2003 to 2006... Fits and Starts....
The beginning of my hair journey was a little uncertain. I wanted my natural hair to grow long but too much color saw me cutting it short again and again. Several transitions here.

I'M PREGNANT!!!

I am finally pregnant after begging hubby for the past 3 or 4 years for a baby. We have been married 6 years but got pregnant on the first try! I am so excited! I have never been happier! Baby boy is due July 4, 2011! About 11 weeks into the pregnancy I had to have surgery for a fibroid tumor. It was 5 lbs! Caused me terrible pain, I was hospitalized for a week, missed about 3 weeks of work. But it's all worth it and I can hardly wait to meet our little boy!

January and February, 2009. Month 27 and 28

More braids y'all. This year I am really focusing on length! And I'm going to try this MTG I've been hearing about! Less cutting, more conditioning! I am spraying my hair in braids with Aphogee leave in conditioners and Motions conditioners every day. Washing every 2 weeks while in braids. Really focusing on conditioning.

MY FAVORITE PRODUCTS!!!
Feb 8, 2009

Coconut oil is tops right now. Can't get enough! Conditioner is the product I can't live without. Coconut oil makes a great conditioner. Just started using MTG this month. Will be using it almost every night for 6 weeks while my hair is in braids. We'll see if it boosts my growth, especially in the nape.

March, 2009, Month 29

Last 3 weeks of a 10 week braid stretch, Crown and Glory method y'all! Plus new growth check, braid take out, length check, new styles, and 6 weeks of using MTG results. *UPDATE* 2/26/09 Took my braids out after about 7 weeks after my husband asked me if some braids had fallen out! Because of all the new growth I guess that's how it looked! So it was time for those braids to go!

April 2009, Month 30

A line bob cut and weave. Also, I texturized (tex-laxed) my hair so I could comb it easier without breakage. The back of my hair was feeling too thin to me afterwards, so I began cutting it. The more days that passed out of braids, the more I cut the back. I ended up with a short A line bob. In another effort to protect my hair, I went to a beauty school and got it weaved. I really like how the weave turned out. I'll try to keep it in until the end of May, my birthday, May 30th. I will try not to cut my hair anymore this year. Probably back to braids for the summer, maybe some shorter braids this time. My hair does not want to gain length, I really don't cut it so often that it shouldn't have reached my shoulders by now. It should have.

May 2009, more hair, last of weaved style and new wig!

I'm trying to leave this weave in until near end of third week in May so I can have 2 months with it. I am planning to buy a short human hair wig to wear this summer. That way I can keep cornrows underneath, wash and condition my hair more often, and take the wig off for swimming! UPDATE: The wig is on back order and I got a haircut!

SUMMER 2010! Braids and After Haircut
Aug 10, 2010

Braids most of the summer. After lots of cutting last summer, the hair damaged by the old flat iron is gone. I took out the braids and dyed it even redder. I trimmed off 1 to 1 1/2 inches to clean up and wake up the layers for more volume. Going to buy a new flat iron, have you heard of the Sedu? I got it! With tax, $174.00! %$#@!*&^$*%$@$$! But it's worth it, it gets my hair straight much faster with less damage. UPDATE: I loved how the SEDU iron straightened my hair, but I couldn't justify the cost, so I returned it. I miss it. But almost $200.00 for a flat iron is ridiculous.
