Need to Post for August... Update on Hair and Weight Loss Journey
Well I know I have been really bad about updating my blog although I view and comment on everyone else's almost daily. I have had some kind of Month of August with my Hair and my Weight.
In the picture above I have pulled an Old Faux Puff right out of the closet and put my hair away. I love the faux puff and most people think it is mine and really compliment me on this look.
I have been teetering back and forth about what to do about my hair. I enjoy trying to grow it but I also would love a little more effortless look with a shorter cut. The shorter cut would allow me to really let my coils pop and give an illusion of more fullness/density and allow the hair to stand up and out. Of course I don't do length checks but sometimes I feel my hair is not growing to its full potential although I know that I am not spending very much time with caring for it. In the summer months its just too darn easy to wash n go. I try to use good products and believe me, don't get it twisted, I will use cones in the summer months to combat the frizz and lock in the moisture and not let the humidity take control of my hair in the DMV.
This past week I ordered some product from Hairveda which I have not received yet but wanted to try due to the Sale ending August 31st. With Irene coming to town that has made my order delayed although we are both in Maryland. This past weekend the Baltimore Meetup was to take place but was canceled because of Irene. I still showed up at the Oyin (Exit the Apple) and got more Whipped Pudding,BSP and 16 oz Hair Dew and now they have postponed until this weekend. I will go to the meetup but I am done buying product (Unless there is a good discount offered). From Hairveda, I oredered the Whipped Cream, Whipped Jelly, some samples of Avosoya Light Oil, Almond glaze and acai berry phyto conditioner. I was hopping to receive so I could order more things if I liked them. I may still order some of the Super Friends (Duo) because at 30% off the product junkie in me needs a fix!
Sorry that you have to turn your head cause I could not get that picture to post upright.
In the Month of August I gained 3 pounds and was really lazy with my food intake even though not as lazy with my exercise. I am on a mission again to get rid of the 3 plus 7 more pounds in the month of September and I promise to post more often. Until then I will continue to Lurk other peoples blogs and try to focus more time on my hair and weight journey as I am home alone with my dog Cocoa until the Winter College Break! God Bless and I will promise a blog at least once/twice a week for the month of September. Bowling Season has started as well so I will be a busy person! Ciao for now!
