Hello. Smile AmberColour here
I'll skip the introductions and get to the point. 
This thread will be for my hair journey to meet my hair goal(s)

I decided to make one of "these" hair journal threads, too. I just thought the idea was so cute. 
Follow along and make posts if you'd like. Just keep it positive please.Wink

I had a setback!
Thursday, January 10th.
So, I went to get my hair in kinky twists for a "protective" style..
She was just way too rough with my hair. :/
So not worth it, and it will probably deter me from going anywhere to get styled/anything else.
Hmm.
Anyways it will not stop me from taking care of my hair or discourage me from my HHJ.

I have added MSM to part of my vitamin intake.
Start: Jan, 13th (1,000mg)

Along with HSN Spring Valley
Start: Jan, 2nd

I would like to use them for the whole year, but for now my aim is just for 3 months. :)

What's your hair regiment? And how long [stretched] is your hair?

^My hair is not long. 
The twafro most recent pic is what it looked like before I got twists. 
Not sure what state it is in now. :/
So maybe about 2.5-3 inches at the longest

As for my regimen..

I just wash my hair often, but not everyday. I cowash on days I don't wash.
I use carefreecurl as a moisturizer, shea butter to seal, and oil (Africa's best or Jojoba oil) on top for shine.
And I cover my hair at night after I put a little Coconut oil on.
I use a sulfur oil mix sometimes, but I'm not currently using it.

My current hair goal is 6 inches before August, which would be 1 year of growth.
That is probably when I will trim my hair for the first time.
I think I can do it even with the setback. Wink

Love the hair pics, the cut on the first one looks great on you (and the nail polish too )

Sorry for your setback, but you've set goals instead of throwing in the towel which is a good thing.

Good luck on your journey!

Have you tried doing Kinky Twists yourself? I know braiders can be rough, so from now on I pretty much do my own installs whether it's flw's, weaves or twists.

ETA: in terms of braid/twist extensions, depending on the size you do them they're super easy and fairly quick. :)

@Ritle, TY! Love your hair girl! :)
@Modelb82, I would love to, but my hair is just not long enough for me to right now.
Maybe when I get 2 or 3 more inches I'll be able.
>>>>>>
I would love to be able to use oil on my scalp, but the parts are too small.
So, I'm going to make a spray mix from my sulfur oil that I'll use every 2-3 days.
>>>>>>
Just some hairspo!
LOVE HER HAIR
And I think she said she's 4b-ish!
Lawd!!! Dat hair
