I have washed my hair twice since I last blogged and it's a little better but still not the way I like my hair. I just noticed that the texture in the front of my hair is much looser than the rest of my hair. I don't remember it being like that a year or more ago.

I need to invest in my old staple products. Bertolli Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Fruit of the Earth Aloe Vera Gel. I think I may stick with Pantene Pro V Curls Shampoo and Conditioner. It gives me great definition. Although, I may need to go back to Suave. I don't know. I'm so confused. I need to spend time re-learning my hair again.

Whoa is me

Wow... it's been a while. I washed my hair last night and it took me 2 hours to detangle. I've been neglecting my hair again. :-( My hair feels so dry and brittle and it tangles easily. I have never had this problem. I almost want to wash my hair again and see if I can fix the problem. I will probably do it at the end of the week. Right now it's in 2 braids under a sleeping cap.

Holy Afro!

I washed my hair on Wednesday and thanks to all the humidity in Hawaii, my flowing hair went to Afro in 2.5 seconds!

Is it weird that I love to wash my hair. :)

Wash Day

I definitely wore my 2nd day twist out up in a high pony tail today. I haven't worn a pony tail in forever, I loved it! I'll update after I wash my hair tonight.

1 week

So... I wore my twists for 1 week and a couple of days. Today I took my hair out and wore a twist out to church. I'll add pics to my fotki later tonight. I had a great twistout. I may try to get another day out of it.

Monday night, I will wash. I still don't know what kind of style I'll do. I'm thinking about doing some big twists or braids or something. Nothing to intricate.

Frizzy and Itchy

I've had my twists in for almost 1 week and they are frizzy and itchy already. They are frizzy because I don't have the right type of head scarf and the one I'm using keeps sliding off in the middle of the night.

I've decided I'm washing my hair on Friday! I was going to try to make it to 2 weeks but I think 1 week is best for me. I don't know what I want to do with my hair after that. I'm off to NP to find some different protective styles.

Starting Anew!

Well, last Tuesday I decided it was time I did something about my hair. I am embarrassed to say that I have really neglected it. I hadn't detangled in I don't know how long. I had freeform locs going on.

So.. I washed my hair, and then deep conditioned overnight. The next day I detangled half my hair (couldn't finished due to my fingers hurting [I think I have arthritis]) and twisted it so I wouldn't have any problems. The day after that I detangled the other half of my hair, washed and conditioned again and then put twists in.

It took all day Wednesday to detangle 1/2 my head and then half of Thursday to detangle the other side.

I can't believe I let my hair get that bad. At least I didn't have to cut it. It just took time, patience, and a lot of conditioner.

So... here I am starting my hair journey again. Trying to keep my hair healthy, looking good, and as long as it will grow. My goal right now is waist length. If you check out my hair photo blog, you will see my hair was waist length before doing the BC. One day, I will be there again.

Hair Stats: 3C/4A, OS, Kinky, Nappy, Curly, Coily! 24" long.


Hi all! I'm Chelci, I'm 20 years old and this blog is devoted to my hair!

I have just celebrated my 3 year Nappiversary on May 31, 2009! YAY ME!! I began transitioning after my last perm on June 01, 2005. I transitioned for 1 year and did the BC (Big Chop) on May 31, 2006.

I will be sharing my hair routine, styles, goals, and hopefully I will receive advice and maybe a few followers!
