I went for a little trim to even out my ends and the lady cut off a lot of my length :-(. While I was very upset that the lady set my growth back by about 3 months, I was very glad that my hair had great shape. Prior to getting the trim, I had snipped out the last bits of heat-damaged hair and it was pretty obvious how much shorter that section was. I suspect the stylist wanted to make my hair look layered. I’d say she did a great job.
I’ve come to accept the fact that I’m not willing to expend the energy to put my hair into protective styles, so I’ve settled on the Tightly Curly method as my standard way of wearing my hair out. I’ve been swimming twice a week, so it works well for me to wear my hair out rather than expend the time and energy to wear protective styles knowing that I’ll be back in the pool 3 days later. I really like the Tightly Curly method, because my hair air drys with this wonderful definition and the curls are pretty resilient. At night, I twist them up in 6 sections, pull them taught across my head and bobbie pin them in place in order to keep them from shrinking. I’m really glad that I decided to try it. I did a video on my first time doing the Tightly Curly Method:
Something new for the month of May:
This month I ordered two wigs to wear when I wanted a change. I’d been seeing a lot of YouTubers do reviews on the Beshe Drew wig and I just had to try it.
I also ordered the FreeTress Lady Michelle wig.
Both are lace front wigs. I’m looking forward to having bigger curly hair with the Beshe Drew and sleek shoulder length hair with the Lady Michelle. Changing things up with help me avoid getting bored with my hair.
Health & Fitness
I’m finally losing weight now that I’m healthy. I’ve dropped down below 150 lbs and I fully expect to reach my goal weight of 145 by the end of the month. I’ll consider myself successful if I can maintain the weight for at least 6 weeks after reaching it. It has really been a matter of being mindful of what I eat and how much I eat. I don’t say “no” to any food, I simply limit the amount that I enjoy. Juicing is still a big part of my diet and I don’t see myself changing that any time soon. I do need to find new recipes/veggie and fruit mixes to add to my juicing routine to keep things fresh.
