My plans for the New Year 2011

I'm currently doing another long stretch.  I plan to stretch to "hopefully" seven months this time.  I've been watching youtube and I've seen so many naturals with thick beautiful hair.  Their hair isn't thin or damaged.  My goal is to have thick hair like that.  Thin isn't cute at all. Even though my hair is getting much thicker.  My goal for the new year is weight loss along with a healthier diet , healthier hair and add to my education.

I'm feeling pretty good about the New Year and plan to make changes.  However, I'm about to do a detox to start my year off right.  It's called The Master Cleanse. I hope to do this for 10 days, then I hope to become a Vegetarian. I believe a lot of health problems come from the food and I want to change that.  I have everything I need and plan to start within the next two days.  It's December 31, 2010 right now.

Root Stimulator Edge Control

This is truly a fantastic product for the edges. A real treat to have.  It makes my baby hair in the front and back lay down nicely, and it leaves it so soft.  The price is  reasonable but I found it's better to buy online.  The cost is 3.99 and well worth it.  I'll always make sure I have this in my stash.  One of my problems has always been my baby hair laying down.

My Organix Coconut Milk Split Ends Mender and Anti-Breakage Review

I'm crazy about these two products.  The Split Ends Mender absorbs moisture into my hair and I'm loving the results.  The Anti-Breakage Serum seals it all in. I also use these products for my wet sets.  I get nice, bouncy curls.  I'll always make sure I have these two items in my regimen.  I found these items at:  Walmart, Target and Walgreens.  Both items were 5.00 each.

My Long Over Due 6 Months Stretch Review (November 2010)

The six month stretch I did really turned out good.  I think I'm going to do six month stretches from now on. I started the stretch because my hair was thin and I wanted to see if stretching would help it get thicker.  I did get a little worried around month four because I wasn't used to going so long without wearing braids.  I  felt so empowered once I saw it was all in the mind.  That stretching doesn't have to be a difficult thing to do. I reached month five and felt really good.  Now I did do things different from  a lot of women who stretch. I kept my roots straight and moisturized and sealed so I wouldn't deal with breakage and it actually worked.  I reached month six and I was so proud.  I almost wanted to go another couple of months but I really wanted to see the results of six months of growing. It was well worth it.  

Have You Tried The Tangle Teezer?

I heard it's excellent for all types of hair.  That it detangles easily.  It doesn't matter if your natural, relaxed or texlaxed, it get's the job done.  I plan to purchase it and do a review soon.
I like the fact it comes in different colors.  My favorites colors are:  pink and purple.
I think my daughter should appreciate it to. lol...

My Two Conditioner And Hydra Cap Wrap Method.

On the days I need to condition and shampoo, I put my hair in four braids.  I put Tresseme Remoisture Conditioner all over my hair but if my roots are in serious need, I'll also put the Aussie Moist on the roots leaving both on  for one hour while under a plastic cap.  I  get in the shower (leaving the conditioner on as I do this method) I shampoo my roots only.  Rinsing for a while until clear in sections.

If I want straight hair I'll do a roller set in ponytails with water only for a faster set. I sit under the dryer for 1 hr and 45 minutes.  I add my moisture and absorbing oil at this point.  Then I do a wrap, then do a hyracap method for 20 minutes.  After this, I'll either wear my hair straight or add flexi rods for 20 minutes for pretty curls.

I do this weekly and it's been working out for me.

6 month stretch completed on the 18th of november

I didn't think I could do the stretch because I wasn't used to stretching that long.  I accomplished that goal and it felt good.  Actually, the day I relaxed my hair, I felt as though I could have gone longer than that.  It's now December 2, 2010 and I plan to do another 6 to 7 month stretch. 

I did learn that my hair likes cowashes during the week at least once.  I've noticed a very big difference since I started that. 

Moisturizing and sealing daily has also transformed my hair.  I'm learning everyday and it feels wonderful.
