So Let's Talk...

On my last post I talked about getting rid of some of these aggravating ends and I did just that. I had my hair done by Nina Christmas at the Huetiful Salon and she did a great job. She is all about educating her clients. She gave me a mirror to show what she doing with my hair during the shampoo and conditioning phase. Giving me pointers on how to deal with my hair. She is also super sweet and has a lot of energy. I know that they want you to utilize the other stylists at the shop but she will be my go-to.

Moving on. The pic first picture was after she started cutting. I told her during our mini consultation when I first sat down that I wanted to get an inch cut off. So after she blow dried my hair she went got some paper towels and pinned them to the cape and gave me a mirror. She showed my where one inch would be and I told her to take it up some more. All in all about 3 in or so where taken off. After the initial cut she went through and did another nice trim to clean it up and I loved it. I don't have a picture of the completed trim but my hair looks so much better after getting rid of those ends.

My plan is to go back on my birthday, which is at the end of August, and maybe do another cut depending on how much growth I retain between now and then. I'll do my best to try and limit my heat usage. I have been all about length retention lately because I have goals in mind about how long I want to get my hair but now I am focusing on keeping my hair healthy and trimming my ends. Don't get it twisted I still want my hair to be longer but I want to get more new growth in before the bone straight ends are completely gone. It could be another year to year and half before I decid to cut them all off.
Now as far as whether or not I am transitioning, I'm keeping it label and care free. As I have stated before and I know I sound like a broken record but I still have no desire to relax my hair any time soon or to big chop. I'm taking it one day at a time and enjoying the ride. My hair has been thriving and I love it.

    1. I really enjoy going there. I made my next appointment already. Lol Keeping this phase of HJ label free keeps it drama free. Just the way it should be.

  2. That girl hooks your hair UP Candace! I WISH I could find someone that I trust to handle my hair with such care. I don't blame you for not wanting to 'label' your relaxer stretch. Just go with the flow girl, you are doing an amazing job!

    1. Yes she did! I love her professionalism and energy. I felt like my hair was in good hands with her. I already made my appointment with her for next month. Her appointment slots fill up fast so I had to stalk her schedule to make sure I could get in. I'm glad they brought the salon here. I loved having my cousin do my hair but during this new phase I think it's time to move on. Keeping it label free makes it more enjoyable.
