[Circa 2008, please excuse the winter acne...]
It's one of my favorite months of the year, besides my birthday. I just think the culture behind this month makes it a really beautiful month. *Sigh* I'm actually having a good hair day tonight. I'm pleased that I have about half an inch of new growth. But my front just doesn't curl at all anymore. All the hair dying has really killed my curl pattern, and I'm glad I stopped the obsession. The back of my hair, the curls really pop, they look amazing. If I smooth them out, they are smoothed out. I do like the fashion that hair dye brings, but I think a lot of the reason for dying so much was a way to relax my curls, especially in the back. When I didn't properly know how to detangle my hair, I got matting all the time. Whether I dyed my hair or not. I've learned a lot in my journey, and I think I still have a lot to learn. I just want to really exhibit my hair's full potential of being a beautiful head of curls. Of course I want length, I would be really happy if my curls grew to brastrap length unstretched within the next couple years. Right now, I am just focusing on growing out the dyed hair and getting my hair back into a natural, healthy state.
I purchased a jar of Coconut oil, a Denham brush, and a bottle of Aloe Vera gel a couple weeks ago. The first night I used the denham brush and coconut oil together, I got gorgeous results. But my hair hated the way I used the denham brush once it dried. I haven't really got the technique down, so I'm avoiding a $13 brush. I still can't believe I paid $13 for a brush, really?
