Hair Blab!

  • I relaxed my hair on July 21st after stretching for seven months. I'm in the process of finishing the blog post. I just have to edit my pictures.
  • Jen from JustGrowAlready inspired me to organize my hair products. Well that and seeing how messy my cabinets in my bathroom are. I will definitely share pictures once everything is complete. 
  • I think I may be suffering from my 1st set back. I experienced some breakage from stretching my hair so long and not properly caring for it. I'm sure no matter how I moisturized and sealed I would still have some breakage, but not to this magnitude. I will be sharing more about this in my relaxer update
  • I used Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle as a co-wash and I'm in LOVE!!!!!! I will be sharing a more detailed review of this product next week!
  • I contemplated transitioning to natural hair during my 7th month stretch. I decided against it for a few reasons. One, I'm still learning about my relaxed hair and don't want to start a new journey until I fill like I've been successful at this one. Secondly, I'm not ready to have short hair and I would definitely have to BC to minimize damage to my hair (breakage). 
  • I'm really hoping and praying that I don't have postpartum shedding as I did with my son. I shed terribly for a year. This is what led me to information on starting my healthy hair journey.
  • I really need a good trim. I think I will wait until my next relaxer which I plan to do in 16 weeks. 
  • I'm really happy that I have the energy to do my own hair again. I missed giving my hair the proper TLC it deserves
  • I miss the smooth sleek look of my bone straight relaxed hair. I do love that my hair is much thicker and healthier now.
  • I want to try Hairfinity Vitamins, but I need to check with my doctor and pharmacist first. Yes, I check with my pharmacist before taking medications. They know the medications better than physicians IMO. I actually read every paper given to me by the pharmacy before consuming and medications or giving my children any medication. Maybe it's the nurse in me. 
  • I will be trying more styles soon! 
  • I look forward to growing my daughter's hair. I think by me being relaxed and her being natural I will have the best of both worlds.
  • I need to start babying my hair again. When I first started my HHJ I was faithful with mixing my d/c, oiling my scalp, and pre-pooing. My hair thrived from this. I'm going bk to weekly washes and deep conditioning. 


  1. Another Aussie moist lover! I can hear the excitement in your voice about growing your daughter hair.

  2. 7 month stretch!!!!m I was amazed, but when you mentioned being post partum, it made more sense. i can't stretch beyond 5 months, my hair would be a terror to detangle. Well done and i can't wait to see the pics.

  3. Aussie Moist is one of my favorite products! I'm glad I stumbled upon it, have you used anything else from the Aussie line?

  4. Holy hell, 7 months?! I can barely make it to 4 before being driven crazy by the new growth, lol.

    A friend of mine kept taking her pre-natal vitamins after she gave birth, and according to her it curbed the post-partum shedding big time. Maybe you can talk to your doc and pharmacist as to the advisability of it.

  5. 7 month stretch! Congrats on making it to the end. Here's a post about my experience with PP shedding



  6. Congratulations on your 7 month stretch. I'm glad that you really loved the Aussie Moist 3 Minute Miracle. Since I love the Aussie Moist Hair Insurance, I really need to try the 3 minute miracle.

  7. A 7 month stretch!! Congrats :)
