I’m Bringing It Back!


Okay ladies, I’m coming to you crying tears of sadness again as comments, ratings and likes have been pretty scarce :(. *lol*

As I mentioned when I ran this poll the first time, I know how it is. Sometimes you don’t have anything to say or you mean to comment, but can’t because … ya know, you’re at work and not supposed to be on hair blogs. Or maybe you visit a site every day, but don’t even think about commenting or rating. Or maybe you really, really, really want to comment, but just don’t have the 30 minutes it takes to enter your info and decipher the CAPTCHA: “supercalifragilisticexpialidocious” to get past the spam firewall. But, you know, comments, likes and ratings are a bloggers bread and butter … they let us know that you are actually enjoying what you’re reading and seeing and want us to keep doing this thing ;).

So, anywho, just to hopefully make myself feel better ;), I’m bringing back a couple of polls I did in January. There was a GREAT response and I had a grin from ear to ear for a couple of weeks:). If you already answered these polls, thank you very much for brightening my January!! But, I don’t think you can do them again. For those who always comment, thank you so much as I read every single one and get so excited when I see a new message in my inbox!! For everyone, if you have any thoughts that you’d like to share, I’m all about it!! If there is anything that you’d like to see or read more of, I’m open to suggestions about that too, so use that comments section ;)!!

And, without further ado (shoot, I probably lost a few people who didn’t make it through that intro!), here are the polls!!


April GOC Update: Marcia (#17)


Here are the deets from April and my hair adventures….

April was interesting because I started to notice a lot of shedding. Not sure if it is the change in seasons or what. I also started doing braid outs instead of twist-outs. I have had good success with the braid outs lately and love the definition. I tried it before in December with disastrous results. In the middle of April, I got real busy and missed a wash week, meaning it was two weeks before I could wash my hair. BIG MISTAKE. I learned that I have to wash weekly.

I got my replacement steamer, so I steamed twice in April. I am still using the amla, brahmi and shikaki powders to pre-poo. I wash and deep condition and sit under the steamer. I am still narrowing down hair products. In April, I experimented with two of my CurlBox samples, Brown Butter Beauty and Darcy Botanicals. Both worked well, so I’m trying to really stop my product junkie behavior (I need an intervention). I’ve noticed with the warmer months, my hair is “growing.” I already have BIG hair … but with the heat, it’s growing and the definition fades by the end of the day. In the winter, I wasn’t using a styler or gel, but I am now starting to experiment with gels. I think now that it’s getting humid, a styler is necessary.

Health & Fitness:
As far as exercise … it was a BUST!!!!!! I did eat better and was more conscious of what I was eating. I also increased my daily water intake. I added Green Vibrance to my daily smoothie … still not sure what the Green Vibrance is doing. I didn’t feel the energy that everyone boasts about. In May, I will get back to working out and trying to shed a few pounds.

Wanna see where it all began … like, one whole month ago *lol*? Then, check out Marcia first GOC post here.
