Numbers 1, 2, 4 all apply to me!!! I've been using the same shampoo for more than a year now. My inner PJ is calming down, little by little and my stash is getting smaller and smaller!

  3. Omg shika...u read my Cantu turned clumpy. and it's a huge jar. ugh!

  4. Aww thank you! :)

    #2 - I've been using PM Super Skinny Serum for the past 6 months but went back to CHI Silk Infusion this past weekend and it's making me wonder why in the world I strayed. I really like the PM SSS but CHI Silk Infusion has more to offer IMO!

    #5 - Can't wait to see your reveal! I'm on the search for MBL inspiration - my long term goal (for now).

    #6 - I haven't trimmed since end of December 2010 and my ends are in need of a trim. I cannot skip on the trim this upcoming touch up.
