September '13 Length Check

After a month of having to do my own hair, it's September Length Check time.
Sept 1 = 83 weeks natural (~1 year 8 months),
42 weeks since the BC (~10.5 months)

October 2 = 87 weeks natural (~1 year 9 months),
46 weeks since the BC (~11.5 months)
So, what have I learned this month??
  • First...I learned I need to go to the salon!! LOL. I love my natural curly hair, but I don't have the time to devote to it to make more creative styles. Some times I have the time, but I just don't feel like it! I basically wear the same style every day and that's boring to me. I want more versatility (which I know I can obtain since I have natural hair) but I need to be able to tap into that. I don't want to have to "go to the salon" because I want "this style or that one" today. I want to be able to practice versatility on my own. So, I either need to find salon quick, fast, and in a hurry or learn the skills. We'll see which of those happens first.
  • I've also been experimenting with different products and I've found one I really like (blog post to come soon).
  • I'm in desperate need of a trim so my hair is shedding more and more each day. Even though I see this growth, I know it's for nil since I'll be getting it trimmed soon.
  • I also asked my readers about detangling. Since I've washed my hair several times this month, I've found that it's better, for me, to detangle with a wide tooth comb. I actually take the time to separate my hair into six sections (while conditioning) and I detangle each section separately, then all together. I may try that method with a brush, just to see how it goes...but for now, I'm sticking with the's easier to chop away at the tangles!
Me and this hair, right?!! :-)
So, there are my September updates and my official goodbye to my blessed birthday month. I want to promise myself a few things moving forward:
  • I'll try my best not to move on my birthday ever again. This has happened twice and it definitely takes away from the occasion that I spend all year waiting for.
  • I need to plan an event for my birthday next year (or maybe the year after, since that'll be a milestone year). Either way, I've got to plan something!
This computer thing is really killing me. I'm not able to do what I need to do when I need to do it. Thank God for all these devices (iPad and phone) but using those things don't compare to using a computer. Using my computer at work makes me have to do rush jobs on my posts (so if they read kind of funny, that's why)! I'm pushing through and I'm going to claim a new computer by Thanksgiving!!
Have a great day y'all!

  1. omg i have not been to a salon in almost 2 years... i really need to go. I have the unprofessional ombre, its been that long, lol.

  2. How does finger detangling work for you?? It gets the job done....and its not as rough on your hair!

  3. Wow its long when you stretch it. I have naturally curly hair, (ringlets) but I try not to flat iron it during the summer months. The humidity just makes it impossible to keep straight. Since I stopped using heat styling my hair has thrived! It is now down to my tailbone!! I will probably flat iron it a few times this winter and do a post on it. My hair has always been long but I realized that the heat was keeping it at one length and causing split ends so I cute down to 2-3 times per year for about 2 years now.

    1. It is long when I stretch it, which is what makes me long for my straight hair every now and then. Your hair is absolutely gorgeous. I want my hair to get to about that length and I would probably be in a better place with it than I am now. I've though about heat styling mine, but like you've said there are drawbacks to that, so I'm in a weird space with my hair. I hope to figure something out soon!!}

  4. Finger detangling doesn't work for me either. I use this shower comb from Sally's and it truly is my best friend. With pretty much any cheap conditioner and that comb I can more easily get through my hair, except for when I need a trim - then my ends curl and pop all over the place. Don't know if you saw this, but I finally straightened my hair; kept it in a ponytail the whole time though cause I had forgotten what to do with it. LOL When 4c Meets the Flat Iron After 3 Years.


What are you thoughts?!
