This week I was suppose to do my first review as promised. Unfortunately, I have been so busy packing and moving I just haven't gotten the time to sit down and write it. However, I do have the picture I was going to post of my results so far since starting the challenge.

The proof is in the pudding

Excuse my face, I am exhausted and operating on 4 hours of sleep

Quick Challenge Update

I took down the two cornrows in the front perimeter of my hair tonight after oiling my scalp to moisturize my hair. While I am in cornrows I do not take them down to perform the L.O.C method, I just spritz my hair with water. Since I use a pretty heavy oil, I find that when I am in cornrows that water will suffice until I do a complete take it down. I am wigging it while in cornrows, so the front tends to get a little bit drier than the rest.   I was very surprised to see that I had growth. I did not expect to see any growth because I dusted my ends two weeks into this challenge but I got GROWTH!!!! I can't wait to share pictures. I didn't take any tonight because I need to wash my hair and I didn't want it resting against my face for too long. I can be paranoid like that when it comes to break outs. Hopefully pics will be up this weekend.

Time to get back to hair I love thee. I am a recovering product junkie. I was just like every other woman who decided to make a life change when I cut my hair. Going natural after years better yet decades of relaxing your hair, I think we tend jump into the mind frame of "I have to find what works for my hair" but at any cost. I think it's natural after every 6 to 8 weeks of slathering a relaxer on your hair, you found what worked or somewhat worked for your chemically treated hair, so you want to find your new staples...but in a month or two. Then you start stressing and getting fed up with your hair and thoughts of the creamy crack start dancing like sugar plums in your head. When it took probably years to find out what worked for you while you were relaxed. See, where I am going...I know it's getting a bit redundant but I want it to stick in your mind. This way you won't turn in to like a product junkie like me. You haven't seen this "new" texture in years be patient and listen, your hair will tell you what it needs.

Jumps off soap box...

I plan on doing one product review each week for 7 weeks.  It will feature the good, the bad and the ugly for me; meaning what worked for me or did not. I will try my best to only feature products that you can obtain in sample sizes, if you are interested. I am not being paid by any of the companies featured and all products were purchased by lil ol" me.  Also, I will share a tip that I believe will help you quiet your inner junkie or ease the frustration that you might be going through after each review. Until then here is one for free:

Tip #:1 You hair is as unique and beautiful as you are. The same way there is only one you; each one of your coils, kinks and curls are its own individual. Keep your head up, God makes no mistakes and he definitely didn't do it with your hair.
