My New Bangs!

I felt like spicing things up this spring, so I cut my bangs. It was time for a much needed

My hair is growing!

Today was my relaxer day and boy was I ever so excited. It has been a looooong 8 weeks, but I am proud to say that my hair is growing beautifully. My goal of reaching APL by December '09 feels like an achievable one if my hair keeps growing at the rate it is growing. No one would believe 10 months ago I had a rhianna bob. I have posted some comparison pics. The top pic is from my relaxer in January and the bottom is from my relaxer today. Do yall see the gowth???!!!!

Last night I did the Aphogee two step protein treatment and the results were instant. When I combed my hair after rinsing it hair in the comb! That stuff is powerful! Anyway then I deep conditioned with Kera Care Humecto Conditioner for 45 minutes and them I applied the Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship Leave In. I did not like the way my hair felt when I put it felt a little hard, but I don't know if that had something to do with the protein treatment I did. Other than that it smelled really good. Next I plaited my hair and added the Garnier Fructis Anti Frizz Serum to each strand. This morning when I took my hair down I was pleasantly surprised:) My hair was very soft and my curls were very defined. My braid out has never looked like this! I think these two products will become apart of my regimen for a while.

My hair this week

This week I have been wearing my hair in a braid out. It is camouflaging my new growth beautifully. Luckily next week will be my relaxer week. I can't wait! It will be 8 weeks. Anyway, tonight I am going to do a Aphogee two step protein treatment. I have been noticing a little more breakage than usual and I have not done a hardcore protein treatment since the time has come. I also picked up some Herbal Essence Long Term Relationship Leave In and Garnier Fructis Anti -Frizz Serum. I'll post a review tomorrow.

"It shall be done....

Monday I had my interview in DC for the fellowship program I applied to and today the lady called me and told me that I was accepted. YES!!!!!!! God is so good!!! I am overjoyed. The excitement I feel is beyond words. I must admit the devil tried to win me over the other day... I got a little discouraged because I felt I did not do that well in the interview. I was feeling really down and I did no think I had a chance of being accepted. But I turned to the man up above and he gave me a powerful verse that went something like this:

"It shall be done for you as you have believed..." Matthew 8:13.

I meditated on this over and over. Knowing that if I believed then God would make it happen. And that he did! The devil did not win this time. No he did not! My Lord & Savior is AMAZING!!!

Now the transition begins... I have 5 weeks to pack and move to DC...this is going to be one crazzy month...oh well let the fun times begin :)

Today was Stressful!

A few weeks ago I applied to this fellowship program in Maryland. They called me back a week later and set up a phone interview with me last Friday. Then they call me back TODAY and tell me that they want me to come in for an in person interview NEXT WEEK! My mind went into panic mode. I live all the way in Texas, so getting to MD with such short notice is no hop & skip. I really had to think about this one. I did not really want to drop a huge amount of money on a plane ticket with such short notice, but I also did not want to miss such a wonderful opportunity. Nevertheless I called on the man up above and received my answer. My ticket has been booked and now I will be headed to MD next weekend. So excited!!! I have been envisioning myself becoming apart of this amazing fellowship program for so long. I have prayed numerous times for God to make this fellowship become a reality. Well I can see that process beginning, but I know that he is not just going to hand it to me without a sacrifice. So what if I have to fork over a couple of hundred dollars, if it leads to me doing what I love to do then it is definitely worth it in my eyes.

Co- Washing is the Best!

So two days ago I co-washed with Aussie Moist conditioner, followed it up with my Aphogee two minute reconstructor and then deep conditioned with Kera care Humecto and Olive oil. After, I put my aphogee leave in conditioner and the green tea restructerizer. I then did a braid out and when I took them down the next morning my hair was soft as a babys bottom! Could not believe how moisturized it felt! I am going to start doing co-washes at least once a week.

Heading out to the mall to relieve some stress :)

Hope everyone has a fabulous weekend!

My 1st Rollerset!!!!!!

Last night was an adventure. I washed and deep conditioned my hair and decided to do a roller set. Boy was I in for a surprise! I did not think it would be so difficult. It took me almost an hour to roll my entire head. Well maybe that is because I have a big Aside from the fact, the task was still daunting... I was so ready to give up. Luckily I did not. I sat under the dryer for about 45 minutes then I let it air dry the rest of the way. I loved the turn out!

Let Freedom Ring!

Today is the day we celebrate the life of Dr. King and give him thanks for his courage and charisma in leading the Civil Rights Movement. Dr. Kings vision was always based on hope and equality for all. He had a dream that one day people would be judge not by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character and tomorrow his Dream will be realized when Barack Obama is sworn into office as the 44th President of the United States. I can not thank Dr. King and all of the men and women who died and fought so that we could witness the historic day that will take place on Jan. 20, 2009. I am soooo proud to be an American and to know that my country has come this far. What a blessing it is! Now I firmly believe that anything is possible if you just believe. Yes We Can!

More than what I wanted :)

Today I was browsing the internet and came across Cece Winans video..."more than what I wanted".This video touched me in such an awesome way. Cece Winans really sang this song beautifully. You know everytime I think about how good God has been to just brings me to tears. No one can ever love me the way that Jesus loves me. I can not thank him enough for never giving up on me. A while back I always looked in the wrong places to help me through my trial and tribulations. It never got me anywhere. Now I realize that everything I need in my life I already have and I find it all in My Lord & Savior. Hope everyone has a blessed day :)

Caruso mistake :(

So last night I did a light protein treatment consisting of two eggs and some olive oil. I then followed my regular regimen. Loved the way my hair felt afterwards. I then let my hair air dry about 90% and then tried to use the Caruso steam rollers ...big mistake!!!..My hair was really big and poofy when I took them out...Yikes!! Next time I will make sure that my hair is completely dry. I was just really tired last night and did not feel like waiting for my hair to dry.Other than that they did give my hair nice was just to voluminous.Today I just decided to throw it in a pony tail. Guess this was a lesson learned

Flat twist out

So I prepooed with olive oil and coconut oil then washed with keracare detangling shampoo and deep conditioned with keracre humecto... then I flat twisted my hair while it was damp and took it out the next day. This was the result. I did not care too much for was my first time doing flat twist so maybe I just need more practice.
