Since I started a new job in August, I haven't had much time to blog. I have even had to cut back on my bi-weekly washes. I am now a once a week type of girl. It isn't awful but I truly believe I have an oily scalp and by Wednesday or Thursday my hair is slightly greasy.
I am currently 6 weeks post relaxer with no plans to relax anytime soon. Earlier this year I had tons of new growth at this time and I actually gave in and texlaxed at 7 weeks post. This time around I definitely don't have as much growth. The only difference is I don't eat as many carrots as I used to. Earlier this year, I was a carrot addict and my hair was growing like a weed. I have been working at my new job for about 5 weeks now and I really have not been eating 1-2 carrots as I did in the past. So, I am even more convinced now that the carrots really did have an impact on my growth rate. I am going to make an effort to reintroduce carrots into my diet.
Other than that, I don't really have that many updates. I probably will texlax my hair at 10 or 11 weeks post. I am still to buy those silk shirts so I can start to wear my hair out. I have been bunning and wearing updos exclusively for such a long period of time that I hardly recognise myself when I do leave my hair out. I am well aware of just how strange that sounds and I intend to do better. In any case, I feel like I am stuck in a rut and need a change, especially appearance-wise. Besides, why am I growing my hair if all I want to do is hide it away? I need to reap all the benefits of my hair. Updos and buns look better the longer your hair gets but I should always be able to wear my hair down and have fun with it.
