Sally's GVP Joico K-Pak

So I've been using this for about three weeks and I must say that I am in love. This reconstructor has my hair feeling stronger and thicker!!! I think this may be a keeper. I have been using this weekly, following it up with my deep conditioner, and rollersetting for the past three weeks. I have seen a noticeable difference in my hair. This just may be the product to help me retain every bit of growth I get this year....

New Goal!!!!!

So, I've realized that I only have about 1.5" til I'm touching BSL. I'm pretty confident that I'll reach that goal so I've changed my goal for this year. I am going to go for MBL by December 31,2009. I only have 4.5" til I hit this goal so I believe it is pretty realistic for me (12" mark on my t-shirt). Hopefully I can get to MBL or close to it.
(Also, I have 9" til I get to WL, my ultimate goal for now)

Last night I realized that.......my nape is BREAKING!!!!! I just about screamed. I decided "That's enough, no more flat ironing for me." I had flat ironed my hair for the holiday and prior to this there was no breakage. Now my nape has broken off to about shoulder length.:( I refuse to let this set me back. I am so close to my goal. Time for me to baby that area while continuing to care for my hair.

Aug. 15,2008-Dec. 31,2008 Progress

I know I'm a bit late with this...but here is my progress for the end of 2008. I would have liked to see more progress but I can't complain. I retained about 1.5 inches in 4 months (after a dusting)!!!! This year I hope to see even more progress.

In Search of a New Moisturizer

I have come to the conclusion that the cause of my once again frizzy ends is glycerin based products. My hair DOES NOT like them. Glycerin is drying my ends out. At first, glycerin products such as Wave Nouveau and Care Free Gold seemed to be helping. Now after using them for a few months, my ends are once again dryer than the Sahara Desert. I do not have split ends because I just dusted my ends and there's not a split in sight. This is very frustrating and I must do something about it ASAP!!!! I refuse to let this stop me from reaching my goal for this year.
