Wow! I can't believe that we are half way through the year, time flies. My hair has been doing really well, my scalp issue seems to have cleared up. I go back to the Dermotologist on the 21st of this month so I will see what they have to say about the results of the swab sample they took.
I have had some exciting things happen for me over the last few months, I was accepted to The University of Maryland and I got scholarships, and grants to pay for my entire first year and I am very excited about starting there in the fall to finish school.
May 25th was my 3rd year nappy anniversary (2nd time around, first time I was natural for 3 years and for some reason decided to get a perm that only lasted for 6 months.....lol).
This month I plan on doing much of the same, two-strand twist and a day of wearing a twist out. I am still using the same products the herbal spray that I made, organic aloe vera gel, and this hair oil that I have been using. :o)
UPDATE 6/27/07: Ok so I went to the dermatologist last Thursday and got the result from my scalp culture and I was shocked by the results. I have yeast in my scalp. :-O <-shocked face. The doctor says that this can come from my hair being damp for a period of time. My hair holds alot of water and I explained to him that sometimes when I do my twist I don't dry them and I go to bed with my scarf on with somewhat damp hair, he was telling me that is a breeding ground for yeast because it thrives on moisture. I just can't believe I have yeast in my scalp, I know my scalp is sensative but geesh.....EWWWWWWWWWWWWW I feel so dirty. LOL. Its basically a form of dermatitis so it's not the yeast you are thinking of. LOL
-Tips he gave me were to not go to bed with wet or damp hair. -Not to sleep with a plastic cap on my head, yeast loves warm damp areas. -If my hair is damp do not cover it with a scarf while it is drying.
