A picture's worth a thousand words

  Even if I update my blog with words, I'm realizing that we're living in a century where no one really likes to read. So I won't bore you and will just update you with pictures! That's why I visit most sites anyway. The above is a bun I learned from Traycee for a conference I was going to. It's kind of weird that my hairline goes all the way down my neck. It always rubs against my shirt so it's always breaking.

Below is a loose French braid I did for classes. My hair has grown since last semester because my braid would never reach that far down. Two thumbs up for progress!

Below is my new growth (or lack thereof). I am one week short of three months post. My hair grows dumb slow. Now that I remember, I did straighten my roots out to be able to avoid a relaxer this long but I don't think I even have an inch of new growth. It is what it is.

That's all for now. I'm about to deep condition and officially get back on my hair journey before I take a break and never come back. lol.

Thoughts on my mind...

I'm going to be real, I haven't been taking care of my hair these past couple of weeks because I've been moving. I haven't tied it up some nights, haven't M&S other nights. My hair has survived the ordeal but the part of my body that has been taking a beating? My nails! That's right. I guess the oils for my hair have also improved the condition of my nails and hands during my hair journey. I didn't notice it until I stopped and I would get little hangnails and poor cuticles.

Now that I've been getting back into the hair thing, my nails are back to normal. I don't know if anyone else is having that issue.
