Hair update

I am 26 weeks post relaxer today!

I will get my hair relaxed next week. I just decided that this evening, so tomorrow i will do a protein treatment in order to strengthen my hair for the relaxing process.

I have been rocking buns and ponytails for the most part and using gel to slick down my edges. That has been working for me but now am tired of bunning. I have also done braid outs a couple of times recently but my new growth doesn’t blend with my relaxed hair so i just look shabby. And since i do not want to use the flat iron, i will just end this stretch.

I will add pics to this post once i have them watermarked

Edited to add: too many random pics…

11. I speak French but not fluently. Reading/listening is not a problem but speaking in French is quite a challenge for me. I need to work harder on that if i really want to get that diploma!

Questions asked by Lydz:
1. Chocolate or vanilla? Vanilla

2. Swim or gym? Definitely Swimming

3. Flats or heels? Would love to say heels, but am always in flats because thats more practical for me at the moment. So for now, Flats it is.

4. Silver or Gold? Silver. Am in the process of collecting a few gold pieces though.

5. Flat iron or roller setting? Roller setting. The less heat i use on my hair, the better. Plus it gives my hair great body and bounce.

6. Weaves or wigs? Neither. But if i had to choose, i would pick a wig because i can always take it off at the end of the day and carry on with my regular hair regimen.

7. Facebook or twitter? Facebook

9. If you had to be a vegetarian which protein would you miss beef, poultry or seafood? Beef! I would REALLY miss my mutura – African sausage.
