This is almost like a recap of the past almost year. Just in case for whatever reason, you missed the last year or so of my journey, I am going to give you a real quick rundown. If you have been keeping up with me, well, bare with me!
Alright: January 2009, started noticing that my hair was ridiculously tangly. I knew the reason why it was such a handful was because it was hella damaged. I had all these incomplete splits in my strands. So not cool.
March 2009, everything was coming to a head. Something had to give. My last twists with long hair.
Boom! I chopped it off.
What the?!!?!? @#@#@# I did all this chopping and my hair still looks like poo poo? Erh!!
I still had damage! I can't win for losing I swear!!!!! I tried changing so much in my routine, so much, but nothing. Would. stop. the. incomplete. splits. So in late summer 2009, I did another chop. I stopped updating my fotki album frequently because of computer issues, and stopped taking pictures regularly because I was frustrated with my hair. Came close to giving it all up for good.
Then in September 2009 I said eff it and cut it all off!!!!!! I was so tired of doing major chops, letting it grow, then chop again, then letting it grow, that I bit the bullet and went all out! Starting over fresh. Nothing like a brand new start.
Did a freakin Bentonite Clay treatment, then soon after did a porosity control conditioning treatment. I don't know what the plucky duck happened, but I had MORE incomplete splits in my hair! @$@$$@$@
So November 2009, three days before thanksgiving, I shaved my head dang near BALD.
"Grow hair grow, grow hair grow." Nothing else seemed to work, I tried everything else with no luck, maybe this chant will help my hair stop getting damaged?
Okay, this is going to complete my nappy recap for January 2009-December 2009. Stay on the look out for Part II coming soon!
