A Time to Trim

Standard

pre-trim_june2013

Yeah … so, I’ve been pretty absentee around here lately in regard to any substantive hair and fitness updates. Between a very demanding and hectic work schedule and my daily workouts … I’ve just had no energy or attention span to write blog posts … though, I’m active on my Facebook and Instagram pages daily *hint hint* LOL!!

Anywho, as I alluded to, my personal 365 Days of Fitness challenge is still in full effect and I finished day 157 this morning. I’m quickly approaching the halfway mark; that’s when the real challenge begins as I’m trying to break the yo-you pattern that I’ve been stuck in for the last decade. I started a new program at the recommendation of my girl, Christabel of Chy’s Curlz, and it should help get me over the 6 month hump and “break the cycle.” I began the 12 Week Strong Curves At-Home Bodyweight Program from Bret Contrera’s book, Strong Curves: A Woman’s Guide to Building a Better Butt and Body, on July 1st and I have one workout left in week 4. Buuuuuuttttt, this isn’t a fitness post, so more on that on another day … soon … I hope!! 😉

Welp, speaking of what type of post this is … it is about HAIR and I hope that it will be the catalyst to me resuming a more regular posting schedule! Just like I’ve set fitness goals, I’m am setting a Hairscapades goal to resume blogging at least once or twice a week. That’s very doable. So, I just need to suck it up, control my self-diagnosed AADD (Adult Attention Deficit Disorder ;)), and get ‘er done!

Okay … now that that is out of the way. Here is the first of several short hair updates related to the going ons of the last couple of months!!

Six-Month Trim

Back in June, my old GOC buddy and curlfriend, Tiffany, hosted another haircut party with my natural hairstylist and Curl Whisperer, Tameeka aka Jaded Tresses (check out prior haircut party recaps herehere, and here). It was about time for my 6 month trim, so I decided to wash, condition, stretch to air dry, and lightly press my hair (one pass with the flat iron at 300°) for the occasion. After, pressing in the morning, I placed my hair in a bun for hot yoga and this was my hair after I took my shower and was ready to head to the party.

Yeah … those beach waves lasted all of 5 minutes #wompwomp. It was super humid and HOT and by the time I was sitting in the chair to get my hair trimmed … it looked like the this:

And, after the trim (I was going for cleaned up, but not blunt, ends):

And … because it was crazy hot and humid … I rocked a simple, but cute, single twist ponytail for the majority of the week.

And that’s it for my first hair update!! Next time … I revisit the Curly ‘Fro!!

Oh, and before I leave … it’s POLL TIME!!! So … ya know … all the stuff that I just shared here, I shared on Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter as they happened. That being said, I’m wondering if this is redundant material for most people or if it is new for many who don’t follow me on those other platforms or prefer the blog. So, hope you’ll participate in the poll to help me gauge how to proceed!! Thank you in advance!!

(p.s. It felt REALLY good to write again!! Gotta make this a habit! LOL ;)!!)

    • Got it!! Thanks for the feedback Nikki!! From what I’m seeing in the poll results so far, looks like there are many who don’t follow on any other platform. So, that makes me feel better about posting things I’ve posted elsewhere in the past!!
