January 7th 2012 - What's New What's up :)

We have completed one whole week into 2012 and next week is my birthday :)

I am 21.6 on the BMI scale, not trying to lose any more weight at all. I am still exercising because it is the right thing for me to do to keep healthy along with eating right. I figure the safe weight for me is 115 Lower end, 120 is what I want to keep at (a little less then that now) and 125 is the max I want to be. I think I look great and want to keep it healthy and toned.

OKAY...... So I am going to go for a 24-36 month Transition. I have a ton of products to use up and I don't want to have short hair, been there DONE THAT. I have balded myself quite enough. Soooooooo. What I am going to do is just keep it trimmed at hip. I am HIP length Whew hew. I will keep it there. I am healthy relaxed right now and a little concerned about long term transitioning issues as I have never transitioned I have just shaved myself when I wanted a change.

Today I washed my hair with Wen Fig. I used Kerapro Intensive treatment (HATED IT) I wanted to love it, I did. but No bueno! So I did use my DRC after, with me having 6 months, and 2 days post relaxer, My hair needs to stay strong so it can stay attached. I put a metallic conditioning cap. I rinsed that out and used Alter Ego Garlic Conditioner & Proclaim Hydrating masque put the same cap on, because I am cheap.... and left it on for an hour, rinsed and BAM hair was soft as baby butter bottom cotton swab with cotton candy. hehehehehe

I used my HAIRSENSE Seamless comb that I have owned for about 2 years and I still love it to detangle. I also used my Denman (It is new) to detangle. Detangling session was great.

I put in some Buriti Oil, sat under the dryer for 10 minutes. Combed through again and blow dried. After I put it up in a pony tail and slapped my Tisha Half Wig ON :)

My plans for my LONG term Transition is Lots of HALF WIGS.

I hope to cut it when it is MBL.

I do still plan to use my curlformers. I don't wear my hair out right now but maybe one to two times a year so that is fine. I rock wigs alot or buns that won't stop. :)


  1. I've been wanting to try Alter Ego with garlic for a while now. How do you like it? Does it help you with shedding?

  2. I LOVE IT, for sure. I definitely think it helps with the shedding. It softens the hair up something unbelievable helps melt my new growth :)
    Definitely pick it up. I buy the large container and it last me the whole year.

  3. Congrats on deciding to transition. I would love to see pics of your hair. I have tried the Alter Ego w/ Garlic DC and I didn't really like it, not because it was bad but because I expected more. At the time I purchased it, it was so hyped up that I just knew it would take me to the moon it back. It was kind of blah for me. Glad you like though, especially with all of the new growth you have. Again, much success and many pic, right!!??

  4. LaQT, I am so sad it didn't work for you. I love that stuff. Yet, I leave it on for an hour under that Metallic cap. Something about that cap boost my conditioners though :) I buy those buy the case :).

    I will post pictures LOL of my new growth LOL. No length checks until December. :) (maybe June)

    But I will be taking pics of the New growth a few times this year :).

    I was super excited about the Kerapro like that, I was so SURE it was going to be the best thing since the microwave and it wasn't. :(

  5. Congrats on your decision! I'm excited to follow another LONG term transitioner! Had no idea you were even considering it.

    I'm SOOOOO SAD you hated the Kerapro! I was wondering what everyone else's thoughts/experiences would be. I'm so in love with it, I figured everyone else would be too! hahahaha! At least it was only $5 wasted though, right? :(

  6. ECP Thanks so much. I wasn't, I was going to cut it all off. LOL,

    Can you tell me how you use it. I am going to try it again, next wash. I wanted to LOVE it so bad. LOL. HUH, I bought 2 so I do hope I love or like it by the next time. :) My hair is protein hungry so I figured this would be a hit. THE ELixar was dead on, Great stuff :)

    Thanks again EC Princess :)

  7. Good luck on your transition!!

  8. Ally Thanks so much. I have at least 24-31 months ahead of me so sis I think I will definitely need that luck LOL!

  9. With the Shedding I'm having I am willing to give it a try. I will definitely be purchasing it over the next two weeks.
