New Year: 10 things i've learned while on my hair journey

Hola guys! Today is the last day of 2011 and 2012 begins in less than 24 hours. This is a few things i have learned while on my 2011 hair journey, from these mistakes and learns i can learn better for my 2012 hair journey. I am excited for my 1, 2, 3 and all my other year anniversaries. My one year is in April, April 19 and im excited. So enjoy this post. 

1. Mineral oil is not good-- At the start of my hair journey i was using deep conditioners and moisturizers with mineral oil in it not knowing that it wasnt good for the hair. 
2. Check your products--I had a minor protein overload not knowing that the conditioner i co-washed with (Herbal essence long term) was a light protein and also that my leave in conditioner was a medium protein treatment.
3. Their is a limit to dusting-- I was getting addicted to dusting that i was dusting maybe every 2 weeks not knowing i was dusting all my progress away. ( THIS AFFECTS MY 1 year result progress, not as long as thought)
4. Be gentle with detangling-- One reason i had breakage was because i was detangling not proper, i was tearing my hair out. ALso detangle with conditioner or detangler.
5. My hair loves to stretch-- The thickness and the break from the relaxer.
6. Giving my hair a break-- My hair loves to be on a break and untouched. I really never did this only with my wig but not for long, but 2012 things will change, Senegalese twist will be my new best friend lol
7.Deep conditioning overnight (NO NO !)-- My hair is mushy and feels as if i have a moisture overload, and it breaks easily.
8. Rollersetting helps retain length-- Rollersetting helps my hair retain length, i did rollersets but not as much as i did prior to my hair journey. But my hair loves them! 2012 things will change.
9. Know the full knowledge when starting hair journey- i started my hair journey March 2011 but didnt know the full knowledge of a hair jouney, do and donts, bad products, moisture & protein balance, etc to probally May 2011(which affects my 1 year anniversary)
10. A hair journey is a whole year-- I abandoned my hair from August to december (which affects my 1 year). I was caught up in school that i forgot my hair, i wasnt taking as much care as i should have been. I was slacking on deep conditioning, M&S, and flat ironing more than i should have.

Everyone be safe tonight! Have a wonderful time and look forward to greater works and greater thing in 2012. Starting my new year right in the right place CHURCH.

Enjoy! (New year,same me, just another day)

Its Time for APL :))

Since school i have been still on my hair journey but not to the extreme during the summer. I trimmed my hair today to get rid of the split ends and raggedy ends(well dust, heavy dust). I am still not APL, i'm about still 2 to 3 inches away. Hair grows 1/2 inch a month. So if i went on a 6 month to 7 month stretch i could get their. So my goal is to get to APL! My one year annivesary is in 3 months!!! :)))
Regimen to APL
- Dust when needed(no unnessary)
-Oil scalp with castor oil(massage scalp atleast everyother day)
-M&S every night
-DC every wash for atleast an hour( i have been slacking for about the last 5 months)
-Co-wash once a week 
-Protective styles during winter (no time for split ends)
- ROLLERsets or airdry hair
 --- No flat ironing!!!!
-Steam Hair, Hot Oil 
Here i come (comparison) 5 mons. 3 weeks post
APL here i come 11/25
3 to 4 inches from APL
April 11, 2011
March 24
March 24
Length Check
March 21

I have been discouraged for the past week now, because when i look at my hair its still the same length, but i have regected my hair journey for about 5 months since i've been in school, so my one year and a half on hair journey i'm expecting APL july or august 2012 for sure! Mark my words! I will be APL!

After Christmas Sale Purchases !

Hey you guys! So i finally purchased something i have been wanting for a while and have been window shopping for about a month now. A FUR VEST! I purchased it from Wilson's leather yesterday they have a 70% off sale it was originally 120.00 but i got it for 35.00. The ones in Forever21 was the same price range and even higher but the one i got looks better. It looks like the lady to the right(on the picture).

Also i purchased some black wedge bootie shoes, not sure of the correct name. I got them for target originally 35.00 i got them for 15.00. They are really cute and are similar to the Dolce Gobanna shoes (below) but mines have a peek toe.

I'm still shopping, today and i will keep you all posted on my purchases.

Merrrryyyyyy Christmas :)))

I know its a little late but Merry Christmas to you all. I hope everyone had a wonderful day and got what they wanted. Remember the real meaning of Christmas is Christ not Santa, or gifts but Christ. He was born sometime in November - March, but Christmas is all about celebrating Christ birth, but don't get all caught up in the gifts remember the meaning.

I have not washed my hair every since like friday i think so yeah lol.
