Project Scale Down: Day 10


It wasn’t much, but a little of something is better than a little of nothing. I feel like 7 hours of untwisting hair should count for something too, right?

Okay, still feeling a little under the weather, took some DayQuil (was out of the night variety), Emergen-C and my vitamins/supplements. Hitting the sack with plans to wake up early to wash this mop and do something with it before work.

Day 10:

  • 10 minute Abs of Steel routine (p.m.)


The Take Down Continues: 11 Hours and Counting



The face says it all, doesn’t it?

On Tuesday night, I spent 5 1/2 hours taking out most of the twists in the back of my hair. It was horrendous, 2 bottles of spray detangler, EVOO, Aussie Moist … and nothing helped make it faster or easier. Last night, I “bathed” the remaining twists in EVOO, made 5 evenly sized big twists, donned two plastic caps, a shower cap and worked out for about 30 minutes for an improptu “steam.” I resumed the take down at 8:30 pm. I was up until to 2 am. It took me 5 1/2 hours to get through 2 section. There are 3 sections left. I am exhausted. Let the nightmare continue. Now, I think this may be The Worst Thing Ever. Okay, maybe not … I think I’ll still have hair after this is over. But this is traumatizing.  *sigh*

I’ll have a full run down next week.
