More on Hair

Zabeth over at Zabeth's Corner has a great post called How the Gym Saved My Hair. You should take a look at it. It's well worth the read. Read the comments too.

Today is a new day. What are you waiting for?

For a brief period of time I used to sacrifice my workout to save my hair but I felt awful, out of shape and exhausted; ladies it’s not worth it. I have started my exercise regime in May. I have to admit I wash my hair constantly and it’s difficult to keep a sleek style. Also, I’m learning a lot about my hair and its kinkiness I’m learning to embrace it for the sake of my health. However, I do agree that more BW need to exercise. I wash my hair constantly now but I fee terrific inside and out.

I have that book! That's how I learned to blow style my hair!

I used to wear wigs ( I have a collection of more than 12) but this summer I decided that I was going to become master gardener plus I was going to try to lose weight. Added to the fact that this summer made hell feel like Alaska, the nylon had to go.

My hair was about shoulder length on one side and different lengths on the other (never go near the scissors when you are upset, or drunk)and took about an hour to style. I cut a good 5 inches on the long side and 3 inches on the other so I had an even length all over. That was kind of a mistake, cuz even tho I did look nice, my bangs were really short.

No matter tho - after washing and conditioning with a moisturizing shampoo (I love Aussie Moist - Its Black Hair friendly) I blew it dry (2 min), put some grease on it (remember Ultra Sheen! yeah, that was when you had hair!) and curled it with a 3/4 barrel curling iron (5 min).

What I had was a short, cute flippy style that took less than 15 min from shower to curl. Since then, I think July?, I have washed and curled my hair every day. It has now grown out about two inches, now that I am exercising!

If we only knew then what we know now....

Do you think it was a conspiracy by hairdressers to make sure that they would have a full shop on Sat. Morning?

I go to the barber shop a every two to three weeks. Wake-up wash, brush and go. Real simple.

But there are men with more hair than me.

I have had Sisterlocks for about a year. Sisterlocks are small locks that are started and maintained with a tool instead of twisting. You can check out my blog for more info. Before that, I wore braid extensions and hair-pieces. Now, working out is no problem with my "natural" hair. I refuse to sacrafice my health to maintain a certain hair-do.
