Updates and Summer Plans

Mini Update:

Vegas Selfie from last weekend
Hey ladies! It's been a while since my last post. I haven't really been doing much to my hair. In fact, I have been down right lazy. I've been washing only once a week and some weeks not even deep conditioning just a cowash. I am coming up on 40 weeks post this Thursday. Despite my laziness my hair is still thriving. I got it done at the Huetiful Salon on the 16th. My experience was very good just like my first visit. I don't have any pictures because I couldn't get a decent one so I don't have a length check for you guys but I'm getting close to the line 14. Just a bit of personal info. I had a nice mini vacay in Vegas last weekend. My hair held up pretty nicely despite the high temps. The pic to the left is how my hair looked 2 days after getting it done.

Summer Plans:

Here is what I plan on doing for the summer.

I have been taking Manetabolism Vitamins since the of October. I've been on a very small break from the vitamins just to give my body a break. I will be starting back taking them daily on June 1st.

Deep Conditioning:
I will be steaming once a week. The warmer weather should help with moisture retention. So DCing twice a week might not be necessary.

Limit Heat Usage.:
I'll give myself a heat pass once a month.

Working out 3 times a week.

I don't eat fruits and vegetables like I should. I will be incorporating them into my eating habits. Also I will be drinking more protein shakes. I will be ordering more Shakeology soon.


  1. Your hair looks beautiful! Do you really notice a difference in your hair when you steam condition versus using a hooded dryer?

    1. I haven't deep conditioned under a hooded dryer in quite some time but there is definitely a difference. The conditioner sinks into my hair so much more when using my steamer. I most definitely feel the difference when my hair has been flat ironed. My straightened hair feels softer after it has been steamed.

  2. 40 weeks post wow, that amazing. Are you transitioning or just stretching?

    1. I'm gonna try to go a year without relaxing and go from there. Right now I'm just taking it one day at a time.

  3. You hair is looking great! You are doing really well at 40 weeks post! Good luck with your summer plans!

    1. Thank you so much! I hope things continue to go this well.
