*Sigh*...just when you think all is well...

Ok, so in my last post, I was talking about what progress I made. The picture showed my progress from August to October. Right now I'm feeling a little torn about my hair...

I got a relaxer on January 14th, and also got a "trim".. notice the quotes around "trim" lol. My hair looks a lot healthier but.. after stretching my relaxer for 3 months I was hoping to have way more progress in terms of length. I should be happy because this is the longest my hair has been in my life really.


A problem I saw today was the BREAKAGE. The breakage continues.. I'm very frustrated by this and between that and my let-down with length, I'm starting to lose hope for this whole "hair journey".. but I'll press on. My hair has always been dry, and although I'm not having AS MUCH breakage as I used to have, it's still an issue to me. It just snaps and comes off, and you hear the actual snap.

I'm going to try to infuse as much moisture as possible in my hair. I know many of these conditioners say they are deep conditioning but sometimes I doubt that. If that were the case, I'd be walking around with some mushy hair, because I "deep condition" all the time. I'm going to try some home remedies such as an Avocado and Banana Mask, Honey in my conditioner, Mayo, and Eggs. There was also a pre-poo recipe on this site: 3 Eggs, 2 tbsp of Olive Oil, and 1 tsp Apple Cider Vinegar.

I'm gong to have to start infusing REAL moisture into my hair, and it BETTER WORK!!!! I'll keep you guys updated, wish me luck!!
