It has been a mighty long time...
Too long in fact. I missed my 1 year Nappiversary because I was on holiday running around Europe....
I have really neglected my hair. I think I washed it once the whole time I was away. I exposed it to extreme heat, chlorine, cotton (pillowcases lol)...
I blew my hair out the night before I travelled and tried to keep it like that for the first week or so of the trip. Greece was HOT and my hair was exposed everyday. The second week was a bit trickier but somehow I managed. I did NOT de-tangle, wash, comb, brush, moisturise regularly, condition or protective style as much as I should have. Even with all of this it seems to be ok. Even when I got back it took a few days for me to muster the strength and courage to de-tangle, co-wash and deep condition it. I did an overnight deep condition for good measure.
It was feeling pretty parched and brittle, but it's soft again now. What I reeeeeeally need is a good hair cut. Not a trim, I think I need a cut. But taking the time to find a salon where I think they'll do a good job. I probably sound paranoid but anyone on this 'natural hair journey' knows that a year of relatively healthy growth is not something that should be taken for granted. So I have to make sure I do that.
Until then, I have my graduation to prepare for. I'll be back to my regular posting and video uploads after that.
I also have some Good Hair contributions to post from like 3 months ago. Can't believe it's taken me this long to get around to it. Shame.
Anywhooooooo, that's all for now folks,
Oh and here it is: One year of Growth; June 2011 - June 2012 :)
