Don't touch, its NACHOS!
update sept&oct
Because being nature requires alot of maintenance the past few months i have been doing a lot of PS while in school. I finally took down my hair and am pleased with the amount of length i retained. Now that my hair is longer I can do more PS with my real hair. I have taken a liken to twist buns; I wear them in all sizes for a week straight and don't have to worry. As far as being natural I have finally mastered it. I know what, and when it is appropriate to maintenance my hair. no more over conditioning,shampooing,styling etc.To me that's the best achievement of being natural; knowing your hair so well that you don't over do anything you know EXACTLY what it needs. Now it can thrive..and to think it only took me 3 years...lol.

enjoy

Don't touch, its NACHOS!
May & June (months 32 and 33)
I would like to apologize for taking a long hiatus. This year started off with unpleasant surprises. In 2 months i lost an aunt to inflammatory breast cancer she was just 28 yrs old. My neighbor/fam friend died to bile duct cancer shortly after, she was 37 (left behind two kids and a husband). one of my best friends was in a car accident that took the life of her 2 kids they were 9 and 5 yrs old. It was one tragedy after another.

Life is so precious it can be taken away in just a breath and although I know my loved ones are in a better place it is us left on earth who suffer. I ask God to give everyone involved strength especially my friend Erica who have to be remembered everyday that her kids are gone. My heart goes out to everyone.

I would like to give a special thanks to those friends that stay consistent in checking out my page.

As far as my hair goes, up until this month it has been in one PS after another. After taking down my last sew in i discovered that an entire braid had been cut off in my crown area. I freaked out but what can you do? I didn't do it nor can i figure out at what point it happened. It is so disappointing to have something like that happen especially when I pay close attention to the care of my hair. It seems like every time someone else touches my hair I am unhappy with something. I decided to turn to wigs for a change. To be honest I really dislike not having access to my scalp when it itches or sweat in weaves. With a wig i can wash and co-wash whenever i please while keeping my hair in cornrows underneath...besides i want to get comfy with handling my new length.

I will be doing the crown and glory growth technique Wig Regimen w/ a combination of the castor oil challenge. Here is how it works:

1. Sleep in a satin or silk sleep bonnet.
2. wear natural braids under wig.
3. Deep condition weekly
4. clarify hair as needed
5. Drink lots of water daily
6. Hot oil (castor oil mixed with coconut oil) treatment weekly

goal: to retain length.

experimenting
(Sep 1, 2009)
Having a TWA is difficult because I'm limited 2 what i can do with it, so i decided to try some things, at the end of it all i decided to just embrace the phase and went back to rocking it short and curly. Thank you to all those who gave me the encouragement to embrace all the phases of being natural. I LOVE YALL

Dec. & Jan. (months 27 and 28)
here are random pix i took between end of nov till jan.

got a few sew in weave as my scapegoat when finals came around,it was a nightmare cus it was dry and matted when i took it down and to make matters worse the braids were done so tightly that my edges were THIN. so as far as sew ins go, major ERROR. I do however take responsibility for not combing out my hair prior to washing FAIL. It was so dry that I thought it was gonna break without water touching it. But u live n you learn.
..
i achieved the perfect braid out (the secret is tO cornrow)

went to VEGAS BABY!! jan 13-16

I finally straightened my hair!!! it wasn't bone straight but that's progress. I needed a trim BADLY so i had my sister do it.

August ( month 23) BIRTHDAY + 2 YEARS NAPPIVERSARY
(Aug 19, 2011)
This is it ladies, the month is finally here. This month I celebrate my two years nappiversary!!!!!! I know you may read this A LOT but I really did not think this month would come. I remember envying sistas who were 2 years plus and thought about how it would feel to be be that far into my journey. 2 years seemed like FOREVER . Now that it's here, I dont know what to think. I am overwhelmed with excitement. I am soo glad I stuck with it. I wouldn't have it any other way. I love every moment of it. It is so great to master all the things I needed to about how to properly care for my hair.

I have made so many accomplishments and still cant believe its me. I am still having an out of body experience. All my goals for this year are achieved and next year its all about growth GROWTH, GROWTH!!! I am currently at armpit length. I am shooting for midway length


For my birthday i chose the style with the hanging braid; it compliment my dress and its edgy, stylish and fierce!! Not as many people as last year b/c i wanted to emphasize the importance of family and how much i value how close we all are. There were a few close friends. The night was fun!!

Ladies stay encouraged. I am 2 years in and im loving every moment of it. AND 2 years came fast!!


happy growing ladies

Current products
Because i have been receiving lots of questions about my current regimen I decided to make an album about products i use. I will try to be as honest as possible without being bias.

hope this helps some of you, and remember WHAT WORKS FOR ONE MAY NOT WORK FOR THE OTHER.
