Hi everyone! I just wanted to let you guys in on what’s been going on with me. First, thank you to all my old and new followers for finding me interesting! Whatever your reason for blogging with me, I hope it has been inspirational to you in some form or fashion. So…………..we’ve been blessed to make it through the rainy weekend, now what? So, my hubby has taken the whole week off to distress (is that a word?) …so I want to spruce up the hair while he is off. Of course, that means my twist out. Now, I won’t be wearing it out everyday, maybe twice through the week and then the weekend. Before I get into this coming weekend, let me update you guys on my workout routine. I mentioned before that I no longer jump-rope (just too much bouncing around for me)lol. I workout on the treadmill for 45 minutes (twice a day). Sometimes, I try to change up the routine, yes even on a treadmill, I will walk for a minute, then sprint for a minute on a 7% incline, and gradually increasing the speed by .5mph (3.5, then 4.0, etc.) I do this on and off throughout the workout. I have now incorporated squats in my routine, OH MY GOODNESS! Who knew!? I do 5 sets of 5 three times a week, and when I tell you the soarness!!! I hope this pays off!
Anyway, back to the hair update. It has been 6 weeks, yes, 6 long weeks since I have straightened my hair with the flat iron. The henna application was a “FAIL”. I will not attempt it again, I will stick to my indian clay treatments. Don’t ask. So, I will be praying that I can straighten my hair this weekend. I also have not trimmed my hair since I did the chop. I have gone back to co-washing midweek because the workouts have just been too much on my hair. It craves that moisture through the week. I started properly taking care of my hair in September of 2009. Sometimes I feel as though I should know more or have mastered more on haircare, but the truth is, we are always learning. I do not wish to go back to relaxers though. I enjoy how I can switch up. It has been 22 months since I last had a chemical relaxer. Someone said the “natural hair crave” is just a fad, and we all will eventually go back to, according to this individual “the creamy crack”. I personally believe it is lazy haircare that damages our locks not the relaxer itself when applied properly. Everyone’s schedule just doesn’t allow them to be “natural”. Well, that’s all for now. Hopefully, there will be pics when I flat iron. Toodles!
