They say forming a habit take 21 days or longer 8 months depending on the activity. In any case, my hair has started a habit of being curly, April and I shocked it during my visit on April 11th. We flat ironed it, wow, it has grown after being up for 3 months straight. Having the right products make the difference for anyone transitioning; we used Avocado, Rosemary and Nature's fast growth essential oils. My hair has really grown in 4 months: I really enjoyed having my hair down however, wrapping it every night; I can do with out at this time. Until next time....

As it turns out, washing a head of hair is time consuming and imagine when you have 2 different textures. With 8 months of new growth and many years of relaxed hair. My shampoo experience during my visit on April 2nd seemed different. This visit to my favorite salon was special because Darlene my friend who is also transitioning was there; look at her curl pattern, just beautiful. Having my hair is a protected style for another 2 weeks, I must admit my shedding is very minimum. I decided to get my hair style in a previous style but it turned out different anyway, lol. My good hair is coming along (sshh) don't tell Ms. Larina that I said that. She scolded me in the salon and said baby, "everybody has good hair"; I was like, not like my good hair, smile. This is a journey, I tell you, but enjoying the ride.

My my time fly's by, it's been 8 months since starting my adventure to the nature world of hair. I notice more nature hair styles now more than ever before. Some are cute and others, not so much. This style was something that April and I put together since I wanted some twist to hang down. However, having my hair up for another 2 is just beautiful. My scalp is healthy, look at the new growth, I'm on my way, I have about 3 1/2", oh yeah. Avocado oil is working really well... I took my curls down 11 days after the appointment.

It's been awhile since I've blogged about my latest styles and new products. I've worn my hair up in a bun for a month; don't be sarcastic; April washed my hair biwkly, smile. I must say, given my work schedule and kids social calendar, having it up really helps. I'm using Avocado oil and Nature's Fast Grow by B's and it's great. My hair isn't oily but its really soft. My "good hair" is really coming through, drum roll, my natural hair is officially at 3" long. Seven months of no relaxer, time really does fly by. Darlene, myself and hopefully have decided not to cut our hair until Dec. of this year. That will be 17 months of transition, there's no turning back now. Ladies we can do this.... I look for small things to help me along this journey, the below picture is a small ball of hair that I shed after 2 weeks in a bun, that's exciting. My hair isn't shedding, this Avocado oil, is "magic" to my pores. The below pictures are from my appointment on Jan. 22nd, things are looking wavy.

Well my blogging continues, my adventure in terms of hair styles and maintenance has officially started for 2013 on Jan. 9th. April and I have a strategy of doing hair based on milestones events until this Fall. As you can see below my hair has grown another 1/4" or so. My secret, is not to wash my own hair but I did in between appointments.

My last hair appointment of 2012 and I decided to have my hair stylist (April of BLLING in Pflugerville, TX) to flat iron it out. We had a family photo scheduled and I didn't want to have my hair up. My hair grew another 1/4" in 2 weeks..

My hair appt on Dec. 11, my hair style lasted 2 wks in a bun. Wearing my hair in an updo has really become my best style in these early stages of growing out my relaxed hair. When April washed my hair, we discovered no breakage of the relaxed hair and another 1/2" of new growth. Since my hair was up for two whole weeks, the amount of strands in the shampoo bowls was minimum; yay.
