Well I guess I will stop counting the days...

I have been so busy that my blogs are not daily. For all those reading I apologize. I was in Miami last week for my birthday which was on December 9th. I had a blast. The first time I ever celebrated my birthday on the beach in the sand. Of course it was a last minute trip and I didn't even have time to get my hair done. My boyfriend/ fiancee or whatever you want to call him said Saturday morning let's go, and off we went. We packed in 15 minutes and got on the plane at 2:45. So typical of me, just care free, not worried about the economy, business being abnormal with many slow days. I didn't care I just wanted a break from it all and I was glad I did. I got my hair done by a young lady in Miami because as you know from my last post I had on a half wig. Can't walk on the beach or go swimming with that, it could have easily blown off. LOL! I had to find someone quick to sew in a weave, thank God for the internet. I found a college student that gave me the BOMB weave! I couldn't have done it better myself. I didn't even have to change it or correct it, it was perfect. I wish she lived in MD I would give her a job at the salon.

She first braided my hair backwards and for all those reading, any one braiding your hair in a circular pattern, stop them right away.. and run for your dear life. Circular patterns are very primitive and only amateurs braid in weaves that way. Anyway, she then stitched in my tracks very flat and smooth. I added color #1B solid in the back and #1B and #30 in the front, with a part down the middle. I thought I was Beyonce! LOL! It just blew in the wind,... it was gorgeous. Now that I am back home I just shampooed my hair with my soy protein shampoo and conditioner and it sure needed it because it was dirty and the tracks were starting to clump together. I bought Sensational hair from the beauty supply store while I was in Miami and now I regret it. It is not Remy hair.. trust me I know better, but it was all they had in this particular store, so I got it. I am going to have to take it out soon because as you all know it only last a couple of weeks.
I am still in my treatment phase so whats more important to me is the condition of my hair. My boyfriend thinks I am bald headed because I always wear weaves, so I want to surprise him when I take it out and it is just as long and strong as the weave. I can't lie I am addicted to weaves because they always look good, they are easy to manage, and you can flat iron and curl as much as you like without worrying about destroying your own hair. To make it short they make my hectic life much easier. If you have never worn a weave you should try it, you will be addicted to them quickly because they require less maintenance.
I am still taking my vitamins and infusing my hair with the soy protein conditioner. I also used a cap full of olive oil to help with my dry scalp especially during the winter months. I have about 4 new leave in conditioners that I have been testing for about 6 months on myself, my daughter and a few of my clients. One of them is strictly a vitamin and protein conditioner but it does not detangle my daughters hair. Her hair is extremely dry and tangles a lot, so I am probably going to combine it with the one that seems to work well on her hair. I can not eliminate the vitamins and protein from the ingredient however, it is just as imperative that the leave in conditioner detangles as well as repairs..
I know I have been saying this for a week but I am going to post pictures soon. I broke my digital camera and when we went to Miami we bought CVS disposable cameras. Hmmmm....Don't worry pictures are coming........
