Hey everyone. I hadn't managed to put this post up earlier thanks to internet connectivity issues, and just feeling low. But I am back now :)
I ended up moving my wash day from Saturday to Sunday. Saturday was one of my closest friend's birthday and I had to go and enjoy the day with the rest of the gang. It was a great party and even the drama that happened at the end wasn't enough to count it as a night well spent.
So on Sunday, I was pretty hungover from the party, and still tired. So I decided to do a quickie wash. I first did 8 box braids for my wash day while waiting for the water to get warm. I first washed my hair and scalp using Dudu Osun black soap. I rinsed off the soap, and then did a DC with ORS Replenishing conditioner for an hour. I rinsed off with cool water, and did a vinegar rinse (1 part vinegar to 2 parts water) before wrapping my hair in a t-shirt. By then it was pretty late, so I decided to blow dry my hair to shorten the drying process, and bunned for bed. And that was it for my wash day.
I'm going to be honest with y'all, I am currently 8 months post and I'm seriously thinking of going back to the relaxer. I know someone (I see you Curly Eva) will be laughing at me, but honestly I can't take the way my hair has been acting lately. I have had a series of consecutive bad hair days, and I think of when I had texlaxed hair that would act with slightly more decency that my current new growth. I honestly don't know what to do anymore. I guess what I will do at the moment is extend my stretch/transition to 1 year post, and then reevaluate and decide on a course of action after that.
In other (better) news, I am happy to see results from my last set of inversions. I trimmed off some of my hair before my last wash day, and I did my inversions during the week after (14th - 18th July). And I regained the length I lost from trimming :). I am happy about this. I may still get to BSL at the end of the year.
Well, that's it from me. Until the next time...
Peace and love,
