Nappy Recap Part 1

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.

Spring 2009
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!
