How Does This Thing Work Again???

This site used to have a crazy complicated way I had to add photos in the past. I know a little more HTML now so this might actually be fun, I can get creative! I want to write some blogs about weight loss, and nutritional supplements. I have learned so much over the years, what works, what doesn't. I need to document it somewhere.... might as well be here...

I can also write about my hair journey! The two are actually related in a strange way. I didn't think I could have beautiful long natural hair and be active at the same time. In the past it was definately harder because we didn't have faux ponytails and access to Instant Weaves, etc. Now there are many styling options that will allow me to be active and maintain nice hairstyles at the same time!

This is my hair now. I had to do a big chop because I abused it by wearing braids back to back to back to back never letting it rest. I wore the braids because they allowed me the freedom of working out without worrying about my hair. This is the price I am paying now. I have to hide my hair for about a year before it will be normal again. I've never worn my hair's not becoming on me in my opinion.

Thanks to the LHCF, I am actually enjoying this journey. I put it off for so long because I didn't know what to do... Not only have I learned how to nurture my hair back to health at the LHCF but I have come to meet some dynamic beatiful sisters from all over the country, abroad! How cool is that!! So now I have a place to plop pictures of my progress. Cool!

Weavy Woman!

I was pretty lean back then...I'm on my way back but I don't want to get too gaunt in the face...not a good look for me!

A Quest for Balance

I forgot about my blog for a long while, what an excellent way to chronicle progress in your life. I love setting intentions, doing check points and progress reports so I will begin again.

I have many goals, the two I will focus on here for now will be fitness and hair health. I kept my hair in braids forever and it took its toll on my hair line and the overall condition of my hair. I found the Long Hair Care Forum when I was in a panic about what I should do for my hair. The board has delivered so much more than hair care tips for me. There is a definate sisterhood there, which is such a definate bonus for me.

All the BEST!
