Technical Difficulties … Please Stand By


… and the mighty power of the natural hair blogger.

Okay, not really. I’m just tired y’all!!!! LOL!! I have TONS of GOC submissions, several guest features and a few hairstories waiting in my e-mail for you. So, if you’ve sent me something, thank you and don’t worry. I probably have it as there are about 60 flagged e-mails in my inbox!! But, I was just soooo exhausted after getting home from work at 8 p.m. after sitting with a regulatory proposal for 3 hours. I just couldn’t. My mind was shot and I only had enough in me to reply to comments and create a Facebook album in response to concern that I have heat damage from getting my hair pressed in February. I wanted to to demonstrate why I don’t believe that is the case as my hair is pretty much the same as it always has been, though longer.

As I indicated in the comments on Terressentials Mud Wash: The Newly Initiated, my nape hair is fine, of thin density and almost straight.

The crown is the curliest part of my hair and the curls in the lower half of my hair are significantly looser than the top due to over-zealous hennaing in 2010. I also experienced “The Great Shed of 2010,” which I attribute to an allergic reaction to amla. So, I believe that my “new growth” is denser than the length of my hair. Finally, when you add in my shorter crown area, I have an irregular perimeter that forms an inverted “W” if I let my hair do its own thing. Anywho, the album was to show the difference in textures and my fine/low density nape. Now that I think about it, I’ll have to take pics of showing the length of my crown area hair compared to the sides and middle nape. So, ultimately, I don’t think I need a cut to get rid of heat damage. I do need a trim to bring my longest lengths a little closer to my shorter. But, I will not be evening my hair out as I’m still testing the Chicoro Lead Hair Theory.

Now, back to the “non-technical” difficulties;). I hope to put together a couple of the GOC contender posts for you guys tomorrow and throughout the rest of the week. However, I’m not sure when I’ll get in tonight as I’ll be heading to a Brooklyn High School to be a guest at a Natural Hair Workshop. I hope that goes well!! I’ll take pics and, you know, in a month or two, I’ll do a post about the event;)! LMBO!!

Okay, that is all. Gotta do my Abs of Steel and then get ready for work. The exercise routine has also been a mess and a struggle. But, I’m determined to get it back together as I have a goal and great motivator coming up this summer, which I’ll share in my own GOC submission!

Lata Gatas!!
