The Prodigal Blogger Returns



I know I know I know. Where the hell have I been?!?! Well since my last post in...NOVEMBER I had to kind of put my laptop away for financial reasons and I finally got it back. Hair wise I am still at a crossroads because I have no idea what I want to do. I relaxed my hair the day before Christmas Eve at a salon that I saw one of my sorority sisters go to and had rave reviews about. I will have more to say about that later (it’s good though trust me). After relaxing my hair I have been back and forth with myself about whether I want to continue to stay relaxed (hubby would prefer I did) or go back natural (my checkbook would prefer if I did). Personally I love my hair either way and they both have their advantages and disadvantages. Right off the bat I know that if I did finally decide to go back to my fro, I would big chop because long term transition is not my cup of tea. I suffer from breakage and lots of shedding and I can be doing everything right. As far as the little ones and hair go, they have been rocking braids that their teacher put in for them. I think that it is time to take them out though because they are starting to get a bit fuzzy and they both need shampoos and deep conditioning. 

In the mean time I had surgery on my ankle because of a tendon tear. I will be documenting my healing from that on my other blog Tales of a Thirty Something Mommy. What is so bad about having surgery on my ankle as it relates to my hair is that I can’t bear weight for another 10 days which means when I shower I have to sit in a shower chair. The one I have only faces forward, so washing my hair would be a bit awkward. I am thinking about washing my hair in the sink tonight because it needs it badly. If all goes well I will be sure to update you about my wash day. 

Oh I am also part of Hairlista’s Castor Oil Challenge and while before my surgery I was on the ball, after wards has been sort of a challenge in itself. Now that I’m getting a bit better and ready to get back on my healthy hair journey hustle, I will be sure to update you on my progress there. The last time I participated back in 2012 if I’m not mistaken, my hair really flourished and thrived. Well that’s it as far as an update goes. I would like to say thank you and welcome to all my new followers on Bloglovin’. Sorry again for being MIA but trust me, this time I am back for good.
Take care and see you next time.....
