My hair refuses to hold a curl! Relaxer Update & Set Back!

I relaxed my hair Sept 2 and I did my usual routine. I air dried and then flat ironed it. After that I curled it with my big curler in spiral curls. Before I got a chance to curl the other side of my head the curls would be almost gone. I clipped my ends, Well.... You can say I cut my hair cause I took 2 1/2 inches off of some parts of my horrible looking ends. I just cut them a couple months ago but this time I tried to get rid of all the nasty looking tips. My hair is no where near even. LOL. I chopped it up bad. My left side has always been longer than my right but this time you can really tell, so I keep my hair in buns until it grows out.

I started using MTG again to help speed up the growth process. Just found a local store that has the 32oz bottle for $15! I no longer have to spend $25+ for it online. So I applied it twice starting last weekend. Going to use it Sunday and Wednesday after wash days. Going to do this until Mid Dec then Im going to relax my hair and the end of Dec.

Im hoping to be BSL again by Dec. Right now Im only APL so I had a HUGE set back. I does not bother me that much cause I want healthy hair more than anything. I need to look for a product that helps with porosity control. I never used anything like it before and maybe thats what my hair needs right now. Any recommendations?

Leave any suggestion you might have. HHG Ladies!!!

I ran out of one my favorite products a while ago and forgot all about it. I just remembered when I seen my sister buy some. So I went and picked up the shampoo for damaged hair and the Keratin & Green Tea Reconstructurizer. I'm missing the provitamin leave-in which I love so much. The store didn't have it.

I never used the shampoo for damaged hair, so I can't wait to try it. Im hoping my hair likes it.

Have any of you used it before? How did it make your hair feel?

MTG Hair Update

Just wanted to update y'all on my hair. Well things are going good. New growth is out of control! I have not been using it every other day like I intended to. Been using it like 2 days a week. Trying to get use to the smell but its going to be a while. The smell seems more potent for some reason. I love the the texture of my new growth. I'm always playing with the waves.

I have been cowashing weekly with tresseme extra moisture conditioner. Its doing good on my hair. I let it sit on my hair for a couple hours then wash it out and wash my scalp with it while in the shower twice. Detangling process was good. So I'm going to keep this routine going.

Well thats my quick update. Will check back in soon.

Started Using MTG

So I am back on it yall. MTG is a product by shapley's for those that don't know. Look it up on google for all the info. Going to see how much growth I can get in 3 months. I will take photos monthly to track how much growth I'm getting. I'm freshly relaxed as yall know. I'm going to need to get some more MTG, but what I have should last, since a little is all that is needed to apply to your scalp. If you would like to join me in this challenge help yourself. Just comment on what your routine if going to be while using it. I'm going to be using it every other night and using Wave Nouveau Finishing Lotion to moisturize or S-Curl since they are a little heavier. Sealing with coconut oil. Lets see how much growth I get. I'm hopping it's just as good this time around compared to when I started using it at the beginning of my hair journey. We will see...

Managing your ends

What are you doing to maintain those ends while wearing your hair down? I know I don't want to go through another trimming session anytime soon. Trimming an inch and a half or more (I call it a cut) is not something you want to do too often when you're trying to grow your hair. I moisturize at night and seal, but I don't think that's enough. I have not used heat again after relaxing. Maybe its time to start wearing protective styles now. I guess I enjoyed my hair enough. I'm thinking of bunning it up for 3 months straight. I might even use mtg while I'm bunning. I know my new growth will be out of control after the first month but I know all about how to handle that. I will post starting pics after the break. I'm going to try to use only this army shirt to track my progress. I would like to cover up the entire logo by the end of the year.

Revamped My Hair Regimen/Products


As always Im Keeping It Simple!

New Look!

If you have not noticed, I have changed the look of Hairstrandz. Its a more sleeker look. I took away the design that was in the background cause it seemed to distract from the blogs. It was just too much going on. What do you think of the new look?

Facebook Fan Page!

I started a HairStrandz fan page and would like all of you to support me.

Finally Relaxed!!!

Relaxer day finally arrived. I relaxed on 3/8/11. I had a setback and did not keep any of the growth I had. I also lost some thickness. For some reason I'm not even mad about it cause it was all my fault. I neglected my hair and knew the consequences of doing so and ignored it. I consider this a lesson learned.

Quick Update

I'm hoping to relax my hair some time today, which will be about 6 months post relaxer. Look for the pics coming soon. My bangs are gone as in fell out! I'm not sure why that happened but hoping to get them back on track by Sept. I need a major trim that I might do myself cause I just don't trust anyone else. If I mess up I can only blame myself. So wish me luck. I'm hoping I did not lose much length. We will see. Be back a lil later.
