4 weeks left update - November 30, 2011

With only a little over 4 weeks left not too much is going on.
I started a new work out program Jillian Ripped in 30. I need to go do it now, YIKES, she is working my but out. I am 119.9 lbs I need to tone up my abs and arms and I'd be one happy camper. :)
I don't want to lose anymore weight, GOSH I don't want to be 98 lbs again. I don't want that. I like a little meat on my bones LOL
My hair was in braids for 3 weeks, I took it out Sunday. My edges feel dry. I am going to do an intense moisturized program this week. Especially since I am going back up in braids and I am doing a DRC-28 treatment this week. I will steam in an oil treatment & alter ego mix.
I am going to leave those braids in for 3 weeks then leave it out a week, so December 25th I am breaking my hair down washing DEEP conditioning it because I am going to flat iron my hair or do a Curlformer rod set. I think I'd rather straight so I can take the end of the year pictures. :) My pics will be up by January 1st hopefully no later then January 31st 2012. I see no reason why it can't be up by January 1st though :)

Hair Update - November 8, 2011

I took my five week old braids down 2 sundays ago.
I had bumps which I have never had in my life :( , They were big and gross.
I think a few strands were being pulled in a weird direction and caused this.
I washed my hair 3 times with WEN FIG, APhogee 2 minute for 20, and Alter Ego for 30 minutes under my Self Heating Cap. I twisted it up into a bun and called it a day.
On November 6, 2011 - I washed my hair once with WEN Fig, Used Porosity Control for 1 minute, Rinsed. I applied DRC-28 to my hair for 25 minutes and sat under the dryer, Rinsed, Applied Alter Ego Garlic Conditioner to my hair, then applied Proclaim Hydrating Masque on top of it. I sat under the steamer for 30 minutes. I haven't steamed in so long, My hair thanked me.
I applied Buriti Oil sat under the dryer let it dry and then Tangle Teezed it through, blow dried, then applied Wen Fig Oil. Yummy, My hair was airy and flowy.
I then parted and braided it up! My hair feels awesome. Healthy and it definitely grew. LOL
I have started taking my vitamins which I am only taking because I did purchase them and I hate waste :( so Will be taking these vitamins. Nioxin *which doesn't work by the way IMHO!
Oh well, My plans are as follows:
Wig it up 3 weeks at a time -
Leave it out for one week
Wig up again 3 weeks and continue the cycle.
Steam my hair once every 8 weeks with Alter Ego Garlic Conditioner and Proclaim Hydrating Masque Mix
DRC once every 8 weeks
I still use Wen to clean my hair. :) I have no issues with it.
I am expecting for 2012- 2 trims and 2 dustings to happen.
I want to use up lots of products I have only purchased the WEN Ginger Pumpkin (3) so I haven't really been investing in much.
I am giving away product
Selling other product
So go figure! My stash should be down eventually :)
