My eyes look so red in this pic, I am learning to operate on just enough sleep to keep me healthy and sane.. its all good!
I checked in last night, and you saw my hair which is consistently in braids or a braid out these days, today its a little bigger and very soft. During my pregnancy I had a very very lowÂ maintenanceÂ routine and if there was a lesson to be *re-learned* it would be that less is always more Â – Â less styling, less product, less fuss!
I think overall my hair felt *thicker* – my hair was always thick but it did feel more dense at times. (could have been my mind playing tricks on me too)
pre natal vitamin effect- Â I will go out on a limb here and say that IÂ don’tÂ think the vitamins helped in growth. Sometimes I do give a side eye to ladies that choose to buy the prenatal pills while notÂ pregnantÂ for the sake of gaining length, I am just not sure if its needed really. I think it served the intended purpose, keeping me healthy for my son. What really helped with growth in my opinion is a moisture based/lowÂ maintenanceÂ regimen ~ hands down.
General Hair health – I think my hair needs some attention, maybe a protein treatment, I slacked on my deep conditioning regimen, I pretty much only co-washed for the entire time. I did shampoo occasionally when I felt gooky but other than that, IÂ didn’tÂ mix or apply ish to my hair for no longer than it took to take a shower.
Trim- Lord knows I need one, I slacked on search and destroy and its too far gone to start now, I still get some single strand knots even with stretching – so it would be nice to get a hair cut and start fresh.
Hair Length – longest portion is mid back, a flat iron would really help me to determine where I am.
Shedding – No more than normal ( I am waiting for the great shed)
new products Â -I did pick up the Carols Daughter Mimosa Hair Honey – that willÂ definitelyÂ remain a staple of mine. Its like having a grease but not! Love it, great sealant and great for added softness.
I cant think of anything else, as things get better at home with the cherub, I should be back on my grind, IÂ don’tÂ have any new hair goals but I do have some for me personally that my hair should benefit from. In the mean time I want to find the time to go get my hair done.
