My Hair Lately...
I've been in high puffs, twist outs, and wash-n-gos all summer. And I have hot mess ends to show for it. Last week as I put my hair in twists, I noticed that my ends were fuzzy, feathering, snapping all over the place. I think that I've known for a few months that my sketchy regimen would catch up to me eventually. I guess that today is eventually.
So I gave myself a trim..
And deep conditioned with heat.
And left it in overnight. (Why I Deep Condition Overnight)
And recommitted to protective styling.
AND I'm really serious about trying a *gasp* real long term protective style (or something close to it...lol) for a couple of months to give my ends a rest. I haven't worn extensions, wigs or weaves in almost 10 years so this is gonna be a huge change. Say a prayer for me y'all. In some ways I feel like I'm stepping back---in other ways I fell like I'm realigning my actions to facilitate match new goal. Not a length goal---because I haven't had a length goal since I achieved my ultimate goal of MBL (with my texlaxed hair) last year---but a new new goal...

Your girl is turning the BIG 30 in about 7 months and I really want to ombre my curls. Which means using a lightener, bleach or something ridiculously damaging like that. Needless to say, I want my hair---especially my ends- to be as healthy as they can be.
What has your hair been up to lately?
