Limited Time Only

I really hate that I don't have a lot of time for my blog right now.  School just started and between lesson plans and my certification classes, I barely have time for myself.  Please don't leave me faithful followers.  I will at least try to post pics when I style my hair.  Things will look better in a few weeks when I'm caught up with everything.  I love you guys (ladies)!

Til next time, thanks for reading.  Be blessed.

Mega Tek Experiment: Month 1

It's been exactly one month since I got the Mega Tek I ordered and started using it.  I've applied almost every night  for the past 30 days to my hair line.  I didn't expect to see any results and I don't.  But I'm not discouraged.  I know it's going to take time because the thinning didn't  occur overnight.

The above was taken on July 1.

The above was taken today, August 1.

I don't see any difference. I figured if I saw some progress this soon, this stuff would be flying off the shelves!  Has anyone else tried this stuff?  If so, what has been your results so far?

That's all for now. So til next time, thanks for reading.  Be blessed.

New Job Curls

*I named this post just for Nessa. ;)

So, I got a new job (a job I wanted) which is truly a blessing in today's economy.  Thank you JESUS!!  (It's a science teacher position in a local school disrict.  I start on August 4th).
Anyway, I was stressing about my hair because I had to go fill out paper work and take my ID picture for my new job last Monday (7/19 actually).  My hair needed to be washed (and a retwist wouldn't hurt) but I was being so lazy.  I still had curls left so this is how my ID pic turned out:

The picture doesn't look bad but my scalp was nasty.  So I ended up washing my hair Monday evening (7/19) even though I didn't feel like it.  And I didn't really know what I planned to do with it.  On one hand, I wanted curls but didn't really feel like rolling it.  On the other hand, I wanted to retwist it but I didn't feel like doing that either. Doing both would have taken TOO long.  So I just washed and conditioned then braided it into 8 big braids for a lazy braidout.

My hair was nice and soft and shiny but I didn't like the braidout. (Sorry no pics of the results).  It was too hot to have my hair down but I didn't want to do a ponytail either (I know.  I'm crazy).  So I went ahead and rolled my hair Tuesday night.  I left the pipe cleaners in all day Wednesday and finally took them out Thursday morning in time for new employee orientation.  That's how I got New Job Curls.

I put 2 locs on each pipe cleaner.  And a word of advice:  Don't roll your hair too tight or it will be hard to remove the pipe cleaners.  I was almost late trying to get the things out of my head!!  I've never had that issue before but I know I rolled it really tight.  But as you can tell (if you've been keeping  up with me), I REALLY love this style.  This is how I've worn my hair all summer.  It has kept me cool and it has also kept me from putting my hair in a ponytail. ;)  I gotta come up with something new for the fall/winter.

This post was drafted 2 weeks ago when all of this occured but my pics were on my phone. My phone got  temporarily destroyed when it was accidently dropped in water.  Anyway, no pics=no post.  So this is what my curls look like  now, almost 2 weeks later.

The heat and humidity have caused the curls to fall a LOT. The curls are usually not this loose 2 weeks later.  Oh well.

Til next time, thanks for reading.
