I guess I should start by telling you why I'm here. It all started one night while I was surfing the web to find some hair tips and I stumbled upon Black Hair Media forum and Long Hair Care forum and I was amazed to see the lengths (no pun intended) these women and girls go through to care for, grow, and protect their hair. I started to think that I should join them and follow a regime, but then I remembered I have nursing school, a full-time job, and the scattered pieces of a social life. So I decided against trying, inevitably failing because I would never be able to keep up with such strict practices, and becoming discouraged early on in my quest for healthy hair. To make this short, I continued web surfing found HealthyTextures.com (great site) and the girl on that site (who has amazing hair) said to create a hair diary and take pictures. So this is my hair diary complete with pictures.
The purpose of this blog is to track my progress of obtaining healthy hair. That is my number 1 goal, healthy hair. My second goal is to grow my hair longer, I do not have a specific length I'm looking to achieve just longer healthier hair without being overly obsessive.
My hair is currently shoulder length. I get a relaxer every 5-6 weeks and I normally go to a salon to get it done, but I have done my own relaxers without breakage and burns. Anyway I would say the texture of my hair is nappy without the relaxer so I guess that makes me a 4a/4b and it is not colored.
