three month trial

March 27, 2009 at 12:06 am (Uncategorized)

i have some corrows in my head right now. did them myself, they’re not bad but not great either. he likes them. i washed my hair and did a protein teratment. came out real good but i was freaking out about the blowdryer. i can’t wait to get the diffuser. anyway i have decided to be a bit radical while i wait to have all the stuff i need. i am going to keep my hair under a wig i these plaits for three months??? i think it’s very doable. i mean people keep their hair in braids for that long and in weaves for that long.mine is better cos it’s my own hair i think, it’s not under any pressure.

  • i will co-wash twice a week to keep it moist and clean
  • apply castor oil on scalp every other day 
  • apply aloe vera gel nightly on scalp
  • seal ends with coconut oil nightly
  • clarify once a month or every 5th wash and apply protein

i think this will give me great growth and the low manipulation and care will do good. i am planning to take them down on 30th june and relax and trim on 15th july then braid again on 30th july till 30th october leave it and baby it the whole of november to realx on december 20th in time for annivesary and christmas . i am so excited. hopefully by then i will have all i need to look after it well till braiding again in feb.i will follow the same routine in 2010. hopefully this year i will reach full shoulder lenght and next year atleast bra new goal in midback lenght which should be done by end 2011. i feel like once it’s bra strap i can wear it out. only when i am working and have an income will i be able to wear it out cos i can afford it. till then i’ll just be growing it. everybody will be in shock!

so yeah that’s my plan and i’m sticking to it! i can’t see the pitfalls. except maybe being bored. if i get bored i suppose i can undo it every 5th week to do the claryfying, yep i think i’ll do that so i can still see and touch my hair. it’s just that i’m so scared of dealing with the new growth!!!!!

well i kind of reviewed my hair plans and aspiratins cos it was jusy looking too much and too expensive. i realised what a product junkie i am!!! lol.

anyway i’m gonna make it real simple. firstly my hair is doing great. after the relaxer and all, it’s been about three weeks now. i’m planning to relax again on the 30th of  june so that will make it a 16 week stretch and i should be rewarded with growth by then ! i have been washing weekly na i have minimal breakeage. gotta try airdrying now. i just love the feel of heat on my scalp and how my hair looks. i think maybe just drying to about 80% should allow heta use to come down considerably and use the heat protectant ofcourse. when i washed it this time i am so broke and have no conditioner so i didn’t use nay! was so nervous. anywho i sed shea butter and the heat stuff on semi dry hair then blow dried it and it looked nad felt great. so moist and moisturised. think i’m not gonna wash again till mid april??? yeah it’s scray that’s like 3 weeks from now. i can do a protein  dc but i think my hair just needs moisture. i have done too may proteina dn form now on will do once a month.mybe month end i can buy some cheapie conditioner??? probably and use that instead.

so that’s it really.  i need to start taking pics of my hair so i can see the progress. i’m gonna go for 12 week stretches till year end but i loooove my hair right now. i thought about putting in braids but i’m just gonna miss it so much. i love the wash days….so i’m gonna wig it till year end. just have to find and buy a fierce wig….
