Lol, is your hair to big for a cap? Thats the only thing I can think of.....

Applied sulfur mix tonight and massaged for about 5 minutes. I also added honey and olive oil to my conditioner, and It worked Wonderfully!! ;) Anywho, I won't be doing buns as often, I think my hair prefer moist braids instead, so I I braid my hair in two braids on each side, moisturize with purified water/honey mix and sealed with olive oil. I also took so sneak peaks before my big blow out on Dec 31st.. after that my next one won't be until my daughter birthday 5/29

Thanks Amber! Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that I wouldn't have even got this far without BHM teaching me.. Big smile I've always had thick-shoulder length hair, now I'm almost full mbl..   Wink I really want to go ahead and relax, its sooo tempting. Im like 4 months post... Im just trying to squeeze one more inch in here by Jan 1st..

Update: I am officially GHE-ing, I'm slowing down on the co-washes and doing ghe-ing at least 4-5 a week. My hair loves this method. I don't know why I stopped last time..prob got lazyEmbarrassed

Hair Goal for June, 2013: Shoulder Length
Current Length and State of Hair (e.g., relaxed, natural, texlaxed): 5-6 inches nape- 8-10 inches crown (NL); natural 
PS of Choice: Twists (do finger coils count? On my hair they look the exact same as my twists, anyway. Both curl to high heaven when moisture hits.)
Detailed Regimen while in PS: Eh...i don't really have one. i've always gone with the flow. but for now i'll say leaving in twists or coils for at least seven days, aiming for 14. moisturizing when needed. sleeping on satin pillow cap...there's not much to do when my hair's in either one of these styles except leave it alone. the most involvement i ever have with my hair is on wash/detangle day, where i use fingers only and mostly a spray bottle and conditioner. i remove twists then wash on loose hair (washing in twists gives me knots; and oil of all kinds seems to dry out my hair big time) then when done i go at my hair in many sections, working out knots and tangles with fingers, spray bottles and a tad bit of conditioner. that about sums it up for until i wash it again. my hair stays pretty moist (or at least not dry) til i get ready to attack it again. I've never had porosity issues, and no arbitrary breakage so...
Biggest Hair Issue at the Moment: none  (except, hurry up and grow already!!! Angry)
Favorite Product: Hm...don't have one. they're all created equal in my book Tongue just kidding. um..i'd say at the moment my fave is (does my spray bottle count?) mane n tail conditioner because it makes my hair like butter when i do use it. it's subject to change, though.
