Relaxer Update!

Super big relaxer update. I may be about 2 days shy of my stretch limit of March 1st but I caved. I relaxed my own hair and then when to the local Dominican salon to have it rolled and put under the dryer. I have been weaned off the dryer, mostly because air-drying is the reason my hair is as healthy as it has been. Don't wanna mess that up!

Well, the giant relaxer update is that... I am practically a pin nail away from BSL (below shoulder length) which is the longest I have ever been in my life! So excited I know my next relaxer update will be an official BSL record. My hair is also the most healthiest it has been. I may load up on some more protein treatments, and stop scrimping on the DC's (deep conditioning) but my hair is good.
No breakage. The only issue is shedding when I comb or wash. Long strands, like 10 or 20 together come out sometimes, but i just chalk it up to me not combing. I try to not comb or bother my hair until I have to wash.
I still haven't updated any pictures. bear with me!

As usual...

I've been lazy as usual. I'm so disappointed in myself ugh. Oh yeah. I am back on the figurative horse (Yee haw!)

I washed my hair with the amla and shikakai method almost 3 weeks ago which is not good because I usually do it every week. It was only because after I washed, I rolled it for my first time and it CAME OUT GREAT! So, I got so hyped I never wanted to wash it again. Well, that and the fact that it was rough rolling my own hair... especially with 3 months of new growth.

I was planning on stretching until march first but I can stand my NG right now, it feels dry. It could be the fact I haven't washed in 3 weeks! Ha ha... So I am gonna relax today! I'm excited. Can't wait to see how it comes out after I roll it.

I just got home from a few days with the boyfriend so I'm checking up on all my online gossip I've missed. LOVE YA ALL!
(pictures coming soon... I swear)

Sigh. Well I am disappointed in myself. I lacked on this week's two hair treatments. I have been massaging with coconut oil everynight because it helps with my dandruff. (eww*) I was so caught up these last days because i have been stuck online surfing Its a super website and i collected like a million outfits on there... ya'll should check it out.

Well hopefully I will have some hair updates soon. I do have a tad bit of new growth but i will wait until I wash to give an official growth estimate lol.

The Start Of LHDC Girl!

This a blog about my hair journey. I hope I can be an inspiration to all who see me and light the way for those who are afraid. My hair usually grows around an inch every three months. I am trying to get that up to at least the average length of 1/2 inch per month.
I have officially started my journey on December 1st 2008 (My 20th birthday!!) and i think I will do comparisons on January 1st of every year.

Right now, I am trying to stretch my relaxer for 12 weeks or 13. My last relaxer was on December 10th! I think I will cheat this time and have a relaxer for Valentines Day.

I am starting this post one day after my wash even though I am moving my Official Wash Day to wednesdays and if I'm really good sundays and wednesdays.

I am a future college student, no pets, one boyfriend, and a goal of long, healthy and well documented hair!
P.S. Salon Day will be.... every four week when I'll try to do a length update. BYE!
